Happy Chinese New Year!新年好 Welcome back to the Spoonhunt Food Show for Foreginers欢迎回来Spoonhunt的美食节目 I'm your host, Adam.

And this week I only have 5 Bingo squares left!我是主持人Adam,这周我只剩5个宾果项目了 I'm going to try to knock all of them out in one week.

我这周要把他们全部干掉 Finish the whole game, and this lovely lady next to me is my new special guest for the week.

旁边这位美女是我们的特别来宾 Turn around and say hi.

转过来和大家打招呼吧 Just kidding, she's not going to be helping host until next week.

哈哈开玩笑的,她要下周才会出现 But if you come back next week, I promise we have a new challenge下周回来会有新的挑战 with new prizes and new foods.

有丰厚的奖品 Stick around and find out what happens next week.

让我们期待下周会有什么吧! See yah! Let's go.

等着瞧吧 What's up?大家好 It's a rainy day here in Shanghai上海今天下雨呢 we're here at some random hour, like 3 o'clock in the afternoon我们随机挑了一个时间下午3点 and we're here to get cōng yóu bǐng one of the final Bingo squares, which is Scallion Pancake.

来这里吃葱油饼 And even though it's raining and it's just a random time, there's still a huge line here.

虽然下着雨然后时间很随机,但是还是排了长队 I'm waiting.

They make it handmade right in front of you, they roll the dough out, they put the scallions in, they pan fry it.

我在等待中,是全手工制作而且就在你面前。将面饼用葱裹满,上平底锅煎炸 It takes a really long time to make, but it's so cheap that you have to get it.

听说做起来很费功夫,好便宜你应该试试 How much for one cōng yóu bǐng (Scallion Pancake)?多少钱一个葱油饼? 2.

5 RMB2.

5元 2.

5 RMB? Ok, I'll have 2 Scallion Pancakes.

我要2个 What is inside this?里面是什么? Huh?恩? This thing.

What's inside of it?里面是什么? 20,000 RMB2万 200,000 RMB, you know?20万知道吗? 200,000 RMB?20万? I asked the Lǎobǎn, the boss, how much it would cost for me to learn the recipe and he told me 200,000 RMB.

我问老板说几块钱一个葱油饼,老板调戏我说20万卖配方给我 Cōng.

Zhū yóu.

This is Yóusū.

葱,猪油,这是油酥 So the ingredients are obviously scallion, and then there's some pork fat主要的原料是葱,猪油 And the oil is made of flour and just yellow oil I guess.

这个应该就是黄色的油我猜 There's no egg inside and it's not.

It's just oil and flour.

里面没有鸡蛋,只有油和面粉 Let's give this famous Chinese snack a try and see what the rage is all about.

我们来试试这个著名的中国特色小吃 *Satisfying crunch*酥脆声 A little bit salty, but it's perfect.

一点点咸味,但是很完美 And it's mostly scallion-taste, which I like.

It's delicious.

The dough is crispy because it's pan fried.

吃起来满满的葱味,好好吃,表皮很脆因为是油煎的 *More crunching*酥脆声 Oh man, it's really good.

哇天呐很不错 It's so delicious.

Thank you!很好吃,谢谢你 I got another one!我又买了一个 More Bingo square, well it's the same amount, but I got another one.

又完成一个宾果,虽然是同一个哈哈 A lot of you Spoonhunters out there are Muslim or have dietary restrictions and you have to eat at Muslim places.

有些Spoonhunt的用户是穆斯林或者有饮食限制 So we're going to show you one of the places you can get a Bingo square that is Muslim.

我们今天要带你们看看哪边可以吃到清真食物 You can see up there on the sign that there is an orange circle这边可以看到有个黄色的标志 and that denotes that it's a Muslim restaurant.

这个说明这是清真餐厅 We can actually go in and get another Bingo square, which is sliced noodles.

我们要进去完成一个宾果,刀削面 And, uh, they're really delicious.

Let's go inside and try them.

我们进去试试 I want the Egg Stir-Fried Sliced Noodles.

我要鸡蛋刀削面 Please sit.

请坐 So he took the huge block of fresh dough and just sliced the noodles right into the boiling water to cook them.

他先揉了一大团面然后用刀削入沸水中 And they cooked, pretty quickly.

速度很快 And then as soon as they pulled them out, they're going to now stir fry them because that's the one I got.

然后把面条捞起来要炒了,因为我点了炒刀削 You can also get them boiled, but I'm getting them stir-fried with some egg.

你也可以吃汤的刀削面 They use a huge wok with fire blasting underneath it大火快炒 to stir-fry it.

They put the noodles in and everything is steaming.

把面条和配料倒入锅中 If you're looking for a place just like this, they usually have the green lettering and the green sign.

其实清真餐厅通常都看起来绿绿的 And here, it's great because all the noodles are completely fresh.

应该很不错因为面条是现做的 They always have dough ready, and then if you get pulled noodles or sliced noodles他们通常都会先揉好面团,然后客人点餐了以后现削 they can do it right in front of you.

在你面前 Here are my steaming sliced noodles or Dāoxiāomiàn.

我的热腾腾的刀削面来了 He put some egg in it, and it has carrots and some other veggies.

他加了鸡蛋,胡萝卜还有一些蔬菜 The noodles are a lot wider, but they are still really thin based on how they slice them面条看起来比较宽,削的很均匀 Let's give them a try now and see how they are.

我要来尝尝看 Oh they're really slippery.

吃起来好滑 I didn't get any on that one.

Hahaha.

我都夹不起来 This is delicious, not spicy at all.

好好吃,一点都不辣 The egg is fried right in there and the noodles are pretty chewy.

鸡蛋炒的很棒面条非常有嚼劲 They're not that slimy even though they are a little bit hard to pick up.

有一点难夹起来 It's really delicious.

I highly recommend you get it很好吃,推荐你们也试试 It's pretty cheap and a really good Bingo square.

很便宜很好吃的宾果项目 We're really close to the end of the Bingo game.

我们差不多要完成所有的宾果项目了 One of the few dishes left is Suān là tāng or Hot and Sour Soup.

还剩酸辣汤 We went on Spoonhunt, and we found this place.

我们上Spoonhunt看看哪里有酸辣汤 Which has great ratings, and it has a private kitchen.

这个餐厅排名比较高 So we're just going to go inside and get that much closer to finishing.

让我们进去看看 What is inside of this?里面有什么 Inside this?什么? Yeah.

对 (Chinese) So there's carrots, wood ear mushrooms, and thinly sliced tofu.

豆腐,黄瓜,香菇,肉丝 And there's something else in there, I didn't really get what he said.

里面应该还有一些其他的配料,但是我听不懂 This is our Suān là tāng.

We got to see him make it, which was really cool.

这是我们的酸辣汤,看了大厨怎么煮的感觉蛮酷 It's really interesting, I've never seen anyone actually make this before, but I got to see the ingredients put in.

好有趣,我从来没看过怎么做酸辣汤 You know, there's tofu, carrots, some chicken, mushrooms里面有豆腐,胡萝卜,鸡肉,木耳 And then he sprinkled some pepper at the bottom and put some vinegar in it.

大厨还在底部倒入了一些胡椒和黑醋 So that's what makes it sour.

And Chinese people love this as an appetizer这是酸的原因,中国人很喜欢吃酸 because apparently vinegar is supposed to whet your appetite and makes you more hungry.

因为醋会让你更开胃 So because this is really sour and has vinegar in it, they'll eat this first and then become more hungry大家通常都会先喝酸辣汤因为让你食欲大增 to eat the rest of the dishes that they have.

然后再享受别的美食 This is a private kitchen, which means that back in the day, in China私厨的意思是古时候 really rich people and famous people could have their own kitchens basically, at a restaurant.

有钱的达官贵人家里都会有厨子 They'd have private rooms and their own service, so all the food quality is really high.

会在家里宴请客人 And now they are just regular restaurants, but they used to be very special and private places不过现在演变成正常的餐厅,但是会隐秘一些 So I'm going to scoop some into my bowl now我现在要舀一勺到我碗里 and try it.

It's pretty thick.

来试试,还蛮浓稠的 The broth is pretty thick.

汤头 They put, as we saw, some potato starch in there to make the soup a little bit thicker than just normal soup.

因为大厨放了水淀粉勾芡 And obviously you can't use chopsticks for this, you just use a spoon.

It's soup, so.

显然你需要一个勺子因为是汤 Here's to the Bingo square.

来完成宾果 Wow.

You can really taste the vinegar in it.

It's really sour.

一喝就知道里面加了醋 It's really easy to slurp because it's so thick.

They put egg in it, potato starch.

很容易吃出声音因为很浓稠 And it's a good appetizer and good Bingo square.

Almost done!很好的开胃菜,又完成一个宾果! Tonight we're getting one of the last Bingo squares, which is Sì jì dòu, or Dry Sauteed Green Beans.

今天我要完成最后几个宾果项目,干扁四季豆 They're typically a Sichuan food, but we're at this Hong Kong style cafe.

其实属于川菜,但是我们现在在一个香港餐厅 It's super popular, we haven't been yet.

And we're just waiting in line to get in.

因为它很普遍很常见 They have an assortment of different foods and we figured we'd try it out and get close to the end of the Bingo game.

这个餐厅有很多种不同风格的食物,我们想说就试试看 Even here they still call the Dry Sauteed Green Beans "Kidney Beans"这个餐厅叫干煸四季豆为肾豆 Which is, I think not right.

我觉得应该是错的 So you can always look on Spoonhunt for the pictures to make sure you are getting the right thing.

所以你可用Spoonhunt看看图片,确定你点的菜是对的 This is always easier.

这样比较容易 You can find Hong Kong style restaurants pretty much anywhere in China.

在中国到处都能找到香港餐厅 They're called chá cān tīng, which basically means tea restaurant.

他们通常叫茶餐厅 They're all styled and modeled kind of a similar way.

They are supposed to be "retro"看起来会有些复古 So you can see, retro cars or pictures on the wall.

你看,复古的车子,墙壁 Over there there's just a whole mural of Bruce Lee.

还有一整面强的李小龙 And, all the tables are squished together.

It's a really cool atmosphere.

It's a little more casual.

还有这些桌椅,看起来很酷 And it's always crowded.

There's always tons of people, as you can see here.

不过通常都人很多,看看周围 Here are the dry sauteed beans.

They look delicious, I've had it a bunch of times before.

这就是干扁四季豆,看起来很赞,我以前吃过很多次 But the way they make it is they first deep fry the beans to get all of the mositure out of it.

首先会油炸四季豆 You know, when you normally eat regular beans that have a lot of water in them你平时吃四季豆里面会有很多水分 they're kind of floppy and chewy.

会比较难嚼 But these are really tight and crisp when you eat them.

但是干煸四季豆很脆很嫩 And then they dry sauteed them.

Brown them a little bit.

然后需要干煸 They really soak them in sauce so that the entire, not just the outside, but the entire bean让酱汁都渗透到四季豆里面 gets all the flavor.

味道都煮进去 So let's have it and get the Bingo square.

我们来吃吧! The good thing about this is that it has a lot of different flavors combined.

我很喜欢这道菜的原因是因为口感很丰富 There's a little bit of spice because it's from Sichuan, obviously.

一点点川菜的辣, And then the sauce is a little bit savory, and the bean itself is sweet.

酱汁一点点咸,四季豆本身又是带有甜味的 So there's kind of three different flavors acting in one.

吃进嘴里层次非常的丰富 It's the perfect texture, temperature, and it's a great Bingo square.

完美的搭配,温度!很棒的宾果! We figured to cap off the entire Bingo game, all 25, on the last square we'd save Hot Pot.

我们还剩最后一个宾果项目火锅 So we're at probably the most famous hot pot chain restaurant in China and other parts of the world:所以我们要去吃很有名的那个连锁火锅餐厅 Hai Di Lao.

海底捞 We walk in and you see all these little cute tables, like我们一走进来就看到这些可爱的小桌子 "Oh look! How are you going to eat hot pot on that?"你们不会在这吃火锅吧? Yeah, these are the waiting tables.

当然了,这只是等位桌 The line is so long every night that you have to sit down, they have games,每天这边都会有很长的队伍,你得坐下来玩玩游戏等位 they will do your nails, they will shine your shoes for free because you have to wait so long to get into this place.

他们会给你免费美甲,擦鞋因为你得排队好久 It's so good, it's so famous that everyone comes every day.

好棒啊难怪这么有名每天那么多人 It's not even a busy day.

We're here the day before Chinese New Year and it's packed!今天甚至不是什么假日,明天就过年了大部分人都回家了 So I'm pretty excited! I've never been here before, but we're going to have to wait a little bit to get inside.

我好兴奋,第一次来这边。我们得在这边等一会 In the cool waiting room, we played some games, we made some paper swans.

在这个很酷的等待区域,我们做了千纸鹤 Now we're finally here.

终于轮到我们了 And the menu is all on this iPad.

They have pictures and everything.

点餐都是用ipad点的,有菜品图片 And you just kind of scroll through, pick what you want.

It's pretty awesome.

This place is high tech.

你可以随意滑动点你想吃的,好酷高科技哈哈 This is the sauce station.

All hot pots kind of need your own sauce.

这里是酱料台,你可以选择自己想要的调料 There's not real "right" way to do it.

You kind of make your own concoction.

我这个不是最好的方法,你可以选你想吃的调料 You can make a bunch of them.

Just try them out if you've never done it before.

如果你之前没吃过,可以少来一点试试 I'm really bad at this, so I'm just going to go for something.

I don't know.

我很烂,我不会调,不知道要选什么 And there you have it.

Adam's really disgusting hot pot sauce.

Adam的恶心的调料调好了 This place has the most amazing service.

And they gave us these aprons so that海底捞真是有很好的服务,还给了我们围裙 you know, if you splash out a little bit you won't get your nice clothes all dirty.

你知道吃火锅可能会溅到衣服上 Hot Pot can be a little bit messy, so this is really helpful.

围裙很有帮助 The peppercorns are the little brown things they put in the spicy broth.

辣锅底那边有放花椒 Never eat those things.

It's a terrible mistake.

I've done it a few times by accident.

别吃那个,我不小心吃到过一次简直是灾难 It was the worst experience ever.

Just avoid them at all costs.

尽量避免吃到它们 The broth is bubbling, we've got all of our ingredients here.

汤底在沸腾,这些是我们的菜 And the only thing left to do is to eat it and get the final Bingo square现在我们只需要吃这些美食然后完成宾果 Probably one of the best ones, and complete the entire game.

After 25 full Chinese foods.

是25个里面最棒的一个宾果 Let's do it!来吧 I think it's ready.

You just can tell it's about to melt right off the stick.

我觉得这块肉应该好了 So let's just dip it in the sauce and get the Bingo square.

Finally!然后蘸一下酱料,完成宾果游戏终于 Cap this whole thing off.

结束 Cheers!干杯 *Coughing*咳嗽 Oh man that's spicy.

哇好辣 You know, everything is how you cook it.

The longer you cook stuff, the softer it will get.

你知道你煮的越久,食物就越入味 There's vegetables, different kinds of meat, seafood, beef, pork, any kind.

蔬菜,肉,海鲜,牛肉猪肉等等 It's all up to you, that's the beauty of hot pot.

But, you can never go wrong.

都是由你决定,这个很棒的火锅。 Thanks for watching!谢谢收看 *Victorious music*胜利音乐.
