Zac Efron shares memorable experience with balut
The Greatest Showman star Zac Efron had a memorable trip to the Philippines recently and took home a lot of great experiences from his visit, a fact he recounted during the press tour of his latest movie.
Like many foreigners, Efron was exposed to the Philippines’ wide range of Pinoy delicacies. In an interview with GMA reporter Lyn Ching, he admitted that the one thing that stuck with him to this very day (aside from the beauty of the beaches and his adventure trip to Albay) was the word balut.
His co-star Zendaya, who was also present during the interview looked intrigued and interested so Zac went on to explain what the balut was all about.
“It’s like an egg that’s been fertilized. It’s like a little bit grown chicken, but you still eat it and it’s still delicious,” he explained like a pro.
Zendaya agreed that the concept was interesting and that she would be interested to pay a visit to the Philippines as well.
While many have backed out of experiencing balut because of its unique concept, we’re pretty glad these former Disney stars have a fine appreciation for food that is so much part of our culture. (ANGEL ONG)
