Bretman Rock recently taught the internet how to eat balut in a TikTok video that went viral last week.
About the video: The social media personality introduced the video from July 9 by saying that balut is one of his favorite Filipino streets foods and one of his mom’s cravings when she was pregnant with him.
By now, a lot of people already know or at least heard of Balut, a very popular delicacy in Southeast Asia but particularly in the Philippines. What some people fail to understand, though, is that this delicacy, no matter how grotesque it may look like, is actually enjoyed by many Filipinos and other people from Asia.1. Looks can be deceiving — I mean it!
Right off the bat, balut looks nothing more than just an ordinary egg – no BS, no trendy stuff; just plain-looking egg until you start to crack it.
A Malaysian woman is winning the hearts of many netizens for hatching and raising a duckling from the balut she got around two years ago.
The heartwarming story started around two years ago when Erica Lim bought a balut – a developing bird embryo dish that is a popular delicacy in many Southeast Asian countries like Cambodia, Thailand, and Philippines to name a few – out of impulse from a Vietnamese restaurant in Puchong, Malaysia, according to Bored Panda.
Eighty global delicacies including balut and durian will be featured in the Disgusting Food Museum in the Swedish town Malmö from now until Jan. 27.
The museum will have mostly replicas and interactive exhibits and videos, according to Business Insider.
