Recommendation by Lemi
In the Philippines, we like our eggs fertilized and mature—not for breakfast, but late at night over drinks. Balut, as its called, is a local delicacy and all-around right of passage for foreigners! Santa Martha’s Balut Industry is the go-to in the Municipality of Pateros a.k.a. the Philippine balut capital. A little birdie may have told you about the duck embryo inside, and the reports are true. Crack open a hole in the shell and peek a seventeen-day old chick coiled within, feathers, beak and all. Slurp the embryonic soup and down that baby birdie!
