A balut is a fertilized chicken egg with developed embrio inside, that is boiled and eaten with a sprinkle of salt. It’s very popular here in the Philippines and widely eaten as a street food. It is believed to be an aphrodisiac.
When you close your eyes and don’t know what are you eating it tastes almost like any other egg.
If I know what I’m about to eat, I can’t. My stomach goes up and no way I’m putting that thing in my mouth. Maybe my mother is right, maybe I’m just not hungry enough.
