Balut experience

One ohhh so boring night while tart and I were smoking outside the office. A Balut vendor passed by us and we decide to give it a try.

Balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg that is boiled and eaten in the shell.

Now I know that as much as possible we have to avoid eating this delicacy of ours since it is high on bad cholesterol Emphasis on the “BAD”

But hey the last time I was able to eat a Balut was 4-5 years ago since I saw my dad eat it and the duck was almost fully formed (Goosebumps). So this time, I let tart ate the duck part I just stick to the yummy yellow!

I forgot how tasty balut it actually is… Best eaten with salt and spicy vinegar!
