How to Eat Balut
- June 20, 2021
To eat balut, start by finding the stamped end of the egg if there is one, or the fatter, more rounded end if there isn’t. Then, tap that end of the egg with the bottom of a spoon to break the shell, and pick away the cracked pieces to make a small opening. After that, make sure you pick away the layer of skin just below the shell, so you have access to the broth. Next, season the broth to taste before you suck it from the hole. When you finish the broth, peel off the rest of the shell, season the egg, and enjoy it in a couple of big bites! To learn how to make balut, keep reading!
