I love it. It's a bit salty. Oh too salty. I went overboard, but the flavors are so fresh, so delicious, and so spicy. Here we have the banana. I'm curious to see what it looks like. I want to tell you something before we eat it when I'm not saying anything don't blame me because when I'm enjoying something sometimes I just want to create a new word like okay it would be nice to have this on the beach or something okay I'll let you in peace, it's fine, think about it, it's fine Greetings mr. hot banana fall still good it's warm and it's getting the spice going in your mouth and pretty new a spice huh just a nice texture a little crunchy but very fluffy soft breading on the outside it's like milky on the milky side too Oh what do we do? i got here man here we have all the different snacks that people are used to eating mainly for brunch what are some of the most popular street foods in general is barbecue mmm yeah people really like to eat that on the night before go home Are we going to have a barbecue sometime today?
Yes, what is this? This is a fried donut. Yes, it looks good. This is a crepe crepe. being a white it's just food coloring yeah to give a different look to a candy it really reminds me of the philippines they also make it pretty pretty dietary bright orange though it doesn't have any effect on the taste let's go for it oh it's like candy sweet mother Cusco, this is so sweet it has that firm texture of sugary coconut. I love it Doan hey enjoy it ok bye we just walked into this kind of outdoor cafe. This place is busy at lunch time. busy like these seats at breakfast in morning lunch except you know what kind of food they are for sure here mainly everything is based on rice with some beans or lets say blue or chicken and pork you know how much it is per plate everyone can afford it because it's like about $3,000 70 80 cents less than a dollar for lunch and my men how are they?
Can I give a brief boom in the pound? What are you going to eat today? lunch, so we'll also have fried chicken, vegetables, baked beans, and white rice. I have created a kind of volcano with my rice and my beans will go there. Oh yes, go home. piece of rice while I eat my delicious beans if I can have the fruit oh yeah green it's all yours are you ready yeah let's go for it men rice and beans are like best friends when the bean sauce soaks into the rice, everything is saturated and salty, we have zboob sausages and maybe. some stuffing slow sausage low light hi oil some rice this is a bite of
heavenright here let's go for it i like sausage it's a little spicy salt and just kind of greasy sausage always a good bet is this style of eating a different antenna than other cities that have left.
Have you talked to Corby's people much more in the background? Yeah yeah, you can definitely feel it's crazy action here. Some people are curious about the camera. A whole range of reactions then one of the best restaurants in the city, famous for this. I call it mullah fizzy taco fry bread filled with local favorites and can only be found here before the doors open. We take a look at the brewing process. sta rting with the green salad ma'am what's the best sign that goes with the bbq to mix it all together so in the lounge and the buck-buck ooh i should say all those mix i'll give the unique case that have?
Here awesome, we have
meatskewers. What kind of
meatis this? The zebu is a type of cattle native to East Africa and brought to Madagascar a few hundred years ago. This tall, fatty bulge on their back makes them stand out in a herd and their meat is coveted. all over the island they are mixing it with some garlic and ginger yes the smell of garlic and ginger back here is so strong here another preparation before dinner time what is it called Paku Paku Paku Paku yes are you ready? yes first she is going to put a lot of oil in her rice flour and then next comes the coconut milk coconut milk she is preparing 8 kilos of flour mmm she pours she needs almost 1 liter of oil mixed with it she could finish them liter of coconut milk after the batter is fully needed is portioned in to these balls and left to rest, oh that's done now, can you really look surprised at all that is good for you too? this beautiful masterpiece yes yes here I can get you a Gatorade yes yes you accept it's ok I'll be back with a Gatorade later while they prepare dinner service On the street we bumped into my man here he has some kind of bread we call it my life as bread so it's mostly rice flour based okay I'll take 100 then she'll take an amazing looking texture in stopping an oil still and That's not sugar that's salt okay let's try mmm oh my little Malagasy savory donut, just super oily, very dense, lotus, beautiful white color, voila, oily on the inside, how many of these would you usually eat?
Sir, very delicious, what would you do? The street food fun continues right behind us basically a fried chicken restaurant so here's our different way of cooking chicken industry. People come here. Chicken soup or just fried chicken. I don't like whole chicken or they use everything I see liver on there and you can see man these are some of the leanest thighs you'll ever see super skinny they're just like the one we can see here this is a deep blue mouth salad . zebu mouth one mA yes it's the zebra's mouth yes oh why does the mouth like lips nothing deep like really the month is worth it sounds refreshing and scary a little girl Joel recommends the chicken noodle soup a few drumsticks and my favorite childhood zebu boca salad ok wait in your mouth can you show me the photo?
Yes, that's his mouth. They put a little nose in there to love it. Everything is like the muscle of the cow. So why don't we try that salad first? r from the cow sorry i said cow if it's not at all counts it's a zebra it's a zebu it's not even a cebu cow just a zebu when you mix a cow into a cebu it's a Z cow or a boom cow which is cuter cowboy oh, there's green peppers, there's onion, how much does it smell like vinegar, actually, this is really good, let's try mmm, it's kind of cool, mm-hmm, I think maybe they'll even put a little lemon in it, nice fresh peppers , good onion flavor. and the cheeky part, the mouth, the muzzle II, the part was a bit gelatinous.
I like chicken feet. Now what kind of chicken is this? stronger but i like the taste how much is each light do you have any idea how you can get about twenty legs for about five bucks thats a good deal they have this great chicken broth and some noodles are just go thats why is there some combo special or do accommodation and there may be people you can have some jerky and then you pick the yellow part mix that with the bra mix mix mix oh and now it's nice and cloudy that was pretty good let's take a big bite, noodles, a bit of broth. broth super simple just salty chicken goodness good old fashioned chicken noodle soup my favorite is probably the boca salad yes it is very refreshing i agree the time has finally come we are going back to zebra restaurant and i am keeping my promise remember?
I, yeah, wait, he's so focused he won't even take his delicious catering. Remember when I said I'd give you a Gatorade and then I did. he said it's his first time eating a refreshing Gatorade Thank you Gatorade for the sponsorship it's time for what I call Malagasy tacos zebu skewers vegetable salad and fried bread and some tomato carrot there are some seeds probably from the cucumber to eat it we have to take salad and zebu tuck it under the braids oh and then you break it yeah cuz i can eat more with that this bread ya oh yeah it's still hot im going to get some zebu take it out thats enough thats not enough look woman im wearing a zipper double and i hate cucumber i find it disgusting it's the only food i really don't like but i'll give it a try cause i think they got some vinegar in here look are you ready let's do it homie one no kidding that It's ridiculous, the salad makes it all come together.
You know, this is what I do. i don't like raw cucumber at all but i like this where it's just a slight hint of cucumber but there's vinegar and salt and salt and all these other things that come in that kind of freshness mixed with the meat makes it this kind of amazing the fried chalupa texture on the outside is as delicious Sonne as a sea cucumber so this is yzi boom hard give it a little twist put some salad on and see Merve Tebow has sheep or lamb tastes more like that meat, so there is something spicy. kind of gay meanness to the meat how long have you been coming here every friday this is a good place man i totally get it if you like this video make sure to subscribe and stay tuned because next time we're heading out of
