Baby Duck Egg

Da Nang people usually call this place as Baby duck egg for lover or Hell baby duck egg, of course it’s nothing serious here, it is just because the street restaurant here usually use a small oil lamp for each table that make the place quite dark. The main reason for keeping the dark is quite interesting, because the baby duck egg is one of the 10 most scary food of the world so it is better not to see it even it’s one of the local favorite food. A tiny nice point is that you can change the egg if the duck is too old which mean cannot be eaten.
