    I would advise to never eat a quail egg at a sushi restaurant. They serve them eaw. I ate one (on a dare), on a business trip, years ago. It was the most miserable flight home - ever!

    quail eggs are considered a delicacy in a lot of different cultres.
    personally I love them pickled in a spicy brine.

    ETA:
    we also love pigeon and dove eggs.
    funny thing about those are when boiled the *white* is clear.
    pickle them and in 3 days they start turning a solid white like a normal hard boiled egg.
    its curious to watch.
