  • - What's up cuties?

  • Today we are at Tonghua Night Market, one of my favorite

  • night markets here in Taipei, Taiwan.

  • Now I'm gonna show you three Taiwanese noodle soups

  • you must try, a.k.a. I'm sending you nudes.

  • N-o-o-d, noods, because then that'd be awkward,

  • if it was the other one.

  • Okay, I'm gonna start the video now.

  • (big band music)

  • We are here at our first stop to try some delicious

  • danzai noodles.

  • Check this out.

  • Ahhhh

  • I don't know if you can hear in the background,

  • but there's this romantic, sexual jazz music playing,

  • and I think it's very fitting for this noodle right here.

  • I think it's time for some noodle bowl porn.

  • (rhythmic music)

  • Oooh yeah

  • - Ooh snaps, mm, noodle bowl.

  • So if you actually search up danzai,

  • or danzai noodles online, you're gonna see the photo

  • very similar to this, but it has a piece of shrimp on top.

  • So we're missing the shrimp, but we basically got

  • everything else.

  • We have some minced pork, we have bean sprouts,

  • cilantro, black vinegar, garlic, soy sauce, and egg.

  • These are the usual ingredients you need to make

  • a delicious danzai noodles.

  • Yes, queen.

  • Noodles actually dates back to the Qing dynasty

  • 130 years ago.

  • Yes, thank you Google search for that information.

  • We are going to try this delicious bowl of noodles.

  • Oh my gosh, I am salivating already.

  • Here we go.

  • Mmmm, oh, oh my goodness.

  • That was so delicious, that was actually really good.

  • Oh yeah, okay, the noodle is chewy.

  • It's super soft.

  • It's also flavorful.

  • It really soaked in that soup, and this broth, ohh,

  • it's so good.

  • It's got that light, savory meat sauce flavor in it,

  • and it's like salty, but not too much, it's perfect.

  • This is pretty dang good.

  • I'm gonna take a bite with the bean sprouts.

  • I love bean sprouts.

  • Mmmm, mmmmmm.

  • (big band music)

  • Ohh, woo.

  • Okay, I'm gonna give this bowl of noodle a

  • four out of five noms.

  • It's pretty darn good.

  • It tastes very traditional and brings me back

  • to my childhood.

  • I'm loving it.

  • Okay, now it's time to try the second noodle soup.

  • Let's go.

  • (big band music)

  • Hello you guys, we are now trying our second

  • Taiwanese noodle soup over here.

  • And it's actually one of my favorites as well.

  • All my food is my favorite.

  • Mm, yeah.

  • This noodle soup here is called orh ah mee sua.

  • Now what it's got in here is some wheat noodles right here.

  • Don't confuse it with rice vermicelli,

  • because they're very different.

  • Rice vermicelli is made with brown rice.

  • This right here is wheat.

  • It is much darker.

  • In here is also cilantro.

  • I love cilantro.

  • And we got some oyster and some large intestine

  • mixed in as well.

  • The large intestine is (speaks in Chinese).

  • To be honest, cooked oyster, I don't know how I feel

  • about that, the texture is kind of weird to me.

  • But I do love the intestine in the soup right here.

  • It's really chewy and just so good.

  • The thing about this noodle soup that I particularly like

  • is how the soup is really thick.

  • It's because they added some tapioca powder in there

  • to make that sticky, gooey soup right here

  • that you see.

  • (rhythmic music)

  • Ooh yeah

  • - Shall we take a bite?

  • Yes, okay, let's go.

  • I want to get a big bite with noodles and soup

  • and intestines in there.

  • Mmm, here we go.

  • Mmmm.

  • Oh, okay, okay, have to be honest.

  • I wasn't sure how good this particular shop was because

  • I haven't tried it, but I've tried the other two.

  • But dang this is a good bowl of oyster vermicelli.

  • It really is delicious.

  • I think the broth here is especially light.

  • A lot of times, these vermicelli noodles, the broth

  • is all really dark brown, they probably put a lot of

  • sauce in here, but this is just perfect.

  • It's quite wonderful.

  • It just looks like chunks of yummyness.

  • We're gonna eat an oyster.

  • I don't know how I feel about this oyster,

  • but I'm gonna put it in my mouth.

  • Here we go.

  • Mmm, oh, surprisingly really, really good.

  • The oyster was quite pleasant.

  • It kind of just melts in your mouth.

  • Just a little bit of seafood taste.

  • The soup is yummy, the noodles are delicious.

  • I'm such a noodle person.

  • Okay, I'm gonna take another bite.

  • Here we go.

  • Mmmm, that's yummy.

  • If you're trying to get to this particular noodle shop,

  • you have to walk all the way down to this intersection,

  • and then make a right.

  • Make a right.

  • I just, I don't know my directions.

  • Make a right and then walk about 50 kilometers,

  • and you're gonna reach a shop that sells stinky tofu

  • and these oyster vermicelli.

  • Oh boy, it really is so yummy.

  • I'm a fan.

  • I'm gonna give this noodle a four out of five nom as well.

  • And that was the second bowl of noodle soup you must try

  • here in Taiwan.

  • Are your stomachs ready for the third one?

  • Let's go.

  • (big band music)

  • Oh yeah, noodle teleportation,

  • oh yeah, oh yeah.

  • We are at our final stop trying our third and last

  • noodle soup.

  • This is one of my favorites.

  • It is not just only one of my favorite noodle soup,

  • this particular restaurant has some of the best

  • (speaks in Chinese) I've ever tasted.

  • Seriously, just take a look at this,

  • can we get a little close up?

  • Can we get some noodle bowl porn?

  • (rhythmic music)

  • Ooh yeah

  • - If you try to search for this online,

  • there's not really an English name.

  • I found a variation.

  • I'm gonna call this the pork rib noodle soup.

  • This rib right here though, it is actually pre-fried,

  • so what you see around it is a beautiful glistening batter.

  • Oh yes.

  • This particular shop, why I love it so much,

  • is that this spare rib right here,

  • when you take a bite, it literally just melts in your mouth.

  • And the spare rib is so soft,

  • you just chew right through it.

  • It's like magic.

  • Let me show you what I mean.

  • Mmm, mmmm.

  • Oh meat is seasoned, the pepper spicy.

  • It's just so nice, so flavorful.

  • Did you see how it just fell off?

  • Look at this again.

  • Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm.

  • That chew, that bite right there,

  • I literally just, I bit through the bone,

  • I didn't even need to chew it.

  • Let me tell you something.

  • When you come to this night market,

  • you're gonna see a shop that sells (speaks in Chinese).

  • Don't get it from there.

  • It's not as good.

  • This spot, this spot, is the spot, okay?

  • Let's try our favorite part, the noodles.

  • Ooh, look at this, look at this noodle skills.

  • The spoon, noodles, right there, you do a little spin.

  • Oh, just kidding, never mind, don't follow,

  • don't do this at home, never mind, oh shit.

  • This looks so good.

  • Mmm, ohh, this is literally perfection.

  • It's my favorite noodle soup out of the three that we tried.

  • This soup here is a beautiful pork broth.

  • It is so good.

  • It's the kind of soup where you take one spoonful,

  • and you're like I've got to drink the whole thing.

  • I always finish the broth.

  • Mmm, just one more delicious bite with the noodles,

  • with the soup, ohh, oh my gosh, here we go.

  • Mmmm.

  • You guys, this noodle soup is a five out of five noms.

  • You heard it here first.

  • You guys have to check out this restaurant right here.

  • You won't be disappointed, I promise.

  • (big band music)

  • Mmm, oh yeah.

  • Alright cuties, so that was three Taiwanese noodle soups

  • you have to try if you are here in Taiwan.

  • Now I want to know which one of the three was your favorite.

  • Comment below, and I'll comment something back.

  • I'll see you guys later.

  • Bye.

  • I'm gonna go ahead and take another bite because

  • darn that was yummy.

  • Oh fuck, oh fuck it's so hot.

  • Oh fuck.

  • I'm gonna take another (laughs).

  • And I'm gonna show you three Taiwanese noodle soups

  • you must try.

  • I gotta move out for this cart right here.

  • Mmm, that Chinese pop song in the background though.

  • Am I gonna get a copyright?

  • (big band music)
