    1. TSENA’NY TANTSAHA TALATAMATY: Rice Porridge + Chinese Noodle Soup
    ADDRESS: Talatamaty City
    OPEN: 3AM - 7AM (or whenever the police shut it down)
    Four miles outside of Madagascar’s capital city, Antananarivo, lies Talatamaty City. Talatamaty City is home to one of the country’s largest local morning markets, Tsena’ny Tantsaha. Sellers open up shop at 3am, selling everything from produce to fabrics. And lucky for us, the market has no shortage of food to try as well.
    🥣RICE PORRIDGE: Zebu (Malagasy cattle) and sausage are mixed with leaves, ginger, special Malagasy rice, porridge and spices.
    🥡CHINESE NOODLE DISH: Pasta, macaroni, potato, mayonnaise and zebu skin.
    2. TALATA VOLON’ONDRY: Sausage + Koba
    ADDRESS: Talata Volon’ondry
    OPEN: Varies
    Talata Volon’ondry is a village located just outside of Antananarivo. The village is known for producing sausage and Madagascar’s national snack, koba.
    🥔SAUSAGE: There are typically two types of sausage being sold - zebu sausage and a halal style potato sausage. This snack is frequently accompanied by local rum.
    🇲🇬KOBA: Lay out banana leaf spines with banana leaves on top. Add a layer of rice flour to prevent the koba mixture from sticking to the banana leaves. Then add the koba mixture, a combination of crushed raw peanuts and sugar. Wrap it all up in the banana leaves and allow it to cook in a bit of water for 3 days.
    Koba is beloved across Madagascar, primarily sold on the street or to people in their cars as they drive through a city. The fuel from the ingredients gives people energy and helps them stay full even when walking long distances without and source of food along the way.
    💸PRICE: Sausage .14 USD/500 MGA | Koba .50 USD/1,756 MGA

    Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.
    I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I'm a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.

      @Arifan Malfoy Cool. It should come in handy. In every part of the world I've been (I've been to over 100 countries), I've found people who speak English so it really is useful international language.

    • Arifan Malfoy
      Arifan Malfoy 2 days ago

      @Shawn Reed We usually speak in French. My english seems "perfect" thanks to my school and youtube. (I'm just in 9th grade thought😅)

    • Shawn Reed
      Shawn Reed 2 days ago +1

      @Arifan Malfoy Yeah, I'm excited to eventually visit. Seems like the country has a lot of variety and tons to see and do. And at least from the video, people seem to be nice and friendly. I know the principle language is Malagasy, but is French widely spoken? Your English is perfect but I don't expect very many other people in Madagascar to know it.

    • Arifan Malfoy
      Arifan Malfoy 2 days ago

      @Shawn Reed yeah shame on me, the fact that a foreigner teaches me about my own culture is... I'm also agreeing with the lemurs part. Madagascar is more than that.

    • Shawn Reed
      Shawn Reed 3 days ago +1

      Wow. That's funny but also sad that you had to have an American show you. It's also nice seeing another side of Madagascar. The television usually only shows lemurs.
