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.

About the Author: Best Ever Food Review Show


  1. That's food at it's best. Huge portions yet I saw no fat people in the entire video. That's what u get when u eat lot of meat instead of sugar.

  2. I might not have a right to speak because I've never left America but I always see these people try a foreign food and shake their heads as a "no" to signify how good it is and if someone did that after a bite of my food I'd instantly think they don't like it

  3. nice but the fact is Uzbekistan is like #5 in the world for deaths by heart disease, and hearth disease accounts for almost 40% of the total deaths in that country every year. not trying to talk shit, and with all due respect to their culture and cuisine, but that food seems very unhealthy. thats a lot of fried stuff~
