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

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

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

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

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

16:28
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.

Thai Fried Rice Recipe with Shrimp (Khao Pad Goong ข้าวผัดกุ้ง)
 
05:21
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.

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

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

Eating at Broadway Market in London, England
 
05:03
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.

Authentic Thai larb recipe (larb moo ลาบหมู) - Thai Recipes
 
05:08
Experience authentic Thai flavors in this Thai larb recipe (larb moo ลาบหมู). Get the recipe details here: http://wp.me/p4a4F7-2ff Thai larb, often made with minced pork (larb moo ลาบหมู), is one of the most popular Thai street food dishes. Though on the streets of Thailand it's most of the time made with pork, you can also find it made with minced chicken, or even minced duck. I also like versions of larb made with roasted catfish, known as larb pla duk. But anyway, for the Thai larb recipes I'll be using minced pork, but feel free to substitute whatever other meat you'd like. Even mushrooms or tofu works well. Thai larb is a meat salad dish. Along with the meat you choose, you mix in some fish sauce, lots of lime juice, chili flakes, shallots, and some herbs to freshen things up. In Thailand when you eat larb it's normally an Isaan dish, so it's often eaten together with green papaya salad (http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/01/thai-green-papaya-salad-recipe/) and eaten along with Thai sticky rice. I love the flavors in this dish, and especially love how the meat is so refreshing and flavorful. As long as you have all the ingredients on hand, and as long as the "khao kua" or toasted sticky rice is prepared in advance, this Thai larb recipe is extremely easy to prepare and should only take a few minutes to make. You begin with cooking the minced pork, and from there you don't need to cook anything else, you just start to mix in all the dressing ingredients. Again, like with all Thai recipes and cooking, be sure to taste test plenty of times until you have your larb tasting exactly the way you want it to taste - I especially love spicy and sour. Ok, here is your ingredients list for this authentic Thai larb recipe: About 5 tablespoons of uncooked Thai sticky rice (this is going to be toasted and used as an ingredient in the dish) 300 grams (1 pound) minced pork ½ - 1 tablespoon of chili flakes (prik bon) 1/8 tablespoon of sugar (just a pinch) ½ tablespoon of fish sauce 1 - 2 limes (I used the juice from about 1.5 limes) 3 - 4 small shallots (Thai shallots are only about the size of grapes, so if you have bigger shallots just use however much you want) A few leaves of culantro, which is a little like cilantro, if you can't find any, you don't need to use it 3 - 5 spring onions (green onions) About 20 leaves or so of fresh mint I am creating these Thai street food recipes as a resource for authentic Thai cooking - and by authentic I mean real everyday meals and food that you could eat when you're in Thailand. If you follow this recipe you'll be tasting the same food that you could get on the streets of Bangkok or Chiang Mai. Enjoy this recipe, and be sure to give this video a quick thumbs up, and let me know if you have any questions in the comments below.

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

Bangkok to Taipei - DELICIOUS First Taiwanese Street Food Meal and Travel (Day 1)!
 
15:10
►Check out my Taipei Travel Guide for Food Lovers: https://goo.gl/PbAuzQ ►Subscribe to my videos: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe This is the vlog of Day 1 of our Taiwan trip (stay tuned for all 12 days of vlogs). We woke up early in the morning in Bangkok and headed to Don Muaeng Airport. We checked into our flight via Tiger Air that offers a directly flight at a pretty good rate from Bangkok to Taipei. Everything went smoothly and our flight arrived on time. They didn’t serve any food on our airplane, but luckily as I was doing some work, my wife Ying went and bought some Subway for the airplane ride. So while I didn’t have airplane food this time, I did have Subway on an airplane. We landed in Taipei, Taiwan, my first time to ever visit Taiwan in the early afternoon, and I had little clue how we were going to get from the airport to the center of Taipei and then on to our hotel. We ended up walking down stairs where we caught a shuttle bus from Taoyuan International Airport for 30 TWD to the Taoyuan train station in order to connect with the Taiwan high speed rail that would take us into the center of Taipei. From Taoyuan railway station we took the high speed rail which cost 165 TWD and in about 20 minutes we arrived at Taipei Main station, which is the major hub of transportation in the center of Taipei. From there we caught the local Metro to Ximen station, where our hotel was booked. After wandering around for a little while and getting a bit lost, we finally arrived into our hotel, called Go Sleep Hotel and the Xining branch, located right within the busy shopping and cultural district of Ximending in Taipei. We arrive to the hotel at about 6 pm almost and we were all very hungry and wanted to have our first meal in Taipei… but I had no idea what we were going to eat. After walking around Ximending for a few minutes we sat down at the nearest restaurant we could find that was serving local Taiwanese food. Although I didn’t really know what we were ordering, the owner of the restaurant was very nice and after pointing to a few dishes, she kindly brought them to our table. Our first meal in Taipei, Taiwan was a success. From there we just walked around Ximending for a while, enjoying the atmosphere and sampling a few snacks along the way. There was so much food in this area, that is was crazy, so much to eat! Thank you for watching this Taipei travel guide video vlog from Bangkok to Taipei. This is Day 1 of our Taiwan travel adventure.

Thai green papaya salad recipe (som tam ส้มตำ) - Thai Recipes
 
05:14
Click here http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/01/thai-green-papaya-salad-recipe/ for the full Thai green papaya salad recipe (som tam ส้มตำ) ingredients and cooking instructions. Thai green papaya salad, known better as "som tam" (ส้มตำ) is one of the most popular Thai street food dishes available. Though it's an Isaan, northeastern Thai dish, som tam can be found throughout the entire country, and is widely popular in Bangkok where you'll find it being served at just about every street corner in the entire city. So today, in this video, I'll be showing you how to make this Thai green papaya salad recipe. There's actually no cooking involved in this Thai recipe, and as long as you can get the ingredients fresh, you'll be able to make this salad and it will taste wonderful. Probably the hardest part of making som tam would be combining the exactly right combination of dressing ingredients together - it's a ratios and a balance thing - and it's also up to your own personal taste buds the way you like it. I personally enjoy my Thai green papaya salad spicy and sour. But many people like it less spicy and sour, and more sweet. Even when you order your Thai green papaya salad on the streets of Thailand, the vendor will occasionally reach in with the spoon and motion to give you a sample so you can taste if it's the way you like it, and if not, you can tell them to add more chili, more fish sauce, or anything else to make it the way you like it. So make sure you taste test! Ok, so anywhere, this recipe makes just one big plate of som tam, which you can share with others along with other dishes for a full meal, or you can eat the whole thing yourself. Thai green papaya salad is a very common lunchtime dish in Bangkok, often eaten with a skewer of grilled chicken and a bag of sticky rice for starch. Here are the ingredients: 2 cloves of garlic 5 Thai chillies 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts 1 tablespoon fish sauce ½ - 1 tablespoon palm sugar 1 - 2 limes 1 tablespoon of dried shrimp (optional) 1 - 2 small tomatoes (in Thailand I used sida tomatoes, but you could probably use roma tomatoes) 1 green papaya Long-beans or green beans Green cabbage Thai sweet basil Make sure you check out the Thai green papaya salad recipe for further ingredients and instructions: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/01/thai-green-papaya-salad-recipe/ Thai recipes: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/thai-recipes/ Free Thai street food guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/free-bangkok-dollar-menu-guide/ Eating Thai Food Guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/eating-thai-food-guide/ Bangkok 101 Guide: http://migrationology.com/ebook-101-things-to-do-in-bangkok/ Music in this video is Opium by Igor Dvorkin Thank you so much for watching this food and travel video by Mark Wiens.

NEW Seoul Travel Guide for Food Lovers► https://migrationology.com/travel-guides/seoul-korea/ Stay tuned for new videos from this Seoul travel guide and food series on Sunday and Wednesday at 8 PM Bangkok (GMT+7). Thank you for watching! My wife Ying and I, along with her sisters decided to take a trip to Seoul, South Korea from Bangkok. We boarded the late night flight in Bangkok and landed bright and early first thing in the morning at Seoul Incheon International Airport. After grabbing our bags, we bought T-money cards for transportation, and then we caught the train metro from the airport to Seoul Station. It’s very easy to use and it’s pretty affordable too at just 3,250 Won ($2.73) per person for the ride. The train ride from Incheon airport to Seoul Station takes about one hour. After arriving to Seoul Station, we put our bags into the lockers provided and we were all very hungry. Just outside Seoul Station, we just walked around and I saw a restaurant that specializes in a Korean food called gamjatang, and we decided to eat there immediately. We ordered the full family sizes hot pot of gamjatang, which turned out to be extremely delicious, and it’s one of my personal favorite Korean foods. Gamjatang is a pork bone and potato stew, and we got the version that included kimchi as well. It was incredibly good. After doing a little bit of sightseeing, we then headed to check into our Airbnb. There was a little bit of a surprise when we checked in, but luckily it all worked out fine in the end and it was a pretty good place to stay. It was a great first day in Seoul, and traveling from Bangkok to Seoul.

The flatbread all begins with ball of greasy dough that's slapped and expanded until it becomes paper thin. Then the vendor folds it up and throws it onto the hot griddle to cook, all while dousing it in oil and adding butter to the mix. This ensures that the roti canai comes out nice and golden brown on the outside and a little gooey and delicious on the inside. What I love most about the Malaysian style roti is that it's served along with a few sides of dipping curry sauce that make it extremely flavorful. While it's not the healthiest of all breakfast in Malaysia, it sure does taste amazing. Also at this street food stall I order something known as a roti telur, which is basically the same dough wrapped up with an fried egg in the middle. The result is a creation that's even better - a mouthwatering gooey and crispy bread that greasy and busting with flavor with a swift dip in the curry sauce. Nothing works better to wash down roti, than a fresh cup of brewed teh tarik, or just a milk teas. It's similar to chai and is just black tea made with thick milk so it's extremely milky and creamy. This particular version was made by a guy who tossed it from cup to cup to create a lovely creamy foam on the top. It was quite sweet, but contrasted so nicely with the roti that I couldn't resist a second cup. So when you are in Malaysia and in need of breakfast, you do have plenty of options, and one of those being a tasty roti canai! I know you'll enjoy it!

For the molcajete caliente, they put it on the hot plate, added the beef, onions, salsa until it boiled, cheese, avocado and cactus. They serve it to you flaming hot - literally lava salsa. It was every bit as good as it looked, and it remained hot for our entire meal. This was one of the best sit down, family style restaurant meals I had in Mexico City.

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

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

Indian Mango Lassi - The Best Mango Smoothie I've Ever Had in Kolkata, India!
 
02:10
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!

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.

Easy Thai Tom Yum Goong Soup Recipe (วิธีทำต้มยำกุ้ง)
 
04:01
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)!

Darjeeling, India - Travel Guide and Attractions
 
03:48
Check out my Darjeeling travel guide here - http://migrationology.com/2013/05/darjeeling-travel-guide-things-you-need-to-know/ | Have Facebook? https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Darjeeling, India, is located in the very Northern part of the West Bengal state. Coming from Kolkata, it's hard to believe that Darjeeling is actually in the same state, it's such a vastly different place. In order to get to Darjeeling, India, it's easiest to take the train to the nearest station which is located at New Jalpaiguri (known just as NJP by the train code). There's little to do in NJP, but from right outside the train station you can then board to a shared jeep and for 200 Rupees, you can take the jeep straight to Darjeeling. The jeep normally takes about 4 hours to reach the town and they will often stop for a few bathroom and snack breaks. The ride to Darjeeling is very windy and very uphill into the mountains, so if you get sick easily, be sure to take motion sickness medication. You will have some amazing views on the road! Darjeeling, India, is an old hill station that offers beautiful views of the Himalayas. It's a small town and unlike other huge Indian cities, it's much quieter, peaceful, and it's a very nice place to just explore on foot (though not all the attractions are accessible on foot). So after arriving in Darjeeling, I first set off to explore the Chowrasta Square, which is a non-vehicle area with shops restaurants and cafes. There are also many trails leading from the square to other parts of the town. I explored a few of the footpaths leading in various directions to discover Buddhist Tibetan temples and other residential areas. Probably the most famous thing about Darjeeling, India, is its production of tea; It's one of the most famous places in the world for tea. The climate, elevation, and rich Himalayan soil make it prime growing conditions. Surrounding Darjeeling you'll have a chance to see rolling tea fields and if you have time you can even visit a tea farm such as Happy Valley. Don't forget to buy plenty of tea in Darjeeling before you depart. At the top of the main hill in Darjeeling is the Mahakal Temple, one of the most famous Hindu / Buddhist temples in the city. The temple is fully decorated by Tibetan colorful flags and there are lots and lots of monkeys, that can at times be aggressive. You can also walk around the area and explore the cave. Just be careful of the scammers in this area that try to ask you for donations. Another one of the most famous attractions in Darjeeling, India, is the Darjeeling Himalayan railroad which is better known as the Toy Train. It's an old locomotive train that runs of burning coal. You can go to the railroad station and purchase tickets daily for the joy ride, which is a 1.5 hour circuit that takes you on a leisurely ride from Darjeeling to Ghoom, the highest elevation railroad station in all of India. The railroad is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Tibetan Refugee Self Help Center is a center for Tibetan refugees where you'll find handicrafts and other things to purchase. When I went it was quite quiet and there actually wasn't much to do there. Other really popular attractions in Darjeeling, India, include the Himalayan Zoo and the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, which are located on the same compound and accessed with the same entrance ticket fee. The zoo was interesting and included a snow leopard and lots of red pandas. The mountaineering institute is a museum that houses many artifacts from Himalayan mountain climbing expeditions. While many choose to wake up and go to Tiger Hill for the sunrise of the beautiful Himalayan mountain range, I was so cold that I didn't wake up and just stayed on the balcony of my hotel to view the gorgeous sunrise over the mountains. Darjeeling, India, is a beautiful little town and you'll have a great and relaxing time when you travel there!

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.

It sounded like exactly the type of place I need to go. So one day we drove down for lunch. Immediately I loved the atmosphere of the market. They have a short but everything you need menu, and most dishes are on the Japanese food side - with donburi bowls, and they also have some Hawaiian style poke. But as I found out, even their poke is more Japanese style, and amazing. Chu-toro donburi with uni - First dish I tried was the chu-toro donburi with uni. Chu-toro is the medium fatty tuna with sea urchin on the side. It was as fresh as possible, and absolutely delicious. Grilled king salmon belly - Next I couldn’t resist the grilled king salmon belly which was magically fatty and bursting with fatty juices. It was so good. Hawaiian limu poke - Finally, I also couldn’t resist a tub of Hawaiian limu poke, my personal favorite style of poke - cubes of ahi (tuna) with limu, which is a type of sea algae that has an amazing crisp texture. Their poke was insanely delicious. Total price - $44.93 (Ying also had miso salmon, not included in video) Maguro Brothers Hawaii in Chinatown, Honolulu, Hawaii, is well worth seeking out when you’re in Honolulu. Not only is the food top quality, but the service is friendly, and you’ll love the market dining environment.

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

Thank you very much for watching, and if you enjoyed it, remember to click "Like" and "Subscribe!" Thank you! One of the absolute best reasons to visiti Malaysia is for its abundance of outstanding cuisine. And while local Malay and Chinese food are both insanely good, the Indian food is equally amazing. In Kuala Lumpur, much of the Indian food originates from the South of India, and much of it has Chettinad or Tamil Nadu influence. Banana leaf, as this meal is known throughout Kuala Lumpur, is basically a pile of rice sitting on top of a banana leaf that surrounded by a variety of vegetable curries and then one can also order meat or fish dishes on the side as well. The vegetarian curries change by the day, whatever fresh ingredients are available at the time are used. This particular day, there was an excellent beat curry, daal lentils, and some sort of okra curry. Have you ever gone to a restaurant that was so good, you had to eat there multiple times in a row? That's exactly what happened to me at Vishalatchi Food and Catering Sou Indian Food restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. I had heard about it, and decided to go on a food excursion to go check it out. My first meal so so extraordinarily that the next day I returned fro breakfast and ended up eating nearly the same thing. I also returned again the next day for the same awesome feat, this place is literally that good! For this meal, I was greeted by the awesome South Indian staff, and when I began to film, they all were curious and wanted me to take their photos, it was great! As for South Indian food, it's amazing. Along with the vegetarian side dishes at Vishalatchi, the meat and seafood is great. After long contemplation I finally decided on a bowl of dry fish curry known as fish puttu. It was nicely spiced and went extremely well with the pile of rice and other dishes. Another thing I really enjoyed was the bowl of yoghurt provided along with the meal. It just kind of brought all the South Indian food together in a harmony of flavors. The entire meal was so good, I simply could barely even believe it. For most of the meal, I honestly had to just close my eyes and savor every single bite! Another bonus of eating banana leaf meals like this in Malaysia is that you can basically eat as much rice and vegetarian dishes as you want - they will keep refilling your leaf until you surrender. If you do visit Kuala Lumpur this is one of the ultimate must eat at restaurants in the city, I know you'll love it! Vishalatchi Food and Catering Prices: I paid 13 RM for this meal and that includes rice and vegetarian sides (as much as you want), and also the fish dish and a tea Address: 18 Jalan Scott, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lum 50470, Malaysia Here are some direction on how to get there: From KL Sentral, walk down Jalan Tun Sambanthan 4 and take a left on Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad. Then you need to take that until it curves to the left but keep straight until you get to Jalan Scott where you make a left. Vishalatchi Food and Catering is on your left hand side before you get to the Hindu Temple.

Pani Puri (Puchka) in Kolkata - One of The BEST Indian Street Food Snacks!
 
03:01
Pani puri, also called puchka in Kolkata, is one of the best Indian street food snacks. I loved snacking on them when I was in Kolkata, India. There are few Indian street foods more intriguing, tempting, and as popular as something known as pani puri. In Kolkata, they are known as puchka and in other parts of India they are referred to as golgappa, but they are all quite similar, and the most common name is just pani puri. These snacks are widely available in India, Pakistan, and Nepal. Puri is the world for a deep fried piece of dough, which in this case is a little hollow ball about the size of a golf ball. It's crispy like a chip. Pani is the Hindi word for water, so both together make up chips and water. Pani puri is available all over India, but in this Indian street food video, I'm on the streets of Kolkata for my first taste of a pani puri. As soon as I rolled up, the vendor first handed me a small bowl that was made from a leaf. The bowl was tiny, only able to hold a single pani puri at a single time. It was time to begin round one. The vendor began by grabbing a puri from his big stockpile, an entire tower of puris, and he then poked a hole in it with his thumb. He then added some masala spiced potatoes, a few spices and finally dipped into a bucket of water. Now it's not just plain water that fills the puris, in this case it was tamarind infused water including extra spices, onions, and cilantro. So after the pani puri (puchka) was completely assembled, the vendor then handed it to me by placing it in the small leaf bowl. Huddled around the vendor, I grabbed the puri, and plopped the entire combination of ingredients into my mouth in a single bite. You have to take a single bite, of the ingredients will all spill out. What greeted my mouth was an extremely delicious burst of crunchy was transformed into a flavorful gush of the spicy tamarind water. It was a culinary sensation like I'd never had before, a contrast of flavors and textures that really went well together. As soon as I had chewed down my first pani puri, the vendor was immediately ready with another fresh one, and placed it into my bowl again. It's important to eat pani puri one at a time so they don't get soggy from the water. I ate a round of five, though I wanted to stand there indefinitely and eat more and more. I mentioned above, pani puri is a favorite Indian street food, and it's available all over the country. There are a number of different variations and alterations of the snack, but the ones in Kolkata are normally filled with tamarind water that's salty and sour. If you are in Kolkata, be sure to take a wander around the New Market where you'll find all kinds of chaotic action including a ton of delicious street food.

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

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

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

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

Authentic Thai Grilled Fish Recipe (Pla Pao ปลาเผา) - Thai Recipes
 
06:51
Get all the details for this Thai grilled fish street food recipe (pla pao ปลาเผา) right here: http://wp.me/p4a4F7-2fu One of my favorite ways to eat a whole fish is by grilling it the Thai way. On the streets of Thailand you'll find pla pao (ปลาเผา), or Thai grilled / roasted fish, all over the places. It's a common meal, and especially goes well with a plate of som tam (green papaya salad) and a couple of baskets of fresh sticky rice. For this Thai grilled fish recipe (pla pao ปลาเผา), I made the two most common types of fish which you'll find on the streets of Thailand: a a red hybrid tilapia known in Thai as pla tabtim (ปลาทับทิม), and a snakehead fish known as a pla chon (ปลาช่อน). Both of them are common and widely found in Thailand, but most of the time, and especially when I make it myself, I overall prefer the pla tabtim. In the US when I went to the Asian supermarket, I also found both of these fish available, so hopefully you'll be able to find them wherever you are. You could also substitute this recipe for other types of firm whole fish. If you buy your fish from the butcher, you should try to have them (or you can do it back at home) remove the gills and guts from the gills, and not cut open the belly - that way you can stuff the fish with the extra ingredients without everything falling out the bottom of the fish. Another tip for this recipe is that if you can keep the fish with the scales on, that's better for the grilling process. So keep the scales on Along with the fish itself, one of the most important components of a Thai pla pao is the seafood sauce, which in Thai is known as nam jim seafood. The sauce is pretty simple to make, but it has so much incredible flavor from the garlic, chilies, and fish sauce. For the fish 2 whole fish (also 1 fish works fine, just reduce ingredients) ½ kilo of salt (big grain if possible) 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour About 1 tablespoon of water 4 - 6 stalks lemongrass small handful of kaffir lime leaves For the sauce seafood 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice 3 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons fish sauce 1 tablespoon sugar ½ teaspoon of salt 15 cloves of garlic 20 Thai bird chilies (prik kee noo suan พริกขี้หนูสวน) This Thai grilled fish street food recipe (pla pao ปลาเผา) should take about 15 or 20 minutes to get everything ready, and then it will need to be on the grill cooking for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how hot your fire is, and how big your fish are. Enjoy this Thai street food recipe, and let me know how yours turns out! Music in this video courtesy of Audio Network.

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

Exotic Fruit: Salak - Snake Fruit!
 
02:00
Here's my article about Salak (Snake Fruit): http://migrationology.com/2012/07/snake-fruit-salak/ and also check out my travel and street food website here http://migrationology.com/ There are a lot of exotic and awesome fruit varieties in Southeast Asia. The fruit just never seems to get boring - and there's such a great diversity available, depending on the season. Throughout the year you'll find things like mango, pineapple, bananas, rose apples, oranges, and mangosteen, and some other exotic fruits like durian, jackfruit, cempedak, and of course, salak, which is commonly known is English as snake fruit. The reason salak is called snake fruit is because the skin is remarkably similar to a snake - it really does appear to have scales and is dark brown in color. What is snake fruit? Salak is actually native to Indonesia, but nowadays it can be found all over southeast Asia and even other parts of the world. It grows from the base of certain palm trees in clusters of about 20 or so of the fruit pieces in one clump. The fruit is picked and can be eaten just straight out of the outer wrapper or it can be served in one of the many local sweet desserts. For myself, I prefer to eat snake fruit (salak), right out of the snake looking shell. For this video, I grabbed some of the fruit while at the Chow Kit Market in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. However, it's possible to eat snake fruit all over southeast Asia and I frequently eat it on the streets of Bangkok where vendors conveniently peel it and package in plastic bags so you can eat it on the go. What does salak taste like? Well, it kind of reminds me of a fermented apple. It's super juicy and is almost like alcoholic apple juice - that is if the snake fruit is really ripe and ready to eat. I think the flavor is wonderful. It's an exotic fruit, but I'm sure it would be quite appealing to most who give it a try. There is one catch to eating snake fruit, and if you read the article above you'll know what it is. But basically, just remember to eat that small white film that comes wrapped around each morsel of the fruit, don't peel it! Eat too many peeled fruits and you could face constipation consequences - go it?! Let's just say that I was in Indonesia eating snake fruit without knowing the consequences and though I ate about 25 pieces, I luckily overcame the force! Next time you see some snake fruit (salak), be sure to give it a try!

Just to make it clear, I did not pay for this meal, but all opinions and thoughts in the video are my own. The House on Sathorn - First of all, the House on Sathorn is one of the most beautiful preserved historical mansions in all of Bangkok, part of the W Hotel, and situated in the heart of the downtown financial district of Bangkok. It’s an amazing location and a gorgeous restored building that dates back to 1889. The Dining Room is the signature restaurant, which was listed as one of Asia’s 50 Best restaurants. Chef Fatih Tutak - Eating at The Dining Room was a chance to meet and interact with the amazing head Chef Fatih Tutak, originally from Turkey, but with experience cooking in some of the most renowned restaurants in the world throughout Asia and Europe. He’s a fascinating chef, and as soon as you meet him, you’ll know that his knowledge of food and passion is what shines. He was quick to tell me, he doesn’t serve fusion food, but Innovative Turkish cuisine. I ate their signature journey, a tasting omakase meal, all a progression of Turkish cuisine, but you could definitely tell the Chef used some Japanese techniques, included most notably in the presentation and sushi bar counter seating. The combination of the unique and creatives dishes, plus the amazing atmosphere, and Chef Fatih Tutak explaining each dish and the story behind it, all added up to make it one of the most memorable fine dining meals I’ve had in Bangkok.

Thai Boat Noodles in Bangkok at Victory Monument (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือ)
 
05:16
Go to http://migrationology.com/ for more travel and street food! Bangkok is a huge city, but the city comes together into a few central hubs, one of them being Victory Monument (อนุสาวรีย์ชัยสมรภูมิ). Victory Monument is one of the transportation centers of Bangkok, a lively roundabout that always flowing with traffic of all kinds and bustling with people. In Thailand, as in much of the world as well, where there are lots of people, there will be lots of street shopping and lots of street food as well. Not only can you catch a Bangkok bus, van, taxi, motorbike taxi or the BTS skytrain, you can walk around the entire circumference of Victory Monument (อนุสาวรีย์ชัยสมรภูมิ) and snack all the way around. In this video first I stop at a stand selling all kinds of dried and salted fruit. Be sure to try the dry grapes, they are intensely sour and salty on the outside making them a real strange and surprising treat. They are small but will definitely wake you up! Street bottles of freshly squeezed bright orange juice are everywhere on the streets of Bangkok and Victory Monument is no different. I stopped at a stall to pick up a bottle of orange juice - and despite it being quite sweet, it was indeed very refreshing! The bottle of orange juice cost a total of 50 Thai Baht. A visit to Victory Monument in Bangkok would be incomplete without a visit to the boat noodle alley, one of the most delicious activities to do in Bangkok. The noodles are served in small bowls, so it's customary to eat a lot of bowls and stack them up on the edge of your table. Eat and eat and eat, and when you're done, the waiter simply counts your bowls and tallies up your bill from how many bowls you ate. Thai boat noodles are extremely delicious, flash blanched rice noodles bathed in thick rich porky broth along with a few sprigs of morning glory, some pieces of meat, and a few pork meat balls. If you're hungry in Bangkok, boat noodles will come to the rescue! If you're looking for what to do in Bangkok, make sure you include a walk and and eating tour of Victory Monument on your itinerary!

Filipino Food at Naty’s Kitchen in Honolulu, Hawaii
 
07:21
►Read more about Naty's Filipino Food Kitchen here: http://migrationology.com/2015/06/filipino-food-honolulu-natys-kitchen/ Back in 2010, I spent about 2 month in the Philippines, exploring, doing all sorts of things, and eating all sorts of food. The amazing people I met, and the delicious food I ate, contributed to it being a very memorable trip. This time, I didn’t make it back to the Philippines yet (however, I hope to visit soon in the future), but when I was in Honolulu, Hawaii, I came pretty close to the real thing at a restaurant called Naty’s Kitchen at the Maunakea Marketplace in Honolulu. The Maunakea Marketplace is located right in the heart of Chinatown in Honolulu, and if you walk inside the marketplace, and go to the food court section, it honestly feels like you’ve left Hawaii altogether, and have transported yourself into a market in Manila or somewhere in southeast Asia - it’s my kind of spot. There are a few different types of food to eat at Maunakea Marketplace, including a couple Thai stalls, but by far the dominating cuisine in Filipino food, and there are about 5 different Filipino food stalls to choose from. One of the most well known, and also they offer the most selection of dishes is Naty’s Kitchen. Naty’s Kitchen dishes out all the prepared food and has them all on display in the from cabinet, and you just pick and choose the different dishes that you want, which will then all be piled into a styrofoam container. Typically most customers might get a box with 2 dishes and rice, but I couldn’t resist ordering 3 dishes and then a bowl of sinigang soup on the side. After getting my rice, I ordered the pork dinuguan, one of the more noticeable Filipino foods of pork and blood made into a stew. Although it might not look the most appealing, and some people even call it chocolate pork, it actually tastes quite amazing. It’s almost like blood sausage without the casing, except it’s much more moist and has a gravy. The taste was very nice, almost with a slight hint of a livery flavor and just a slightly sour flavor as well. At first I was also going to order the pork adobo, which is one of the most well known Filipino foods, but it was made with pork belly and after seeing how oily it was, I asked the Aunty if she had any other recommendations. She pointed to the pork igado, which she said had a similar flavor to adobo, but it was made with a less fatty cut of pork. The igado was excellent, including tender chunks of pork, in a pepper and vinegar sour sauce. Along with my rice, it was very good. The last dish I got on my plate has always been one of my favorite Filipino foods, a dish called pinakbet, which is a mixture of different vegetables fried up with shrimp paste. It wasn’t overly shrimpy or overly salty, just had an excellent fragrance, and a good mixture of vegetables that went well with all the pork dishes. Also, I couldn’t resist getting an order of pork sinigang. When I was in the Philippines I really enjoyed eating fish sinigang, a sour tamarind soup, but here at Naty’s Kitchen in Honolulu this day, they only had the pork version. The flavor of the soup was very good, but the pork made it a little on the oily side - it was good but I would have preferred the fish version. Naty’s Kitchen is an excellent and quite authentic restaurant in Hawaii that serves delicious Filipino food. Naty’s Kitchen - Maunakea Market Place, Chinatown Open hours: I went there at about 11 am on a weekday and they were open and thriving, but I’m not sure of their exact business hours Prices: All the food I ate and ordered above cost $11 How to get there: Naty’s Kitchen is located in Chinatown at Maunakea Market Place right in Honolulu, Hawaii. If you can find street parking that’s great, otherwise there is a municipal parking garage nearby.

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

Mango Kulfi - Amazing Indian Ice Cream!
 
02:53
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.

Teppanyaki LOBSTER & STEAK - Amazing Knife Skills and Fire Cooking in Waikiki, Hawaii!
 
16:32
First time eating teppanyaki in Waikiki, Hawaii! ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ NOTE: This video is not sponsored, I paid for this meal in full. But Barry was able to ensure that he got to cook for us. Thanks Barry! Tanaka of Tokyo Restaurant During my visit to Honolulu, Hawaii to visit family I started posting some photos on Instagram. I got a message from Barry, who is a world renowned teppanyaki chef expert - he’s even traveling the world teaching how to cook teppanyaki. So when he asked if I would come in to the restaurant he works at, and he would do the cooking, I knew it would be a great opportunity - not only for the food but for the amazing cooking skill. Tanaka of Tokyo is Japanese teppanyaki restaurant in Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii. There’s an interesting history surrounding teppanyaki - it’s a Japanese meal, although it was invited to cook Western style. Funny thing is, it’s more popular outside of Japan than in Japan, and I’ve never even had it in Japan. So this was my first time to really have a proper teppanyaki meal. I asked the waitress what she recommended and it was a set that included lobster, steak, and scallops, plus some Hawaiian style poke to begin with. Our entire teppanyaki meal was extremely entertaining. The food was delicious and very high quality, but the cooking and show was a highlight. Our whole family enjoyed it from the start to finish. Barry is an amazing chef and he has incredible knife and fire skills! Eating teppanyaki at Tanaka of Tokyo is not a cheap meal, but you not only pay for the food, but for the entire dining show. Total price - $213.30 Special thanks to Barry for his amazing cooking!

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

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

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