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.
