My Philippine Trip – Balut the streetfood

Basically balut is  fertilized chick embryo that is boiled half cooked and eaten in the shell. The Philippines believed that it is a high protein and it is also a healthy snack. Balut is a streetfood and it is a common food in PH. The Philippines prefer balut to be served with salt or chili or garlic and vinegar. Not only in Philippine, in Vietnam, Cambodia and also China, they have this kind of appetizer. In Philippine, the balut is the fertilized chick but in some other places it can be either fertilized duck of chick. It is up to you to choose. Check out the pictures below
