Mike Chen and Claire Saffitz Explore Japanese Street Food and Candy | Gochi Gang

Chia sẻ
  • Xuất bản 12 Th11, 2019
  • Japan Village is a 20,000-square-foot food hall in Brooklyn’s Industry City, and Reina Scully is ready to explore every corner. But no food tour is complete without a few friends. Joining Reina on her adventure is Strictly Dumpling’s Mike Chen, Bon Appétit’s Claire Saffitz, and NYC restaurateur Sakura Yagi. First, Reina, Mike, and Sakura tour Japan Village’s dizzying array of Japanese food stalls, sampling everything from street-food staples like okonomiyaki and yakisoba, to comfort-cooking classics like onigiri. Then, for dessert, Reina meets Claire for a Japanese candy shopping spree at Sunrise Mart. Together, Reina and Claire explore Japan’s love affair with Kit-Kats, sample a giant Pocky stick, and search for inspiration for Claire’s next big project.

      @MLG GAMER Clair is the "Rogue" of the culinary world. She is super great with super powers! :)

      I love it! I've actually heard of Onigiri like Mike from anime and I had no idea in Japan KitKat had so many flavours. I am so used to just dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate. Also Pocky reminds me of those straws where you could have it with milk and eat it. I know of an American version of it cuz I've seen ads but never tasted it myself but I would imagine it was inspired from Pocky. Those bamboo shoot and mushroom shaped snacks look pretty good as well. I was eating something while watching this and even though I am stuffed I am craving some of these anyway. The power of cuisine!

    I've watched Mike for so long, especially in middle school, and now im a huge ba fan and watch ba constantly, so i love seeing Claire and Mikey in the same video ! 💕

    Actually, adult sweetness is very sexy because there is more savory mixed into it which makes the sweet more exciting and complex :)

    For the love of my life, PLEASE tell me what the intro song is! I have to know, I love it!
    And the type of rock you use is something I thoroughly enjoy. Oftentimes music in shows is either annoying or in best cases working in the background, but your picks work really well with the vibe of the show and stand out pleasantly. Goo stuff

    Very disappointed by first we feast. To go from your all star interviewer Sean Evans, to this careless ditsy millennial wannabe is so off putting. I don't know whether or not this is a deal breaker to unsubscribe. The only reason I have watched her videos is because she has great guests on the show but you can tell how detached she is from the interviewee with her fake "awwws" and "mmmms" and agreeing with everything they say. You can tell she hasn't done her research and doesn't know a thing about who she's interviewing because there's no intrinsic connection that develops. It was so awkward to see Mikey being left out when he was the only one keeping the interview light and humorous. Then seeing you 3 stand trying to eat from 1 plate was so disrespectful to the food. The candy you gave Claire out of all the candies you could have introduced for inspiration was so basic, what about crunky, meiji, lotte... The way she spoke of Japanese food sounded like the voice of an outsider trying to overcompensate making up those fake memories, yet still not coming up with any thoughts of depth about the flavors. And hearing her go back and forth between speaking japanese words and phrases to her valley girl accent was so cringe. Ya'll couldn't find a more autherntic, charasmatic interviewer than this? What a complete let down. No justice for the food or the guests on the show

    I feel like, in France, we don't get that same home-made feeling when it comes to japanese food in restaurants (but there are shops to buy imported ingredients though)
    I was as surprised as Mike to see the size of onigiris, very nice to see how big they actually are ahah !
