Where to buy Balut- in Pateros of course!
Balut has taken some bad reputation. They being high on cholesterol and uric acid. But my thoughts on those are simple:
Balut is a very basic food- fertilized 17 day old duck egg boiled in water for 30-45 minutes.
If there is any other food to fear cholesterol or uric acid from, I am sure those are the canned, preserved, ground food swimming in hard-to-pronounce liquid.
I tried it elsewhere, but it really won't do. Here in Jessie's place the balut is EXTREMELY fresh. You can taste the difference.
But I would rather buy the pristine ones.
