Pinoy Street Food #3: Balot



as i mentioned on my past blog entry prelude to Pinoy Street Food I will make a blog entries regarding "pinoy street foods" and I will create the succeeding entries in this meme so do please visit every friday and the Food Friday Meme



Balot is a boiled fertilized eggs of duck. producers use a makeshift "x-ray machine" which is made of wooden box with a lighted bulb inside and a small hole. they will place the fertilized egg in that hole to see the embryo's size. if its small, its good for balot. if its too big, they will let it hatch. if none, they will still boil it but it will be called "penoy".

Hahahah gusto ko yung "yellow part" and the "sabaw" yung chick bigay ko lang sa hubby ko...hahaha sarap talaga ang balut! :)

It's funny because I was just watching Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman and the featured country was the Philippines...of course, starring ang balut! :)
