    They had one delight when I was last there that made me ill .It was a concoction of squid ink and sea urchin gonads that they all gobbled down .It stained the teeth and mouth black running down from the lips and made their breath smell like fishy dogs barf .Rather like a Filipino balut breath but not as bad .After eating one of those eggs the breath smells like a newly open coffin of some antiquity .


    Balut (egg):
    A balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines. They are common, everyday food in some other countries in Southeast Asia, such as in Laos (where it is called Khai Luk), Cambodia (Pong tea khon in Cambodian), and Vietnam (Trứng vịt lộn or Hột vịt lộn in Vietnamese). Popularly believed to be an aphrodisiac and considered a high-protein, hearty snack, balut are mostly sold by street vendors in the regions where they are available. They are often served with beer. The Filipino and Malay word balut (balot) means "wrapped" – depending on pronunciation.
