And where are we? So today we're checking out Jalan Alor. Or the Alor Street Night Market. Yep. There is so much street food happening right now and they have like these plastic tables set up on the road. And it is just crazy. It is so busy and it smells amazing. It does. Let's go find some food. Small size. Yeah yeah yeah. Okay. Alright, so we are here at the market and Sam has decided to start with something rather unusual. We are having some fruit. We're not messing around. We're having durian and this is like the king of fruits here in Malaysia and other nearby countries like Singapore. In fact, this fruit is so smelly that you often see it banned in certain parts. Yeah on the subway and in hotels. No durians and stuff like that. No durian allowed. But I love this. I absolutely love it. I'm going to open it up. I don't. Oh my gosh it smells so good. So it is really really pungent. Try and describe it for us. Give us smell-o-vision. Mmmm. Smell-o-vision. It is like. It is really sweet and you're making it sound good. It is sweet. It has like I think someone described it once as like eating fruit or something. Eating something like ice cream or creamy out of a toilet bowl. You know that is how I heard it described before. Its smell is potent. I don't mind the smell personally and it just kind of has it almost has like a pudding like texture in your mouth. It is creamy it doesn't taste like a normal fruit that is juicy. But it looks stringy. I haven't got to that part yet. That is good. Oh yum. I'm loving this. I can't wait for you to try it. Hahaha. Um. About that. So quick question for you. Have you actually tried durian before on its own? Not on its own. I think I had it in dessert form and I did not like it. You've got a nice big chunk of it there. Hahaha. It is smooshy. It is smooshy. So just like take a big bite. Oh, how is that smell? That smells rancid. Haha. Okay, time for a bite. Oh my gosh. It smells like fruit that has gone bad? Like garlic. Oh yeah? Garlic-y fruit. Do we have a drink nearby? Do we have a milkshake stand nearby. We have water in my backpack so. Try it. I did. I licked it. You licked it and? And it smells like garlic. Like fruit and garlic combined in to one. I can't say I'm a fan. So not a fan. Yeah, I don't even dare. I get to eat it all. Sam loves it so here you go. Here you go honey all yours. I'm sharing today. That is all you're getting out of me. There we go. Making out with the durian. Oh yeah. Look at that pit. Some on screen romance. Keep going. Mmmmm. Okay no stop. Okay. Sam finished it all. Yeah, I'm almost done. There is a little bit of flesh left on the other ones but I'm almost done. So a durian is not cheap. It is 20 Ringgit which is four dollars and forty cents US for all of this. But if you do want to get a cheaper fruit jackfruit is about a quarter of that price. So you can pick one up really cheaply. Sometimes you can find a little package for under a dollar. Yeah, jackfruit looks similar from the exterior. I don't know about the taste. It is different though. It has got more of a fibrous taste. It doesn't smell quite as strong. Okay. There you go. The love continues. I love durian. Mmmm. Oh yeah. Feed me durian. Feed me durian. We are on the hunt for food. Let's see what we can find next. I'm kind of craving a smoothie. Some kind of fruit juice because it is really hot. I am seeing a lot of Thai food restaurants. Isn't that a little surprising? Yeah, I'm a little surprised by that but Thai food is good. Yeah, I guess they are neighbors. Also I will never understand why cars insist on driving through pedestrian zones. It just doesn't work. Wow, this is awesome. So these are all of the dim sum here. Just one Ringgit each and I get to choose. He gets to choose. Lucky guy. Does it original pork. And this is yam. Chinese potato. Ah, there we go. Okay, so one of Sam's favorite foods is dim sum and it didn't take us very long to find this. And at 1 Ringgit a piece. One Ringgit each. That is literally less than twenty five cents. So we only got three because we want to sample a little bit of everything. Yeah, we want to eat more street food. So this one is made with pork. Yeah. This is made with yam and that is tofu. Yeah, that is tofu. So I'm going to try the pork one. I think that one is called Shui Mei. Yeah. It is huge. Should I do one bite or half of a bite? A two biter. Okay. A two biter. Mmmm. Oh yeah. Wow. Mmmm. That is really good. Yeah. You taste the pork. It is a little bit juicy inside. Yeah. And it is a little oily on the outside. Lots of flavor. Really quite good and these are big dim sum. Yeah. I can't believe how cheap it is. I know. Like seriously. I mean seriously imagine like getting 10 Ringgit worth. Getting like 10 of these and only paying like just over 2 bucks. That is possible here. Mmm. Okay I'm going for the yam. Yams! Alright. Thank you. What do you think? It also has pork. Okay. Yeah. It is like a yam wrapper I guess. It is like colored. Colored with yam but it is a pork filling inside. That is surprising. Tasty? Yeah, it is good. I love the color. I mean that is why we chose it. Because it was purple. So now you're going to try the which one is that? Yeah, this one is tofu right? Yeah, that is the tofu one. Let's see. Good? It kind of reminds me of the texture of that fishcake in Korea. Okay. The Odeng. Yeah. Odeng. Yeah. Yeah. It kind of has that same texture. Oh, that is cool. Very cool. Also something funny we thought we were getting a can of iced tea but this is even better. Thank you. No thanks. But we got this instead. No wonder it was so cheap. I was like what a can for 3 Ringgit? But that looks awesome. It looks like an iced chai tea. Yeah. Look at all of the ice on top too. Very frothy. Let me swallow my dim sum first. I'm still chewing on this. And then you're going to try it huh? Mmmmhmmm. Look at all of that froth. My goodness. Okay, frothy goodness. Mmmm. What do you think? Sweet? Oh man, that is really nice. Is it? It is so sweet. Hahaha. I know the typical teas here in Malaysia are almost like desserts. Yeah, drink desserts. Oh man. If it were any thicker it would be a milkshake. Seriously. That is good stuff huh? And that was only 3 Ringgits so that is what like less than 75 cents. So yeah cheap. Okay, so you've had durian. You've had dim sum. What else are you craving tonight? Oh well, I'm seeing lots of really good cooked meat here on the streets so I'm thinking maybe that might be next for me. So unlike some of the street markets that we've been visiting recently in places like South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand this isn't really a walk and eat market. Like you can do that there is a few stands where you can grab some food quickly and go. But they mostly have little restaurants outside on the street where you just sit down and you grab a meal. So that is what we're doing right now. We're just going to relax, Sam is going to enjoy a beer and we've ordered a few different satays so we're going to show you that. And look at that your beer is here. Okay, and this is a local beer. Skol. Skol. Cheers! Cheers. Time to try that beer. I am very thirsty. Yeah? Yeah. When you're like dehydrated and you're just walking around and you've been eating a lot of salty foods this is perfect.
