Hot Dog at Penn Station and Flying from NYC to Hong Kong on United Airlines (16 Hour Flight!)

– That is awesomely good. It is very tender and
you can really taste that really reduced red wine sauce. Good morning everyone. It’s Mark Wiens with in New York City. Last night I had a little bit of a dream about that coffee in the fridge. So I just woke up, I’m
gonna start with the coffee. I don’t have a bottle opener,
but I do have a spoon. Let’s see if I can do
this, it’s been a while. Oh yeah. Alright, success. I think it’s a very light
roast which I really like because you can taste the full body, the full flavor of the coffee and it is kind of like a roasted
caramel brown color to it, and very aromatic as soon as I popped that lid on that bottle. Smells kind of like, a little bit fruity. Oh that tastes good. It’s kind of earthy
actually, rather than fruity. The more I sit here and
keep drinking this coffee, it just keeps getting better and better. The complexity and I
keep tasting new flavors. It’s amazing, and it’s so smooth and it really is just like coffee juice, the nectar, this cold brew. Wow it’s good. Goodbye New York City,
this is an awesome view. And thank you very much to
Courtyard Marriott Chelsea. We’ve had a fantastic stay,
staff are awesome here and this is literally a prime location, right around the corner from Penn Station. A great place to stay when
you’re in New York City. It’s time to move on to
the next destination. We have come to my final
bite in New York City. I’m gonna make it happen right over there on the street corner just
outside of Pennsylvania Station. I just came to thinking, I
have not had a hot dog yet in New York City. I ordered a hot dog, got everything on it, and this a halal cart so
it’s a 100% beef hot dog, and I got all the toppings,
put on some sauerkraut, some ketchup and mustard. And it’s a boiled hot dog as well. I saw him pull it out of the hot water. Simple and classic. Hot dog, the bread, the
little bit of spicy mustard, and then that sauerkraut to give it a little bit of a fresh crispness. The hot dog is okay, but what
I love is this atmosphere, right here in Madison Square
Garden, buildings surrounding. There are lots of people
and what I love so much about New York City is just
the incredible diversity. People from all walks of life. From every culture to the
farthest corners of the globe. You hear different
languages standing here, you see different cultural
traditions standing here. I think that’s really what
sums up New York City. We bought our tickets and
again we are flying out of Newark International Airport. Have about a 20 minute wait
until the next train leaves. We made it to the airport. We are flying with United
from Newark to Hong Kong. This is gonna be by far the longest flight on this entire round
the world trip for food. I think it’s about 16
hours on this flight. And if you’re just
joining me on this video I wanted to just really
quickly fill you in. Right now my wife Ying and I are on a trip with Star Alliance, a round the world trip for food. We are traveling to a total of
nine different destinations. We started in Bangkok,
so that’s 10 destination if you count our home base in Bangkok, and we’re traveling around
with the specific purpose of eating delicious food. So this is, it’s hard to believe actually that we’re coming to the
end of the trip right now. We are gonna fly to Hong Kong and then be in Hong Kong
for a couple of days, then we’ll fly back to Bangkok and that will complete the entire circle, the entire trip around the
world with Star Alliance. If you haven’t already watched
the entire video series they will be in a full playlist which I will leave the link
in the description box below. You can watch all of the
videos in consecutive order and follow this entire trip
round the world for food. On our way to Hong Kong, and again we’re flying business class. Starting off with a welcome champagne. And this is one flight
that I am looking forward to all 16 hours of, are
you looking at the menu? Hello. No thank you. What’s on the menu Ying? – Beef, stir fry noodle, salmon.
– Oh short rib. Short rib or salmon. The short rib sounds fantastic. (pilot speaking on intercom) We are about 30 minutes into this flight and it is time for lunch. On the menu this says
this is Balik style salmon with remoulade sauce. And wow that is a pretty
thick, hearty slice of salmon and there are maybe sun
dried tomatoes in the middle? Is that one slice of salmon? Oh that is huge. Oh it’s so soft and tender and
buttery, just creamy, oily. And there’s also some
kind of a sauce here. It’s like a little bit of a
horseradish kind of sauce. And that is just such
a huge chunk of salmon. That salmon is so tender, you
can cut it with your fork. The meal is served course by course so it is salad course now, and I got the balsamic
vinaigrette dressing. Thank you.
– And for you anything else? Ma’am, anything else?
– We’re good, thank you. For main course I got the
short rib with red wine sauce, and then it came with mashed
potatoes, and carrots, and green beans, and a tomato. Oh that’s so tender. Get a close-up look at that. That is awesomely good. It is very tender and you can really taste that really reduced red wine sauce. That is seriously good. What I will do is take the pepper and sprinkle it on generously. Next up, this is the pre-dessert snacks. Cheese and grapes and crackers. Okay, let me start off
with this cheese here. Oh that is a very crumbly, oh thank you. That is a very crumbly, dry cheese. I think it’s a goat cheese. It does have a very kind
of animaly taste to it. It’s like cream cheese, though. That has to be followed by a grape. The immediate juicy
sweetness of that grape. And finally, the last course
of this meal is dessert, and it is gelato. And Ying and I decided to share one, and Jean really hooked up the
chocolate sauce, the fudge. She just poured it all over the ice cream. That is sweet, and then I
also got a cup of tea here. And that completes this gourmet meal. I just woke up, it’s
about an hour and a half until we land in Hong Kong and
it’s time for breakfast now, starting with a coffee. And sorry about the bed head. Actually I’m not really sorry. And for my main course for
breakfast I chose the omelette. Came with some herbed sausage, and you can really see all of the spices within that sausage. There’s potatoes here and
also maybe some kind of, what’s the orange thing? Pumpkin or squash or something? I’ll go with the spoon for this. All of a sudden there’s
a bunch of turbulence. I gotta start with that herb sausage. Whoa, this is a shaky camera. Full of like, herbs and
tastes like apple as well. And omelette. Is that cheese and also maybe
some black beans in here. I think that’s like a creamy, cheesy sauce actually underneath that omelette. [Pilot Speaking On Intercom]
Ladies and gentlemen United and our Star
Alliance partners and our international flight crew welcome you to Hong Kong International Airport. The local time is approximately 7:18pm – [Flight Attendant]
Where do you go from here? – Bangkok. That’s where we’re from. My wife is from. Congratulations, bye. Two meals, three movies, and about six hours of on and off sleep, and we have arrived in Hong Kong. It’s about 7:30 pm. We’re waiting for our bag
now but I just wanted to say thank you to United Airlines, and especially to Jean
and Anna and the captain and the whole crew of that airline. They really took care of us that flight. – [Taxi Driver] Where are you going to? – [Mark] JW Marriott. – [Taxi Driver] Okay, hello. – When you arrive in Hong Kong, there’s a very convenient train, or I’ve also taken the bus before from the airport to the town. But Ying is not feeling
very well right now so we decided to take a
taxi directly to our hotel. But it’s great to be in Hong Kong. Okay thank you very much. – [Hotel Attendee] Have
a wonderful stay with us. – Thank you. (cheering) – Ying is pretty happy
to be at this hotel. We’re staying at JW Marriott. We got all checked in, and she was just going over our benefits. We have breakfast, afternoon
tea, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, evening snacks, and other
refreshments all day long. It’s like all you can eat, all day long, in this hotel, and we are
going up to our room right now. What floor are we on? Oh I gotta clear my ears. We’re on the 35th floor. This is a nice hotel. Alright. On, oh is this the AC. Let’s take a quick tour of the room. Have the bed right in the center there. Oh Ying is already hanging
out on that sofa chair. Desk on the side here. And this is like a corner,
do we have the corner room? Or we at least have a corner window. There’s a little bit of a
glare on the window right now. Oh yeah, but if you look close, I’m not sure if you can see. No, probably not picking up on the camera, oh there we go. You can see that view. I’m sure tomorrow morning we’ll have a better view in the daylight. And now over to the bathroom. Oh by the way, the drink station, water, coffee maker, water boiler,
and bathroom in here. Every kind of bathroom thing you need. Toilet is here. And shower, both a shower, and a tub. And that completes the tour of the room. This is a really nice room. I’ve been to Hong Kong a number of times so this isn’t my first
time to Hong Kong but Hong Kong remains one of my
favorite cities in the world. It’s just an amazing city. The buildings, the architecture,
the food is awesome and so for the next four days
we’re gonna be in Hong Kong. It’s hard to believe that
this is our final destination on this round the world trip
for food with Star Alliance. But happy to be in Hong Kong. It’s been a long day. Ying and I are both a
little disoriented right now but it is around 9 pm in Hong Kong so I don’t think we’ll do
anything for tonight. We’re gonna go to bed pretty soon. I’m gonna end the vlog
for today right now. Thank you all very much

New York to Hong Kong, and please remember to give this video a thumbs up if you enjoyed it. Also click subscribe for lots

  1. Everything you eat is wow amazing & super fantastic. This can't be. If you want to be taken serious, you have to say once in a while that this food sucks.

  2. Next time when you and your family will be in the New York you need to try Chipotle Mexican Grill and Nathan's Famous – Coney Island in Brooklyn

  3. Love New York and its diversity. Shame that the present administration in the USA wants to rid us from the rest of the world!

  4. Why is it that you don't show your wife having fun with food with your son too, what's up with that.

  5. I think the law changed where all vendors in the city now have to show listed prices. Which is the way it should be. Never goto a vendor that doesn't have prices listed. I go back to NYC every year and it seems like all or most vendors have the prices listed.

  6. Mark is a total pro. He is excited about airplane food. He is like the energizer bunny. You can't stop him.

  7. Ying being about 6 months pregnant she is a real trooper keeping up with the pace she and Mark set. Love this couple and of course Micah! ?

  8. Them halal trucks will get you. Trust me that ain't beef you eating. I've never paid 4 bucks for a hotdog in the middle of the city where theres like a million other carts selling the same dogs. I will buy one if they throw it on a Kaiser roll and its Dietz & Watson.

  9. For the love of God …man! No one…and I mean no self respecting man puts ketchup on a hot dog! Completely ruins it!

  10. Why is it when he goes to a third world country he gets free food and hospitality but when he’s in NY one of the richest state you gotta pay for everything and people are rude ??????

  11. I have bad memories of Hong Kong my first time there was New Year's Eve 2017 my girlfriend and I had a Salmonella poisoning in a supposedly exquisite sushi bar as well as the hotels were extremely overpriced ;-(

  12. Hot dog vendors in Toronto are wayyyyy better… In fact you're average hot dog stand at a Canadian Tire in SW Ontario are better than New York's shitty water dogs. Don't get hotdogs in NY, overpriced junk.

  13. hi You weth family come my home . I am srilanka, you like luke at the , mapalana water full , place

  14. Mark you and your wife are so sweet.. I’m so happy watching all your videos.. your eyes smile so amazingly it’s refreshing ???

  15. I know I’m wrong for this but many times throughout this guys videos, I want to slap him. It’s for sure the bully in me.

  16. twist cap… twist cap…I would trying to open that freaking bottle with two spoons…And let see…. if anybody going to stop me….
