    When I was in Ban Me Thout (central highlands), South Vietnam, back in '71, I ate a couple of "mystery meat" sandwiches from a local vendor. There seemed to be fewer cats & dogs 'round the old French hotel than there were the day before. Spent several days taking l'il white pills to stem the tide of the SE Asian version of "Montezumah's Revenge"! :eek: :eek: Made sure I stuck with chow hall food thereafter.... ;)

    hi ritaann,
    you're most welcome to come and visit us..... re your question, one of the delicacies here is the unhatched fertilized duck egg..... this is usually eaten boiled, but now new and exotic cuisines are offered even by trendy restaurants using this as the main ingredient..... if you're interested, you can ask some Filipino caregivers you might be working with.... trying it for the first time light look gross.... some of my former asian classmates closed their eyes and covered their noses when they first tried it.... it worth the adventure.... ;)

    Squid. :eek: Maybe I'm allergic to it or something, or maybe I'm just squeamish, but I spent some time vomiting an hour or so later...

    I don't think I want to eat something that looks as if it came from a science fiction movie. [slimey squid] :doubt:

    You can make quite a nice black sauce from the ink.
    Very taste full with rice.
    A nice contrast in colour.
    But I always wait until after dinner,
    naming the ingredients :D

    hi ritaann,
    i replied to your question already but somehow someway, it went somewhere else....i dont see it in the threads....you are more than welcome to visit us..... re your question, the delicacy here is the unhatched fertilized duck egg.... it is usually eaten boiled but there are new preparations concocted by new and trendy restaurants using this egg as a primary ingredient.... it is tasty and eating some will do wonders especially for those recuperating.... it is an acquired tast though....for the neophytes, they cant imagine eating an unhatched duckling..... my former asian classmates used to close their eyes and cover their noses when they eat it.... eating it is an quite and adventure itself..... am not sure if there are filipino caregivers where you ;) are working at... you may ask them also if you are interested.... bye and have a nice day!

    :) Having been a world traveler, I have ate quiet a few things one perhaps could call weird. (1) Gold (thin) in India. (2) Monkey brains (Saigon)(67-) (3) Rattle Snake (Sweet Water TX). (4) Alligator (New Orleans) (5) Frog Legs (where ever I could get them, love them). and (6) Abalone (San Francisco) (Haven't seen the delicacy for ages now). This is but a few on a long list.

    One man's poison is an other man's pleasure.

    Thanks
