I know you’re sick of these $1 menu food shows and need season 3 of that “other show,” but we’re gonna do you one better and do what people say when they’re going to do better and do the same damn thing and call it something else.
This family edition of Huang’s World brings you father-son hang time with Eddie and his dad in Taipei, Taiwan. The Huang men catch up over the most meticulously crafted dumplings in the world, and pay visit to Eddie’s grandpa’s resting place in Yang Ming Shan.
Eddie trips down to the Southern tip of the country to vibe with Taiwan’s burgeoning surf culture. He parties on the beach, almost gets eaten by the ocean, and then kicks back with some kiwi before heading back to Taipei.
Eddie revisits his homeland of Taiwan and gets hopped up on betel nut, gives a survey of his favorite delicacies at Shilin night market, and goes late-night fishing at a shrimping dive.
The girls of SF-based Vietnamese pop-up Rice Paper Scissors show Eddie their go-to local food spots, before grilling up octopus, drinking rice wine, and talking about how food is a gateway drug.
Eddie gets a fresh cut and hangs with local rap group The Jealous Guys, before heading off to Julez’s favorite Filipino joint. Also in this episode, Eddie dives into the art of the Mission burrito.
Eddie’s first stop in the Bay Area is Oakland, CA, where he hangs with a local biker gang to show hipsters how to shoot guns and hunt for rabbit.
