Balut – An Exotic Food in the Philippines

Wherever you go in the Philippines, you will surely find this delicious exotic food known as balut.

What is a balut?

Some people describe balut as a duck embryo. Which by that definition, some people would find the food disgusting without even tasting it.

To put the definition lightly end more accurate, balut is a duck egg incubated for 16-18 days. Sometimes 19 or 20 days (which I will not recommend for new eaters).

The balut that I’m holding is of 18 days.

Ok, I stopped myself from making a full description of what you see here. The description might not be appealing to some people. 

Anyways, the egg is boiled and best eaten while it’s hot. Some prefer to sprinkle it with a pinch of salt. Some want it with spicy vinegar.
