Let’s try it out I can hear the slurping Chongqing xiaomian are a world of their own With different variations all throughout the city But they usually have lard Msg Onions Garlic Ginger Peanuts Cilantro Mustard tuber Vinegar Chili oil And a lot of Sichuan peppercorn powder The resulting flavor is much stronger than Chengdu’s dan dan mian And will really blow you away Happy new year Happy new year! OK This looks incredible My mouth is watering Chongqing specialty xiaomian With wanza peas Oh yeah Oh just look how thick that is This is what I came to Chongqing for OH wow Oh my That is incredibly unique The peas They give it this creaminess And that sesame paste in there gives it a nuttiness That is the most powerful bowl of noodles I’ve ever had It’s very spicy Very earthy Very numbing A lot of the time Noodles can be like nice and comforting and ooh that’s nice But this is like in your face BOOM I’m on fire Next up I had a recommendation to go try the pig feet hot pot Deep on a side street for lunch on the outside of Chongqing We made our way out And found the place to be packed full with a huge lineup Wow Look at that It arrives right when you come in This huge pot Look at that It’s full of pig feet Look at that It’s full of pig feet There is all these pig feet Look right there SO fatty And that spicy broth Oh it’s full of veg That is just pure fat OK Oh it’s like chewing on It’s pure fat It’s like chewing on a thick layer of fat With a slight touch of meat to it that is really spicy Maybe eating the pig feet isn’t my style But the flavor is good Ting Ting grew up with these and she is loving them I’m just going to add that to her pile here This part is my favorite part It’s like really tender and really smooth But this part it’s really fatty I don’t really like it This is my favorite part and then the skin And I’m not going to eat that And then I like to suck around the bones And that’s really nice thing to do And you can really taste the flavor from the bone From sucking it It’s really tender Next up for a mid day snack I made my way deep into a back neighbourhood And found a little street market to explore Thats one of the joys of food inspired travel You can go deep into markets and find local little spots that serve authentic and delicious food With friendly locals to chat with They are making the chaoshou right here Chaoshou wontons I can tell that’s going to be spicy Wow Look at that Look at this insane bowl Oh it’s red Packed with chilies This looks like it’s really spicy Look at all the crunchy soybeans in there Let’s try that out It’s so smoky Oh that is incredibly smoky and spicy And the crunchy soybeans in there Oh yeah For dinner I made my way to another back market on the other side of town Where I heard there was the best douhua silken tofu and spicy beef This looks insane I am at wuming douhua Which means no name tofu So this whole restaurant is named after this silken tofu dish right here Sometimes, when you find a place that isn’t pretty Deep in a market or sidestreet You’re uncertain about whether the food will be clean and delicious Foodrangin’ gives you a sense that the deeper you go The more locals there are dining at a place The food usually gets better and better And that couldn’t be any more true than with these little hole in the wall locations that I found in Chongqing So we have a lot of dishes here This is the douhua silken tofu With their own chili paste That is thick And that is the specialty here Silken tofu And we are going to dip it right into their own chili paste There is so many varieties of chili flavour here in Sichuan This chili paste is a little more smoky and granular It has a gritty deliciousness to it This is shuizhuroupian Super super juicy beef slices In so much chili oil And dried chilies And what’s this here? Oh, bean sprouts Oh the beef is so juicy here That’s great Wow It’s so nice when I have people come up and say they have seen my videos It fills me with this sense of satisfaction that hopefully some people are enjoying them At this point Ting Ting and I were happy with the amount of video that we got from our short trip to Chongqing But wanted to shoot a little more scenery for the background shots And while we were doing so A couple subscribers invited us to sit down with them and taste the food OK so just walking by here and a couple subscribers noticed They are having chuan churn here And so we are going to try it out Just gotta say a huge thank you to Weiran and Ali For inviting me out here As I walk by To taste this hai hao chi de chuan chuan So thanks for watching guys See you byebye

  10. HUGE THANKS to ExpressVPN for offering all Food Ranger viewers 3 months free and 49% off their yearly package using this link: https://ExpressVPN.com/Thefoodranger . Travelers need ExpressVPN to stay safe online and to unblock any site. I personally use it for Netflix, even while at home in Canada, but also while traveling to unblock content and episodes that are geoblocked, and I also use it for security, because airport wifi and hotel wifi is often very insecure, leaving my data vulnerable. By connecting to one of their servers around the world, it’s just like my computer or phone is in that location, and all data sent while connected to their VPN is secure, safe, and private from others to see, so I know that my data won’t be hacked or looked at by others. Thanks so much for watching, and we have tons more videos coming up for you! Please leave me a comment below letting me know what you thought about this episode, thanks so much!!!

  11. The best noodles are in the countryside of Shaanxi, the peasants home made thinly sliced noodles in soups with saozi., not the noodles sold in the city restaurant.

  12. One bad intestine experience and it really can make you a little gun shy from then on. The Russian Roulette of food experiences.

  13. I just love your videos. Got to know a bit more about our neighbouring country through your food tour. Love from India.

  14. 卧槽那个六块钱,我浙江杭州这一个小破镇,那个种很小皮很薄的馄饨,肉都没鼻屎大,酱料也没,清汤加葱,一点味道都没有,也要六块钱。我看这video里的馄饨好大肉也好多汤也很多汁。

  15. Genuine question, how did that guy who came up to Trevor saying he watched his vid 2 days ago, he went USA etc, how did he watch the vid? I thought YouTube and western internet was banned there?
