episode 2: The Streetside Foodie (Jamie BARYS, UnTour Food Tours)

Food can be a window into a culture. But it can also be a barrier, especially when it comes to street food. Many can be intimidated to communicate with hawkers who often speak with strong dialects. And many can be turned off by hole-in-the-wall establishments, where there's no fancy décor, and definitely no English menu. Jamie Barys has made it her mission to remove these barriers, by offering tours that uncover some of the hidden delights of Chinese cuisine. In this episode, she reveals some of her favourite lesser-known dishes, explains the history and legends behind them, and also discusses how she has managed to pivot the focus of her business which, until 2020, had been reliant on tourists from outside of China. The episode also includes a catch-up interview with Lexis COMSTOCK from Season 01 Episode 20. Follow the full transcript for this episode at Subscribe to the PREMIUM version of this episode at See the visuals and join the community on Instagram (, Facebook (, and WeChat (
