When you just don't know what to do with that stuff


leave a comment »

Common streetfood throughout Southeast Asia, the phenomenon has made itself known throughout the world as one of the most interesting delicacies. A popular spectacle for reality TV shows, most people, in places like the Philippines, don’t think twice at the sight of a fertilized duck embryo in their hand.

Prepared by boiling, the cooked balut is enjoyed like the traditional hard-boiled chicken egg. Upon cracking open the shell, there is a tasty broth that surrounds the duck embryo. Add a little salt and the contents of the balut can be consumed — at times, the white of the egg may get tough and is left behind.
