I want to try to create some Spanish influenced pintxos (tapas) with fried quail eggs. Does anyone know anyplace in town where I can find them? Thanks!

I think I saw them Saturday at Pike Place Market, not in the market itself, but across the street (on the side with Starbucks). They had chicken, duck and quail. It is the place that has the empty ostrich egg shells. Sorry I don't have the name.

Uwajimaya also has them, in the sushi section, not the eggs section. I think Alberts is referring to the Pike Place Market Creamery, which I think is in the Sanitary building.

Almost any SE Asian grocery should have them too, and for very cheap. A dozen costs less than $2 usually. And while you're there, buy some actual quails...around here, I buy 6 for $6 from the freezer section (right next to the blue chickens and stewing hens).

The delightful Pike Place Market Creamery (owned by the equally delightfully named Nancy Nipples) stocks quail eggs plus duck, ostrich, goose, and specialty chicken eggs.

Here's their entry from the market site:

Hours: Monday – Saturday 9 am – 6 pm, Sunday 10 am – 5 pm

Hey, I was there on Saturday too! I picked some up for Malarky. She made a quail egg, red onion, creme fraiche, caviar pizza. :rolleyes:

They are 30¢ each. You don't have to buy the typical 6 or 12. You can buy one if you want. They'll line a regular chicken egg carton with paper towels amd place them inside for you.

Someone told me that Uwajimaya also carries them for a bit less.
Drink!

I think University Seafood & Poultry, in the U-district, usually has quail eggs (or at least that is what I think I see out of the corner of my mind's eye).

I'm gearing up to attempt some of the recipes from the T. Bourdain dinner at Brasa.

I walk from the ferry and am wondering where I might find fresh quail eggs nearby.

THANKS !

The Pike Place Creamery has a selection of non-chicken eggs that I beleive includes quail on a regular basis.

If they don't happen to have them there (I've always seen them, so I'm sure they will), you can take the free bus down to Uwajimaya.

Try stores in the International District, such as Lums Seafood. They are also available at both, "Ranch 99 Markets", in Edmonds or Kent delived fresh daily at about 1/2 the price.

I don't say that I do. But don't let it get around that I don't.
