  • AMAZING street food around the world TOUR in 2017! 2017 was the BEST year of my life! We had a ton of Chinese food and Chinese street food, so much Indian food and Indian street food, and ate street food all around Asia in 2017.
    This street food vlog is a year end summary of all the places we traveled to to eat street food and all the amazing street food adventures we went on. None of this would have been possible without you!

    We started off 2017 in Sichuan, China, the land of spicy and numbing hot pot and incredibly flavourful Sichuan cuisine. I had just dropped out of culinary school to go full-time foodrangin, creating these food and travel videos for you, and it was the best feeling ever. This was honestly the best decision of my life.
    After Sichuan, we flew into Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to go on a Malaysian street food tour with our friend Chuchu. We had awesome durian and a lot of Chinese, Indian, and Malay street food specialties.
    After Malaysia, we flew into Delhi, and made a couple Indian street food tour vlogs before flying to Thailand and eating a JUMBO lobster in Hua Hin. It was so delicious! We then traveled to the south of Thailand and I proposed to Ting on the beach!
    Afterwards, we traveled back to Guangzhou, to eat Cantonese food like dim sum and have some awesome WHOLE ROAST PIG!
    After this we took the high speed train to Guilin and found some amazing Guilin rice noodles and
    Then we came back to our base in Chengdu and did one more Sichuan street food tour before going on one of the best trips of my life. We took the train all the way from Chengdu to the far west of China’s Xinjiang province along the ancient Silk Road, and discovered so many amazing specialties and friendly people. Apart from proposing to Ting, This was 100 percent the highlight of 2017, going DEEP into Xinjiang, meeting so many Uighur locals and trying their incredible food. We found so many amazing Dishes like lamb stuffed pockets from a tandoor oven, HUGE chunks of lamb meat from a tandoor oven, tons of INSANELY delicious hand pulled noodles, and a huge spectrum of unique street dishes like lamb skull meat, mixed organs and more, which all made Xinjiang the highlight of 2017 and a must visit destination for food lovers around the world. Here is where we found #5, the DAPANJI big chicken plate spicy chicken dish infused with cinnamon and star anise on top of thick hand pulled noodles. Slurping the noodles covered in that fragrance is absolutely mind-blowing. Here in Xinjiang, You can go really deep into local farmers markets and have a unique travel experience you’ll never forget.
    After Xinjiang, we flew in to Hong Kong for a Hong Kong street food tour video and then into Beijing to eat with our friend Chuchu again.
    After this we traveled to Vietnam from north to south, Borneo Malaysia for some amazing bamboo chicken, and then to Indonesia and discovered the true beauty of Nasi Padang.
    We flew back into Sichuan and hit 1 Million Subscribers, created a giveaway for 2 round trip flight tickets, and then went on our Southern Silk Road tour from Chengdu to Yunnan. After this we spent 1 month in India making Indian street food videos before flying back to North America for a few weeks with my family!
    2017 was really the best year of my life. It was the year I learned that you can create any crazy dream you have for yourself, pursue it, and achieve it. In one year, we brought this channel from 100,000 subscribers to 1 million, and now with you following us, we are able to travel full time and create more videos for you.

    Loll! May not be the bottled water. It's the pani puri or 1 of the foods which they have eaten with some heavy spice. India has good food but when it comes to sanitation people tend to give a deaf year. The conditions are improving though. Do drink bottled water when any of u do come to India.

    Trevor, You mentioned you dropped out of culinary school to film Food Ranger full time. One of the things I would love to see, even if only periodically, is a "special" episode on how to actually make some of the amazing food. Many of the foods I look up from your show just don't have recipes online, or in english at least. Since my girlfriend is from China, she loves when I make authentic Chinese food for her. Many of the channels on here are great, but not a lot cover authentic Chinese street food. Just a thought/wish from a fellow Canadian!
    BTW, congratulations on the engagement. I'm going to Tianjin next fall to meet my girlfriends parents ... ;-)
