Taiwanese Street Food in Kaohsiung – HAKKA NOODLE HEAVEN in Qishan + RURAL Street Food in Taiwan!!!

Catch and Cook GIANT Lobster in Canada –

Our first time visiting Qishan (Kaohsiung) was a SUCCESS! There is so much good food and street food here, and also HAKKA cuisine which is very traditional in this region. We drive outside of Kaohsiung city using a scooter and drive about 1 hour to Qishan, a small Taiwanese town full of delicious food and things to do. We visit the Qishan Confucius Temple of Taiwan and eat local Indigenous Hakka cuisine in nearby village Meinong! Meinong District is known for its Hakka community and culture, and have their own dishes!

    I was SO enjoying your Canada videos, when this popped up, I was like, "Whaaaa…??" But it was cool to see a part of Taiwan that wasn't all crowded and hustle-bustle. The drone footage, and the editing, made this a very pretty video to watch. And I'm SO glad I ate before watching. Those Hakka noodles looked good!

  3. Weitsung Hsu

    Great video.I like the video you taste the local street foods in Taiwan. You intriduce many places and foods in detail. Welcome to Taiwan again.

  4. Chenithung Yanthan

    Your videos qualities are amazing bro… Got a long way to go.. One suggestion is you dont have to let your gf to introduce again and again after you did on the same menu.. Much support and love

    i thought hakkas aren't indigenous to taiwan and are migrants from the mainland because they are han. i figured that the aboriginal title is only designated for native taiwanese like the amis, paiwan and other officially recognized groups.

  6. Francis Inghels

    hi guys…love you honest way to present food/places. Great filming/presentation…no boring time and always learning. Unique experience with you both..

  7. Ben Burns

    That last wide noodle dish looked really interesting. Do you get special maps to help in navigate the roads? Must be very confusing with the language. Also do you have to have an International drivers license to be able to rent the scooter?

  8. 回收聚集方式

    Taiwan's ice and drinks can be ordered
    You can ask for half sugar or more fruit
    Taiwan pastries usually be add your own jam and cream
    I really like fried beef rice strips.Usually sold in hot fry restaurants
    Hakka is famous for thrift <客家菜包
    That is a kind of snack made with dried vegetables.also very healthy and delicious

    Loving your Taiwan videos. Do you and Sabrina have any plans on traveling to Africa and trying food there? When going to Europe, stop by Portugal and have some Francesihina.

    Thanks for sharing the Kaohsiung food video. For me the Hakka noodles looks yummy. Would like to give it a try when I go to Kaohsiung and Taipei later this year. Btw do we need to have international driving licence to rent a scooter there? Would like to rent a scooter and explore the place.Thank you and can’t wait to watch your next vlog. Take care! Cheers!

    Excellent video. That crispy pork looked amazing. Don't ever forget to reply to some of the comments as the bigger YouTubers do. I know you try to reply to as many as possible but some don't reply to any or even acknowledge posts. Well done you. Love your makeup by the way Sabrina.

  12. Hang Tuah

    Luke and Sabrina, perhaps you should have a warning preface to ensure anyone viewing this video should have their meals first as those noodles are mouth watering and when watching it in the middle of the night whilst waiting for the field hockey streaming from Amsterdam, it is very cruel, with my stomach rumbling. LOL

    My mother is a Hakka, for I know all Hakka people live in Meinong district which is next to Chishan, there are Minan people live in Chishan, each of them speak their own language that is very different.

    Going to be a bit long winded. Sorry!
    I am virtually housebound due to illness, so you Tube is my main form of entertainment.
    I eagerly await your videos because of the pleasure I get from them.
    They are extremely well made with variety of composition that stops them, in my opinion, several cuts above the normal “look at me stuff my face with animal parts” videos! Even the ones with many more subscribers.
    You do not focus too much on stuff that grosses me out, like a lot of vloggers do. I fast forward those.
    You have a great balance of talk, scenery, explanations of the cooking process, etc, etc. . You also seem to be very aware of background noise and how it can ruin a video for many viewers.
    Where are you based?
    Loved that recent, to me at least, video you did from Canada. Lobsters had me drooling.
    Please keep on doing what you are doing and the way you do it.
    Thank you very much.
    Ps you both have big brass ones for driving a scooter there! An Abrams tank would be my preferred mode of travel!!
