– So check this out, it’s
Trevor James, I’m once again at a super busy morning
market here in Chengdu bright and early, we’re going deep,
we’re gonna try out a lot of cool stuff today, go for a
walk around the local market here, okay, let’s check it out. (speaking Chinese) Okay. This looks like some sort of (speaking Chinese) Deep fried pork. (speaking Chinese) So these deep fried pork strips
are in sweet potato batter. (speaking Chinese) And eggs. Wow, look at that! It’s covered in spicy chilies now. We’re gonna go for the first test. (speaking Chinese) Wow! But it’s awesome because the
yolk is still a little runny. It like, pops in your mouth. And it actually tastes
just like a normal egg. (speaking Chinese) It’s still warm! It’s warm, look at this, look at this. Okay we’re going in, we’re going in. (speaking Chinese) Okay, okay, awesome. Mmm! Cool. Wow, that is super oily though. I need something else
for breakfast, honestly. But that is awesome, it’s crispy. The texture is just like a
really really soft pumpkin. Awesome. Let’s go check it out, let’s
go see what else there is. This is an awesome market,
part two here and I’ve already got all these snacks,
most of them deep fried. I’m looking for something
else, something a little healthier perhaps. This is a bustling, wow! (speaking Chinese) Okay we’re gonna try it out. (speaking Chinese) It’s stewed beef, wow! Wow. (speaking Chinese) That’s a huge chunk. That’s a huge chunk. (speaking Chinese) Okay. (speaking Chinese) He’s gonna cut it up for me. Mmm! (speaking Chinese) Actually it’s kind of weird. I don’t know if I like that texture. It’s kind of mushy. It actually tastes just like ham. (speaking Chinese) Dip it, look at all that
lajow he just gave me. Oh, yeah. So they’ve got it all
here, really fresh produce, fresh veg, fresh noodles. Oh, (speaking Chinese) Look at that, right in the jar. (speaking Chinese) That is a spicy broad bean paste. Super salty and spicy, awesome. (Speaking Chinese) It’s fermented, and that’s
where the beauty comes from. Awesome, put that in the
wok when you’re cooking. Living the dream. (Speaking Chinese) Awesome! (speaking Chinese) Okay, I got something else
on my mind now actually. Lheng Ben Sai which is just
over there, it’s like a cold Sichuan salad. (speaking Chinese) Oh yeah, look at those rice noodles. (speaking Chinese) Bamboo, awesome. (speaking Chinese) Oh well, it’s gonna be good
though once she gives it to me. (speaking Chinese) I’ve got a fat Sichuan salad
here, look at that plump bag of goodies, oh yeah, it’s cold. It’s wet, it’s got a lot
of tofu skin in there. Awesome, and they have no
chopsticks because this is not meant to be eaten on the
street, so I’m going in with the hands, okay we’re
gonna have a slice of that. We’re gonna have a slice of
that tofu pi with a little jargen which is a Sichuan fish root. Let’s try it out. Mmm! Tastes almost just like fish. Like a mix between fish and cilantro. And it’s covered in a Sichuan spicy oil. (speaking Chinese) Yeah, some of the nicest
people, I’m telling you. Please leave me a comment

other two videos on this market as well. Thanks again, and leave me a comment.

    炸猪肉 fried pork strips are not supposed to be eaten by themselves, they are usually cooked in a stew with other vegetables and seafood.

    I am really enjoying watching all the videos. I think they are well done and they are packed with you actually being knowledgeable about the food and culture and hey, we love to see food porn. You could find words other than "fragrant" and "aromatic" though, to be honest. The MMMM oh yeah is your signature move.

    I was gonna say you have done a great job in translating the tricky names and even the way how they cook them into English, wow and you done it instantly as well, sometimes I find it hard to explained to my frds how some of the chinese food is cooked, learn a lot from you !!

    Serious question: I heard MSG is seriously unhealthy and can disturb your hunger sense. Aren't you concerned? They seem to add MSG to dish.

    HUGE THANKS to ExpressVPN for offering all Food Ranger viewers 3 months free and 49% off their yearly package using this link: . 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!!!
