Sometimes it’s useful to look at your home city with a fresh pair of eyes. When that new perspective comes courtesy of anorexic-turned-globetrotting-power-eater Furious Pete, the result can be very funny as well.
In the latest episode of Furious World Tour, the adventurous Pete hits up Beijing’s hotspots with his characteristic Canadian suave. Along the way, accompanied by the Beijinger’s Marilyn Mai, he samples multiple bowls of hand-pulled noodles, applewood-roasted duck, “pizza,” spiders, scorpions of different sizes, smelly starfish (he’s not a fan), and curry chicken from the infamous House of Poo Poo… among other stuff. The production quality may not be the highest, but this is a travel video done right.
Be sure to watch for the cameo of Joanna Wong and Beijing’s kung fu school.
