  • Well good morning good morning.

  • Good morning good morning guys.

  • It is another early start for this jet lagged duo.

  • It is right now it is 4:52 in the morning and we've already been up for what an hour

  • and a half?

  • Since 2:30 am.

  • Oh, two thirty wow.

  • So it is an improvement.

  • We're doing better.

  • Yeah.

  • And we figured since we are up early let's go have some breakfast but not any breakfast.

  • This is going to be a traditional Japanese breakfast (伝統的な日本式朝食).

  • Yes, and we noticed a place when we were up jet lagged the previous morning it was open

  • 24 hours.

  • Yes.

  • It is a chain restaurant and we're going to go there and grab some traditional Japanese

  • breakfast (朝ごはん).

  • Let's go eat.

  • Let's do it.

  • Alright guys we are on our way to the restaurant.

  • Yes.

  • And it is so quiet there is hardly any traffic.

  • Nope.We've only seen a few bikers.

  • People on their bikes.

  • And taxi drivers.

  • One guy was randomly screaming before we left the apartment.

  • Yes.

  • And um yeah there may actually be more people having a hangover meal than a breakfast on

  • the way to work but um yeah we'll see.

  • Yeah I don't think there is very many people on their way to work yet.

  • Yes.

  • I haven't seen any suits.

  • It is ridiculously early so.

  • So just over my shoulder there is a whole bunch of people that are waiting for the metro

  • to open.

  • The metro in Osaka starts running at 5 am.

  • But the first train doesn't really arrive until like 5:20 or 5:30 so yeah there is a

  • whole bunch of people waiting to get in and the restaurant just so happens to be right

  • next to the metro station so very convenient.

  • You can grab a bite on your way to work.

  • And yeah let's go eat.

  • Okay okay so getting ready to place our order.

  • It doesn't like our bill.

  • There we go so we're getting 38 and we are getting 51 which is not available because

  • we don't have enough money.

  • Haha.

  • Oh!

  • That is hilarious.

  • Okay.

  • Okay so we just finished placing our order.

  • We got a little ticket from the machine.

  • And then we handed it the ticket to the server.

  • She ripped it in half.

  • We get to keep this.

  • Breakfast is here.

  • Wow!

  • (Speaking Japanese)

  • Okay.

  • Okay.

  • Wow.

  • It is here.

  • That was so fast.

  • That was insanely fast.

  • That was like a minute and a half I feel.

  • Haha.

  • Alright guys we like researching our meals in advance so we know what we should be ordering.

  • So for Japanese breakfast ( 日本の朝食) we did a little bit of research.

  • Yep.

  • To see what the typical dishes are.

  • And it usually includes steamed rice.

  • Right.

  • Check.

  • Miso soup.

  • Check.

  • A protein like grilled fish.

  • Check.

  • Check.

  • Um various side dishes.

  • Yes.

  • We've got some tofu going on.

  • We've got a raw egg.

  • This looks like some kind of porridge.

  • Um it says nori.

  • So a dry seasoned seaweed.

  • I'm seeing a little bit of that sprinkled on this thing.

  • There are some additional side dishes we might order too.

  • Yeah.

  • But this looks big enough.

  • It does.

  • I mean you can always go to the machine and order some individual little dishes.

  • Yeah.

  • If you want more rice or if you want more egg.

  • Um it also says Nattō (納豆) fermented soy beans.

  • And I did notice that on the menu.

  • We just didn't get the meal that comes with the soy beans.

  • I'll probably I'll see if I can order that later.

  • Fermented soy beans?

  • Yeah.

  • Maybe.

  • Good luck with that.

  • Haha.

  • Then something called Kobachi which is small side dishes consisting of vegetables.

  • Vegetables.

  • We didn't get too many vegetables today.

  • We've got some chives next to the tofu but I would say this is a really good start.

  • I think we got the main items of a Japanese breakfast (朝ごはん).

  • So let's dig in.

  • I'm hungry.

  • So Sam is going to dig in.

  • Yes so I got the makarel with soy sauce and ginger set.

  • Oh!

  • And that looks like a really nice piece of fish so I can't wait to try that.

  • I like how you're using the chopsticks.

  • Yes.

  • Not a fork and knife.

  • Yeah, why not right.

  • Take it for a big swim.

  • I think I'm going to grab a bit of rice with it.

  • Oh wow.

  • Mmmm.

  • Oh, the fish is so tender.

  • It just melts in your mouth.

  • And I love the soy ginger sauce too.

  • Mmmm.

  • Oh that is really good.

  • Nice to be having protein in the morning as well.

  • Okay so the rice it is just plain white rice.

  • Plain white rice.

  • So I'm going to move on to the miso soup.

  • I don't believe they have spoons so I'm just going to give it a stir.

  • Drink it out of the bowl.

  • Use the bowl.

  • Which is cool.

  • Like a little cup.

  • Oh I love miso soup.

  • It is so so tasty.

  • Ah, look at all of the seaweed that is in there.

  • I believe that is called nori in Japanese.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh it is really rich.

  • The worst thing when you have miso soup is when it is too watery.

  • And you're like craving more of the miso paste.

  • More flavour.

  • But they nailed it over here.

  • And then over here I have a feeling this could be silken tofu but it also could be egg.

  • I have no idea.

  • It doesn't look like egg.

  • I'm going to guess that is tofu.

  • Oh that is the ginger.

  • What?

  • Oh my gosh that is tofu woah laced in like a gingery sauce.

  • Oh.

  • I'm looking forward to trying that because I love ginger.

  • Woah that is really potent.

  • That was the ginger element we were looking for.

  • Oh and nice little surprise.

  • Wow.

  • It is going to be a great breakfast and super affordable too.

  • So yeah we'll order some more side dishes.

  • I also like how you are representing Peru right now.

  • I am.

  • In Japan.

  • Yo amo Peru.

  • Peru!

  • Haha.

  • Okay so it is now my turn.

  • I'm going to try the fish.

  • Mine doesn't break so easily so I think I'm going to bite into it.

  • Pick it up and bite right into it.

  • Mmmm.

  • How is it?

  • It does have bones.

  • Okay yeah mine does too.

  • But the meat is so tender.

  • Yeah super tender.

  • Is it if it is like mine does it melt in the mouth basically?

  • I think mine is the exact the exact same as yours I just get a half portion.

  • Oh right.

  • Because that was nice I just got a little bone in there.

  • Yep.

  • But mmm.

  • Really juicy.

  • Let's try the other stuff.

  • Some rice.

  • Got some rice.

  • Mmmm.

  • Now some of that miso.

  • I'm going to give it a little swirl.

  • We've got some seaweed.

  • We've got chives.

  • So yeah little swirl there.

  • Grab it like a little cup.

  • Mmmm.

  • Oh nice and salty.

  • I know.

  • That is good.

  • I love how salty it is.

  • It is rich.

  • They made sure to put in lots of the paste.

  • I actually like savoury food for breakfast (朝ごはん).

  • Yep.

  • I don't need jam and donuts.

  • I know me too.

  • I feel like it is a nice way to start the day yeah because you don't get like that sugar

  • high.

  • You are actually eating functional um proteins and carbs.

  • This I have no idea what it is.

  • Well try it.

  • It looks like a slimy.

  • Porridge.

  • Let's see.

  • Hmmm.

  • It kind of is a porridge.

  • With a bit of seaweed.

  • And then we have a raw egg but I don't really know what to do with it because I don't eat

  • raw eggs.

  • I think you're supposed to put it on top of the rice maybe.

  • But we'll think about that for later.

  • Oh I may leave that on the side.

  • I'm just not used to eating raw egg.

  • Maybe I don't know.

  • We'll think about it.

  • I'll break it so it looks like maybe I've had a little bit.

  • You know.

  • And we'll figure it out.

  • Maybe I'll dip my fish in there.

  • We've also got a rowdy little guy who is a bit hungover from last night.

  • So he is causing a bit of a scene at the restaurant.

  • But I think he has finally left.

  • Although he had placed an order for food so I don't know.

  • Maybe he'll be back.

  • Haha.

  • Um but yeah why don't we switch so I can try your ginger.

  • I'm really curious about your breakfast.

  • Sounds good.

  • So we found the missing ingredient.

  • Yeah it came with this little cup and we didn't bother opening it.

  • No.

  • And so it came with this sauce so I'm going to put it all over.

  • Yeah.

  • I have no idea what it is.

  • So it was a sealed cup with fermented bean paste.

  • Yeah.

  • And a little sauce.

  • Look at that.

  • Sam just added in.

  • Look at how sticky that is.

  • Check that out guys.

  • Woah hoah.

  • It looks a bit slimy.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • Woah.

  • So yeah Sam is going to try that.

  • Hmmm.

  • What do you think?

  • Oh wow.

  • It is really interesting.
