  • Simon: One of the things we never really talk about

  • S: in our food videos is the B-Kyu gourmet

  • S: So today we're at Tokyo Tonteki and we're going to tell you what it's all about

  • ( music)

  • S: I'm so excited,

  • S: whenever I see a bowl of meat like that,

  • S: my nipples tingle a little bit :3c

  • S: I'm so ready for this.

  • Martina: B-kyu Gourmet refers to as B-Class gourmet food.

  • M: It doesn't mean that it's sad food or that it's like, low quality food.

  • M: It's simply ~B-Grade food~, like

  • S: It's not hoity-toity super expensive stuff,

  • S: Kinda like what we showed you in some of our other videos. (M: Hm)

  • S: This is hearty, (M: oh yeahhh) wholesome, delicious

  • S: AND affordable food

  • S: And there's a big movement in Japan

  • S: happening now for the B-kyu gourmet places (M: hm)

  • S: And Tokyo Tonteki is one of those places

  • S: Tonteki is actually a compound of two different words

  • S: Ton is for pork, teki is sutēki so steak

  • S: So Tonteki which is pork steak

  • S: It's a cute word, don't you think? I think its cute c:

  • S: Hey, remember where people ask us

  • S: to do videos about vegan food? Well...

  • S: Here's a giant piece of pork

  • S: I swear guys, one day we will do a vegan restaurant

  • S: I promise, but, I just want to talk about this pork today

  • (music)

  • M: So this is basically Japanese pan-fried pork chop but what makes this place really good, is they take their pork in advance

  • M: and they put it in a hot water inside of a bag

  • M: they sous vide it, and it makes it soft and tender, breaks down the fat

  • M: then they slice off a pork chop and they pan-fry it

  • M: in your individual pan

  • M: So it's tender and soft and not like an overcooked /chew toy/

  • M: which sometimes happens when you try to make pork chops at home

  • S: See this piece of pork? When have you seen a piece of pork

  • S: This soft? And this juicy?

  • S: Come on think about it. When your mama makes pork chops, how dry are those pork chops?

  • S: Look at this (M: mmm)

  • S: When you bite this juicy and dripping

  • M: What if your mom's a chef?

  • S: Most moms can't cook pork chops like this

  • M: What if your mom can?

  • S: Then why are you watching this video? Just eat your mom's pork chops

  • M: Now there are lots of different things on the menu

  • M: But the main thing that everyone orders is the ton-teki

  • M: You can choose between 200 grams, 300 grams

  • M: And 500 massive grams of meat

  • M: I went for 200 and Simon went for 300

  • M: Cause he's a big boy S: I'm a big boy I just had a workout

  • M: It does come out pretty quickly. And the turn around is pretty fast because there's almost always a line up here

  • M: So you can't really dilly dally. We're gonna try to make this video as fast as we humanly can

  • M: So that we don't get death stares from everybody next time we come in

  • S: Well we gotta hit that 10 minute mark in our YouTube videos. So let's just put pictures of cats in between

  • S: First thing they're going to give you is a miso soup

  • S: Whatever you do don't eat it for like 5 minutes or so

  • S: It's scalding hot

  • S: Not only is it scalding hot,

  • S: It's covered in a thin layer of fat

  • S: If you try to take a sip of it, it's gonna coat the entire roof of your mouth

  • S: And everything will taste like rubber for two weeks. So just be patient

  • M: Um S: It's worth the wait. It's got delicious little bits of pork in there

  • S: Look at that, even the miso soup has pork in there

  • M: Are you saying that because of my experience that I had the last time we came here?

  • (cue horrible flashback memory music)

  • S: Martina burnt her mouth last time

  • (horrible flashback memory music continues)

  • M: It was like... molten lava, guys S: Mhmm

  • M: It was just pure oil, coating my mouth S: Aww

  • (horrible flashback memory music intensifies)

  • S: The pork adds a sweetness to the miso soup...

  • S: a heartiness

  • S: This feels like it hits your heart

  • S: This is some good, warm food M: It literally hits your heart 'cause you're drinking

  • M: ...pork fat S: It's gonna hit your.. yep, this is your arteries

  • S: Is that? Is that love? Or is that (M: Or is that) a triple bypass (M: Wait) I'm feeling? M: ah, there it goes

  • M: Now here's how I like to eat mine

  • M: It comes in this really delicious sauce it's kind of like

  • M: a sweet sauce, almost like barbecue-y and has little tiny pieces of crispy garlic in it

  • M: Then they have this big kind of cabbage salad

  • M: You put a little bit of mayonnaise on top of it

  • M: and underneath it, surprise! There's bean sprouts

  • M: So, what I like to do is slowly take a bit of the sauce

  • M: and put it on top of my rice

  • M: And then I take a piece of pork and put that on top of that

  • M: And then once I finish eating that

  • M: The rice starts to absorb all the sauce

  • M: and by the end of your meal your entire rice bowl

  • M: is like a magical... sauce parade

  • M: Saucy!

  • M: What's happening right now? S: You're busy talking here

  • M: Shh, let go S: I need the protein, girl (M: let go)

  • M: Bad boy S: I should've got the 500 grams M: Let it go

  • M: Let go S: I should've got... I should've got M: No, eat a pickle

  • M: Eat a pickle S: Oh it's a pickle

  • S: So B-kyu gourmet doesn't just refer to steak

  • S: We're just showing you one kind of B-kyu gourmet

  • S: because yakisoba itself has considered B-kyu gourmet

  • S: good yakisoba that is

  • S: Good ramen is B-kyu gourmet

  • S: with one of our favourite B-kyu gourmet places
