  • - Hey everyone I hope your having an amazing day.

  • It's Mark Wiens, I'm in Chiang Mai, Thailand

  • and Chiang Mai is maybe the capital

  • of night markets in the entire world.

  • And so it is a Sunday night.

  • I am at (foreign language).

  • This is one of the biggest and

  • the busiest night markets in Chiang Mai.

  • It runs the entire length of Ratchadamnoen Road.

  • Which is right in the center,

  • the heart of of Chiang Mai.

  • So this evening we're gonna go on a food tour

  • of the night market in Chiang Mai.

  • We're just gonna see what we find,

  • we're gonna eat some delicious food and

  • I'm gonna share it all

  • with you in this video right now.

  • (upbeat music)

  • This particular market is open every Sunday.

  • And it starts at 5:00 p.m..

  • Right now it's exactly 5:00 p.m. so they're just open up.

  • Most of the vendors are here,

  • but still sorta organizing,

  • setting things up.

  • There's a mix of almost everything at this market.

  • From souvenirs and clothes,

  • trinkets and lanterns and lights.

  • But mainly I'm here to just sample the food

  • and we're gonna see what we can find.

  • And try to eat some of the...

  • Mix of things.

  • And I'm still waiting for my friends

  • Tom and Joel who are gonna come also hang out tonight.

  • But we got here a little bit before they did.

  • I wanted to get here right as they opened,

  • the market opens, so I could get all the shots.

  • But they should be joining me soon.

  • (foreign chatter)

  • Anytime I see a cart that's loaded with this much meat,

  • in this particular instance, sausage,

  • there's no way you can walk past it

  • without ordering a few skewers,

  • and it is just smoking away.

  • You can see her,

  • the fan is blowing, the sausage under there.

  • The fat is just burning down,

  • it's just smoking away it smells so good.

  • Most of what's hanging on the bar is

  • sai krok Isan, which is a...

  • It's an Isan style sausage.

  • But then she also has some of the northern sausage.

  • Which is called sai ua.

  • In two different shapes and so I got one of the,

  • one skewer of the Isan sausage as well as

  • the northern Thai sausage we'll just taste them both

  • to taste the difference.

  • Okay this is the sai krok Isan.

  • (foreign chatter)

  • Oh wow!

  • Okay, that is a big bite.

  • It's so good though, just bursting with fatty juices.

  • And for sai krok Isan you have to chase it

  • with a chili because that's just pure meat.

  • As opposed to what we'll see in the next bite

  • of the sai ua, so I got a chili.

  • Oh yeah.

  • That completes the experience, it's so good.

  • It's so juicy.

  • Wow that's tasty.

  • And then as opposed to the sai krok Isan,

  • which is, there's no spices within the sausage itself

  • but you eat spices, you chase with spices, like the chili.

  • This one is the sai ua which is filled with spices already

  • within the ground meat mixture.

  • So there's lemon grass in here, there should be chilies.

  • These are a little--

  • Mmm.

  • Oh yeah.

  • Hohoho.

  • Sai ua is so good.

  • You can taste the lemon grass.

  • This one is quite a fatty mix.

  • But it is juicy.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Wow.

  • There's no better way I could think of,

  • to start this night market food tour,

  • in Chiang Mai.

  • Mmm.

  • (foreign chatter)

  • Now that market is still pretty quiet.

  • Well, very quiet compared to what it's gonna be.

  • Right now you still have lots of space to move around.

  • The vendors are still setting up,

  • but I can guarantee in a couple of hours,

  • especially when the sun is fully down,

  • the market will be packed.

  • So it is good to come early.

  • If you are weary of just single file crowds.

  • (upbeat music)

  • We ended up walking all the way across

  • to the other side of the market.

  • Actually we started on the end of the market,

  • but this is actually the front.

  • At (foreign language).

  • So this is the front gate here.

  • So this is where you normally come into the market.

  • And it's just now almost 6 p.m. and

  • it's just starting to get really busy.

  • (upbeat music)

  • (foreign language)

  • The hard thing about this market

  • is it's so huge and so sprawling and

  • it goes down so many little side alleys

  • and into little temple courtyards.

  • And so, within lots of little temple courtyards,

  • there are little food courts.

  • Just an everlasting supply of Thai snacks.

  • And so we saw the giant pan of bubbling, buoyant,

  • pork balls, in Thai they're called look chin mu.

  • And she informed us that they are 100% pork.

  • So it's just pork that's been...

  • Very ground, very smoothly and made into little balls.

  • They boil.

  • You can just see them all just like buoyantly

  • floating around in the wok, in the water.

  • Then she scoops them out, she serves them to you

  • fresh over some lettuce.

  • She puts on a little bit of toasted garlic

  • and some of the sauce,

  • which I think should be a little bit sweet.

  • That looks really good, we gotta try a hot fresh pork ball.

  • Mmm.

  • Mm.

  • It's so soft and tender.

  • Yet, not mushy.

  • Very kinda neutral tasting and just...

  • I got a piece of Chinese celery on that bite.

  • And also the sauce, which is a little bit...

  • Sour,

  • a tinge sweet,

  • and a tinge spicy.

  • Mm, but you can taste the quality, the freshness of them.

  • You can tell that's just pure pork, that's luscious.

  • It's very mild in flavor but you can taste

  • just a hint of black pepper.

  • Maybe even white pepper.

  • (drumming)

  • (foreign music)

  • Oh there they are.

  • (foreign language)

  • What's up Tom?

  • - What's up?

  • - [Mark] What's up, JJ?

  • - That's so good.

  • You know what?

  • Have a try.

  • - Warm and sour.

  • - The last one. - Warm and sour?

  • - Sour and spicy.

  • (foreign language)

  • - [Mark] Already had some look chin and some sai krok.

  • - Nice. - Whoa.

  • - [Mark] Okay I'll taste it.

  • Thank you.

  • I would love some sai ua.

  • - It's like a Vietnamese sausage.

  • - They really take care a lot about people around them.

  • - Oh that's nice.

  • - I'm just joking. - You think so?

  • Okay.

  • - That is a ramble.

  • - Isn't it kinda like that German um--

  • - Yeah it's like Leberkäse.
