  • Hey guys! This is my new friend Anisha!

  • She has a channel called Rickshawali

  • I will link it down below so go check her out, she's really funny and awesome!!

  • And she's here in Japan, for the first time

  • We had lots of fun in Harajuku earlier

  • And she hasn't really tried much Japanese food, right?

  • No

  • How long have you been here?

  • About 9 days

  • 9 days, okay

  • Have you seen an onigiri before?

  • Is that the rice thing?

  • Yep it's a rice ball

  • I guess the English would be rice ball, even though it's not a ball

  • Why is it called a ball?

  • It's not a ball, it's a rice triangle

  • Well that's interesting

  • Now, do you know how to open this?

  • I will just do it, I will just do it

  • NO STOP IT NO

  • There's a certain way to do it

  • So if you look at the package, there's a number 1 up at the top here

  • This? It's written in Japanese how am I supposed to read that

  • Right there right there, the number 1

  • Haha I'm like "I can't read Japanese!"

  • Just ignore the letters

  • So pull the #1 down like this

  • Oh wow!!

  • And make sure you do it nicely so it goes all the way to the back

  • Omg this is so cool!

  • Pull it all the way back? Okay

  • Yeah you're doing good!

  • That's so convenient!

  • And then you've got two corners left

  • So take the #2 on this side

  • and just pull it off

  • Oh god that's literally like magic

  • Niiiice

  • That's awesome wow!

  • And the other side

  • Okay

  • There you go!

  • Hey that's cool!

  • So the point of the package is so that it keeps the seaweed separate from the rice

  • So that the seaweed doesn't get mushy

  • NO WAY.

  • So now you've got a fresh dry piece of seaweed on the rice

  • So now you can kind of like curve it around and cover it up

  • Wow that is so smart

  • So you can get all different kinds of fillings in onigiri

  • This is the most typical one, it's called "tsuna mayo"

  • tsuna mayo

  • Yeah so its tuna and mayonnaise

  • In there!?

  • Yeah

  • Ooo....

  • I've never had tuna and mayonnaise

  • Really!?

  • Because I'm hungry...

  • We're so hungry right now

  • Very hungry, we haven't eaten the entire day

  • Since breakfast

  • Is this like the best thing you've ever had?

  • SO GOOD.

  • No... Well...

  • I have to say, I'm not a seaweed person

  • Right

  • Cuz it has a little fishy taste

  • It tastes very simple, I can't taste it

  • If you get to the middle, there'll be more tuna

  • It's not very flavourful

  • Yeah, that's why I like the tuna one because it's really subtle

  • Like if you're new to onigiri, and you're kinda worried and don't want a super fishy one

  • I'd say go for the tuna mayo

  • It's a flavour that Americans would be used to

  • I'm from India where we have crazy spices, everything is spicy

  • it has amazing, not amazing, but like crazy explosions of flavours

  • So this is like really subtle to you?

  • So this is like, whoa where is the flavour

  • I'm half, well not half but

  • I grew up in Germany and I'm living in India now

  • So I have the understanding of flavours like this

  • But from an Indian point of view this is like, where is the flavour??

  • It has no flavour in it

  • But it's actually nice

  • I feel with Japanese food there's a combination

  • There's really subtle stuff like onigiri, and then sometimes you'll get really salty stuff

  • Which actually we're gonna try next

  • So maybe you'll wanna save some of your onigiri

  • Oh is it?

  • You're gonna want something to eat with this I think

  • What is that? I just read Family Mart

  • All of these things I bought from Family Mart

  • Family Mart is the name of the convenience store

  • What...

  • Oh my goodness

  • Do you know what it is?

  • Let me put this down for a sec

  • Can you tell what it is by looking at it?

  • Oh hell

  • She's worried

  • This looks like a brain of something

  • It totally does

  • I'm not that mean

  • You're not giving me a brain Sharla?

  • No brain, I promise

  • You're feeding me like a guest?

  • It's actually fruit

  • It's a fruit!?

  • Can you tell what it is?

  • There's water in it too

  • It's pickled

  • It's a pickled plum

  • A pickled plum?

  • Ok you know those weird Indian candies that you gave us today?

  • They reminded me of this

  • Oh really?

  • I'm curious to see if you'll like the flavour

  • I have a question, people go into the store and buy one plum?

  • Yeah and the eat it!

  • It's common to get this, and some rice and eat it with the rice

  • Because this is really salty

  • and really flavourful

  • and you're gonna want something bland to go with it

  • Ok so you don't eat it alone like a snack on the road

  • I don't, I definitely don't. I like it with rice

  • But I'm sure there are people that do

  • Ok all right

  • You don't want this all over your pants

  • You're gonna smell bad

  • It doesn't get out of my pants? Oh god

  • Do I take it with my hands?

  • Yeah why not

  • There should be a pit in the middle

  • It's very mushy, it's like I'm doing surgery right now

  • It's the heart of the patient

  • It totally looks like a heart

  • It looks like a heart!

  • So do I put the entire thing in?

  • No just take a little bit, I feel like the flavour is gonna be really strong

  • Just take a little bite out of it

  • See what you think

  • No?

  • Does it remind you of those candies though?

  • A little

  • Hajmola, in India we have something very famous called Hajmola

  • It's a digestive pill, you should try it

  • (No you shouldn't try it!!)

  • It's actually nice!

  • It's weird... like the first bite you take is so sour

  • And then it turns into a very interesting... like nice

  • The aftertaste becomes very soothing, not soothing but

  • Like now I feel like eating it again

  • Refreshing kind of?

  • Yeah! I really like it

  • It's very strange

  • I wanna eat it, I'm taking very little bites because it's sour

  • I like sour things

  • Yeah if you like sour stuff you'll definitely like it

  • I like it, I really do

  • The first one was crazy

  • After that it was fine, I really like it

  • This is one of the things that foreigners don't like

  • Like one of the Japanese foods that foreigners are like, why do they eat thisss

  • So here's the thing, I'm not really American

  • Like I know Indian food

  • So you're used to really flavourful stuff

  • And we use a sweet and sour taste

  • This is like a sweet and sour, so

  • Yeah I like this

  • Enjoy your rice ball
