How I make money while traveling the world (and eating)

►How to Start a Travel Blog: https://migrationology.com/how-to-start-a-travel-blog/ ►How to Make Money While Traveling: https://migrationology.com/how-to-make-money-while-traveling/ The number one question I get asked is how I can afford to travel, while making money, and blogging. I'm going to answer how I make money, and also how I can afford to travel and eat in this video. Also, I'll share how I think you can do it too! There are many many ways to make money while traveling, and I have friends that are working on cruise ships, blogging, affiliate marketing, freelance writing, and even skydiving, while earning money to be able to maintain a lifestyle traveling. But instead of sharing all the ways on how to make money traveling, I'll first share the ways I make money. First I want to say that all of these ways that I make money while traveling are all the result of initially starting a blog back in 2009 and committing to writing quality and useful information on it on a regular basis. If you want to make money while traveling, I'd highly recommend you start a blog on whatever you're passionate about and begin blogging high quality useful information to show your expertise, and also connecting with others. (If you're just starting a travel blog, Travel Blog Success is an excellent course that I recommend: https://travelblogsuccess.com/?ref=18 [affiliate]) 1. Affiliate recommendations - This basically means earning a small commission as a referral. There are many companies (places like Amazon and Agoda.com for hotels) that offer a commission if you refer someone to a purchase. As an example, on my website I give away a lot of free useful tips about visiting Bangkok (http://migrationology.com/bangkok-thailand-travel-guide/). And I also recommend a few hotels which, some of which I've previously stayed at, and others which I've just visit and highly recommend. So if you were to click one of the links and book that hotel, I would get a small commission as a referral. I only recommend things that I use myself or trust. 2. My premium travel and food guides - The biggest way I make money while traveling is by selling my premium travel and food guides (http://migrationology.com/travel-guides/). Right now I have the Bangkok 101 things to do guide, Eating Thai Food Guide, Vegetarian Thai Food Guide, and the Delhi travel guide, and I'm working on more. I prefer to sell my own guides than doing advertising on my website, because I can trust in the quality of my own guides. 3. Freelance writing - As a result of first starting my travel blog back in 2009, I've had the opportunity to do numerous freelance writing projects, some big and some small. I've written for a few inflight magazines, as well as CNN Travel, and various other newspapers, magazines, and websites. I used to dislike writing, but the more I started blogging about thing I really enjoyed (like food) the more I enjoyed it. And after committing to it and blogging, I've been able to connect with so many others and had chances to write for many places. A blog is a great way for you to have a public profile of your expertise. 4. Video, YouTube - Finally, the fourth way of how I make money while traveling and blogging is through videos. I made the decision to start making videos and I have committed to it. Ads on some of my videos is another chunk of my monthly income. Along with how to make money while traveling and blogging, it's also important to say how I can afford to travel? Most of the money my wife and I make now goes back into our traveling and eating. However, it's all about your priorities. We don't own a car and pay for gas, and instead we choose to buy plane tickets and eat street food. You have to set your own goals and priorities and live intentionally to pursue them.

Mark Wiens - A Quick Overview of Life and How I Started Traveling
 
04:10
Hey, it's Mark Wiens from Migrationology.com. If you're interested in more, I will be sending you current travel and food updates, just sign up here: https://migrationology.com/migrationology-101/ While most of the time you probably see me eating food, I've been receiving a lot of questions lately asking me who exactly I am, how I started traveling, why I love eating so much, and how I earn a living. So in this video I'm going to quickly explain how and where I grew up. I was born in Phoenix, Arizona, in the USA in 1986. My mother is from Hawaii, and she's Chinese, so I'm half Chinese. Visiting Hawaii, where food is a huge part of the culture, is where I first became so obsessed with all things food. My grandfather was a Chinese chef, so food has been a big part of my family. My parents are Christian missionaries, so when I was 5 years old, we moved to France for a year. I attended my first year of school in France. We then moved to DR Congo, which was then known as Zaire. We lived in the middle of the jungle and as a kid I would run around exploring and eating interesting and rather bizarre jungle creatures. Due to war in Zaire, we moved to Nairobi, Kenya, where I attended a Christian international school for 8 years until graduating from high school. After high school I went back to Arizona and attended Arizona State University for 4 years, graduating with a degree in global studies. After graduating, I didn't want to just get a job, so I started traveling again. I traveled in South America and then went to Asia where I finally got a job teaching English for a year. During that year though, I decided not to ever teach again but to do everything I could to make it as a freelancer on the internet and be able to have freedom to travel (and eat). It was in Thailand that I met my girlfriend, who is now my wife, so I am married! This brings us up to now. For a living I do a combination of selling my own ebooks, freelance writing, making videos, and all sorts of other random projects like SEO and social media marketing. Thank you very much for watching this life sketch video and if you have any questions for me, be sure to let me know in the comments below.

Thai basil chicken recipe (pad kra pao gai ผัดกระเพราไก่) - Thai Recipes
 
04:41
Get all the details for this Thai basil chicken recipe (pad kra pao gai ผัดกระเพราไก่) right here: http://wp.me/p4a4F7-24u Alright everyone, I've been receiving some requests to post some Thai recipes, so this is my first attempt at filming and publishing a Thai street food recipe known as pad kra pao gai (ผัดกระเพราไก่), and I'm excited. When I first moved to Thailand, most of what I did was only eat, and discover all the amazing food there way. I lived in a small studio apartment without a kitchen, so I wasn't able to do much cooking or sample the many Thai recipes I had wanted to try out. But after getting married and moving into a house, we now have a kitchen, and while normally my wife and her mother do the cooking (which is outstanding by the way), I have had a chance to make some Thai street food recipes as well. For this Thai basil chicken recipe (pad kra pao gai ผัดกระเพราไก่) here are the ingredients you'll need, but really, you should click here http://wp.me/p4a4F7-24u to see all the ingredients and directions on my website. 1 egg 2 tablespoons of oil for frying 1 chicken breast (or any other cut of boneless chicken, about 200 grams) 5 cloves of garlic 4 Thai chilies 1 tablespoon oil for frying 1 teaspoon of oyster sauce ½ teaspoon light soy sauce ½ teaspoon sugar 1 splash of dark soy sauce 1 handful of Thai holy basil leaves 1 plate of hot freshly steamed Thai jasmine rice - I also really like brown rice. Now, the ingredients listed here for the Thai basil chicken recipe (pad kra pao gai ผัดกระเพราไก่) are what I used. But that being said, Thai food is very much a taste based cuisine, meaning that you really need to taste test your cooking. Don't just assume all these measurements are correct for your taste buds - and sometimes the seasonings we use can differ a bit. So use these ingredients and cooking directions as a guide instead of as exact measurements. Hope you enjoyed this Thai basil chicken recipe. I will be publishing a few more like this video in this series.

11 Amazing Things To Do in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
 
07:33
Get more things to do in Kuala Lumpur, and travel tips: http://migrationology.com/2014/02/kuala-lumpur-travel-guide-food-lovers/ I'm Mark Wiens and thank you very much for watching this video about a few of the top things to do in Kuala Lumpur, a city that just happens to be one of my favorite cities to visit in Southeast Asia. It's the largest and probably the most important and influential city in Malaysia and truly has some amazing sites to offer. Along with modern skyrise towers like the Petronas Towers, there are still lots of traditional historic buildings as well. The awesome mixture of cultures, the mix of traditional and modern, and very importantly, the outstanding cuisine is what makes Kuala Lumpur such a great city to explore! 1. On this list of top things to do in Kuala Lumpur I first stop by the most famous landmark of the the city: the Petronas Towers. These twin giant sky scrapers are huge, and they literally reach towards the heavens and touch the clouds. On the bottom of the Petronas Towers is a pretty fancy shopping mall while the tops of the towers are filled with offices. On the 41st and 42nd floor, there is a sky bridge which connects the two towers together and which is open for visitors. Years ago, it used to be free entrance but unfortunately now they have started to charge a rather steep 80 Malaysian Ringgits per person. 2. After the visiting the Petronas towers, number two on the list is the historical district of old Kuala Lumpur. Visiting and walking around the area is one of the top things to do in Kuala Lumpur and you shouldn't miss the opportunity. From Merdeka Square to the old railroad station, you'll see some amazing architecture and buildings. Another must visit is the National Mosque, which is known as Masjid Negara. With a capacity of 15,000, this is the central and most visited mosque in the city. 3. The Menara KL Tower, along with the Petronas Towers, is one of the dominating features of Kuala Lumpur's skyline. At 421 meters in height, it's one of the world's tallest communications towers. I was lucky enough to be invited to the annual BASE jumping event which was held at the KL Tower so I had a pass to go to the top for the incredible view and to see the event (http://migrationology.com/2012/10/jordan-kilgore-base-jump-kuala-lumpur/). The KL Tower also offer look out viewpoints and a number of restaurants where you can dine with an incredible view. 4. Number 4 is Little India which is better known as Brickfields. Kuala Lumpur is home to many Indian's many from the south of the country. Brickfields is a popular place to browse, shop for all sorts of Indian products and most importantly to eat at some seriously delicious Indian restaurants. If you're looking for good Indian food in Kuala Lumpur, check out this restaurant: http://migrationology.com/2012/11/south-indian-food-kuala-lumpur-vishalatchi/ 5. Chinatown, located on Petaling Street, is one of the biggest Kuala Lumpur attractions. It's mostly known for it street shopping and restaurants. You can find all sorts of fake brand names and nearly everything imaginable. 6. Thean Hou Temple is one of the most impressive Daoist temples in Kuala Lumpur. It's free to visit and offers insights into the Hainanese community in the city and there are also great views of the city. 7. Central Market, is a top tourist shopping attraction in Kuala Lumpur. Though many of the products are rather touristy, there are some good things waiting to be found. 8. Within central Kuala Lumpur are the KL Lake Gardens and Bird Park. It makes a great tropical escape to the bustling city life. 9. The Batu Caves, located just outside the central part of the city is one of the best things to do in Kuala Lumpur. The caves and shrines are one of the most sacred Hindu sites outside of India. 10. Chow Kit Market is the central fresh wet market in the city. Everyday thousands of shoppers get their Malaysian food ingredients at this interesting market. 11. Malaysian food is the ultimate attraction to visiting Kuala Lumpur. With a great mixture of local Malay, Chinese, and Indian, there's no shortage of incredible dining that will leave you satisfied and hungry for more! For myself, eating is one of the best things to do in Kuala Lumpur! Hope you enjoyed this list and hope you have a wonderful visit! Music in this video is Feel Free by Joe Sacco.

Authentic Thai iced tea recipe (cha yen ชาเย็น) - street food style
 
04:10
You're going to love this authentic Thai iced tea recipe (cha yen ชาเย็น), it's easy to make and always refreshing. Get the full recipe here: http://wp.me/p4a4F7-2kh Thailand has some very famous drinks, including Red Bull and Singha, but there's nothing more famous throughout the world than Thai iced tea, which is known in Thai better as cha yen (ชาเย็น). The tea is served at Thai restaurants around the world, and many people, especially if they like sweet and creamy beverages, love it. Thai ice tea is often easy to recognize because of its bright orange color and creaminess. Why wait until you go to a Thai restaurant to have ice tea? Here is an authentic Thai iced tea recipe, Bangkok street food style, that you can make at home right now. There are only a few ingredients that you need, and if you have an Asian supermarket near your home, it should be quite easy to get everything you need. One thing I just want to clarify though is the orange color of Thai iced tea. The tea brand that is commonly used in Thailand is called Cha Dra Muer (ชาตรามือ) - or it's just known as Number One Brand. It's black tea that includes a bit of C yellow number 6, which is what gives it the signature color. However, though I have not tried it, if you just use regular black tea for this Thai iced tea recipe, it should still work fine, it just won't be that orange color. Anyway, along with black tea, here are the rest of the ingredients you'll need: 1 tablespoon Thai black tea 1 cup of hot boiling water 2 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk 2 teaspoons evaporated milk (plus some more to sprinkle on top) 2 teaspoons sugar 1 cup of crushed ice The first thing you need to do is steep your tea. There are many ways to do this, but on the streets of Thailand, most Thai iced tea vendors will make their tea using a tea sock, which is almost like a real sock connected to a wire ring. You add the tea leaves to the sock, pour hot water into a cup, and just let the leaves brew for a few minutes. Alternatively, you could just add your tea leave to a cup, pour in the hot water, let the leaves brew for a few minutes, and then strain out the leaves - whatever is easiest for you. Next step is to mix in sweetened condensed milk as well as evaporated milk, and stir it up until it's a nice creamy mixture. You can also add in some extra sugar, according to your own taste. Just to note, since you will be pouring your hot tea over ice, you can make it a little sweeter than you think, as it will become watered down from the ice. As an extra step, but it is very fun to try, you can put the tea in one cup, and then pour it, using some elevation to another cup. This is going to create some foam on your tea, almost like froth. This is not necessary, it's just fun (see video for details). The next step in this recipe for Thai iced tea is to take a glass, fill it up to the top with crushed ice, and then pour your milky tea mixture over the ice. Give it a quick stir, and then finish it off with another sprinkle of evaporated milk to give it a nice creamy top. Drink you Thai iced tea with a straw, and if it's a hot day, you'll surely be satisfied and refreshed. Enjoy.

Dal Bhat (दालभात) - Delicious Nepali Food Meal (Motherly Cooked)
 
02:59
Dal Bhat (दालभात) is one of the most typical Nepali food meals available in Nepal. For more information check out my website: http://migrationology.com/ No matter what area of Nepal you are in, when you're looking for delicious home cooked Nepali food, you'll find dal bhat. The great thing about dal bhat is that it's a delicious meal. Dal means soup, which is usually a lentil soup similar to the Indian version of dal, but a little soupier. Bhat on the other hand is a main staple starch, which normally indicated rice, but if rice is not available, it can mean another form of starch to go with the sides. A meal of Nepali dal bhat (दालभात) all begins on a big metal plate which is piled high with rice. The dal soup is normally place in a small metal bowl and served on the side. While this is the barebones Nepali food combination, usually more sides are added to make the meal more complete. Dal bhat tarkari (दाल भात तरकारी) for instance, is the rice and dal combination along with a side of seasonal vegetables - often some kind of green vegetable fried up or curried cauliflower. Also, if you like to eat meat, there's often the option of ordering chicken, buffalo, or beef curry to accompany your meal. I personally loved chicken and buffalo curry and also a dish they call chicken chilly. For this particular Nepali food meal I was just wandering around Kathmandu, actually getting my Thai visa, when I became extremely hungry. Nepali local restaurants are often hidden from the road by curtains which you have to pull back in order to see what's going on. This was why it was sometimes hard to find food in Nepal, because restaurants are often hidden by drapes. But nevertheless, peek your head into a curtain and there's usually something delicious. This small neighborhood restaurant was owned by a motherly lady who had a selection of delicious dishes all prepared when I arrived. I just ordered the dal bhat (दालभात) and when she asked me if I wanted chicken, I couldn't resist. A plate of rice, peas and potatoes curry, chicken curry, and dal was what came with my meal. After downing my first helping, she then brought more more and more food, a bowl of chickpeas that were slightly cold and still quite firm, and a soft boiled egg, which I was extremely excited about. The egg was soft boiled so the yolk and even some of the white were still soft and perfect to go over my plate of rice. Along with some of the achar chili sauce, a sort of Nepali food salsa, the egg was incredible! Dal bhat makes a wonderful and fulfilling meal when you're in Nepal. It's served fresh, it's for the most part nutritious, and it really satisfies when you're hungry!

How To Save Money to Travel the World
 
02:57
Sign up for my newsletter http://migrationology.com/the-dirty-and-the-delicious/ to get lots more exclusive travel tips (and food). There are many ways to save money in this world, but some of the easiest things you can do are actually the most obvious and quite simple - that is if you put your mind to it, make a commitment, and strive to fulfill your goals. After I graduated from University in the United States, I decided I wanted to leave and travel the world while seeing some amazing sites and destinations. Luckily, I had been working throughout university, paying my way as I went, and also was able to save quite a lot of money along the way. When I began traveling I didn't have a lot of money, but I did have enough to get started. 4 years later, I'm still traveling and still able to live frugally, pursue my dreams, and save money in the process. But how did I save money to travel the world? Well among many things, one of the things I did was to reduce my spending on the little things. I worked for a company for years throughout university driving a truck around and collected waste and garbage from the upper class. Many guys I worked with would stop off a gas station and run into the convenience store to buy a soda, a snack, and maybe some candy to top things off. $10 later, they come out of the store, jump back in the truck. 1 hour later, that $10 would be complete consumed, with very little show (other than maybe a sore stomach) for the money. That was 1 hour of income, and added up day after day in a similar manner, that amount of small money start to really add up. That's when I got to thinking, one of the absolute best ways of how to save money is to knock out the unnecessary things. Simple right? Yes it sounds simple. And it really is. That is if you make the commitment and do everything you can to save money in order to travel. If you don't make the commitment, you'll find yourself grabbing a pack of gum, reaching for a soda, or getting an unnecessary snack or item. Now that being said, I know we all have weaknesses and passions. My personal passion is food, I simply love to eat - but I love to eat full meals and not so much snacks. So knowing myself, I avoid most snacks (with occasional exceptions of course), and use my money for full meals, which I appreciate more. Learn about yourself and what small things you can cut out of your life to save more money and be able to do the things you want to be doing - like traveling! Do you have any other tips about how to save money to travel? Would love to hear from you in the comments section below. Thank you for watching!

Borough Market in London - What You Should Eat | London Street Food Tour!
 
06:06
Borough Market is one of the most famous and renowned fresh markets in London. Get all information here: http://migrationology.com/2014/05/borough-market-london/ There are many famous things to do in London, but if you're a food lover like I am, one of the best choices you can make it to take a trip to the historical Borough Market. The market is one of the most well-known in all of London. The history goes way back, and it was formerly a place where people came and gathered to trade and sell their fresh produce. For many years it was very informal and without structure. But the official Borough Market was established in 1885, the place that we can visit today. We were only in London for a couple of days, attending the Chowzter.com food awards (http://chowzter.com/), and one thing I knew we needed to do, was visit Borough Market with an empty stomach. It was Friday morning at about 10 AM when we decided to go - and I think it was just about a perfect time - because many of the vendors were just opening up, and the market wasn't as packed as it could be. The best things to do as soon as you arrive to Borough Market is to take a leisurely stroll around and see what is available for you to eat - there are too many things to eat in one visit, so it's important that you choose wisely, and decide what you want to eat. Some of the most famous things include the salt beef sandwich, the grilled cheese sandwich, the duck confit sandwich, chorizo, and many other delicious things. But along with cooked food, there's also a range of cured meats, and wonderful cheeses. I also really enjoyed the fresh produce, which included a nice variety of mushrooms and beautiful heirloom tomatoes. But anyway let's get back to the food, and I'm talking about the food ready to be eaten. As soon as I arrived I saw a stack of cheese and olive bread-sticks which were piled high like a pyramid. That was my first treat. The long bread-stick was crusty and embedded with salty cheese and delicious olives. While walking around, in the back part Borough Market, we decided to try a Portuguese egg tart. It was good but I thought it could've been better if it was a little warmer. Next up we tried a sausage on a stick from a place called Boston Sausage. I added a bunch of English mustard to it, and I think that's what made it so good. If you want to drink coffee, when you visit London's Borough Market you cannot miss the famous Monmouth coffee shop. It can be quite busy and hard to find a seat, so we decided just to get takeaway coffee, as I really needed something to wake me up and keep me energized to eat more. My little shot of macchiato was fantastic. Back to the food, we went to a place called Brindisa and ordered up one of their famous chorizo sandwiches. The chorizo was very tasty, and had a nice spicy flavor to it, but I thought the bread was way too big for the amount of meat. If I ordered it again, I would for sure get the double chorizo. Finally for my last sandwich at Borough Market, I went with the famous duck confit sandwich. You'll see the incredible pan of duck confit when you visit the market, and if you're like me, it should entice you to eat it immediately. When you order, the vendor fills up a bunch of duck into a ciabatta roll. The duck was incredibly tender, juicy, and oily, and it was amazingly tasty. That just about wrapped up everything I ate at Borough Market in London. There were still many more things I wanted to try, but like I said, it would be a near impossible feat to eat everything in one visit to the market. If you want to eat and you're in London, this is one of the best places to visit. Visit Borough Market information: Open for lunch on Monday -- Tuesday from 11 am -- 5 pm Full market is open on Wednesday -- Thursday from 11 am -- 5 pm, Friday from 10 am -- 6 pm, and Saturday from 8 am -- 5 pm (closed on Sunday) Prices: It would not be hard to spend 20 GBP per person eating here Website: http://boroughmarket.org.uk/ How to get to there: I think the easiest way is to take the London underground tube to London Bridge Station and then just follow the exit signs that will lead directly to Borough Market.

They have two shops, the one of the corner serves only Tsukemen, a style of Japanese ramen where the noodles are dry and you dip them in the sauce. For the traditional bowl of ramen, you walk around the corner to the side and that’s the shop you’re looking for. Like most ramen restaurants in Tokyo, you enter to a vending machine and choose your bowl of ramen, pay and get a ticket. There are two different spice levels to choose from, chili 1-5 and Sichuan pepper 1-5, 5 being the strongest which is called Devil Level! I decided to go Devil Level all the way, both chili and Sichuan pepper. Price - 1500 JPY ($13.60) for my bowl. From the top bowl, you pay an extra 200 Yen due to adding so much more spices. First of all, the Japanese food miso ramen was outstanding, the flavor of the broth was incredibly delicious. On my first bite, what hit me hard was the Sichuan pepper, that made my mouth start tingling and made it hard for me to control my mouth or even talk! The Devil Level chili was not too bad for me, but it was the huge amount of Sichuan chili that almost did me in. You don’t have to order Devil Level, you can order whatever level you like, but the ramen at Tokyo’s Karashibi Miso Ramen Kikanbo is sure to blow you away with insane flavor!

Chatamari - Nepali Street Food Pizza in Kathmandu, Nepal!
 
02:28
Chatamari is a Nepali street food pizza that's popular in Kathmandu! ►Subscribe now for more videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe Kathmandu is a wonderful city with so much history and a number of tasty Nepalese street food (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf493MCi5rA) snacks to sample. One of the popular snacks is known as chatamari (also known as chataamari). It's basically a cross between a crepe or pancake and a pizza, I prefer to compare it to the latter as it has so many different toppings. The base of chatamari चतांमरि is created from a batter made from rice flour. The vendor first poured the batter onto a hot skillet and then flattened it out with the bottom of the scooper. She then immediate tossed on a mixture of egg beaten up with minced buffalo and a variety of spices. After spreading it all out evenly on top of the base, she then plopped another egg right into the middle of the Nepalese street food pizza. A few slivers of tomato and some cilantro and salt were then added to the top. The chatamari was then covered with a clay top and cooked for a few moments before being ready. Once my piping hot pancake was fully cooked, the friendly vendor took it off the griddle, sliced it up into smaller bite sizes pieces and then place the entire pizza into a leaf bowl to eat. I was delighted and hungry to sample my first buffalo egg Nepalese pizza! The Nepalese Chatamari चतांमरि was just about as delicious as you can imagine. The base of the pancake was soft and pillowy and the toppings were spicy and flavorful. Buffalo is a very common meat to eat in Nepal, and it's very fragrant with a stronger or more gamey flavor than beef. Chatamari is originally a Newari food (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKLbSErFfrU&feature=c4-overview&list=UUyEd6QBSgat5kkC6svyjudA), traditionally served in the Kathmandu valley area during feasts and gatherings. Nowadays the Nepalese pancake is served all over the streets of Kathmandu. It makes a great protein filled snack if you're looking for something salty when walking around!

Vietnamese Food - The BEST Breakfast I Ate in Saigon (Bánh Mì Hòa Mã)
 
05:55
One of the best times to eat Vietnamese street food is for breakfast. Read the full article here: http://migrationology.com/2015/01/vietnamese-breakfast-saigon/ Because I love food so much, one of my favorite things to do when I travel is wake up early and go to the morning markets and proceed to explore the local cuisine for breakfast. In many countries I’ve been to, breakfast is one of the best meals because the food is fresh, and people are on their way to school and work and need something quick and delicious to grab, or sit down, and eat. In Vietnam, though you’ll find street food and restaurants open around the clock, I still think the the best food and some of the best selection of food was available in the morning. One of the recommendations I got from many of you was to try a breakfast restaurant called Bánh Mì Hòa Mã, extremely famous throughout Saigon for serving bánh mì ốp la, or the Vietnamese personal baguettes served with a personal pan of fried sunny side up eggs. The combination, though simple and pretty easy to make, can be exceptionally delicious. So one day when I was in Saigon, I walked over to Bánh Mì Hòa Mã. The restaurant is actually housed in an indoor facility, and all the cooking is done indoors, but all the seating is along the side of the alley street, where they set up small plastic tables and chairs. I arrived at the Vietnamese breakfast street food stall right as they were opening, just after 7 am, and luckily I got a good table, and Ying and I were one of the first people to eat there for the morning - but soon after we sat down, many other hungry breakfast eater came to sit down. I ordered just the standard plate of bánh mì ốp la, which didn’t take long to come out of the kitchen, sizzling hot. The eggs were scorched on the edges on the bottom of the little personal pan, and the tops of the eggs were still runny, rich and creamy. Along with my pan of op la, fried sunny side up eggs, I got a personal baguette, called banh mi, a side dish of pickled cucumbers and carrots, and an extra side dish of pate, just for fun. The eggs were also topped with a few scoops of caramelized, extremely fragrant onions and chilies, and along with a selection of Vietnamese sausage, which I think was pre-fried in a different pan and then added to the top of the eggs, artfully thrown on. The bits of meat and the onions provided some extremely flavor to the eggs and the crusty banh mi, and I think that’s the flavor that really elevated this banh mi op la to extreme delicious, best breakfast I ate in Vietnam status. For some bites I would scoop on a bit of pate to my pieces of super crusty baguette, then sop up the beautiful egg yolk, and bits of meat. It was truly a breakfast to remember, one of the finest breakfasts I’ve eaten anywhere in the world. On the table, there was also some Chinese tea, which went well with the rich breakfast. They also had coffee, but since I had just had a cup before coming to eat, I didn’t have one. Bánh Mì Hòa Mã Address: 53 Cao Thắng, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (on Hem 51 Cao Thang) Our total bill came to 91,000 VND for both of us, which was about $4.20 US More details coming soon Music in this video from audionetwork.com Video eaten and made by Mark Wiens and Ying Wiens: http://migrationology.com/blog & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/blog/ Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=migrationology Support my videos: http://www.patreon.com/markwiens ► Get my food and travel updates: http://migrationology.com/food-news (FREE!)

Chef Twins in Bangkok - MIDNIGHT CRISPY PORK LEG + German Food at Michelin Star Restaurant Sühring!
 
20:54
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ ►Restaurant Sühring: http://restaurantsuhring.com For a while now I had wanted to eat at Restaurant Sühring (http://restaurantsuhring.com/), a modern German food restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand. Along with serving world class German food in Thailand, one of the unique aspects of Restaurant Sühring is that the chefs are twins! Restaurant Sühring is one of the most well known high end dining restaurants in Bangkok, having received a Michelin Star and at the top of the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. I just want to make this clear - I initially wanted to eat at Sühring and asked permission to film a video. Graciously, they did not allow me to pay, though I had all intention to do so. This video is not sponsored, but I didn’t pay for the food. Thank you to Khun Pup for organizing. Ok, let’s get into this amazing meal we had, including a surprise German style fried pork leg, which happened to be at midnight (we dined for like 4 hours, and what an incredible meal it was). Here are all the dishes we ate at Sühring: Storhappen Berliner Pfannkuchen Huehnchen Salat - chicken salad Lachs & Gurke - cured salmon Currywurst Entenleber & Buchteln - foie gras mousse Frankfurter grüne soße, geräucherter aal - eel Brotzeit - bread Leipziger Allerlei - herbs, crayfish Seabream Spätzle Hungarian duck German pork knuckle Rote grutze & tonka Pfirsich & quark - peach dessert Candy box Eierlikör – egg liqueur Tasting menu - 4,400 THB ($135.65) Wine pairing - 3,600 THB ($110.98) Again, I was really looking forward to finally having the chance to eat at Restaurant Sühring as a lot of my food friends in Bangkok told me how good it was. Something I really loved is how both the twins are so passionate about cooking and how each dish had a story behind it - many of which had a family story behind it. Both Ying and I really enjoyed out meal. Huge thank you to the Mathias and Thomas Sühring for the meal and hospitality!

One Incredible Day in Boracay
 
16:46
Apart from my camera falling apart after the ATV ride, this was an one incredible day in Boracay! Anton’s YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/antondiaz 00:29 Breakfast - For breakfast we started off at Discovery Shores Hotel, and we ate the breakfast buffet. The breakfast was alright, but a little small, and a little crowded, but nevertheless a good way to start the day. I especially enjoyed the smoked bangus. 1:45 Walk on White Sand Beach - After breakfast we started off walking down White Sand Beach, one of the most famous main attractions of Boracay - a 3 km stretch of white sand and beautiful beach. What I like most is that you can just walk down the beach and enjoy the 2:16 Willy’s Rock - One of the most famous landmarks in Boracay is Willy’s Rock, a chunk of coral that sits near the coastline. When it’s high tide the rock is submerged in water, but when it’s low tide the rock sits in the sand. At this point I was hot and ready to take a swim as well. 2:54 Taho Beach Food - As we were swimming, Anton flagged down a vendor selling taho, soft silken tofu. It made a good beach street food. 4:33 Calamansi muffin at Real Coffee Shop - As we were walking along Station 2 beach in Boracay, we stopped off at a place called Real Coffee, for a quick cup of coffee and a calamansi muffin. The muffin tasted a lot like lemon cake, and the coffee, was too weak for me, but alright. Real coffee is known as one of the original spots in Boracay, especially famous for their calamansi muffins. 7:13 Lunch at Sands Restaurant, Discovery Shores Boracay - For lunch we returned to Discovery Shores and had an amazing lunch at their Sands restaurant. They prepared all Filipino food, all of which was extremely good. I really enjoyed the kilawin, Filipino style ceviche, the lamb shank caldereta, and the Bacolod kansi, a beef shank soup. Everything was delicious, one of the better and best quality Filipino food meals I’ve ever had. 9:22 ATV Ride to the lookout viewpoint of Boracay / Paraw sailing ride - In the afternoon, continuing on this one day in Boracay, we took an ATV tour to one of the highest points on Boracay to see the view. It was a bit expensive. Unfortunately, this is where my camera broke. 12:33 Jonah’s Milkshakes - For afternoon snack, we stopped by Jonah’s Milkshakes and had an avocado mango milkshake, which was delicious, along with a chori burger. 14: 20 Boodle Fight for Dinner - For dinner, we returned back to the hotel where I was introduced to a Filipino feast called a boodle fight. All the food was placed in the middle of the table, and we all shared our dinner together as a family - it was amazing, both the food and the company. Disclosure: We were invited to stay at Discovery Shores Boracay, so we didn’t pay for our stay. But everything in this video, and all thoughts are my own. Huge thank you to Discovery Shores Boracay - we had an amazing stay. -------------------------------------------- This food travel video was produced by Mark Wiens and Ying Wiens.

Amazing Food at a Malaysian Wedding and a Surprise Durian!
 
08:55
Read the full blog post about attending this Malaysian wedding, the food, and the surprise durian ► http://migrationology.com/2015/06/malaysian-wedding-food-langkawi/ One of the most memorable experiences I had when we were in Langkawi, Malaysia, was attending a local Malaysian wedding. It happened to be wedding season in Langakawi when we were there, and our guide Wan Kash, and driver Fami, said we could just stop by at a wedding on the side of the road, just to see it and maybe eat. So while we were driving around, we found a wedding one afternoon, and stopped in. The family was extremely welcoming and invited us into their home and generously gave us a feast to eat. Buffalo curry is one of the most well known foods to eat at a Malaysian wedding, and as soon as we arrived to the wedding the first thing I saw was the massive pan of buffalo curry slowly simmering away and being stirred not by a spoon, but by a paddle. The buffalo curry cook gave me a piece of the buffalo and it was incredibly soft and tender, and had an almost irony flavor and livery texture it was so soft. They invited us to sit down with all the cooks and the family and they soon dished us our a full wedding meal including all the dishes they were serving. There was the buffalo curry, red chicken curry, fried fish, a soup made with taro stems, and finally a yellow shredded mango salad. I scooped some of all the dishes onto my plate and got ready to start chowing down. All the food was incredible. One of my favorite dishes at this Malaysian wedding feast was the yellow mango salad which included shredded yellow mango, peanuts, sliced Chinese long beans and shallots, and what tasted like some toasted shredded coconut. The salad had a contrast of sweet and salty, and it tasted excellent with the rice and mixture of different curries. As we were eating, one of the ladies handed us a plate of Langkawi style laksa, thick rice udon noodles topped with a pureed fish curry, mixed with slices of cucumber and onions. The curry was similar to Penang laksa, but a bit different and it had a wonderful sour flavor to it. Our guide Wan Kash, as we were eating and making this video, showed some of the aunties our videos and youtube and they had seen that we loved durian so much. So literally, while we were still eating, someone went into the backyard of the house and picked a fresh durian, and handed me half. I knew there as durian somewhere near because of the undeniable aroma that immediately filled the outside air. The durian was perfectly ripe, sweet and butter with a slight bitter tinge. After eating, we then got to see a little bit of the Malaysian wedding ceremony, which was incredible to see. It was an amazing experience, and I’m truly thankful for the opportunity to attend, experience, and enjoy the amazing food at this wedding in Langkawi. Thank you for the family!

Nepali Street Food - DEEP FRIED Snacks in Kathmandu, Nepal!
 
03:39
Nepali street food snacks in Kathmandu, Nepal! ►Subscribe to my channel for more videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe After traveling through India, we took a flight from Delhi to Kathmandu. I was excited to explore a bit of Nepal, and we first began our explorations in the largest city of Kathmandu. Kathmandu is a beautiful city and there are quite a few things to do. But as a foodie traveler, I was of course most interested in sampling Nepali food and also Nepali street food, which I knew very little about before visiting Nepal. In Kathmandu, there's not a lot of street food when you compare the city to a place like Bangkok. There are some stalls, but many of the street food is housed in small tiny little restaurants where you pull back a curtain and sit on small tables and benches to enjoy home cooked noodles and momo dumplings. Around the Boudha stupa (also known as Boudhanath stupa) in Kathmandu, there are some good Nepali street food carts, many of them serving a mixture of both Tibetan and Nepali street food snacks. When I saw this cart that was cooking something extremely delicious smelling along with a pair of very friendly vendors, I knew I'd have to give it a sample. The vendors were very happy to be featured and I quickly ordered two items from their menu. All their street food were stacked within the glass encased cart and as soon as someone would order something, they would quickly dunk it into the hot oil until hot through and through. The vendors would then put them on top of a piece of newspaper, and slice them into pieces. Depending on your personal preference, the vendor would then scoop on a spoon of hot sauce to add extra flavor and complete the Nepali street food snack. I started by street food sampling with a buffalo shapale, which is a Tibetan Nepali meat pie. It was filled with minced buffalo and possibly some onions. The flavor was great from the meat and it was improved by the hot and salty chili sauce. Next up was something known as an aloo chop, which is basically a deep fried potato cutlet. It was incredibly good, a ball of spicy mashed potatoes that were crispy on the outside and flavored so wonderfully. For my final Nepali street food snack this round, I couldn't resist a small piece of Nepal style fried chicken. The meat on the little drumstick was pushed all the way to the end so it provided a chicken handle with which is hold while enjoying the chicken. The chicken was pretty delicious, a proper street food snack. Thanks for watching this Nepali street food video and hope you can enjoy these snacks when you visit Kathmandu!

Street Meat in Chiang Mai (& Don't Do What I Did)
 
05:17
Chiang Mai is a haven for anyone who loves to eat grilled meat. When I was in Chiang Mai, one evening I went over to the market to find some skewers of grilled meat. After walking around for a few minutes, I found a worthy meat stall, and decided to purchase a few skewers for snack. Most of the skewers were quite good and tasty, but that one skewer of grilled chicken intestines, which is usually one of my favorites, went all BAD! Thank you for watching!

Cheapest Seoul Hotel - A Tour of My Extremely Mini Room!
 
02:36
Go to http://migrationology.com/ for more travel and street food. One things that really surprised me in Seoul were the high costs of living and doing just about anything. I guess if you were to come from Europe or North America, the prices wouldn't be too bad, but coming from Southeast Asia where prices are quite low, Seoul was very expensive. Food and accommodation were the two main things that drove up the prices, so when I visited Seoul I really wanted to look for a place to stay that was on the cheaper side of things. That's when I found Seoul hotel mini rooms where you can get a private room for yourself for about $15 per night. Even a dorm bed at a Seoul hostel can cost $15 - $25 per night, but you could be crammed into a room with 10 other guests. The mini room on the other hand is about the same price as a dorm bed, yet you get your own private room. Another bonus of staying in the mini room was that there was free rice and kimchi all day and night so I was able to save some money on food as well! Have you ever stayed in an officetel mini room in Seoul?

11 Things To Do in Yangon, Myanmar (Are You Ready!?)
 
10:59
Get more details about these things to do in Yangon here: http://wp.me/psd9b-54a 1. Shwedagon Pagoda (ရွှေတိဂုံစေတီတော်) - Probably the most important religious monument and most sacred site in Yangon and throughout Myanmar is the Shwedagon Pagoda (ရွှေတိဂုံစေတီတော်). The golden stupa of the pagoda is covered in gold, and it’s so bright that I you have squint when you look at it. At the top of the pagoda, in the small umbrella looking top, are thousands of gems and diamonds - though it’s pretty challenging to see all the way up there. The Shwedagon Pagoda is a place you must visit when you’re in Yangon. 2. Local Market - One of my favorite things to do in any city I visit about the world is to visit a local fresh market - that’s where life takes place and where the action goes down. There are no shortage of fresh local markets in Yangon, and one of the best in downtown is on 26th street, across the main road from the Shri Kali Temple. The market occupies a block of downtown, and there’s an indoor section, but I really like the street side part of the market. 3. Bogyoke Aung San Market - One of the centrally located markets in downtown Yangon, located at the northern side of town, is Bogyoke Aung San Market, also known by its former name of Scott Market. If you’re looking for souvenirs, gems and jewelry, and fabric, this is a great place for you to visit when you’re in Yangon. 4. Sule Pagoda (ဆူးေလဘုရား) - Another one of the most important religious, political, and overall just city landmarks in Yangon is the Sule Pagoda - basically all roads eventually lead to the Sule Pagoda and it’s a huge transportation hub. You can pay to enter the pagoda for $3, but in my opinion there’s not that much to see inside, but it’s rather the things around the are that are more impressive. 5. Chinatown, Yangon - One of my favorite things to do in Yangon is eat, and if you love food and markets, Chinatown is a place you can’t miss. In the evening, the city of Yangon in the Chinatown area comes alive sprawling with food and people. 19th street in Yangon is a very famous as the barbecue street in the city, and there are a few restaurants where you can get a table, choose some kebabs and have them barbecue them up for you. If you love eating and drinking, dinner at 19th street is one of the fun things to do in Yangon. 6. Kandawgyi Park - There are two parts to Kandawgyi Park, the boardwalk, and the restaurants area - each has an entrance fee. It makes a great relief from the city and place to relax in the natural beauty. 7. Chaukhtatgyi Paya (Chak Htat Gyi Buddha) - This giant reclining Buddha is housed in a huge shed, and it’s among the main Buddhist religious sites in Yangon. Originally in the same location, there was a seating Buddha, but when it fell over, it was replaced by a reclining. 8. National Museum of Myanmar - If you’d like to know more about the history and culture of Myanmar (Burma), one of the attractions in Yangon that you should check out is the National Museum. It was a little outdated, but the exhibitions were educational and interesting. 9. Yangon Circular Railroad - Not really one of the traditional things to do in Yangon, Myanmar, but taking the local circular train route is a great opportunity to see some of the outskirts of the city. 10. Walk Around Yangon - Probably the best way to experience the city is to just get out on your feet and explore Yangon by food - you never know what’s going to happen or what you’re going to see or come across, but it will be full of action. 11. Myanmar Food and Street Food - There’s nothing better than traveling to eat and experiences a country through its food. Yangon is filled with both street food stalls and restaurant where you can get a sample of the local cuisine. Another part of the Myanmar culture I love is the constant tea drinking - nearly everywhere you look, you’ll find a place to sit on the side of the road and drink a cup of hot tea and socialize. Yangon is a great city, and what I love so much about it is that it’s always full of action, people are extremely friendly, there are many different types of food and street food to try, and it’s just such a vibrant, always entertaining city. Hope you can visit Yangon!

Best Indian Street Food Rolls at Kusum Rolls in Kolkata, India
 
03:35
Read my full blog post about eating kati rolls here: https://migrationology.com/indian-kati-roll-kusum-rolls/ The kati roll is one of the most incredibly tasting fast food snacks in all of India. It all begins with a paratha flatbread that's cooked in a pool of grease so it become crunchy are oily. After the paratha is done cooking, it's filled with a choice of ingredients, which normally means spicy chicken, mutton, or egg, condimented with onions and chillies and wrapped up into an Indian kati roll. Now though kati rolls are served all over India, they were originally invented in Kolkata. Nizam's a famous restaurants in the heart of Kolkata's new market, claims to be the first restaurant to create and serve the fast food delight, but now there are numerous favorite local place to get rolls. In this video, I head to Kusum Rolls and Kebabs, a street side stall that's located just off Park Street. From a local fried, I had heard that they served the city's best kati roll and I was desperate to see for myself. With no seating, you just order your food at Kusum and stand either in the parking lot or along the side of the road. The menu, though appearing to be extensive, is really just the same combination of 3 - 4 ingredients in many different wants. For instance you can order just a single egg kati roll, or you can order an egg chicken roll, or a double egg chicken roll, or even a double egg double chicken roll. Not wanting to go too crazy initially, I settled for the chicken egg roll. My paratha was cooked in oil before an egg was fried on top of it in an artful creation. It was then placed on the chopping board where a man piled in greasy pieces of insanely flavorful chicken mixed with onions and peppers. Under my request they then squeezed on a generous amount of mustard sauce - a sauce Kusum rolls is famous for! Wrapped in a paper that turns transparent from the grease, I was ready to have my first bite of a kati roll. It was even better than I had expected, a Mexican burrito like device that boasted incredible Indian spices. A kati roll is indeed not the healthiest thing to eat in the world, but every now and then it's well worth the calories and damage to the body. When you're in Kolkata, India, don't miss the kati rolls for Kusum Rolls! Kusum Rolls and Kababs Address: 21, Park Street, Kolkata , 700016 Price: Mine was 40 INR ($0.75) Here's my article: http://migrationology.com/2013/02/indian-kati-roll-kusum-rolls/ Thank you for watching!

The Lunch Lady of Saigon - Famous Street Food in Vietnam!
 
08:07
The Lunch Lady is one of the most famous street food restaurants in Saigon, Vietnam. Get all the details here: http://wp.me/psd9b-5ev Nguyen Thi Thanh, better known as the Lunch Lady, owns and operates a street food stall in Saigon that serves soup noodles. The restaurant was made famous by Anthony Bourdain, who ate there on his No Reservations show on the Travel Channel, and deeply loved both the noodles and the experience of eating there. So during my trip to Saigon, along with eating all sorts of incredibly delicious Vietnamese street food, I made it a point to eat at the legendary Lunch Lady. One of the cool things about the Lunch Lady in Saigon is that she serves a different noodle soup dish everyday of the week. After reading about all the days and her rotating menu, I decided to go on Monday, because I wanted to try her version of bun Thai, a Vietnamese and Thai fusion noodle dish. As we arrived for lunch, the restaurant was already buzzing with customers, both tourists and many locals as well. I could immediately sense the kindness and the passion of the food I was about to eat. I ordered a large bowl of noodles, which didn’t take long to arrive, and I was impressed with the beautiful decoration of ingredients and the colors of everything together. In order to make the bun Thai, the Lunch Lady first added a handful of bun, or rice noodles to a bowl, topped it with a few rings of squid and some beef, then ladled on a spoon of the slow and continual simmering broth. Then in went a handful of sliced vegetables and herbs, and finally a couple of shrimp on top. The bowl of bun Thai smelled incredible, slightly sweet and sour, with a lovely acidic, almost citrus aroma to it. Before adding any condiments, I first decided to try the soup. It tasted almost the same as it looked, sour and sweet, and with a lovely balance of flavor. I’m not sure what meat the soup was based from, but I think it was beef. Being a lover of chili, I decided to dress my bowl of noodles with some fresh dry roasted chili oil, along with a squeeze of lime juice. The chili added some much needed heat, while the lime juice gave it a bit more sourness. The noodles were slightly chewy and about the size of spaghetti, and the mixture of ingredients was superb. One of the things I really like about how the Lunch Lady assembled her bowls of noodles was that she cooked the items separately, so nothing got overcooked. Along with serving bowls of noodles, there’s a stall next to the Lunch Lady that serves goi cuon, or Vietnamese fresh summer rolls. As a lover of the fresh summer rolls, I couldn’t resist, so we ordered a plate, that came with 3 rolls. They were very fresh tasting, and I thought they were some of the best I had during my trip to Saigon. The rolls were filled with lettuce and basil, a couple of shrimp, and I really enjoyed the hoisin sauce topped with peanuts and fresh chilies. The Lunch Lady was a great Vietnamese street food experience in Saigon. I’ve only eaten there once, and I ate the bun Thai, so I for sure can’t say how the food is everyday, but the day I went it was pretty decent. On top of the good food, just as Anthony Bourdain mentioned, the Lunch Lady is a fantastic atmosphere - it’s in the shade, it’s a nice location off the main road, and there was a beautiful breeze as I slurped down my bowl of noodles. Overall, I was very happy, and even though the Lunch Lady is very famous, it’s worth a visit when you are in Saigon. And on top of that, Nguyen Thi Thanh is also very nice. Address: 23 Hoang Sa St., District 1 | Phuong Da Kao, District 1 (Quan 1), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Open hours: It’s best to eat here sometime around lunch. Prices: 40,000 VND ($1.83) for a nice sized bowl of noodles, pretty decent portion size How to get to the Lunch Lady: The restaurant is located not far from the Saigon zoo, tucked away into the neighborhood. You can either take a taxi directly there, or take public transportation to the zoo, and walk for just 5 - 10 minutes to get there. Thank you all for watching this video, hope you enjoyed it.

Thai Beef Salad Recipe - Nam Tok Neua (วิธีทำ น้ำตกเนื้อ)!
 
08:45
Full details about this authentic Thai beef salad recipe, click here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2015/04/nam-tok-recipe/ - you're going to love this Thai recipe! Nam tok neua (น้ำตกเนื้อ), which directly translates to Thai waterfall beef or beef waterfall, is actually more of a grilled beef or steak salad. The dish can be made with either beef or pork, and it’s common to find either version in Thailand, but I wanted to make this recipe with beef this time. If you have a nice chunk of beef or some steak and you want make a delicious Thai dish, nam tok neua (น้ำตกเนื้อ) is a wonderful choice. The dish is a northeastern Thai dish, found throughout Thailand now, but traditionally eaten in Isaan. Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe: First, for the beef marinade, here’s what you’ll need: 500 grams of beef (of you could also use pork, I used a tenderloin type of cut, but any cut of beef will work) 1 tbsp ground black pepper (you can either grind it yourself or use pre-ground black pepper) 1.5 tbsp light soy sauce Even though I grilled 500 grams of beef, for this Thai beef salad I just made a single plate, so these ingredients go with just ½ of the beef - 250 grams, so if you make all the beef from above, you’ll have to double these ingredients: 250 grams of beef - grilled and sliced 1 tbsp khao khua (here’s the recipe: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2015/04/toasted-rice-powder-recipe/) 2 tbsp fish sauce tiny bit of sugar (this is optional) 1 - 2 tbsp chili flakes (depending on how spicy you want it) 1.5 tbsp lime juice - I used the juice from 2 limes 5 small shallots - sliced 1 green onion - diced handful mint leaves to garnish The first step is the marinate the beef. All you have to do is add the soy sauce and the black pepper to a mixing bowl along with the beef, and mix it thoroughly until the beef is fully cooked. I marinated the beef for about 1 hour, but really, if you don’t have the time to marinate it for longer, just go ahead and grill it immediately. The marinate is not all that flavorful, the main dressing of the salad is what gives the nam tok beef salad most of its delicious taste. Then grill the beef. The reason nam tok neua (น้ำตกเนื้อ) is called Thai waterfall beef salad is because, as the legend says, the beef makes a hissing sound (from the sizzling on the grill), when the meat is done and ready to be taken off the grill. I’m not sure if this is really how this Thai food got its name, but it sounds like a pretty good story to me, and I think it’s pretty good. You want to grill your meat until it’s about medium cooked, and once finished, set it aside to rest. Then, proceed to slice the beef steak into bite sized strips, and put it back into a mixing bowl. Mix in all the remaining ingredients, and stir gently, but make sure all the ingredients are coating the slices of beef. You should then taste test to make sure your beef salad is nice and tasty - it should be salty, sour, and spicy. Once you have the correct balance of ingredients, put the nam tok neua (น้ำตกเนื้อ) onto a plate, and garnish with a few more mint leaves on top. This Thai beef salad recipe is pretty easy to make, and it tastes extremely good. Hope you can try this recipe, and let me know how it goes!

But before we went to the event to eat a 12 course wagyu Japanese beef meal, we first stopped off at chi SPACCA, an Italian restaurant to have their cheesy focaccia. It was cooked right in front of us, and it was so fresh and incredibly good. The golden cooked dough and the cheese in the center made it fantastic. Spago - We continued on to Spago to attend the Wagyu Mafia event. I had an opportunity to go back into the kitchen to see the chefs preparing the meal, and get a few samples directly from the chefs. The mini wagyu beef sliders were incredible, but the ice cream cone raw wagyu tartare was the winner.

Japanese Street Food Seafood Treat (& My First Taste of "Shirako")
 
04:04
This fresh Japanese street food seafood treat, was amazing. Get the details of my experience here: http://migrationology.com/2014/04/japanese-seafood-street-food/ Probably the most well-known thing to do in Tokyo is visit the Tsukiji Fish Market. Before I went to the wholesale area of the market, I ate a sashimi rice bowl at one of the famous restaurants. My belly was very satisfied and I then walked around the wholesale fish market for a couple of hours before heading to the outer edge of the market - which by the way has a lot of awesome restaurants and Japanese street food things to eat around there too. I thoroughly enjoyed walking around outside market, but then we spotted something that looked truly remarkable, and we had to make an impulse purchase. It wasn't cheap at all, but it sure was amazing. I could hear the blowtorches from a ways away, and that's what first caught my attention. The vendor first took a giant scallop, cut it up with a pair of scissors, and then added a medley of different seafoods to the shell. There was an oyster, sea urchin, and the scallop of course, and then there was a white looking thing that I had never seen before. I really had no clue what it was, but I was about to find out. So I waited in line for a few minutes, and then paid, and got my beautiful fresh seafood Japanese street food treat. Though it was cooked for just a few seconds with that blowtorch, it was completely hot, and just smelled of complete freshness. Being a seafood lover, I couldn't wait to start digging in. There wasn't any seating, but there were a few styrofoam boxes where you could actually set your shell down and start diggin in. I started with the scallop first, which was amazing, incredibly soft and sweet and fleshy. The oyster was equally marvelous, meaty and big and juicy. The uni sea urchin was also quite good, tasted a little bit like a ripe cheese, with a slight burn on the top to give it some nice flavor. Since I didn't know what the white stuff was on my show, I decided to try that as the last thing. It was definitely a little bit on the slimy side, and it actually kind of tasted like cream cheese but even creamier. It actually didn't have a lot of flavor other than cream cheese. I proceeded to finish my entire Japanese street food seafood shell, and it was sensationally delicious. It was definitely only for you if you love seafood, and if you like seafood you'll for sure love this. Everything was extremely fresh and straight from the market itself. And again just like all Japanese food, this seafood wasn't overcooked at all, but just lightly cooked and it remained nice and juicy and flavorful. When I returned to my hotel that evening, we did some quick research, and discovered that the mysterious white thing on my shell was known as shirako, which translates to cod sperm. Apparently during the winter season in Japan, shirako is quite the delicacy. I've got to admit, it wasn't my favorite thing on my shell, but it wasn't bad, and I would definitely eat it again. If you visit the Tsukiji fish market and need an awesome little treat, you'll find the number of vendors selling these scallop treats. At 800 JPY ($7.81), this wasn't the cheapest street food snack, but it sure was worth it.

Indian Street Food in Kolkata  - GHUGNI CHAAT (Yellow Peas with Indian Spices)
 
02:51
This was one of my personal favorite Indian street food dishes in Kolkata, India. It's amazing! Few things are more beautifully displayed on the streets of Kolkata, India, than a dish known as Ghugni Chaat. It's bright yellow sculpture of yellow peas that sit on a podium while slowly simmering for hour upon hour. If the bright yellowness doesn't catch you attention, the bright red tomatoes, chilies, and cilantro will surely demand your attention. The ghugni chaat is easy to order, you simply put of your finger and ask for a portion. The vendor then proceeds to grab a leaf bowl, put in a big spoon of piping hot yellow peas, slash in a squeeze of lime, mix some fresh onions, tomatoes and cilantro in, and add salt and chili powder for even more flavoring. He then presents to you a bowl of ghugni chaat (pretty cool name too). I ate ghugni chaat numerous times in Kolkata, India, in the New Market area. Here you'll find a tantalizing variety of Indian street food that's cheap and tasty. This place of the dish costs just 10 Rupees and you'll definitely love it!

One of the BEST Restaurants I ate at in New Delhi, India - Bhape Da Hotel
 
04:00
North Indian food is characterized by rich curries and breads. While in New Delhi, I ate at Bhape Da Hotel, a restaurant that was one of my favorites. More about New Delhi in my guide: http://migrationology.com/delhi-travel-guide-ebook/ Karims Restaurant may be one of the most famous dining establishments in all of Delhi, and it was delicious, but I didn't think it was as good as Bhape Da Hotel. I originally found this restaurant by searching this website http://www.zomato.com/ncr/bhape-da-hotel-connaught-place-delhi, and since I was heading to Connaught Place, I decided I needed to stop in this legendary eater to sample some North Indian food in New Delhi, India. Bhape Da Hotel is just about everything I look for in a restaurant, there's a crowd of men standing outside, it's small and homey, it's hot and stuffy, and there's little conversation from diners, all the talk and shouting only comes from order food and from the staff - diners are silent enjoying the moment. Again, I had little idea of what North Indian food to order when I arrived, so I asked the owner, what dishes he recommend and without hesitation he mentioned the saag mutton (or mutton sag, saag gosht). You may be familiar with the famous Indian food of palak paneer which is paneer cheese in a spinach puree curry blend. Saag is another name for palak, or spinach, and this dish was similar except instead of paneer cheese it was replaced with a huge chunk of mutton - that's what I'm talking about! I also ordered the chicken curry, and a stack of freshly cooked tandoori rotis which are very similar to thinner and slightly crispy naan breads. The food is all prepared already, so when you order they just dish the luscious curries out the pots and deliver them to your table with haste. The aroma was almost too much to handle, the food was calling my name. Both the dishes arrived to my table and I was ready to dig in. At Bhape Da Hotel, I started things off by breaking bread and dipping it into the thick saag mutton gravy; It was heavenly. Then I took to the bone, and the mutton literally just slid off the bone with ease, the meat dripping with the saag sauce and plenty of oil. Then I sampled the chicken curry, which was equally rich and superbly flavored with an array of spices. Both of the North Indian food curries I enjoyed at Bhape Da Hotel restaurant in New Delhi, India, were outstanding and I would gladly take another pilgrimage there just to eat them. They were both extremely rich and oily, but they sure are worth it every now and then.

I watched them making this Indonesian street food specialty and rather than normal fried rice with is dry fried in a wok, this is actually almost more like a biryani. The meat is cooked in a curry like sauce, before a huge amount of rice is added. The rice was very fragrant with lots of cinnamon and spices added. The meat, some of it was quite tender, while other pieces were a little grizzly, but had wonderful meaty flavor. When you’re in Jakarta and looking for a legendary Indonesian street food stall, Nasi Goreng Kambing Kebon Sirih is a great place to go for nasi goreng kambing (goat fried rice).

Manila to Boracay (Not Quite As Planned)
 
12:40
On Day 5 in the Philippines, along with Anton and his family, we flew to the island of Boracay to spend 2 days. Things didn’t go quite as planned, as our first flight was canceled, but we did end up making it to Boracay at the end of the day, and then got checked into Discovery Shores Hotel. Anton’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/antondiaz 00:30 Going to the Airport - We took a taxi in the morning to the airport, and arrived and checked in. The line and security was pretty tight, but didn’t take too long. 2:08 Flight Canceled and Rebooked - Cebu Pacific is notorious in the Philippines for delayed and canceled flights, and today was no different. We were supposed to fly from Manila to Caticlan, but our flight was canceled, and we had to re-route on another flight to Kalibo airport, about 2 hours from Boracay. 2:36 Lunch at Airport - Lunch at the airport wasn’t anything too impressive, nor was the food supplied by Cebu Pacific. 4:55 Flight to Kalibo, Boracay - Finally, even our re-routed flight was late by 1.5 hours, but we finally took off the Kalibo Airport, towards Boracay island. 6:19 Where is Boracay? - Boracay is a small island off the coast of Aklan. The closest airport is Caticlan, and about 2 hours away is another airport called Kalibo. 7:19 Boat ride to Boracay - After taking a van for about 2 hours to get to the pier, we then took a quick boat ride to Boracay island and we headed to Discovery Shores Hotel where we stayed for 2 nights. 10:00 Dinner at Discovery Shores Boracay - Dinner was served on the beach, along with Anton and his family, and everything was pretty good. Disclosure: We were invited to stay at Discovery Shores Boracay, so we didn’t pay for our stay. But everything in this video, and all thoughts are my own. ---------------------------------------- This food travel video was produced by Mark Wiens and Ying Wiens.

How to Eat Traditional Hawaiian Food in Honolulu (in HD)
 
02:49
Go to http://migrationology.com/2012/04/traditional-hawaiian-food-dishes/ for the best Hawaiian food... check it out now! Even after eating lots of different cuisines, Hawaiian food still ranks as a favorite. Whenever I'm in Hawaii, I'm always happy to dine on luau style foods from the islands. Here's a quick rundown of the traditional dishes I eat during this video. The first thing is called poi. Poi is Hawaii's staple dish. It's a thick starchy pudding paste like substance that's slightly fermented so it's a little sour. The paste goes great with lomi salmon or other vegetables. Chicken long rice, though Chinese in origin, has become one of the popular Hawaiian foods. It's basically just long glass noodles cooked in chicken soup and served with pieces of chicken in it. Laulau is the next dish on the list. The popular dish can either be made with pork, chicken or sometimes fish and it's wrapped in luau leaves. The leaves and meat cook together into a spectacular flavor. Lomi lomi salmon is the combination of tomatoes, onions, and raw salmon. The luau dish is common and is really good when eaten alongside a bowl of poi. Poke is the sushi of the islands. Though it can be made from a variety of fish, the most common is cubes of ahi tuna marinated in soy sauce and sea salt. The tender cubes of fresh fish are wonderful! Fruit, like Hawaiian pineapple is always great for dessert! Though traditional Hawaiian food has adapted to the many cultures in Hawaii (now including things like SPAM musubi and chicken katsu), there are still so many uniquely Hawaiian dishes origination from Polynesia.

Sundubu jjigae (순두부찌개) - Korea's ultimate comfort food!
 
03:23
Read the full article about this marvelous Sundubu Jjigae (재동순두부) right here: http://migrationology.com/2013/12/sundubu-jiggae-is-this-the-worlds-most-comforting-comfort-food/ Flying on my way from Bangkok to Hawaii on Korean Air, I had a 10 hour layover. Now at first I wanted to just sit back in a chair at the airport for my layover in Seoul (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-zrjBpKGiI) and use the fast wi-fi to get some work done. But as I thought more about the food, I couldn't help myself from, not just the want, but the need to take a trip into Seoul with the intention of eating. Something I was really looking forward to, that I had been itching to eat, was a dish known as Sundubu Jiggae (순두부찌개) - a dish I think is one of the world's most comforting comfort foods. So as soon as landing at the Seoul airport, we headed to the subway station, and took the train all the way into Seoul station, before navigating our way through the hectic Seoul transit system and exiting at Anguk station and Exit #2 (more directions towards the bottom). It took a few minutes, but we eventually found our lunch time destination: Jaedong Sundubu (재동순두부) - a restaurant renowned for serving this wonderful comfort food. Just by chance, we arrived right during lunchtime, or on the tail end of lunchtime, and the restaurant was packed out. We had to wait for a table, which luckily only took about 15 minutes. What is Sundubu Jjigae (순두부찌개)? It's a Korean dish that's made from tofu, but it's not any kind of boring tofu, it's sundubu, a tofu that's outrageously soft and and it's un-curdled. I'm not exactly sure what that means and how it's made, but one thing I can tell you is that the tofu is so incredibly soft, it's like baby food. The tofu is cooked in a broth made from red chili and red chili oil and then there are bits of seafood and an egg plopped into the middle. Sundubu Jjigae (재동순두부) is served in one of those awesome Korean earthenware bowls that keep hot and piping throughout your meal. It was a cold day on the day I had my layover in Seoul, and I needed something warm... because my jacket was far inadequate for the coldness! I knew I was going to love the food Jaedong Sundubu (재동순두부) as I was waiting to be seated, I could just smell and feel that the food was going to be awesome. Another great thing at the restaurant is that you can dish yourself as much kimchi and other side banchan dishes as you like - so believe me - I took full advantage of the kimchi bar by scooping up quite a few rounds of kimchi. The Sundubu Jjigae (순두부찌개) arrived piping hot to my table, and it was everything I had hoped for - so soft and spicy and flavorful, and along with the rice, it was amazing! If you're in Seoul, you should definitely check out this restaurant, the tofu soup is outstanding. To get there take the subway to Anguk station, Exit #2, then go straight less than 100 meters until you see the blue sign for Bukchon-ro 2-gil, then make a right into the small alley way and walk about 20 meters and you'll see the sign for the restaurant - but beware that the sign in only in Korean.

Goong Ob Woon Sen at Somsak Pu Ob (สมศักดิ์ ปูอบ) - Jumbo Prawns and Vermicelli
 
04:10
This is by far the best Goong Ob Woon Sen (กุ้งอบวุ้นเส้น) I've ever had. For more picture and information about this Bangkok street food stall, click here - http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2013/07/thai-seafood-somsak-pu-ob-bangkok/ Goong Ob Woon Sen (กุ้งอบวุ้นเส้น) is a popular Thai dish that includes just a few ingredients. If it's cooked poorly, meaning the vermicelli noodles and the shrimp are overcooked and mushy, then it's a terrible dish. But if it's cooked correctly, like at Somsak Pu Ob (สมศักดิ์ ปูอบ), it's absolutely outstanding! The best thing about this extremely famous Bangkok street food stall is that they only serve a few dishes. The menu is actually just taped to the tables as soon as you walk up, and there are only about 5 items you can choose from. The most famous Thai dish is a dish known as Pu Ob Woon Sen (ปูเนื้ออบวุ้นเส้น). The vendor starts by throwing the crab along with some fresh ingredients and herbs like coriander root, and lots of black pepper into the bottom of a single bowl skillet. Expertly, he lights the fire on an intense flame, cooking the ingredients with a scorch. When the crab has finished cooking, the vendor that tosses in a mixture of glass rice vermicelli noodle sand puts the lid on for a few more seconds. Finally some chives are thrown on top to complete the dish and it's served. But while the Pu Ob Woon Sen (ปูเนื้ออบวุ้นเส้น) at Somsak Pu Ob (สมศักดิ์ ปูอบ) is the most famous, I preferred the Goong Ob Woon Sen (กุ้งอบวุ้นเส้น). It's essentially the same thing, but instead of crab, jumbo prawns are used. One thing I love most about Thai Bangkok street food is the vendors that specialized and become extreme experts in cooking just a single or a very few dishes. The cook at Somsak Pu Ob (สมศักดิ์ ปูอบ) didn't work all that fast, but he did everything to exact precision, making sure he didn't overcook anything or make any mistakes. This Thai street food strives for excellence, and though they are extremely popular with local Thais and get plenty of business each evening, they have maintained their standard of high quality! Here's all the restaurant street food stall information if you want to visit this awesome place in Bangkok: Somsak Pu Ob (สมศักดิ์ ปูอบ) Address: Thanon Charoen Rat Soi 1, Khlong San, Bangkok Open hours: Monday -- Saturday from 5 pm -- 10 pm, Sunday from 4 pm -- 10 pm (but they often sell out early) Prices -- 300 -- 500 THB per person เจริญรัถ เขตคลองสาน ถ.เจริญรัูถ ซอย1 กรุงเ่ทพ โทร. 081-823-9706 จันทร์ -- เสาร์ เปิด. 17.00 -- 22.00 อาทิตย์ เปิด 16.00 -- 22.00 The easiest way to get there is to take the BTS Skytrain to Wongwian Yai station, then take Exit 3 towards Sarapai 3, and you'll eventually come to Charoen Rat. The restaurant is on Soi 1, but again, see this article for more information: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2013/07/thai-seafood-somsak-pu-ob-bangkok/ Follow our food adventures at http://migrationology.com/ & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/ & http://travelbyying.com/ Bangkok 101 Guide: http://migrationology.com/ebook-101-things-to-do-in-bangkok/ Thai Food Guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/eating-thai-food-guide/ Finally, subscribe so you don't miss the next tasty adventure http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=migrationology

Soto Betawi: AMAZING Indonesian Food You Have to Eat in Jakarta, Indonesia!
 
09:15
►Read more about this amazing Soto Betawi here: https://migrationology.com/soto-betawi-haji-husein/ ►Subscribe for more food videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe Soto Betawi is an Indonesian soup dish that originates right in Jakarta. Soto is a term that can refer to many varieties of different soups originating from across the Indonesian archipelago. The Betawis are the group of people who are originally from the area where modern day Jakarta is located. So the English name for Soto Betawi would be Jakarta soup, or Jakarta beef soup. There are many restaurants in Jakarta that serves soto Betawi, but I chose to go to Soto Betawi Haji Husein (it’s also sometimes spelled H. Husen). I arrived at the restaurant, and it was already packed with customers. They were doing all the food assembling and some of the cooking at the front of the restaurant, and they had some bar counter seating, but it was so full and busy, that I decided to just grab a communal table seat in the middle of the restaurant. Ying and I both ordered soto Betawi, and they first brought us some black tea. Next they brought us each a plate of rice topped with crispy shallots, and in a few minutes they delivered us our bowls of soto. The soto was milky looking and yellow in color. On my first bite, I thought it tasted similar to Thai tom kha gai - a coconut milk soup. The soto Betawi was milky, but not too rich - I think it was a combination of perhaps coconut milk or mostly regular fresh milk to give it a creaminess, but it wasn’t too rich to the point where it was hard to drink the soup. Additionally, there were lots of aromatic herbs and spices within the soup, I could taste the kaffir lime leaves and the galangal. The main bulk of the soup was beef, and there were bite sized pieces of beef in the bottom of the bowl. The meat tasted like it had been slightly dehydrated, like half to beef jerky, so it had a little bit of a smoky flavor. But at the same time the beef in the soto was very tender. Soto Betawi is an amazing dish and one of the Indonesian foods you have to eat when you’re in Jakarta, because that’s where it originates. There are many places where you can try soto Betawi, and Soto Betawi Haji Husein is one of the most legendary spots in Jakarta. Soto Betawi Haji Husein (H. Husen) Address: Jalan Padang Panjang No. 6C, Kel. Pasar Manggis, Kec. Setiabudi, Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta, Indonesia 7 am - 2 pm from Saturday - Thursday (closed on Friday) Total price - 110,000 IDR ($8.34) for 4 bowls of soto and rice Soto Betawi review on my blog: https://migrationology.com/soto-betawi-haji-husein/ -- MY WEBSITES: Migrationology.com: http://migrationology.com/ EatingThaiFood.com: http://eatingthaifood.com/ TravelByYing.com: http://travelbyying.com/ T-shirts & Food Guides: https://migrationology.com/store/ Resources: http://migrationology.com/travel-resources/ SOCIAL MEDIA: Snapchat: @migrationology Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology ►You might also be interested in my Jakarta Travel Guide for Food Lovers: https://migrationology.com/travel-guides/jakarta-indonesia/ --

Seattle Food Tour - $9.95 GOURMET PASTAS and SMOKED SALMON | Best Restaurants in Seattle!
 
21:47
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Welcome to Seattle, Washington, a beautiful city on the shores of the Puget Sound. Seattle is known for its Pacific Northwest cuisine, gorgeous scenery, and there are some pretty amazing restaurants that you need to try. I set off in the morning to begin this Seattle food tour in downtown Seattle. Il Corvo - Known as one of the best and most affordable handmade pasta restaurants in the USA, Il Corvo is a small restaurant that serves amazing pastas. I had heard the line would get crazy, so I made sure to arrive early, and luckily I was first in line for the day. After waiting in line for about 45 minutes, they opened. They only have three main pastas a day, and so the easy choice is to just order them all. Today they happened to have rigatoni alla bolognese, paccheri, and fusilli, all of which were handmade and cooked al dente. My favorite pasta was the rigatoni alla bolognese, because when it comes to pasta I usually enjoy the tomato sauce variety the best. It was really good, and great gourmet food value for the price. Price - $39.73 for everything Seattle Fish Guys - Next on this best restaurants of Seattle food tour, we drove over to the Seattle Fish Guys. They are a family fish restaurants and market that used to be at Pike Place Market, but recently opened their own shop to have more flexibility and be able to make more food. They had seen some of my videos, so when we walked in the owners kindly took care of us and brought us a samplers platter of many of their signature dishes. Their food is incredible, and if you love seafood and fish, Seattle Fish Guys is a must eat in Seattle. Everything was good, but I particularly loved their seafood Cajun style gumbo and their smoked salmon belly. It proved to be such a huge meal that I honestly called it a day there, but there was still one more food I had to try on this food tour. Thank you to the Seattle Fish Guys for this amazing meal! Un Bien - There’s a long legend surrounding the Caribbean roast sandwiches at Un Bien, and I won’t get into all the details here. But to cut to the chase, Un Bien serves the original version, from the same family. They have quite an extensive menu of sandwiches, but I went straight for the Caribbean Roast, roast pork cooked until fall apart tender. It was delicious and a perfect way to finish off this Seattle food tour. Price - $11.50 Thank you for watching this Seattle food tour - a few of what I think are the best restaurants in Seattle!

22-Course THAI FOOD! | Rare Ingredients at Sorn (ศรณ์) | Best Restaurants in Bangkok!
 
17:00
►Check out Pup (https://www.instagram.com/puppup_foodlife/), Yod (https://www.instagram.com/yodkwan_2526/), and Ice (https://www.instagram.com/ice_supaksorn/) for amazing food! ►Read my blog post for details: https://www.eatingthaifood.com/sorn-restaurant-bangkok/ I had a special opportunity to eat at Sorn (ศรณ์), a newly opened fine dining Thai restaurant - the only of its kind in Bangkok specializing in only Southern Thai food. And since Southern Thai food is my personal favorite regional variations of Thai cuisine (my wife is from the South of Thailand), I was very very excited. Sorn (ศรณ์) Restaurant is set in a beautifully restored home, just on the back side of Phrom Phong. It’s like a museum when you step inside, filled with history of Southern Thailand, the people, food, ingredients, and tools used. One of the greatest things about Sorn (ศรณ์) and owners and chefs is that they don’t take any shortcuts. All the chili curry pastes, which form the base for many dishes, are pounded by hand, making sure everything has maximum flavor potential. Even the rice is cooked in a claypot, traditional style, that’s very rare to find anymore. Additionally, 99.9% of the ingredients are not just from Thailand, but sourced directly from Southern Thailand. Some of the ingredients are impossible to find in Bangkok, and only seasonally available in a tiny region of Southern Thailand. Chef Yod and Khun Ice have done extensive research and traveling around Thailand sourcing only the best ingredients, and it really shows. Here are some of the 22 dishes (there were a few other dishes as well that I didn’t include to save time) we ate in this fine dining Southern Thai food experience: Cashew nut relish (น้ำพริกกากหมู) Sand mole crabs (จักจั่นทะเล) 2 C° Lobster (กุ้งมังกร 7สี) Lobster claw and head curry (จอแหร้ง) Gems on crab stick (กรรชูเปียง) Grilled southern beef (เนื้อกอและ) Rice mix (ข้าวยำ) Grilled chili paste (น้ำชุบพรก) Yellow curry (แกงเหลือง) Fish innards curry (แกงไตปลา) Stink beans and squid (ผัดสะตอ) Clear soup (แกงจืดลูกรอก) Grilled crispy pork (คั่วกลิ้งหมูย่าง) Coconut rice, shrimp curry (ข้าวมันแกง) Torch ginger flower sorbet (ล้างปาก) Mutant coconut, ice cream (ไอติมน้ำตาลมะพร้าว) Fruits and ice (ส้มฉุน) It was an incredible meal, with some ingredients I had never seen or tried before. What’s unique and fascinating about Sorn (ศรณ์) Restaurant is that they’ve taken Southern Thai food and adapted it into a fine dining environment by sourcing top ingredients, and keeping things traditional while occasionally using modern technique to increase flavor and quality. It’s a high end, gourmet Thai meal experience, and it was a real treat!

Thai Street Food - Pla Pao (Roasted Fish) at Central World Street Food Stalls in Bangkok!

Check out my Thai street food guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/eating-thai-food-guide/ and also my travel and street food website here http://migrationology.com/ One of the best things about visiting Bangkok is taking advantage of the incredible array of Thai street food available. It's nearly everywhere you look and it's mostly quite sanitary, affordable, and most importantly, it's incredible delicious. There's Thai street food all over Bangkok and throughout the entire country. One of the most popular shopping areas in the city is known as Pratunam, an area that's just a short distance from Siam shopping area and just a short walk from Central World mall. Everyday, thousands of pedestrians pass this little stretch next to Central World and for that reason, there's an abundance of wonderful street food available. Starting at about 5 pm each day, there are a series of full Thai street food restaurants that set up just outside of Central World shopping mall in Bangkok. The place that I ate at in the video goes by Ratchaprasong Thai Food (ราชประสงค์ ไทยฟู้ด). They specialize in mostly Isaan cuisine from the northeaster part of the country, but they also have some other stir fried Chinese style dishes as well. But when I go, I mostly go with an intent to eat a few of the items off the grill! Plan chon pao (ปลาช่อนเผา), or roasted snake head fish, is the top reason to visit these street stalls. The grills are absolutely packed with this ugly, yet tasty creatures. To prepare them Thai style, the fish is first stuffed in the mouth with lemongrass and herbs and then rolled in a thick layer of salt. The fish is then slow roasted on open charcoal as it slow cooks. The result is a flaky fish that's a gem of Thai street food. Served with a seafood sauce, called nam jim seafood, it's amazing. The fish is flaky and remains moist and flavorful from the cooking process. I also tried their grilled chicken, known as gai yang in Thai. It was indeed flavorful, but my only complaint is that it was slightly dry. However, that's just sort of the way street food may be, some pieces of chicken might be dry and others nice and moist. Lastly, now Thai meal on the street like this would be complete without a helping of green papaya salad. I asked for it spicy, and they didn't fail to load it with spicy chillies. Made with fresh ingredients, the green papaya was crisp and mixed with a tomatoes, dry shrimp, chillies, garlic, palm sugar, fish sauce, and lime juice. It was excellent. Along with the other dishes, I also enjoyed a few plates of Thai sticky rice to bring the meal together! Sitting on the side of the busy road and with countless pedestrians that walk past every minute, Ratchaprasong Thai Food (ราชประสงค์ ไทยฟู้ด) doesn't have the greatest ambiance. But it sure is convenient and the Thai street food there is quite appetizing! Hours: 5 pm - 2 am daily Prices: 100 - 200 THB per person for a full meal, the meal we ate above came to 300 THB Address: Sidewalk outside Bangkok's Central World shopping center How To Get There: Take the BTS to Chit Lom station, walk towards Ratchaprasong road and then cross the street to Central World shopping mall. Procee to walk past the mall and on your way to Pratunam, and it would be impossible to miss these Thai street food stalls. I go to the first one. Open only after 5 pm. Thank you for watching!

Street Food in India - Bengali Fish Curry and Rice on Camac Street, Kolkata, India!
 
02:31
Check out my website http://migrationology.com/ for lots more Indian street food! | Have Facebook? https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Kolkata (Calcutta), India, is one of the most best cities in the world when it comes to street food. A quick walk around the central part of town and you'll find jhal muri, kati rolls, ghugni chaat, pani puri, and plenty of other delicacies. But when it comes to full meal options, a snack just won't cut it, and you need real plate of rice - and luckily, Kolkata is full of street food meals as well. In this video I went over to Camac Street, just south of Park Street for lunch. It's a business street, not overly crowded or dirty, and they are known for serving lots of food to employees each day for lunch. There are a number of places to choose from, and when I saw a crowd gathered at this lunch stall serving Bengali food, I was ready to order. I had no clue what he was serving as everything was contained in big pots with the lids shut, so I just ended up order a mixed plate with fish curry. It was accompanied by cauliflower curry and some kind of potato curry as well as a chutney and pickled onions and carrots. Standing on the side of the Camac Street I dug in with my fingers. The food was wonderfully tasty, the fish was especially good. After cleaning my plate clean, you just toss your plastic plate on the ground somewhere and proceed to wash your hands while someone pours water for you. One of the best things about eating street food in Kolkata is that it won't break your budget. This delicious full lunch of rice and curry cost me just 30 Indian Rupees, which is equivalent to about $0.55 cents, a pretty steal of a deal in my opinion! If you're not full, you can proceed to eating any number of other street food along the road or just grab a cup of chai in a clay cup. It's really easy to get to Camac Street in Kolkata, it's just off the main Park Street, then go down Camac Street at lunchtime and you'll be greeted by delicious street food!

Philippines Street Food - AMAZING Filipino Food at Aling Sosing's Carinderia in Manila!
 
12:52
One of the best Filipino food meals you can eat in Manila! ►Subscribe to my channel for more food videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe Aling Sosing's is often considered to be one of the best carinderias, or local Filipino food restaurants, in all of Manila. The crowd that shows up to eat lunch here everyday reinforces the fact that they are no doubt one of the spots you want to be in Manila, if you’re a food lovers. When I was eating in Manila, eating at Aling Sosing's was certainly among the best local Filipino food restaurants that I tried. Aling Sosing's is a very typical type of local street food restaurant, sitting on the corner of a street, near to Makati. Just like most carinderias, all the food is prepared ahead of time, and sits at the front of the restaurant. When you arrive to order, you just simply pick and choose the different dishes that you want to order, find a table, and they will bring you the dishes to your table. Additionally, some of the famous dishes to eat at Aling Sosing's are off the grill, and you’ll smell the wonderful aroma of the grilling meats the entire time you’re eating, and it’s fantastic. Ying and I arrived about 11 am on a weekday, and luckily we beat the main lunch traffic, but just barely. There were tables available when we arrived, but as soon as we sat down and order it filled up. Sof if you eat at Aling Sosing's Carinderia you might want to arrive before the main lunch rush. Additionally, some of the Filipino food dishes sell out fast, and they don’t cook them again for the day - once they are sold out, they are done for the day. Here are the main Filipino dishes I ordered: Pinakbet - A stew of mixed vegetables, oftentimes flavored with shrimp paste. This was the best versions of pinakbet I’ve ever had. Inihaw na tilapia - The grilled tilapia is quite well known at this restaurant. It was simple and delicious. Inihaw na liempo - The grilled pork belly is one of their signature dishes, and it’s every bit as good and smoky as it looks. Kaldereta - A Filipino food I love so much is kaldereta, a goat stew, mainly because I love goat so much. It was oily, but really good. Adobong pusit - I saw the squid the pot and decided to try it out. It was a little on the sweet side. Pork BBQ - Fresh off the grill, Ying and I ordered some of their pork bbq. The pork was tender and lathered in bbq, it was amazing. Total price - 640 PHP ($12.90) If you’re looking for a local Filipino restaurant in Manila that I think serves some of the best Filipino food, Aling Sosing's is a restaurant you’re going to want to check out. The food is awesome, the setting and positive atmosphere is refreshing, and the constant smoke from the grill will keep your nose happy and wanting more! Aling Sosing’s Carinderia Address: Palanan 5819 Zobel Roxas, Palanan Makati City, Philippines Open hours: 8 am - 6 pm from Monday - Saturday -- Camera gear I use: Main camera: http://amzn.to/2dEL3hv Main lens: http://amzn.to/2e5Lum6 2nd camera: http://amzn.to/2mczuDx 2nd lens: http://amzn.to/2mcEGau Microphone: http://amzn.to/2dEr9Z9 Gorillapod: http://amzn.to/2epFsQx *These are Amazon affiliate links I would love to connect with you!

Flying from Bangkok to Langkawi, Malaysia (Day 1)
 
15:28
►Blog: http://migrationology.com/blog/ ►Follow on Instagram: http://instagram.com/migrationology ►Get live updates on SNAPCHAT: migrationology I was invited by Naturally Langkawi (Tourism Malaysia) to visit the island of Langkawi to explore and to eat. My wife and I are based in Bangkok, so we woke up early to catch our flight from Bangkok to Langkawi, and we arrived just in time for lunch. After grabbing our bag from Langkawi airport we jumped in the car and took a drive to Seashells Restaurant, located in laman padi, a rice field. The setting of the restaurant was really nice, with wooden cabanas built over the top of a rice field. We ordered a few different nasi campur dishes, including daging kurma, a beef and coconut milk curry and ayam masak merah, a red chicken curry as well, and we also got some other chicken curry, omelet, and finally both fried fish and Malaysian grilled fish known as ikan bakar. I thought the food was over quite good, and the setting inside the rice field was also very nice. Lunch accomplished we headed to The Andaman hotel, located on the very northwestern side of Langkawi island. But on the way driving there, we stopped at a local food stall where we enjoyed a few local deep fried snacks and fritters and a donut. I’ll admit, even though I’m not a big sweets fan, that everything was quite tasty - I especially liked the little deep fried banana bread balls. The Andaman is a very nice hotel, with a private stretch of beach, and so the first thing, after walking around the hotel was to take a swim. After the swim, we ate dinner at Jala Restaurant, a restaurant that’s located at The Andaman hotel. It was a great day traveling from Bangkok to Langkawi, and thank you to Naturally Langkawi for organizing this trip.

Chiang Mai Street Food at Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก)
 
06:00
There's a lot of delicious Chiang Mai street food to eat when you visit, and one of my favorite places in the city, during the evening is Chang Phueak. More details here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/04/khao-kham-moo-chang-phueak/ If you love to eat Thai street food, you'll have no problem discovering the full range, more like a plethora of food available at your fingertips when you're in Chiang Mai. From the morning until the evening you'll find street food vendors scattered throughout the city, and tucked into shopping markets. While there are many places to eat Chiang Mai street food in the evening, one place that I really like is called Pratu Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก), which literally translates to the sacred white elephant gate. It's located right across the street from the north side of the Chiang Mai wall, so the area is easily accessible central Chiang Mai. During the daytime, Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก) is more of just an empty sidewalk, with some stores, but not too much going on. In the evening is when the Chiang Mai street food stall begin to set up their shops and open for business. My wife told me there were two main stall we needed to eat at, one for the stewed pork leg, known in Thai as kha moo, and one for the suki, the Thai style of sukiyaki. We first started with a stall known as Khao Kha Moo Chang Phueak (ข้าวขาหมูช้างเผือก). You'll know you're in the right spot because of the owner, who is the vendor, who sells her stewed pork leg while wearing a cowboy hat - you can also call her stall, the Cowboy lady street food stall in Chiang Mai, and everyone will know who you're talking about. She serves a Thai dish known as khao kha moo (ข้าวขาหมู), which is pork leg or knuckle, served with rice. I ordered just a normal plate, so it came with rice on the bottom and a good handful of tender pork on top. Along with the pork, I got a hard boiled egg and then garnished my entire dish with vinegar, raw garlic, and raw chilies. I would have to say it was one of the better plates of khao kha moo (ข้าวขาหมู) that I've ever had - I would highly recommend it. After completing my plate of khao kha moo (ข้าวขาหมู), I went next door to the next Chiang Mai street food stall known as Suki Koka (สุกี้โคคา). They are equally as famous as the pork leg stall, but for the Thai dish of suki. You can either order the dry stir fried version, or the soup version of Thai suki: I got the suki haeng moo (สุกี้แห้งหมู), the dry version with pork. It was a mixture of mostly napa cabbage, pork, and mung bean noodles, all served with a sauce that was tangy and had a wonderful aroma of sesame oil to it. I absolutely loved the suki at Suki Koka (สุกี้โคคา). It was different from other Thai versions that I've had before, and it was so fresh and there was so much flavor packed into it - excellent. There are a few other street food stalls to choose from, but these two are the most popular, and I think they serve the best food. Here are the two street food stalls I ate at Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก). Khao Kha Moo Chang Phueak (ข้าวขาหมูช้างเผือก): http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/04/khao-kham-moo-chang-phueak/ Suki Koka (สุกี้โคคา): http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/04/suki-koka-chiang-mai/ When you're looking for great street food in Chiang Mai, make sure you go to Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก) in the evening and eat at these two stalls.

Thai Seafood Feast: Family Vacation in Pattaya
 
09:15
Get the recipe for Thai seafood sauce, and see more of our Thai seafood feast here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2015/07/thai-seafood-sauce-recipe/ One of the reasons we had to come back from Koh Samui so soon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKWr14KES6Q&index=1&list=PLeoy0zUu6bqlq-PMy4IrIwLBkjq6IEJ7t) was because my wife Ying had already made plans months ago with her sister’s and family to take a quick family vacation to a beach house in Pattaya, about an hour from Bangkok on the beach. I really didn’t have much of a clue what we were going to do at the beginning of the day, all I knew is that we rented a car, we were heading to Pattaya, and I was driving. We left Bangkok at about 8 am after picking up our car, and after getting out of Bangkok we drove to Chonburi, and more specifically to an area called Ang Sila to go to Ang Sila Market (ตลาดอ่างศิลา), one of the best fresh fish and seafood markets in the area. I think it was my first time to go to this market, and I was pretty excited, not only because I love going to markets, but also because I love seafood. Ang Sila Market (อ่างศิลา) is a pretty good sized seafood market, and they have a variety of both dried seafood and snacks, and fresh seafood. We went to the market for the fresh seafood. I was walking around filming and taking as many photo as I could, but my wife and her family started shopping for our Thai seafood feast. They bought a bunch of seafood, probably more than I can remember. This was going to turn out to be a great Thai family vacation to Pattaya! We got back into the car and drive to Pattaya and arrived to our hotel - a family style beach house at a place called Moonlight On The Sea Resort. Our house was pretty basic, but it was quite nice, facing the sea, with 4 rooms I think, and a really nice open downstairs and full kitchen. It was the type of house that was made for an entire family or a group of friends to come and hang out and eat and enjoy a peaceful side of Pattaya. The house also happened to be right next to the famous Sanctuary of Truth Pattaya - although we didn’t go inside because it has a pretty high entrance fee. After arriving to the beachhouse and checking in, we got straight to cooking all the seafood - ok, they all got straight to cooking, and I watched and took as many photos and videos as I could. Thai seafood sauce recipe: Be sure to read the full blog post, which includes a Thai seafood sauce recipe, here: But I just want to say that one of the best ways to enjoy Thai seafood is to just cook it plain, either boil, grill, or steam, or anything plain, and eat it with what in Thai is called nam jim seafood, or seafood sauce. As long as you have a big bowl of Thai seafood sauce you can cook the seafood completely plain, and you’ll be able to have an amazing Thai seafood meal. Here are the ingredients for this recipe: Just crush or grind the garlic and chilies, then mix everything else together in a bowl. You’re not done yet. Part of cooking Thai food is taste testing. You need to taste test to make sure it’s the balance of flavors you’re after. I like mine more sour and spicy, while my family likes it sweeter. So keep mixing and matching until you’ve got a perfect Thai seafood sauce. Let the recipe ingredients just be a guide. That was really it for the day for this family vacation to Pattaya. I had a great time at Ang Sila Market (อ่างศิลา), and our seafood feast was incredible.

Irresistible Ethiopian Food - Tasty Meat Platter in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!
 
04:29
Ethiopian food is one of the world's greatest cuisines. Read my Ethiopian food guide here: http://migrationology.com/2014/02/ethiopian-food-guide/ When you taste the combination of injera, with meat and vegetables, you'll be in love! What is Ethiopian food? The first thing you have to know about the cuisine is the staple, known as injera. Injera is sort of like a spongy pancake, but it's airy and made from an ancient grain known as teff. This grain is really only used in Ethiopia and Eritrea, and apart being eaten by Ethiopians and Eritreans, it's not eaten by really any others around the world. Anyway, the teff flour is ground into a flour, made into a batter, and then fried into a huge circular pancake. When you eat Ethiopian food in Ethiopia, you are always served on a large platter that is first covered by a huge circle of injera that coats the bottom of the pan. You can then order whatever sort of dishes you want, either meat based dishes or vegetarian curries, and they will be dumped into the middle of your injera. Ethiopian cuisine is communally eaten, so whoever you are eating with, you share the same communal plate with them. In this particular video, I was eating alone, as my wife had already eaten, so I polished off the entire thing myself. Tipped off an article from Addis Eats (http://addiseats.com/2013/03/19/its-that-time-of-year-again/), I decided to go out one day in Addis Ababa to an area of town known as Chechnia to eat at a restaurant known as Grand Restaurant. It took a while to find, but we eventually stepped into the restaurant. The front is more of a dark room and a bar, but if you continue to the back of the Ethiopian restaurant you'll find a kind of makeshift table and chair area that's sort of like a canopy. The roof of the restaurant is covered in Ethiopian traditional paintings like coffee ceremonies and livestock. At Grand Restaurant you sort of eat what's available for the day. I ordered the meat mahberawi, which is basically a platter of injera topped with whatever meat and veg dishes are available that particular day. For this Ethiopian food meal, my mahberawi included key wat, a spicy Ethiopian beef curry, another curry that included potatoes, shiro wat, and an amazing tomato salad. The key wat was absolutely amazing, full of berbere spices and with just the right amount of oil so it was amazing but not overly greasy. The shiro wat, a stew made from ground chickpeas flour mixed with berbere spices and Ethiopian butter, was one of the best I had in my entire time in Ethiopia. Shiro wat is one of the most popular Ethiopian food dishes, and at Grand restaurant it is amazing. Finally, the tomato salad was also excellent to go with the other curries. The mix included slices tomatoes and onions seasoned with lemon juice, jalapenos, and a touch of salt and pepper. After polishing off all the dishes on the first round, I was still hungry so I decided to order another bowl full of the key wat, but this time I think it was lamb... though I'm not totally sure? Anyway, that drumstick of meat was excellent, the meat literally slid off the bone with ease and the flavor was outstanding. Ethiopian food is an amazing cuisine in the world, and if you ever have the chance to eat it, you should take it. Don't miss out on the amazing flavors of Ethiopia!

Spicy Thai Food! | LIQUID FIRE CURRY Restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand!
 
15:26
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ ►Drew’s channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/thehungrypartier Pla Mae Nam Restaurant (ร้านปลาแม่น้ำ), or river fish restaurant in one of my ultimate favorite restaurants in Bangkok, Thailand. If you love spicy food, this is a place you will love. This was a spur of the moment meal and video - I was hanging out with my friend Drew (https://www.youtube.com/user/thehungrypartier), and after going to a floating market, we happened to be not too far away. So we stopped off to eat at Pla Mae Nam Restaurant (ร้านปลาแม่น้ำ), a restaurant I’m willing to travel to the ends of the earth to eat at. They have a full menu of Thai dishes, most of them quite spicy, and most of them using freshwater fish - that’s even what the name of the restaurant is. Here are the dishes we ordered: Chili stir fry (ผัดเผ็ดปลาเค้า) - This is probably my favorite dish to order here, they make no mistakes, it’s literally liquid fire curry, and you can choose your choice of fish to go with it. The herbs also balance the heat, including both holy basil and sweet basil. Jungle curry eel (แกงป่าปลาไหล) - Here’s also one of the greatest dishes, and it happens to be one of the best versions in all of Bangkok for me. This jungle curry will blow your taste buds off your tongue! Fried fish cakes (ทอดมันปลากราย) - The fried fish cakes are a dish that just about no one who eats at Pla Mae Nam Restaurant (ร้านปลาแม่น้ำ) doesn’t order, and they happen to be the best I’ve ever had. They are so spongy. Fried fish (ปลาเนื้ออ่อนทอด) - Again, you can choose your fish, which is deep fried, topped with fried garlic, and served with sauce and pineapple. Fried frog (กบทอดกระเทียม) - Another dish we decided to try this meal was fried frog. The frog was very meaty, and delicious. Shrimp, stink beans (กุ้งผัดสะตอ) - Finally, our waitress talked us into ordering stink beans - it wasn’t very hard to talk me into it. It’s always a favorite dish of mine. It was superb, nothing short of flavor overdose in the mouth. Total price - 2,020 THB ($62.29) Pla Mae Nam Restaurant (ร้านปลาแม่น้ำ) Address: 145 Soi Ekkachai 131, Khwaeng Bang Bon, Khet Bang Bon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10150, Thailand Open hours: 11 am - 8 pm Google map: https://goo.gl/maps/cq5tjabRrXJ2 MUSIC: https://goo.gl/HwVjdo ***CAMERA GEAR*** I used to make this video (these are affiliate links): Main camera: http://amzn.to/2sV0XQO Main lens: http://amzn.to/2szLZNf 2nd lens: http://amzn.to/2EjBeEg Microphone: http://amzn.to/2rBKD3z Drone: http://amzn.to/2CrtAHz I would love to connect with you!

Unique Saigon Street Food - Waterfall Fried Chicken!
 
09:20
Cơm Gà Xối Mỡ Su Su is a Saigon street food restaurant that specializes in unique and amazing Vietnamese fried chicken. Read about it here: http://migrationology.com/2014/12/fried-chicken-saigon-vietnam/ When I asked where to eat on my trip to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, a few of you told me to check out a restaurant called Cơm Gà Xối Mỡ Su Su where the owner serves a unique and amazing style of Vietnamese grilled chicken. I actually stayed at a hotel, not too far away, so one day I decided to go check it out. I immediately recognized the restaurant by its orange chairs and by the metal shiny tables that everyone eats at, which are all lines up along the side of the wall. The most amazing thing about Cơm Gà Xối Mỡ Su Su is the owner’s street food cooking inventions. When I arrived at the restaurant, he was busy making his famous sauce, which was being stirred in a flat pan by a paddle attachment to what looked like a commercial sized mixer. He was pretty excited to show me what he was cooking, and that he had invented the machine himself. But even how cool the mixing machine was, nothing could prepare me from the amazing waterfall fried chicken machine, that the owner also created himself for his restaurant. He cooked the chicken almost all the way, probably just baking it or something like that, and when someone makes an order, he puts a piece of chicken under the waterfall or deep frying oil, and let’s it sit in the hot oil rain for a few minutes on each side until it turns golden brown and crispy on the outside. When you arrive to eat at Cơm Gà Xối Mỡ Su Su in Saigon, Vietnam, you basically have two choice of what to order - either a thigh or a breast of chicken. For my first plate of food, I chose to get the thigh, which came as a thigh and drumstick combination, paired with the restaurants signature orange fried rice, and the famous sauce. The chicken was crispy fried underneath the waterfall of hot oil, and it was crispy and delicious and hot. The sauce was a blend of garlic and onions, and lots of hoisin and soy sauce. The combination of the crunchy fried chicken with the sauce and the rice, was pretty wonderful. I liked it so much in fact, that I decided to order another piece of the fried chicken creation, and this time I ordered the white meat breast combination. It was actually better and bigger than the thigh I thought… so if I ever go back again, I’d probably go straight for the breast piece of chicken. The food at Cơm Gà Xối Mỡ Su Su was pretty tasty, but even better than the food, was the unique and amazing waterfall raining deep frying machine that the owner invented and cooks his chicken with. The owner is extremely friendly, and he will definitely take care of you if you eat at his restaurant in Saigon. Again, thank you all for recommending this restaurant to me, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Our final destination was the island of Koh Kood (เกาะกูด), and one of the best islands and most beautiful in Thailand. From the water to the beaches, to the jungle, you’ll be in awe. How to get to Koh Kood? We took the Boonsiri Ferry - 1,000 THB ($31.75) per person round-trip. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there. On this one day guide of food and travel in Koh Kood (เกาะกูด), we hired a pickup truck to drive us around (Private vehicle - 2,000 THB ($63.50) whole day) to some of the famous sites, beaches, and restaurants. It was an amazing day. The Sunshine Resort Koh Kood at Ao Phrao Beach (อ่าวพร้าว) - This is where we stayed for the first few nights in Koh Kood. A very nice relaxing quiet place. Khao Saleun (ข้าวสะลื่น) - It doesn’t really have a name, but this small rice and curry restaurant serves great food in Koh Kood. Mushroom curry (แกงเห็ดเสม็ด) Chicken curry (แกงไก่บ้าน) Total price - 100 THB ($3.17) Old Tree 1 Old Tree 2 Klong Chao Waterfall (น้ำตกคลองเจ้า) - There are a number of tropical waterfalls on Koh Kood, and we went to Klong Chao, because of its big pool of water. It did start raining, but it was still fun. Khao Reua Rub (เขาเรือรบ) - This is a shrine and there’s not much to see, but it’s interesting. Bang Bao Beach (บางเบ้า) - This is one of the best beaches in Koh Kood and in Thailand. Crystal clear bathtub water. Ao Yai Fisherman Village (บ้านอ่าวใหญ่) - One of the things I wanted to do most in Koh Kood was visit a fishing village to eat seafood. The village is great, and well worth checking out and exploring when you’re in Koh Kood. Chonthicha Restaurant (ร้านชลธิชา) - There are a few different seafood restaurants, but we chose this one. Squid with garlic (ปลามึกทอดกระเทียม) Murex sashimi (หอยเงาะ) Hoy pawk pad prik pao (หอยพอกผัดพริกเผา) Shrimp pineapple curry (แกงคั่วสับปะรด) Fried slipper lobster (กั้งกระดานทอดกระเทียม) Total price - 1,360 THB ($43.18) The most unique dish of the meal was Murex sashimi (หอยเงาะ), in Thai it’s called a Rambutan Shell, after the fruit. Koh Kood (เกาะกูด) is the type of island where you can go to your resort and just not move, and that is great. But there are also some amazing things to do when you’re there as well, and I hope this video gives you some great ideas. Thank you for watching!
