  • This video is brought to you by Square space. In this video, I'm gonna explore with you some popular restaurants in Japan

  • So yes, yes I said that we're going to be exploring some popular restaurants in Japan

  • But like many of you I'm still here at home

  • What a lot of people don't know is that Japan has this Otoriyose gourmet food culture

  • Basically, it's a service where people can contact

  • Popular restaurants all throughout Japan and have those specialty foods delivered directly to their house

  • so in this video

  • I wanted to start exploring different places all throughout Japan of some very very

  • Popular places and bring them here and try it with you for the first time

  • But before I do that

  • Let me know by hitting that like button and I'll do more in the future, that all said and without further a do

  • Let's explore these new food places

  • Number 1: Nama Toro Roast Beef from Kanekichi

  • So, I couldn't start this video without going to one of the things I love the most

  • MEAT! and I looked at far and wide and I came across this place that has been serving beef since

  • 1921. Located in Shiga right below Biwa lake.

  • Kanekichi specializes in a Wagyu beef called Omi beef so what we actually ordered is Omi ushi toksun wafu

  • Toro naba roast beef the 'toro' part of it means that it's melting so hopefully it

  • Melts in our mouth and that nama part means that it's raw

  • So it says there's some roasted beef but the outside is roasted. But in fact the inside should still be raw

  • So basically this box comes with two different

  • Types of meat it comes with this red meat was actually thigh meat and it comes with Ichibo

  • Which is a really rare part of the cow.

  • In fact, there's only about 2 kilos worth of meat you can get from each cow. It's so rare

  • So when you get this, it arrives with a packet of ponzu, but they also recommend that you get some ginger soy sauce

  • Which they come through some ginger, also you can mix it with wasabi

  • Soy sauce and also some salt, so this is the Ichibo. It looks so good!

  • So let's try the ginger and the soy sauce first

  • Dippy dippy, who loves staying home during this time? I do!

  • Mmmmmmm!

  • So you can get a slight taste of that roast beef outer shell but what's more surprising is how

  • tender that meat is and because of that like marvelous you can taste all of the meat oils coming from them and just

  • melting in your mouth

  • I can see why this is so special and that you can only get in two kilograms worth of meat from each cow

  • Let's try this Akami. You can see here that it's less

  • so

  • Marble, but you can still see a little bit of the the marbling right there.*sings: baby I like it raw baby i like it raw~*

  • If any of you guys know that sorry I'm saying let me know the comments

  • That's amazing I can eat this all day

  • So the main difference between the Ichibo and the thigh meat is that with the Ichibo you really get a sense of

  • That marbled meat you get the kind of like the fat oils it just kind of like melts inside of your mouth

  • Whereas the Akami, the thigh meat, get kind of like a the more like a meat texture

  • They're so delicious and the same right?

  • But you just get a little bit like more of a meaty texture all together

  • And eating this is very similar to eating sashimi just with a different taste

  • And you can actually make Niku sushi out of this too

  • Wow, this is just the rice that we have at our home and you put the roast beef on top of it

  • Alright, let's dip it in

  • Well, the rice is breaking apart

  • Wow

  • That is beautiful with the rice as well

  • For some reason when you have the meat with a rice, it just brings out all of the flavors

  • All right. Let's move on to the next one decorate all of this right now

  • Number two: Zeitako cheesecake from Yamada Boroso.

  • So we just did something savory

  • And now I wanted to do something a little bit more sweet. Just so you know

  • We can round things out of it and I got a Japanese

  • cheesecake !

  • This is also from Shiga prefecture coming straight from a farm called 'Yamada Bokujo' this award-winning angelic cheesecake is limited lesson

  • less than 100 are made per day for nationwide distribution

  • It's made with 46% cream cheese

  • and the cream

  • Itself comes from a raw milk produced from the cows there

  • And let's take a first bite because I can't wait to eat it!

  • Wow, it just is so crumbly off the bat

  • You can definitely taste the cream cheese in it. Although it has this really thick texture

  • It's not as thick as I've had and some other cheesecakes

  • In fact, it's quite rich and light so you get a lot of this like cream cheese

  • Flavor to it and when you take a slice of it, you can see that it crumbles quite a bit

  • I thought I was gonna not be able to finish all of it

  • but I'm almost like a halfway through and it's pretty good

  • With some cheesecakes that are really really thick you can only have a few bites

  • But this is almost light enough where you can eat almost the whole thing, or at least I can eat the whole thing

  • It's that good

  • And at the bottom you have kind of like this cookie kind of crumble, but you can't really taste it so much

  • It's like the cream cheese and the milk taste is kind of like the main attraction here

  • Definitely worth ordering again. In fact, I might actually give this as a gift to someone

  • Right. Alright before I continue just want to give a quick shout out to Squarespace because of them

  • alright

  • Let's try the next food spot!

  • Number 3: Nikuman from Heichinrou

  • This steamed bun also known as Nikuman is coming straight from Yokohama

  • The shop's name is Heichinrou and it's one of the most popular and famous dim sum places in China Town

  • In fact, it has more than 130 years worth of history

  • so it actually came in a chilled bag in a package of three and

  • This is one of the lovely pieces that I was able to steam up just now

  • Let me just open this up

  • Look at that steam and you can already feel how soft and playful the outer bun is

  • Let's take a bite

  • Wow that's amazing. There's just so many textures without one bite

  • So the first thing you notice is how fluffy and moist

  • the outer bun is like it is like I'm telling you like it's just like super playful

  • It's a really really nice texture almost kind of like a sponge cake

  • It's not like super super sweet, but it's like it has like a sweetness to it

  • And the texture of the filling is quite unique like sometimes you get any Nikuman where it's just all me you get like the Meat juices and all of that

  • Whereas this one it kind of has like all the different ingredients of the onions, the bamboo, the shiitake mushrooms

  • And also the pork, it brings out all of the different textures and flavors in just one Nikuman

  • We literally just eat this bread alone. It's that good

  • And what's great about this is that the quality seems to be really

  • Preserved in the Otoriyose, a lot of the times when you go to take out, you know, you order stuff online

  • It doesn't travel so well, but the ones that we've like picked so far. They're really good

  • I think it really depends on the restaurant but a lot of Japanese restaurants that are highly ranked will have almost

  • dynein quality food that they serve or that they deliver to you

  • Number 4: White paris roll from Kiyokawaya

  • This roll cake is coming straight out of Yamagateken

  • From a place called Kiyokawaya

  • So this, is the white Paris roll

  • They have this white cream in the middle and you can see how white the cake is

  • They don't actually use egg yolk or butter to make the outer cake. Let's just take a bite of this man

  • I can already feel the moisture from the cake itself like coming off my hands

  • whoa

  • Wow, that cream is so milky

  • Hmm apparently they use a fresh milk in here

  • You taste the milk you definitely like the first thing is like this strong milk taste, which is really nice

  • hmm

  • It's not like a really smooth textured cream. You have a lot of texture to it

  • it almost kind of looks like we got the cheese or something where you get like kind of the fragments

  • And the cake itself is denser than I would have expected

  • Um, I was thinking to be like super super fluffy and light there's like a nice density to it

  • To be honest with you, it's good. It's like a nice cake

  • But it's almost like too light for me. I'd prefer like maybe a hamburger or something

  • Anyways, let's move on to the next one

  • Number 5: Tai chazuke ureshino from Wakaeya

  • This shop is in Oita Prefecture with history dating back more than

  • 300 years and today we're throwing down on the same dish that they served is Shogun back in the day

  • So we're not only traveling to new locations in Japan in this video, but we're traveling through time as well

  • So this next dish is Ochazuke specifically Tai chazuke

  • It comes in this really luxury style box and you open it, everything is packed and sealed

  • and there's actually three different portions that you get

  • Unlike the previous two dishes. We actually need to prepare it

  • all you have to do is take the typhus or sea bream and then put the sauce on top of it also called Tare in Japanese

  • It's kinda like a sweetSesame sauce and then you just make sure that you get all parts of the fish covered in the sesame sauce

  • Once you've done that you take the fish and you put it on a bed of rice

  • Then it comes to these little strips of seaweed. Which you sprinkle on top

  • And then finally you pour the tea into the bowl. Look at that. Wow

  • It's all kind of mixed there with a rice. Mmm. You can smell the sesame sauce in there. That looks so good

  • First thing, you taste the sesame sauce, but it's actually quite light

  • I was expecting it to be a little bit stronger based on like how thick that sauce was

  • But I think since it's mixed in with a tea, it's kind of soften that taste a little bit but the green tea itself

  • It's not really strong. It's like not that bitter. It's a very very light green tea

  • So it kind of combines really really well with the sesame sauce

  • But just to give yourself is usually just kind of like a rice soup dish made from tea generally very very light

  • Refreshing kind of like easy on the stomach, which is why a lot of Japanese people love it, but I don't know

  • I don't know if it's as good as the meat that we just had earlier but at the end of the day it's a pretty good meal

  • I think the price tag is based on the fact that it has like 300 years of history

  • This would be considered one of those like really

  • Really extravagant meals back in the day and the fact that you can still get this and like get it brought to your home

  • Is still pretty awesome
