Nothing can prepare you for such a unique fare. I've read about it on various websites and even searched out pictures of this creature.
I'd learnt from the very start that you never take balut lightly and when a host offers it to you, one must never reject it. You see, balut is an egg with a fertilised duck in it. This delicacy can be found around South East Asia but really, I believe it is popular in Philippines. Thus it becomes as much as a welcome gift from them as In Singapore where we offer our very own delicacy to our foreign guests - durian.
Favorite Dish: Take your pick. You can try the 17-day old eggs where the beaks and bones are not formed or for those who are brave enough, you can go for the 21-day-old eggs where you can chew on the bones, beak and everything else.
Being less adventurous, I decided to go for the younger egg. First you knock one end of the egg. You then peel the top shell, then you suck on the juice. It tasted like well, egg juice?
Then you continue to peel off the rest and what you have is a softer top where you can see the little under-formed duckling, and the bottom half which is alot harder and not so nice to eat.
Put a little salt and once you're ready, go for it!
Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$10
