is a half-boiled, ready to hatch duck egg. (You can distinguish
the beak and feathers.) It tastes a little better than it looks.
The inside of the egg resembles a coiled lizard. I try not to
glance at the egg when I eat it. The taste reminds me of the "mustard"
of a Maryland Crab. Men eat balut for energy. One balut a week
is enough to keep you pretty strong.
