Balut/ balot (eeew!)

A balut or balot is a developing duck embryo that is boiled and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as street food in the Philippines. They are common food in countries in Southeast Asia, such as Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. It was too dark and my hands were trembling, so I could not take a proper pic. This pic, taken from Wikipaedia, shows how the balut looks when peeled. (Davao, Philippines, May 2013)
