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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 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.

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!

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

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

The display of ducks hanging over the grill was enough to force me to go straight to the restaurant without even thinking about it. We got there early in order to film some of the ducks before they opened - and I’m glad we arrived early because they were all so nice and showed us the entire process of how they make the duck curry. The ducks and meats are smoked, then chopped up into bite sized pieces, then cooked in a spicy coconut milk curry called Masak Lemak Cili Padi. One of the key herbal ingredients is turmeric leaf. If you’re looking for some of the best Malaysian food in Kuala Lumpur (it’s actually just outside of KL), go straight to Itik Salai Masthar, it will blow your taste buds! Total price - 50 RM ($12.15) for everything MUSIC: https://goo.gl/HwVjdo CAMERA GEAR I used to make this video (these are affiliate links): Main camera: http://amzn.to/2sV0XQO Main lens: http://amzn.to/2szLZNf 2nd lens: http://amzn.to/2EjBeEg Microphone: http://amzn.to/2rBKD3z Drone: http://amzn.to/2CrtAHz FOLLOW: Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Thank you for watching!

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

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

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

Although some say that their fame has made them not as good as they previously were, I still think it’s an amazing place with an action packed street food atmosphere that you need to try when you’re in Jakarta. I watched them making this Indonesian street food specialty and rather than normal fried rice with is dry fried in a wok, this is actually almost more like a biryani. The meat is cooked in a curry like sauce, before a huge amount of rice is added. The rice was very fragrant with lots of cinnamon and spices added. The meat, some of it was quite tender, while other pieces were a little grizzly, but had wonderful meaty flavor. When you’re in Jakarta and looking for a legendary Indonesian street food stall, Nasi Goreng Kambing Kebon Sirih is a great place to go for nasi goreng kambing (goat fried rice).

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

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

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

Hamzaev - Head of Marketing and Promotion of Uzbekistan Tourism. Check out Bekruz: https://goo.gl/M14aZW Uzbekistan Day 3: Tashkent to Samarkand - Food Road Trip Uzbekistan! On Day 3 we packed up in Tashkent, and made our way driving to Samarkand, one of the most historically significant cities in all of Uzbekistan, and Central Asia. But this is not the Samarkand food and history tour yet, this is the the journey to get there, which involved some incredible food stops along the way. Chinoz Fish Market - One of my favorite Uzbek meals of the trip was at the fish bazaar on the way to Samarkand. There are a series of restaurants to choose from, located just a stone's throw from one of the biggest rivers in the country. You choose your fish, it was carp, then she hacked it into small pieces, and deep fried it to a crisp. But the real unique aspect of this style of Uzbek fried fish was that she took garlic in water, and tossed it all over the fried fish right out of the oil. Something I’ve never seen before, and it was quite fascinating to see. Fish was great. Total price - 144,000 UZS ($17.76) Melons Stop - Melons are native to Central Asia and they are naturally some of the sweetest and some of the best tasting in the world. They were for sure the sweetest best tasting melons I’ve ever had in my life. Afsona Jizzax Somsa - Next stop on this Uzbekistan food road trip was to eat a giant somsa (samosa). Now you have probably already seen that you can’t really go a day in Uzbekistan without eating a somsa, and that’s a good thing because they are delicious. But these are super sized, filled with ½ kg. Of mutton and onions, and cooked in the tandoori oven. To eat these speciality somsa you add in some type of oil and tomato sauce. Samarkand, Uzbekistan - Finally in the evening we arrived to Samarkand, and just along the highway we caught a glimpse of the mighty building and history of the city. Samarkand Restaurant - Food here was alright. We ordered a sharing kebab tray. Total price - 227,000 ($28) Thank you for watching Uzbekistan Day 3!

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

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

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!

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.

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!

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

E. Pellicci in London is a fantastic little restaurant where you can order a range of dishes, including a delicious English breakfast. Read my article here: http://migrationology.com/2014/06/e-pellicci-london/ When I was in London, one morning, I decided to go over to a restaurant known as E. Pellicci, on the East side of the city, located along Bethnel Green road. I went there having really no idea what to expect, other than I knew that I wanted to try their full English breakfast - other than that, I knew just about nothing about them. As soon as we entered E. Pellicci we were warmny greeted by the friendly staff - it wasn't just another greeting - it was warm and welcoming. The restaurant was classic and friendly, small and homely. The menu was actually bigger than I had expected, there was a full range of both English and Italian dishes to choose from. I actually wanted to go crazy ordering everything, but then I remembered that I had come specifically for the full English breakfast, so that's what I ended up choosing. However, before getting my breakfast, I ordered a cup of black coffee, which was very good as well. For Pellicci's Full English, you could get a choice of either toast or fried bread, and since I had never had the fried bread before, that's what I decided to go for. The breakfast came with sausage, bacon, egg, tomatoes, and mushrooms, and though I didn't realize it at the time, I could have gotten it with more things on my plate like beans and black pudding. Somehow I missed that on my order, but looking back, I should have ordered those accompanying sides as well, to make it a more complete full English breakfast. That being said, I was still very happy with what I ordered. The full English breakfast came, and it was everything I had hoped for. The meat including the sausage and bacon was great quality, and extremely tasty, the egg was fried perfectly, and the mushrooms and tomatoes complemented everything well. The fried bread was like a piece of bread deep fried in oil, so it was a bit on the greasy side, but it sure was crispy. Overall, I probably would have chosen toast, had I had another chance to eat at E. Pellicci. After we polished off our breakfast and were on our way out of E. Pellicci, one of the owners, ran out the door and said, "you guys forgot a piece of our bread pudding," and she kindly handed us a little baggie with a foil wrapped piece of her grandmothers' recipe bread pudding. It was not too sweet, but just nicely flavored and custardy in texture. E. Pellicci restaurant in London serves a great full English breakfast, and I'm sure the other dishes are delicious too. But along with the great food, the service and the attitudes of the owners and staff were so amazing, so friendly and welcoming. It's food and restaurant experiences like these, that make me want continue eating and exploring food around the world. Had I been in London longer, I would have eaten at E. Pellicci many more times. If you visit London, you should include E. Pellicci on your itinerary. E. Pellicci Restaurant -- London, England Address: 332 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 0AG, United Kingdom Open hours: 7 am -- 4 pm on Monday -- Saturday (closed on Sunday) Price: You'll spend about 5 -- 8 GBP per person for a great meal How to get there: I walked from the Shoreditch area of London, however you could also take the Underground to Bethnel Green station, and E. Pellicci is just a short walk from there.

In order to get the largest size, Puppup had to actually call the restaurant to order them one month in advance. If you just walk in you can get 400 or 600 gram shrimp probably, but the 800 gram single shrimp are hard to come by these days in Thailand. Kui Mong (กุ่ยหมง) is very well known among Thais, mainly because most restaurant grill their river shrimp, but Kui Mong (กุ่ยหมง) is the first to deep fry them, and serve them in a ridiculously delicious oily shrimp sauce. The sauce is one of the greatest things you’ll ever taste on rice, combined with more chili garlic sauce and an alternating bite of succulent river shrimp. They owners family are very nice, but unfortunately since it’s such a secret recipe, we weren’t able to see the cooking - so that’s why this is just a short extra Thai food video - only showing the massive deep fried Thai river shrimp and eating them. Price - 2,000 THB ($63.44), per 800 grams shrimp Kui Mong (กุ่ยหมง) Address: Khok Khram, Bang Pla Ma District, Suphan Buri 72150, Thailand (Google map: https://goo.gl/maps/1hmdXEXFddr) People featured in this video: David (The Hungry Tourist): https://www.instagram.com/the.hungry.tourist/ Puppup: https://www.instagram.com/puppup_foodlife/ Abram: https://www.instagram.com/ramen_beast/ Sinan: https://www.instagram.com/tatdedektifi/ Thank you for watching this video.

Glad you love Malaysian street food too! Get my free street food guide here: http://migrationology.com/41-irresistible-meals-guide/ Malaysian street food is amazingly delicious and Kuala Lumpur is full of food everywhere you look! The first dish in the video is known as Nasi Campur, a truly delightful Malaysian street food that consists of a giant plate of rice accompanied by an assortment of various side dishes. I chose fish curry, chili tofu and a bunch of other delicious vegetables and garnished. Next I stopped at a famous place near Little India in Kuala Lumpur to eat an Ikan Bakar grilled fish. It was grilled in some kind of chili sauce and served with a limey chili sauce that was absolutely spectacular. When it began to rain, I decided to drink a cup of milk tea teh tarik, one of the most famous beverages in Malaysia. The next meal was at Hameed's a restaurant specializing in Indian style Malaysian street food known as Nasi Kandar. Along with a plate of rice covered in curries, I aslo ordered a plate of biryani, and a side of tandoori chicken and plan naan. I couldn't leave Kuala Lumpur without eating the absolute mos comforting Malaysian street food: Nasi Lemak. After searching around, I finally found it at an outdoors restaurant.

Warning: Don't try this BBQ chicken method at home, unless you have a good fire-proof location - then it would be really cool to try. Som tam, gai yang, is the popular and widely available Thai food combination of green papaya salad and grilled chicken… but we wanted to do something and eat something out of the ordinary! Along with the help of Sonny from Best Ever Food Review Show, we ate some extraordinary versions of both grilled chicken and Thai green papaya salad, both not what you’d find at a typical restaurant. The chicken, a very traditional, rare to find style of cooking, and the green papaya salad, a little more extreme than others. Uncle Peen Baked Chicken (ไก่อบฟางลุงพิน) - It’s easily the most unique style of grilled, or more like baked or smoked, version of chicken I’ve seen in Thailand. To make the hay smoked chicken (ไก่อบฟาง) uncle arranged the chickens on upright stakes, put oil drum lids over them, filled the trough with dry rice hay, and lit that on fire… twice. The result was one of the most juicy tender grilled chickens I’ve ever tasted. It was amazing. Price - 180 THB ($5.46) per chicken Som Tam Jay Gai (ส้มตำเจ้ไก่ ดอนเมือง) - Next to complete our combination of not your ordinary grilled chicken and green papaya salad we drove to Don Muang to eat at Som Tam Jay Gai (ส้มตำเจ้ไก่ ดอนเมือง), a restaurant originally from Udon Thani. There were so friendly there, and the main dish we ordered was tam code mua (ตำโครตมั่ว), the crazy spicy giant plate of green papaya salad with everything in it. We both suffered and cried tears of joy, but it was so much fun! Total price - 380 THB ($11.52) Again, go check out Sonny (Best Ever Food Review Show): https://goo.gl/ugvUcy He produces amazing professional quality food travel videos.

Mango kulfi and other amazing Indian street foods at http://migrationology.com/ When I was in Delhi, India, my main goal was to search out and eat as many Indian street foods and interesting things as I possibly could. After doing some searches, I finally came across Kuremal Mahavir Prasad Kulfi Wale, a long standing ice cream vendor in the alleys of Old Delhi. Just a short walk from the Chawri Bazar metro station, down an ancient looking lane is the sleepy shop. I came to Kuremal Mahavir Prasad Kulfi Wale to mostly sample something known as mango kulfi, which is the equivalent of a mango ice cream or gelato that's Indian style. At this particular shop in Delhi, they first take the finest mangos, which are normally alphonso in variety, hollow out the seed from the middle, and then fill the center with a special mixture of cream and spices. The mango is then covered with a thick layer of clay and allowed to freeze until turning into a solid brick. When you order the mango kulfi, it is then removed from the freezer and the vendor hammers off the clay from the top of the mango. Using nothing short of a hacksaw blade, the vendor slices of the skin from the mango. When that's all done, he slices the mango into thin bite sized pieces and puts them all the on the plate. Mango kulfi at Kuremal Mahavir Prasad Kulfi Wale is a real treat. It's frozen so hard, and the delicious mango goes so well with the thick Indian ice cream that's lightly flavored with a mixture of spices that includes cardamom. Delhi, India, is full of delicious Indian street food, but after a long day of walking around the streets of Old Delhi, there was nothing more satisfying than a freezing cold plate of mango kulfi! Open Hours: Afternoon /evening is the best time Price: It cost me 200 INR ($3.64) - I'm not sure if I got ripped off, but even if I did, it was really good. Address: Kucha Pati Ram, Bazar Sita Ram, Delhi, 110006 How to get there: Take the Metro to Chawri Bazar, exit at gate 3, and immediately cross the street and go down Sita Ram Bazar lane. Take your second right at Kucha Pati Ram, an alley marked by a big fruit stall. Walk down the alley for 200 - 300 meters and you'll come to the place on your right hand side.

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.

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!

Subscribe for more videos► http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe T-shirts for sale here► https://migrationology.com/store/ Just across the street from Central Market in Phnom Penh, you’ll find an amazing local spot for lunch that serves Cambodian flaming beef in a cow shaped pan. They light the cast iron skillets on fire, and then toss in some beef, seasoning, onions, eggs, and finish it off with some sauces and green onions. One of the best things about the dish is watching them being made and the lady that makes them could probably do it with her eyes closed, she’s done it so many times. You eat the flaming beef pan and juices with rice, and it goes perfectly together, especially with some extra added chilies and chili sauce. We ate here on a spur of the moment, just walking by in Phnom Penh and looking for something delicious to eat, and it turned out to be a must eat in Phnom Penh. Not sure of the name of this place in English, but here’s the Khmer: ភោជនីយដ្ឋាន បាយគោដុត Address: Preah Chey Chetha St. (118), Phnom Penh, Cambodia (On the corner of Street 61 and Street 118) Total price - 30,500 KHR ($7.36) for 5 pans and side dishes Puffed rice - 2,000 KHR (0.48) -- Music in this video: Not This Time 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!

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

Watch - Extreme Thai Street Food: https://youtu.be/XxDTDCfXgEw Subscribe http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe for 2 new videos every week T-shirts and caps: https://goo.gl/6WdK1l One of the best sushi omakase restaurants in Bangkok is Umi, and I went to their Gaysorn Village location (https://www.facebook.com/Umigaysorn/). A group of my friends own the restaurant and they had just received a fresh piece of tuna and wanted to do some tasting. It was just just a top level sushi omakase (served piece by piece, chef’s choice) experience in Bangkok, but it was a tuna learning experience for me. Of all the times I’ve had sushi, I didn’t know much about the tuna. But this time, I learned about the origin, the quality, how it was wild caught, and even tasting the difference between completely fresh and aged, which gives it a different umami sensation. For out omakase this day, most of the sushi was based on tuna, and Umi Gaysorn Village is aiming to focus on wild tuna, but we also had a few other Japanese food delicacies including shirako (cod sperm) and plenty of incredible uni (sea urchin). It was an incredible meal. Umi serves one of the best Japanese food - sushi omakase especially focusing on tuna - in Bangkok, Thailand. Umi Gaysorn Village (there’s also Umi Sukhumvit 49): https://www.facebook.com/Umigaysorn/ Address: Unit 1F-10/1, 1st Floor Gaysorn, 999 Ploenchit Road, Kwaeng Lumpini, Khet Pathumwan, Bangkok, Thailand 10330 Open hours: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM, 6:00 PM - 11:00 AM Phone: 089 899 4949 MUSIC: https://goo.gl/HwVjdo CAMERA GEAR I used to make this video (these are affiliate links): Main camera: http://amzn.to/2sV0XQO Main lens: http://amzn.to/2szLZNf 2nd lens: http://amzn.to/2EjBeEg Microphone: http://amzn.to/2rBKD3z Drone: http://amzn.to/2CrtAHz FOLLOW: Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Thank you for watching!
