  • it's seven o'clock in the morning  and we're at yurije morning market  

  • just outside of sendai we're about  to have one hell of a breakfast  

  • ah the smell of barbecues grilling the fresh  sierra breeze and the bustle of the morning  

  • crowds keeping you on your toes you just  can't beat a good old japanese morning market  

  • particularly the ones in the coastline such as  this yuri again morning market 30 minutes outside  

  • of sendai and today we've come here to grab some  breakfast as we wander through the market stalls  

  • and see what we can buy on a budget of  2 000 yen about 20 but how far will it  

  • go well joining us to find out and destroy  my breakfast is a veteran of the market and  

  • without a doubt the world's worst chef it is of  course ryotaro and here he is with my 2000 yen  

  • good morning everyone yeah here's your 2 000 it  is my 2000 and let's see what we can get with  

  • this 2 000. 2 000 yen about 20 what can you  get in a japanese morning market quite a lot  

  • i guess when it comes to morning market in japan  you can buy pretty much anything this market we're  

  • right on the pacific coastline right now and  it was destroyed by the tsunami right in 2011.  

  • yes um it was once but it got renewed and  reopened a few years after and since then  

  • actually it's becoming more and more popular oh  it's certainly pretty damn busy this morning and  

  • so for ryotaro this is your kind of local market  i guess right it is the closest morning market to  

  • sendai city yeah i've never actually been here  though somehow i couldn't believe that you said  

  • that i guess it's because it's like a train ride  away and i'm just too lazy now you have a car  

  • i do have a car yeah and i've got 2000 yen so  let's go and see what we can do with it what you  

  • can get and what i can get and he's gonna get some  [ __ ] come on i'm gonna get some good come on

  • our first stop of the morning is the most popular  stand in the entire market and ryotaro's favourite  

  • sri gyoza boiled gyoza filled with juicy pork and  shrimp and tot with kimchi so now i've got two  

  • thousand yen in front of me and this is my first  dish i'm going to buy and this costs 500 yen i  

  • have 2 000. out of 2 000 quite a lot of money this  is really the worst that's why people are killing  

  • because it's worth it are you worth it i'm  totally worth it one of the greatest challenges is  

  • covering the juicy gyoza in as much of the free  kimchi as you can carry look at that technique

  • so with a kimchi like a jenga so the plain jenga  you need to be very tactful to be able to pick

  • the dumpling loving the sound effects oh  

  • wow the juice coming out of the dumpling just the  pork shrimp i feel everything you feel everything  

  • i feel everything that's what i'm saying  well ryotaro has kicked off his breakfast  

  • with a savory dish for my first dish something  sweet and covered with sprinkles has caught my  

  • eye there's only one thing i've come to this  market for what is it for choco banana gosh  

  • i knew that choco banana we came all the way to  the morning market and this is the first thing  

  • that he spent out of those 2000 yen healthy though  kick off your day with a banana you get all your  

  • vitamin b 12 your zinc your copper nylon it is  good what they've done is they get a banana they  

  • put it in chocolate cover it in sprinkles it's  pretty complex but the flavors are just so rich  

  • nine out of ten best 250 yen you could possibly  spend the perfect start to your day choco banana

  • i don't think so

  • so right next to the choco banana stand  is the second best stand in the market  

  • fried chicken chicken carriage what do you reckon  you started off with like chocolate banana right  

  • and now we are coming for the fried chicken right  yeah and i think we are here for grilling fish  

  • and shrimps and all the good stuff shrimp or  fried chicken what's better i think we all  

  • know the answer to that they've got all sorts  of flavors this fried chicken they've got like  

  • fried chicken with burdock uh  they've got like korean style spicy  

  • uh fried chicken they've got like a salt  flavor and they've got miso flavor and garlic  

  • seaweed flavor and that's what i'm going to  order oh it smells so good so much garlic  

  • garlic oil chicken perfect first chocolate  banana second karaoke chicken you're the bag  

  • it's been sprinkled with seaweed and garlic and  garlic go on them you can have the first taste  

  • because i'm nice is it good very  good the wind's just blowing shut  

  • mmm it's got a nice garlic taste to it right  it does it's good karaoke fried chicken  

  • is nice and juicy in the middle with this one  it's juicy it's got a nice garlic undertone to it  

  • do you feel the seaweed though i do feel the  seaweed do i feel the seaweed exactly so out  

  • of the scale of one to ten what would you give  this one for i'll give it an eight because it's  

  • very flavorful it's very juicy but the bat is  not that crispy because they've marinated it  

  • in lots of garlic i think i like how i'll get  that kind of breaks apart it's crispy explodes  

  • so i'll give it a nice you get lower score than  banana or a what have i become so you can see all  

  • these people here doing barbecues fresh seafood  they've just bought a lot of these japanese  

  • morning markets you can actually get your own  grill for free you go and buy everything you want  

  • to eat bring it back to your grill and barbecue  away only downside for us today of course is that  

  • ryotaro is our chef so if you come to somewhere  like this make sure you bring somebody who's good

  • so we are now looking for fish that we should  be able to grill this is what we're going to get  

  • looks i don't know what it is but it doesn't  look overly good tuna gill gill scenic dill

  • so this is the first thing i'm  going to grill over the stove

  • to accompany his somewhat grizzly tuna gill  ryotaro decides to snap up a barbecue set  

  • for a thousand yen a ready-made selection of  fish and meat but scallops sausages shrimp  

  • basically just anything that  starts with the letter eggs

  • that's it i've spent two thousandyear and this is what i've got kitty  

  • it's quite a lot for 20 dollars  i guess with the dumpling  

  • uh and all that and what have you  got fried chicken chicken and banana

  • what a [ __ ] show this is good money for money  though how much was this the fish uh what this  

  • fish is a big one 500 yen and all of this 1500  yen 1 500 yen for a good decent barbecue just  

  • make sure if you do spend that money on this nice  decadent platter of fish they'd have the world's  

  • worst chef cooking it that is blacker than the  chocolate banana that i saw earlier look at that  

  • how hard can it be to cook with sausage again  it's called a well done that's what it is  

  • 1100 yen left of my budget while wandering around  the market we spot an absolute bargain a delicious  

  • assortment of dishes inspired by the cuisine of  kyushu and okinawa good god it's over a thousand  

  • yen you get three bowls different types of dishes  it's almost too much today i've already eaten  

  • ryotaro's dodgy barbecue i'm feeling rather  full but yeah well you want to get all three  

  • you're gonna help you're gonna help me eat it  yeah all right how much have we got right now  

  • a thousand yen thumbs on 100 yen  but will i have enough money left  

  • over for another chocolate banana i don't  think so 250 and you've got 100 yen left  

  • how are we going to carry all this  back through three different balls

  • the real challenge walking through  this bustling market with a tray of  

  • three bowls well a video game

  • so what do we got really well done for carrying  the tray through the market that was a spectacular  

  • one to itself it's like a mario like a mario like  a mario okay here we go okay so we've got like  

  • okinawa okinawa soup noodle uh with um the sperry  pork the okinawa noodle is the the broth is based  

  • on the bonito and it's a clear soup bonito fish  bonitos fish yeah yeah it's a clear soup that's  

  • what's the the the difference between the  others and this one i think that looks the  

  • best although this beef here looks pretty  spectacular yeah and this is a beet bowl  

  • beef bowl marinated with like onions in  the soy sauce and it's kind of a little bit  

  • sweet and the last one last one is um this  might be something that you might not find

  • intestine interesting intestine of beef well  that's for you that one how long are the other two  

  • very umami flavor how would you describe umami  i you know what i think of all the videos we've  

  • made we've never described what umami is and  it's another scent they've like another taste  

  • isn't it all the taste buds yeah japanese  what is it going to explain it it's a amino  

  • acid they call it amino acid yeah explain it in  a way that's good realtor it's got that kind of  

  • moorish savory salty flavour we have a bite  of something and you feel like you want more  

  • addiction i think we're both too tired  it's too early to describe what umami  

  • flavour is so i'll put a description here  below somewhere and that will uh vindicate  

  • me with my crap description well i finished  my soup i'm going to dig into the beef bowl

  • give it here you've already you've  already burnt off my breakfast  

  • i'm going to eat the dish that's good what'd  you give the dishes then one to ten i would  

  • give this uh a nine actually this is one of the  best i've had in a long time same score as banana  

  • chocolate i'm gonna have to revise my chocolate  banana score i'm gonna give that a six because i  

  • feel like it's it's it's misshapen it's distorted  all the other reviews today and ryotaro is gonna  

  • hold it against me so i'm revising my score tosix foot chocolate okay so this is annoying okay  

  • now and that i'll give it an eight okay it's  really good but this is just more addictive  

  • umami flavor when you use it mommy  forever you think that you were just  

  • you know giving the right like judge  what does that mean what does that mean  

  • i'm gonna get absolutely torn apart in  the comments from people going you went

  • now this strawberry milk is very much not for  peasants because it's extremely expensive how  

  • much was it 700 yen 700 yen for this strawberry  milk but it's made from strawberries that cost  

  • about 20 dollars per strawberry from the nearby  ichigo strawberry world which is a couple of  

  • kilometers that way which we actually featured  in an episode on japan back in february uh about  

  • japan's 200 billion dollar disaster but in that  video we met people who had recovered from the  

  • tsunami and heard their stories and ichigo world  fascinating place the farms in that region just  

  • south of here were completely destroyed but they  started a strawberry farm that went on to produce
