  • (upbeat techno music)

  • [Narrator] Meow

  • - What's up, cuties?

  • Today we're heading somewhere

  • you may be familiar with, Seven-Eleven.

  • A Seven-Eleven's in Taiwan are on a whole

  • nother level with their food.

  • Here are ten convenience store foods you will love.

  • Watch and see what I mean.

  • Alright, we're gonna start pretty basic

  • and right over here we have the tea eggs.

  • Tea eggs are basically a bunch of eggs just

  • boiling in delicious savory sauce.

  • Check this out.

  • Gosh, there all in there just boiling.

  • (rattling)

  • Woo, what we're going to do is

  • actually crack the tea egg open.

  • Check that out.

  • The sauce has browned and marbled the egg.

  • Beautiful.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Mmm, you can get one of these for 10NT

  • for breakfast, lunch, dinner,

  • in between all the meals, for midnight snack.

  • Just grab and go grab and go.

  • Now we're gonna head to the bun section

  • which is right across from the egg section.

  • As you can see we have a little container here.

  • This one is the spicy version

  • and I'm gonna try this flavor right here.

  • Let's open it up.

  • Woo, do you see that steam?

  • Oh my gosh, I love it.

  • Put it in this little packet here.

  • I'm gonna go head and rip this open

  • so you guys can see what's inside.

  • (upbeat music)

  • (twinkling music)

  • Oh.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Mmm.

  • I think this one has a few bamboo pieces,

  • that gives you a nice little crunch.

  • The bun really soaks in the juice of the meat.

  • Mmm.

  • Mmm.

  • (upbeat music)

  • I originally number three was going to be the hotdogs,

  • but Kevin was like oh the hotdogs are gross meh.

  • - [Kevin] It is, it's disgusting.

  • Well I personally, I like the hotdogs

  • because it's chicken hotdog isn't it?

  • It's not like in the States, when the hotdog's

  • kinda firm and it taste a little

  • bit plasticity with the skin.

  • This, when you chew into it, it's just soft.

  • Soft.

  • So, we're going to the other corner where

  • the tea egg was because right next to it

  • we have a variety of boiled dishes.

  • Usually it's quite filled.

  • Usually there's all types of topping.

  • I don't know what's going on here.

  • They need fill this up asap.

  • This is all the types of hot pot

  • related things you can get here.

  • Squidballs, we have corn, we have rice cake,

  • we have more squidballs with cheese in it, mushroom.

  • I mean it just a wide variety.

  • Love these tongs.

  • Oh my--

  • (beep)

  • Just like splashed on my face.

  • - [Kevin] Dude.

  • - Why?

  • (laughing)

  • You're craving some hot pot.

  • I mean just come to Seven-Eleven, right?

  • Look at these.

  • (upbeat music)

  • If you think this is it, no, no, no, okay?

  • You can add more so come on down here.

  • Right over here, you have two different types of noodles.

  • You can add to your little hot pot to go.

  • Here we have a thinner class vermicelli noodle.

  • And then here, we have Koshra Bien,

  • which is basically Ramen.

  • So, what you can do is you can unpack this

  • and throw it in here.

  • Throw some of that soup and you got a little noodle soup.

  • (upbeat music)

  • I'm gonna come over here to this eating station.

  • Look at this large fish cake.

  • It looks like a fish cake shrimp.

  • Oh, yum.

  • When you bite into it, there's like these little eggs

  • that pop when you chew it.

  • That's a pretty massive piece of Tofu.

  • The skin is kinda soggy and soft,

  • but inside, oh, it's a pillow.

  • It's delicious.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Right now, we're gonna go into one of my favorite sections,

  • here in Seven-Eleven, and that is the Bentel section.

  • (upbeat music)

  • There is quite a variety of stuff.

  • I mean, we have Curry.

  • We have Curry noodles.

  • We have pasta.

  • We have salad.

  • Is that Pesto pasta?

  • Oh my gosh, that's so crazy.

  • Here we have Mapo tofu with rice.

  • Like, what?

  • Is this a Chinese restaurant?

  • This is the gourmet Bentel.

  • This is the one I usually get.

  • Oh, the G pie.

  • So, it looks like it's chicken.

  • Filet with two veggies.

  • Some corn.

  • The other thing that you have to get here,

  • as well, and this is one of my favorite things,

  • are the cold noodles.

  • So, come, come, come.

  • When I was younger, there was a lot more variety,

  • but now a days, if you come in,

  • you'll probably just find the Seven-Eleven brand.

  • But today, we got lucky and there's this one.

  • - [Kevin] You hid it in the back.

  • - Yes.

  • When we came in here, we hid this one

  • so no one would take it.

  • This is Sthamen and it's so good.

  • It's basically peanut sauce with cold noodles.

  • It's just refreshing and delightful.

  • So we're gonna try these two things.

  • Let's go check it out.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Taste test.

  • Mm, chopstick unwrapping skills.

  • That's right.

  • Steaming.

  • (twinkling)

  • Oh, guys, I wish you could smell this

  • because it smells so good.

  • I love these glass noodles that

  • kinda stir-fry in with veggies.

  • Oh, mmm.

  • It's hot, hot.

  • Let's try this big piece of chicken.

  • Oh, the outer layer kinda reminds me of curry and chicken,

  • where it's a little bit saucy and soggier.

  • Oh, it's hot.

  • That was not good.

  • (laughing)

  • That was really dry.

  • Okay, so that piece was not good, okay?

  • We're gonna try the piece with the sauce on it

  • and the skin, maybe it gets a little bit better.

  • It's kinda a hit a miss sometimes, right?

  • (background noise)

  • Oh, it's so hot.

  • I think that piece was just particularly dry,

  • but this piece with the nice skin,

  • with the sesame, almost teriyaki sweet glaze sauce,

  • that's good.

  • You gotta eat it with the skin.

  • The rice is nice and fluffy.

  • It's not dry, as you would expect

  • from these microwaveable Bentels.

  • And the veggies are pretty nice.

  • It's actually got a crunch.

  • Mmm, mmm-hmm.

  • Right over here, we've got the sesame packet.

  • There's some little carrot on top.

  • This is the garlic and this is the soy sauce.

  • And all three goes into this cold noodle

  • to give it that nice coating of flavor.

  • We're gonna dump in the cucumber and the carrots.

  • Some of these cold noodle packages,

  • even have egg shreds on it.

  • And that's when you know

  • that's some Buzhy cool noodles.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Now you just mix it all up.

  • Just gotta jerk it off a little bit.

  • You know what I'm sayin'?

  • You know?

  • Kevin.

  • Make sure it's mixed up real good

  • because you want every bite to have that

  • sesame garlic goodness.

  • I can see that sauce just glossing these noods.

  • We're gonna take a big slurp,

  • as we always do on this channel.

  • Oh, I'm so excited.

  • (slurping)

  • Mmm, this is one of my favorites.

  • There's something about that light sesame sauce

  • paired with that soy sauce.

  • It's just wonderful.

  • And these noodles, they are cold, so when you slurp it,

  • it feels so good in your mouth.

  • (upbeat music)

  • In this section, we have these really popular rice balls,

  • or Onigearies.

  • And basically, what they are is seaweed wrapper

  • on the outside and inside there's different fillings.

  • But we're gonna try this one.

  • This is the Lowsong.

  • You're gonna find pork floss in a ton of Taiwanese food,

  • especially in porridge, in your breakfast rice balls.

  • Don't worry, I already paid for it okay?

  • They are now used to me

  • 'cuz I'm here filming and looking crazy.

  • There is actually steps you can follow.

  • So, you grab the one and you just rip down like that.

  • Oh.

  • You pull the two out.

  • Whoa, you guys.

  • So if you're exploring or traveling around Taipei,

  • just get one of these things on the go,

  • wherever you're heading, like a snack.

  • Can really fill you up.

  • Mmm.

  • Do you see that?

  • That pork floss filling?

  • The pork floss gives you almost

  • like this salty fishy flavor.

  • It really is a great On-the-Go snack.

  • When you come to Taiwan, and you're wondering

  • what kind of souvenir you should bring back,

  • you should bring back Taiwanese ramen.

  • And you think I'm joking, but I'm not.

  • Taiwanese ramen is so delicious.

  • There are particular brands that are especially good.

  • Um, but to be honest, most brands here at Seven-Eleven,

  • are the more popular ones.

  • A lot of these brands of beef noodle soup ramen,

  • they actually have actual beef pieces in packages.

  • And it's tender.

  • It's delicious, really.

  • Mini ones over here.

  • The one particular one that I like is this.

  • The chili beef flavor ramen.

  • Now we're gonna head over to the snack section.

  • Asian snacks, delicious.

  • Just come to Seven-Eleven,

  • buy a ton of Asian snacks for your friends,

  • and they're good.

  • They'll be so thankful.

  • Let me tell you what's good.

  • Guayguay.

  • These are like crispy potato balls.

  • There's different flavors.

  • Sometimes there's chocolate, there's their original flavor.

  • Let's see what they have here.

  • There's these sweet coconut.

  • And right over here, it's the five spice.

  • So, salty and sweet.

  • My favorite one though, is the chocolate one.
