  1. Is Melt in your mouth softness the only criteria here???? He goes on and on and on about it….no other description. Irritating

  2. bonito… im still waiting to try that. i missed my opportunity to get it at the town local market… they havent had it avail for a while.

  3. Он постоянно делает вид ,что вкусно ,даже если отстой???

  4. Mark eats sushi: oohhh, oohhhh
    Dad gives cum sample: here son try this
    Mark: ohh, ohhh
    Dad: its good right
    Mark: yeah, but oooohhhhhh

  5. All of a sudden I realise how much goes into the selling of Tuna and how revered it is with the Eastern Market, thank you so much for showing the process xxxxx

  6. Me molesta tantonde los asiáticos como tratan los animales antes de comerlos… incluso como los matan lo encuentro horrible… me llama la atención que una cultura tan espuritual no tenga respeto con la vida de los animales que van a comer

  7. “ไม่เผ็ด ไม่กิน” mark wiens can you eat Thai food in south country? Name “คั่วกลิ้ง”

  8. all just fancy words to get you to pay more. "best quality fish", "best tuna", "tuna action". It is all fish that was caught in the sea, it won't differ to any other tuna anyone else catches anywhere else in the world. The only thing that determines quality is how long it took to reach from boat to market.

  9. In my city, Bari( Puglia,Italia) you can eat the same sea food. Puglia is the only italian region where you can eat raw sea food.

  10. I feel like they were playing around with him when they gave him the fresh shrimp. He was laughing and filming hahaha. But I love it Mark. Keep it up!

  11. Just had my lunch, and this made me drool again. Been in japan once and gained 5 kgs in 2 weeks, the food there is just too delicious.

  12. I could see heaven on your face of each bite you took ! Incredible video ! Thank you Mark ! I hope that will be my turn one day very soon , I can see that will be in reality and of course I would remember your face expression in each scenery in the sushi bar ! Just fabulous! Well done ;))))

  13. I love his contents, but I dislike his facial expression which is getting extremely corny and fake video after video.

  14. Those "Ohh…" ROLF other just fucken ignore him. Even the Japanese at his back can't hold it watching him react. 😂

  15. Please change up your facial expressions, no matter what your eating, it's all the same, as if all tastes the same. From raw fish to raw lamb.

  16. Mark, I love your videos, You bring the experience to life by the watering of our mouth just longing to have that one taste when you give that "oooh" expression. I love the Japan tour and the ramein videos, because that's my favorite meals, sea food videos, ALL OF IT, awesome job Mark, keep it coming my man, Aloha from Hwneye(Hawaiian Eye) from the Bay Area, California.

  17. 高くても美味しい物を少しずつ、江戸前鮨には職人さんと江戸っ子の心意気?が有ります。

  18. I have just 2 of places which make me fly to Tokyo.
    one of them is Sushi Arai which I've been last weekend
    and the other one is Sugita.
    you can check my video of Sugita too
