  • Mmm.

  • That salmon tastes like it took a deep swim in the hot pot!

  • So tender!

  • Very tender.

  • I could eat some more of that!

  • There's greens, let's see how it tastes.

  • Got to get the veggies!

  • Teeth sunk straight through that.

  • Is that spinach?

  • How did that taste?

  • I like how all the flavors have mixed and blended together.

  • The soup's flavor kind of seasons everything.

  • It just floats through the whole bowl!

  • Like grandma's stew.

  • I'm getting all those nutrients and vitamins.

  • So moist.

  • Let me taste that scallop.

  • I've never really tasted scallop before.

  • See what's that about.

  • Is it good?

  • I'm a mushroom type of guy.

  • How do you like that?

  • Pretty good.

  • I feel myself feeling stronger.

  • I know you thought it was a meatball.

  • I definitely thought it was a meatball.

  • But what does it taste like?

  • Fishcake?

  • Texture's definitely the same as a meatball.

  • Mild flavor.

  • Meaty texture.

  • Is this pork right here?

  • Once again that broth is really seasoning everything.

  • Chicken soup for the soul!

  • Tofu and mushrooms.

  • Whoa, that tofu is deep fried

  • Extra flavor?

  • You can tell the broth get's a lot of flavor from the Tofu.

  • I know everything tastes amazing.

  • That's due to the 17 ingredients that are in the pot!

  • 17?!

  • 17! Juu-nana!

  • Juu-nana!

  • Chanko's a favorite in the sumo world, but also across Japan.

  • It's getting kind of cold, so similar to grandma's stew, it warms you up.

  • Oh man.

  • Umai!

  • First bowl down, a lot more to go.

  • Let's dive in.

  • Healthy and nutritous!

  • Wholesome!

  • As you can see, the restaurant is sumo themed, but they actually have live events here weekly.

  • Performances take place right in the middle here, in the sumo ring.

  • This is kind of why the floor is set up theatre style,

  • so everyone can see the performance in the middle.

  • I just finished up with about round...6 now I think?!

  • Now it's time for the shime!

  • Finish him!

  • Like I told you before, Shime means the finisher.

  • For the shime, you can pick between zosui, which is rice, and udon noodles.

  • Today we ate Yoshiba's Chanko Nabe.

  • The price was 2,800 yen per person.

  • Normally when you get the full entertainment experience, it's really worth it.

  • Good vibes!

  • So we're going to finish up and meet you outside!

  • We just finished up inside.

  • One last message before we go.

  • This is our last video before the end of the year.

  • So we'll see you at the turn of the decade.

  • Stay safe my friends.

  • As the chanko taught us, eat good, nutritious, healthy and well-balanced.

  • I'll see you guys in 2020!

  • For the last time this year, this is King-chan and An-chan.

  • We definitely found something good to eat on these Japanese streets.

  • See you next year!
