  • - Today we become international men of mystery meat.
  • - Let's talk about that.
  • (playful theme music)
  • - Good Mythical Morning.
  • - You are in for a treat mythical beasts,
  • because today we're serving up some YouTube song parodies
  • that you have definitely probably never seen.
  • We're getting really angry about Christmas,
  • and we're actually cuddling with some zombies
  • during a performance by Langhorne Slim.
  • - Okay, but first, we are men of the streets.
  • We drive down 'em, we walk next to 'em,
  • and one time very recently, I actually crossed one.
  • - Good for you. - Yeah.
  • - But the best thing about the streets is street food,
  • it's also the best thing about food.
  • - You think so?
  • - Street food is my favorite food.
  • Like I always say, street got the best meat.
  • - I've never heard you say that, but I'm not gonna--
  • - I'm gonna start saying it a lot.
  • - I'm not gonna disagree.
  • - Today we're gonna see if we can identify
  • the origin of some amazing street foods, it's time for,
  • - [Together] Where in the World Do These
  • International Street Foods Come From?
  • - Okay, now as you know, I typically dominate this game,
  • when we throw darts at the board and make choices
  • about food-- - Ho, ho, ho,
  • ho, ho, ho, I seem to remember that I won the last time.
  • - You can remember that Link barely beat me
  • when I gave him a number of very large advantages,
  • so to even the playing field back a little bit.
  • - It was a sad way to win.
  • - You're still going to get an advantage,
  • here's the, you're gonna get two advantages today.
  • So as you know, what we do is we have a food come out,
  • we taste it, and then we guess where it came from
  • by throwing a dart over there at Chase.
  • - Well at the board, we would never throw a dart at Chase.
  • - Link throws it at Chase, I throw it at the board.
  • And then Chase measures how far you are
  • from the actual guess, and the combined distance adds up,
  • it's like golf, lowest score wins.
  • Now, what we're gonna do is I'm gonna go first every round,
  • so that then that you can, based on your choice,
  • on my choice, that gives you a distinct advantage,
  • and you're gonna get one fart.
  • And of course, if you're a mythical beast, you know
  • a fart means throwing four darts at the same time.
  • - I've already used my fart.
  • You didn't recognize it.
  • - Well you get another one, you get another,
  • I don't get any farts, you get one fart.
  • Let's do this.
  • (upbeat chanting)
  • - Hopefully when I win, I will get to eat
  • an amazing new street food that we have invented,
  • which is the pizza-wrapped gyro.
  • - He-ro. - Gyro.
  • Let's bring in the next food item.
  • - Or how about the first one. - The first one.
  • - So a burrito with hot dogs hanging out of it.
  • - We're sharing this, okay.
  • It is, - What is that?
  • - It looks to me like you've got hot dog wieners,
  • you've got a pita sort of situation,
  • you've got, this looks like potatoes.
  • - That's amazing, is that mashed potatoes?
  • - This seems like something that I would have made like
  • if my parents left me alone when I was in eighth grade.
  • You know what I'm saying?
  • It's like, I don't know you mom, you left the taters out,
  • - Can I take a look at it? - And you know I like wieners.
  • - Alright so you get to go first.
  • Now, on this map,
  • - I want to eat it man>
  • - Oh you want to eat it?
  • - Come on, yeah, take me back to eighth grade, home alone.
  • - Thanks for leaving me a wiener untouched.
  • You grazed it with your mustache.
  • - What, is that-- - Slaw.
  • - That's little shrimp. - Oh it's shrimp.
  • - That's freakin' shrimp.
  • - Oh my goodness. - Shrimp dog.
  • - I gotta squeeze that stuff to the end.
  • - Okay, now another advantage
  • that we don't talk about quite often Link
  • is the fact that you're always closer to the board.
  • Let me just say, you always had that,
  • I throw from back here, you throw from up there.
  • I mean-- - Thank you.
  • That is good, so good.
  • - What kind of people would be, like,
  • hungry eighth-grade Rhett.
  • I think that they would do this in Hungary.
  • - Cause you eat it when you're--
  • - Hungary.
  • This definitely screams like, man I'm just hungry.
  • You know what I'm saying?
  • That's why I'm gonna throw it at
  • Sweden.
  • I threw it at Hungary.
  • - Alright let me get my dart here,
  • and you know what, I'm not gonna get that much closer.
  • Man, that's awesome.
  • - It's really good, the shrimp--
  • - Wherever it is, I'm going there.
  • - How do you get such small shrimp?
  • - You gotta go to Portugal. - Oh, okay.
  • Oh gosh, whoa, we're way up in Antarctica,
  • no, no, what is that, that's not Antarctica,
  • that's the north pole.
  • - That's the Arctic, man. - The Arctic,
  • the Arctic Circle. - At least I know
  • what it is. - You're well into
  • the Arctic Circle. - Man.
  • - [Stevie] Okay guys, I'm gonna apologize in advance
  • for I'm sure mispronouncing all of these, but here we go.
  • This is tunnbrodsrulle, a flatbread cone
  • filled with mashed potatoes, hot dogs, and shrimp salad
  • consumed on the streets of Sweden.
  • - No! - Yeah boy!
  • - He's hitting on it, and he didn't even want to.
  • - I'm a natural man, - What the crap.
  • I can't help it.
  • Hey, you're still, you're not that bad, man.
  • Get it out of here.
  • - Alright Link, you had 20, and Rhett you had three.
  • - Good job Rhett.
  • - Alright next food.
  • (upbeat chanting)
  • - I can already smell this one, and it's not even here yet.
  • Oh gosh.
  • - Okay, what is that, it looks like--
  • - Oh you're not gonna do well with this.-
  • - Fish.
  • - You're not gonna do well,
  • it's got what we call a high smell,
  • you know what I'm saying,
  • - It's chunks. - Like the bottom of
  • a dumpster, it's a high smell.
  • - It's chunks of fermented stinky stink.
  • - You think it's like cheese?
  • - But it's got chili sauce on it.
  • - That's a clue.
  • Okay, let me see what we got here.
  • - I mean I don't think tasting it is gonna help me
  • learn anything that my nose hasn't already told me.
  • - Alright, it's cheese.
  • - Oooh, it's cheese.
  • - It is a very stinky cheese with a chili sauce on it.
  • You're not gonna handle this-- (Link retches)
  • - Gosh that's bad.
  • Like I just wanna took - No, no.
  • - One of these darts, and I want to put it through my face.
  • - That is not pleasant.
  • - That is just, I'm throwing away the fork.
  • - Wow, cheese throws me off, 'cause the chili sauce
  • makes me think Taiwan, Vietnam.
  • - And you know what I'll say.
  • - Say it Link.
  • - The aftertaste
  • - Not bad. - Isn't that bad.
  • - 'Cause you spit it out.
  • - But it starts to just taste like an aggressive cheese
  • after a while. - I'm taking a chance here.
  • - It's an acquired taste.
  • - I'm taking a chance.
  • I know that there was a French influence in Vietnam,
  • that's why they have baguette there,
  • so I'm going Vietnam.
  • Whoa, woo! - I can't believe.
  • I can't believe.
  • - I hope I'm right man.
  • Did I actually hit it Chase?
  • - No, you're like, - I'm very close, though.
  • - [Chase] I think you're less than a centimeter away.
  • - After this round, we're switching darts.
  • It must be the darts.
  • - Now he's onto something.
  • - I'm gonna be yellow darts next time.
  • You convinced me, though.
  • It's freaking Vietnam.
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, go for it, just don't hit my dart.
  • - If I knock your dart off, you don't get points.
  • Agreed? - Challenge accepted.
  • - Hey, it's really not a bad dart throw,
  • it's just compared to mine.
  • What do we got?
  • - [Stevie] Guys, this isn't cheese.
  • It's chou dou fu, which is stinky tofu,
  • a fermented tofu with a very pungent scent
  • commonly found in the night markets of Taiwan.
  • - Oh, okay. - Still close, you were--
  • - [Rhett] Pretty close.
  • - But I missed on the wrong side,
  • I could've made a slow comeback.
  • - Stinky tofu.
  • - Oh gosh.
  • - Alright Link, you had 15, and Rhett you had five.
  • (upbeat chanting)
  • - Okay, next item.
  • - Oh, it looks like an elephant ear from the state fair
  • with, is that-- - It looks like
  • sour cream, cheese, and some kind of
  • - Chive. - Chive.
  • - Okay, shall we just bite it?
  • - I tell you right now this is gonna be very good,
  • Lady and the Tramp.
  • Oh man. - That is good.
  • - It's like a - Oh gosh.
  • - It's like fried dough with potato toppings.
  • - How come we didn't know about this already?
  • - This is brilliant.
  • Let me know everything you think.
  • - These are people who have a lot of insight into
  • - I'm taking your darts
  • - Fried foods. - I'm giving you my darts.
  • My cursed darts.
  • - They have an appreciation for dairy,
  • which is not across the world.
  • That's why the tofu threw me off,
  • because not big on cheese in the Far East.
  • Who is big on cheese and cream?
  • - I have an answer, uninfluenced by anything you're saying.
  • I believe that this is Hungary.
  • Or Sweden. - Every time you aim
  • for Hungary, you hit Sweden.
  • - Yeah, that's a problem.
  • - So I know you didn't get it right this time.
  • - That's a problem in my life.
  • - I have one fart. (bells ringing)
  • And I think I'm gonna go ahead and use it.
  • Just out of sheer strategy, you aiming at the middle
  • of the board, then I can spread 'em.
  • - Oh, you going horizontal.
  • - And take the lead with a horizontal spread.
  • I'd stand back here.
  • - This is when things get very, very dangerous.
  • - For the record, my answer is Morocco.
  • Because of the, they like to sour cream stuff.
  • - How you know this?
  • - I've been there.
  • Fart the heck out of this.
  • - Put that on a t-shirt.
  • I'm gonna fart the heck out of this.
  • - Gotta get the sidearm.
  • - Gosh, it's so scary.
  • I don't know what to say about that one that didn't hit
  • the board, and did hit metal.
  • - Alright, so three hit the board, and one of those
  • is not at Morocco.
  • - Alright, Stevie, what do we got?
  • - [Stevie] You guys just ate langos,
  • a deep-fried flatbread traditionally served
  • with sour cream, grated cheese, and a variety
  • of other toppings in Hungary.
  • - Hey brother.
  • - But you didn't hit Hungary.
  • - I didn't, I hit Sweden.
  • - Alright Link you had 12, and Rhett, you had five again.
  • - Oh good, five's less than 12.
  • (upbeat chanting)
  • - Bring in a food dude.
  • - Bring in a food. - What is it, oh gosh.
  • - We've got what looks to be-- - Fried sardines.
  • - [Rhett] Sardines with some sort of chili sauce.
  • - And a lemon.
  • So let's squeeze this lemon.
  • - Squeeze the lemon onto the fish.
  • - [Link] Onto the fishies.
  • - I have a feeling that - And a litte bit on the dip
  • - This is going to be good, and probably spicy.
  • This could easily be-- - Morocco.
  • - Morocco, Yemen, or Mozambique.
  • This is definitely from the African continent,
  • even though Yemen is not, it gets real close,
  • almost touches it.
  • - There's not a lot of headless fish
  • that I enjoy on this show, but that's one of 'em.
  • - Where would the littlest fish be?
  • - Where would the littlest fish be?
  • - It's either Yemen or Mozambique, 'cause they're kinda
  • crowded into a little spot of the ocean.
  • I'm gonna play it safe, I am,
  • I got a pretty nice lead, I could just aim for the Congo,
  • and just, you know, do like a trilateral situation.
  • - Can you throw the dart?
  • - But I'm gonna go with my instinct,
  • and I'm gonna aim between Yemen and Mozambique.
  • And I'm gonna hit Russia!.
  • - [Link] I know what that feels like, I do it all the time.
  • - I opened the door for ya.
  • - I just don't, I'm not feeling your Yemen.
  • Again, I think Morocco, I definitely think it's Morocco.
  • - Oh, hey sucka, you may have made up the difference.
  • Alright what do we got here? - This could do it.
  • - [Stevie] These are sardine bel chermoulas,
  • fried sardines served with a paste made from tomato,
  • olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, and other spices
  • from Morocco - Boom daddy!
  • - Nice Link. - Alright,
  • what's this gonna do for me, there's no way--
  • - Oh it's gonna do quite a bit I believe.
  • - Rhett you had 29, and Link you had three.
  • - Three, that's, wow.
  • I won that round.
  • - You're still losing.
  • - But I won't that round. - You're close.
  • - I won that round.
  • (upbeat chanting)
  • - So how far down am I?
  • - You're only down by eight now.
  • 50 to 42, Link, dude,
  • you're back in it, eight is so easily erased.
  • - Bring in some, what
  • on Earth?
  • This is a--
  • - It's not a potato, this is a freaking rat.
  • How did you guys get rat?
  • Look, you can even see the hair.
  • - Ew, oh my gosh. - It's a freaking rat.
  • - I see innards.
  • - Oh look at the hair on the side,
  • look at the hair on your side.
  • - Okay, okay, let's not, let's just--
  • Alright we have to eat it to know that it's rat.
  • - I'm gonna go for this part.
  • - Oh the skin, get through the skin, get to the meat.
  • - Tastes like turkey.
  • - Yeah, it does.
  • - It tastes very turkey-ish.
  • There's a little gamey aftertaste.
  • - A little, it's so greasy.
  • Where would they eat rodents?
  • You know what, this could be, this might be
  • a freaking guinea pig.
  • This might not be a rat, this might be a guinea pig.
  • They eat guinea pigs in South America.
  • - You're talking Peru? - That's the only one
  • I see in South America.
  • - Oooh, you hit DC.
  • Alright, I agree.
  • - I'm pretty, listen, all you have to do is get
  • eight centimeters closer than me,
  • and you win Link, because I'm almost positive
  • that I'm right about this.
  • - Cool Hand Luke.
  • - Why am I throwing so high today?
  • Dang it, I left the door open again.
  • - Don't Peru-ve me wrong.
  • - What, dude,
  • dude, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, hey, no, no,
  • whoa, hey, hey, hey, hey.
  • Well okay, none of these count by the way.
  • - I always wanted to hit that spot.
  • - You surround it, I don't know which,
  • what was the first one there?
  • It was the one that was closest to--
  • - You know, I feel better now.
  • I'm sorry I threw a tantrum,
  • I hope Lando wasn't watching.
  • Don't be like daddy.
  • - Where do you think he got it from?
  • No, the one next to Morocco.
  • - This guy. - Yep, right there.
  • - Okay. - That is correct, like?
  • Like?
  • - Yeah, like it, that is it.
  • Alright what is it, like?
  • - [Stevie] This is cuy, which translates to guinea pig,
  • and we took off some choice parts just for you,
  • but they do serve them whole in Peru.
  • - Peru. - We were both right.
  • Man.
  • - I don't think you've made up the difference.
  • - Oh, I don't think I did.
  • - Alright, Rhett, you had 16, and Link, you had 22.
  • - Oh congratulations Rhett.
  • Hey you know what, you really did a good job,
  • - That was a - I gotta give it to you.
  • - Tough competition today. - You did it.
  • - That was tough to beat, man.
