Thai surf n’ turf

You frequently see stands like this all over the countryside in Thailand. Oftentimes you will encounter a stretch of highway littered with ten or more of these stands in a row, each about 100 meters apart, and all waiting for a hungry customer to pull up.

Called gun gai yang [กึ๋นไก่ย่าง] in Thai, gizzards are a secondary stomach used by some animals to grind up food. They are actually quite a popular food throughout the world.

Undeveloped chicken eggs

The title of this post may be a bit deceiving.  Unhatched wouldn’t work because no egg is hatched. ‘Egg that hasn’t come out of the chicken yet’ doesn’t quite sound right.  Unborn wouldn’t work…or would it?
