The Infamy of Balut

Tasty. Juicy. Evil. It’s given. Not many foreigners would even get close to this delicacy. It looks safe from the outside, but dangerous on the inside. Who would have thought about boiling an under-developed duck embryo and eat it afterwards? They say this delicacy originated from the Chinese way back the history of the Philippines. It doesn’t really matter. I like balut and I don’t even know why. Would you dare?

  1. I miss balot so much. My husband, a foreigner, wouldn`t even taste it. Just a look at it made him scrunch up his face. I say he`s missing a lot by not even trying it. I miss Pinoy foods so much >-<
