20 Exotic Dishes That Will Make You Drool or Think Twice


Balut is a duck meat dish that is popular in the Philippines. A lot of people from around the world eat duck but this dish serves duck with a twist. It is basically a fertilized duck egg. The eggs are served with a hole and they contain a grown duck embryo. To get the taste, you have to pierce the duck egg first and sip the liquid inside then break the shell and eat the entire developing duck baby. Usually, the balut is eaten when the egg is 17 days old but some people wait till it is 21 days old and the duck has developed beak and feathers.
