How do you like your 'balut'?

When you travel to other lands, one of the premium goal is to sample all the local food that are entirely indigenous to the natives, though sometime scary looking.

One such meal is the Filipino "Balut"! It's a duck egg which is cooked when the embryo is fully transformed to a duckling and just before it hatches. Of course the vegans and animal rights people consider this practice 'inhumane' and would love to stop it, but there's noting they can do, it's a tradition. It is not a pretty sight to an outsider, but to Filipinos, it's a delectable treat and they crave it daily. There is even the belief that it cures a variety of illnesses, boost male sexual performance and increases fertility in women. None of those claims have been proven however.

Balut is quite unsightly and somewhat nauseating to the rest of us, but to Filipinos, it lovely sight to behold and consume daily, so much that many mass producing Balut farms exist to keep the supply flowing. It's unlikely that anyone has died or suffered major illness from Balut consumption, so don't fear it. Make it an item on your bucket list and take a trip to the Philippines, and record a video of your first experience with Balut. It will go viral!
