Balut, strange food from East Asia

#1
Even those with an iron stomach may cringe at the sight of the balut egg. Unlike any hard boiled egg you’ve seen before, the balut egg offers an added bonus; there, next to the yolk, is the tiny, hard-boiled carcass of a duck fetus.
The sight of a small animal inside of your hard-boiled egg is usually the stuff of nightmares, but in the Philippines, its the stuff of culinary fascination.
