in this video I’m going to show you guys my top 10 street food in asakusa so right now we’re in Essex and right behind me is coming a team on and beyond that is not camisa which has lots of street food thing is I’ve already done a video here of my top 10 things to do which I’ll leave a link in the description below so we’re not gonna cover anything and nakamise it today but we’re gonna go to the back streets and it’s another hot day in Tokyo we just had a typhoon a few days ago and it’s starting to get really really hot again I don’t know what you guys are gonna do when you come here for the Olympics but everyone stay hydrated and bring a towel like me if you guys like my sushi girl shirts then definitely I’ll leave a link in description below and check it out alright let’s go do this and let me show you guys the back streets of a success oh and it’s so nice because I came here so early in the morning and there’s no one here well there’s not a lot of people here but it’s just so much better than when there’s so many people here and guess what guys Michael’s helping me out today so Nootka me say is as touristy as you can get a nostalgic street filled with lots of souvenirs street food and people but I wanted to do something a little different in this one and take you to some less travelled but amazing food shops which are hidden in the back streets of a Saxa all right let’s get our food on number ten yakitori from yasubei so if you guys are looking for a little yakitori spot that’s kind of out of the way then this is your place it’s so out of the way there’s not a lot of tourists here and all you’ll find is locals and the yakitori is a pretty inexpensive miss taffy are super friendly and even though they might not speak in perfect English you’ll get along just fine I can smell this Jackie do you think I can actually smell the smoke coming from the shop these are they give you an option of a salt or soy sauce but I got like a garlic a soy sauce and it smells so good think you have some Cassetti which is the neck meat I believe this is bone GD liver perhaps he maybe this justice energy mo I’m gonna try this SAT because that’s my favorite so I’m actually more of a fan of like putting this red pepper on it it’s called shichimi have a bite nothing pretty good Jackie Dodie I really like the sauce you can taste the garlic bits the bisetti in itself is that kind of like a fatty piece of a chicken and it’s cuz it’s like the neck part so a lot of the juices like kind of hold really well this one is like a little like batter as you can see mm-hmm mommy is intense in this arm so when you have a bite it’s still like a little tender and then you get like a little chewy texture nice girl that gets milk [Music] that is good it’s nothing beauty we don’t really um taste so much for the charcoal which is actually really good but a lot of x30 place has like a really strong charcoal smell since we’re doing a street food today you’re like standing up here and getting to show me a cookie but you can actually go inside that should have like a little plate like Carnegie veggie dishes for like two three hundred which is really really reasonable thing look how big this only Kitty is it’s as big as my head number nine think it’s much a gelato from Suzuki in Suzuki and is an old-school much a store and they’ve done a collaboration with Nana Yao and they make the biggest green tea gelato in this world at least that’s what they say but don’t worry they also have level one which is actually one of my favorites let’s go inside and check it out a green tea branch zucchini and has been in the game since 1848 and cola partner Nana is a matcha sweet factory in she’s oka to create the thickest matcha gelato they use a premium green tea from North Shizuka because using low-grade green tea creates a taste too bitter and strong all right guys check it out we have two different flavors just so you have number one which is like not wrong and this is supposed to be the strongest one which is like level seven all right so we’re gonna start with the lightest version it looks so good [Music] they can taste some matcha flavor it’s actually not as strong as just do regular matcha it’s not so strong it’s really light and you know I don’t really like strong matcha flavors for me this is kind of like what I prefer as opposed to happening something really really strong and I can’t be there much of but let’s check out the strong number seven look at the crazy texture and then it’s like they just pack as much much and as they can’t in this little gelato look how green that is amazing that is a much a shot super strong and bitter [Music] [Music] you know like the venue drink the 20 and it’s like the very last drip of tea the big Peter Peter Peter trip it’s like this Oh God premium version of that but I would definitely just try this one like when I order the cup like you or initially think that is this is like some sort of pottery but it’s actually plastic and then look around at all of these shops they’re all clothes and it’s crazy because I didn’t realize it’s Tuesday and on Tuesday this shoten guy is all closed well like not everything is closed but most of the stores just like look look at that it’s all closed behind me I really hope the place we’re going through is open right now and it’s open number eight fruit parfait from fruit parlor godo despite the modern interior of the shop it’s been in business since 1946 it started as a fruit store and the later became a fruit parlor in the 60s you can still purchase fruits here if you want but the main attraction is a perfectly designed parfaits that are more than instagram-worthy check it out I got the strawberry parfait and it even comes with a raspberry on top you can see the strawberries right they’re ice cream and then it has a strawberry ice cream and then you have whipped cream on top with fresh strawberries strawberries itself they’re from Yamagata brand is called summer tiara with a little bit of whipped cream so the strawberry itself is really nice because it’s sweet but it also has like this nice tardy appeal wakes up your mouth like right here it’s really just like a sweet like the other thing but there’s like a hint of tartness let’s dig into this [Music] I just love how fresh the fruit is and it goes so well with the strawberry and vanilla ice cream oh there’s like the strawberry sauce there’s jelly on the bottom you see it’s not just reach like a perfect sweetness it’s like a sauce that Massa strawberry and like the minuses meekness a little bit but only like has strawberries good taste or flavor inside oh yeah what is that Michael looks like a hotel number seven dango from Momotaro Momotaro is an uncie mean dango shop that most hers pass by but they’re simple but refine menu speaks for itself [Music] I know what you want Superman sure you ask are we sending Santa yeah look at that I got ya key down go this shop has actually been around since 1871 there’s actually a picture of the shop from 1871 right at the front display and you feel like you’re having like a bite of history right now what’s really popular just keep it down go and you’ve probably seen it in my other socks a video but I wanted to show you guys something a little bit different something savory instead of sweet you can smell that it’s been grilled you can definitely taste like the barbecue grilled flavor it’s actually still really really chewy but the texture itself is very much alike it’s very like sticky like I feel like I’m just like it’s all grabbing to the inside of my mouth so it’s actually a lot more salty than I was anticipating I like a sweeter mochi that just like really really melts and they do have a lot of like sweeter stuff here so definitely worth trying that but if you want to try something different with then try the Academical oh it smells so good it’s like if you guys know what meat that uh she done Lewis it’s gonna like the similar smell but like it’s like a little try your version right like mass oh cool bocce oh hey yeah if you really like salty Sango this is definitely it’s kind of like a chewer version of like show you press record number six cut up from you Cuddy oh yeah you Cuddy is my fried chicken spot in the socks up it’s juicy it’s savory and you can’t get it anywhere else well maybe it’s somewhere else but it’s just as so good and I wanted to share with you guys and they just introduced a spicy karaage and it’s super spicy and delicious look I got some hide shake it I just love fried chicken sorry I know some of you guys are vegan or don’t really like fried chicken but I have to share my top ten and I love fried chicken so this is the juicy Momo look I can just like feel the crunch I’m so delicious the meat juices right in there look at how good that looks pan is just so buttery soft but still the outer shell is so super crunchy and then look at that you can see like the red chili bits in there a lot better than normal and you can see the salt crystals that are on it too ready for this it has a nice kick to it I love it it’s like someone just turned up the level like turn up the volume and just Atlantis party and Paulo has a mouth this has so much flavor the chili pepper is just like kick in and look I’m sorry this wet maybe that’s just because it’s hot outside but definitely if you’re looking for some spicy fried chicken this is a spot sorry it’s so good I’m just got a second one number five onigiri from yeah dodoka when you go inside it looks so old school and I just love it and the owner is super friendly and helpful and what’s nice about the shop is they actually have seating inside let’s enjoy some funny kitty in the air-conditioning did you know the oldest onigiri shop in Tokyo was hidden just behind Sensoji their onigiri are made with selected rice from across Japan best suited for each season wrapped with Edo my serie famous for its rich flavor Wow look how fresh that looks he could smell the naughty look how nicely it’s been presented oh my god oh and the rice is still warm you can like reveal it I’m like how like that when he get is it’s like been naughty is still like stinging on just I could not wrap them fully and you could even see inside look the salmon roe [Music] hmm myself fluffy it’s like eating a heaven right now it’s like one of the freshest on you kiddies I’ve ever had you can still see the juice is right there the rice is good and I just love how it’s been marinated this so nicely and Sun brings out all of the flavors it’s all good oh and my co got her shiso pickles damn I still can’t get it right and just around the corner from yo Roku you’ll find this cute little pile shop number 410 entire key from shut up dude they got here before we did tenant needs natural yeah you might be thinking what the hell does that mean actually it’s just the way Japanese called this type of taiyaki made with an individual cast iron press learn most places these days use large iron griddles it requires a skilled artisan great tenant ioki but the results are a crispy and addictive Japanese knack for the winner for their own odor they secrete Adame check out that taiyaki there’s so many different tie a key places in a sixer but this place has a crispiest ones if you ever had a waffle cone it smells like that look [Music] last birth and the outer shell is really crispy the beans are still like pretty whole which is nice actually prefer this then like having it like really really mashed up and I enjoy that texture of having like the actual beam itself you know usually like I said you guys are know I’m not a what gushy person but this place has a pretty good tire so girls are supposed to eat from the down get in this side just like super crispy on the side like can you see like a little bit burnt I don’t usually like that yeah it was a lot of em were like sloppy and like a bread right but this is almost like credit they’re like a faint crusted waffle it’s so good I’m still getting key number three menchi-katsu from a sixer manche [Music] man she cut fresh off the fryer no Michael doesn’t like us so much because you think it’s too early but I just love coming to this place you can see the juices and look how juicy that is and it’s still hot my hand is almost burning fried to perfection it’s just so flavorful it’s actually probably just a lot sweeter than you would expect from a Mitchie katsu I think the onions will really really bring out the sweetness but man look at just how juicy this meat is number two nikka money from second in this shop behind me it has one of my favourite nikumans in all of Tokyo the bread is fantastic but that meat is even juicier I just love like coming behind me look at his knee come on it’s so hot actually almost burnt my hand when she gave it to me she’s like no no don’t touch it at the bottom because it’s so hot and it was she made me hold it like this because it was so hot to touch this finger it’s kind of hot but I’m excited open anyway well how you can just see all the meat juices right there it’s so moist it’s just coated the bread know how that looks so good that’s your piece like this has all the meat I gave her like that piece corn I’ll share it I’ll share it’s still so hot that the law whoa that’s a good knee c’mon the flavor it just pops it’s so juicy and tender the meat is just so delicious and moist like it’s very savory but you do get a little bit of sweetness but the meat itself it’s on point it’s a good combination of savory and sweet the bun itself it’s not too heavy it’s quite fluffy but also it’s not like two areas so you do feel like you’re getting a full meal I really love this newcomer okay so I actually have this before and it’s really good I wouldn’t know that but right after you take a bite it’s already taste good the bread is so fake you might think it’s really heavy but it’s actually pretty light it’s like one on one shape and number one pancakes from Bennett City so I just got our reservation so this shot behind me makes homemade pancakes and they’re one of a kind of fluffy pancakes are so good so if you want to eat at the spot you actually have to make a reservation they only take same-day reservations and the way to do it is you’ll have to come here and they’ll tell you which is the next available slot in order to make that reservation you’re gonna need to deposit two thousand yen so be prepared all right we’ll come back in a few hours and have some fluffy pancakes so Benny Sid who just opened last year but they’ve quickly made a name for themselves this shop used to be called Flamingo but the former owners children created this new shop Benny to do which means of red creme you see the connection a lot of the time seats are filled from the morning reservation so I order the bacon and eggs pancake look how precisely the chef’s tax each feathery pancake one by one like a true artist and to top it off with a creamy homemade hollandaise like sauce look at this masterpiece look at the egg on top the two pieces of bacon it’s a sandwich with all of this love and there’s another egg inside [Music] that’s truly amazing the person you taste is the creamy hollandaise sauce you can definitely taste it’s homemade and then you get like that crunch of the bacon innocent just cook perfectly and then you get to the pancake which is so airy and fluffy it just melts a psycho marshmallow but it’s so much better than that this is quite possibly the best pancakes I’ve ever had in my life I can take like the biggest bites but it’s not heavy at all I don’t care if you happen to make a reservation this place definitely worth the way and Michael order their most basic pancake [Music] [Music] unless the saltiness of the butter and the honey it’s not too heavy just look at this a nice touch even after you pour a lot it’s I wish this place will get so populous I didn’t come back definitely after eating here you’ll understand why they have a reservation process because each pancake takes a finite amount of time to make and so you can’t have too many customers coming in you have to like make sure that you know you have you can make the pancakes and serve them properly on time and fresh to each customer definitely worth the wait alright so
