    I somehow missed this in the Philippines – not that I’m too upset over my loss. I don’t mind rocky mountain oysters, but I’m not sure I feel the need to try too many different types of testicle preparations. I did have some fun trying to explain what they were in Singapore, though.

      Ha ha, yes it can be fun to explain what you are looking for. Best to find someone with a sense of humor. And, I agree, once was enough for me!

    Great story here! I had a bowl of Soup #5 in Manila and it included some pretty mysterious cuts of animal within it. I’m sure there were more than a handfull of testicles in that soup. I also sampled a grilled goat testicle in East Africa…pretty fatty.

      Yea, they like to add in an odd bit of throat, gullet and anything else once attached to testicles in one way or another! :)

    Itlog must be slang, the caviar from lobster and crab is also called itlog. Eggs from chickens are itlog. Filipinos are famous for disguising the real truth.
