    Yep, Argyle is your best bet. My BF eats it regularly. I'm not a fan.

      Hoa Nam Grocery on Argyle has had it in the past.
      1101-3 W. Argyle
      This fun article mentions another potential source: Tai Nam Market, 4925 N. Broadway

        Yes, I second this location...I was there just a couple weeks ago and they had tons of balut. I was astonished to see it there since I've only read about/seen it on food shows...but its there!
