Tonight everybody (me excluded) snacked on The Philippines most famous weird food: balut. Balut is a fertilized egg — a duck fetus — halfway grown in the egg, and then eaten. The appearance is simply awful, but according to Andrew Zimmern, whose job is to eat strange foods, the taste is akin to scrambled eggs with the flavor turned up to 11.
Note the fetus on the plate. Those with a sturdier palate eat the fetus, which apparently is without bones or feathers. The rest only eat the yolk and amniotic fluid.
