Conversely, Balut has one of the lowest audience ratings, with only 2.7 stars. An uncommon yet well-known Filipino dish called Balut is a hard-boiled duck egg that frequently offered as street food.

TasteAtlas stated: “Traditionally, the cooked embryo is consumed directly from the shell. It is a duck egg that has been hard-boiled, fertilized, and incubated.”

Balut, reffered as one of the odd Egg dishes can be seasoned with vinegar, salt, chili, and garlic. The food guide also stated that “it is still a poor man’s meal in the Philippines.”

Balut has previously been on “extreme” eating battles in international reality programs like Fear Factor and Survivor.

According to the TasteAtlas aggregated ranking released on August 3, other Filipino dishes including sinigang, bulalo, and tinola were among the top 50 greatest soup dishes worldwide for August.
