  • so i'm back with another food tour this time we're  in daikon yama so daikon yama is just outside of  

  • shibuya station in fact if you wanted to you  can walk here but there's also a train daikon  

  • yama station and what a lot of people don't  know is that it has some of the best hidden  

  • food gems in all of tokyo and i'm going to take  you on a personal tour around this area and if  

  • you've ever been to daikon yama then you know  just right behind me is tea site which is one  

  • of the most popular spots that people go to  here in daikon yama there's a bunch of stores  

  • here there's a style bookstore and there's  even a starbucks which makes it a perfect  

  • place to chill but since it's the most popular  spot then a lot of people come here so there's  

  • not a lot of hidden food spots so instead i'm  gonna take you on a tour through this whole  

  • daikonyama station area and show you my hidden  food spots but before i start like always if you

  • daikon yum is a residential area with  a unique blend of style and culture  

  • popular among celebrities and locals alike for its  trendy cafes gourmet foods fashion and artsy shops  

  • and unlike shibuya and ibisu express trains  don't stop at daikon yama station so there's  

  • a lot less foot traffic here helping to create  its laid-back vibe kind of my speed these days  

  • number one tempura moto yoshi emo this  tempura soft cream specialty shop is  

  • one of the hottest spots in daikon yama right  now it opened last year by a high-end tempura  

  • restaurant in minami aoyama moto yoshi it's  located right by the station and offers an  

  • amazing salt soft cream paired withjapanese sweet potato tempura called  

  • shiosoft mataju and it's finished off withsprinkling of bamboo charcoal salt and tempura  

  • flakes the word mataju itself is from a secret  language used only by tempura chefs meaning  

  • sweet potato i guess the secret's out now so  look at this beautiful creation this is just  

  • made right on the spot so this is freshly fried  in tempura so you should eat the tempura fried a  

  • sweet potato right away or it gets too cold you  want it to still be crispy take a bite of this

  • that is a nice fried sweet potato you  can also see that there's some tempura  

  • flakes right there just to make it extra crispy  

  • the salt soft cream has a perfect  amount of saltiness to complement the  

  • sticky sweetness of the tempura fried sweet  potato it pairs so well with that ice cream

  • number two meet yazawa black cows this shop is  a crazy popular steak and hamburger restaurant  

  • originally from the gotanda area they only  offer 100 real deal purouge wangu beef and  

  • it's served to perfection damn my mouth is  watering already oh okay take the mask off  

  • look at that comes in like a premium box  packaging what's interesting about this place  

  • is that they not only have burgers but they  also have these bento box where you can get  

  • steaks or like hamburg which is  pretty awesome oh that smells so good

  • look at that bacon egg burger  and it is premium vlog you

  • the bacon you have a super nice  vlog you like a bite of this

  • oh that's so good i gotta take a second bite that  has prim written all over it you have the wagyu  

  • a5 hamburger that's so tender and then when you  take that first bite you notice that the bun  

  • itself is lightly toasted so it has like a crispy  texture to it bacon itself is tender it's not  

  • like super super crispy like it's really really  meaty you can see the barbecue sauce coming out  

  • the back they're kind of like special mayonnaise  onions and relish pairs so well with a crispy bun  

  • when you order it it takes about 10 to 15  minutes because they make it on the spot it is  

  • ultra fresh and what's also interesting  about this place is depending on the day

  • so it must be good for you right so this is your  organic and vegan surprise for this video this is  

  • tatsage supposed to be fried chicken but it's  actually using some soy meat but in fact that's  

  • the only thing that's not organic in here  but everything else is organic and vegan  

  • it has the donut top to it nice and fried  let me just try to kill this right now  

  • for a vegan creation that's not bad first of  all the tatsu again itself is pretty nice and  

  • crispy definitely is not chicken but it almost  tastes like chicken look at that you can almost  

  • see like the little striations in the meat  it's heavily doused in like a teriyaki sauce  

  • this white sauce right here it's kind of like  a like a sourness to it pretty simple but done  

  • pretty well and it's all vegan um i think  the winner is the bun here like the donut  

  • bun is really really nice one thing about  this shop is that they not only have fast  

  • food but they also have kind of like a lot  of desserts so you can get not only kind of  

  • like a tatsuya or teriyaki chicken or something  like that you can get some sweets here as well  

  • now that we have our organic and vegan  fix let's move on to the next spot

  • and number eight surprise nippon this modern style  

  • onigiri sandwich shop is  produced by a food designer

  • it even uses a special machine to create the  better bryce used to craft the sandwich-like  

  • sushi rolls at the shop known to many japanese  as onigirazu but the shop calls them omusando  

  • i am so excited for this one surprise  surprise i've got a big piece of meat from  

  • surprise these are thick pieces of beef katsu look  at that you can see it's still a little bit rare  

  • on the inside but crispy on the outside they fried  it right when i ordered it they're using ishigaki  

  • beef and this is like this right here is beef  cuts but let me just take a bite real quick  

  • wow this sings to my inner soul that is literally  so beautiful oh it's nice and tender and look  

  • at that you have the seaweed wrapping everything  around with rice so you got two pieces of  

  • ishigaki beef katsu and you have their tonkatsu  sauce in here which is a little bit sweet but like  

  • the winner winner right now is this beef just  a little bit you can still see the meat juices  

  • coming from it oh that's beautiful i love the  crunchiness also of the lettuce you know the  

  • shredded lettuce in there it gives it a nice  texture i love just the fact that the red meat  

  • itself in here the center of the meat it's not  too oily which makes it just a pleasure to eat  

  • and what i love about it the most is that it's  cooked perfectly you don't get it too uncooked you  

  • don't get it like overcooked it's just prepared  how it should be nice and crispy on the outside  

  • in a center juicy inside this place also has  some other healthier options like this one  

  • is just straight like the kimchi namuru basically  you have all of like the pickled vegetables you  

  • have like a spicy kimchi in here and it's just  right on top of an egg on the leaf it's very  

  • similar to shisha and look it doesn't it's leaking  right now you can see it's a dripping of all of
