  • [S] There are a few pleasures in life, as comforting as holding something warm

  • in your hands when you're outside on a cold day.

  • In Japan the best way for us to do this is with steamed buns.

  • And today, we're going to show you a lot of them.

  • [M] And this one right now is really cute.

  • It's like a special edition bun and I really freaked out when I walked into the store.

  • [S] Get on your bike you cute girl!

  • [M] We picked a special day to film, ducky!

  • [S] The special edition bun wasn't even part of our filming schedule.

  • It wasn't part of our plan [M] It's just amazing guys!

  • [S] We saw it, so we just figured: "You know what, let's just show you guys."

  • [M] We're just gonna show you. [S] Okay.

  • So, this right here is a little chicken bun, which I thought might be a chicken,

  • I'm not too sure. It's got an upside-down heart, and then it has like a really shrivelly penis on there, on top.

  • So... [M] Mine is ...(?) [S] You got the wrong one!

  • Where is your's? Your's is in the other one.

  • [M] Probably should have done more research on this.

  • [S] We should've!

  • [M] We did, we're like "I want dat chicken bun!"

  • Shaped like a chicken, I'm getting that chicken bun!

  • And then everyone's like, "What are those things?"

  • We're like, "Uhhh..."

  • [S] Do you see that little steam coming through

  • [M] Oh wow

  • [S] Marshmallow bread-y magic on the outside, steam

  • So you got the little glossy texture, doesn't stick to your fingers.

  • Inside filled with sweet onions and meat and gravy.

  • [M] Chicken on the inside is super flavorful. [S] Mmm [M] This tastes like a chicken stew.

  • They took a chicken stew [S] Oh my god [M] chopped it up and poured it inside.

  • Normally in North America if you bought anything this cheap the meat would be

  • quite either bouncy or gristly

  • [S] Yeah

  • [M] But this meat tastes like actual chicken meat.

  • If you're coming to Japan and you've made yourself an itinerary

  • and that itinerary does not include visiting a convenience store, you need to schedule it back in.

  • [S] I saw somebody's itinerary recently. They wanted two hours in Shibuya crossing, dude

  • It's a crosswalk. You got two stop lights, and then you're through.

  • You don't need to be there for two hours.

  • But you do need [M] Is to eat convenience store buns [S] Is to eat convenience store buns [M] for two hours

  • [S] I just realized the problem with steamed buns is that you eat them so quickly and then your hands get cold again

  • I think the only solution to this is more steamed buns

  • [M] I have to agree with you, but I have no idea how you chewed that so fast.

  • [S] This was my first meal of the day girl.

  • It's 2:32 and I've been awake since 9, and I ate nothing!

  • This is love ladies and gentlemen. I have to feed my big boy.

  • [S] *quacks*

  • [M] He breaks chairs. [S] I gotta work out today

  • Mm well that was delightful. Let's go to another store!

  • [M] Pizza man~ When you're not sure what time of day it is it's always time for

  • Pizzaaa mann~

  • This is basically a Japanese hot pocket

  • It's got cheese and meat and tomato sauce and it has been stuffed lovingly inside of this orange, steamed bun

  • which looks a lot like a pizza pocket. I think it was probably a year and a half ago that our friend said

  • "Oh have you ever had a thing called, like, a pizza man?"

  • And we're like, "What's that?" and we went to a convenience store. [S] I thought he was trying to be Jamaican

  • He's like hey you ever have a pizza man [M] Like pizza man and we're like why [S] You're from North Carolina?

  • Why are you even trying that?

  • [M] Not sure Lawson's is my favourite already because there's no cheese component in here.

  • [S] Where's the cheese at Lawson

  • This just tastes like [M] tomato sauce [S] spaghetti sauce

  • [M] that's been stuffed inside of a bun. Not my favourite one. [S] Where's the pizza?

  • Where's the meat at? Where's the cheese at?

  • You're missing very many components of a pizza. [M] This should be called tomato sauce bun.

  • [S] Saucy bun.

  • [M] I gave it a 2 out of 5 because the sauce-y one is actually good

  • [S] This is super frustrating we went to another 7-eleven in which they

  • had these amazing curry cheese ones that we wanted to try out.

  • They had them on display and they're like,

  • "Yeah, no no we can't sell those right now."

  • And I'm not sure if they were just supposed to be display models or whatnot, but the whole thing was full!

  • And they couldn't sell us any!

  • So we're at another 7-eleven, but they don't have the cheese curry ones here.

  • But they do have more pizza man though~

  • Let's go try some pizza mans~

  • [M] This pizza man already looks so much cheesier, I'm gonna go in and have a bite.

  • Hmm okay, tastes like a hot pocket was stuffed inside a fluffy piece of bread Simon.

  • [S] That half is mine. [M] Oh...

  • Please don't eat my cheese. Please don't eat my I would give this four to five Pizza mans. Ducky, you gotta try it, okay

  • I could already tell this one looks significantly better than the last one

  • Are you serious right now

  • This is the best pizza pocket I've had in my life

  • That's amazing. This is why you have to go try different convenience stores. Let's go try some more

  • So we stopped at the mini stop to see what their bun selection was like this is the me cumin

  • Which is just plain old brown meat. Oh?

  • Yes

  • Mercy

  • Look at that ah this is what I'm talking about you feel the warmth in your fingertips the steam rise-- Martina didn't even wait!

  • By the time simon finishes talking and eating I still won't be done in time

  • That's not true at all make it seem as if I rush my eating

  • You have like a really super sweet white onion flavor

  • [M] And then you have the pork. [S] If I could just rip off a little pieces of this and dip this into a soup this bread

  • will absorb anything

  • [S] Why do we only order like one and split half of each? [M] Because we're about to eat like nine of them altogether

  • Our last video is of a restaurant. That's $600 a person and you're telling me. We got to split these dollar buns. between the

  • the two of us? [M] Do you know why? It's because we've spent 600 dollars on dinner ;A; This is our life, $1 dollar buns.

  • This is a special edition, ooh

  • So this is the purin one. They have a pudding inside here. I've no idea no idea, but it's gonna whirring hot

  • I'm really nervous that that's gonna be like explosive lava

  • I'm not even sure if we should rip this open

  • Japanese people died eating a scalding hot purin. You want to rip this open and see what it looks like inside?

  • Yeah, yes, we are gonna do it Oh?

  • God oh

  • Boy, oh boy. Oh gosh. Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh boy? Oh?

  • Gosh I am excited for this one. This is a sweet one. Okay, if it's filled with pudding

  • It's gonna be sweet majority of them are savory M: this is different on top as well. It's got a little chocolate on top

  • It's got a bit of a jelly bite to it. Okay, no that was gross

  • I want to do a video about things that make me happy. This is not something that makes me happy. It's not bad

  • I just think that the purin on the inside tastes like a beautiful warm pudding and then the texture of the bun

  • Tastes more like a sweet, bun, and you don't really want the two to like come together

  • Is it terrible? terrible no

  • but

  • Obviously it's not that bad

  • I'll eat anything

  • I'm hungry. I'll eat anything right now. I bend down and pick up an insect. There's the McDonalds right there

  • I'm willing to finish this video and McDonalds. I'm so hungry. This splitting of half-bun bullshit

  • Got one more bunsie for you to split with me

  • Oh boy no no

  • The ministop pizzamaaaaan!!

  • That looks good alright. I was skeptical at first because it's it's a lot puffier than the other buns.

  • Yes, this one doesn't have as much stuffing as a 7-eleven definitely doesn't but has got more cheese than the Lawson's one

  • Okay, let's find out okay here we go

  • Hmm it needs more filling mm-hmm

  • I think this one is definitely seasoned better mm-hmm

  • Than the 7-eleven one but they skimp way too much on the stuffing not enough pizza pocket

  • [S[This is like in Christmas time [M] Will he eat anything folks? [S] I'll eat anything. [M] Yes, he will. I did that to see if you ate it

  • He ate it all right

  • The paper on the back is not edible so don't eat the paper bit Simon

  • Can't believe you ate that. I literally ground up that bun put it in your mouth, and you were like mm-kay

  • A giant white foreigner was seen running around crazy in the parking lot of a mini stop in Kichijoji police were called and they said

  • apparently he was just hungry

  • I guess they had it, so we saw another 7-eleven along the way and we decided to check if they had the cheese curry one and

  • [S] Here's one for you [M] Oh my god it says curry on it, so cuuuute!!

  • one for me

  • Why did we get one each is this

  • what happens when I let you go in? [S] You know why? Now I can actually feel my hands getting warm. The whole

  • point of this, [M] let me take your crotch bag, [S] this is a cold day and these warm up your hands very nicely

  • hahahaha, oh

  • Oh boy this may be why it's sold out everywhere look at this

  • This one right here looks like the granddaddy of them all I think I know why they were sold out everywhere because it smells amazing

  • If you guys have seen our Coco curry video. You'll know that Japan is really big on curry. It's not the Indian curry you're thinking

  • It's not Indonesian. It's not like you know it's their own

  • Curry, and it looks like it's cheddar and vanilla and vanilla vanilla cheese vanillan cheddar!

  • No, it's nice cheddar-mozarella rolling dope-ass cheese son. This is some dope-ass cheese

  • Okay, that's why it's always sold out

  • This is the best one we had all day mm-hmm, but has those flavors that you get with like a dark beef

  • Curry instead of it being like a sweeter pork taste, and they have big chunks of onions in here

  • It's not spicy at all. Oh, it's so nice, and you can see the thinness ratio

  • This is what we were saying that the other place definitely has to say I think 7-eleven gets the stuffing ratio right

  • We didn't go to a Family Mart

  • Which we were supposed to go to like all the different chains. Simon's bike batteries almost gone. Okay, you know

  • I don't want to like actually like bike like a like a like a like a farmer

  • All those farmers on their bikes

  • Battery to guide my fat ass from convenience store to convenience store

  • So I can eat more buns, aint got no battery that means bun video's over

  • Our video is not over

  • We would be remiss if we did this whole video on steamed buns and ignored Family Mart

  • What are we are we quitters are we quitters?

  • We are thorough in our research here, so this one right here is a cheese dakgalkbi man

  • I which is a Korean thing this tastes somewhat legitimately accurate it has like the gochujang taste to it

  • It's got the cabbage to you know it shredded chicken in a way mm-hmm. It's good. It. Just doesn't taste like dakgalbi

  • The bun doesn't match it at all and there is nothing sweet about dakgalbi

  • What I will say is that that was a very stuffed, bun. Yeah you opened it up and

  • Just all the way through

  • Family Mart is very thorough with their stuffing so far

  • Boy oh gosh

  • That's an unfair tear

  • This didn't tear as evenly I was hoping it would be this last pizza bun

  • I don't think it's fair for you to have all that cheese

  • So I think it's only fair for me to have all that cheese. No, that's not fair either

  • I'm gonna try to reform the pizza bun together. What and

  • Chemisty pinch it. Are you sure oh gosh all right from the get-go this already looks a little bit, too

  • Saucy it does my opinion. Let's try it out

  • That's the best cheese out of any of the pizza buns this really tastes like a pizza pocket

  • yeah more so than the other ones day, but it's definitely not as meaty as the other one

  • It's just tomato sauce and cheese

  • What's your first place the best pizza bun in a convenience store is?

  • Without a doubt that was the winner winner chicken dinner. There is a tiny dog prancing across the street. It's a little reindeer

  • I'm wearing the tiny child oh

  • And he's wearing a tiny little sweater that goes to his ankles like like when you cover a horse our videos should be called Simon

  • And Martina and go to Japan and get distracted by cute dogs my new year's resolution for 2018 is to pet more dogs

  • That's a pretty good one. You know what you're doing pretty good

  • I've been way too timid my approaching of dogs yes

  • 2018 new year new me I'm gonna pet more dogs. [M] every dog you see [S] Not every, but I'm gonna pet more. That's it

  • It's our first video for the new year for 2018
