CHEF RUDY TALKS ABOUT BALUT ON GLOBAL NEWS

Minna Rhee from Global News stops by for her report on Toronto’s adventurous eaters. She wanted to know about BALUT so she came to us. Watch Chef Rudy show her what it’s all about (1:00).

How about you? Do you eat BALUT? Is it fear factor food or a decadent delicacy? Check out the video here.

What is BALUT you might ask? Wikipedia defines it as a developing duck embryo that is boiled alive and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as street food and often served with beer. The Tagalog and Malay word ‘balut’ means wrapped.
