  • Hey guys, how's it going with?

  • My name is Michaela and today I'd like to talk about a very, very basic, one of the most basic foods that you can find in japan Rigas.

  • That's right.

  • Japanese, oni gt Japanese on a video or a very traditional snack and a great source of energy for when you're on the go and you don't have time to actually sit down and eat.

  • A common misconception.

  • Is that Tony G is also sushi while on a giddy is also rice, seaweed and then filling.

  • It is actually not sushi.

  • The difference between new guinea and sushi is the type of rice.

  • Sushi is vinegar, add rice and veggies is playing or salted rice.

  • Energy can be found in convenience stores and supermarkets.

  • And there are even specialty shops that specialize in selling um only only get like different types of really, really special and delicious on me.

  • I don't know, I've never gone but they exist.

  • But I found as a foreigner when I first came to Japan, there were two major challenges that I faced when buying japanese.

  • One GT.

  • One of the first problems that I had was that I could not, for the life of me read or understand what these kanji were.

  • So I had no idea what was inside.

  • The only G some Moneghetti especially non traditional types will have photos on the cover so it's easier to understand.

  • But more often than not, the traditional types of owning GDR, just words on a package.

  • So if you don't know what's inside, it can be kind of difficult to buy them.

  • The second problem I had was that I had no idea how to open these.

  • If you don't know what you're doing and you don't know how to open and only getting, it can be a very, very frustrating experience in order to preserve the freshness and the crunchiness of the seaweed.

  • This package has been specially designed to keep the rice and the seaweed separated until you open and eat it.

  • Therefore, it can be a little bit tricky to open.

  • Um, but I will walk you through it right now.

  • So hopefully by the time you have your first owning, you will be The Level one Master Pro of Owning Giddy.

  • Not that there's a test or certification or anything, but you know there might be one day and when there is the master it will, it will be, this is one of the very basic or is this what is c chicken mayonnaise?

  • She, chicken mayonnaise.

  • See chicken is the name for tuna flakes in japan.

  • So see chicken mayonnaise is tuna flakes and mayonnaise sounds simple right now let's learn how to open it, although it's marked in kanji.

  • You can see that there is a one, two and the three labeled on the energy package.

  • First.

  • We're gonna start by pulling down number one.

  • Yeah and it's gonna go all the way back now we're left with two and three.

  • And these are really simple.

  • You just have to pull and there we have it.

  • A nice crisp crunchy on the rice ball.

  • This is c chicken and mayonnaise on E.

  • G.

  • Not bad right?

  • It's mostly rice and seaweed with a little bit of filling on the inside.

  • Next we have key issue non coal by the only country that you really need to remember here is this one which means you can more or less expected it's going to be salty and sour.

  • So you can see on the inside of this one it's kind of like a jam, it's very sour and salty and I didn't really like it at first but I really find that eating Yuma in the summer helps beat summer fatigue.

  • It stops you from getting really, really tired and worn out.

  • Next we have Hidaka kombu and the important kanji to remember here is these two kombu which means kelp Hidaka is a place in Hokkaido I believe.

  • So the filling in this only GT will be kelp.

  • Let's take a look if you can see.

  • But there's definitely some seaweed action going on up in here and it's very soft and chewy and it has a very sweet taste.

  • I would say the sauce gives it a very sweet saucy taste.

  • If you're into that you don't want to eat fish.

  • This might be a good choice for you.

  • Next we have Karachi to Ghana and Takata is something that I've always had trouble explaining to my Canadian friends because we don't eat it in Canada.

  • But um, the, if you look it up online, it says it's mustard leaf, but it's just a very, it's a very leafy vegetables similar to other leafy vegetables.

  • And they use it a lot in cooking here in japan.

  • Karachi is another really common kanji that you should probably learn because it means spicy.

  • Any type of food that starts with karachi is probably gonna be a little bit spicy.

  • So you can see it is a little bit leafy.

  • I would say it has the consistency of spinach, but it is spicy, it's a little bit more spicy than you would expect.

  • This one is called Benny zack and this is usually written either as Benny zaki or socket and this is salmon fish flakes.

  • This is also very, very common and not too frightening to eat and this is what it looks like on the inside salmon flakes.

  • Cool.

  • And finally one of the more common ones, especially here in kyushu is karachi.

  • It's not conjuring and karachi meant cycle and men.

  • Tyco is a type of fish, eggs and it's very popular especially here in Fukuoka.

  • I've actually made a video about it before.

  • In the past, it looks very similar to the salmon one, but this one definitely has more of a fishy, definitive fishy taste and a little bit of a bike because it is spicy, but it's really good.

  • So these are some of the basic types of traditional japanese, only kitty, but aside from that, depending on the season and depending on what's popular, you might find other types of owning giddy available for limited times as well, such as pork and kimchi on injury.

  • This one is packaged, it already comes wrapped in seaweed so you don't need to figure out how to open it.

  • Yaki Saki Karami, which is one of my favorites.

  • It's usually a whole kind of hard to me seven inside the only, giving not the flakes, but like an entire piece of fish.

  • So as I mentioned before on a giddy are a great source of energy and not only that, but they're really cheap.

  • I know that when I first came to Japan and I was living on a budget, it was really hard to eat food, eat good food, traditional japanese food on the cheap.

  • You will usually find them costing between 100 to 200 and this one's 120.

  • 130.

  • And so a dollar 30.

  • And when you have school and you have work, when you don't have a lot of time to sit down and eat, only get, he can be a lifesaver, so don't be afraid to be adventurous and have fun.

  • Let me know what your favorite on the media is.

  • Down in the comments and I will talk to you soon, yep, bye.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, yeah.

Hey guys, how's it going with?
