If you are like me, your youtube watch list includes food, food and more food. There’s a huge variety of food related channels on YouTube and each of them have their own specialty. There are channels like Tasty, Bon Appétit, Grandpa Kitchen, Matt Stonie and tons more. There’s no dearth of good food around the world and some YouTube vloggers take us all over the globe through their videos. How fun it is to live vicariously through them! Watching their food videos helps me decide where I want to go in the future and what exactly to eat there. After all, we live to eat, don’t we? 🙂
Here, I have curated a list of my favorite YouTube travel food vloggers. Interestingly, they all mostly have videos related to Asian food. I am an Asian food lover myself and want to explore much more Asian food in the future. If you are a fan of Asian cuisine too, be sure to check out these channels and subscribe to them!

Mike Chen, the star of Strictly Dumpling is an Asian food enthusiast – and it shows! His love for food is evident in the way he talks about every dish. Mike has traveled to various parts of the world – India, Korea, Japan and more! The best part is that he gives genuine comments about the food, whether good or bad. His main channel boasts of 2.2 million subscribers who follow his food journey. One of my favorite food series by Mike Chen is when he visits 7 Eleven in different countries and shows what is unique in every single country. It’s a delight to watch him discover so much yummy food in every episode. I highly recommend his videos!
I used to follow Chonny during his Kpop and comedy video days. I recently rediscovered him and was pleasantly surprised. Now, Chonny, with Dalena, create awesome travel food vlogs. Together, they show viewers the best places to eat in Korea, Singapore, Australia etc. He gives a rating out of 10 to the food which helps viewers estimate if they want to visit that place or not. It’s a treat to watch the couple travel around different cities and explore so many different cuisines and delicacies.
Simon and Martina – the best couple ever! I might sound like a fangirl. That’s because I am. I have been following their adventures for years since the time they moved to South Korea. They have posted tons of videos about living in Korea and food in Korea. Now, they live in Japan and continue to show us amazing Japanese food. Simon and Martina are two amazing individuals who bring their positivity wherever they go. This couple is also hilarious. When you start watching their videos, you won’t be able to stop. So, don’t miss out and start now!
At the beginning of every video, you’ll be greeted by a warm, smiling face. That’s Trevor James, a street food and local food aficionado. He loves to get to know different cultures and shares his vast knowledge with his audience. His wonderful personality and food adventures have led him to amass 2.6 million subscribers on YouTube. Trevor believes that food is the best way to connect with others and I wholeheartedly agree! Food brings everyone together no matter where you’re from. Watch The Food Ranger to take a glimpse at street food from China, Malaysia, Thailand and more!
Any food and travel related list is incomplete without the one and only, Mark Weins! With a whopping 3.8 million subscribers, Mark has shown the world what a wonderful and knowledgeable video host he is! His face lights up whenever he sees food and that’s the mark of a food enthusiast right there. He’s also an author! Mark is based in Thailand but travels to many other countries in search of yummy food. I’m sure you are already following him but if you are not, you must!
These were some of my top picks for the best food travel YouTube channels that you should follow in 2019! I hope you enjoy watching their videos as much as I do. Each vlogger mentioned in this list has their own style and charm, which makes for an awesome viewing. Have fun!
