    I know that there are a lot of Filipinos here, so I thought that I'd share my first balut experience! Shot with the GF2 + 14/2.5

    I guess that I should mention that the video is NSFSS - Not Safe For Sensitive Stomachs...

    I suggest that people Google "balut" before watching the video. Hint - it's a duck.

    It's as cruel as eating your sunday morning omelette. It is an egg. And it tastes 100x eggier than your regular egg. Yum.

    LOL! Making me hungry John! I could down 5 of those if I didn't have to watch my cholesterol. I like mine with a little Tabasco sauce for that extra kick

    Looks rather strange, but I probably wouldn't mind trying one. How does it taste?

    Its offensive how people say, "disgusting" to some other peoples' culture/food without even thinking that those people might see it.


    Never the less, it tastes good... With red horse, happy horse!

    Still not as cool as eating/drinking beating snake's heart in snake's blood in Vietnam, but close enough ;) Happy to see you on video John :smile:

    POP!


    (yes... I've made that mistake with Balut. Haven't had it since I was a kid living with parents)
