🥒 ABOUT BEFRS:
Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer.

If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I’m a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.

  1. Growing up n America (The country of greed & self centeredness), traveling & experiencing other cultures makes u appreciate the little things & the importance of it.. it's so refreshing & humbling @ the same time.. It's funny, ppl come to the U.S. for freedom, but many of us born natives of the U.S. want to leave just 2 get a peace of mind, & embrace the things GOD has blessed us with

  2. Every cringe title be like:

    "I ATE 999999999 NUTELLA!!!!!! (GONE WRONG) (I OLMOST DIED!!!!) (NO CLICKBAIT!!) (TOTALLY REAL!!!!)"

    "I ONLY ATE PUMPKIN FOR A DAY!! (NO CLICKBAIT) (OMG ITS REAL 100% NEVER LIE PLEASE CLIK)"

  3. That’s not true about Raw Okra being inedible —my First time okra eaten raw was at a church Filipino dinner __ very thinly sliced with a dash of 🫒 oil garlic salt and delicious 😋

  4. Serious dude, go to Puebla a 'chili poblano' isn't that what you are eating. What they served you is garbage comnpared to here. Saying this as a Dutchmen in Puebla!!! It is authentic to Puebla, I can show you arround, just camera shy haha!!!

  5. I live in Sicily, and we have a lot of this cactus, people eat only its fruit, I didn't know plant is possible to eat. Thank you, now I know what to eat if apocalypse will start😁

  6. Just started watching and you didn't eat just cactus if you had it with other things
    Your titles aren't usually misleading but I doubt you'll even read the comment
    Thanks to your videos I've gotten a glimpse of other countries and their culture and food
    Thanks for sharing the experiences with others

  7. Lol when I clicked on the link, an Apple Watch commercial was the opening ad “911 what’s your emergency?” And I thought it was your call to 911 🤣😂😆🤓🤣
