With all the crap I've seen Andrew Zimmern eat, and to know this is the one thing he cannot force himself to injest?

Per the wiki posted earlier.
Quote:
The five cells are silky-white within, and are filled with a mass of firm, cream-coloured pulp, containing about three seeds each. This pulp is the edible part, and its consistence and flavour are indescribable. A rich custard highly flavoured with almonds gives the best general idea of it, but there are occasional wafts of flavour that call to mind cream-cheese, onion-sauce, sherry-wine, and other incongruous dishes. Then there is a rich glutinous smoothness in the pulp which nothing else possesses, but which adds to its delicacy. It is neither acidic nor sweet nor juicy; yet it wants neither of these qualities, for it is in itself perfect. It produces no nausea or other bad effect, and the more you eat of it the less you feel inclined to stop. In fact, to eat Durians is a new sensation worth a voyage to the East to experience. ... as producing a food of the most exquisite flavour it is unsurpassed.[39][a]
. Sounds wonderful just do eeeeet

They also had some hard boiled eggs at the counter. There was a handwritten cardboard sign that said "This is NOT Balut!"

Per the wiki article. Tells me all I need to know. " The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as rotten onions, turpentine, and raw sewage. The persistence of its odour, which may linger for several days, has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia".

I've had Durian a few times while in SEA. It's pretty good.

Do it outside for sure. Wear some gloves. Try it with a clothespin, and then not.

Balut is not a big deal if you can get over the "I'm eating a baby chick" thing.

Hakarl, Stinkheads and Surstromming on the other hand...
