Disgusting Food Item of the Week

January 9, 2009

Hold on to your breakfast, kids.



A balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. They are common, everyday food in some countries in Southeast Asia, such as in the Philippines, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Popularly believed to be an aphrodisiac and considered a high-protein, hearty snack, balut are mostly sold by street vendors at night in the regions where they are available. They are often served with beer.

I think I’d need more than “beer” to wash that nastiness down.  More like  “general anesthesia” or a “blunt force trauma to the head”.

Ick.  Somebody make me stop posting these things.

    Blowfish Testicles

    Apparently a bunch of people got sick whilst eating this oh-so-yummy sounding “delicacy”.
