Do you know someone that seems to be able to find all the best restaurants in town? For me, it is youtube star, Mikey or Mike Chen. Don’t know him? Then you should definitely read on because you will want to binge on his videos after this.
Mikey Chen has built a career filled with videos on his channel called Strictly Dumpling around his favorite food during his travels. He has traveled to far off destination such as Singapore, Philippines, and India. His passion for food shines in every video as he ‘fanboys’ over the beautiful crafted dishes. The most popular type of food that he features is Chinese. However he has featured anything from Japanese to Las Vegas buffets. He has eaten things that most would possibly shy away from like frog fallopian tubes. (Not a dish I personally I am going to try any time soon.)
However, his superpower is eating spicy food. He also loves using chili oil to bring on the heat, and he rarely claims that any meal is too hot for him. As a Texan, I grew up around spicy food and my tolerance level is mild. I am truly impressed by his talent since I personally can’t do it. Plus, he seems to be able to find these delicious eats tucked away from the tourist that can be enjoyed as they are meant to be.
I love food myself and with asian food being one of my favorites. I greatly enjoy watching his channel and anxiously await his next upload. He is currently based in New York permanently but since he is on the road most of the year just check his Instagram to see what he is currently up to if you can’t wait for his video uploads. So go watch his videos and let’s get hungry!
