  • (upbeat music)

  • - Hey guys, it's Ruchi and Avi

  • and today is our last day inrida.

  • We've spent about three months here.

  • - Yeah, that's a long time for us.

  • - So we decided to make this video

  • to show you some of our favorite spots in the city

  • and to show you some of the things

  • which we haven't shown before, and at the end of the video,

  • we have a little segment called five things

  • where we are going to go over the hits and misses ofrida.

  • And we're also gonna tell you where we are headed next!

  • So stay tuned for that!

  • All right, let's go!

  • - Okay.

  • - We are at our first stop.

  • We're waiting to get a place inside.

  • This place is called Chilakiller's.

  • And they make only one dish and they make it really well.

  • It's called chilaquiles and it's like one

  • of our favorite Mexican foods.

  • Chilaquiles is basically a big bowl

  • of tortilla chips with different types

  • of salsas and you can put anything you want on it actually.

  • Pork belly, chicken, fried eggs, avocado, anything goes.

  • The best part about chilaquiles is that there's no rules.

  • You can put anything you want and you can eat it

  • at any time of the day.

  • Okay, let's go!

  • Ready?

  • (upbeat music)

  • Mine has a mix of blue,

  • blue chips and

  • yellow chips and some onions,

  • avocado and

  • yup that's it, lots of cheese.

  • - [Avi] Show the sauce in the video.

  • - Yeah, and this is like,

  • this is their special house sauce

  • and then there's gonna be like spicy sauce inside as well.

  • And then Avi's has a bunch of scrambled egg,

  • which I'm going to steal.

  • I will miss this place, but we can find chilaquiles

  • in a lot of other places in Mexico

  • which we'll be going to soon.

  • Butrida is the place that introduced us

  • to this dish, so I guess it's always going

  • to be special here.

  • Okay, now it's time to find a coffee shop to work from.

  • (upbeat music)

  • We just got done with a few hours

  • of work in the cafe because it's really too hot

  • to roam around in the daytime.

  • So we're waiting for it to cool down a bit

  • before we decided to walk down this road.

  • rida is hitting like 40 degrees.

  • Kind of a good thing that we're leaving.

  • I'm a little glad about that.

  • We're going to cooler temperatures.

  • This road is called Paseo Montejo.

  • It's one of the iconic roads ofrida.

  • It's really beautiful.

  • It's lined on either side with colonial houses

  • and cute little restaurants and this is like one

  • of the first places we checked out inrida.

  • So it's really nice to walk here in the evenings.

  • This monument right here is called the Monumento a la Patria

  • which means the monument of the fatherland, or homeland.

  • And it's really beautiful.

  • It's got these really nice carvings

  • of Mexican history on this entire surface.

  • Okay, let's check it out!

  • (upbeat music)

  • Sorida has been really good for us, right?

  • Like when we came here, we only came

  • like we only planned to come for two weeks just

  • to say hello to our friend Nathan from Foodie Flashpacker

  • and we ended up staying for

  • - Three months - Three months!

  • Like before coming here we'd been traveling non-stop

  • for like almost five, six months.

  • - Yeah. - Yeah we went to Hokkaido

  • in Japan and then a week in Taiwan

  • and then Hong Kong and then back to India

  • and then in the US.

  • And in US we were like all over, like Miami.

  • And then we flew here and then just spending three months

  • here it really helped us like get back

  • on track with healthy eating and just going to the gym

  • and eating properly and getting like some progress done

  • with work so that felt really good, right?

  • - Yeah, basically it helped us to form better being.

  • Like now we go to the gym.

  • We have work timings.

  • We have been able to upload one video a week.

  • - Yeah and that's like a huge personal achievement

  • for us, uploading one video a week.

  • So I consider that like a major goal off my check list.

  • So I'm very excited about all that.

  • So maybe we can do two videos a week.

  • - If you haven't subscribed already, please subscribe.

  • Also we got to the travel the Yucatan a bit.

  • We saw one of the wonders of the world, Chichen Itza.

  • We saw pink flamingos in Celestún.

  • - And the pink lakes! - And the pink lakes.

  • What more?

  • - And then we ate a lot of the Yucatecan food.

  • - We ate a lot of Yucatecan food,

  • which is way different from the Mexican food we know.

  • You get dishes like salbutes, panuchos, conchinita pibil!

  • Not a food heaven for vegetarians.

  • They eat a lot of meat, especially pork.

  • I couldn't find that much, but I started to eat chicken so.

  • That was - And all the chilis!

  • - And the habanero chili.

  • This region is where the habenero chili comes from.

  • So she was happy! - Yes I love this!

  • All the spicy salsas, and the chocolate!

  • - Oh yeah. - Oh my god!

  • The Mayan chocolate is to die for.

  • - Yeah, so I had so many hot chocolates here.

  • I don't think I've had this many chocolates anywhere.

  • - Yes.

  • - This road closes on Sunday mornings

  • from nine to 12 for cyclists and runners.

  • And at the end of the road you can hire bicycles

  • of all types.

  • If you're alone you can ride a normal one.

  • If you're a couple, then you can do a tandem one.

  • If you're a large group, like eight people can go

  • in one, those huge cycles where four of you like

  • basically pedal so.

  • - [Ruchi] And there's like even bikes with baby seats.

  • - Yeah, there's bikes with baby seats.

  • We did it with our friends here,

  • who was a couple and have a small kid.

  • The kids leapt off, but we went around the road.

  • It was so much fun!

  • - This is a marquesita.

  • It's our favorite park snack.

  • It's basically crispy crepe

  • with banana and chocolate inside.

  • Welcome to our new segment,

  • which is very creatively named the five things!

  • - Five things!

  • - So in this segment, we're going

  • to go over some of the hits and misses

  • ofrida really quickly.

  • You ready? Let's go. - Yeah.

  • - Favorite food?

  • - My favorite food would be the tortas from Wayan E.

  • They were like, oh my god, the spongy, sweet bread

  • with like the fillings inside from chicken fajitas.

  • - What's your favorite filling?

  • - Pork belly, castacán, pork belly and cheese

  • and all that spicy salsa!

  • Oh my god, I'm going to miss Wayan E so much!

  • - Mine is chilaquiles. - Of course!

  • Because that's what we discovered

  • for the first time here inrida.

  • It's an amazing piece.

  • It's an amazing breakfast.

  • It's so filling but I can eat it at any point of time.

  • - It's basically an excuse to eat nachos for breakfast.

  • - Yeah, that's true.

  • - And no one's complaining so that's great.

  • Okay, what's next?

  • - Favorite place you saw in Yucatan?

  • - Hmm, for me it will have to be the pink lakes

  • because like I haven't seen anything like that before.

  • It's amazing to just drive in the wilderness

  • and then there's like so, it looks so kind of deserted

  • and when you reach the pink lakes, it's so weird.

  • There are these sections of pink lakes cordoned off

  • because they harvest salt over there.

  • - Yeah we wish we could go inside.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Would you wish to go in them?

  • - I would have loved to like maybe just see

  • what it's like to actually be in such salty water

  • but you're not allowed to go into the water anymore because

  • it's very crowded

  • and a lot of tourists want to just go mess up

  • - I wish we could have flown our drone there

  • but we had everything set up,

  • but we didn't put the SD card in.

  • - Yeah we forgot 'em there so like

  • - Yeah, that happened.

  • - And what's your favorite place?

  • - My favorite thing,

  • my favorite place is Suytun, the cenote.

  • Cenotes are extremely unique to Yucatan.

  • So I was always looking forward to going to one of them,

  • but Suytun just took my breath away.

  • It was so nice! - It was so unique

  • and even though it's like one of the most hyped-up places

  • to go to, actually there was no one there.

  • There was like maybe five people besides us.

  • And we all kind of had it to ourselves.

  • - It was like an ashram.

  • It was so silent - And once you go under,

  • like it's a whole other world.

  • It's insane. - Yeah even if we don't know

  • how to swim, we thought like cenotes would not be fun

  • because we don't know how to swim,

  • but it was so much fun going there.

  • The thing you love the most.

  • - The thing I love the most?

  • - Mine is orange juice

  • or here they call it jugos de naranja.

  • Yucatan is known for oranges.

  • So you get freshly-squeezed orange juice,

  • which is incredible and it's so sweet.

  • Naranja dulce. - Anything to do

  • with like oranges is amazing like they have a salt orange

  • and like a sweet orange.

  • - Yeah naranja dulce, naranja agria.

  • - Agria, yeah.

  • Both are amazing actually.

  • Almost like a luxury being spoiled

  • by freshly-squeezed orange juice

  • for breakfast anyplace we went to.

  • Okay my favorite thing would be the colorful streets

  • and like just the colonial architecture.

  • It's really nice to see so many colorful streets

  • in the historic center of town so.

  • - This is our first colonial city.

  • We have never seen, we have never been to Europe

  • and we have never seen

  • - A lot of people compare like the center

  • of town to European cities

  • because it has the same cobblestone alleys

  • and like the buildings have beautiful arches

  • and the walkways are similar.

  • So it's really nice to see.

  • All right, controversial stuff!

  • The thing you hated the most! (laughs)

  • So for me, I think

  • what I hated the most would be the weather!

  • Like when we landed in around January,

  • the weather was nice and then suddenly in Feb it just got

  • so hot and gross and I kinda hate summer.

  • - I'm very surprised.

  • You are from Delhi!

  • - Yeah. - It's the same weather!

  • - Yeah, I like shrink in the summers

  • and I only like I do things, activities in the winter.

  • It's like the opposite of hibernation.

  • - My most hated thing was the toilet paper. (Ruchi laughs)

  • - Yeah, I hated that too! - There's no bum guns.
