The duck fetuses that Andrew tried are probably 15 days old so the duck/mallard does not appear as a duck/mallard yet. It is enveloped in a white membrane and the local term for it is "balut sa puti" or literally: wrapped in white.
This is the first episode to feature Andrew's catch phrase: "If it looks good, eat it." Even though, early in the episode he tells the audience that disgusting-looking foods usually taste neutral.
Andrew: Who knows what I'll enjoy next? Jellyfish salad in China? Grilled Guinea pig in Ecuador? Who knows, but you know what I always say, if it looks good, eat it!
Andrew: This is certainly one of the strangest things I've eaten... bar none. (about the mangrove worms
Andrew: This is Zimmern's law number 75--the way more disgusting the food looks, the more neutral it tastes.
Andrew: Usually, when somebody says, "Oh, eat this, it's going to be good for you," it means it's going to taste a little strange.
Andrew: (on trying purple yam and cheese ice cream served in a bun) It's just not right. But, I defend your right to eat it to the death. It just tastes like frozen butter on a bun.
Andrew: Now, a balut is a fertilized duck embryo that's steamed and served in the shell. It's about 18 days old. It's basically a hard boiled egg with a beak, feathers, feet. If that doesn't sound absolutely crazy bizarre I don't know what does.
