Indeed, the YouTube vlogging industry has changed the lives of many content creators who gained popularity and influence. Not to mention, the online platform has also become a source of entertainment for various audiences, like fashionistas, shoppers, artists, foodies, and the like.
One of the coolest yet unique trends in YouTube videos is mukbang or meokbang. It is a unique dining concept where people consume massive amounts of food while filming or livestreaming themselves.
While most people may see mukbang videos as fun content, others are baffled by how these mukbang YouTubers manage to vicariously eat a heavy amount of food in a single sitting. The main purpose of mukbang is to introduce viewers to the specialties and culinary traditions of a certain region or country.
We don’t promote overeating, but if you are curious about satisfying foods in Thailand, here are some of the best Thai mukbangers you should binge watch.
