Spring Eggs boiled in Boys Urine – A Chinese Delicacy
The dish, spring eggs hardboiled in boys’ urine has been a local delicacy in Dongyang, Zhejiang province, eastern China, for thousands of years and now traditional chefs in China are hoping their local specialty will catch on worldwide.
“The urine is gathered from local schools and the very best comes from boys under 10 years old. They pee in buckets and we collect it fresh every day,” explained chef Lu Ming.
According Ming, in addition to being a tasty treat (allegedly), possess certain curative powers. Some of their attributes include the ability to stop fevers and serve as a “pick me up” if you’re feeling tired. Honestly, I’d prefer a Red Bull, as the taste of carbonated battery acid is only slightly less nauseating than urine.
In most places, spring is all about the smell of blooming flowers, but I’m guessing you can probably guess what the streets of Dongyang smells like.
