[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

Real "birds nest soup" is made from bird spit - the gooey, stringy saliva that Chinese swiftlets use to attach their nests to the walls of caves. The hardened saliva is prized for it's medicinal and aphrodisiac properties. The license fee to harvest one cave? $100,000. The soup is a simple chicken broth, with one good dollop of bird spit in it.

I had birds nest soup once, or at least was told it was BNS. All I could taste was chicken....but then, in the end, doesn't everything taste like chicken. :)
