  • Hi, my name is Simon. We're in Yama-chan in Nagoya.

  • And Imma gonna eat every f****** chicken in this house.

  • Yeah, I'm gonna eat all that chicken.

  • I'm gonna put in my mouth and eat it all.

  • I'm gonna... Maybe I'll have five wings.

  • Obviously, I'm not going to eat every chicken here, but this place is famous for chicken wings.

  • It's got other stuff on the menu. Don't even look at the other stuff on the menu.

  • Only get a ridiculous pile of chicken wings. We ordered fifty for the two of us.

  • I'm pretty sure I'm just gonna eat 50 by myself. Actually no. That's not nice.

  • I'll eat 49 by myself and give one to my loving wife.

  • So as mentioned before, we are at Yama-Chan. But what we didn't mention is that

  • this is a chain birthed out of the loins of Nagoya.

  • It is a Nagoya restaurant. Nagoya chain and it's actually in Tokyo now.

  • But we wanted to have it from the mother source. Is that a phrase? S: The Motherland. M: The Motherland?

  • The mother source? The source? From the source!

  • And here we have our plate of 50 chicken wings.

  • You know what's funny? When I ordered 50 chicken wings, the waiter was like: oh, are you sure?

  • And I almost smacked him in front of everyone.

  • How dare you doubt my chicken wing-eating ability?

  • Don't you know where I'm from? I'm from pickering. Not that it's relevant to chicken wing eating...

  • But I just love chicken wings. And not only did I get all these chicken wings to eat

  • I also got this adorable cocktail like, oh my god, it's got sprinkles and whipped cream on it like oh.

  • It's delicious. It tastes like eggnog and birthday cakes!

  • Ok, how do I do this?

  • Well, you want me to show you? M: Yeah S: Okay.

  • So you ripped off the edge. Now you put that in your mouth and you put your teeth into it

  • and then you just pull it away from your teeth.

  • Yeah, and pull it away.

  • Yeah, pull.

  • M: How did that just happen? S: That's how u eat chicken wings!

  • M: My whole life I've been like *cute munching noise* S: No no! S: And then I will open it and be like *nomnomnom*

  • M: Are you serious right now? S: Yes. M: This has changed my entire life.

  • Why have I not been doing this earlier? Are you serious right now? S: It's magic.

  • What else do you know? What other secrets haven't you told me yet?

  • *Gasps*

  • So while I felt originally like North America was like THE place to go for chicken wings. You go to like a pub or a bar

  • and sometimes they have like 50 different flavors. Like spicy ones, like even hotter and hotter and like death and suicide.

  • There's only two kinds available here, and you should only order one kind. Which is the original one.

  • Now these wings are so popular that people online are always trying to find a copycat recipe, but here's the secret.

  • They actually fry their wings ahead of time in like a lower heat and then

  • afterwards they put it into like a high heat to crisp it up.

  • And then afterwards they add the sauce, and the salt and pepper on top of that. And that's how you get the incredible

  • crunchy, crispy texture of this amazing chicken. It's not battered. It's not covered in anything. It's not saucy, but its moist

  • and so

  • crispy. It's like everything you want in a perfect chicken wing. Oh my god ah.

  • This is for science, of course.

  • I can't believe I didn't know how you do it

  • S: Okay confession time. M: Why are you laughing?

  • Martina seems a little despondent now because I told her that

  • actually I learned this technique here last time we were here.

  • For some reason you didn't do it.

  • But the instructions about how to eat the chicken wings

  • are right here at the bottom.

  • S: You didn't see that? M: I saw them, but I did not understand them.

  • You see, break it, put it in your damn mouth and you got the bones.

  • M: I didn't understand how you could pick one. S: How did you not understand?

  • Because you just put it in your mouth and it's like, shazam the bones are there? S: Gurl.

  • You're supposed to share it with me.

  • You watched me eat 75 chicken wings last time wrong and you didn't say anything?

  • Well because we were with friends, and I don't wanna be like. Hey dummy,

  • here's how you eat chicken wings. M: You should've~

  • I love you gurl.

  • So there are two distinct flavors that these chicken wings have. Within the first 10 minutes when you're like eating ravenously,

  • the flavors of moist chicken. The burn of the pepper and the saltiness and the seasoning is just wonderful.

  • But after 10 minutes, as soon as you start to get a little bit full then the second flavor comes up,

  • and that's the regret for ordering too many chicken wings. M: Oh, ducky.

  • I'm starting to really feel full now, but I won't give up. Mama didn't raise a quitter.

  • Let me just console myself with some of my pretty drink.

  • It's just whipped cream. That's gross. Why did I do that?

  • M: You know why you did that? S: Why?

  • It's part of my strategy to fatten you up! Cause I'm not full. These are mineee.

  • You're going down. You think you can beat me? Or you've got more things to say.

  • I'm sorry nothing to see here. This is all for me.

  • Hold on, I have an observation I want to make.

  • This is a super challenging video to shoot one when it's just the two of us because

  • you can't hold the camera after you eat these wings.

  • So you'll be like, oh I'm sorry. I'm eating. You hold the camera.

  • So we keep on seeing who can get their fingers the dirtiest and then the other person

  • has to hold the camera. Martina's got clean hands now, so that means that I get to eat.

  • Back off, back off.

  • In the wilderness, the male and female must fight for their food.

  • Only one last chicken wing remaining. They will rely on their wit and skills to defeat the other.

  • Let's leave it to Twitter. Okay. We're going to put out a Twitter poll, and we'll see what the results are.

  • Name us an animal. We're having a drawing showdown.

  • S: The 10th answer, we're going to pick. M: Yup, okay ready? S: Go!

  • Here it is. Alright, 1, 2

  • 3 4 5

  • 6

  • 7 8

  • 9. Oh my God. S: Last one!

  • M: Rabbit. S: Rabbit. Who is that? M: Meg.E.

  • It's a rabbit drawing showdown and the best rabbit is going to get the last chicken wing. IT'S ON!

  • Armed only with a napkin and pen,

  • they will have a drawing showdown.

  • Who will win this epic battle?

  • First to 10 votes wins.

  • Alright here we go.

  • M: One. Two points. S: One

  • M: Three. S: Two.

  • M: Four five six seven.

  • Eight, nine!

  • Noooooo~

  • Oh dear.

  • His poor drawing skills have left him defeated.

  • Perhaps next time his luck will change.

  • I like how the waiter was so confused. He was like, are you sure? 50? And I was like

  • You don't know that we're fat.

  • M: You didn't know that? Did you look at me? S: You didn't know that we're fat? Do these clothes hide it?

  • Awwwwwww yeaaaaaaaah.

  • That was

  • S: amazing. M: You conquered the mountain. S: If you are in Nagoya or anywhere else in Japan

  • and you find a yama-chan, make sure you go there and try it out.

  • Eat all the freaking chicken wings and nothing but the chicken wings

  • because they're amazing. I hope you like this food adventure program for awesome people.

  • I'm going to go pass out now and sleep for 32 hours.

  • Booyakasha

Hi, my name is Simon. We're in Yama-chan in Nagoya.
