I can't believe you don't.

You don't have a series, and you told me that there's news about that.

Yes, I mean it was an honor to be a part of a HBO show which is called food, Affairs when's it coming out, so it actually.

It just came out amazing, so I'm Gonna Leave a link for you guys for sure.

Are we getting close yeah we're just about here, and this is so she's awesome, oh and look at all the chicken wings Chris this place is famous for their chicken wings.

Oh look at this chicken wings.

Yeah everybody in here is no nose.

Mark we're in a mark Queen's classic.

Oh, so you will you write your order.

You can write it or you can just kind of like point at it.


Can you read Ty I! Can if it's food? Okay, come try Chris, you like Pala Bala is not my favorite Mark I I knew that this question would come up, but I'm gonna make a commitment to eat anything that you put in front of me today.

Okay, it may not go so well at times, but I'll give anything that you want to feed me a try.

Okay, I only get this experience once in a lifetime Mark.

So that's Chris, so torture, me cup, okay I've, always wondered how this guy eats so much every single video he makes well I'm about to find out.

Are we getting some of those wings gotta get those wings? That's a must yeah and I like how they keep them really like this really low Smoky fire, so they kind of smoke at the same time right yeah, embedding each wing with that fire smokiness we're going from Smoky Buffalo at Mark's place to Smoky Wings when what's the name of this place, sometimes Jason, sometimes Jason's, the owner, yep she's, the one who pounds the salads, yeah yeah I know this place is really good.

This place is great.

What are you eating a lot of things? Foreign yeah you're from Bangkok, yes, sir, oh nice, okay, Mark, was kind enough to get me a sometime tie.

You know what the ties say when I order sometime, they say you, you eat like my baby, because I always I order, sometime, Thai and and then Haley orders, just one chili, okay, if it gets too spicy when I first came to Thailand I like I, liked something Thai in that kind of sweet and sour flavor.

But then, when I discovered, Bala and started getting used to it, it's like I could not go back to sometimes just the complexity of that fermented.

Fish sauce, which I think just and does this one go back? No, it doesn't so we got one okay and one without yeah, okay, yeah, so sometimes just uh palm sugar, lime juice, fish sauce, but not fermented fish open cob.

So this is the Tam tang and what is that cucumber with crab and fermented fish sauce? So this is just a classic tambala and then one of the seeds on top the seeds are mecatine, I believe in English it's called the white papanax seeds.

Do you know the SATA stink beans yeah, like babies, they're like babies? Oh really, but they're, not as pungent I love it.

You just eat them plain yeah, raw or with numb pick dip it in chili sauce, and then we got some of those delectable Wings they're, so good, Mouse, water and a couple: oh yeah, that's the common Young pork neck.

This one is the namtok, the the table, pork, salad, the table's filling up Mark.

Do we still have more I think we have a couple more dishes.

I knew this was gonna happen.

Oh here it is Chris.

That's the one you were talking about there.

It is okay, so it looks like we've uh, pretty much gotten everything.

This is most of what we got.

Yes, so it's true, Mark Wiens has a big appetite and this man loves to eat you.

You were telling me why.

Why did you uh move to Thailand and and start traveling when you were young to eat? Oh yeah for the food? Okay, Where, Do, We, Begin Chris? You should try this first, the lambadook yeah all right, so she chops up all of the d-bones.

The catfish and then chops it up with galangal and chilies and Sawtooth coriander and shallots.

Oh I, got duck too forgot about that cheers.

Man my first time trying this one.

Oh my God whoa the galangal in there.

Oh it pops taste that cocoa, the The Toasted rice powder in there really nicely too wrapped with a little sticky rice, yeah I, think we got to move in for the.

So is this one really spicy? This might be pretty spicy.

Look at the color of that the redness of that okay, you show me how it's done.

This is the dish that I I've been I've.

Been scared of I woke up fearful of this dish, so much flavor, it's one of those chilies that will start to build on.

You I think! Oh really, it comes on slow, but it keeps on coming.

I! Think so fill me up a spoon okay, I'll eat.

Whatever you put on it, you need some of those Papa next seeds, all kinds of chilies on here in here there is okay, so man, those white puppy, neck scenes, have a nice crunch to them, stand clear! Everyone I! Don't know what's gonna happen here: oh yeah, that has some spice to it.

Mmm we have the spice kind of start slow, but it creeps it builds.

It builds yeah, oh yeah, then now the space is coming on.

It kind of hits you in the back of the throat I.

Think you just dip the sticky rice right in at a nothing like sticky, rice, fresh hot, sticky, rice, oh well, there were about 60 seconds after I ate that bite and it's uh.

It's still coming on it's starting to cook.

Yes, so we can move into the cucumber cucumber, pounded.

Salad again, you can see there's quite a lot of dry chilies pounded up in here, so this one is also spicy.

Okay, now it's getting real.

Oh I've made a grave mistake, letting this guy load up my spoon.

He doesn't shy away from the chilies.

As we all know, I couldn't see how that blueberry would be addictive, like powerful flavor, but it's so much Umami.

So much like depth of flavor yeah I went into some sauce.

I need the sauce for the well he's distracted.

I'm gonna have something that's a little less spicy.

My mouth is on fire all right Chris.

We got the the numb Jim here we're ready to dig into those chicken wings so grab a wing yeah there's a number of different strategies.

You could probably do the poor method.

You could do the dip method, Mark's going with a classic dip method, dip right off the stick here: the crispiness of that skin, the sweetness of that sauce from The Tamarind, really good, so Mark went with the dip method.

I'm gonna go with the spoon and pour method.

Let's just see, I'm gonna mess it up over here, a little bit Mark, but I'm gonna get a nice bunch of that on there.

Oh, my it's nice and tender because, like you were saying it's a bit slow, grill I'll be coming back to this place.

Oh it's starting to pick up now we got here just before the lunchtime, Rush yeah I.

Think there's a lot of my viewers out there kind of wouldn't know how to tackle a place like this, where the menu is all in Thai.

They don't know.

What's going on, I.

Think you can look for a couple of Clues like if you don't speak Thai, one of them, for instance, you'll notice, the big clay jars at the front, you'll notice that she's pounding things up, then it's definitely an issan restaurant that serves green papaya, salad, it's so visual right! You can see they're growing things, so you might just kind of like ocean over there.

I want some of those and yeah that guy's just got whatever you get is going to be good I.

Think a lot of people come to Bangkok, especially maybe, if they've come from the first time- and they have this- maybe misconception that these places they might not look like the cleanest restaurants in town, but they serve up the most delicious food that you can get here for sure for sure nice to meet you nice to meet you hey, Richard, I'm, Murray, from where you're from Canada, which part of Toronto.

Now? What do you think when you came in here and you saw Mark Wayne's eating um I was done.

Thank you.

Guys recommended this restaurant to us, though, so he's the reason you're here, yeah yeah so enjoy your meal.

You as well cheers look at that marbling on that pork neck.

Oh yeah, look at that! This is one gotta get all-time favorites.

What's that sauce called um, give it the old dip [Music]! Everything in here is such a nice Smoky flavor.

Well, he's grilling this one up he's got like the half barrel, we're actually smoking him where he's smoking them yeah yeah.

So this one I discovered that one actually in our neighbor's hometown of Toronto and that's got a lovely flavor to it.

Yeah it's like a grilled pork, salad, I'm, just going to rehydrate that a little bit meaty [Music] that lime juice to offset it the herbs in there.

Look at that! Oh yeah floppy! That's a bite right! There dripping with juices.

It was super tender, but a bit of a bit of crunch in the back.

Oh yeah man, this one to me just epitomizes, the flavors of esam I'm gonna, follow it up with more of this, the catfish yeah, oh man, that's this I can't get it that to me, is you guys could ever find this dish at a restaurant, a new Sam restaurant.

You have to try that dish.

It is the greatest so for this next one we're going in with sticky rice all right make a little ball.

We're gonna do it.

At the same time, all right man and Mark I'm gonna, try and match your reaction.

This is where stuff gets real.

All right, Wow Let's see I'm with the king of food reactions.

I'm gonna try my best to keep up ready, [Music], oh wow, oh wow, wow! This is a good guy sitting next to me, ma'am.

How are you out there who watches videos like these two here? How awesome is it to be sitting next to mark? Thank you, amazing.

The chili Buzz is that what you call it just as my mouse started to cool off I've decided to go back in for sometimes makes you grasp a little bit everyone's getting their food.

This place is starting to crack.

This is a lunchtime rush in a local Thai restaurant, the scene of the crime.

Here, oh yeah, flavor overdose.

It's like Surfers ride waves.

Man I was riding waves at chili Heats.

That's what Easton food is to me.

It's just waves of flavors, yeah and different heat levels.

You know it's not that heavy too I like it.

You know it's very refreshing.

This is about as good as it gets outside of isan right here.

Thank you.

Thank you.

All right! Well, I'm stuffed to work.

How are you feeling happy yeah? Oh man, extremely happy.

Well, thanks a lot for doing that.

Yeah, so number one on the Bangkok list is uh, go where he tells you and enjoy a nice local Thai meal.
