  • Can you guys see this? Yes you can.

  • I'm wearing my onigiri earrings today.

  • Today's the day!

  • I am excited because I'm going directly to an onigiri shop, so...

  • We've wanted to go to this shop for months.

  • Yup, we're gonna see what it's all about.

  • I'm wearing my new hat. - I like it, girl, yeah

  • It's Build A Ladder

  • I think I have allergies.

  • Uh-oh, you're allergic to the summer heat

  • I hate this, it's October 5th!

  • Why is it still 30 degrees in Japan?

  • Global warming - Don't like that global warming, dude

  • One of our least favorite stations

  • Super busy all the time

  • Shinjuku Station has been under construction

  • for the whole 4 years that we've been living here

  • I hate the station and it's the worst station.

  • I'm always lost

  • I always get stuck in a mall whenever-

  • I sincerely hope that we get to do a video soon

  • where we're like please redeem -

  • I need to learn how to navigate this place.

  • I'm still lost. - Luckily, we're doing something pretty easy.

  • We're hitting the JR line, the Yamanote Line,

  • there's like a circle loop that kind of goes around.

  • That one's real easy.

  • It's a really inaccessible station.

  • I'm standing beside what looks like

  • the only elevator I've ever seen.

  • Somehow you always end up going up stairs constantly.

  • Yeah, it's the worst.

  • You guys don't know, it's easier to say things into your-

  • phone with Japanese Siri (to phone: "onigiri bongo")

  • That's right I said "onigiri bongo" into my phone

  • This is where we're going!

  • We're walking around this little curve-ma-bob,

  • and then we're just going straight ahead,

  • and just hanging a left in the main intersection.

  • [In American accent] When you come to America, you should go to Sizzler.

  • [In American accent] We've got 2 for $18 steak plates,

  • [In American accent] pssst, corn on the side, pssst, and beans.

  • I don't think they have beans, but you know what I'm doing?

  • There's a Sizzler commercial - That's all those commercials, they're just...

  • Yeah, they're always like "upgrade to sodas and stuff".

  • I don't remember them very well anymore, obviously, but...

  • That's pretty terrible

  • Yep

  • I'm about to wait in line for onigiri. It's a big-boy line for me to handle

  • But we have to commit, we have to commit to the line!

  • That's the rule of Japan: good places have lines,

  • and on the weekends, they are like tripled.

  • So we're gonna wait it out,

  • and you and I are gonna think about

  • what of 50 toppings we're gonna have,

  • so that when we get in there, we don't panic okay?

  • They have like so many different toppings like

  • It's very unusual the kind they have like they have curry,

  • and they have like buta kimchi, like they have cheese

  • so you can make and mix toppings,

  • but you can also go traditional so-

  • This is going to be so good. - Yup.

  • [Whispering] I should've had a snack!

  • Alright, I had a half pear for breakfast,

  • what did you have Simon? - I had nothing!

  • I had a gulp of water,

  • some black coffee. We can do this.

  • We're gonna smash some ramen after this!

  • Geez Louise! Hey, "We can do this".

  • I've had tons of things that we've handled it.

  • We can play a game,

  • or we could just turn off the camera, listen to music and

  • cry to ourselves for the next 25 minutes

  • What do you think, music?

  • [Singing] How could I live-

  • What do we do while we wait in line

  • instead of talking to each other?

  • We look at menus and pictures of the food

  • that we're about to eat online.

  • Yes, so I can see the menu in advance

  • Yeah Top 10. So it's salmon

  • and they've got egg. This is like a juicy egg.

  • Nama tarako (roe), and so they've got combos, right?

  • So this is niku soboro and this is ...

  • I mean you got to plan out y'all

  • Yeah, look at this lineup literally gotten worse.

  • You need to know what you're gonna-

  • You need to know what you want.

  • Okay, I have a confession to make.

  • I've been very scared to tell you how excited I am about

  • this, because onigiri is

  • like one of my all-time favorite Japanese foods

  • and I'm just scared that I'm gonna hype myself up

  • and then be like let down so I'm just

  • kind of being like "stay cool Martina"

  • like meeting celebrity food.

  • Look at all the happy faces around,

  • everyone who's eating one is grinning from ear to ear.

  • Alright, this is gonna be great, girl. This is your dream.

  • I know - This is your dream food.

  • I'm so excited - Okay!

  • Wow so many choices.

  • I definitely panicked because there's so many other things

  • that I would love to do here...

  • The kyarabuki looks so good

  • They have maguro kakuni (stewed tuna cubes)

  • The maguro kakuni looks really good and

  • you can get one with the sweetened ground meat.

  • Niku soboro. Oh, that looks so good.

  • I gotta just blow on this for 20 minutes

  • but I am so hungry. - Do it girl.

  • It's insanely hot

  • It's lava. It's magma.

  • A single onion touched my lip and began to sear

  • like salted caramel burns.

  • Are these ours? I think these are ours.

  • See there's your egg

  • Yes, thank you - Thank you so much!

  • This is the bacon cheese curry one, I think it might be

  • Coco Curry in a bite. Let's see.

  • This looks amazing.

  • Ducky, you've never had onigiri like this before

  • Can I have some? - Mhm!

  • Wow, it looks amazing!

  • It's chopped up perfectly

  • so that you can chew it easily with each bite

  • I was worried the bacon might be like a big strip

  • that would kind of fall out

  • but they've been thoughtful about it

  • Mine tastes like a TKG. - I wanna try yours

  • It's unbelievable. - Yours look so good. - I just need one more bire

  • Before I give it to you, because it's so good.

  • It's- it's like I wish I could have this every day.

  • I eat TKGs almost every day let's see how this tastes!

  • Right, I know. So good right?

  • That egg yolk, the saltiness of it.

  • It's like a butter almost. - This is amazing.

  • I can't believe somebody took something so casual

  • and has elevated it so much

  • Yeah, it's like having gourmet sandwiches

  • Mhm! - or going for gourmet onigiri

  • I have a lot of excitement for this one right here because

  • this is negitoro with shiso miso

  • which is pretty much, in the morning,

  • what I usually have is tuna with some green onions

  • and I put shiso miso in there.

  • We should mention that this is raw tuna

  • So it's like breakfast in a roll -

  • How does this taste compared to my breakfast?

  • Let's see.

  • Here we go! - Much, much better~

  • Where did they get their shiso miso?

  • This shiso miso's so much better than ours. Holy shit!

  • We shouldn't have rossed the road. Now, you're gonna be -

  • I have to ask them. This is great, great miso.

  • I don't think you can ask them...

  • Oh my god!

  • This is - guys, you have to come here

  • This is a really good mentaiko mayonnaise

  • So mentaiko are really really tiny fish eggs

  • They mix them with their own mayonnaise and

  • a little bit of like spicy hot pepper

  • like a seafood risotto. It's creamy...

  • It's got that fish taste but it's not like in-your-face fishy?

  • A shrimpy kind of light taste with mayo.

  • It's so, it's so good

  • Look at all the little dots of mentaiko in there. See all that?

  • Ah, this looks, all this rice is just glistening

  • Oh my god... - Was that delicious?

  • Right? Kimchi jjigae is my feeling.

  • When we put a little squirt of mayonnaise in our kimchi jiggae back in Korea?

  • Do you remember? It's like kimchi jjigae onigiri.

  • That's exactly it. Mayo inside your kim- that's brilliant - I know. I know.

  • Okay, guys, we're gonna get to eating more of these
