Balut… To Eat or Not to Eat?

Balut is a national food of The Philippines. Not everyone eats it but most do. And surely everyone knows about it or has at least tasted it. I have been told that I have to try it when I get there. While I am pretty daring and willing to try anything new, I just cant see this getting past my tongue without my gag reflex initiating. I like boiled eggs just as much as the next person but something about eating a steamed partially developed duck embryo doesn’t get my taste buds dancing. Does it look appetizing to you? What do you think, could you do it? Tough guy…

  1. That does NOT look appetizing!!! BUT I’D STILL TRY IT!! I figure that if an entire nation of people enjoy it, then it really cant be all that bad lol

  2. I’m going to say definitely not especially sine I am full on against eating duck in the first place. A duck abortion will be a hell no!

  3. Balut is one of the exotic food here in Philippines , it’s not bad after all.just close your eyes and try to put salt and vinegar… =) =) =)
