Why Balut stall is special ?
Balut stall is located in Manila Zoo area, Malate, Manila. It's known as the balut heaven where people can eat the most famous food from Philippine. Balut is boiled fertilized egg of itik (mallard duck), approximately 16 to 19 days old of incubation with almost fully developed embryo or chick inside the shell. Balut has found also its way on classy food stalls such as this bucket of balut eggs offered to customers at daytime. The cooked duck embryo of a fertilized duck egg is so called balut sa puti because the biggest part of the embryo is still wrapped in egg white, fondly called by Pinoys as bato (stone) being the toughest part of balut that would require a lot of chewing to fully masticate it. Balut is high in protein and is valued by Pinoys for its nutritional benefits, considered by most locales as vigor enhancing delicacy. It's small but the quality of balut there is so perfect.
