Filipino food

This is one of the  two faces that seem to follow you around Manila (the other is Messianical Filipino boxing star Manny Pacquiao.) It seems to pop up on every other block, citywide. It is the logo for the “Jollibee” fast food chain.

Below, a more traditional Filipino fast food, balut. It consists of a fertilised hard boiled egg, containing a fully formed (and feathery) duck embryo. It tastes… crunchy.

Why is that egg dish somehow worse than eating regular duck meat. Ew.
