Scary foods in Charlotte 

If you are looking for scary foods around town -- and I don't mean eating at places with low ratings from the health department -- check out some of these dishes.

• Try balut, or trung vit lôn or hôt vit lôn in Vietnamese. This is a fertilized duck or chicken egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside. This embryo is boiled and eaten in the shell. Yum. Balut is in stock on occasion at Da Nang Market, 3646 Central Avenue.

• Or eat brains and eggs at John's Country Kitchen, 1518 Central Ave, one of the only places to get this dish in the Charlotte area now that the Copal Grill has closed.

• Try sliced sea cucumber, the oceans' moving trash collector, in a brown sauce. The Chinese eat this critter to nourish their blood. First blood? Sea cucumber is available in Charlotte at Dragon Court, 4520 North Tryon Street in the Asian Corners Mall.

• The seasonal pan de Muerto is available at all Odalys Panaderia y Pastelerias.

• Dead bread and sugar skulls are also part of the fourth annual Dia de los Muertos at Pura Vida Worldly Art, 1521 Central Ave. The event takes place Saturday, Nov. 1 from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. Admission is free.

• And by the way, the third annual Day of the Dead Festival of Souls is being held Sunday, Nov. 2 from noon until 5 p.m. at the Levine Museum of the New South, 200 E. 7th Street, in partnership with the Latin America Coalition. Free admission, food and, storytelling.
