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.

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.

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 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.

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.

FLAMING BEEF and EGGS! - Must-Eat Cambodian Street Food Dish in Phnom Penh!
 
09:14
Subscribe for more videos► http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe T-shirts for sale here► https://migrationology.com/store/ Just across the street from Central Market in Phnom Penh, you’ll find an amazing local spot for lunch that serves Cambodian flaming beef in a cow shaped pan. They light the cast iron skillets on fire, and then toss in some beef, seasoning, onions, eggs, and finish it off with some sauces and green onions. One of the best things about the dish is watching them being made and the lady that makes them could probably do it with her eyes closed, she’s done it so many times. You eat the flaming beef pan and juices with rice, and it goes perfectly together, especially with some extra added chilies and chili sauce. We ate here on a spur of the moment, just walking by in Phnom Penh and looking for something delicious to eat, and it turned out to be a must eat in Phnom Penh. Not sure of the name of this place in English, but here’s the Khmer: ភោជនីយដ្ឋាន បាយគោដុត Address: Preah Chey Chetha St. (118), Phnom Penh, Cambodia (On the corner of Street 61 and Street 118) Total price - 30,500 KHR ($7.36) for 5 pans and side dishes Puffed rice - 2,000 KHR (0.48) -- Music in this video: Not This Time https://goo.gl/HwVjdo MY CAMERA GEAR: Main camera: http://amzn.to/2dEL3hv Main lens: http://amzn.to/2e5Lum6 2nd camera: http://amzn.to/2mczuDx 2nd lens: http://amzn.to/2mcEGau Microphone: http://amzn.to/2dEr9Z9 Gorillapod: http://amzn.to/2epFsQx *These are Amazon affiliate links I would love to connect with you!

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. Stay tuned for this entire series of Seoul travel and food videos! -- Music used in this video: http://www.audionetwork.com/browse/m/track/sky-lounge_119969 CAMERA I USE: Main camera: http://amzn.to/1U4z93x Main lens: http://amzn.to/1SBrj0c Microphone: http://amzn.to/1SBrnwW *These are affiliate links SUPPORT MY WIFE AND I: Donate: http://migrationology.com/donate/ T-shirts and eBooks: https://migrationology.com/store/ MY WEBSITES: Migrationology.com: http://migrationology.com/ Get e-mail updates: https://migrationology.com/free-updates SOCIAL MEDIA: Snapchat: @migrationology Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology ► Seoul Travel Guide for Food Lovers: https://migrationology.com/travel-guides/seoul-korea/ --

Comforting Motherly Food at Darjeeling Restaurant, India
 
02:53
Check out my website http://migrationology.com/ for lots more Indian street food! | Have Facebook? https://www.facebook.com/migrationology Darjeeling, located at the base of the Himalayas, is a beautiful little town in the West Bengal state of India. After staying in Kolkata for a few weeks, and spending a little time in Nagaland, I headed to Darjeeling. The closest train station to Darjeeling is New Jalpaiguri, which is better known as NJP. From there you have to take a jeep to Darjeeling town which takes approximately 4 hours. After arriving in Darjeeling, we were extremely hungry, and the first restaurant we could come across was Singalila Restaurant, located right in the center of Darjeeling, just below the Chow Rasta. As soon as I pulled back the curtain and took a whiff, I could tell it was going to be an incredible meal! The restaurant is run by a motherly lady and her daughters that cook a delightful mixture of Sikkimese and Nepali and Himalayan food. They have Tibetan thukpa noodles and also they serves momo dumplings, but I was far more interested in eating rice and curry! So as we sat down, we simply order rice, which came with a variety of different vegetable curries and then I also ordered a beef curry and a pork curry. On another day, I had their chicken curry which was equally delicious, but you always have to just eat what they have available that particular day. The weather was extremely cold, probably close to freezing, but as soon as the mother brought me a fresh hot plate of rice paired with all the different curries I felt a lot warmer and more comfortable. You'll be served first a plate of rice that comes with dal soup - sort of more Nepali style than Indian style, the vegetable dish of the day, possibly some curry potatoes or other starch. You can then add a meat curry to your meal if you'd like. The biggest bonus for me for eating eat Singalila restaurant in Darjeeling was the communal plate of raw red onions, chillies, and outrageously delicious green sauce. I honestly could barely believe how good the green sauce was, and I'm not totally sure what all the ingredients included. It was very spicy and garlicky and it went well with everything throughout the meal. I loved this restaurant so much that I returned for lunch three days in a row - the food was that good! If you're ever in Darjeeling, India, be sure to visit Singalila Restaurant for a home cooked motherly style meal - the food is marvelous! Thank you for watching!

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

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!

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.

18:10
First time eating Ghanaian Food in Ghana, West Africa! ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ This was Day 1 of my trip to Ghana - searching out amazing Ghanian, West African food! So I wasn’t totally sure all that I was doing - but this is part of the reason I love traveling and going to places I have never been before - it gives you the chance to learn, and try new things. Heavy-Do Chop Bar - First restaurant we stopped at in Accra, is Heavy-Do Chop Bar, don’t you love the name? Now a Chop Bar in Ghana is a local style restaurant, oftentimes in a home-like compound or in the backyard. This place is quite well known in Ghana, and they are known for a reason, their food is incredible. I didn’t know it until eating there, but one of their specialties is omo tuo, which are Ghanaian style rice balls, eaten with a variety of different meats and soups. I ordered the rice balls with palm nut soup and red fish. It was insanely delicious! Lolonyo Tilapia Base (Duncan's Pub) - For dinner on my first day in Accra, Ghana, we headed over to a legendary place to eat grilled tilapia. The actual restaurant is called Lolonyo Tilapia Base, but most people know it as Duncan's Pub, which is right next to the fish spot. In the evening, people come here to eat grilled Ghanaian style tilapia, and it’s excellent. Along with the grilled fish, the part I loved the most was the pepper sauce - a chili mix that was extraordinary. This was just my first day eating Ghanaian food in Accra, Ghana. I learned a lot, and I have a few more amazing West African food tours of Ghana coming up!

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.

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!

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!

Jok (โจ๊ก) - Thai Rice Congee at the Market for Breakfast
 
03:22
Jok (โจ๊ก), or the Thai version of rice congee is one of the most popular Thai breakfasts dishes. Take a look at these 13 most popular Thai breakfasts - http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2012/01/thai-breakfast-food-dishes/ When it comes to breakfast in Thailand, it's not as distinguishable as a Western breakfast. Thai breakfast can often be the same food as a normal dinner or lunch, such as rice and curry. Jok (โจ๊ก), Thai rice soup is one of the common things to eat in the morning, and it's so good and soothing that it's almost impossible to no love. I'll admit though, when I first came to Thailand it wasn't my favorite thing to eat - I thought it was too plain and not hearty enough. By my opinion definitely changed as I ate Jok (โจ๊ก) a few more times and came to realize that I like the dish very much. Jok (โจ๊ก) can be found throughout Thailand and in Bangkok you'll find a Thai street food vendor serving Jok (โจ๊ก) on nearly every street corner throughout the city. I'm not entirely sure of the entire cooking process, but when the street food stalls prepare it, they first take a lump of prepared rice, mix it with water to make it into the correct consistency - as in a porridge - and then heat it over fire until it bubbles. The next process is to add a few minced pork meat balls or often some pieces of pig intestines and liver, and then an optional soft boiled egg into the Jok (โจ๊ก). When I'm in Bangkok, I particularly like my morning Jok (โจ๊ก) at the small market here http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2013/07/morning-jok-thai-congee-comforting-rice-porridge/ There particularly have some of the best tasting version of the Thai rice congee that I've ever had. One of their keys is to cook their rice soup of charcoal, giving the dish a lovely smoky aroma to it. Another thing is that they use high quality pork giving the rice a perfect porky flavor through and through. At this Bangkok street food stall, the majority of customers grab a bag for breakfast takeaway, but there are just a few tables where you can grab a seat if you're lucky. This day we were able to secure the table and enjoy our Jok (โจ๊ก) while sitting in the market. When you're looking for a Thai breakfast dish that's no spicy but rather completely soothing and comforting, this is one of the top options! On top of my rice congee I like to include a little handful of slivered ginger and some green onions to garnish. Finally, I like to add a splash of vinegar and soy sauce to flavor my bowl. Don't miss this Thai favorite breakfast dish when you're in Bangkok - you can get it for takeaway or sit down and enjoy! Once again, here's the restaurant featured: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2013/07/morning-jok-thai-congee-comforting-rice-porridge/ Follow our food adventures at http://migrationology.com/ & http://www.eatingthaifood.com/ & http://travelbyying.com/ Bangkok 101 Guide: http://migrationology.com/ebook-101-things-to-do-in-bangkok/ Thai Food Guide: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/eating-thai-food-guide/ Finally, subscribe so you don't miss the next tasty adventure http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=migrationology

Jhal Muri - Kolkata's Favorite Snack
 
02:20
For jhal muri and more Indian street food check out my website http://migrationology.com/ | Have Facebook? https://www.facebook.com/migrationology If there's one street food snack that nearly everyone in Kolkata loves and eats regularly, it would have to be jhal muri. It's a snack food, not a small meal, but more just a flavorful snack to munch on while walking around or while sitting traffic or just while hanging out and enjoying life. But what is jhal muri, this famous Bengali snack? There are many different mixtures of the snack, but in Kolkata, the main version first begins with puffed rice - similar to rice krispies. A handful of puff rice is first tossed into a metal tin along with some fried nuts and maybe some toasted chickpeas - these are all dry ingredients. The vendor then adds fresh coriander, chopped up red onions, chillies (up to you if you would like it spicy or not), spices, and finally a squirt of Bengali famous mustard oil. All the ingredients are then stirred up using a stick until everything is even and then the contents are normally added to a newspaper cup and ready to be served. During this video, it was my very first time to eat jhal muri, and I quite liked it. It's not a snack I would eat on a frequent basis, as there's not much to it, but it would be good every now and then, especially while sitting on a bus or something like that. What I really liked about jhal muri is mixing dry ingredients with fresh ingredients. It's sort of like taking a bag of chips (crisps) and added fresh onions and spices and chillies to the bag. Makes for a nice little contrast of both textures and flavors and really spices things up. Jhal muri is available all over the streets in Kolkata (Calcutta), India, and you'll specifically notice a vender selling it when you see a huge bag full of puffed rice sitting on the side of his cart or stall. You'll know right away that you can order a cone full of jhal muri from him! In the video, I ate this bag of jhal muri right outside the Kolkata National Museum, very near the entrance of Sudder street, but you'll find the snack all over the city if you look.

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!)

Kolkata Street Food - AMAZING Indian Vegetarian Meal on Decker's Lane!
 
03:28
Check out my Indian street food guide to Kolkata street food on my blog: https://migrationology.com/kolkata-street-food-guide-calcutta/ When I visited India, I went with a main intention to eat, of course. And as soon as I flew into Kolkata, I knew that I was in Indian street food heaven. Kolkata is a giant city, India's third largest, and while it's chaotic and busy in every way imaginable, this makes for an environment where street food is everywhere to be seen. After doing a little research, I decided to go to a street in Kolkata that's now known as James Hickey Sarani, but is better known by its former name of Deckers Lane. Mention Deckers Lane to most locals in Kolkata, and the most delicious selection of Indian street food will come to their minds. And that is exactly where I wanted to be, and where I found some truly wonderful Indian food in a very nice environment. The street is best during the lunchtime hour when many folks are out on their lunch breaks and hungry. Deckers Lane fills up with people devour plates of food, walking up and down, sipping on clay cups of chai, and motorcycles honking while passing by. Having not a clue where to eat first, I settled upon a masala dosa stall and that's what I ate (video later). But that was just warm up. After the masala dosa I couldn't help myself from going to the stall that was receiving the most continual flow of customer - there was one stall where there was a huge crowd huddled around eating and waiting for their food and it looked the best. So that's exactly where I went. I got in line, a line that didn't really exist, and finally had the chance to talk to the guy taking order. I first got rice and then under his recommendation had the potato curry, some mixed vegetable curry, and a few pieces of tandoori roti to top things off. I was incredibly excited to start digging into my Kolkata street food feast. The meal was food influenced from north India, rather than local Bengali dishes. It was rich and creamy, and the curries were strong and absolutely flavorful. Using the rice and tandoori roti, I was able to scrape up everything and fully enjoyed every single bite of this meal along Deckers Lane in Kolkata. The men eating at this street food stall along with me, were all pretty friendly too, particularly the man in the purple sweater who gave me some good tips and named the dishes I ate as he was eating too. You can just see the passion and intense love of the food he has on his face too! So anyway, this was one of my first meals in India, and it proved to be an absolutely delicious meal that I would eat over and over again if I lived in Kolkata. The entire Kolkata street food meal cost me 40 Indian Rupees, which is about $0.72, a pretty decent steal in my opinion!

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!

South Indian Food in Kuala Lumpur (Vishalatchi Banana Leaf Meal)
 
04:47
Go to http://migrationology.com/2012/11/south-indian-food-kuala-lumpur-vishalatchi/ for lots more food and travel. 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.

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

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!

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

Tandoori Chicken - Licking These Bones Clean!
 
02:44
When it comes to North Indian food, tandoori chicken is one of the most well known dishes. More street food here - http://migrationology.com/ When I was in Agra, India, I came across a street food kiosk known as "Time 2 Eat Mama Chicken Mama Franky House." This is not a joke, this is the real name of the restaurant, and what a restaurant it is! Now there are two different sides to this restaurant, one that served only vegetarian food and the other that served delicious meat dishes. I chose the non-vegetarian side and quickly noticed their racks of red colored tandoori chicken waiting to be ordered. Along with a stack of tandoori roti, I ordered myself a plate of a ¼ tandoori chicken. As soon as I placed my order, the vendor quickly added a few skewers of tandoori chicken into the tandoor oven and began to heat them up and fully cook them. The slapped a few balls of dough on the oven to form them into roti shapes and using a little pillow he placed them on the side of the oven. In just moments the chicken was sizzling and the tandoori rotis were bubbled up and ready to be served. The tandoori chicken came on a plate that included some red onions, some incredible green yogurt coriander sauce, and the magnificent piece piece of tandoori chicken hacked up into small pieces. The rotis were served on a separate plate. I've have tandoori chicken quite a number of times, but this was probably the best tandoori chicken I've ever had. It was moist and extremely flavorful and I really enjoyed it. If you ever go to Agra, India, along with visiting the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort, go to the Sadar Bazar and stop by Mama Chicken for some tasty tandoori chicken!

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)!

Chole Bhature (छोले भटूरे) - Mouthwatering Chickpeas and Deep Fried Bread at Sita Ram Diwan Chand
 
03:48
Chole Bhature (छोले भटूरे) is one of the most popular street foods in Delhi, India. Check out my Delhi travel guide - http://migrationology.com/delhi-travel-guide-ebook/ As soon as I arrived to Delhi, India, I immediately noticed Chole Bhature (छोले भटूरे also called chana bhatura), and after having my very first bite and meal of the dish, I knew that I was in love. Chole (छोले) is the name used for a spicy chick peas stew or curry. It's slow simmers so the chick peas are soft, yet still retain some of their texture, mixed with plenty of ghee, and then the perfect amount of masala spices are added to make it extremely flavorful. A bhature (भटूरे) is the other part of chole bhature, it's the deep fried bread, or a poori (puri) to be exact that the spicy chick peas are eaten with. So when I was in Delhi, India, I enjoyed this dish at many different locations, but on one of my last few days in the city I decided to check out a famous establishment known as Sita Ram Diwan Chand. Located in Paharganj, near the New Delhi railway station and the popular backpacker budget accommodation section of the city, it wasn't hard to locate. Also, the sign is bright red on the outside so it's quite easy to spot when you're walking through Delhi. As soon as I stepped foot into Sita Ram Diwan Chand, I was immediately overwhelmed by the glorious aroma coming from their Chole Bhature (छोले भटूरे). It was incredible and I honestly couldn't wait to eat. They are massively popular with local Delhi residents. Many customers come to Sita Ram Diwan Chand with huge takeaway order and they restaurants also packaged their food up to deliver to offices during the lunchtime hours. Luckily we arrived before it was too busy and crowded and I ordered just the classic. Now one thing that is different at this restaurant is that the bhature is not puffy like a pillow like it is on most of the street food stalls in Delhi. Instead it's more flat like a chapati, but the poori is stuffed with bits of paneer cheese and spice to make it even more mouthwatering delicious! My plate of Chole Bhature (छोले भटूरे) took just a few seconds to whip up. The vendor grabbed a fresh scoop of the spicy slow stewed chickpeas from the center of the pan. The thick gravy like chickpeas were oozing with flavor. The other cook heated up a could of bhatures to complete my dish. After receiving and paying you then find a table which are all standing tables and dig in. The great thing was that there were garnished like pickles and chilies on every table that went extremely well with the dish. I had Chole Bhature (छोले भटूरे) a number of times when I was in Delhi, and this was by far the best and tastiest version I had. It was actually luscious, so creamy and rich that it melted in my mouth and the deep fried bread was so flavorful from the spices, coriander, and paneer cheese. The combination was spectacular. This was a completely vegetarian meal, but it sure was packed with calories! Sita Ram Diwan Chand What to eat: There's really only one thing to eat here: chole bhature (they also call it chana bhatura) which costs an affordable 30 INR ($0.56) and you'll LOVE it! How to get there: The restaurant is located in Paharganj (Main Baazar, the budget backpacker area) which is just west of New Delhi Railroad station and Metro Station. From the Main Bazar road (Baba Namdev Marg), walk to Rajguru Marg T-intersection. Head north, and walk straight for about 200 meters or so. You'll see the red sign for Sita Ram Diwan Chand on your left hand side.

Idli Sambar - Eating Steamed Rice Cakes on a Narrow Lane in Varanasi
 
01:47
Idli Sambar is a wonderful Indian breakfast or snack from South India. Check out more of my street food discoveries here http://migrationology.com/2013/06/varanasi-city-travel-guide-tips/ Though it's originally a South Indian food (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZY1bYzN0lM), idli sambar is now available all over India. Since I wasn't able to travel to south India this time, I decided to eat a dish called idli sambar while I was in Varanasi, India. The dish is popular especially as a breakfast food (this being because it's quite easy to digest and goes down well), but you'll be able to find it for a snack or light meal throughout the day as well. While in Varanasi, India, at a small lane side street stall was where I found some cheap and tasty idlis. What is idli sambar? There are two different parts that make it up. The first is small little cakes which are made from rice flour and black lentil flour. The flour is made into a batter and allowed to ferment just slightly, similar to a dosa batter from south India. After that the batter is then steamed into little cakes using a special idli steamer. It sort of looks like white cornbread, and it has a similar airy texture. The next part is the sambar and chutney which is served as a side flavoring addition dish. The sambar sauce and chili sauces and dal is all ladles over the plain idli rice cakes to give them some wonderful flavor. This particular sambar was a sauce made from coconut, and it was excellent. I enjoyed this plate of idli sambar at a small hole in the wall restaurant in Varanasi, India, known as Maa Laxmi Dosa Corner. The vendor specialized in making a variety of south Indian specialities including dosas, uttapams, and idlis. Located in a narrow walking street of the ancient city, he served most of his customers standing in the lane. However, he did have a tiny seating area where one could eat while seated - though I think it would have been a little on the cramped side. If you want to eat at Maa Laxmi Dosa Corner when you're in Varanasi, first go to the Main Ghat. Facing the Ganges River, make a right into the narrow alleys just behind the small fresh market area. Navigate your way down the lane until you reach the stall, should only take about 5 - 10 minutes to get there. Enjoy his dosas and also be sure to eat a delicious plate of idli sambar.

Koh Kood Island - SEA SNAIL SASHIMI + Best Beaches and Attractions | Food Travel Guide!
 
20:59
Koh Kood (เกาะกูด) is a paradise island in Thailand! ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Day 8 (Koh Kood เกาะกูด, also spelled Ko Kood or Koh Kut): Eastern Thailand Food and Travel Tour. Watch all 8 videos here: This is Day 8 of my Eastern Thailand food and travel series. Our final destination was the island of Koh Kood (เกาะกูด), and one of the best islands and most beautiful in Thailand. From the water to the beaches, to the jungle, you’ll be in awe. How to get to Koh Kood? We took the Boonsiri Ferry - 1,000 THB ($31.75) per person round-trip. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there. On this one day guide of food and travel in Koh Kood (เกาะกูด), we hired a pickup truck to drive us around (Private vehicle - 2,000 THB ($63.50) whole day) to some of the famous sites, beaches, and restaurants. It was an amazing day. The Sunshine Resort Koh Kood at Ao Phrao Beach (อ่าวพร้าว) - This is where we stayed for the first few nights in Koh Kood. A very nice relaxing quiet place. Khao Saleun (ข้าวสะลื่น) - It doesn’t really have a name, but this small rice and curry restaurant serves great food in Koh Kood. Mushroom curry (แกงเห็ดเสม็ด) Chicken curry (แกงไก่บ้าน) Total price - 100 THB ($3.17) Old Tree 1 Old Tree 2 Klong Chao Waterfall (น้ำตกคลองเจ้า) - There are a number of tropical waterfalls on Koh Kood, and we went to Klong Chao, because of its big pool of water. It did start raining, but it was still fun. Khao Reua Rub (เขาเรือรบ) - This is a shrine and there’s not much to see, but it’s interesting. Bang Bao Beach (บางเบ้า) - This is one of the best beaches in Koh Kood and in Thailand. Crystal clear bathtub water. Ao Yai Fisherman Village (บ้านอ่าวใหญ่) - One of the things I wanted to do most in Koh Kood was visit a fishing village to eat seafood. The village is great, and well worth checking out and exploring when you’re in Koh Kood. Chonthicha Restaurant (ร้านชลธิชา) - There are a few different seafood restaurants, but we chose this one.

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!

Fried Crispy Catfish (Pecel Lele) at Permata Mubarok 1 | Indonesian Street Food in Jakarta
 
06:28
Check out my Jakarta Travel Guide for Food Lovers: https://migrationology.com/travel-guides/jakarta-indonesia/ One for the many famous Indonesian foods, especially common at warungs and street food stalls is pecel lele, which is deep fried catfish. The catfish are usually pretty small, and they are lightly seasoned before being deep fried to a complete crisp. In this video I met up with Theresia (check out her videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/heytheresiavideo) and we went to a warung in the neighborhoods of Western Jakarta, a place called Permata Mubarok 1. It was a little bit of a distance from Central Jakarta, but it was located in a nice quiet little neighborhood area. Permata Mubarok 1 specializes in all sorts of deep fried things, and pecel lele is just one of them. They also had deep fried chicken and organs, and even deep fried napa cabbage - something that I had never eaten like this before. We ordered up a selection of different deep fried items, including some pecel lele, the deep fried catfish. And you could either order plain rice or nasi uduk, which is coconut fragrant rice, and I went with nasi uduk. Finally, pecel lele wouldn’t be the same without sambal (chili sauce). They had a couple different versions of sambal, one was more sweet and the other was more just straight up chilies and garlic pounded into a beautiful condiment. You’ll find pecel lele all over Jakarta and Indonesia and it makes a popular and pretty tasty meal. Permata Mubarok 1 Address: Komplek Permata Buana, Jalan Puri Kembangan, Puri Indah, Jakarta Open hours: 5 pm – 10 pm daily Prices: 125,000 IDR ($9.41) for 4 people. -- Theresia’s Videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/heytheresiavideo Theresia’s Blog: http://www.heytheresia.com/ MY WEBSITES: Camera I use: https://migrationology.com/travel-resources/ T-shirts: https://migrationology.com/store/ Migrationology.com: http://migrationology.com/ EatingThaiFood.com: http://eatingthaifood.com/ TravelByYing.com: http://travelbyying.com/ SOCIAL MEDIA: Snapchat: @migrationology Instagram: https://instagram.com/migrationology Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/migrationology ►Jakarta Travel Guide: https://migrationology.com/travel-guides/jakarta-indonesia/ ►50 of the Best Indonesian Dishes: https://migrationology.com/indonesian-food/ --

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

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

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.

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

How to make sticky rice (Thai street food style)
 
05:04
Follow this recipe to learn how to make sticky rice the authentic Thai way. Get more details here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2015/02/how-to-make-thai-sticky-rice/ In Thailand, sticky rice, known as khao neow (ข้าวเหนียว) is the staple in the northern and northeastern regions of the country. Many Thais that originate from sticky rice regions, eat sticky rice multiple times a day, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snack. For this sticky rice recipe, I’m going to be making it the same way they make it in Isaan and other parts of Thailand, and I’m going to be cooking it right on my Thai street food cart. Sticky rice is often eaten with salads and grilled meats, dishes like som tam (green papaya salad), laab (minced meat salad), and all sorts of grilled meats and fish. Along the streets of Thailand, nearly everywhere you look in Bangkok, you’ll find food vendors grilling up skewers of pork called moo ping, and they always (unless they run out) also have sticky rice. The combination is one of the ultimate snacks combinations of Thailand. In parts of Thailand where sticky rice is the staple, it’s typically cooked in the morning for the entire household, and then transferred to what is called a kratib khao neow (กระติ๊บข้าวเหนียว), a basket that is specifically made to hold sticky rice - it’s just a cylinder bamboo basket with a lid, and it keeps the sticky rice moist without getting crusty throughout the day. When meal times roll around, all participating eaters grab a handful portion of sticky rice and proceed by taking a ball of sticky rice about the size of an olive, dipping it into the dressing of one of the side dishes at the table, and consuming. How to make sticky rice: It takes a little time and some thinking ahead to make sticky rice, because just like cooking beans, you have to soak the rice before you cook it. It’s best to actually soak your sticky rice overnight, and then cook it the next day, but if you don’t have that amount of time, of if you wake up one morning and all of a sudden decide you want to cook sticky rice, you should soak it for at least four to five hours. All you have to do is put the raw sticky rice is a bowl or tub, and submerge it in room temperature water, and allow it to sit. You don’t even need to rinse the rice, just let it sit and soak. After the rice has been soaked, it will become a little swollen and much softer, so that it won’t take too long to steam. After soaking the rice, I then transferred it to a cone shaped basket used for steaming. The rice then needs to steam in a pot with a few inches of water at the bottom for 15 to 20 minutes, but usually it just takes 15 minutes for me - that is if I soak the rice overnight. If you soak the rice for less time, it may take a little longer to steam. To steam, make sure the rice is elevated above the boiling water, then cover it somehow so the steam remains within the rice. After 15 minutes you can remove the lid, and check to see if the rice is fluffy and not crunchy at all. If it’s still a little crunchy, just put the lid back on the basket, or whatever steamer you’re using, and allow to steam for a few more minutes. For this Thai sticky rice recipe I used one kilo of raw rice, but you can really use however much you want, and the exact same directs and steps will still apply. If you soak your sticky rice overnight, then follow this recipe, you’ll have beautiful, hot and fluffy sticky rice every time… and it tastes amazing!

Exotic Fruit: Cempedak - A Jackfruit, But Better!
 
01:56
Learn more about cempedak, an awesome fruit right here: http://migrationology.com/2013/03/exotic-fruit-southeast-asian-cempedak/ As you may have seen in previous episodes of Migrationology, I highly enjoy exotic fruit! Among the many fresh and unique fruits to sample is something known as a cempedak, also referred to at a chempedak or extremely officially as an artocarpus integer. This fruit, which is about a foot in length is widely available along the Malay peninsula, parts of Indonesia, and Brunei. The fruit, like many other exotic fruits in Southeast Asia, has quite a seriously pungent aroma that to myself smells like a combination of urine mixed with sweet honey. That's right, though not the most attractive description I've ever come up with, that's really how a really ripe fruit can smell - and even though it smells like that, I simply love it and consider it one of my all time favorite fruits! A cempedak is quite similar to a jackfruit - except a jackfruit is much larger in size, usually rounder, and also has green skin. A cempedak on the other hand is shaped more like a really big summer sausage and has scaly brown or golden skin. The fruit on the inside is very similar to each other, but as I'll explain below, I find cempedak to be far superior to a jackfruit in flavor. The first step is to purchase the exotic cempedak fruit. Once you have one you'll need to cut it open. The outer shell is extremely sappy with glue like white liquid that can be a pain to wash off your hands. That being said, just go for it, as it's well worth the sap on your hands to get to the edible portion. Within the string shell of a cempedak are little bite sizes pieces of fruit. Just grab a piece and start to eat the fruit while avoiding the large sized seed in the middle. The seeds can be boiled and eaten, tasting a bit like a starchy potato, but I don't care for the seeds too much. Cempedak fruit tastes like a combination of bananas and pineapple that's been massively infused with the sweetest honey you'll ever taste. It's an absolute outstanding flavor and it's nearly unbelievable that a natural cempedak can be so sweet and honey like. During this video I decided to eat the entire fruit, and it was quite a task but I did feel quite wonderful after polishing the entire thing off! There's an overview of the cempedak fruit, yet another exotic Southeast Asian fruit that everyone should try!

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