      I have enjoyed your shows. If you are still making these videos, May I recommend you come to Canada to the First Nation ( aboriginal) community of Waskaganish, Quebec. You will eat the most delicious local foods from the land, prepared by excellent cooks following the traditional recipes. If you come in late August to earl September you will taste the best delicacy I’ve ever eaten, namestick. It is a small whitefish which come up the Rupert River to spawn. They are scooped or netted in the traditional way. The fillets are semi dried over a smudge fire then cooked on an open grill. It is served hot and fresh with a special form of cooked caviar. You could attend a feast and taste traditionally prepared beaver, moose and other local game and fish. The aboriginal peoples are the only original Canadians, and only in their communities will you experience the amazing native Canadian dishes. You will also have the opportunity to explore some of the community and culture as you do in our he cities you visit.

        Paige, wow – that sounds absolutely incredible, and definitely worth the trip to Quebec. Thank you so much for all the wonderful descriptions (I am hungry right now even reading this), a trip to Canada will definitely happen. Thanks again for your support, take care! All the best.

        Hey Omar, to be honest with you, I wanted to come to Egypt, but due to my wife’s visa for Egypt we couldn’t get it in time. However, I did spend some time in Egypt about 5 years ago, and I absolutely loved it. Hoping to visit again in the future!

      For Lisbon I recommend the octopus salad at “A Muralha Tasca Típica” in the Alfama and if you have the chance to go to Porto, do it, because it is the nicest city in Europe and there is an amazing fish restaurant street in Matosinhos. My favorite portuguese dish is “Arroz de Tamboril”, but I only had it in Porto.

      And if you want to splurge – treat your wife to a fancy schmancy dinner at Frantzen – eat at the chefs table! She’ll love you forever.

      Hi Mark! Welcome to Stockholm (when it’s time for your arrival, maybe you’ve already been here)…! I followed so many of your advice when I was in Bangkok last year and ate very well ?? Here are some places to visit:
      * Resturang Tradition, there are two of them and they have an amazing black pudding which is very typical over here.
      * Oaxen slip, lovely restaurant on a boat
      * Meatballs for the people
      * Pharmaria, a very nice bar where the cocktails are great and fun!
      * Bj?rk Bar & Grill at the Courtyard Hotel Excellent food and drinks! Lots of Swedish flavours. The toast Skagen is a classic!

      I hope you enjoy Stockholm and that you have time to see the archipelago. Fun food markets are H?torgshallen and ?stermalmshallen.

      Cheers

      Hi Mark! I’m Yohan from Jakarta, Indonesia. My wife and I love your vlogs! In many ways, we can relate to your videos as those are the kind of places that we would visit had we been there.

      I was in Hongkong in March 2016. I went to this vegetarian restaurant in Ngong Ping 360 at Po Lin Monastery for lunch. I thought it was a pretty interesting experience. Maybe you can try it out for one of your reviews. You have to purchase the coupon at the ticket counter just before climbing the stairs to the Buddha statue. There were 2 price options and I got the more expensive one which I thought was a much better choice. I got to sit inside the restaurant while the lower priced meal would have you seated outdoors and you have to queue for your food. The place was bustling with both locals (they seemed to know the staffs) and tourists when I was there.

      Anyway, my wife and I are so looking forward to your Round-The-World-Trip vlogs! Have a safe journey round and back!

      Mark
      You are coming to my town Mumbai: Try Bademia’s behind Taj Mahal hotel, colaba, next to it is leopold cafe and cafe modegar, also try swathi snacks and one more pure vegetarian Bhagat Tarachand (do try their Beer bottle Lassi)
      Now Moving to other places, in Dadar you can go to gypsy restaurant, gomantak hotel for konkani and malvani style of maharashtrian seafood delicasies (do try the solkadi, crab fry masala),
      Do try some food trucks which are moving around the city, I am not sure of their names, but they are pretty awsome,
      In Thane a suburb of Mumbai, try the Mamledar misal, near to Panvel to the east of Mumbai is Shree Datta restaurant, for awsome street food especially during the monsoon.

      I am currently in Dubai and would love to host you if you can make the extra stop in your going around the world sojourn.

      Hi Mark … Love your videos !! I am from Mumbai and have tried almost every restaurant in Mumbai.. Since your time would be short here’s a list that I think would help you get the most out of Mumbai.
      1) Breakfast:- The best breakfast dishes that all Mumbai people love are from South Indian cuisine. The most popular and the most eaten are Idli , Dosa , Medu Vada . Now you’d find south Indian food practically in any corner of Mumbai . But if you want to try the best of the best i.e the original, authentic South Indian food , you have to go to area called.. ‘Matunga’.. in Mumbai.. This area has a high number of people from the south indian community and is widely popular for tons of authentic South Indian restaurants . Now the one i’d recommend is a place called …”Udipi Idli House”.. This is one of the most famous and one of the oldest Idly joints in Mumbai and has a wide varieties of Idlies that you wont find in other normal restaurants. Other restaurants just sere one type of plain Idly , but this one has at least 20 different types . Plus its quite famous and near from main roads and railway station, so you wont have any trouble finding it .
      Address:- 462, Ram Bhavan, Opposite Jain temple, Dr B Ambedkar Road, King Circle, Matunga East, Mumbai

      2) Lunch:- Typically any famous North Indian restaurants would be good… I’ll leave this one to
      ..
      3) Between lunch and dinner :– Street FOOD !!!! I love it !! And I know you love street food too !!! This includes stuff like
      ‘Sev Puri’ , Pani Puri , Vada Pav, and Mumbai’s favorite Bhaji Pav … Now all of this you’d find again in every corner of the city but the most famous place and one of Mumbai’s favorite is the stalls on Chowpatty Beach…. Wide number of stalls are available and you can enjoy the food with a view of the sea !!!! If you want to enjoy Mumbai street food to the fullest you have got to go to Chowpatty Beach…
      ..
      And yes if you want to get detailed restaurant reviews go to Zomato.com … Its the most famous Indian food and restaurant review site …
      Here’s my number if you have any problems in around Mumbai.. I have lived here for 17 years and I know every corner of the city …
      Mobile ;- 9167175050…..
      Your amazing Mark !!! Keep up the good work !!!

      My mom is from just outside Lisbon, so I’ve been really lucky to have visited multiple times in my life. It’s a gorgeous city, with fantastic food. I can’t recommend many restaurants by name (never kept track), but these are my picks of dishes you must try while in Lisboa. ??

      Pastel de Nata – Pasteis de Belem IS the place to go. Have a bica (espresso) to wash it down.

      Gelato – Santini, in the Chiado district. Best gelato you will have outside of italy. There will be a line. It WILL be worth it. One of my earliest food memories is their gelato. <3

      Port wine and Ginja – Try the ginja (cherry liqour) served in a chocolate cup. You can usually get it by the class for 1-2 euros in the shops that sell booze in the city centre.

      Arroz Cabidela – braised rooster or rabbit, served with rice that's cooked in a broth that includes the blood of the animal. Risotto-like in consistency, it's purplish and has a 'vinegary' taste – it does not taste like iron. Understandably 'squeamish' for some, but I think you would enjoy this dish!

      Caldeirada – fish / seafood stew, served in a copper pot

      Frango Peri Peri – BBQ chicken in the infamous bird-eye chili marinade

      Polvo Lagareiro – Melt in your mouth grilled octopus, served with boiled potatoes and veggies, and a 'relish' of chopped onions and garlic, olive oil, vinegar, lemon and cilantro.

      Lulas Recheadas – squid stuffed with a mixture of cooked rice and chouri?o.

      Grilled Sardines – eat it on top of fresh cornbread (to sop up the delicious and healthy oils), and eat it with your fingers. Messy and delicious.

      The saying is that there's 365 bacalhau dishes – one for every day of the year. My favourite is 'bacalhau gomes sa' (cooked and shredded salt cod, baked casserole style with potatoes, onions, boiled eggs and garlic, all tossed in olive oil. Olives on top). This is my childhood in a dish – the ultimate comfort food

      Caldo verde: Shredded kale soup. The Portuguese ate kale before it was cool. LOL

      A small aside: In Portuguese restaurants, the side dishes at the start of your meal (bread/butter, olives, presunto, cheese, pate, etc) are not free. It's called 'couvert'. When the waiter brings it out, decline the plates you don't want – and check your bill. Accidents happen, and it'll be quickly corrected.

      If you have time to get outside the city, visit Sintra (town and 2 castles in the mountains) Obidos (town surrounded by a medieval wall that you can walk), and Cabo da Roca (most western point in continental Europe)

      *If you make it to Sintra, try the Queijadas (mini-cheesecakes). Get them from Piriquita (on Rua das Patarias – there's 2 locations)

      Boa viagem! ??

      Hi Mark, love your videos! This trip sounds incredible and I can’t wait to see! So far looks like you’ve gotten incredible recommendations for New York. Below are some of my favorite places in NYC:

      1. Pollos a la Brasa Mario: Delicious Colombian food in the most diverse neighborhood in the world, Jackson Heights, Queens. They have several locations, but the 2 story restaurant on Roosevelt Avenue is by far my favorite one. You can’t go wrong with any of the steak dishes or a bandeja tipica. They’re open 24 hours a day and busy all day long, but you never seem to wait long for a table: http://www.yelp.com/biz/pollos-a-la-brasa-mario-jackson-heights

      2. Taqueria Cocoyoc: Hole in the wall in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Not too far away from another famous taqueria (Los Hermanos) but I haven’t been there personally. Awesome tacos and tostadas! http://www.yelp.com/biz/taqueria-cocoyoc-brooklyn

      3. Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot: by far the best hot pot I’ve ever had! Located in Flushing, Queens (awesome food destination; also recommend the New York Food Court if you’re in the neighborhood http://www.yelp.com/biz/new-york-food-court-flushing) Fresh ingredients, homemade fish balls, extremely delicious broth. http://www.yelp.com/biz/little-sheep-mongolian-hot-pot-flushing?osq=Little+Sheep+Mongolian+Hot+Pot

      4. Cachapas y Mas: all the way uptown, but worth the trip. Awesome Venezuelan cachapas: http://www.yelp.com/biz/cachapas-y-mas-new-york

      You definitely can’t go to New York without having a decent bagel and lox. Russ and Daughter is a NY staple (haven’t been there myself sadly). If you have the time, I recommend getting fresh bagels and all the lox fixings at Zabar’s in Manhattan’s Upper West Side: http://www.yelp.com/biz/zabars-new-york

      If you’re looking for amazing coffee (NY is a huge coffee city!) I highly recommend Sweetleaf in Long Island City, Queens, especially their Rocketfuel (there are 2 locations) http://www.yelp.com/biz/sweetleaf-long-island-city-2

      In Manhattan, you must try La Colombe coffee. My favorite location is the one at the edge of SoHo and Tribeca (no Wifi sadly): http://www.yelp.com/biz/la-colombe-coffee-new-york

      Hope you have an amazing time in my hometown!

      Hi Mark, when your in Stockholm, why not take a day trip to Denmark (only one hour away) I would love to host you, and show you our city, and some of the local food we have here. I also would try to make a meeting between you and a Danish vlogger called Chili Claus (http://youtu.be/A7kjl-NhFR4) I own a “political” bar here in Denmark, and would like to invited you and Ying to taste some of our local bitters and beers, after a long day where we would visit our Queens castle, have a behind the scene tour at our parliament, and of course lots and lots of nice Danish food … Not that spicy, but very delicious ??

      All the best, keep up your good work

      Very happy you are coming to Muscat. Here you will find a lot of fusion food, as our food is a mix between Indian and Arabic food. If you get a chance go into the dessert for traditional Bedouin food, similar to what you had in Jordan. Also don’t miss our fish, which is in abundance here… Tuna, King Fish and Hamour are the best well know choice. Also Sardines cooked on the beach as soon as the are caught..delicious…

      Recommendations for Stockholm:
      *Fried herring on crispbread (str?mming p? kn?ckebr?d) is a classic dish that you will find at a street food car in S?dermalmstorg (Slussen subwaystation) named Str?mmingsvagnen. (https://sv-se.facebook.com/pages/Str%C3%B6mmingsvagnen/188320557855682)

      *At Hornstulls market several food trucks park every sunday (next to a flea market). The market is down by the water and if you continue walking east, along the water, you will come across more restaurants and cafés. (http://www.hornstullsmarknad.se/)

      *The food trucks (str?mmingsvagnen excluded) are normally not serving traditional swedish food (husmanskost). If you want to try some of that I recommend Bl? D?rren (also close to Slussen subwaystation). (http://bla-dorren.se/home/)

      *In the archipelago around Stockholm there also are some good places to eat. Bockholmen is one of the few that you can travel to with subway (http://bockholmen.com/en/) and by bus you can get to the Systrarna Delselius café that serve a nice shrimp sandwish (r?ksm?rg?s), (http://www.systrarnadelselius.se/).

      *If you want to go further out in the archipelago I recommend Ut? V?rdshus (http://www.utovardshus.se/vardshuset_english.html) and Finnhamns Krog (http://www.finnhamn.se/pls/nvp/Document.Show?CID=4421&MID=7). To plan a trip to these more remote islands you can use the boat company Waxholmsbolagets journey planner. (http://www.waxholmsbolaget.se/visitor/archipelago-traffic/journey-planner/).

      Good luck! ??

      Just returned from a trip to Barcelona and this is what I really enjoyed – Teleferic for tapas, Dela Crem for gelato, La Paradeta for seafood, Chocolat Box for churros y chocolate, Bliss for overall European/Spanish meal. Another one for tapas is Bodega Granados. Baluard Bakery (Praktik Hotel Bakery) for bread/pastries. Good stop for coffee is Satan’s coffee.

      New York – Totto Ramen, Chodangol (for good Korean homemade tofu soup), Levain Bakery for cookies, Ess-a-Bagel for bagels, Vezzo’s for pizza. Blue Bottle or La Colombe for coffee.

      Had a good time at Can Culleretes in Barcelona (2010), so not sure how good it is now… Well, food in Barcelona, the likelihood of getting a bad place is slim.

      Stockholm, have been to ?stg?tak?llaren, the Saluhall, and the restaurant in Vasa museum (was with a conference dinner). Nystekt Strommingvagnen (herring) and Maxi Grillen (tunnbrodsrulle) are awesome streetfood options.

      Have a great time. ??

      Hi,
      I was wondering if you could go to Pakistan as it is close to India. Pakistani food is similar to Indian food however very much different. I would be truly grateful if you do go there.

      Hi Mark,

      Really excited to hear that you are visiting NYC. It would be great if you guys are up for a meet up. Me and my wife are avid viewers of your channel and would love to meet you and Ying in person. And I recommend you to try Shake Shack burger, Sophie’s Cuban food and Indie Kitch for a chitpotle style Indian food. Try their goan fish and make sure you ask for spicy. After all we don’t eat if it’s not spicy ????.

      Hi, mark. Welcome to Mumbai. I’ve been a keen follower of your work over the last two years. It’d be great to meet up with you in Mumbai over a great meal. I know a couple of places that serve rice-and-curry meals that you would love.

      3 – Jimmy Boy

      Hi Mark! Love all your videos, makes me hungry all the time and I try to seek out all the wonderful foods if possible in my area.

      I have already noticed a ton of different options for Hong Kong and New York so I’ll provide only a few suggestions!
      Hong Kong – If you ever have a chance to make it to the Big Buddha in Lantau Island, there is a little shop that serves sweet tofu pudding made the the mountain’s water. Also, if you ever get a chance to eat claypot rice, curry fishballs and all the street food. For sweets, try to get the egg waffles and mango dessert places (mango is plentiful in Hong Kong) Also, “Dai Pai Dongs” are places to really good food and they are open late. (They are also becoming extinct!)
      New York – Halal Guys! Gotta get the white sauce with the chicken and rice plate with their famous hot sauce. Also the Chinatown in Flushing: the basement food court in New World Mall. They have hand pulled noodles and lamb sandwiches. And if you can, try all the Spanish food that you can! There is a famous arepa lady. Try the poke/sushi burrito. Also, its new but Peete’s Pies! the Black Bottom Almond pie, Banana Cream Pie, Key Lime Pie, all good! Happy travels! ??

      Hi Ying and Mark,

      When you are visiting Mumbai, do visit TRISHNA. It is a seafood restaurant located at Kala Ghoda- Colaba. We know you are an avid seafood lover and it is one of the best places to eat in Mumbai.

      Wishing you both a wonderful trip around the world.

      Hi Mark,it will nice to see you come to our beautiful Stockholm ,do you know exactly the dates you will be here ?hope not in the wintertime hehe
      But heres my suggestions
      meatballs with mashed potatoes and lingonberry
      different varieties of salmon (such as gravlax, inkokt lax, fried, pickled), varieties of herring (most commonly pickled, but also fried, au gratin, etc

      but if you can find, you have to try the famous swedish sm?rg?sbord where you can find all of the swedish trafitional dishes in one place
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sm%C3%B6rg%C3%A5sbord

      And also a tunnbr?dsrulle like Anthony bourdain was eating when he was here ??
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPCytfxNU7Y

      this is my tip and a must if you come to sweden,this is really swedish foods for locals
      I will follow your food trip around the world…..

    • Rasa

      Hey Mark I would recommend Gro in Stokcholm. Just over a year ago, chefs and former colleagues Henrik and Magnus realised their dream of opening a small restaurant serving simple, honest, almost exclusively local food where gr?nsaker (vegetables; literally “green things”) are the stars. A dish of cauliflower, bacon and cress, for example, uses cauliflower five different ways: puréed with brown butter, roasted florets, raw shaved root, raw leaves and pickled stem. Lunch is chalked up on a blackboard daily with four choices (100 SEK/£9 each). Dinner is currently served once a week, on Thursdays. I think they also do a four-course lunch. Unfortunately for you it won’t be spicy, so leave the t shirt at home ????????

      Second comment on this thread!

      I would just like to add to the calls of people asking you to go to Britannia Cafe in Bombay! Irani cafes in Bombay have a long history and are slowly withering away – the ones that exist have almost reverential status. Britannia is the best out of those cafes as it maintains its Parsi/Colonial charm very well – I visited it once as a child in 2005 and then again in 2014 and it feels everything has remained untouched. Parsi Indian food is also an interesting twist on Indian food, it brings in Persian influences and has more subtles tastes than the more typical robust flavours you associate with Indian food.
      Try their chai with pau and butter for breakfast!

      Hi Mark

      When you are in Stockholm you should try the Harakiri sausage. It suppose to be the spiciest sausage in the world, but i have my doubt about that.
      Yes it is spicy,,, but world spiciest? No i don′t think so.

      Only open 22:00-03:30 friday & saturday nights!!!
      Check there website for location: http://new.helldog.se/

      Alot of videos on youtube if you search for “harakiri korv”.
      “Korv”, means sausage in swedish.

      Keep it up and thanks for you videos…!

      (I think my previous comment was nixed cause it was too long, so I’ll try to keep it short) I highly suggest that you visit the borough of Queens when you’re in New York, as the borough has some of the best and most diverse food options in the city, if not the world. From Croatian to Lanzhou-style Chinese to Trinidadian, Queens has it all and more. Here are some of my suggestions for places to try:

      Golden Shopping Mall (Flushing)- an authentic Chinese hawker center in one of the most heavily Chinese ‘hoods outside China; try the Lamb Noodle Soup stall and Xi’an Famous Foods
      Xinjiang BBQ Cart (Flushing)- for spicy Uyghur-style skewers
      Brooklyn Bagel and Coffee Company (Astoria)- for New York bagels, obviously
      El Rey del Taco Truck (Astoria)- for street tacos
      Sorriso Pork Store (Astoria)- for Italian-American deli
      Delicias Manabitas (Astoria)- for Ecuadorian
      Lali Guras (Jackson Heights)- for Nepalese/Tibetan

      Anyways, have fun on your world travels with Ying! Cheers.

      When you’re in New York, I highly suggest that you visit the borough of Queens, as it is here where you can find the true “melting pot” of the city and therefore the best and most diverse food options! You can find nearly every kind of food in the borough, from Croatian to Lanzhou-style Chinese to Bangladeshi to Cypriot. When I first visited in 2011, I was truly amazed as to how this was possible. But I digress. Here are some of my Queens restaurant/food stall suggestions:

      Golden Shopping Mall- Flushing, Queens (not a “mall” but a hawker center selling some of the most delicious and authentic Chinese food outside of China, all compacted into a tiny space; I suggest going to either the Lamb Noodle Soup stall, Tianjin Dumpling House, or Xi’an Famous Foods); other awesome Chinese food courts in the neighborhood are “New York Food Court” and “New World Mall”

      Xinjiang BBQ Cart- Flushing, Queens (for Uyghur-style skewers)

      Brooklyn Bagel and Coffee Company- Astoria, Queens (for New York bagels, obviously)

      El Rey del Taco Truck- Astoria, Queens (for tacos)

      Sorriso Italian Pork Store- Astoria, Queens (for real Italian-American deli sandwiches, produce)

      Delicias Manabitas- Astoria, Queens (for Ecuadorian)

      There’s more but I’m going to stop.

      In New York, Saigon Banh Mi on 198 Grand Street. My ‘last meal’ if I had a choice…
      A beyond incredible sandwich, and something that Bill Murray listed as his ‘last meal’ in the Village Voice many years ago..

    • Josias Lopes

      For Lisbon you MUST try the “Cervejaria Ramiro” (http://www.cervejariaramiro.pt/). Not the cheapest place to eat in Lisbon but, I assure you it has the best sea food in Lisbon.

      Things you must try there:
      – Percebes – Goose barnacle
      – Ameijoas a Bulhao Pato – Portuguese Clams speciality with Garlic, coriander and white wine…

      Then you can have prawns, lobster, crab, etc.. all is good and fresh there.

      For desert (you will love this), it is usual in this restaurant to ask a “Prego” (Beefsteak sandwich with Mustard)

      lots of halal guys recs here, so sorry in advance for the disappointment.

      for NYC, I’ll second Taim for the best falafel I’ve had anywhere, then add
      – New World Mall in Flushing (most incredible Chinese food court, leans toward noodles, dumplings, and northern Chinese food)
      – Kung Fu Xiao Long Bao in Flushing (truly world class xiaolongbao, try the chocolate xiaolongbao!)

      skip:
      – banh mi anywhere. you will be even more disappointed than halal guys
      – dim sum anywhere, it’s not that great
      – Chinese food in Manhattan in general, it’s all incredibly salty. stick to Flushing for chinatown.

      I hope you have a great time on your trip and I look forward to watching all the videos!

      I just have this recommendation for New York to add:

      It’s a great little (tiny!) place for breakfast called Johny’s Luncheonette (Manhattan, 124 W 25th St, Frnt 1). Very simple but tasty and generous portions, mainly locals and friendly. Try the ‘Bigman’ breakfast. I wrote a review on tripadvisor a while back after a visit there actually:

      https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g60763-d2460876-r233787133-Johny_s_Luncheonette-New_York_City_New_York.html

      As other people have already said, you have to try the pastrami in Katz too!

      Hi Mark,

      in Stockholm, without any doubt, try “Nystekt Str?mming” close to subway stop “Slussen”. Very low key Foodtruck vendor with amazingly good fish, very delicious, very cheap. Last time I was in Stockholm, i ate there several times, and if I had only one meal in the city, it would be there.

      enjoy your trip!!!

      Hi Mark, love your videos and blogs! One place I know you will love in Barcelona is called Quimet & Quimet, (you can search it on google or Yelp) Bourdain went there and it was fabulous. Very small restaurant with no seat, people eat on a stand, mostly spanish style canned seafood. I know that doesn’t sound too appealing but it’s one of Spain’s signature tapas and they taste great! You can see their food pictures on Yelp. Your type of atmosphere too.

      For Rome, if you want the best charcuterie and cheese board, go to La Prosciutteria, address: via della panetteria 34A, 00187 Rome. It’s also a very tiny restaurant with maybe only 5 tables. Usually a very long line so be sure to go early. They have an amazing board that’s filled with cured meat and cheese. Very very inexpensive, and extremely popular!

      Hope you will get around to try these two restaurants, they are in my opinion must tries in Barcelona and Rome.

      2. http://www.yelp.com/biz/faiccos-italian-specialties-new-york Faicco’s for incredible local sandwiches and italian american specialties (firemen were getting lunch when I was there).

Love your videos and never have i ever missed one single video since i started watching your channel. You are awesome and i hope to one day fulfill my dream of getting to travel and explore food with you, even if it is just for one week or so. Keep up the good work and i hope to meet you!

      Hi Mark & Ying,

      When in Hong Kong and some place off the tourist path, try Wong Lam Kee Chiu Chow Fish Ball Noodles in Tai Hang (G/F, 5 Shepherd Street, Tai Hang), the dish to get is the beef brisket with dry noodles, it’s super tender and juicy.

      Another noodle place is Nam Kee Spring Roll Noodle in Aberdeen (8 Wu Nam St, Aberdeen). It’s now a franchise but the original shop is in Aberdeen. The dish to get is the spring roll with rice noodles.

      Lastly, try Wing’s Catering in Wan Chai (2 Landale st, Wan Chai) and get the char-grill chicken chops on rice, It’s to die for. Well, hope you get to try them all and have a awesome trip!

      Hey Mark,

      I was just in Italy visiting some family and touring around the country. On my stop in Rome I found some amazing places you might want to check out. Nice and local like you like lol.

      1) Il Fico (Via Monte Giordano, 49) – Pasta and fish
      2) La Montecarlo (Via Savelli, 13) – pizza, pasta and typical roman fried dishes
      3) Il Portico (Via Portico d’Ottavia, 1e) – Pasta and meat dishes (this is in the jewish neighbourbood of Rome so all the food here is unique and kosher, very tasty)
      4) Piazza Campo de’fiori – morning market with flowers and fruits
      5) Trastavere area – many local restaurants and wine and beer bars

      Hope you can check some of these out,

      Happy eating,

      Hey Mark, although you have already got a lot of recommendations for Mumbai. You should also visit:
      1. Baghdadi, behind the Taj Mahal hotel at Colaba for their chicken masala fry with one of their rotis. It really is a must have.
      2. Trishna or Gajali for their seafood fare. There are quite a few of them around town so you can pick the closest one to you.
      3. Idris, this guy just has a tandoor by the road and has some amazing kebabs and rolls. He is located under world trade center at Cuffe Parade.
      4. Bademiya, this is also behind the Taj Mahal hotel at Colaba and has some good tikkas and kebabs.
      5. Sarvi, this place has amazingly succulent beef sheek kebabs. It is just opposite Nagpada Police station.
      6. Pals Fish Corner, just off Linking road they serve amazing tandoori kebabs. Their Their reshmi tangdi and fish tikkas are amazing.
      7. Ayubs, they serve some amazing rolls and are located at Fort.
      There are tons of other street food places to go to but these are a few of my favourite places. Also there are two places on my blog which are mouthwateringly good too. If you do want a break from street food there are a lot of casual and fine dining restaurants as well, like Indigo, Indigo Delicatessen(amazing burgers and steaks), Royal China, Lings Pavilion(a very old Chinese restaurant which actually is also a must do, very good food), Smoke House Deli, The Nutcracker,etc.
      I hope you have an amazing time. If you are free and do want to meet up do let me know.
      All the best to you and Ying!!

      Hi Mark,

      I’m a big fan of your videos. Really enjoy watching you eat the dishes from my favorite cuisines, and I can’t wait to make it back over to South east Asia to eat some of the fantastic things you’ve posted about.

      I have some tips about your time in Spain. The other posters gave you some good tips about Barcelona (I’d also add Paella on the beach at L’escamarla) but I’m going to go a little off piste and talk about the best food experience I had last year (a year which also included my first 3 star Michelin restaurant among many other memorable meals).

      There is a city called Logro?o, about a 3.5 hour train ride north of Barcelona, and worth every minute. It’s in the heart of the Rioja wine country, and is famous for Pintxo (a type of tapas). Logrono has a street called Calle Laurel which in the span of a couple of blocks has well over 50 tapas restaurants. Each has a different specialty, with the food on display (and also stuff to order off a menu hot from the kitchen)

      Think of the experience like a bar crawl (but with tapas). You walk down the street, stick your head into a restaurant, if the food looks good order a dish or two (maybe a glass of the local wine), and continue to the next place. When we were there we went to at least 10 different spots in a night and could easily have gone to many more if we weren’t so full.

      100% worth the trip. If you’re looking for specific recommendations I’d be happy to send them along, but it’s just as fun to walk down the street and experience it for yourself.

      Happy travels!

      Ben

        Hey Ben, awesome to hear from you, thank you for the food recommendations and for the story. Wow, that sounds like an incredible food experience. Unfortunately this trip is going to be so fast, and will just have 4 days in Barcelona. But hoping to take a longer trip to Spain in the future. Thanks again for your help!

      Hey Mark! You should definitely try menemen when you’re in turkey. It’s a traditional Turkish breakfast item & you can get it almost everywhere. Since I’m Turkish, living in Germany I don’t know that many restaurants in Istanbul. Dishes like Manti, Lahmacun, Kebap, B?rek, Baklava (!!) and many more are very famous and of course delicious! You can get these almost everywhere in Istanbul. Oh and don’t forget to try out seafood there!! I hope you’re going to have fun in turkey I’m not saying this because I’m Turkish but Turkish food is definitely the best. ??

      Hi Mark and Ying,

      I was just recently in Rome. You should try a gelato shop called Fatamorgana! There are three in Rome I think. They have all natural gelato with all kinds of original flavours and the taste is awesome! You can also try a restaurant called Dar Poeta (Vicolo del Bologna, 45, 00153 Roma) in Rome. Nice little restaurant with the best pizza’s I’ve ever tasted! The prices are great too!

      Mark, I understand you cannot fit in a trip to New Orleans on this trip, but it remains one of the primary food destinations in the US. If I remember correctly, you tasted a food truck in Hawaii that did Cajun and Creole foods. Give your followers a treat and make an expedition to New Orleans sometime – and order Crawfish Etouffee. Not to mention Po-Boys and Muffalettas. OK, enough, I am getting homesick for the food. We never forget the flavors that we grew up with, and the sad thing is that growing up we took so much of the foods for granted.

      I loved your Japan series. I would like to put in my request for another Japan destination. Hokkaido would be nice – in winter!

      • Mark Wiens

    • Aldi

      Hey Mark,

      I know you’ve just been to Indonesia but if you’re craving for Indonesian food in New York City you should go visit Asian Taste in Queens, they have a great selection of Indonesian food. From Mie Ayam to Pecel Lele to Pempek, they have a lot to offer.

      If you like Padang food too, you should definitely go to Upi Jaya which is also in Queens, their rendang and sate padang is amazing. Of course these food cannot compare to the food cooked in Indonesia but they are worth visiting.

      Also some recommendations:

      Joju – which sells Vietnamese bulgogi sandwiches (Queens)
      Jin Fong – Dim Sum place (Chinatown, Manhattan)
      Picnic Garden – Korean all you can eat barbecue place (Flushing, Queens)
      Zum Stammtisch – German restaurant – their J?gerschnitzel

      Have fun in your a round the world trip!

    • Sham Khan

      Hi Mark,

      Very excited about your trip. Here are my recommendations which are very dear to me, and I do hope you try them out:
      1)B&H Dairy, Manhattan, NYC: This is a historical New York Kosher institution with a long history of family ownership. It is known for a democratic atmosphere, especially during breakfast, where tired postmen who have been out since 6 AM have breakfast next to suited and booted Jewish bankers and lawyers.
      2)Lali Guras, Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC: Jackson Heights is possibly the largest immigrant enclave in NYC. It is particularly known for being a home to many Bangladeshis. A small minority, however, are the Tibetans and the Nepalis who despite being a small community own a lot of cool food joints. Lali Guras is the very best of those (though the recently closed Lhasa Fast Food, a tiny restaurant behind a phone shop, previously held this title, in my opinion). This is your typical hole in the wall joint, serving up incredibly cheap home food made with lots of love. You will adore it.

      Best of luck on your trip!

      In Stockholm you should definitely visit the “Str?mming” food truck outside the subway stop Slussen. They are pretty much the only ones who serve the traditional Swedish fried herring on hard bread (or if you prefer soft bread or even mashed potatoes). It’s cheap and delicious, and it’s located in a nice area.

We are both from New York so we have some recommendations for you. Roberta’s in Bushwick Brooklyn for one of the top 3 best pizzas in New York and lots of local people watching, Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos in bushwick Brooklyn – this place is a tortilla factory with a small restaurant attached. You can sit and eat in the open air garage area and watch them run the tortilla machines. chinantla in bed stuy brooklyn – a family owned Mexican grocery store with a restaurant in the back. The breaded beef cemita is the absolute best in Brooklyn. Happy travels!

      When you are in India please try some vegetarian dishes….. Some of the most popular vegetable curries are “dal Makhani” (lentil and kidney beans), “paneer tikka Masala” ( cottage cheese)…..
      You can ask at all good places how spicy you want them to be….. Don’t buy any sweet dishes…

      And one thing that concerns me is Indian food eaten at home and food eaten in restaurants is different… Curries are oily in restaurants…. At home we cook them with less oil. … So basically avoid going to a cheap restaurant in Mumbai as food will be tasty but unhealthy and you can only eat so much unhealthy food in one day…….
      Go to some of the finer establishments for a less oily and more spicy savoury curry

      Try vegetarian food in India…. See why half the population in India is vegetarian….. The Indian food has evolved over many millenia and you cannot even begin to try all…..

      How many days are you staying in Mumbai? And in which area???
      I could send some recommendations based on that….. Are you alright with going out of Mumbai???

      • Mark Wiens

        4 years ago

      Oh my god. Do I have a place for you in Lisbon! I went to Lisbon couple years ago. There is this hole in the wall place. It doesn’t even have a proper store name at the front of the restaurant. BUT the food was just out of this world. It’s called RESTAURANTE Zé DA MOURARIA. There are lots of good food in Portugal. I was honestly surprised. I haven’t had one bad meal the whole two weeks I was there.

      Another place is CERVEJARIA RAMIRO. Bourdain went there. There’s a long line up everyday, so go early. It’s pure seafood paradise, and it was my first time eating goose barnacles.

      When you are there, you have to eat bacalhua, the national dish of Portugal while you are there. It’s basically salted cod, and there are many ways to cook it. My favourite is Bacalhua in cream sauce. It’s good. But for me, it’s not life changing. It has a similar flavour to the Chinese salted fish.

      Love your food blogs and videos! Stumbled upon your site looking for recommendations in Yangon and been a subscriber ever since!
      Great to know that you will be visiting my hometown, Mumbai, as part of your Round-the-world tour. All the recommendations you have received so far (270+) are great (Yes, I did read through every one of them!) and I had to think to write in one which hadn’t already been mentioned.
      If you would like to experience authentic local cuisine with a host family – reach out to a group called Authenticook (www.authenticook.com). These guys organize meals that showcase cuisines from across India at homes of host families in Mumbai. I’d especially recommend the “Dine with the Kolis” meal – a sea food extravaganza from a fishing community with strong roots in Mumbai.
      Wish I were in Mumbai, would have been great to catch up and exchange food stories! Wishing Ying and you delightful food-ventures ahead! Looking forward to all the videos!

      Hey Mark! Very excited to know about the round-the-world trip. I would be eagerly waiting for your videos. But as a suggestion, instead of visiting only the metro cities of India like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, I would want you to visit the states of North-East India. Food in this region is really unique and completely different from the rest of the country. Its food also share some similarities with Thai cuisine (Ying would love it). Hence, I would really want you to pay a visit to this beautiful region someday. Anyway, all the best for the trip and happy journey in advance.

      * They serve only traditional italian food, made exclusively out of italian ingredients provided by small local enterprises.

      * the seating outside is actually on road as you like it from Asia ??

      * There are Bishops coming to eat there as it’s super close to Vatican so the food must be heavenly (it reslly is).

      * the place has a fantastic flair. I was there just once 4 year ago and loved it.

      Not so sure about “Restaurants” in Mumbai. I’ve mostly ate by food stalls, which I’m sure you’ve already done.
      I’d recommend you try and meet up with these guys Rocky and Mayur

      Hi Mark,

      I am glad that you are going on this exciting trip. You will definitely like all the places you visit. I am a great food lover my self. I live in Dubai but I’m originally half turkish and half italian. Once you are in Muscat you should definitely try the common arabian gulf dish which is called MANDI. It actually comes from the Yemmeni cuisine however it is very popular among all the gulf countries. You should try goat mandi preferably haneed which are the rips. Unfortunately I don’t know any good places in Muscat for that but you should try to get hold of some omanis who can traditionally prepare it for you. They usually cook it under the sand which makes it nice and tender. In any case those are the places I recommend for you in istanbul:
      – Nusret: its a little expensive however they make the best meat you can imagine. Its technically the turkish version of kobe beef
      – Mado: great place for turkish breakfast and desserts(especially turkish ice cream)
      – Balik Ekmek: Turkish fish bread that they sell directly from the boats close to the galata bridge
      – Turkish Mussels which you can find in Beyoglu district
      You should also definitely try Lahmacun which is turkish pizza and manti which is Turkish pasta.
      For Manti I would recommend you to go to Bodrum Caffe.
      I hope this helps
      Enjoy your trip ??

      In NYC, definitely check out Wo Hop in Chinatown on Mott St. it’s been around forever. Make sure you go to the basement one. Also Joe’s Shanghai is really good for soup dumplings.

      In HK, you definitely need to eat the pineapple bun with butter inside & their milk tea, it is soooo good

      Also visit K?z?lkayalar in the taksim square (near the entrance of istiklal avenue) and try ISLAK(LITERALLY WET) BURGER. IT’S AMAZING IT’S A MUST TRY

      New Yorker here! We have some of the best Chinese food in the country.
      – Golden Shopping Mall: Try Sichuan at Chengdu Tianfu (dan dan mien, mapo tofu, double-cooked pork, water-cooked fish…) and Tian Jin Dumpling House (lamb dumplings with squash). Original branch of Xi’an Famous Foods is also there, which is now a mini-chain in NYC but it’s still delicious (lamb noodles)
      – Xiao long bao at Nan Xiang Dumpling House
      – Best Sichuan is a bit out of the way of Flushing, out in College Point, at a place called Little Pepper. It’s a schlep, but you won’t regret it if you go. Amazing.
      – In Manhattan, the best Chinese I’ve had is at Spicy Village – try the Big Tray Chicken.

      Some other favorites…
      – Tibetan momos just off the 7 train in Jackson Heights, Queens at a cart called Potala Fresh Momo
      – Mexican tortas at Tortas Neza in Corona, Queens
      – South Indian dosas in Flushing, Queens at the Ganesh Temple Canteen (basement canteen of a temple)

      Even though I lived in Brooklyn, I went to Queens constantly just to eat. Make sure you set aside a day to do Queens justice – on the whole, you’ll find the most diverse, authentic ethnic food in all of NYC.

      Enjoy!

      There are some recommendations i give to all my friends who are travelling to Rome, and I of course will give them to you, Mark. ??

      There are three locations in Rome you should absolutely visit, ranked by awesomeness:

      #1: “I vicini bistrot” – This is a VERY little bistrot (near Pantheon) with minimalistic food, but awesome tastes! You will fly in heaven, it is unbelievable! Almost everything there is from familiy production. You will love the owner, he is very open, talkative and warmhearted, he loves food as much as all of us here do. I think, you and him would be able to easily do some conversation. ??

      #2: “Frigidarium” – A little Gelateria by the street of Via del Governo Vecchio (it is in the center), serving the best ice cream in the city. Believe me, you will eat there three times a day – one for breakfast, lunch and dinner each! ??

      #3: “Pianostrada Laboratorio Di Cucina” – A crowded little (everything good is little, haha) gem in Trastevere. This Cucina is run by three lovely ladys, who will server you tasty fish burgers with black buns, and even better sandwiches with their special jellys (yum!)

      Also, another recommendation from me if you want to stay via Airbnb:
      https://www.airbnb.de/rooms/2330582
      This apartment is really nice with its own charm, at one of the most vibrant streets with balcony (really romantic in the evening/night!), and the best part: it is RIGHT in the center! you can reach everything by foot in about 20 minutes that is worth visiting.

      The last i have been there with my girlfriend was last year.
      We would really love it, if you visit these locations we appreciated the most. ??

      All in all, we are looking forward to your world trip and are totally jealous! Have fun, and suprise us with your findings!

      Best wishes
      Robert & Tatjana

      Hi Mark! love your videos. I do an impersonation of your “mmmmmm” when you take that initial bite of any food and my wife finds it hilarious. Anyways, my wife and i met in NYC and have a few recommendations that you will likely hear from other people:

      1) Totto Ramen (two locations now) – long waits at the Hell’s Kitchen location. Go to the Mid-Town East location during non-peak hrs. Best chicken broth ramen you will ever have! Also get the mayo don with chasu.
      2) Joe’s Ginger (Chinatown) – soup dumplings. much better than din tai fung in my opinion
      3) Halal Guys (a street cart / 53rd st and 6th ave) – famous drunk food in NYC. Make sure to go to the original. A lot of carts have popped up on that corner over the years.

      Got many more but i’m sure you’ll have a giant list. Can’t wait to see the videos!

      Stockholm local here! Believe it or not – there is local street food here in the north. And it is delicious, relatively affordable and unlike anything you’ve tried before. ?? Plus we have a unique coffee culture here that you have to experience for yourself. ??

      I would love to see you try these things:

      Best fish soup in the world: “Kajsa’s fisk” (in the food court H?torgshallen)
      Best fried herring in the world: “Nystekt str?mming”-truck (near Metro stop Slussen)
      Best cinnamon bun in the world (with a coffee on the side of course) + wonderful scenery: “Rosendal tr?dg?rd” (A wonderful café on our huge park island, Djurg?rden)
      Best elk/reindeer sausage: “The hairy pig deli” (Gamla stan)
      Best swedish meatballs in the world: “Meatballs for the people” (S?dermalm)

      Enjoy, you two! ?? Hej and v?lkommna in Stockholm! Have a wnderful time here!

      Hi Mark, I’ve been to a handful of those cities!

      Here’s what you should try:

      4. Rome, Italy
      – Pizzarium (as visited by Bourdain), you can’t skip this
      – Roman pasta, this includes carbonara (must), cacio e pepe (must) and amatriciana. We went to Roscioli which is a bit of a food institute (they also serve up fresh burrata)
      – Roman style pizza – Pizzeria da Remo
      – Gelati – My 3 favourite gelaterias: Gelateria del Teatro, Gelateria Fatamorgana, Il Gelato di Claudio Torce
      – Also you should go on a porchetta hunt! (didn’t get to do this myself) If you have time you should venture out of town for it, as shown here (I’ve gotten a lot of my Rome inspiration from Katie Parla): http://katieparla.com/porchetta-il-norcino-bernabei-marino-laziale/

      6. Barcelona, Spain
      – eat at the Boqueria Market. There’s 2 counter-style restaurants there, Bar Pinotxo and el Quim (which I went to). The eggs and octopus was incredibly good!
      – eat lots of iberico jamon! (everywhere)
      – tapas, Quimet i Quimet, for something more modern Tapas 24 was fantastic
      – a seafood place, we went to Paco Meralgo. Things you should hunt for are Palamos prawns and goose barnacles (which I’m sure will be a new experience for you!) Ohh… and it is expensive.
      – I know you asked for “local restaurants”, but if you can splurge a little, Tickets is the place to reserve (2 months in advance). It’s run by Albert Adria (Ferran’s brother) which together they ran El Bulli (what people consider the world’s best restaurant)

      8. New York City, United States
      – 2 of the best burger chains in the east coast, Shake Shack and Five Guys
      – Peter Luger still in my mind is the best steak I’ve ever had! Please go!
      – Russ & Daughters – bagels, cream cheese, salmon
      – Katz’s Delicatessen – the pastrami
      – Pizza, this is going to be tough. Di Fara is probably the most famous (haven’t been), but I hear great things from Best Pizza in Brooklyn (the owner is the host for the Pizza Show on Munchies – Youtube)
      – Doughnut Plant for doughnuts
      – Other miscellaneous cuisines you could try is Polish (Veselka), Mexican (Tacombi at Fonda Nolita), Ramen (Ippudo) – also get the pork belly baos

      Hope that helps (kind of jealous of you going to Istanbul).

      Cheers,
      Alister

      Hello, Mark,

      In Bombay try two restaurants, one in Calaba and the other in Fort. In Calaba go to Gokul, a working-class place with great local food. Try their masala pomfret.
      A little farther north in Fort try Modern Hindu Hotel, a South Indian restaurant that hasn’t changed a tad since 1926. It’s on the fourth floor in its building. In fact, here is a brief Youtube video of the place by your Indian counterpoint. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7tHKZjH5rU

      Hi Mark! Awsome trip! Saw The itinarary looks amasing. Im from sweden and when ever i go to Stockholm i use a app called streetk?k. Im not affiliated With The developers but must say IF you look for foodtruck experience in Stockholm It’s usefull. IF you have Time i would recomend you go to Malm? in The south part of sweden. The devercity of food is amazing close to copenhagen aswell. In Malm? visit M?llan The food center of south sweden a multicultural market. Have a awsome tripp and we who follow are indeed in for a treat. Best of luck / CJ

      Hi Mark,

      My boyfriend and I are big fans. We’re both NY natives from Queens. NY’s culinary scene represents the entire world, so much of which you’ve already experienced firsthand. While we frequent many great Asian and Middle Eastern restaurants, we don’t think any of them (including halal guys) are
      as good as the ones in Asia/Middle East. That being said, it was fun to narrow down what’s unique to the States/NY. Here goes:

      -katz deli for pastrami sandwich (sit at the counter)
      -russ and daughters cafe (http://www.russanddaughterscafe.com/) for
      smoked fish platters as well as bagels and bialy
      -Fette Sau (http://www.fettesaubbq.com/) for traditional and Hometown
      BBQ (http://www.hometownbarbque.com/) for less traditional BBQ.
      -Robertas (http://www.robertaspizza.com/) for NY style neopolitan pizza
      with creative toppings and sides
      -Maison Premiere (http://maisonpremiere.com/) for oyster happy hour
      (5-7, get there early) for a sample of $1-$1.50 regional oysters from
      all over united states including NY.
      – Mu Ramen- non-traditional Ramen which is why we included it. (http://ramennyc.wix.com/popup)

      For a more upscale but still informal meal try:

      -Estela (http://www.estelanyc.com/) near Houston St for many creative small
      plates including squid ink rice. This place, despite being informal
      made it to top 50 restaurants in
      world….(http://www.theworlds50best.com/list/1-50-winners#t1-50).

      We hope you guys have a GREAT time.

      Pao & Max

      PS. Mumbai recommendations coming soon.

        OH, and:

        Di Fara Pizza- My boyfriend insists. I’m not a stand in long lines for a $5 slice of pizza type of girl, but I’ll admit it’s very NY pizza (https://www.yelp.com/biz/di-fara-pizza-brooklyn).

        Hey Pao & Max, thank you very much. And this is exactly what I was looking for. I know NYC has food from all over the world, but I’d really love to focus on exactly the types of places you’ve mentioned. Thank you for your support, and greetings to Max as well!

      Hi Mark

      For pintxos in Barcelona try La Tasqueta de Blai on Carrer de Blai. Great local hangout, selection of 40+ pintxos at a 1 euro each that change throughout the day. Lovely staff and great atmosphere.

      Hey Mark!

      I cannot wait for your blog posts and vlogs!

      A few recommendations:

      1) NYC: Pershing Square for some classic NYC diner style Pancakes, a humungous pizza slice at Artichoke Basille’s and for a late night cheap filler, the original Halal Bro’s rice! If Ying and you want to spoil yourselves, 2 Michelin starred Maria lunch is great eating.

      2) Rome: Everywhere is consistently good but nothing made my day more amazing than a meal at VinAllegro! Smoked cheese with truffles is wow! Just an FYI not to eat near main squares. A cup of coffee that is usually 2 euros becomes 6 euros as the cover charge for sitting in these areas are around 3-4 euros!

      3) Stockholm = Meatballs all day long for me. I did a weekend there and had three serves of meatballs. I suggest you go to Pelikan restaurant. The mash was the best of the lot and the meatballs sensational.

      Have fun, stay safe and keep blogging.
