This thing is called "balut" and it's actually good. I still eat it every now and then especially during the winter season. Different area has different way of eating it so yeah it's not as bad as it looks. Filipinos love it a lot.
Anyway, back to the story about the lizard serving at the local eateries. I am not surprised at all that is occurred in VN since people are poor. However, I am shocked that it mentioned Ba Ria - Vung Tau area. These are tourist places and both of them have grown considerably since my last visit. I imagined you find such stuffs in Chau Doc or the central area. Weird. Nice to know and thanks for sharing. I don't mind trying it the next time I hit town. I don't gross out easily since I am used to the living situation in most poverty places.
