    About This Episode:
    Cambodia is not for the feint of heart. This place, especially the main tourist areas are intense as hell with nonstop yelling from aggressive salespeople doing their best to hustle for some cash.

    My fondest memories of Cambodia were in the countryside and more specifically in this small village. I met so many friendly people with no agenda other than to satisfy their curiosity as to why the heck this giant foreigner was on their turf.

    Dani, my guide in Siem Reap, is cooking up a local classic, Prahok which is made using Cambodian Cheese. This cheese is actually fish that's been fermenting for over one year. Now let's see if Dani can actually make this taste good. Ready? Go.

    About Sonny Side:
    I’m not sponsored. I’m not rich. I’m just some guy who wanted to make the type of travel videos that I would want to see. This show is completely self-funded so thanks for patiently watching that five second advertisement (and read below how you can support this channel).

    I am a video director by trade. Each time I travel to a new country I bring a cameraman with me, usually a friend, to shoot as many episodes as possible in a short amount of time (usually a week). The rest of the time I’m working as a video director/videographer in Vietnam and editing the crap out of these videos.

    Much love and remember, Don't Think, Just Chew.

    Dear Best Ever Fans,

    I've started a Patreon funding page that will go toward replacing my drone. You can find my Patreon page here:

    There are going to be all kinds of awesome rewards to those who join:
    1. Early viewing of episodes (with no ads)
    2. Voting on topics like countries, foods, etc.
    3. Getting a personal update video every two weeks where I talk about what's new with BEFRS including projects I can't talk about here.

    Please take a moment to check it out.

    If you don't know how Patreon works, fans are able to donate a certain amount of money ($1, $5, $10) per weekly video. It doesn't have to be a lot, but if a lot of people join together it can make a big difference. A few fans of already donated! :)

    This may be far off, but once I hit $250 a week I will start doing vlogs, which many of you have requested.

    As always, thank all of you for your ongoing support. I don't need millions of subs. I keep doing this because of you guys.

    That weird fruit looks like a mini version of the noni fruit that grows wild in northern Australia. It stinks like blue cheese and rotten onions and tastes like composted vegetables.

My father would use the Cambodian cheese in alot of Khmer dishes and I avoid eating it. Lol.. I'm just too Americanize. Born in Cambodia, my parents fled the killing fields when I was 2 years old to the United States. I visited Cambodia numerous times. I love other Cambodian food but not the stinky cheese. Lol 😁😁😁😁😁 Keep up the great work. My wife and I love watching your food videos!!!!!

                                                  Listening to everyone laugh at the kitesurfer picture was great!

                                                  Post script,
                                                  Do you have a significant other or do you “meet” tons of woman on your travels about the world at large.
                                                  I remember during one video you fancied a really pretty brown/dark hair woman that was with a couple other woman and you wanted to talk a bit more with her.
                                                  I left that video saying to myself that you indeed had a chance to talk to her after filming and had a fantastic night! You and duder filming indulged big time and partied hardy with that group of woman travelers and still to this day high five when reminiscing about that night with T-dawg.


                                                  Keep up the awesome work and I really hope the network’s smarten up and give you a hour long show.
                                                  I’ll pander for you and what not in favor of you getting your own show.

                                                        You can tell he used to be a fat boy. He always shovels food into his mouth no matter what it is, chews like two three times and swallows it down. He probably takes 30min to take a shit. Take smaller bites dude, your food wont run away, enjoy it.
