Real Taspar eggs

Story

Called "Balut", it's a Philippine delicacy that looks like and is eaten exactly the same way we saw Gul Madred & Picard eating Taspar eggs in Chain Of Command.

The 18-day-old fertilized duck egg -- a snack widely eaten in the Philippines -- has revolted even the most daring foodies with its carnal textures, earning it lofty rankings on many a "most disgusting/strange/terrifying food" list.
....balut's combination of savory soup, fresh meaty bird and warm yolk is a revelation.
I really can't imagine ever wanting to try something like this.
