At dinner last week at my very favorite sushi restaurant, a bunch of us decided to do quail egg shots.
Why, you ask?
Because we can!
And it really wasn’t bad! I didn’t taste it much because I took it like a shot, but I was told the shot glass contained a quail egg, some onions, soy sauce and hot sauce, masago (the tiny orange fish eggs) and some sort of squid? After I swallowed the egg I tasted some of the hot sauce on my tongue. Next time I’ll have to try keeping it in my mouth for a little bit to see if the experience is any different.
