This savory-looking meal is a balut. It is nothing more than a fertilized duck embryo boiled while alive, and then eaten from its shell.
If this looks like it among the bizarre things to eat, perhaps it will be more appealing to know that it is believed to be an aphrodisiac. It’s naturally high in protein, and offered for you to enjoy in parts of Southeast Asia. It is commonly sold on the streets by vendors. In the Philippines, you can hear the vendor yelling, “Balut, balut”, until a customer arrives.
