Overall, the food was good, but not the best Sri Lankan food I had. Flavors tasted too similar to each other. It is a good place to taste variety though. Dilmah Tea Lounge - After lunch we headed to a Dilmah Tea Lounge and drank a few teas all of which were very good. Ministry of Crab - Rated as one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Ministry of Crab is one of the most iconic restaurant serving seafood and especially Sri Lankan crabs in Colombo. It’s a high end restaurant, with prices that go with it, but I do have to admit that it was extremely tasty. The river shrimp, the black pepper crab was delicious. Price - about 30,000 LKR ($165.53) per OMG crab - I think it’s overpriced - but it is good.

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!

Itik Salai Masthar - When I visited Kuala Lumpur, I reached out on social media asking where to eat the best Malaysian food. A few of your recommended a restaurant known as Itik Salai Masthar, famous for their Malaysian style smoked duck curry. The display of ducks hanging over the grill was enough to force me to go straight to the restaurant without even thinking about it. We got there early in order to film some of the ducks before they opened - and I’m glad we arrived early because they were all so nice and showed us the entire process of how they make the duck curry. The ducks and meats are smoked, then chopped up into bite sized pieces, then cooked in a spicy coconut milk curry called Masak Lemak Cili Padi. One of the key herbal ingredients is turmeric leaf. If you’re looking for some of the best Malaysian food in Kuala Lumpur (it’s actually just outside of KL), go straight to Itik Salai Masthar, it will blow your taste buds!

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.

Indonesian street food is amazing! ►Subscribe for more videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts available now: https://migrationology.com/store Nasi Goreng Kambing Kebon Sirih is a legendary Jakarta street food stall that serves nasi goreng kambing (goat fried rice) in a huge way! Although some say that their fame has made them not as good as they previously were, I still think it’s an amazing place with an action packed street food atmosphere that you need to try when you’re in Jakarta. 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).

►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. Mentioned in the video: My travel guides: http://migrationology.com/travel-guides/ My travel resources: http://migrationology.com/travel-resources/ Learn to make a succesful travel blog (especially recommended if you're starting out): https://travelblogsuccess.com/?ref=18 [affiliate] Getting a job on a cruise ship: https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?ii=875328&c=ib&aff=168630&cl=120607 [affiliate] (Some things listed here, if you invest in it, I will get a commission, but these are all things I personally stand behind and recommend) Music in this video courtesy of Audio Network Get my FREE street food guide: http://wp.me/Psd9b-4pl Follow my adventures on http://migrationology.com/blog & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/blog/ Again, be sure to check out these two posts: ►How you can make money while traveling: http://migrationology.com/2014/02/how-to-make-money-while-traveling/ ►How to start a travel blog (or a blog about anything you want): http://migrationology.com/2015/04/how-to-start-a-travel-blog/

During the Best of Sri Lanka Food Tour with The Hungry Tourist, we were invited by Uchith and Nick to a relatives home, where they prepared a massive home cooked village cooking and eating experience. I went a little early to see some of the Sri Lankan food cooking and as they prepared all the dishes. Most of the Sri Lankan food dishes were prepared in earthenware clay pots, cooked over fire to give each dish an incredible complexity and smokiness. There were more than 19 different Sri Lankan food dishes that they prepared and that we tasted during the day. Some of the dishes were local regional southern Sri Lankan food, and each was spectacular in flavor and complexity of spice. I wanted to take a little of every single dish, and my plate piled up so high, I didn’t ever realize it. It was an absolutely Sri Lankan food feast!

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!

A group of my friends own the restaurant and they had just received a fresh piece of tuna and wanted to do some tasting. It was just just a top level sushi omakase (served piece by piece, chef’s choice) experience in Bangkok, but it was a tuna learning experience for me. Of all the times I’ve had sushi, I didn’t know much about the tuna. But this time, I learned about the origin, the quality, how it was wild caught, and even tasting the difference between completely fresh and aged, which gives it a different umami sensation. For out omakase this day, most of the sushi was based on tuna, and Umi Gaysorn Village is aiming to focus on wild tuna, but we also had a few other Japanese food delicacies including shirako (cod sperm) and plenty of incredible uni (sea urchin). It was an incredible meal. Umi serves one of the best Japanese food - sushi omakase especially focusing on tuna - in Bangkok, Thailand.

►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!

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.

It was one of the restaurants I had not ever heard of, so finally, one fine day we drove out to the restaurant to taste their food - specifically their seafood. Here are the dishes I ate at Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา): Shrimp fried with salt (กุ้งทอดเกลือ) - These massive shrimp are a must order, huge and so fresh and firm. They are deep fried with salt. Black pomfret (ปลาเต๋าเต้ยทอดกระเทียม) - This was one of the best dishes for me, a massive black pomfret, deep friend to an ultimate crisp, with tons of garlic. Crab relish (หลนปูเนื้อ) - Another one of the most famous dishes at Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา) is their entire crab in a coconut milk thick relish. It’s a traditional Thai dish, and it’s a bit on the sweet side, but really extraordinarily delicious. Crab chili dip (น้ำพริกเนื้อปู) - This simple de-shelled crab dip was fantastic. Snail curry (แกงคั่วหอยขม) - This was ok, but not the best version I’ve ever had. Long-whiskered catfish (ปลาอีกงราดพริดสูตรโบราณ) - This was a unique dish, very good deep fried catfish, covered in a thick and oily chili sauce. Fried pork fish sauce (หมูทอดน้ำปลา) - Finally, my wife ordered the fried pork with fish sauce. We ordered a lot of food, and all the Thai food at Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา) is served family style. So although it’s very expensive, we could have easily had 3 - 4 more people eating this entire meal to make the costs more manageable. Total price - 9,765 THB ($298.74) Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา) is an amazing restaurant, especially the seafood is what stood out. They are a 1 Michelin Star Thai food restaurant, well deserving. Well worth the drive!

Broadway Market is a Saturday market in London where you’ll find a variety of delicious food. Check out my blog here: http://migrationology.com/ When you’re in London on the weekends, one of the best things to do is go to one of the weekend markets. Broadway Market has been around since the late 1800’s, when it was a small neighborhood street. According to their website (http://www.broadwaymarket.co.uk/), the market began in the 1890’s and it was originally a place where people started selling their local produce. The market thrived, but during the years, as the economy went up and down, the market eventually passed and pretty much came to an end for a number of years. In the recent years, Broadway Market in London has experienced a bit of a renaissance and made a comeback in a big way. Every Saturday, starting around 8 or 9 am, food and produce vendors set up along Broadway road on the East side of London, in Hackney. Many people show up, hungry, ready to eat, and ready to shop for good quality produce and food products. What I really loved about the market is the friendly neighborhood feel to it. Lots of people gathered with friend to hang out, have a beer or a cup of tea, eat some delicious food, and just enjoy the great social atmosphere of the market. When I visited London, Ying and I were on a short trip with Chowzter.com, and one of the things we did while in town, was visit the market. It was my first day in London, so I was pretty excited to get out and explore the market and start to eat as much as I could. I was quite happy with the selection of international foods available at the market, ranging from Ghanaian food to Vietnamese and even Thai food. But, since I had just come from Thailand, I was actually trying to stick with more English / UK or at least more European food for the trip. The first thing I tried was some kind of a chocolate brownie cookie filled with cream. Overall, it was quite good, but I’m just not a huge fan of sweets. I’m a huge fan of smoked salmon, so when I noticed the stall selling smoked Atlantic salmon, that was immediately on my food radar. They were just serving a slab of smoked salmon on a piece of bread along with a garnish of cream cheese and piece of dill. The combo was incredibly good, the smoked salmon was marvelous. It had been a long time since I had eaten smoked salmon, so I was pretty happy, and it was very tasty. A Scotch egg is something I’ve wanted to eat for a long time, but I had never had the chance. So walking around Broadway Market, I noticed the Scotch eggs, and could not resist. She had a number of different version, but the one that caught my eye the most was the haggis Scotch egg, which was basically a hard boiled egg, covered in haggis sausage, lightly breaded, then deep fried. When I ordered it, she sliced it in half, gave it a pinch of salt, and handed it to me. It was an awesome protein ball, egg, covered in haggis meat, and I loved every bite of it. To get some more meat, I decided to get a roast piri piri chicken at the end. It wasn’t the best chicken I’ve had, perhaps it was a little bland, but it did taste good, and it was pretty cheap for a big amount of chicken. Finally to round out my eating food trip to Broadway Market, I got a couple aubergine rolls, which were eggplant stuffed with feta cheese and a few herbs and spices. They were very tasty, and a great way to end the day at the market in London.

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.

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.

Get all the details for this Thai fried rice recipe (khao pad goong ข้าวผัดกุ้ง) here: http://wp.me/p4a4F7-2kr Thai fried rice is a very typical street food dish in Thailand and you'll find it at any restaurant you go to. It's quite easy to make, and it's usually pretty tasty as well. You can order Thai fried rice with any kind of meat you want, but probably the most popular version is with shrimp, which we will be making in this recipe right here. When you make fried rice, if you don't have all the ingredients mentioned in this video, you can alternatively just find whatever you have in your fridge and use that. I've made fried rice with all sorts of ingredients, like leftover grilled chicken or steak, and it turns out extremely delicious. So don't be too concerned about ingredients you have, but if you do happen to have fresh shrimp, it does taste amazing. Like with many stir fried dishes, the most important thing is to first prepare all of your ingredients. Peel the shrimp, chop up the onion, garlic, Chinese broccoli, or whatever other vegetables you're using, before you get started. For the rice, it's actually best to use day-old rice, as it has sort of dried out. However, if you only have fresh rice which has just been cooked, the best thing to do is put it in a bowl, and let it air dry for a while until it's completely cooled. If you fry fresh rice directly from the hot pot when it's still moist, it's much easier for the rice to stick to the pan - so that's why it's best to use cooled or day-old rice. In this Thai fried rice video, I'll also be preparing prik nam pla (พริกน้ำปลา), which is the famous Thai condiment of chilies mixed with fish sauce. You'll find this condiment at nearly every Thai street food restaurant, and it's an absolute must when it comes to Thai fried rice. That's what makes it uniquely Thai. Here are the ingredients you'll need to cook this Thai fried rice recipe: Fried Rice with Shrimp (Khao Pad Goong ข้าวผัดกุ้ง) 1.5 cups of cooked rice cooled (or day old rice works well too) - Or just estimate about 1 normal bowl full About 5 - 10 shrimp, head peeled, but tail on ¼ of a big white onion (or ½ of a very small white onion, like I used) 1 leaf of Chinese broccoli (or any crisp green leafy vegetable) 2 cloves garlic 1 egg ½ tablespoon soy sauce ½ tablespoon oyster sauce Pinch of sugar (optional) 1 tablespoon of oil for frying Prik Nam Pla (Chilies in Fish Sauce พริกน้ำปลา) 5 Thai chilies 3 tablespoons of fish sauce 1/2 of a lime Full Thai fried rice recipe (khao pad goong ข้าวผัดกุ้ง) here: http://wp.me/p4a4F7-2kr More authentic Thai recipes: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/thai-recipes/ Music in this video courtesy of Audio Network.

We only had one full day in Islamabad, and we decided to make the most of it by going to a few of the top street food stall and restaurants that I wanted to check out. It turned out to be an amazing day of Pakistan food in Islamabad! Islamabad Serena Hotel - First of all, we were hosted at Islamabad Serena Hotel, an amazing hotel in Islamabad. The rooms were great, it’s a huge hotel, and the breakfast buffet was extensive and very good. We woke up in the morning and headed straight for breakfast. Majeed Huts (https://goo.gl/maps/2XyimxWyBcH2) - After reading about Majeed Huts in Roads and Kingdoms years ago, I knew it was a place I wanted to go. We went straight for Majeed Huts, which is a local Pakistani food dhaba, hole in the wall restaurant, on a university campus. Along with a multitude of Pakistani curries and dishes, one of their signature dishes is their “crisis” omelet, a combination of all the leftovers, mixed up, and filled into an oily omelet. It will solve any crisis, it’s that good. The rest of the food was equally as impressive, and I loved the atmosphere. Majeed Huts dhaba in Islamabad is one of my personal favorite restaurants from my entire trip to Pakistan. Total price - 1,900 PKR ($14.21) for everything The Monal - When we were in Islamabad we had to run a few errands in the afternoon, and things go late, so we didn’t make it up to Monal until dusk. Anyway, it was still a great view. They have a famous restaurant, but we only went for the view. Afghani Kabab House - For dinner number 1, Ali and I went to Afghani Kabab House, a local favorite serving Afghani kebabs grilled up in a cloud of smoke. While there, we met a group of guys who watch our videos, and they invited us to eat with them. The kebabs are amazing, and I also really enjoyed the Kabuli pulao. Again, another street food stall in Islamabad that you can’t miss, it’s amazing. Dawat Restaurant - Finally, Joel and I were invited to Dawat Restaurant, the Pakistani food restaurant at Islamabad Serena Hotel for second dinner. It was a nice restaurant, and really good, really tender meat. The biryani in particular stood out to me, as did the shrimp pakoras. Again, this was my only full day in Islamabad, but it was an amazing day!

For more details check out The Hungry Tourist: ►Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/the.hungry.tourist/ ►Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thehungrytourist/ Ramen Tour of Ginza, Tokyo - 3 unique bowls of ramen #1 Ramen Rule - Taste the broth first, after that, there are no other main rules to eating ramen, just slurp and enjoy. Ginza Kagari - The first Japanese ramen restaurant we went to is a very well known place that serves chicken ramen, called Ginza Kagari. We waited in line for about 30 minutes before getting in. The broth was thick and rich, and overall a very good bowl. Price - 1,050 JPY ($9.23) Kazami - This was one of my favorites of the day, a thick unique sake ramen. One of the interesting things about ramen in Japan is that it’s a relatively recent addition to Japanese food, and so there are less “rules” meaning chefs can experiment and try unique versions of ramen. This sake ramen was delicious. Price - 980 JPY ($8.62) Shichisai - Finally for our last bowl of ramen on this ramen food tour, we ate at a place called Shichisai, known for serving hand-made noodles right in front of you. The noodles were the best of the tour for sure. Price - 970 JPY ($8.53) If I could have the noodles from Shichisai and the sake broth from Kazami, that would be perfect!

The last time we visited Hua Hin, Thailand, I had no intention to eat a lobster. But then it happened, and I couldn't resist. Click here for the details - http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2013/08/lung-ja-seafood-lobster-hua-hin-night-market/ There's a street in Hua Hin, that at night, turns into a night market. There are all sorts of the usual vendors that sell t-shirts and jewelry, and little snacks to nibble on.... and then, there are the epic seafood vendor that try to lure you in for a lobster, monstrous prawns, fish, and everything else delicious from the sea. So with no intention of actually eating a lobster on this fine evening in Hua Hin, we got sucked and I felt the irresistible pull to order a monstrous 1.1 kg lobster - but I wasn't complaining! Has that ever happened to you? Anyway, we sat down at Lung Ja Seafood Restaurant (ร้านลุงจ่า), a restaurant I would recommend as one of the top restaurants in Hua Hin. It's located right along the street within the Hua Hin night market, and they have a nice selection of seafood and some very nice staff as well. We chose our lobster with precision and then it to the table to wait as they prepared it. The lobster is first blanched before being tossed on the grill. The chef had informed us that that is the way to cook it for maximum flavor and to ensure the lobster isn't rubbery, but rather soft and tender and juicy. Along with out monster 1.1 kg lobster in Hua Hin, Lung Ja Seafood Restaurant (ร้านลุงจ่า) also served an award winning plate of fried morning glory vegetable and a wonderful plate of khao pad boo (crab fried rice). Both of the sides dishes were excellent, but they were dwarfed by my anticipation of the lobster. The lobster arrived on a massive plate, covered in a number of different sauces. Order again, and I would have gotten it with the sauces on the side, to be able to really taste the unique flavor the the lobster, but that being said, the sauces were pretty good and didn't overpower the meaty flesh. Here's the link so you can eat here too: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2013/08/lung-ja-seafood-lobster-hua-hin-night-market/ Lung Ja Seafood (ร้านลุงจ่า) Address: 103/4-5 Hua Hin Night Market Soi.

Allauddin's Chicken Briyani in Singapore is fragrant and delicious! ►SINGAPORE FOOD GUIDE: http://migrationology.com/2016/01/singapore-food/ ►SINGAPORE TRAVEL GUIDE: http://migrationology.com/travel-guides/singapore/ If you’re looking for excellent Indian hawker food in Singapore, one of the best places to go is Tekka Centre, located in Little India. You’ll find a tempting variety of different Indian food stalls to choose from, many of them serving south Indian dishes. You can get paratha, banana leaf rice and curry, and what I chose to eat was chicken biryani from a famous stall called Allauddin’s. But before beginning with my chicken biryani, I first had an onion paratha, a greasy and crispy pieces of fried bread filled with onions and served with a side of curry sauce. It was pretty good. But nothing compared to my plate of chicken biryani. The rice was fluffy and fragrant, and not too dry, but had some nice moisture to it. The chicken was incredible - it was soft, yet not mushy at all, but remained a fantastic silky texture.

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!

Download your copy of my Thai street food guide right here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/eating-thai-food-guide/ (click link) - "A sight-seeing guide for your mouth," - Keith Hautala Thai cuisine includes some of the most diverse culinary flavors in the world - each meal must contain a wide variety of dishes that incorporate all the taste buds. Thai food not only includes tastes like spicy and sour and sweet but also combines a mixture of stir fried, steamed, boiled, deep fried and lots of soups. Thai tom yum goong (ต้มยำกุ้ง) is one of the most popular and widely available soups in Thai cuisine. It's a soup that's spiced with chilies, flavored with shrimp or another meat, and made sour with lime juice. Each bite of Thai tom yum is like a burst of invigorating flavor. In this HD video recipe today, we'll be going over the ingredients and I'll show you exactly how to make some of the best Thai soup ever! Making Thai soups is not extremely complicated, but you just have to remember that you have to cook your food to your exact taste - there's no precise measuring when it comes to cooking Thai food - it's really up to you and your tongue. Be sure to taste quite frequently when you cook this soup! It should be slightly salty, spicy to your taste and quite sour. So here is my mother in law's home cooked recipe for the ultimate Thai tom yum goong. วิธีทำต้มยำกุ้ง First here are the ingredients you'll need: 1.5 liters of water 1 thumb size chunk of galangal 8 kaffir lime leaves 4 stalks of lemongrass 8 cloves of garlic 2 sweet white onions 3 red tomatoes 1/4 kilo of raw shrimp red or green chillies handful bunch of cilantro 2 - 3 handfuls of mushrooms 4 - 5 limes 2 tablespoons of Thai chili paste (prik pao) 1 teaspoon of salt 2 tablespoons of sugar 2 tablespoons of fish sauce Like I mentioned above, Thai food is all about the way it tastes for yourself. This list of ingredients is just a guide and you should take it and adapt it to your own tastes. If you don't think it's salty enough, add more fish sauce or salt or if it's not sour enough add more lime juice! Thai soup should be eaten with a meal that includes a number of other Thai dishes as well as bowls of rice. Instead of scooping the soup into individual bowls for eaters, the Thai way to eat is to just have a single communal bowl of soup and all eaters dip their spoon into the soup to enjoy it together! Please continue to watch this video for all the vital recipe information on the steps to make your delicious tom yum goong (ต้มยำกุ้ง)! Thank you for watching and please leave a comment below to let me know how your soup was!

Read the full blog post about Restaurant Tapenade here: http://migrationology.com/2015/09/restaurant-tapenade-discovery-primea-makati/ Anton’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/antondiaz 0:26 Taipei to Manila - On Day 1 of our short trip to Manila, we took a flight from Taipei to Manila and arrived at night. We were already scheduled to stay at Discovery Primea Hotel, which was arranged by my friend Anton. Flight went well, we got our baggage, and then once we arrived in Manila,someone from the hotel was there to greet us and picked us up. 1:26 Discovery Primea Hotel - Discovery Primea is a hotel in the Makati area, and it’s a very nice and new hotel. They gave us a huge room. 3:53 Breakfast - We woke up the next morning, hungry and ready for breakfast. It wasn’t a buffet breakfast, but they had a salad bar and a menu that you could order from. I went with the beef wagyu tapa, a bed of rice topped with eggs and steak. 6:54 Restaurant Tapenade - After getting some work done, we went to meet the management of the hotel for lunch at Restaurant Tapenade, the signature restaurant at Discovery Primea, that serves Mediterranean food. The food was all excellent, but I especially enjoyed the stone baked feta cheese dish, and the angus rib eye steak. It was amazing. Read the full blog post: http://migrationology.com/2015/09/restaurant-tapenade-discovery-primea-makati/ 11:56 Met up with Anton from http://www.ourawesomeplanet.com/ - Anton has been a friend of mine for a long time, and he’s the one who invited us to Manial to speak at a conference. But in the afternoon we just met up with a class he was teaching. 12:50 Abe Restaurant - After the class we went to Abe Restaurant with Anton, known as one of the top indoor Filipino restaurants in Manila. The food, all of which Anton ordered, was all delicious. The lamb adobo was excellent, and I especially enjoyed the sinigang made with ripe guava and bangus fish. Food was really good, highly recommended. Disclosure: We were invited to stay at Discovery Primea, 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.

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! Karashibi Miso Ramen Kikanbo 2 Chome-10-10 Kajicho, Chiyoda, Tokyo 101-0044, Japan Price - 1500 JPY ($13.60) - Music in this video: Intense Thrill 5 - https://goo.gl/HwVjdo MY CAMERA GEAR: 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!

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!

Subscribe for more videos► http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe T-shirts for sale here► https://migrationology.com/store/ There aren’t too many open air street flea markets in Tokyo anymore, but Ameya-Yokochō located in Ueno district, is one of the few remaining. It’s a market where you’ll find everything and anything - from a fresh wet market to shoes and cosmetics, all open air, and under the Ueno railroad tracks. It also happens to be a great place to sample some budget Japanese street food in Tokyo. Here’s what I ate on this tour of Ameya-Yokochō Market: Chirashi don - sashimi rice bowl, quality is not the best, but it is quite budget Total price - 1,750 JPY ($15.92) for 2 Oyama Meat Pie - this is a little gem, it’s like a little deep fried meat patty - so greasy and so good. Price - 200 JPY ($1.82) Izakaya Hamachan - Throughout the market you’ll find plenty of little izakaya’s, Japanese pubs, where you can grab a drink and some food. They are great places to hang out when you’re exploring the food at the market. Total price - 2,743 JPY ($24.96) Taiyaki and ice cream - These are two of the most popular Japanese street food sweet snacks. The taiyaki wasn’t the best I’ve had, but the ice cream was quite nice. Price - 450 JPY ($4.09) Jumbo Kebab - Believe it or not, doner kebabs are actually one of the most popular street foods to eat at Ameya-Yokochō Market, and I saw mostly Japanese people eating doner kebabs. I ordered the super spicy hot sauce with my doner, and it was just the perfect spicy ending to this street food tour!

►Read 23 Things to do in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam: http://migrationology.com/2015/06/things-to-do-in-saigon-ho-chi-minh-city/ ►FREE eBook: http://migrationology.com/saigon-ebook/ When I was in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), along with eating as much Vietnamese food as I could, one of my goals was to film a travel video about some of the best things to do in Saigon. After putting together a complete list, it turned out to be 23, and I hope this list of attractions will help and inspire you to visit Vietnam’s largest and most exciting city. 1. Binh Tay Market - Binh Tay Market is one of the largest wholesale distribution markets, and a perfect place to go if you’re looking to go shopping in Ho Chi Minh City. 2. Thien Hau Temple (Pagoda) - Located in Chinatown, in District 5, the temple is dedicated to Thien Hau and I really loved the sculptures and the elaborate design of the temple. 3. Museum of Ho Chi Minh City - This museum offers a glimpse into the history and development of the city and Vietnam. 4. Bitexco Financial Tower - This is the tallest building in Saigon, and you can either go to the Skydeck or a cafe at the top for a view of the city. 5. Independence Palace (Reunification Palace) - Probably one of the most well known tourism things to do in Saigon is to visit the Independence Palace, the the former home of the president of South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. 6. Saigon Cathedral of Notre Dame - With the French influence in Vietnam, the Notre Dame cathedral is a beautiful Catholic church. Attend a service or just visit. 7. Central Post Office - Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh City is an attraction mainly for its design and architecture. It’s a beautiful building. 8. War Remnants Museum - Although this is not one of the happiest attractions in Saigon, it’s a place to remember and honor the horrible events that are a result of a war. 9. Opera House - Right in Dong Khoi area, and there are still opera shows available. 10. Dong Khoi Street - This is the height of high end shopping in Saigon. 11. Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens - The zoo itself is not too great, but the beauty of the Saigon zoo is the botanical gardens, and the lush gardens, and taking a break from the city. 12. FITO Museum (Museum of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine) - I was quite impressed by the Vietnamese medicine private museum - very interactive and educational. 13. San Art Laboratory – If you love modern art, the San Art Laboratory is a great place to see and visit in Saigon. 14. Turtle Lake at Night - If you’re looking for some things to do at night in Saigon, head to Turtle Lake to chill out, relax, hang out with friends, and eat snacks. 15. Ben Thanh Market - One of the most famous things to do in Saigon District 1 is visit the Ben Thanh Market, one of the major central landmarks of the city. 16. Phu My Hung and Starlight Bridge - Located outside of central Ho Chi Minh City, Phu My Hung is a modern development, and a great place to walk around. 17. Water Puppet Show - Though originally from the north of Vietnam, water puppet shows are popular also in Saigon. I went to the Golden Dragon Water Puppet theater. 18. Museum of Vietnamese History - Probably one of the most extensive and important museum showing the history of Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City. 19. Rooftop Bar - Seeing Saigon from above offers a great perspective. 20. Fine Arts Museum - This was my favorite of all the museums in Saigon. The museum is housed in a well preserved building, and the art is amazing - located right in District 1 across the roundabout from Ben Thanh Market. 21. Jade Emperor Pagoda - Dedicated to the Jade Emperor, the pagoda has a real ancient feel to it, and it’s worth seeing when you visit. 22. Local Wet Market - One of my favorite things to do is visit a local fresh wet market, which you’ll find all over the city. The ingredients, food, and culture, all stand out at fresh markets. 23. Vietnamese Street Food - By my ultimate favorite activity in Saigon is eating street food, and there are an abundance of delicious Vietnamese street foods to sample. Thank you for watching this video about the top 23 things to do in Saigon, Vietnam. I hope it has given you some great ideas to help you plan your visit. ********************************************************************* Music in this video is from Audio Network Filmed and created by Mark Wiens and Ying Wiens: http://migrationology.com/blog & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/ & http://www.travelbyying.com/ Make a donation: https://www.patreon.com/markwiens Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Twitter: https://twitter.com/migrationology SNAPCHAT: migrationology ►Get your FREE Saigon eBook: http://migrationology.com/saigon-ebook/

Can Ramon and I finish the GIANT Lobster Tom Yum food challenge!? ►Check out Ramon’s Channel: https://bit.ly/2K5SBvi ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Talad Rot Fai Ratchada (ตลาดรถไฟรัชดา) - Also known as the train market, is one of the most popular night markets in Bangkok. It’s especially popular on the weekend when a younger crowd flocks to the market to eat the latest Thai street food trends, and hang out with friends. The train market has in recent months become famous for its giant food - you’ll find a number of giant Thai dishes to try like egg noodles, pork bone soup, and now the massive lobster tom yum - possibly the world’s biggest bowl of tom yum? Diaw Goong Rot Fai Restaurant (เตี๋ยวกุ้งรถไฟ) - This is the name of the restaurant, and when we ordered they started preparing the lobster. Giant Lobster Tom Yum (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวต้มยำโครตกุ้งมังกรยักษ์) - They serve it in a basin, like a mini bathtub, not even a bowl. And it’s HUGE. They layer in the fish, squid, mussels, shrimp, and finally a giant lobster goes on top, followed by all the tom yum soup broth. Honestly, the seafood isn’t the freshest or best quality, but you don’t really go to eat a bathtub of seafood for the quality - you go for the insaneness of it. Price - 2,800 THB ($89.27) Here are the other Thai street foods we tried on this tour: Seafood griddle cakes (ขนมครกทะเล) Price - 60 THB ($1.91) Green mango crab egg salad (ยำมะม่วงไข่ปูทะเล) Price - 150 THB ($4.78) Watermelon shake (แตงโมปั่น) Price - 60 THB ($1.91) Thanks again to Ramon for joining me on this Thai street food lobster tom yum food challenge!

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.

Wattana Panich (วัฒนาพานิช-ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อ) is one of the most famous restaurants for Thai beef noodles in Bangkok. More details here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/09/thai-beef-noodles-wattana-panich-ekkamai/ A few years ago I made a video about Thai beef noodles, at a little restaurant in the Udom Suk area of Bangkok. The beef noodles there were extremely good, but someone commented saying I needed to try the beef noodles on Ekkamai Soi 18. I put it on my list, but just didn’t have the time to go there for a long time. But finally, after a long wait, I finally made my way to the famous Wattana Panich (วัฒนาพานิช-ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อ) restaurant to taste the beef noodles - and I was excited. I was even more thrilled when we arrived, and I peered into the most beautiful cauldron of slow simmering beef, like a jacuzzi of meat, that greeted me as I entered. Their pan of slow bubbling beef was one of the most amazing food things I had seen in a very long time, and I could hardly wait to order a bowl of beef noodles (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อเปื่อยเส้นเล็ก). But along with beef, Wattana Panich (วัฒนาพานิช-ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อ) also is famous for their braised goat noodles - so any chance I get to order goat, I can’t resist. The kuay teow neua (beef noodles) came out first, and I ordered the special size, meaning it was a little bigger, and with a little more beef than the normal bowl. For the noodles I ordered sen lek, the medium sized rice noodles, and my usual preferred choice when it comes to noodles. The noodles were swimming in that beautiful broth, and then covered in a good spoonful of the amazing tender cubes of beef, and finally garnished with a few sprigs of cilantro (coriander). I tasted the beef noodles first, and the broth was a beautiful concoction of beef braised with a hint of spices like star anise and cinnamon. The beef was so tender and had so much beefy flavor to it. I loved it plain, but it even got better when I added some extra chili flakes and a scoop of vinegar to sour things up. It was one of the best bowls of beef noodles (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อเปื่อยเส้นเล็ก) I’ve had in a long time in Bangkok. And then the goat noodles (kuay teow pae sen lek ก๋วยเตี๋ยวแพะเส้นเล็ก) emerged from the kitchen, the goat is cooked behind the scenes, not visible in the front part of the kitchen. It came in a smaller bowl, but the chunks of goat on the top of the bowl were so huge, I could hardly even see the noodles at the bottom. The goat was braised similar to the beef, I think. It was in a similar blend of Chinese spices, but included even more Chinese herbal medicine spices like red goji berries and astragalus root. The broth was much thicker than the beef noodles, so it was more of a stew than a soup, and that was fine by me. The goat meat was unbelievably tender, so soft that it completely melted in my mouth and I barely had to chew. The broth was calm and soothing, and extremely meaty tasting. If you love Thai beef noodles or goat noodles, when you’re in Bangkok, you need to make it a mission to visit Wattana Panich (วัฒนาพานิช-ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อ). Both dishes were amazing and so meaty. I loved it. Wattana Panich (วัฒนาพานิช-ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อ) Address: 336-338 Ekkamai Soi 18, Thanon Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand Phone number: 02-391 7264, 02-392 Open hours: 10 am - 8:30 pm daily How to get there: The restaurant is located in the Ekkamai area of Bangkok, on Ekkamai Soi 18. You can take the BTS Skytrain to Ekkamai, and from there, it’s easiest to jump in a taxi, bus, or motorbike to Soi 18. You could walk, but it’s a bit far, maybe 2 - 3 kilometers. Prices: 80 - 100 THB for beef noodles, 200 THB for goat noodles ที่อยู่ 336-338 ซอยเอกมัย 18 ถ.สุขุมวิท 63 (ซอยเอกมัย 18) คลองเตยเหนือ กรุงเทพ โทร. 02-391 7264, 02-392 เปิดบริการทุกวัน 10:00 - 20:30 The music in this video is all from AudioNetwork.com Restaurant details here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/09/thai-beef-noodles-wattana-panich-ekkamai/ I’m Mark Wiens, an eater at: http://migrationology.com/blog & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/blog/ Support me (make a donation): http://migrationology.com/donate/ Premium guides: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/guides/ Don’t forget to subscibe for more food adventures: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=migrationology Thank you for watching!

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 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.

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!

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.

►Check out my Taipei Travel Guide for Food Lovers: https://goo.gl/PbAuzQ ►Subscribe to my videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe This is the vlog of Day 1 of our Taiwan trip (stay tuned for all 12 days of vlogs). We woke up early in the morning in Bangkok and headed to Don Muaeng Airport. We checked into our flight via Tiger Air that offers a directly flight at a pretty good rate from Bangkok to Taipei. Everything went smoothly and our flight arrived on time. They didn’t serve any food on our airplane, but luckily as I was doing some work, my wife Ying went and bought some Subway for the airplane ride. So while I didn’t have airplane food this time, I did have Subway on an airplane. We landed in Taipei, Taiwan, my first time to ever visit Taiwan in the early afternoon, and I had little clue how we were going to get from the airport to the center of Taipei and then on to our hotel. We ended up walking down stairs where we caught a shuttle bus from Taoyuan International Airport for 30 TWD to the Taoyuan train station in order to connect with the Taiwan high speed rail that would take us into the center of Taipei. From Taoyuan railway station we took the high speed rail which cost 165 TWD and in about 20 minutes we arrived at Taipei Main station, which is the major hub of transportation in the center of Taipei. From there we caught the local Metro to Ximen station, where our hotel was booked. After wandering around for a little while and getting a bit lost, we finally arrived into our hotel, called Go Sleep Hotel and the Xining branch, located right within the busy shopping and cultural district of Ximending in Taipei. We arrive to the hotel at about 6 pm almost and we were all very hungry and wanted to have our first meal in Taipei… but I had no idea what we were going to eat. After walking around Ximending for a few minutes we sat down at the nearest restaurant we could find that was serving local Taiwanese food. Although I didn’t really know what we were ordering, the owner of the restaurant was very nice and after pointing to a few dishes, she kindly brought them to our table. Our first meal in Taipei, Taiwan was a success. From there we just walked around Ximending for a while, enjoying the atmosphere and sampling a few snacks along the way. There was so much food in this area, that is was crazy, so much to eat! Thank you for watching this Taipei travel guide video vlog from Bangkok to Taipei.

Because it’s next to a major university, it attracts quite a crowd of hungry students everyday, along with anyone else passing by and ready to eat a delicious Filipino food meal and some of the best banana egg rolls (turon) you’ll ever try. Mang Tootz Food House is a carinderia, a local style eatery, and to eat you go up to the front of the restaurant and pick and choose the different dishes you want to try. I got a plate of Bicol express, inihaw na liempo, sisig, chicken kebab, ginataang langka, and finally, their banana rhuma, which is what they call their version of banana egg rolls, or banana lumpia, or turon. Out of the Filipino dishes I ordered, the Bicol express, a Filipino stew of pork with coconut milk and chilies, and the ginataang langka, a jackfruit stew with coconut milk, were my favorite dishes of the meal. The chicken kebab wasn’t my favorite dish as it was covered in a mayonnaise tasting sauce. Banana-rhuma (turon) - Ok finally, when you eat at Mang Tootz Food House, the one sure thing you have to order is their banana rhuma. These little banana egg rolls are amazing, and you’ll see them at the front of the restaurant being made and deep friend. Many people come by in the afternoon and order only the banana egg rolls, just as a snack to go. They take a lumpia wrapper, place a piece of banana on the inside, wrap it up, and deep fry it in a wok to a crispy golden crunch. The banana egg rolls are then stir fried with a caramel like mixture,and sprinkled with sesame seeds. I’m not a big sweets lover, but when Filipino turon are hot and fresh, they are truly amazing, and these were the best I’ve ever tried.

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!)

As you may know by now, I’m more than a little obsessed with tempoyak. Restoran Aroma Kampung - We started the morning with breakfast at Restoran Aroma Kampung known for their freshwater catfish curry with tempoyak. We also ordered pretty much all the other dishes they offered, and the food was spectacular. Total price - 40 MYR ($9.81) Warisan Pahlawan Resort - But the real highlight of Malay food for the day was going to Warisan Pahlawan Resort where the Aunty is known as one of the best local food cooks in Kuala Berang. Again, she prepared for us local Malaysian food from Kuala Berang, nearly everything dish including huge amounts of fermented durian paste (tempoyak). It was a Malaysian meal of my dreams. She also wanted to cook for us a dish of bilimbi fruit, simmered with coconut milk, which was incredible. This home-cooked village meal in Terengganu was one of the best meals of this trip to Malaysia. I loved the herbs, the Vietnamese coriander, the torch ginger, and of course, the fermented durian paste. Thank you for watching this Malaysian food video in Terengganu.

►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Congratulations to Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ) who recently was awarded a Michelin Star! Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ) is no doubt one of the most legendary Thai street food restaurants in Bangkok - some people are loyal fans, others say that it’s overpriced. It’s a Thai restaurants in Bangkok that I had been wanting to eat at for a long time, but never got around to it - partly because it is so expensive. So finally one day for lunch, Ying and I drove over to central Bangkok to try Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ) for the first time. But really quickly, about the name.... In Thai, Jay (เจ๊) means a Chinese Aunty and Fai (ไฝ) means a mole, yes a mole. What I can tell you first about the restaurant is that the owner is absolutely awesome. She wears ski goggles and a snow cap while she’s cooking, and she cooks over huge fire charcoal, fanning the flame as she expertly cooks. She’s also quite a character, and she loves to chat - so while I was filming she shared all about herself, and how her method of cooking her legendary Thai crab omelet ensures that it doesn’t soak up very much oil. It’s indeed the most amazing omelet you might ever see in your life. Crab omelet (ไข่เจียวปู) - You can either order the 800 THB or the 1000 THB crab omelet, I went with the 1000 THB. It’s huge, but only uses 2 eggs, but it’s packed with shell less crab nuggets. The omelet is cooked burrito style, and it’s massive. It’s a must order when you eat at Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ). Drunken noodles (เส้นใหญ่ผัดขี้เมาทะเล) - Her version of Thai drunken noodles (pad kee mao sen ya) is the dish I would come back for over and over again. Again, it’s not cheap, but the quality of seafood and the seasoning that she uses is superb. The balance of flavor will blow your mind - it’s really the best plate of Thai drunken noodles I’ve had in Bangkok. Tom yum goong (ต้มยำกุ้ง) - For our final dish we tried Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ) tom yum goong. Again, massive prawns and seafood were used, and she cooked it over charcoal. It was awesomely delicious, sour, and flavorful. Conclusion: Eating at Thai street food restaurants like this can be all about expectations. You have to go in knowing the prices are very high and you’re going to spend way more money than going to any other corner Thai street food restaurant. That being said, it’s a one-of-a-kind historical culinary legend of a restaurant in Bangkok. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience eat at Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ), and it was an honor to stand there and talk with Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ), and then eat her cooking. Total price - 2,370 THB ($72.32) Jay Fai (ร้านเจ๊ไฝ) Address: 327 Thanon Maha Chai, Samran Rat, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok 10200, Thailand Open hours: 1:30 pm – 1:30 am Phone: 02-2339384 ที่อยู่ 327 ถนน มหาไชย แขวงสำราญราษฎร์ เขตพระนคร กรุงเทพฯ 10200 โทร. 02-2339384 เปิดบริการ 13.30-01.30 น.

►More about how to cook a pig in an imu: http://migrationology.com/2015/05/polynesian-cultural-center-luau/ When I was in Hawaii, my wife and I were invited to go to the Polynesian Cultural Center to attend the center and to learn about how to cook a pig in an imu - a traditional style of underground oven cooking used in many parts of Polynesia. The Polynesian Cultural Center is an cultural park located on the north shore of the island of Oahu, Hawaii, that shows and preserves the cultures of the major island of Polynesia. They represent Hawaii, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Tahiti, and New Zealand. For each of the island nations, they’ve set up a traditional style village and displays about lifestyle, tradition, and food, of each island. When you enter the center, you can walk around to the different villages, and then go to see a series of different shows and cultural performances at each of the island villages. But along with touring the center and learning more about the islands of Polynesia, another draw to the Polynesian Cultural Center is the luau, which is a big Hawaiian feast. What I was most interested in learning about was the imu, a traditional Hawaiians style underground hot rock oven used to cook. In Hawaii it’s called an imu, but they have very similar forms of cooking throughout Polynesia that have a different name, but almost the same style of cooking. In order to cook using a Hawaiian imu, they first started with a pile of river rocks. The rocks were sitting on a bed of hard ironwood. The wood was burned, and the rocks sitting on top, were heated in the hot flaming wood for about 2 - 3 hours. During this time, we walked around the Polynesian Cultural Center and just enjoyed the beautiful nature and manicured gardens. After the rocks for the imu were heated, they removed all the burning wood - the wood was used only to heat the rocks - and spread out the rocks. David, who was teaching me about how to set up an imu, explained that the one we were using was sort of a Samoan style, because it was mostly above ground, as opposed to being dug into the ground too deep. After the hot rocks were spread out, they then added a layer of banana stalk to the top of the hot rocks, then on went an entire pig - it was a small pig, but a tasty pig. I could immediately hear the hiss of the meat sizzling on the hot rocks. After the pig, then on went about 20 layers of banana leaves, which were stacked on top of the pig in an effort to keep all the steam and smoke in and cook the pig. An imu is a slow method of cooking, and so after the imu was prepared, it took about 5 hours to cook, and during that time again, we walked around the center and enjoyed the cultural displays and performances. In the late afternoon, when it was time for the official Polynesian Cultural Center luau, we had access to the stage and were there to see them take the pig out of the imu. The pig cooked in an underground Hawaiian oven, after being cooked, is called kalua pig and is one of the most famous Hawaiian food. The rest of the food at the Polynesian Cultural Center was alright, but nothing compared to the pig cooked in the imu. I was lucky enough to get the pig cheek, which was incredibly flavorful, juicy and fatty. The other parts of the meat were fall apart tender and had a wonderful smoky flavor. *During the making of this video, I received the food and entrance to the Polynesian Cultural Center for free, but I did not get paid to make this video or write this blog posts.

At this street food stall in Kolkata, you'll find an amazing mango lassi, one of the ultimate mango smoothies. If you're ever visited India or places around India you've undoubtedly come across a beverage known as a lassi. It's the Indian version of yoghurt, a thick creamy dairy product that rich and creamy and delicious. In Kolkata and in other parts of India you can get a lassi all over the place, but in Kolkata is where I had the best mango lassi I've ever had. The stall is on a small street just parallel to the famous Deckers street food lane, and they will whip up a concoction that you'll surely love. An Indian mango lassi is basically just a yoghurt smoothie that whipped up until it's a smooth yogurt milkshake. When you approach you'll find a great quantity of fruit standing up in sculptures and inviting you in. I took a seat on a plastic stool and waiting as my treat finished blending up. After filling my cup until it was overflowing, the vendor then added a few nuts and slice of something that tasted like cheese to the top to give it a finishing touch. This mango lassi was definitely one of the best ones I've ever had, it was creamy, and milky with an incredible flavor or mango. The added nuts and the salty cheese on top provided an incredible taste that contrasted the sweetness. This mango lassi is something worth traveling around the world just to eat!
