Tokneneng are boiled chicken eggs that are dipped in a reddish batter and deep-fried until the batter becomes crispy. Generally, this is considered as a Filipino Street food and sold on the streets along with qwek-qwek, squidballs, fish balls, and kikiam. Speaking of qwek-qwek, tokneneng is simply the bigger version. The cooking method and majority of the ingredients are similar; the only difference is the kind of egg used.
The thing that I like about this street food is its ability to fill your stomach for just a few bucks. Don’t expect too much on the taste because it is basically boiled egg. What you need to do though is dip it in a rich sauce for additional flavor. I like this dipped in sinamak (vinegar with spices); this also tastes good with fish ball sauce.
What sauce do you prefer to dip your Tokneneng in?
