Trevor is currently living in Chengdu, Sichuan China. He is the man bringing real Chinese street food in the YouTube game. He has an amazing knowledge of the chinese cuisine, especially Sichuanese food. (I have discovered a lot of Sichuanese dishes thanks to his videos).
Living in China, Trevor travels different places around the country; Xinjiang, wuhan, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Xi’an,… to help us discover the amazing local food scene of China. He is perfectly skilled in Chinese which helps him a lot during his adventures; Especially in order to interact with the locals and find the secret hidden gems that are almost impossible to find for an average tourist.
He also vlog about food in other parts of the world, he recently went to Vietnam, India and Thailand to discover and try all kind of street food.
As he puts it quite simply, his dream is to “Keep eating and travelling the world forever, a non-stop adventure!” (I guess it’s every Foodie’s dream! aha).
