Watch Me Eat Horse Pee Egg – a Thai Food Delicacy

I was shocked to find this post this morning –

Kai Yiew Ma: Preserved Egg with Horse’s Pee!!!!

I could never take watching directly, but I have looked out of the corner of my eye as my lovely wife downed these Horse Pee Eggs… you know, the eggs that are pretty pink on the outside and decaying black fungus-like guck on the inside?

She offered me these things over and over and I could never stomach the idea of eating even a bit of it. Thai food is supposed to be delicious – salty, sour, spicy… not fermented and smelly – right? That’s for Filipinos and their baloot (balut?)

Today I’ll eat some. At least a bite for my YouTube channel’s sake. I will vomit if I eat an entire egg – I’m sure of it. I’m not at all sure I won’t heave with just a bite. I think it depends on the smell. These things sit for 30 days… growing stuff inside.

Join me at Youtube for this later today… I think it will be up by 1600 hours Thai time.

UPDATE – it’s 5/30 and I’ve STILL not eaten that thing. I’ll try to work up to it tomorrow.

Cheers…
