A duck egg might not sound all that unusual to you, but I had never eaten one before as it’s not a common ingredient in Holland. During my trip to Bali earlier this year I had breakfast at a little restaurant that’s run by the same people as the famous Locavore restaurant. Here I ordered waffles with bacon and fried duck eggs.
The first thing I noticed was that the yolks were considerably bigger than those of regular hen’s eggs. Though for some reason I was expecting a more orange colored yolk. Tasting it, I could not distinguish any difference from a regular hen’s egg. I know other people say they can, so perhaps I just have bad taste buds. Anyway, the dish itself was really nice with the combination of chewy bacon, fluffy waffles and velvety eggs.
