Me vs. Balut

mmmmmmmm…… Just like grandma used to make.

A few weekends ago one of the silly things i said came back to haunt me. I boasted to Derrick and Jaeca that if Jaeca would find and buy a Balut Egg then I’d give it a try. For those of you that don’t know what one of these bad boys are here’s the wikipedia page. Basically Balut is a fertalized duck embryeo. Its eaten in the Philippines and Vietnam.

The taste wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, kinda like chicken gizzard or giblets cooked when you’re making gravy for Thanksgiving..  Its more of a visual thing to get over.  I was pretty full already since I didn’t have much notice when they brought the egg by.  Note the little duck guy wasn’t that bad.  The real nasty part is the yoke.  It seems like a ready made heart attack.

So if you ever think of eating one it isn’t so bad.  Give it a try 🙂
