Maalat - salted eggs?

I always thought the red eggs at Filipino markets were balut. However, recently I saw them at a farmers market with one cut in half. Sort of like looking at an accident I wanted to see the inside of a balut. Turns out they were labeled maalat. It was anti-climatic.

Anyway, how do you eat them and with what? Are they different from Chinese salted eggs?

This site has a picture of the outside and inside of these eggs.
