Home cooked Amazon, food it's gonna be an amazing adventure in, the Amazon so, we're on our way. On. Our way first to go try to seek out some exotic. The Amazon, is just a paradise. Of fruit, exotic fruit we're gonna seek, out some exotic fruit for, breakfast, before we then go to the river to take the boat. Mattie, Mattie she sells an amazing, selection of exotic fruit fruits that I've never seen before, tropical. Amazon, fruit stall this is hell Mario nada muddy, muddy. Muddy muddy muddy. Fashion. Is, not a job. Yes. You. Would not even think that it's a fruit and she, kind of like twist it to open it up on the inside it looks like like, like Mentos, like a pack of mentos. Like. Immediately, it tastes like a green apple but. Like slimy. Well that's incredible it comes out of that pot they just fit perfectly. They're like little tablets. It is remarkable how, similar it tastes to a green apple. Really, juicy really fresh really, really. Cute. Inga. Locally. It's called Inga but I'm pretty sure the English name is ice cream pods or like an ice cream ice, cream beans, that's what it is when you can feel that it's my premium. Okay. We. Lost one doesn't. Really have much of an aroma. Oh. It's. Like creamy. It. Does kind of taste like vanilla ice cream do, another troops where it's there's not a lot of meat to eat you just kind of shuck the flesh and just kind of slimy. Beauty. Balm the outside, appearance is just a minute oh here it is back here you, can see this is the fruit but. It. Looks, like cherimoya. Or, kind, of yeah kind of like a cherimoya or soursop but then it has these amazing little spikes almost like melting, like juicing, because, it's so ripe. You know like smell cream in it try, to scoop out some of this. Well, this one is awesome. It's, so sweet it's, perfectly sour I'm kind of dissolved in your mouth and then you got your little seeds almost like watermelon, tea very, similar to cherimoya and then kind of like with, a sour sup type, of sourness like a mellow sourness, that's just like it just, tastes amazing that's, like pudding pudding. In a pod. That, is so good. Just. Made it to the market we're gonna go check out the market maybe some more fruits and just see some of the the local life in manaus before we take the boat to the jungle. This. Cup of tea is there is the the sundae on here make with the tokoha is. It is that. Wow. Obrigado, right, at the entrance of the market we found another fruit it's called Takuma and they're peeling it you peel the skin and then they cut it in like a floral. Formation. And almost like a plasticy, aroma. Well. That, is not. Sweet at all more, like bitter but. The flavor keeps on coming it's almost like confusing, what even it tastes like.
Kind, Of like meat almost that's, like harder you can feel the oil the fat in it. Well. What that's gonna pack the vibrant, colors so, many fruits and vegetables, from. The Amazon. This. Entire area is filled with markets but we're walking over to the Municipal Market where. We're gonna try a local, street food that's very common for breakfast, like a sandwich. Looks. Like a mini passion, fruit but just kind of like open up your skin inside it kind of looks like a like. A log in. Well. That's amazing. It's. Perfectly, shower again like milky, the amount of like milky, fruits I just saw behind me look at this guy he's munching one of those pods that we had earlier in the morning that, is awesome just eating it like a drumstick. Wow, the fruit snacking, fear is out of control, and these, are all like unique fruits every single, one of the fruits is new to me, Jenny papa Jeannie. Jeannie Jeannie. Papa. It's called genie papa oh wow. That, smells like, it. Smells like fermented raisins the, entire shell, it's not even a shell it's like it's, mushy and then, it looks like just. Like straight like fibrous. Machinist. On the inside that, is unique. While it has this like almost fumes, coming. Out of it but, it's like really, ripe tasting, very. It's. Almost unexplainable kinda, tastes like butter kind of tastes like caramel to me. We. Just stepped into the indoor section, of the Municipal Market and they sell fish here amazing. Huge. Beautiful. So. Fresh right out of the massive, rivers. Okay, so whatever, tender we choose it's good I say right inside the market we've stopped at a little cafe they have a number of cafes where they just have some seating some tables, some plastic, tables around we've ordered what is one of a specialty, of this region in the Amazon. Oh. This. Is with also with the. Co-defendant. We've, got two different things one of both, with that fruit now we just tasted a little while ago at the market but. Two amazing, things the more traditional one is actually the sandwich which is in a bread. There's, banana, in there there, is, I. Think it's just banana fried, banana, and the talk will be fruit in a toasted bun but the other one we got is just, fascinating. To me like, a circular. Tapioca. Cassava. Shell, I cannot wait to try this. That just like it works the. Tapioca shell. It's. Kind of elastic eve then you've got the really sweet caramelized banana, in there paired with that like meaty. It actually is like me t2 will be with, like the palm oils and. Then you've got the salty cheese. There's, a purulent combination. That just works well, that's incredible. Let, me get out of the wrapper. So we can see the whole thing again, it's just like a toasted, bun bananas, I think there's no cheese oh yeah there's cheese on the bottom here okay there is cheese as well down there, but. Then a bunch of the fruit a bunch of the fried bananas add, some chilli sauce to this it's. Just a mandatory.
They're Doing good final holds. Together better the, same ingredients just, wrapped. In bread, crispy. Thin bread take, note of this sandwich this could be the next big sandwich. You. Saw happen. It's such a good combination those. Like palm like shavings, tukufu for, sweet banana the salty fries you, could wrap that into anything in it tastes good. Oh. God. They're. So friendly here they're so nice that, was such, a delicious like. A sandwich. Amazon sandwich, snack. Okay, we got to move now. One. Of the main fish that they have in this region from the Amazon, from the river is, a comeback, II fish I'd, some, pretty good-sized, fish it's so meaty. Very, few bones we're gonna buy one of the fish here and then we're gonna go into a local village we're just gonna buy a fish because we're not totally sure what they'll have but. We're just gonna buy a fish here to bring with us. How, many chemo is it like like. I feel poor, kilobyte there. We. Made it to the boat pier, into. The river this is where we're gonna take a boat into the village. It's. Beautiful. The color of the water I guess this is so do naked oh just the black river but. It is like it's, almost like coffee, colored, water it's not like muddy water but that's the actual color of the water it looks like coffee. We. Just stopped by a local home we're just seeing if they're home if they're available if they can cook. Some food for us. Beautiful. And the boat ride to get here was fantastic. The trees, the just like variety, and diversity of, trees it's, just like about maybe like one kilometer, from the, city, though so I don't know how authentic, it will be and then. They said they might do a little dancing so I'm not sure if it will be a little bit touristy, but anyways, it's going to be fun it's going to be a learning experience it's, going to be it's, just beautiful, here to. Back. Here is, school. They even have a football field, and. Then these are some of the homes, some of the houses. The. Monkey is a little bit playful jumping.

A that's a family fish. One. More beverage that you just made this one is the, fermented. Fermented. Yuca or or, cassava I believe. Wow. Well. That is sour slightly, alcoholic, tasting, but I think just just, slightly fermented mmm. That's nice. I'm. Sure they cut the slits into, the fish and this is a very local fish just from the river, like right, outside of their house probably Janicki from the name of the fish gotta try some of this. Maybe.

Like fruity, fruitiness. And, mash this around. And. I believe that this, is where cassava, originates, this is native, to here oh this is for sure we're gonna find the best cassava in the world pretty much all starches are cassava, in. Different shape and form if you can hear I'm not sure if you can hear in that in the background but literally like just, on the on. The river like just 100 meters in a way there's a party. A party boat going you can even hear the music from here but this is just a village. Of an amazing, humble. Family, and. This, is what's, amazing, about this experience is that were, like. We came out and we. Didn't really even announce we didn't even know what we were gonna do but so, this is just like completely.
The. Way they would eat like, nothing extra, is added it's just exactly, the way with IOT and and and, the food like, the, flavors, are not. Complex, it's just the, land the, food the, abundance, of the Amazon in the ingredients. Just is, what is the, highlights and, then just this special time they didn't hang out and eat with the family is spectacular. It's, it's amazing you really this. Has turned into something, beautiful. They're. Gonna do a little performance for us I'm not sure where they normally do the performance. That. Was beautiful. And I love how this, is not a remote village they are literally like a kilometer, from the city and again, you can even hear the boats the party boats but what's amazing about this village is that they're preserving, their cultural traditions and, so I was just asking them about the the paint on their on their bodies and they do that every now and then it lasts for about 15 days and. They then. It's its ritual, its religious. Its cultural. But, it's it's cool to see them as there and there I mean even one of the girls has braces so I mean it's not it's not a remote village but it's cool how they are preserving, their traditions. And their culture here. Surprised. Us with a turtle, I'm. Not sure. Now. He just gave it to me so I'm just carrying a turtle around oh it's for to show mica turtle. In. A lot of years. But.

Natural this is an energy drink yeah. Oh. Oh, that's, what I need all the monkeys drinking from the same gourd. There's. Still some ants floating on it. This. Is the next one the other one. Yeah. Slowly sourdough stays amazing with cassava, chips, in. Here. Good. They're, fast - yeah. And. After, football swim, the kids are amazing they're like literally climbing, up the, entire polo shirt here he comes. Yeah. I'm definitely not brave enough for the tree, but. I got to I got to get in.

Peacefulness, of this village and I have to be honest with you when we set out today we, honestly, didn't really have a full plan we were just gonna try to find a village come, to learn, about the, Amazon culture, and and like. It's. Just turned into something spectacular, one, of the most memorable, days that, I've had, ever and, on this trip to Brazil, and if you think about that the food was great it was such a learning experience the, drinks, were fascinating, but it was the people it was the family it was the father and mother it was all of the kids that, made it just next-level.
