FTDW Squared to you.
Let's agree not to quote the Balut pictures.
In any case, YOU WIN!! I had several chances to eat Balut, but I could not do it. I like all the other food you mentioned though (intestine grill, pig ear, etc.)
WARNING!! TO SF MEMBERS OF THE WESTERN WORLD!![/size]
DO NOT SCROLL DOWN ANY FURTHER IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE PICTURES OF BALUT!!
It's usually eaten straight from the egg. I've never really seen the whole thing spread out on a plate like that, except on Fear Factor.
That's fucking gross.
Watch Jeremy Clarkson eat one.
That didn't seem bad or disgusting at all! Looked like he quite enjoyed it (except for the napkin over the head bit).
I must try that sometime.
Makchang! It's what's for dinner tonight.
The Chinese will eat anything with legs except for the table and chairs.
cottage cheese and apple sauce
I used to love the balut as a kid, the broth especially, which looking back is like drinking amniotic fluid. In any case, I stopped eating them when I crunched on a quite mature fetus, with beaks and all.
Still I've tried horse sashimi, sea snale bile, bull penis, salmon and tuna eyeballs, braised turtle, pig blood (as stew in Manila, and as dimsum in China), agave worms (on a dare), field crickets, chitlins or pig intestines and Spam.
No, unsweet. I'm not clicking any link provided in this thread.
You eat it the same way you eat rillettes - with crusty bread, cornichons, and some dijon mustard.
Or you can eat it like Carl ate it - with some of them thar soda crackers, mmhhh.
The latter seems more fitting.
(This is really doing my food snob credentials no favor ....)
That's OK, I'm sure we've all slept with fat women as well.
Still I've tried horse sashimi, sea snale bile,
Where can I try the sea snail bile?
There's this little restaurant in Chinatown (Binondo) that serves turtle soup...
Pig blood dimsum -- is this similar to the cubed chicken blood (a.k.a. Betamax) we get on the street in Manila?
I went to a restaurant that served grilled silkworms/moths. They were still in the shell or whatever and then they peeled them open to expose the wings, then grilled them.
They also had turtles. Served live, flipped over onto their backs, then broken open through their chest using chopsticks.
Jeepers guys. And some of you deride edmorel for his particular method of eating spaghetti!!!!!!!!!!
