A balut or balot is a developing duck embryo that is boiled and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines. They are common food in countries in Southeast Asia, such as Laos, Cambodia (pong tia koon ពងទាកូន in Cambodian) and Vietnam (trứng vịt lộn or hột vịt lộn in Vietnamese). They are often served with beer. The Filipino and Malay word balut (balot) means "wrapped" – depending on pronunciation. (source: wikipedia) #exotic
The fried itik is actually cooked just like “chicken adobo,” allowing its meat to soften and absorb the flavors of the garlic, pepper, vinegar, and soy sauce, before it is fried into golden brown perfection. ~ by eaturistas
Kinulob na Itik (duck) is typically boiled for hours and then deep fried for it to become crispy. Sampaloc and other spices such as onion and garlic are added to enhance the flavor. It is usually sold in a banana leaf with sarsa. The meat is a bit tough but very tasty. It is definitely a unique dish only from Victoria. ~ from Choose Philippines
