Hột vịt lộn is called "Trứng vịt lộn" at Northern Vietnam.
Vit means duc. Trung means egg.
They called "balut" in Phillipines.
Chinese called them "máodàn" or "sǐtāidàn".

Almost 90% of Vietnamese (or I heard Filipino) like this.
They consider Hột vịt lộn contains high protain and etcetra.
There are many weired dishes in Asia orworld wide. These are not common and most of them are not deliscious.
Hoever, Hột vịt lộn is very common and you can often see those at street stands in Vietnam.
