Watch Vice's FRESH OFF THE BOAT w/ EDDIE HUANG Part 2

Vice today presents Part Two of the latest episode of Fresh Off The Boat with Eddie Huang, which heads to Shanghai. In the episode, chef and New York Times bestselling author Eddie Huang explores the city with popular food writer Jenny Gao, drinks poop-infused coffee, throws down in a cook-off, and explores The Aftermath of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.

*Part Three will air on Monday, February 3rd.

Season Two takes viewers on a cavernous dive into cities around the world undergoing rapid transitions. In each episode, Eddie finds commonality through the universal language of food, using it as an entry point to reveal the struggles, and highlight the ingenuity, of people forced to reinvent their ways of life in the face of modern global capitalism - or vanish forever.

In the seven-episode season, Eddie shacks up with a tribe of nomadic camel herders in Mongolia; witnesses the shattered city of Detroit through the eyes of native son Danny Brown; joins a Pakistani Muslim cricket league in London; explores the lucrative panda export business in Chengdu, China; sidelines with city food cart workers in Shanghai; calls out the whitewashing of Brooklyn back home in New York; and embeds with local Muscovites with help from a Russian Youtube star and community of Kyrgyzstan immigrants.

Huang, a restaurateur, TV personality, provocateur, and former 2013 TED Fellow (who had his TED fellowship revoked for comparing the organization to a "Scientology summer camp"), described his vision behind Season Two as such:

"Season Two is about resistance. Resisting the rising force of global capitalism and forcing technology, government, and soft power to work for us once again. As it stands, we live in an oppressive global feudalism where the individual creates and lays its treasures up to the 1% with no other option but to live the life of a digital peasant. Although we have the luxury of watching Breaking Bad from a couch flanked by bowls of Shin Ramyun and Black Forest Gummy Bears, the fact of the matter is that we live in a feudal global economy with slightly better soma and Heisenberg with a hundred and ninety-six faces (countries in the world)."
