– One, two, three. – Ah, Singapore! Yeah? That’s who you wanted? – (laughs) No! (upbeat hip-hop music) – Singapore! Today, The Try Guys are going on a Singaporean Food Adventure. – We’re going to eat as much
food as humanly possible. – Seven days and a hundred
billion things to eat. – Singapore is a dope country. It is beautiful, it is incredibly diverse, so many different predominant langauges, so many different influxions
of food and recipes, and it’s just, like,
the cleanest city ever. – [Zach] Singapore has
immigrants from all over Asia who come here, who’ve made it their home, and they brought with them incredible, delicious, authentic meals. – A lot of these masters, they
only cook one serving per Wok so all of their attention is going towards one of your servings. – [Zach] The first day we teamed up with a local tour guide to take us around, tell us a little bit about the history, and feed us a lot of food. – Okay, I’m gonna give you all
a sample of this mangosteen, the people from the States
are actually promoting it as anti-cancerous kind of stuff. – Mmm. – [Lionel] Ah, it’s very nice. – That’s delicious. – I like looking in your
eyes while I wash your hands. – Okay, that’s enough.
That’s enough. That’s enough. (laughs) – [Keith] Hawker Centers
are all over this place, and they’re basically giant food courts of different food stalls. – [Ned] You can get Michelin star meals for under five dollars here. What? – It is basically just sugar and water, and it is the sweetest
thing you’ve ever had, and it is delicious. – [Eugene] The hainanese chicken and rice. This is a must-have in Singapore, one of their most iconic dishes. – [Keith] Hell yeah, Ned. – The skin gets this
nice layer of fattiness and the rice is so, like,
light, kind of buttery. – The hainanese chicken rice is approved by this chicken lord. – [Zach] Every mixed stir-fried dish we have here is amazing. – [Keith] So I had congee
for the first time, which is kind of like
grits, but very savory, and it was filled with, like,
surprising pieces of chicken. – Baby wants more! – [Ned] Now you slap the
water bottle onto the floor. – Yeah, look everyone in the
eye and throw it on the ground. (laughs) – [Zach] Singapore has
got some crazy desserts. – [Keith] They have these
squiggly little green worms on top of shaved ice, and there’s corn. – Oh, yeah, it’s got coconut flavor. – It’s so good. – I just made eye contact with someone who’s very slowly eating noodles. (laughs) – My button broke, so I’m gonna
be looking very sexy today. – [Ned] Oh, yeah, that’s a good excuse. – And then my other button broke, so I’ll be looking very un-sexy today. – Don’t you think it’s appealing? Oh, this shit is bananas. I like it a bunch. (laughs) – We made a mistake. We
made a terrible mistake. Can you get a refund? – Next, we’re going to Little
India, which is the center for all of the amazing Indian
cuisine in Singapore. – Little India is the only place
where you can see everybody can sell anything along the roads. – So there’s all these,
like, floral situations, you can buy, like, edible
flowers, all these herbs, you can just walk by,
buy sodas, buy goods, it’s a super cool, like, street market, bizarre kind of feeling. – Neem leaves, okay? It can be found in India, in the wild. They are also considered to cure colds. – I’m coming off of a cold. – And just chew. It’s a bit bitter. – Oh my — Oh, it’s the most bitter
thing I’ve ever tasted. – It’s like licking a battery. – I think I’ll keep my cold. – Wet Market is where,
by all the producer, actually being sold, but we
have very wet floors. (laughs) That’s why it’s called “Wet Market.” – It’s the heart of the banana plant. – [Eugene] Exactly like a
grape, but shaped like a… – Thumb. – There’s a ton of respect
between the different people, the different cultures,
the different religions. They’re living amongst
each other harmoniously, in a way that’s really,
pretty wonderful to see. – [Ned] All the cuisines
and cultures mixed together and they’ve created
something incredibly unique. – [Zach] This biryani is so flavorful, and it’s a wet biryani, so
normally biryani is, like, a dryer rice, and this
is just dense with flavor and endlessly delicious. – Inject that into my veins. – Very good. Definitely
puts funyuns to shame. – You know, it’s gonna look like a crab, the way you’re holding it. – We had these amazing Indian dishes. There’s this thing, and it kinda
looks like a Greek dessert, and it was also, like, with
Indian spices, so delicious. – Whoa, the flavor on that is so good. I like this one more than that one. Maybe that’s the secret,
you get your insides so hot that you don’t realize
how humid it is outside. I don’t know if the world
knows this about me, but I’m a little Indian food slut. I could eat this all day,
everyday, for the rest of my life. – It was constant eating, and
little Wes was dancing a fool. – [Eugene] Chinatown is really
amazing here in Singapore, they have awesome dishes and
some really beautiful temples. Singapore’s the most religiously
diverse city in the world. – [Zach] Durian, if you don’t know, is the stinkiest fruit in all the land. – [Ned] Durian is seen in
a lot of videos we’ve done for challenges, but it’s been imported. – [Zach] People tell us, “well,
you have to have it fresh, it’s so much better.” – [Ned] So we’re gonna
give it another shot here. I’m a little worried about
how this is gonna go. – How would you describe this smell? Cause I really don’t know, it’s like… If fruit had a locker room,
after they worked out, this is what it would smell like. – As they washed themselves with garlic. – Cheers.
– Cheers. – What do you think? – Oh, it’s garlic. The initial flavor, very
abrasive, it’s garlic, but the inside is
actually pretty delicious. After you’re done cooking your linguine, you take your mango and you just rub it on the bottom of the pan, soak
up all that oil and garlic, pop it into your mouth, durian. – [Maggie] So smelly. – [Eugene] (laughs) Keith, are you okay? – Durian’s great, but you just
have to get it in Singapore. – My breath smells awful. Do not make out after durian. – There’s a bittery-ness, too. My wife, just give us a kiss. – No… (laughs) – That’s dope. Different video entirely. – [Keith] That’s gonna be the thumbnail. – [Eugene] What happened, Maggie? – Zach gave me a peck and it smelt so bad. – I’m so sorry! – No kisses for a week. – Arab Street is a really
cool part of the city. Zach, Maggie, and I are
gonna try the murtabak there, which is a new favorite dish of ours. – [Zach] It’s like a flat,
pancake, very flakey pastry, almost like you took the top
of a croissant, flattened it, and then put diced onion
and meat in the middle. – I’m a third-wheel, I’m a
third-wheel in the boat quay, Eugene’s a third-wheel
— I’m not a throuple! – Throuple! – You guys can wash your hands together, I’ll go for a walk. (japanese music) – Orchids. Or kids! – What time is it, Eugene? ♪ It’s orchid break time ♪ ♪ Orchid break ♪ ♪ You like orchids ♪ ♪ I like orchids ♪ ♪ Or kids ♪ ♪ Orchids, pink ♪ ♪ Or black. ♪ ♪ Yellow, orange, flowers, ♪ ♪ Sniff ’em, you’ll like ’em! ♪ ♪ We got orchids or kids, ♪ ♪ And, or adults or kids, ♪ ♪ all up in your butt. ♪ – One of the coolest things
in Singapore so far has been seeing the intersection of
architecture and nature. There are so many plants
everywhere you look. This has to be the greatest
city that I’ve ever been in. Singapore is, like, what you
wished the future looked like. – [Keith] There’s a
high rise that just has a fake boat at the top and it has the longest rooftop
infinity pool in the world, which is a crazy view, to, like, look across an infinity
pool and just see a skyline. – [Ned] And from the
top of Marina Bay Sands, you can also look down
through Gardens By The Bay, and the super trees in a lightshow. We kept Wes up a little past his bedtime, but then once the lights came on, he was just like, “wow!” – [Keith] A lot of it
was actual Disney songs, which we can’t use in this video, so here’s a sound-alike,
Disney-type, music track that we can use legally. – [Zach] A friend brought
us to Newton Circus, which is where they filmed the
movie, “Crazy Rich Asians”, you know, that dope Hawker scene? She disappears and says, “I’ll get you guys a couple bites to eat.” She comes back with fourteen dishes. We had chili crab and pepper crab. Pepper crab is, just, a revelation. Whoa, it’s so peppery. Peppery! It is just so much black pepper, that the flavor then becomes spicy. – This is so good. And this is just scratching the surface, there’s so much more to eat. – I think we’re married now. – No, you’re not. I married her. Put that ring back on! No! – Wait, does that mean
I’m married to Keith? – Yeah. – Sister-husbands. – Okay, I’d get down with that. – One of the things we
scheduled here is doing a cooking class where we
get to learn how to do some regional cuisine authentically. The dish that we’re
focusing on here is laksa. Laksa’s really one of
the most official foods you can get here in Singapore. – [Keith] If you’ve never
had it, the best way I can describe it is,
like, ramen meats tom kha, which is the Thai coconut soup. It has this very, like,
thick, rich experience, but it also is kind of ramen noodle-y. Super delicious. – [Ned] It really gave
me a better appreciation of everything that goes into it. – [Zach] It’s such a delicious soup, that someone we ran into
was making it as a cocktail. – Wow. It tastes just like laksa. – Wow, that’s really odd and good, yeah. – [Zach] We’re gonna learn
how to make spring rolls and then we are making
kueh dadar for dessert. – [Keith] It was really fun
to learn about the process, and also just handling
different ingredients that you’ve never handled before, rolling up these little,
like, green crepes that were filled with, like,
this really dense sugar. We had a great time! – Bon appetit everyone! (everyone cheers) – I also got to meet up
with my buddy Mike Chen, he runs the channel “Strictly Dumpling”, you saw him in our Eating
All The Dumplings video, he’s supercool, he just
happened to be in Singapore and we go to this place and get char siu, which is roast pork,
and it is bonkers good. Right, maybe some of the best
meat I’ve had in Singapore. We also had so many other dishes, including this prawn dish
where the lady is actually scooping the prawns out of the tank, plopping them into boiling
water, cooking noodles, taking those prawns out,
putting them on the dish, and handing them to you. It is fresh. This is, like, the chicken
noodle soup of shrimp and prawn, it is perfect. – It’s filled to the
brim with ingredients, so this is a fish head. This is, like, a dry fish head. – It is a dry fish head. How do you even eat that? – Just take a bite, it’s fine, there’s no bone, like,
the bones, it’s chewable. – He’s taking a bite, it’s fine. ♪ Okay, fine ♪ ♪ Orchids for kids ♪ ♪ Orchids for adults ♪ ♪ We love orchids ♪ ♪ Orchids all up in your butt ♪ ♪ What are these flowers ♪ ♪ Orchids, yeah ♪ ♪ Take some time to smell the flowers ♪ ♪ Orchids ♪ – [Keith] Maybe the most
confusing dish, carrot cake, it’s chopped up radishes
with egg and oyster sauce, but it was probably my
most favorite thing, and I can’t even eat eggs. – Whoa, that’s good. If anyone is watching and
you know where I can get good carrot cake in Los
Angeles, please tell me. – We did go eat a pig, and it was awesome. – Vegetarian. – This is, like, a pig
skin chip, and it is the most incredible bite I
have ever had in my life. Oh my god. – [Ned] Nightlife here is just so fun. It always seems like
there’s something to do, somewhere to go, people to meet, new foods to try, a culture to experience. – We’re getting in our party
bus with some strangers, let’s do it, another
country’s strangers, why not? (electronic dance music) – So skinny… Now, the real you! (everyone shouts) (Eugene laughs) – [Ned] Our trip is coming to an end, but there’s still one attraction left: the airport! – [Keith] It is, like, the
best airport in the world. No, literally, it was rated
the best airport in the world, because it is attached to a giant mall, but not just a mall, a mall
that the top floor is a park. It has, like, these sky
nets we’re climbing around. – Oh, look down, look at all the shops! – [Keith] It also has the largest indoor waterfall in the world. The largest indoor waterfall is in the best airport in the world. – [Eugene] I have never
been inside an airport like the Singapore airport. There’s also a Pokémon center! – I’ve had a blast here in Singapore, my stomach is as happy as it’s ever been. – [Keith] There’s really
no place on earth like it, where you can go and
have so many different eating experiences and
still go out and party, and also wake up and do it all over again. – It’s just such a special,
beautiful place that I highly recommend everyone
visit if they have a chance to. – And of course, seeing
everything through a baby’s eyes was that much more fun. We had a wonderful time in Singapore and can’t wait to come back. (rock music) ♪ Some got dots ♪ ♪ Some got knots ♪ ♪ Orchids ♪ ♪ We love ’em ♪ ♪ Orchids all up in your butt ♪
