We Ate Balut -- The Absolute Strangest Food You Can Find In New York

Maharlika is a restaurant in Manhattan’s East Village that sells one of the strangest foods you can buy in New York City. It’s called balut, and it’s basically a hard boiled egg with a partially formed duck foetus inside.

We learned how to properly eat a balut from Maharlika owner Nicole Ponseca, and then took some back with us to the Business Insider offices to see how our co-workers would react.
