11 Most Awful Meals In The World
Different people of the world have different tastes when it comes to food. What is delicious in one country is absolutely disgusting in another. And it’s okay – variety is the spice of life.
But there are some dishes that just make you wonder what those people were thinking inventing such abominations. Here are eleven examples of that.
1. Egg With Embryo
Some people like their eggs hard-boiled, some like them scrambled or simply fried, and in some countries of Southeast Asia, they like their eggs with a chicken or duck embryo right there inside. This regional dish, known as balut, is a fertilized egg with an almost fully developed embryo or even fetus inside of it.
The eggs we normally buy at the store are unfertilized. Although it’s gross, think of it as menstruation – the eggs we eat are the product of hen’s period. Fertilized eggs like balut contain chickens or ducks that, with better luck, would’ve hatched and lived a happy life (at least until it ended up on our plate as chicken nuggets).
In the Philippines, people usually eat this eggs with a little salt and chili, maybe some garlic and definitely white vinegar or coconut sap. They say it’s delicious, but we’ll just take their word for it.
