pig foot noodles. And of course, pork intestine noodles too. So next up we’re in the
deep alleyways of Guangzhou, and we’re bringing you to try

braised sauces down here. Oh, and this is the
pig foot right in here. And we’re just gonna…
Oh yeah, look at that. It’s all about the gelatin. Look at that. Look at those. And this is the beef brisket. Wow. And then we’ve also got the… Whoa, crazy. As you can see all of these

Then we’ve got the beef brisket. And then what we came here for, the beautiful pig foot noodles. So this one right here
really looks delicious with those juicy intestines,
braised juicy pork intestines. And you can really smell that. It’s just like a rich gravy, right? The whole gravy aroma. – [Nikki] It smells so good. – [Trevor] And Nikki
you’re saying you just love intestines, right? – Yeah I do, I love intestines. – So this is gonna be good for you. And Nels, your pig’s foot. – Pig’s foot. I’m excited for this, I am. – And I’m just going light version, normal beef brisket but
we can share everything. (slurps noodles) (groans in delight) – You know what, I like this a lot better than I was expecting. – Really? – Yeah. It’s (licks lips) just a lot of flavor just
packed in a small bite. That was really good. – This is so soft, it’s not chewy at all. It just like, it’s probably
the softest melt-in-your-mouth intestine that I’ve ever had. – [Trevor] Really? – [Nikki] And the flavor is so rich. It’s not bitter at all
like you’ll get sometimes. – [Nels] You might
wanna it with your hand. – I’m in love with these noodles. How’s that pig’s foot? – That is so good. Like, the fat just coats your tongue, and its so soft, and the
flavor is really good. It’s not strong, it’s like mild strong. It’s kind of a medium flavor. – It’s all about the texture,
the fatty collagenness, right? – It really coats your tongue
though, it really just, like, just slides over your tongue. It’s really good. – Next up we’re bringing Nikki and Nels for an extremely strong and satisfying traditional Chinese medicine drink. Sold by vendor who looks at your tongue and your overall health, Chinese
traditional medicine style, to make you feel better. Okay guys, so next up,
because it’s such a warm day in Guangzhou, we’re going into
a little local neighborhood right down these stairs. There’s a traditional Chinese
medicine bitter drink, liangcha, and it’s really good. And what’s super unique about this one is that they use a custom mixture of different herbs and spices depending on how you’re feeling, and she is gonna to prescribe a drink to us
based on our feelings right now. Here we are guys. This is famous Cantonese
medicinal tea, liangcha, run by Lin laoban. (laughs) So this is Lin laoban. This is Nikki and Nels (greetings in foreign language) from USA. – Oh, hi. They’ve been open 20 years here. – Oh my gosh, wow, that’s incredible. So look at this, guys. This is all traditional
Chinese, Cantonese liangcha. – So these are like different
herbal teas kinda things? – All different, right? And Lin laoban is gonna look at us and decide what’s best for us
based on how we’re feeling. So do you wanna try first? – Sure. – Okay. And after having a quick
talk with Boss Lin, she took a look at our tongues, asked us if we had any issues, prescribed us something perfect to beat the summer heat and
the humidity of Guangzhou. So this is pure medicine here. – Cheers. – Chinese herbal liangcha, yeah. – I have no idea what to
expect from the flavor. (smacks lips) – Oh it’s so bitter, I love it. – It’s bitter right? – I love that. I like it
because its not overpowering. Like, it’s a strong flavor
but it doesn’t, like, knock you off your feet or anything. You just kind of take
a sip and it’s there, but its so soothing. – Soothing, and medicinal, and herbal, and a little bit bitter. And Boss Lin really knows
how to prescribe you what you need based on how you’re feeling. People come here with all
different sorts of problems, or not. Some people just love it
because it feels good. But if you come with a cold,
if you come with anything, she can just mix up the
perfect blend for you and you’ll feel better. – Thank you. – Thank you very much Lin laoban. That was really nice. Very happy. That just feels so good. And next up, we’re going
deep into a local market in Guangzhou and looking for street food. Finding some incredibly
strong Chinese rice liqor, baijiu, and some of the
best fried rice noodles we’ve had so far. And next up guys, we are
going deep into a local market here in Guangzhou. There’s a bunch of little
street foods and snacks to try. And I know that right up ahead there’s a famous Cantonese
fried rice noodle dish the (name in foreign
language), the chao hefun, and it’s just right up here. And there is so much going on here, lots of fruit being sold,
lots of meat hanging up. – Oh my gosh. – Pretty cool. – We’re like in the heart of this. – Yes, we are. – This is amazing. – And we’ve just found our local little… Wow, it’s all rice liqor. These are wines, these are wines. – Oh my gosh. Do people just, like, take a shot right here or they, – Usually you would buy
like a liter or half-liter. So this is baijiu, traditional
Chinese white liqor. (laughs) She’s worried that
we’re gonna die (laughs) She’s worried we’re gonna get drunk. – Can you light this on
fire? I think that’s the… – No, this is definitely
(laughs nervously) – It’s just like evaporating
in your mouth, it’s so strong. – Oh my gosh. Wow. – Oh my goodness. – Do people drink that just straight? – I don’t think I can
drink more than that. – (laughs) it’s strong, right? – That was intense. – We’re gonna keep
exploring this market guys. Deep in the alleyways. And here is the seafood section. Look at this guys. We got abalone, we got crab. Look at these, live dancing shrimp. – Oh my gosh. That is so cool. Yeah, those are very fresh. – Yeah. And we are gonna

stir-fried rice noodle joint. Let’s go try it out. And for our final meal,
we’re bringing Nikki and Nels for some extremely local
style stir-fried rice noodles, sliced by hand with a big blade deep in the alleyways of Guangzhou. And right up here guys,
deep in the alleyway, is a famous local-style fried noodle. So look at this. We’re actually chopping up
homemade rice noodles here. So it’s rice flour, and we’re chopping up these homemade rice noodles. And we’re gonna add them to the wok and have a classic fried he fen noodle. So it’s rice flour and water. And you can see he’s steaming it in this metal steamer over here. And then, as it comes out, it comes out in these flat sheets, and we chop it up and fry it into noodles. – I’ve never had noodles like these, ever. – It’s super cool, yeah. So you can see we’re taking
these rice flour sheets right off of the tray here. And then we’re just chopping them up into thin homemade rice noodles. Boom. – [Nikki] Such a unique experience for us. – [Trevor] Okay, now here we
go guys, the wok is starting. We’re gonna make… Okay, come on in. (air conditioner blowing) Isn’t it nice to watch this, this frying action? – [Nikki] I was saying to him, I can’t believe that even,
like, a little stand like this you can… they don’t
have that in the U.S. Like, this is (trails off) – So you can just see
that pure wok skill there as he’s frying these noodles up. We got the flat rice
noodles, bean sprouts, egg, pork, over high heat. It’s all about the control. And it’s really nice to get in the back to see how he does it. Because you can see with
your eyes the precision. Oh, and there come the
greens, look at that. Isn’t that great? – [Nels] Oh my goodness. – [Nikki] So excited to try that. – [Trevor] Oh yeah. (food frying loudly) – [Nels] Yeah, you can
tell he’s really skilled with all of that. – [Trevor] Yeah, he’s a master
of the rice noodle (laughs) (food frying loudly) – [Nikki] So it’s got carrot and then– – [Trevor] Yeah, so he’s
got carrot and greens and little bit of pork. (food frying loudly) (air conditioner blowing loudly) – [Trevor] Wow, bravo. There it is. Okay, here we go guys. We got the street chao hefun, deep in the local alleyways of Guangzhou. We’re got chao ne fen here,
which is thin rice noodle. And then we’ve got chao hefun,
which is the fatter version. And there it is guys, that
is the fat rice noodle, chao hefun. So you can see they actually
put a bit of gai lan greens, Chinese vegetables in there. Oh wow, and this is fried over high heat with a bit of beef. Oh wow, that looks awesome. And then here, what do you think of that? – [Nels] Oh, this looks incredible. I’m excited for this for sure. – [Nikki] And this one’s pork, right? – [Trevor] Yeah, this is pork. So you can see it’s got a bit of carrot, and pork, greens, chives, oh yeah. (laughs) Let’s try it out guys. (air conditioner blowing) (groans of delight) – That is so good. – Yeah, that’s fantastic. – The beef on that is so flavorful. The flavor coated the noodles. – That is delicious, isn’t it? Oh my goodness. – I love that. – And I can’t believe we just get that in the middle of the market. – Right deep in the market, right? You can hear the wok going in the back. That is the soul of Guangzhou right there. And just look at this market we’re in. Deep in the local alleyways. You can only get this style, this flavor, in these deep markets. Are you having fun? – I am. This is the coolest experience. Like this is so unique and I’m in heaven and I just don’t have words
for how wonderful this is. Like, everything about this is amazing. – [Trevor] How about you, Nels? – This is kind of the
culture shock element of the whole thing. I’m a little overwhelmed,
and it’s sort of like, buckle your seatbelt,
we’re going on a ride. And now when the booster pads are on, we’re just gonna hit everything we can. – It’s okay, I’m here
