[WARNING] This blog is not for the faint hearted!
My bestfriend have been raving on about ducky eggs since a long time ago.
It took me a while to warm up to the dish below. Mind you, I am still luke warm about it!
What are ducky eggs?
In a brief, clinically-non-grotesque description, it is a duck egg with the embryo inside.
I have been tethering the idea whether this is cruel or not. Then it hit me, we all eat unborn chicken – eggs!
My other bestfriend has been itching to go eat these ducky eggs so we all went to Fairfield for our quest, well their quest and my entertainment.
Among this speciality were other very enticing dishes!
Green Papaya Salad – my favourite! Tangy and appetising!
Palette Cleansing – Steamed Mussels
Loas Sausages with Sticky Rice
Grilled Beef Tongue – crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside
Getting ready for the gory stuff – Chicken Feet Salad (this was quite tantilising!)
Ok, so they look pretty tamed?
Then you scoop it out and I am not sure if that is part of the head or the body…
Either way, the meat was very tender but I needed a LOT of mint leaves and lemon juice to down this baby (no pun intended).
To top it off, I had just watched the Hong-Kong thriller “Dumplings” before I went to eat this! The movie is about a lady eating human embryos to keep herself looking young while her husband ate these ducky eggs to keep his youth and stamina! Like I said in the beginning of this post – Not for the faint hearted!
