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

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

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

THE SPICIEST RAMEN in Tokyo at Karashibi Kikanbo - DEVIL LEVEL Japanese Food!
 
10:42
Subscribe for more videos► http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe T-shirts for sale here► https://migrationology.com/store/ Karashibi Miso Ramen Kikanbo is known for serving the spiciest bowl of ramen you can eat in Tokyo, Japan, and not only is it insanely spicy, you’ll also find that it’s one of the most flavorful bowls of ramen you’ll ever eat as well. 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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thai Street Food - Pla Pao (Roasted Fish) at Central World Street Food Stalls in Bangkok!
 
03:50
Check out my Thai street food guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/eating-thai-food-guide/ and also my travel and street food website here http://migrationology.com/ One of the best things about visiting Bangkok is taking advantage of the incredible array of Thai street food available. It's nearly everywhere you look and it's mostly quite sanitary, affordable, and most importantly, it's incredible delicious. There's Thai street food all over Bangkok and throughout the entire country. One of the most popular shopping areas in the city is known as Pratunam, an area that's just a short distance from Siam shopping area and just a short walk from Central World mall. Everyday, thousands of pedestrians pass this little stretch next to Central World and for that reason, there's an abundance of wonderful street food available. Starting at about 5 pm each day, there are a series of full Thai street food restaurants that set up just outside of Central World shopping mall in Bangkok. The place that I ate at in the video goes by Ratchaprasong Thai Food (ราชประสงค์ ไทยฟู้ด). They specialize in mostly Isaan cuisine from the northeaster part of the country, but they also have some other stir fried Chinese style dishes as well. But when I go, I mostly go with an intent to eat a few of the items off the grill! Plan chon pao (ปลาช่อนเผา), or roasted snake head fish, is the top reason to visit these street stalls. The grills are absolutely packed with this ugly, yet tasty creatures. To prepare them Thai style, the fish is first stuffed in the mouth with lemongrass and herbs and then rolled in a thick layer of salt. The fish is then slow roasted on open charcoal as it slow cooks. The result is a flaky fish that's a gem of Thai street food. Served with a seafood sauce, called nam jim seafood, it's amazing. The fish is flaky and remains moist and flavorful from the cooking process. I also tried their grilled chicken, known as gai yang in Thai. It was indeed flavorful, but my only complaint is that it was slightly dry. However, that's just sort of the way street food may be, some pieces of chicken might be dry and others nice and moist. Lastly, now Thai meal on the street like this would be complete without a helping of green papaya salad. I asked for it spicy, and they didn't fail to load it with spicy chillies. Made with fresh ingredients, the green papaya was crisp and mixed with a tomatoes, dry shrimp, chillies, garlic, palm sugar, fish sauce, and lime juice. It was excellent. Along with the other dishes, I also enjoyed a few plates of Thai sticky rice to bring the meal together! Sitting on the side of the busy road and with countless pedestrians that walk past every minute, Ratchaprasong Thai Food (ราชประสงค์ ไทยฟู้ด) doesn't have the greatest ambiance. But it sure is convenient and the Thai street food there is quite appetizing! Hours: 5 pm - 2 am daily Prices: 100 - 200 THB per person for a full meal, the meal we ate above came to 300 THB Address: Sidewalk outside Bangkok's Central World shopping center How To Get There: Take the BTS to Chit Lom station, walk towards Ratchaprasong road and then cross the street to Central World shopping mall. Procee to walk past the mall and on your way to Pratunam, and it would be impossible to miss these Thai street food stalls. I go to the first one. Open only after 5 pm. Thank you for watching!

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

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

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

Watch all 8 videos here: This is Day 8 of my Eastern Thailand food and travel series. Our final destination was the island of Koh Kood (เกาะกูด), and one of the best islands and most beautiful in Thailand. From the water to the beaches, to the jungle, you’ll be in awe. How to get to Koh Kood? We took the Boonsiri Ferry - 1,000 THB ($31.75) per person round-trip. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there. On this one day guide of food and travel in Koh Kood (เกาะกูด), we hired a pickup truck to drive us around (Private vehicle - 2,000 THB ($63.50) whole day) to some of the famous sites, beaches, and restaurants. It was an amazing day. The Sunshine Resort Koh Kood at Ao Phrao Beach (อ่าวพร้าว) - This is where we stayed for the first few nights in Koh Kood. A very nice relaxing quiet place. Khao Saleun (ข้าวสะลื่น) - It doesn’t really have a name, but this small rice and curry restaurant serves great food in Koh Kood. Mushroom curry (แกงเห็ดเสม็ด) Chicken curry (แกงไก่บ้าน) Total price - 100 THB ($3.17) Old Tree 1 Old Tree 2 Klong Chao Waterfall (น้ำตกคลองเจ้า) - There are a number of tropical waterfalls on Koh Kood, and we went to Klong Chao, because of its big pool of water.

Ao Yai Fisherman Village (บ้านอ่าวใหญ่) - One of the things I wanted to do most in Koh Kood was visit a fishing village to eat seafood. The village is great, and well worth checking out and exploring when you’re in Koh Kood. Chonthicha Restaurant (ร้านชลธิชา) - There are a few different seafood restaurants, but we chose this one. Squid with garlic (ปลามึกทอดกระเทียม) Murex sashimi (หอยเงาะ) Hoy pawk pad prik pao (หอยพอกผัดพริกเผา) Shrimp pineapple curry (แกงคั่วสับปะรด) Fried slipper lobster (กั้งกระดานทอดกระเทียม) Total price - 1,360 THB ($43.18) The most unique dish of the meal was Murex sashimi (หอยเงาะ), in Thai it’s called a Rambutan Shell, after the fruit.

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

Ayutthaya - Video Guide of Thailand's Ancient Capital City
 
04:06
Ayutthaya is one of the most popular places to visit near Bangkok. Read my full guide to Ayutthaya here: http://migrationology.com/2013/07/ayutthaya-tour-photos/ Visiting Ayutthaya, Thailand, is one of the best day trips to take from Bangkok. It's Thailand's ancient capital city, second after Sukhothai. The city has a very long history with many ups and downs. It was overthrown by the Burmese in the mid 1700's and many of the gems and treasures from the temples were moved the Yangon at the Shwedagon Pagoda (another very impressive site if you visit Burma). I have visited Ayutthaya a number of times while living in Thailand, but a few weeks ago I joined a small travel blogger group and we toured a few of the most important temples, and I also snuck away for some food and refreshment! The Ayutthaya historical park is the most significant section of the city, an area where there's a concentration of temples and historical sites to visit. The city in now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The first temple we stopped at was Wat Yai Chai Mongkon (วัดใหญ่่ชัยมงคล), a must visit temple in Ayutthaya. The temple is recognized by its huge chedi that leans a little to the side, sort of like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. At the site, you can then climb a flight of stairs to the middle level section that offers a nice view of the surroundings. Surrounding the temple are many statues of Buddha, most of them wrapped in orange cloth and in many symmetrical patterns. Just like Wat Pho in Bangkok, there's also a reclining Buddha, though this one made of stone and wrapped in yellow cloth instead of gold. I had visited the temple before, but had never stopped to see the palace of King U-Thong and his many roosters. After Wat Yai Chai Mongkon (วัดใหญ่่ชัยมงคล) in Ayutthaya we proceeded to Wat Phanan Choeng (วัดพนัญเชิงวรวิหาร), a temple that's famous for housing a 19 meter high golden seated Buddha. The temple is a cross between traditional Thai and Chinese beliefs so there are lots of cross similarities and the temple is very Chinese Confucian in appearance. There are many section of Wat Phanan Choeng (วัดพนัญเชิงวรวิหาร), and you can spend some time walking around each section of the temple. It's nearly always busy and bustling with people, especially on the weekends. Finally, the famous Wat Mahathat (วัดมหาธาตุ) is one of the most visited and well known temple complexes in the Ayutthaya historical park. It's the temple where the famous head of Buddha wrapped within the banyan tree is - that's always a favorite place for everyone to take pictures! The rest of the temple is not in that great of condition, but it's mostly in ruins. The temple is still nice to walk around for a few minutes. Ayutthaya is hot, and when you are walking around the temples, you're going to sweat for sure! So be prepared for the sun and always remember to drink plenty of water. I also like to stock up on hydration by having a fresh coconut to drink the water. Finally, whenever you visit any city in Thailand it's important to eat and to bring back some of the local speciality snacks. In Ayutthaya there's nothing more famous than a sweet called roti sai mai (โรตีสายไหม), and if you don't eat this, many Thais will say you didn't even go to Ayutthaya. It's basically a thin crepe pancake that's combined with cotton candy like sugar, wrapped into a little taco and consumed. It is very sweet and full of sugar, but it is the taste of Ayutthaya and should be sampled! Have a great trip visiting the ancient capital city of Thailand!

Bad Food in Koh Samui
 
10:21
For our first few nights in Koh Samui we stayed at Santiburi Beach Resort: http://migrationology.com/2015/07/santiburi-beach-resort-koh-samui/ On Day 3 in Koh Samui, it was time to check out of Santiburi Beach Resort - as much as I wanted to stay for a week at the resort and relax and enjoy the beach, it was time to move on to Lamai beach. But before catching our truck to Lamai, we decided to have a quick lunch at a restaurant to eat a dish called khanom jeen, and the southern Thai style of it (ขนมจีนใต้). We went to a local restaurant recommended by some of the staff at our hotel, who said they served good Koh Samui style khanom jeen. The restaurant was very small, just a little roofed covering in front of someone's home. Ying ordered a bowl of khanon jeen nam ya kati (ขนมจีนน้ำยากะทิ), rice noodles with fish coconut curry over it, and I ordered After lunch we jumped in the back of a rot songthaew and drove from Mae Nam beach (าดแม่น้ำ) on Koh Samui’s northern coast to the eastern coast and a beach called Lamai - also a very popular tourist beach. We thought we were going to be able to take a direct truck there, but it dropped us off on the side of the road near Chaweng, and we had to wait for another truck to take us on to Lamai - luckily it didn’t take long for it to arrive. We arrived right into the town of Lamai, and I had pre-booked a hotel called Lazy Days Samui Beach Resort, which was a little walk from the center of town down to the next beach. We checked into our hotel and after hanging out for a while we walked around. The beach right outside our hotel was not amazing, not the best beach for swimming, and there weren’t a lot of options for buying food either. For dinner, since we didn’t really feel like doing much, we went to a restaurant right on the beach. It was a terrible decision. The food was horrible! That completes Day 3 of our short trip to Koh Samui. ************************************************************************* Music in this video is from Audio Network This travel food video was filmed and produced by Mark Wiens and Ying Wiens, check out our blogs: http://migrationology.com/blog & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/ & http://www.travelbyying.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Twitter: https://twitter.com/migrationology SNAPCHAT: migrationology Resources I use: http://migrationology.com/travel-resources/ Travel guides: http://migrationology.com/travel-guides/ NOTE: I was invited to stay at Santiburi Beach Resort from my blog (http://migrationology.com/), not from my videos.

Tokyo Street Food Ramen at Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上)
 
03:56
Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上) serves satisfying Japanese street food ramen in Tokyo. Get more details here: http://migrationology.com/2014/05/chuka-soba-inoue-street-ramen-tokyo/ A bowl of Ramen, is one of the most popular things to eat in Japan. It's not only soothing and satisfying, but it's also filling, extremely tasty, and often times one of the most affordable meals in Japan. In Tokyo, you'll find a restaurant that serves ramen at nearly every corner - in fact you can't even walk more than a few meters without bumping into another ramen restaurant. I ate a number of different types of ramen while I was in Tokyo, but the one that stood out to me the most, was the long-standing street food stall just outside of the Tsukiji market, known as Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上). Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上) has been around for a long time, and I think it's safe to say that they have served thousands and thousands of bowls of delicious ramen to hungry passerby's. The restaurant is located on the side of the sidewalk, where there's a continual flow of pedestrian traffic all day long - the position is great. Starting from early in the morning Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上) has a line of people waiting to be served, but luckily it usually goes very fast as people slurp down their bowls of ramen as fast as possible and continue on. Street food in Japan it's not actually very common - much of the food is served from restaurants - so Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上) was one of the few street food restaurants that I ate at while I was in Tokyo. There are many different types of Japanese ramen; Some types have buttery and creamy broth, but at Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上) they serve what's known as shoyu ramen, which is the clear broth, seasoned with a hint of soy sauce. For myself, this is one of my favorite versions of ramen, mainly because it doesn't feel too greasy or heavy, but it just goes down smoothly and the flavors are just so clean. So anyway, I had already walked past Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上) one time before eating there, and I knew it was a place I had to try. The best thing is, you don't need to choose what to eat, they only serve one thing, the shoyu ramen. After you pay, it just takes a minute or two before the ramen master dishes out your bowl, which is always served piping hot. There is no seating, but they just have a couple of standing tables, where you can rest your bowl of ramen, season it appropriately, and get straight to digging in. For myself, it's the raw minced garlic that really makes a bowl of Japanese ramen incredible. Without raw garlic I wouldn't like it nearly as much: the garlic elevates it to new levels. I made sure to add a generous supply of raw garlic to my bowl of ramen, and that made all the difference. The ramen noodles came topped with a few slices of pork, some pickled bamboo shoots, and a handful of sliced leeks and green onions. Like I mentioned before, the broth was clear and smooth and not too oily, which is something I really liked. Again, season with raw garlic, a hint of black pepper and chili, it was perfect. When you visit Tokyo, you have to have a bowl of ramen at Chuka Soba Inoue (中華そば 井上). It might not be the absolute best tasting ramen in Tokyo, but the Japanese street food atmosphere on the outskirts of Tsukiji, combined with a piping hot bowl of classic tasting ramen, is a wonderful experience. It was also winter when I went, and quite cold outside, so nothing satisfying like a hot bowl of soup. Open hours: 5 am -- 1:30 pm (closed Sundays) Address: 4-9-16 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan Price: 650 JPY ($6.40) More details here: http://migrationology.com/2014/05/chuka-soba-inoue-street-ramen-tokyo/ Tokyo food guide: http://migrationology.com/2014/03/tokyo-travel-guide-for-food-lovers/ Get my free street food guide: http://wp.me/Psd9b-4pl Bangkok 101 Guide: http://migrationology.com/ebook-101-things-to-do-in-bangkok/ Eating Thai Food Guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/eating-thai-food-guide/ Follow my adventures on http://migrationology.com/blog & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/blog/ Thank you so much for watching this food and travel video by Mark Wiens.

Traveling to Chiang Rai (เมืองเชียงราย), Northern Thailand
 
12:26
Chiang Rai (เมืองเชียงราย) is a city in northern Thailand that I’ve always wanted to visit, and finally I had a chance to go. Keep watching this video for all the details. From Bangkok, I first bought a plane ticket with Bangkok Airways - it was also my first time to fly with Bangkok Airways, though I had heard good things about them before. Our flight was in the morning so we took a taxi in Bangkok to Suvarnabhumi International Airport to catch our flight. After we checked it, we headed to our gate, and were greeted by a nice little display of snacks and coffee and tea - not bad for just a one hour flight that cost less than $50! After eating some banana chips and a few cheese sandwiches, our flight to Chiang Rai was ready to board. On the flight Bangkok Airways served us even more food. It was a nice flight, and it took just one hour to fly from Bangkok to Chiang Rai. After landing in Chiang Rai, we got our bag, and then took a taxi into town. Ying and had booked a hotel called Amarin Resort, as I needed a nice place to get some work done, and we were looking for a place to get some nice relaxation as well. I immediately loved the resort we were staying at - it was nice and extremely quiet, the grounds were nice and green, and our room was quite big in size and very comfortable. After checking into our hotel and relaxing for a bit, we then headed out to eat lunch at a famous northern Thai restaurant, which was actually located just a 5 minute walk from our hotel, known as Lu Lam. We ordered a number of different Thai dishes, including one of my favorite northern Thai foods, lab khua, minced pork with lots of spices. The entire meal was quite wonderful, and it was a delicious first meal in Chiang Rai. I also loved that the restaurant was located right along the river, offering a lovely and peaceful atmosphere. During the summer, the sun in Chiang Rai is intensely hot, especially in the middle of the day. So after lunch, we decided to head back to the hotel and I needed to get some work done. I wrote some blogs before we headed out again in the afternoon at about 4 pm when the sun was toned down quite a bit. We headed into Chiang Rai town, and our first stop was to walk around the Chiang Rai clock tower, an incredibly intricate and ornate golden clock tower, sort of the landmark of downtown Chiang Rai city. We then continued walking, and soon found ourselves in the evening central market, a vibrant display of all things northern Thai food. I wanted to actually eat everything I saw, but I was actually still quite full from the delicious lunch we had eaten not too long before. I ended up buying some avocados and some passion fruit, two of my favorite natural things. After walking around the local food market, we then headed over to check out the Chiang Rai night bazaar. It turned out to be a little on the touristy side, not so much my style, but it could be a good place to go if you travel to Chiang Rai and are looking to buy some souvenir. There’s a food court at the Chiang Rai night bazaar, so we stopped there for a quick and light bite to eat. I ordered a dish called jim jum, which is basically the Thai street food version of a hot pot. We got a pot of soup boiling in a clay pot, accompanied by a basket of vegetables, an egg, and some chicken, and then we just boiled everything together. It wasn’t the best meal of my life, it was alright, but I just wanted to eat something for dinner that wasn’t too heavy or meaty - as I had eaten quite a huge lunch! My first day traveling from Bangkok to Chiang Rai was a wonderful day. I immediately fell in love with Chiang Rai, how peaceful it is, and I really love the northern Thai culture and the food.

Famous Singaporean Food - Adam Road NASI LEMAK in Singapore!
 
11:48
Adam Road Nasi Lemak is a legendary Singapore hawker food stall! ►Subscribe to my channel for more videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►Check out my full blog of Adam Road Nasi Lemak: https://migrationology.com/ada... ►Singapore Travel Guide: https://migrationology.com/travel-guid... One of the most famous food stalls in Singapore that serves nasi lemak is Adam Road Nasi Lemak - the official name being Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak. So one day, it was my goal to go there. But before going to Adam Road food centre, I first met up with Tuah who I met in Singapore, and he offered to take us to the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark. Marina Bay Sands is one of the most iconic hotels in Singapore, home to a massive boat shaped structure at the top of three towers. At the top is the iconic infinity edge swimming pool on one side, which is only open to guests, but on the other side, it’s open and called the Skypark where visitors can pay an entrance fee and go to the top for a view over Singapore. The view over Singapore was pretty amazing, and although an expensive attraction, it was a great view of the city and harbor. After finishing at Marina Bay Sands, we headed over to the Botanic Gardens MRT station and walked to Adam Road food centre, where the famous nasi lemak stall is located. I could immediately see the long line of people waiting in line - there were about 50 or so people ahead of us, and we jumped in line and decided to wait it out - luckily I didn’t have anything else to do that day. We finally got our plates of nasi lemak, and I ordered the Royal Rumble, the plate of nasi lemak including a bit of everything they had. The rice, which was basmati long grain, was cooked with coconut milk so it had a rich and very fluffy texture to it. The rice was very fragrant. The other parts of the Adam Road Nasi Lemak included otak otak, a fried chicken wing, an egg, and fried mackerel and the sambal. Everything else was pretty standard tasting to me, but it was the rice that was the best thing on the place. Adam Road food centre in Singapore is a very nice and calm hawker centre that has lots of good food. So even if you don’t go for the nasi lemak, there are still some other delicious Malay foods to try when you go. Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak (better known as Adam Road Nasi Lemak) Address: 2 Adam Rd, #01-02, Adam Road Food Centre, Singapore Open hours: 7 am – 5 pm (closed on Friday) Prices: The plate I ate was $5.50 SGD How to get there: Take the MRT to Botanic Gardens, and Adam Road Food Centre is just a 5 minute walk away. -- MY WEBSITES: Singapore Travel Guide: http://migrationology.com/travel-guid...

African Food - BEST MEAL at MAGICAL LAKE KIVU in Gisenyi, Rwanda | Ultimate Africa Food Tour!
 
24:00
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Thanks to Yves from Everywhere Travel Tours: [email protected] Gisenyi is a beautiful town on the shores of Lake in Rwanda. The lake is incredible, surrounded by lush green mountains. It’s a perfect place in Rwanda to spend some time relaxing, learning about the culture, and eating. One of the main Rwandan foods to eat at Lake Kivu is sambaza, a fish similar to sardines. To begin this food and cultural tour of Gisenyi, Lake Kivu, we first stopped off at the local market, and took a boat ride. They were not allowed to fish on that day to control the fishing, but the fishermen gave us a quick lesson on how they fish, and took us out on a boat just to show us. It was one of the highlights of the day for me. The fishing boats are so peaceful and the rowing songs were amazing. After having a quick snack of some deep fried sambaza, which were delicious, we continued on to one of the biggest fresh markets in Gisenyi. We saw ladies pounding cassava leaves, and stopped to eat some fruit. The tree tomatoes in Rwanda by the way are delicious. Ibyiwacu Restaurant - Next we ate a quick Rwandan food lunch at a local restaurant. Buffets are very common in Rwanda, you choose all your different starches, with beans, and a couple of different sauces, and you can choose if you want meat or without meal. Overall, very good and fresh food, a little plain, but good with some extra chili sauce. Price - 1,500 RWF ($1.70) per person Next we headed to a local home for a home cooked African meal, including some of the local ingredients commonly used in the culture around Lake Kivu. Sambaza are a staple, but since we already had some fried, they made a peanut (groundnut) stew with the fish, and also made some vegetable dishes, with rice, and a number of other starches. The sambaza with peanut sauce was the BEST meal of my entire trip to Rwanda.

Incredible UNSEEN FOOD of AFRICA - Dorze Ethnic Group in Ethiopia!
 
21:40
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ This is Part 2 of our Ethiopian village cultural food tour. If you haven’t already seen Part 1, you can watch it here: From the incredible Konso Village, we drove back to Arba Minch in Ethiopia, and then continued driving into the mountains, to a Dorze ethnic people village, high into the misty peaks. This is the village where Dessie is originally from, and also our driver, so they know everyone there. It was amazing to arrive to the village. One of the amazing parts of Dorze Ethiopian culture are their elephant shaped traditional huts, which are unique and one of a kind, shaped like elephants. One of the main most important foods of the Dorze is false banana, also known as ensete. It’s called a false banana because they plant does not produce banana fruit, but just giant leaves, and you eat the stump. Aunty made a number of extremely unique dishes, including a false banana porridge, and a false banana pancake, along with coffee leaves tea - something I had never seen or ever heard of before. Visiting the Dorze of Ethiopia was an incredible culture and food learning experience, and it was an honor to have a chance to visit on this Ethiopian food tour trip. Thanks to Dessie from Go Addis Tours (http://goaddistours.com/) for arranging everything on this trip.

Pat Pat's Kansi (My Last Meal in Manila)
 
07:52
I’ve already mentioned this a few times, but my main camera broke when I was in the Philippines, and so I had to use my backup camera. The only problem is, I forgot to bring the battery charger We went to the Canon repair center in Manila and along with taking 3 weeks to fix my main camera, they called all the Canon stores throughout Manila and couldn’t find a charger for my small backup point and shoot camera. So I was kind of out of luck. So having my point and shoot camera on its last leg, with just a bit of battery left, Ying and I decided to jump in a taxi and go to Pat Pat’s Kansi, a restaurant I had seen on Foursquare, and thought would make a good last meal in Manila (https://foursquare.com/v/patpats-kansi/4bb026acf964a520d5393ce3). I ordered the kansi, a big bowl of beef soup with a giant club sized bone in the middle, full of bone marrow. We also ordered some grilled squid, a grilled boneless bangus (milkfish), and fresh lumpia. All the food at Pat Pat's Kansi was excellent - I especially enjoyed the kansi and the boneless bangus, but the squid was also good. Our waitress showed me how to make a simple Filipino sauce of soy sauce, calamansi, and chilies to eat along with everything. If you’re looking for a good restaurant in the Makati area of Manila, Pat Pat's Kansi is a cool restaurant to check out. -------------------------------------------- This food travel video was produced by Mark Wiens and Ying Wiens.

9 Polynesian Foods to Try at the Polynesian Cultural Center
 
10:16
Read the full post: http://migrationology.com/2015/06/polynesian-cultural-center-food/ When I was in Hawaii, on the same day as learning how to cook a pig in an imu, kind of a cross between and Hawaiian and Samoan version, I also had a chance to walk around the Polynesian Cultural Center and eat some of the main snacks they offered in what they call the Taste of Polynesia. The Polynesian Cultural Center is a center that aims to preserve the cultures of the main islands of Polynesia. The center is set up in villages, where there are traditional homes, and a series of performances from the country represented. To make things more well rounded, the Taste of Polynesia is basically a series of small snack bars that open and each serve a different set of Polynesian food snacks. We started in the village of Samoa with sausage and gravy over rice, a dish I never would have thought is so popular in Samoa. But due to the British influence I believe, it’s quite a popular dish. The sausage was simmered in gravy, and paired with rice. The sausage was actually quite good, a little plain, but very good. Also in the Samoa village, we tried a panipopo, basically a bun that was slightly sweetened, and covered in a thick coconut cream sauce. I’m not a big desserts eater, but this was alright. The bun was nice and fluffy like a roll, and then the sauce was thick and creamy. Lastly in the village of Samoa at the Polynesian Cultural Center we tried the half-Moon pineapple pie, basically a pastry filled with pineapple insides. Moving on, we continued our Polynesian food tour in Tonga with a dessert snack called ‘Otai. ‘Otai was more of a beverage with fruit. This one was too sweet for me, but it was good if you enjoy sweets and need something cool on a hot day walking around. Next up from native Hawaii, they served a dish called koelepalau, purple sweet potato coconut pudding. This one was probably my wife’s favorite. It tasted like sweet potatoes, mashed, and mixed with rich coconut cream. It wasn’t too rich or sweet, but had a nice fragrance, and it was quite good. Although this is a Hawaiian dessert, it’s not too easy to find in Hawaii. Of all the desserts we ate at the Polynesian Cultural Center, my favorite was the po’e, from Tahiti, a banana cake topped with coconut cream. The bananas were a little overripe (on purpose), almost to the point where they were slightly candied and just before that fermentation taste. Then they were covered in coconut cream that wasn’t sweetened at all. They informed us that there was not sugar in the recipe, just really sweet bananas and coconut milk. It was pretty good, and naturally sweet, and a good contrast of flavors. Over in Fiji I was ready to eat the Fijian chicken curry. I didn’t know Fiji had such a big Indian influence, and so I was happy to finally see a dish that had some good flavor to it. The spices in the curry were mild, yet well balanced, and the Fijian curry was my favorite dish of the tour. After the curry, I tried a meat pie from Aotearoa (New Zealand). I don’t have too much experience in the meat pie department, but this one was pretty good, filled with meat and cheese. Finally, the last thing I ate at the Polynesian Cultural Center was an egg, bacon & cheese quiche, also from Aotearoa (New Zealand). Read the full blog post: http://migrationology.com/2015/06/polynesian-cultural-center-food/ NOTE: I was invited to come to the Polynesian Cultural Center when I was in Hawaii, so I didn’t pay for the food or the entrance ticket. But I’m not affiliated with the center, and all thoughts and opinions in this video are my own. ********************************************************************************************* 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/ I’d love to keep in touch with you: 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 Thank you for watching!

Din Tai Fung at Taipei 101: How to Eat Taiwanese Soup Dumplings!
 
07:47
Din Tai Fung at Taipei 101, read my blog post: http://migrationology.com/2015/08/din-tai-fung-taipei-101/ One of the most famous restaurant in all of Taipei is Din Tai Fun, a restaurant that’s become famous and even synonymous for serving soup dumplings known as xiao long bao. The original location of Din Tai Fung, located on Xinyi street is only one of the many locations now around Taipei and even around the world. But since we were already visiting the Taipei 101, we decided to skip the original location and eat at the Din Tai Fung Taipei 101 branch for lunch one day. One of the best things about the restaurant is the service and the branding - it almost runs like a fast food restaurant - the system works so well, yet of course they serve much higher quality food. We arrived to the restaurant at about 11 am and luckily that was early enough to beat the main Taipei lunch rush. We got situated down, and made our order. The dumplings are all handmade inside the restaurant, and as soon as you enter you’ll notice a small army of white dressed dumpling makers who look like they work at a hospital, but in fact they are making world class dumplings - all by hand. The Din Tai Fung menu includes quite a few different things, but really the only reason everyone goes there is mainly to eat soup dumplings, the xiao long bao - everything else on the menu is sort of secondary, though it’s nice to have a variety of different foods on the table. But let’s start with the xiao long bao soup dumplings. What I really enjoyed about the xiao long bao at Din Tai Fung at Taipei 101 is that they were very delicate. The wrapper wasn’t too thick, but it was just nice and thin and the pork mixture inside was delicate and flavorful, but not overly salty like it can sometimes be. In order to eat xiao long bao, there was a handy instructions card on the table at the restaurant. The first step was to add some soy sauce and vinegar to your dipping bowl, then dip a dumpling into the sauce and top with ginger, then put your dumpling in your spoon and poke a hole in the wrapper to release all the soup juice, and then eat it all in one bite. The instructions worked well and I successfully enjoy all the xiao long bao. Along with the soup dumplings another dish I tried was the minced pork topped noodles which came with a pile of hand-made noodles on the bottom with a minced pork and Chinese sausage mixture on the top. It was a little on the plain side, but it was pretty good. We also ordered a few other side dishes like pickled cucumber and the Din Tai Fung salad, all of which were good, but nothing compared to the xiao long bao. Again, there are a number of location of Din Tai Fung around Taipei, and the Taipei 101 branch is a really nice restaurant. It’s clean, the service is really good, and it’s all about those soup dumplings. The music in this video is from Audio Network This food travel video was produced by Mark Wiens and Ying Wiens.

Subscribe for more videos► http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe T-shirts for sale here► https://migrationology.com/store/ On this Cambodian street food tour in Phnom Penh, I’m taking you on a one day tour to eat authentic Khmer breakfast lunch and dinner in a single day. Cambodian Breakfast - 7 am There are plenty of dishes you can eat for breakfast in Cambodia, but nothing is as popular or widely available as a dish called bai sach chrouk, grilled thin strips of marinated pork over broken rice with pickles and soup on the side. It’s a simple combination, but a plate for breakfast is extremely satisfying. Price - 3,500 KHR ($0.84) Cambodian Lunch - 11:30 am Just outside of Psar Chas (Old Market) in Phnom Penh, you’ll find an abundance of colorful Khmer street food stall that serve all sorts of grilled river fish, and a huge selection of different dishes to choose from. While most locals get their food for takeaway, a kind lady offered us a seat in front of her house to sit down and eat. It was an amazing and extremely local Cambodian food lunch. The grilled fish and the parhok were my favorite dishes. Lunch total price - 35,000 KHR ($8.42) Cambodian Dinner - 6:30 pm For Cambodian dinner we decided to eat Cambodian bbq, and it’s a type of restaurant you’re going to want to try when you’re in Cambodia. 34 Langeach Sros is a Cambodian beer garden style restaurant, and they have a pretty good assortment of grilled meats and unique Cambodian delicacies. It was one of the tastiest Cambodian meals I’ve ever had in my life. The ant larvae and goat was amazing, and the eel fried with herbs was outstanding. Thank you to Lina from http://www.movetocambodia.com/ for the recommendation. Total price - $22.88 That completes an authentic tour of Cambodian food in a single day, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

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!

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.

Banh Mi Sandwich at Bánh Mì Hồng Hoa - Amazing Vietnamese Street Food in Saigon, Vietnam!
 
05:41
Bánh Mì is one of the most well known and beloved of all Vietnamese street foods. In this video, I ate at Bánh Mì Hồng Hoa, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Get all the details here: http://migrationology.com/2014/12/best-banh-mi-saigon-ho-chi-minh-city/ You may have already seen a short clip of this video in the full food vlog of the day: http://youtu.be/-VgxU81e2sc (you can watch this if you haven't seen it). Bánh Mì (also spelled banh mi), actually just means bread in Vietnamese. However, outside of Vietnam, the term often refers to the Vietnamese sandwich, wrapped into a crusty baguette. In Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), you seriously can’t go more than a few meters without seeing the next banh mi vendor or stall. It’s one of the most popular Vietnamese street foods, and it is great for both takeaway and sitting down for a nice bite. Banh mi sandwiches are often eaten for snacks, or for light meals. The personal sized baguettes, which have influence from the French, are very light and airy, and they are not overly filling. The outside of the bread is incredibly crusty and crunchy, and the inside is very soft and airy. Together, the contrast of textures, makes it perfect for a sandwich. Like I said before, there’s a near infinite amount of places to get banh mi in Saigon, but on this day I went to a place not too far from where I was staying called Bánh Mì Hồng Hoa. While some of the other famous banh mi restaurants in the area are only open in the afternoon and evening, this restaurant is mostly open in the morning, and served a crowd of people for takeaway every morning. I ordered their most basic normal banh mi, a sandwich that began with a nice freshly baked baguette (and by the way, they were also selling freshly baked baguettes, which were hot and fresh), that was cut in half, then filled with a mixture of pate, mayonnaise, a few different slices of Vietnamese cured meat, meatloaf, and some grilled pieces of pork. On top of that, she also loaded in a nice amount thinly sliced crisp veggies like cucumber, green onions, and cilantro, and then some Vietnamese pickled, including daikon radish and carrots. Finally, she added a little more seasoning, and finally added some fresh red crushed chili to give it some heat. I have to be honest and say that this was one of my first banh mi sandwiches I had when I arrived in Saigon, and it turned out to be one of my favorites of my entire trip. It wasn’t the most impressive one, but I thought it was the freshest and the most well balanced of all of them. It had just the right ratio of meat to sauces, and it had a nice touch of all the fresh vegetables. The ratio and mixture was perfect for me, and their bread was also fresh and crusty. On top of having a wonderful banh mi, the staff, and all the owners of Bánh Mì Hồng Hoa were all extremely friendly and were happy that we were there enjoying their sandwiches. I ate the banh mi and filmed this food video at Bánh Mì Hồng Hoa: Open hours: I think open mostly during the morning Price: This beauty of a sandwich cost just 17,000 Vietnamese Dong - money well spent and fully enjoyed.

Ethiopian Food in 500 YEAR OLD Konso Village in Ethiopia - AMAZING AFRICAN CULTURE!
 
23:08
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Due to some unforeseen flight changes in our schedule, we didn’t have much time to explore the Konso Village, but we did have enough time to experience this amazing cultural heritage site, to taste some local food. Visiting the village was a humbling experience, an area of Ethiopia that has been through famine, and to sit down and sample some food from a local family in the village, food they had grown and prepared, was truly special. It is important to remember how fortunate we are to have food on the table. Konso Village - We began the day in Addis Ababa, where we flew to Arba Minch in southern Ethiopia. After having a quick lunch, some delicious Ethiopian food fish, we drove the bumpy road to Konso. Konso culture and villages are a UNESCO world heritage site, for their preservation of culture and traditions, and it was incredibly special to visit. We toured the village, and I was amazed how advanced their systems were, and their construction. It was evening and in one of the homes we met a lady who was cooking the family meal for dinner. She was cooking sorghum, moringa leaves, and cassava. It’s not the most flavorful food you’ll taste, but cooked with love, ingredients grown right there, it was a huge honor to share some of their food. It’s a remember of how privileged and fortunate we are to have such abundance. Thanks to Dessie from Go Addis Tours (http://goaddistours.com/) for arranging everything on this trip.

Street Food in Lombok - BEST GRILLED CHICKEN in the WORLD!!  Mataram, Indonesia!
 
24:18
For me, ayam taliwang in Lombok is the best grilled chicken in the world so far! ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts: https://migrationology.com/store/ One of the main reasons I wanted to travel to the island of Lombok in Indonesia is to eat the original ayam taliwang, a style of spicy grilled chicken that truly is the best grilled chicken I’ve ever tasted anywhere in the world. In this Mataram, Lombok food tour, we eat at some of the best and most legendary street food stalls in Mataram, Lombok! RM. Bebalung Kelebet - For breakfast I couldn’t wait to try a dish called bebalung, a beef ribs dish. You have to arrive at this place in the morning or they will sell out, and the beef ribs are extraordinary with sambal and rice. Price - 68,000 IDR ($5.02) for 2 Islamic Center Mosque - After the beef ribs breakfast feast, we walked over to have a quick tour of the biggest mosque in Mataram. Rumah Makan Sukaraja - For first lunch, we headed to a restaurant known for their Lombok style nasi campur, where you can choose a mixture of different dishes all over your rice. It was excellent. Price - 90,000 IDR ($6.65) for 2 Pasar Kebon Roek Pantai Ampenan Warung Sate Rembiga Utama - For lunch number two, and one of the must eat Indonesian foods to try when you’re in Lombok is sate rembiga. The sate is a little sweet, but spicy at the same time, and I would venture to say they are some of the most addictive sate I’ve ever had anywhere. Total price - 89,000 IDR ($6.57) Taliwang Khas Pak Udin - Finally on to ayam taliwang, and I ordered super pedas, extra spicy. They first deep fry the chicken, then coat it in multiple layers of chili sauce, and then grill it over a ridiculous hot fire, while pouring chili all over it. The result is a grilled chicken that will change your life forever, it’s insane. Price - 40,000 IDR ($2.95) per chicken Seafood Ikan Bakar 88 - Finally to end this Indonesian food tour of Mataram, I met up with a group at a street food seafood restaurant.

Incredible Shrimp Salad and Maybe The Best Cinnamon Buns in the World
 
23:10
►Camera I use: http://amzn.to/2dEL3hv ►Check out my Stockholm travel guide for food lovers: https://goo.gl/Duc1fB ►Subscribe to my videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe On Day 19 of our Round The World Trip with Star Alliance, we had a morning fika (Swedish coffee break), and enjoyed some seriously delicious cinnamon buns. After visiting the Vasa Museum in Stockholm, we then went to a garden restaurant and I had and incredibly delicious shrimp salad. It was a relaxing and another wonderful day visiting Stockholm, Sweden. 1:00 Fika at Valhallabageriet Bakery - There’s a term in Sweden that’s called fika, which means to have a coffee break. And not only does it just mean to have a coffee, but it also has is a deep part of Swedish culture. So to begin the day, Ying and I headed over to a bakery called Valhallabageriet Bakery to have a fika, and I bought a cinnamon bun, a cardamom bun, and a coffee. We arrived pretty early, so the bakery was still nice and quiet and located in a beautiful area of town. The cinnamon bun and cardamom bun were easily the best I’ve ever had. I’m not a huge baked good lover or a sweets lover, but these were on the next level. It was a very successful fika in Stockholm. Total price - 74 SEK ($8.60) 5:18 Vasa Museum - 130 SEK ($15.12) per person - Next we walked over to the Vasa Museum, which is one of the most famous museums in Stockholm that’s home to a war ship that sunk just off the coast of Stockholm. The ship was in near perfect condition and it was salvaged and is now within the Vasa Museum. It was very interesting to see. Also within that area there are numbers other Stockholm attractions, museums, and entertainment. 7:06 Blå Porten Restaurant and Cafe - For lunch we walked over to a restaurant called Blå Porten Restaurant and Cafe, which was just around the corner from the museum we visited. To begin with the restaurant is in an absolutely beautiful setting, within a garden and courtyard. You walk in the restaurant and it’s kind of cafeteria style, where you walk through the line, order the Swedish food you’d like, and then pay before finding a seat. For Ying and I, we ordered a plate of lamb meatballs, and then a Swedish styles shrimp salad. The lamb meatballs were wonderful, but the highlight of lunch was the shrimp salad which was incredibly good. The shrimp were so sweet and stringy that they almost tasted like crab. Total price - 314 SEK ($36.52) 12:40 Boat to Slussen Pier - 25 SEK ($2.91) per person - One of the best ways to get around Stockholm is by taking the ferry. The views are fantastic! 17:37 Dinner at Björk Bar & Grill - After walking all the way home and getting some wonderful views of Stockholm, and also waiting out a rain storm, we headed back to our hotel, and had dinner at the Björk Bar & Grill. I ordered some more dill cured salmon, and also one of my favorite Swedish dishes, toast skagen. I didn’t pay for this meal, but each dish cost about 120 - 170 SEK ($13.95 - $19.77). It was an amazing final day in Stockholm, and I especially enjoyed the shrimp salad at Blå Porten Restaurant. Stay tuned for the next day when we fly from Stockholm to Barcelona!

15-Hour Filipino Food Tour in Pampanga & Manila, Philippines - HUGE LECHON with Makansutra!
 
22:16
Thank you for watching this 15 hour Filipino food tour with World Street Food Congress! ►Subscribe here: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►Follow my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/migrationology/ ►31 May - 4 June: If you happen to be in Manila from 31 May - 4 June, check out the World Street Food Congress 2017 event (http://wsfcongress.com/). There’s going to be some seriously delicious food from around the world there! I had another travel commitment during that time, so I won’t be able to attend, but I know the food will be awesome. World Street Food Congress: http://wsfcongress.com/ KF Seetoh: https://www.instagram.com/kfseetoh/ Eat and Shout: https://www.instagram.com/eatandshout/ The World Street Food Congress and KF Seetoh from Singapore, invited me to attend a 15 hour Filipino food frenzy safari, and was excited to be a part of it! We started in Manila, then went to Pampanga for the main part of the tour, and then returned to Manila to eat more, and end with a grand finale lechon! 1. Bulaluhan sa España - We started off this Filipino food tour at about 7 am in Manila at a restaurant called Bulaluhan sa España, known for serving bulalo, a beef bone marrow soup. It was pretty tasty, a great way to get started, and my kind of a local restaurant. 2. Atching Lillian - Pampanga is known for being the food culinary capital of the Philippines, and we first went to Atching Lillian, who is legendary for preserving local cuisine. We had some interesting home-cooked Kampangan dishes, and some Filipino tamales. 3. Taldawa - This was probably my favorite stop on this Filipino food tour of Pampanga, a restaurant that specializes in goat and duck. The duck adobo and goat kaldereta were amazing. 4. 25 Seeds - On the food tour we had Chef Sau Del Rosario, a renowned Filipino chef from Pampanga, and just an awesome guy. We next went to his restaurant called 25 Seeds where we were treated to sisig paella, a creation by KF Seetoh and Chef Sau Del Rosario. It was an incredible combination. 5. Susie’s Cuisine - This place is well known throughout Pampanga for their Filipino desserts. I’m not big on desserts, but I tried a few bites, and that was about enough for me. 6. Makansutra Hawkers - Since this food tour event was also a press conference for the actual street food event, we then went to Makansutra Hawkers for a quick conference and more Malaysian / Singaporean food, which was excellent. 7. Zubuchon Lechon - I know there are infinite debates about Filipino lechon, or roast pig, but we went to a place that’s originally from Cebu, but they opened a branch in Manila, known as Zubuchon Lechon. It was pretty awesomely good, so extremely crunchy on the outside and creamy soft on the inside. World Street Food Congress 2017 – If you’re in Manila from 31 May – 4 June 2017, don’t miss eating at World Street Food Congress 2017. It’s going to be a huge event, with a curated selection of street food hawkers that I can almost guarantee will impress your taste buds. Thank you to Makansutra and the Philippine Department of Tourism for inviting me on this Filipino food tour! -- Camera gear I use: Main camera: http://amzn.to/2dEL3hv Main lens: http://amzn.to/2e5Lum6 2nd camera: http://amzn.to/2mczuDx 2nd lens: http://amzn.to/2mcEGau Microphone: http://amzn.to/2dEr9Z9 Gorillapod: http://amzn.to/2epFsQx *These are Amazon affiliate links I would love to connect with you!

Ethiopian Food - The ONE DISH You Have To Eat in ETHIOPIA!
 
20:13
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ One of my main missions when I visited Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was to learn about how to cook what is for sure one of the most special of all Ethiopian foods: doro wat (ዶሮ ወጥ). Of course, they do serve it at restaurants in Addis Ababa, but there’s nothing like seeing the entire process of a dish, especially a stew like doro wat from start to finish, beginning with a chicken, and finishing by eating. It’s a very complicated dish to make, and it takes utmost care and time. I want to say a huge thank you to Belaneh and his family for graciously inviting us to their home and for cooking the most amazing doro wat - or even Ethiopian food meal - ever. What is doro wat (ዶሮ ወጥ)? Doro means chicken and wat means stew - so it’s an Ethiopian chicken stew. It’s a very special dish to eat in Ethiopia, not an everyday food because it takes so much time to prepare properly. As many Ethiopians told me, it’s a dish they often eat when family comes together, and during special holidays and religious days. I would go as far as saying Doro Wat is one of the best dishes in the world. The complexity yet harmony of spices, the richness, the contrast of taste when paired with injera - your taste buds will be blown off your tongue! Thank you to Bela and his incredible family, they took no shortcuts on making doro wat, and beyond the delicious food, it was so extremely special to get to know them and hang out with them. We first went to the fresh wet market in Addis Ababa to buy a chicken, the live chicken. We then gathered a few more ingredients, including the chopped red onions, which is the main component of doro wat sauce, and went back to Bela’s home. Butchering a chicken in Ethiopian, due to some of the Ethiopian Orthodox traditions, needs to be butchered in a certain way, and washed and cleaned many times. It was by far the most cleansed chicken I’ve ever seen or eaten. The onions simmered for a few hours before we started adding in the berbere blend spice and finally the chicken went in to brew with the amazing spices. To eat Ethiopian food, you first typically build a plate or platter of injera, and then scoop the food onto the injera. We all shared a platter and scooped on the beautiful doro wat. It was unbelievably delicious, so rich and packed with spice. Again, thank you to Bela and his wife (and baby) for cooking us one of the most special meals you can eat in Ethiopia.

21 Things To Do In Delhi, India (नई दिल्ली)
 
11:52
For many more things to do in Delhi, where to stay, and delicious food to eat, check out my Delhi Travel Guide: https://migrationology.com/store/delhi-travel-guide/ (click the link)! Delhi, India, (नई दिल्ली) is the national capital of the country and has a metropolitan population of around 22 million residents. The city is ancient, it's been around since the 6th century BC so there are many historical and cultural places to visit. That's specifically why I created this list of 21 things to do in Delhi, to help you plan and get excited about visiting Delhi, India. 1. The Lotus Temple (Bahá'í House of Worship) - The temple is in the shape of a giant lotus and on the inside is a peaceful sanctuary where you can enter and sit in silence for as long as you like. 2. ISKCON Hare Krishna Temple - I had never seen a temple like this before, so it as an interesting experience to hear the music and walk around the interior of the temple. 3. Kalkaji Mandir Hindu Temple - This temple is a very important Hindu temple in Delhi and while I was there, there were a number of babies being dedicated by being decorated and blessed. 4. Jama Masjid - Located in Old Delhi, Jama Masjid is the largest mosque in all of Delhi. Though they will attempt to get money from you, it's free to enter the mosque, but if you want to take photos inside they will charge you 300 rupees. 5. Akshardham Temple - This modern Hindu temple located on the outskirts of Delhi literally made my jaw drop, it's that amazing. It's free to enter, but unfortunately, they don't allow any photography inside. This is one of the things to do in Delhi that you cannot afford to miss! 6. Gurudwara Bangla Sahib (Sikh Temple) - Unlike some other sites in Delhi where you'll find many touts and hustlers, the Gurdwara Sikh Temple is about the nicest and most friendly place you can go in Delhi. People are extremely nice and you can enter the temple to listen to music. 7. Laxmi Narayan Mandir -- Dedicated by Mahatma Gandhi, this is one of the most significant Hindu temples in Delhi. 8. Hauz Khas Complex - I'm always amazed at the history of Delhi and Hauz Khas is an excellent example of ancient monuments in the middle of a public park. 9. Lodi Gardens - As a free entrance public park, visiting the Lodi Gardens is one of the most amazing things to do in Delhi. It's just like an ordinary park, but it's filled with thousand year old tombs and monuments that are truly inspirational. 10. India Gate - The war memorial is one of the landmarks of Delhi and resembles the famous Arc de Triomphe in Paris. 11. Jantar Mantar - The Jantar Mantar complex is a compound that houses 13 different astronomy instruments. The structures are confusing to look at, but if you read or follow a guide (or audio guide) you'll understand how each instrument functioned. 12. Qutub Minar - Just like Akshardham Temple, Qutub Minar is one of the top things to do in Delhi, it's truly remarkable. The minaret is the main attraction, a huge pillar of red carved sandstone that towers above the ancient ruins in the complex. 13. Humayun's Tomb - One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Delhi is Humayun's Tomb, built in Mughal Islamic architecture. 14. Tomb of Safdarjung - Very similar to Humayun's tomb is the tomb of Safdarjung. What I really liked is that there were no other tourists the day I went so it was quite and peaceful. 15. Red Fort - Located near Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi is the Red Fort. It's an entire walled in city where you can walk around the browse the many buildings within the walls. 16. Raj Ghat - The Raj Ghat is a memorial park dedicated to Gandhi. 17. Chandni Chowk & Chawri Bazar - The liveliest and busiest area of Delhi is Chandni Chowk and Chawri Bazar. I think it's possible to purchase anything from the entire world in this area, and you'll also find lots of delicious food. 18. Dilli Haat - This handicraft village was set up by the Delhi tourism authority and it's a decent place to purchase souvenirs or high quality crafts. You'll also find a food court that contains canteens serving food from all over India. 19. Connaught Place (Rajiv Chowk) - Known for short as just CP is a huge series of roundabouts and is the central modern business district of Delhi. Within the area you'll find all sorts of shops, famous restaurants and the Palika Bazar, an underground shopping center. 20. Paharganj (Main Bazar) - The main bazar is located just west of the New Delhi railroad station and it's an old area of town where you'll find a market and lots of budget accommodation options. 21. Delhi Street Food - Eating street food is one of the best things to do in Delhi, you'll love it. Thank you for watching this Delhi travel guide video and hope you have a great trip to Delhi, India!

Indian Street Food in Varanasi - Fried Mutter (Green Peas in a Leaf Bowl!)
 
01:55
Indian street food to eat in Varanasi is amazing. One of the most memorable street food snacks I had was fried mutter, or stir fried peas served in a leaf with a leaf spoon. While Varanasi, India, is extremely famous for being one of the holiest most sacred cities in all of India, it's also a pretty amazing city if you're looking to eat. Along the Ganges river you'll find a few snacks and random street food vendors, but to get the best food you either have to explore the narrow lanes in the ancient city or even walk around on the busy streets of the city. Within the lanes you'll find delicious Varanasi sweet shop vendors, things like pav bhaji and potato cutlets among other tasty things. Right along the main road that lead to the Main Ghat is a Varanasi street food vendor that serves nothing more than fried green peas (known as mutter in Hindi). He serves so many green peas that even his hands look as though they've permanently turned to a green tinge. Everyday in the afternoon the vendor rolls up his street food cart and begins to serve his prized delicious peas. After frying them until they are cooked, yet still a little on the crunchy side, he scoops them into a handful of fresh leaves shaped into a bowl, seasons them with some masala spices, salt, chili, and a squeeze of lime juice and then it's all ready to be served. While this simple combination is easy to make may not even sound too good, I'm here to tell you that it was wonderful. Standing in the middle of that incredibly loud street while nibbling on my fried mutter peas that were extremely well spiced and tasty was a wonderful Varanasi street food experience.

14:55
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Special thank you to Sam, Yemane, and Michael. Today was a little bit of a random day in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, searching for delicious Ethiopian food. I first met up with Sam, and he took me a little outside of town, an area known for their meat. We asked some locals around, and found a local meat restaurant that everyone agreed was the best in the city. Dulet - Dulet is an Ethiopian food of minced up raw organs, sauteed in Ethiopian spiced butter. It’s incredibly delicious. The the man sitting next to me ordered shekla tibs, a pan of sliced meat fried and served in a charcoal clay pan. It was very chewy, but tasty. Total price - 230 ETB ($8.31) including drinks Tej - Tej is traditional Ethiopian honey wine, and after asking, some people told us there was a local Ethiopian bar just down the road. It was quite an Ethiopian cultural experience. Price - 9 ETB ($0.33) per cup El Shaday Restaurant - Finally, we returned to Addis Ababa, in the center of the city, and searched out an Ethiopian food that I had desperately wanted to eat - called Tihlo. It’s a dish from Tigray, very rare to find in Addis Ababa, and even the friends I was eating with, who are all Ethiopian, had never heard of it, or tried it. So it was a first for all of us. Turned out to be incredibly delicious, and now one of my favorite new Ethiopian dishes. Price - 80 ETB ($2.89) Thank you for watching this unique Ethiopian food tour in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!

It’s a melting pot of a city, full of culture and delicious food. In this video, I met up with Farhana and Samil, both from Mombasa, and both love to eat. Lighthouse - First place we headed on this Kenyan street food tour of Mombasa is along the coast called Mama Ngina drive, or Lighthouse. You’ll find an abundance of small snacks along the road with a view over the cliffs of the Indian ocean. Probably my favorite street food was the fried cassava chips, which are fried fresh, put into bags, then seasoned with salt, chili powder, and lime juice. Here are the main street food snacks we had: Coconut, heart of palm, cassava - 340 KES ($3.33) total Cassava chips Roasted and fried cassava Coconuts Sweet potato, corn, many things Next we headed into the heart of Mombasa to eat from a roadside shop selling a mixture of bhajias, fried potatoes, and fried chilies. This is legendary street food in Mombasa! When you order she puts all the fried things onto a plate and douses them in coconut chutney and hot sauce. The combination is delicious, and my favorite item was the fried chilies. Bhajia plate combo - 90 KES ($0.88) Azad Ice Cream - We then had sugarcane juice, a Mombasa Kenyan favorite. They added sugarcane, plus ginger and lime. Damascus Shawarma - 200 KES ($1.96) - One of the popular food trucks in Mombasa is Damascus shawarma. It was pretty good. Abbasi Darbar - To finish off this Kenyan food tour of Mombasa, we ended with a mega meat feast at Abbasi Darbar, a great place to fulfill all your meat needs.

Rakhine SEAFOOD Feast in Yangon, Myanmar - Tiger Prawns BBQ and Delicious Crab!
 
08:37
Probably one of the most well known restaurants in Yangon, Myanmar, is Minn Lan. Read the full post here: http://migrationology.com/2014/09/minn-lan-seafood-restaurant-yangon-myanmar/ Minn Lan is a restaurant in Yangon, Myanmar, that specializes in serving seafood from the Rakhine state of Myanmar (it’s the state that runs along the western coastline of the country). When I asked in a video, here on my YouTube channel, about where to eat on my recent trip to Yangon, Minn Lan was a suggestion I received a number of times - so I made it a point to eat there. There are a number of Minn Lan restaurant locations throughout Yangon, but we went to the location along the Inya Lake, on Parami Road. The menu is pretty easy to order from as it’s written in both English and Burmese, and there’s also tempting photos to help order. The ordering wasn’t hard because of the English, but it was mainly hard because there were so many choices! Basically they have every type of seafood you can imagine, cooked in numerous different ways. I probably got a little overly excited, and Ying and I ended up ordering probably a bit more than we should have. The first thing we ordered was a plate of tiger prawns BBQ. The giant prawns were skewered on sticks, and then grilled (but to me they tasted sort of deep fried?), so I’m not sure exactly how they were cooked, and served with a pile of deep fried garlic on top. After peeling the prawn, I then dipped it into the green chili sauce, and it was delicious. The prawn was juicy and meaty, and the sauce was spicy and salty. The manager who took our order, suggested we try the Rakhine style noodles, so I did resist. I decided to order the soup on the side, and the noodles came cold (which was a surprise to me at first), along with pieces of fish cake, a fish soup on the side, and garnished with sprigs of cilantro. It was quite tasty, but I think I would have liked it hot instead of cold. Moving on, I also ordered squid stir fried with garlic. There was so much garlic in the dish, and it was almost caramelized onto the squid, and blackened. It really kind of tasted like candied squid. It was quite tasty, but maybe a little one the sweet side for me. Probably the ultimate dish or our meal was the Rakhine style curry crab, a huge plate of crab stewed in a sour and spicy sauce. What I immediately loved about it was that it wasn’t oily at all. The curry sauce was thickened with an egg, and it had a wonderful sour and fresh flavor to it. Along with the crab, there were cucumbers, carrots, onions, and a few other assorted veggies. The crab was sweet and meaty, and the sauce went well with it. Finally, to wrap up our order, I decided to get a pomfret fish, curried in Rakhine spicy style. I had no idea how it was going to be, but it turned out to be one of my favorite dishes of the meal. The fish was first fried, and then topped in a curry sauce that was mostly tomato and onion based. It was salty, and so good. After all the food came I realized that I didn’t really order any vegetable dishes, I so decided to order a plate or Rakhine salad (not sure the exact name, but that’s what it was called on the menu). The salad was a combination of a vegetable like morning glory, plus lots of mushrooms, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. It was a wonderful vegetable dish to go with all the Myanmar seafood dishes. I fully enjoyed our meal at Minn Lan restaurant in Yangon. The food and the service was both wonderful, and I thought the prices were very good value. Even in Bangkok, for what we ordered, the price could have been double. Total price for everything - 20,000 Kyats ($20.13) Address: Parami Road, Yangon, Yangon Region, Myanmar Open hours: 11 am – 9 pm daily Music in this video is from AudioNetwork.com Thank you very much for watching this video, I hope you enjoyed it.

Allauddin's Briyani - MUST-EAT Singapore Indian Food at Tekka Centre!
 
07:09
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. Finally, the curry sauce that my plate of biryani was served with is what really elevated the plate to the next level. For a wonderful plate of chicken biryani in Singapore, head over to Allauddin's Chicken Biryani at Tekka Centre. -- MY WEBSITES: Singapore Travel Guide: http://migrationology.com/travel-guides/singapore/ Singapore Food Guide: http://migrationology.com/2016/01/singapore-food/ T-shirts available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Resources I use: http://migrationology.com/travel-resources/ Migrationology.com: http://migrationology.com/ EatingThaiFood.com: http://eatingthaifood.com/ TravelByYing.com: http://travelbyying.com/ SOCIAL MEDIA: Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Snapchat: @migrationology Thank you very much for watching this video! --

In this video recipe, you’re going to learn how to make an authentic Bangkok street food style of mango sticky rice. When you show up to a food party or a family gathering with a big pan of coconut milk sticky rice and a few kilos of juicy ripe yellow mangoes, you’re going to be the star of the party! Here are the ingredients you'll need for this recipe: For the sticky rice: 1 kg. Thai sticky rice (ข้าวเหนียว) 800 ml. coconut cream (หัวกะทิ) 150 g. sugar (น้ำตาลทราย) 1 tsp. salt (เกลือ) For the toppings: 200 ml. coconut cream (หัวกะทิ) 1/3 tsp. salt (เกลือ) Sweet yellow mangoes (มะม่วงนำ้ดอกไม้) 100 g. yellow mung beans (ถั่วเหลือง) - optional Make sure you watch this entire video for all the steps and methods of making this mango sticky rice, and also be sure to go to the full blog post for more details (http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2016/04/thai-mango-sticky-rice-recipe/). But overall, it’s a very easy recipe to make. You first need to rinse and soak the rice, to remove all of the starch from the sticky rice. This will make it cook and look better when it’s served. Once you’ve soaked the rice for 6 hours, steam it for about 15 minutes, and then set aside. To prepare the coconut cream, cook 800 ml with sugar and salt, stirring gently until the sugar is fully dissolved, and the coconut cream comes to a boil - then immediately remove and start to assemble the rice. Put the fresh sticky rice into a mixing bowl, and start adding in, slowly by slowly, the coconut cream. Mix it in, until you’ve finished all the coconut cream into the rice, and you should have a consistency that’s kind of like a grain filled pudding. The sticky rice is now ready. For the toppings, you’ll need to take the remaining coconut cream, cook it on low heat with salt, bring to a boil, and then set it aside for a topping. Lastly, dry fry the mung beans on a low heat to toast them and make them crispy for another common topping (this is optional for this recipe but common in Thailand). The last part of making Thai mango sticky rice is to assemble everything together. Put a portion of the sweet sticky rice on a plate, peel and slice a mango to go right on top, sprinkle with a handful of crispy mung beans, and serve with the extra coconut cream on top. That’s all for this recipe, it’s pretty easy to make, and it’s one of the most common and most loved Thai desserts! -- FULL RECIPE: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2016/04/thai-mango-sticky-rice-recipe/ MY WEBSITES: Migrationology.com: http://migrationology.com/ EatingThaiFood.com: http://eatingthaifood.com/ TravelByYing.com: http://travelbyying.com/ T-shirts & Food Guides: https://migrationology.com/store/ Resources: http://migrationology.com/travel-resources/ SOCIAL MEDIA: Snapchat: @migrationology Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Thank you very much for watching this video! --
