We’re Thomas and Sheena, food and travel fiends. We travel full time, hunting for the BEST local food in the world to showcase via our YouTube videos. Food is a window into a country’s culture and one of the most exciting ways to get to know a place.

We’re all about eating what and where the locals eat. You won’t find food that’s been created merely to be social media worthy on here- no rainbow bagels, gold leaf soft serves- just genuine, authentic food that tastes incredible.

From street food to mom and pop restaurants, we want to show you the best and most authentic food we find on our travels.

Bonnie Kruch on January 26, 2020

The crepe type meal with the chutney was my favorite fish of this episode! So colorful and looked like a bunch of textures that much of Indian food doesn't seem to have.They never lack flavour but they are very often pureed .

Sydney Gal on January 30, 2020

People, cows, dogs, cabs, cycles, everything on one street……OMG! Thanks for showing the real thing. Do they have public toilets, washrooms, fountains…drink dispensing machines?

Mohammad Rahman on February 2, 2020

Do y'all have any plans of going to Hyderabad in this trip to India?

Venkatarama Kannan on February 5, 2020

Hi folks you missed the kolkata most famous katti rolls. Google kusum roll, go for double egg-double mutton roll. You will never forget kolkata. And don't miss out on phuchka. Eat well and stay safe.

Sanjay Seth on February 6, 2020

Those are all non Bengali snacks. Would have been nice if you sampled any authentic Bengali snacks. Bengalis are the original and the biggest community in Kolkata.

Indian people looks so much more serious and more cold hearted than nepalese. I have visited both countries 25 years ago but don't remember how indian people were.

Arabinda Dey on July 30, 2021
