one of the main destinations for any tourist coming to Tokyo I wanted to show you my top 10 street food so before we start let me just give you a little background there’s actually two parts of the skeezy fish market this is that jo9 side which is just to the left of me it’s where the original market is in the where all the fish is auctioned and sold off just to the right of me is that yokai side which is the refrig market poor I would say tourists and just regular people so when the join a side there are many fantastic restaurants for workers who’ve been working here since dawn I filmed this around 3 p.m. and you can see that most of the places are closed this is similar to the jokai side make sure to come here early so you don’t miss out on all the delicious treats let’s head over to the jokai side which has more street food I am so excited let’s go eat some Street food [Music] number ten men jakotsu from Yoshizawa show ten at first this small store just looks like a mom-and-pop butcher shop but it’s actually owned by a famous company with one of the best beef Coppa restaurants and Ginza called yoshizawa it costs a couple hundred bucks for one meal there but here you can enjoy and taste of it for only a couple of dollars minty cuts if it’s still warm to the touch it’s nice this : this morning I love fried food let’s try this out oh this is so good it’s super crunchy that like fried lamb and then the meat is super juicy look at that steam just comes straight from the meat it’s actually Matsuzaka goo which means Matsuzaka beef it’s actually a more popular beef here than Japan compared to Co baby and it’s super good if you come here definitely try this and it’s not that expensive so good I’m gonna have to have another bite [Music] George it’s really good cipro ducek and you see like extra juice comes out and I think out early yours put it back for like it’s like extra crunch you look thin layer I know good number nine sea urchin button from

fun and the moon is on top it’s amazing [Music] so freakin cream dude is so good man there’s so much the bun is amazing holy crap this is like my favorite thing out of so this is the Unni right here and then this is kind of like the Unni fish cream it’s like a pure Unni cream I cannot believe that they made something this delicious at the street food market you know I could eat maybe like 10 of these it’s like a full flavor of who need [Music] number eight Inari sushi from ski ban ski Ben just opened last year so it’s fairly new they offer a variety of toppings for their annatee we just had a need so I wanted to try something a bit different I’m going with this creative delight salmon and he could up so this is Inari sushi with salmon and Acuto look at the bits and chunks so much so it has a sushi on top and then as rice and it’s wrapped in fried tofu sorry it’s kind of loud behind me but you kind of fill them anyway let’s try it first right now it’s so heavy trying to hold this thing to try to take pictures and my like freaking arm holding talks like it’s so eyes tired this thing is so heavy okay the fried tofu is definitely sweet fish on top the salmon and it CUDA is very salty so some really good mix but the rice is very full and moist but it definitely really really good I really like remember the one we had the SkyTrain that one is a lot sweeter this is like a bit bitter you could always hear like really bouncy they actually sell hot sake right here at the standing bar it’s amazing number seven tamagoyaki from Martha Kay there are many stores who specialize in tamagoyaki which in Japanese is a rolled omelet this shop became famous because the owners brother is a popular celebrity here in Japan let’s get our egg on so we just got that tamagoyaki actually only 100 yen so it’s probably one of the more affordable dishes here you can see and it’s so steamy it’s freaking crazy mmm so sweet good thing to start with this in the morning I wasn’t expecting it to be so good [Music] number six very total dome Maharajah Cadogan this is for my tuna lovers out there Cadogan is a new face in Tsukiji market but was originally a shop from quarter moon market in Osaka which I featured in a previous video their sushi rolls are really good but today I’m getting the best Bowl because hey why not we just got the old total which is that fatty tuna it’s the most expensive tuna in the store I’m so excited to taste cuz it’s just gonna be juicy look at that let’s put a little bit of wasabi on here [Music] you can melt the tuna with your tongue it’s that soft and buttery oh my god that is amazing one of the best tunas I’ve had in a while that’s really good it’s a little bit of rice in there no try this it’s really good you know like it’s only to melt they like nothing right now I need a little bit stuffy oh yeah mm-hmm Oh in the rice it’s seasoned this is like a comment it has this amine yeah a little bit of vinegar and it’s super good number five Vegeta from Tommy suey Tommy Tsui is a shop that specializes in whale meat and you can eat and drink inside to [Music] unopinionated I saw alcohol hook them up today so they’re making it fresh as we speak you have to wait a little bit because it hasn’t fully cooked but man when you get it it’s gonna be super freakin hot and warm whoo Wow look at that is just dripping Wow amazing we just got cachito which in English means whale Wow look at that it’s like a barbecue whale and then you can smell the barbecue mm-hmm it tastes very much like me no I’m more than lamb or chicken or anything it tastes like me I have kind of a a slight bitter taste kind of almost like a liver but it’s pretty good I just love barbecue in general so definitely with the taste the sauce that they have is that kind of like a soy sauce or some sort of salty sauce it’s pretty good you want to try something new friggin whale where else in the world can you try whale okay put it up before I think I had Jimmy it’s got a rare do you do ice cream look at this it’s freaking whale ice cream so actually what it is it’s a vanilla ice cream and then it has whale flakes that are sprinkled on top so you can see kind of the brown kind of that dark flakes that’s actually whale flakes and then maybe some salt or something oh I just blew a little bit it’s almost like there’s like Goma flakes like a bitch really but it’s really good vanilla but be honest I can’t really taste the whale I think they just need to put more whale it’s still good definitely good but not very Whaley apparently whales to us we good for health lots of nutrition so I guess you just put well on everything number four crab tempura with crab butter from Nikki why humph Oh [Music] Wow look at that got me so Oh looks so good this is like a fish cake it has crab meat and then it has crab miso on top I love crab one of my dishes I have in the morning I had toast a piece of bread put some cream cheese and those foot crab on top and I loved it so I should love this to prop is amazing you can really taste the bitterness of the miso and a fish cake is pretty sweet hmm I really like the meats on top though it however you can like feel like the BBQ flame-broiled taste of everything I thought it was gonna be quite light but it’s actually pretty heavy it’s only like one meal in itself we had some rice and nurses it’ll be like the perfect meal [Music] number three shu mai from sigh why can sigh baikin is a traditional Chinese restaurant loved by many skeezy workers and famous for its giant shoe my pork dumpling it’s not bigger than my head but it’s pretty big we just got the shoe might be against you my that I’ve ever had in my life I was looking around and this is probably one of the smaller portions compared to the other one so it’s actually even bigger than this one it’s some freaking amazing let’s try some mustard and put that on there so people generally eat this with soy sauce but they actually had worse the Shire sauce instead oh look at this I don’t know even how do I put this all my vows but it’s so big it’s soft and juicy it’s really not like a meat it’s kind of like this like squishy meteor-like squishy thing so the sauce adds kind of like a little sweetness which is pretty nice it’s not really meaty it’s right number two choice ters from Saito suis on there are several shops in skeezy where you can get fresh oysters but the store I trust is this one put it get 1 pound alright alright my oysters check out these oysters we just got the oysters from probably the best oyster place in all of ski G the owner of this shop is known for having the best eye to pick out the oysters at the market look we got two different sizes we got a smaller oyster size and we got the big jumbo oyster size look at so big all right damn I forgot the freakin record button trust me the large oysters were amazing but luckily we still have my cus part I’m gonna try the smaller one you’re gonna spell it the bigger one is so pretty big really strong thing but they were rash elizena [Music] number one Juden and hormone from kitsune ax kitsune ax is one of the shops with the longest history the owners grandfather started as a standing bar where you could enjoy horror moan skewers and now it’s transformed into this wonderful standing eatery look at that it’s steaming so we got a molten Ave which is actually their most popular dish out here now you’ve probably seen this in other vlogs which is really really good here and then second we got the beef done which is the second most popular dish so we can try both today so let’s take the first bite then as the onions the meat is actually hormone which is like beef intestine let me see they’re just melt-in-your-mouth nice and juicy it’s really good hmm oh you can really taste the alchemy so and yeah alchemy soap can be really bitter but this one is actually really really creamy and almost sweet to the taste oh my god the Blitz actually pepper my favorite look at that steam it’s amazing look at that let’s try to get him mm-hmm the meat is actually a little bit sweet so tender that it almost is I got like corned beef it’s really good mmm usually like if you have this out no not fast food places it’s really chewy not so good but this really really taste it just really melts you can actually add egg to this on top which I completely forgot to do so when you guys are here and if you try this and you should definitely add the egg on top let’s try something that motsu with some rice because it got both options right now you guys might actually want to try this because it’s pretty freakin tasty what you do you get the motive you put it with a good honor and you take a big bite of both this is what I call the Paulo combo well it’s not really a thing

  1. In my search to bring Japanese food and culture to the world, I may have offended some people by including whale in my video. I apologize to those whom I have offended. Out of respect, I will not feature whale in my future videos. Hope you guys enjoy the rest of the video.

  2. aloha, paolo & maiko! i’m going to be in tokyo in a few weeks and really wanted to try some of these foods, but i heard that the market is moving to toyosu before we get there. can you comment on the location of the food stalls after the move? mahalo for all the advice and for working so hard tasting everyghing for your viewers! haha

  3. I'm going to miss you you were proposing eating more well and I unfortunately am against what the whaling operations that are taking place in Japan another countries. I'll be unsubscribing but continue doing what you're doing just think about what you're doing that's all thank you take care

  4. Hey Paolo another awesome food guide thanks to you and Maiko for the rad tips and laughs!
    Was wondering if and when it moved I heard this coming November? Which is a drag since I arrive on November 2nd and I really wanted to try some of the stuff on your list here! Holy shit man that uni bun! Last time I was at tsukiji about five years ago I had amazing omakase sushi breakfast at place recommended to me called sushi sei that f’ng ruled! Please any info you have on the move status and when it’ll reopen in its new space would be greatly appreciated.
    Hopefully by the time I’m there and some of these places on your list will be cookin’
    Keep up the great videos man and maybe I’ll catch you guys while I’m in Tokyo✌🏼peace from brooklyn

  5. Now the Tsukiji Fish Market has moved to a new place, any these street food outside the Tsukiji Fish Market still around ? Or majority of them shift to another place, if so, where ? Thanks

  6. Maybe eating whale is illegal in your country, but not in Japan. Quit applying your own morals to another culture it's all subjective. If you feel like you don't want to wat whale that's fine but don't change just cause of pressure from people who aren't willing to look at stuff from different POVs. If you don't like that just move on, no need to hate. he's not forcing this down your throat.

  7. I'm disliking and unsubscribing because you are supporting whaling which is unethically and unsustainable practices in Japan. I love your content, but unfortunately you've lost me now.

  8. hello
    can you tell me which day you when there???
    cause i have been there once but not many shop open on the day i visit there..

  9. Love this guide! My lil sis & i watched this & a few more of your videos before we made a trip to Tokyo this summer. We pretty much used your video as a guide for the food stuff! When we had a hard time looking for the food stalls, we ended up finding them by recognizing the vendors themselves thanks to your video! LOL!

  10. Hello Paolo! I'm going to Tokyo for 8 days in November and I'm excited to eat the giant oysters at Tsukiji market. Maybe I'll see you there with Maiko!

  11. Wow! Just recently found your videos as I will be traveling to Tokyo soon, and they have all just been so helpful! From the tips and hand-drawn maps (which is my fav parts of your vid! Really helps me understand where places are located). Thanks so much for the tip at Tsukiji fish market (along with an update for 2018 post its move)! Your vids deserve way more views, mate! You got a subscribe from me, hands down. Cheers!

  12. I will go there, I am looking forward to enjoy the street food in Tokyo. Could you recommend good places for sashimi, at the market? thank you

  13. Hmm, most of those food is actually overrated, couldn’t even eat the whole black bun. Look for some quiet local place for food it’s much much better!

  14. Ok lost me at the whale. Kind of funny how in another video you mentioned horse meat and then were like "not that I'm condoning eating horse" but whale meat is fine? Jesus dude…

  15. Also, re other comments here, it's less about whales being endangered and more about the horrific methods used to kill them imho. There's no such thing as a quick kill.

  16. Hi. I am going to be visiting Tokyo and Tsukiji Market in May. What time do you recommend people get to the market to maximize their time? What time do vendors start selling cooked food and what time do places start closing up?

  17. I love your map drawing. It's very pretty and clear. I really like that way to show us! If there's any chances to visit Tokyo again, I will definitely take your recommendations. It seems real local things!! Haha 😍

  18. Paola,
    We filmed at the fish market this morning and I guess you’ve heard they’ve put up your photo where they sell the sea urchin bun 🙂 And you’re right, it’s absolutely delicious!

  19. I went to the market today and had the sea urchin bun and it was amazing! Plus they have a picture of you on the stall! 😁

  20. There are many good food in Tsukihi market huh😆
    Now the market moves to Toyosu market, but there are not so many restaurants as Tsukiji market used to have huh 😕

  21. I'm going to Japan in October with my mom and dad, and I think this will be one of my itinerary. Thanks for your insights!

  22. Trying to buy street food from Tokyo here and there and end up spending more than Dinner at a Restaurant.
    Something here for 97yen, another for 120yen, another 300yen for a hash brown, 600 yen for a grilled scallop, 1500 yen for a small sashimi bowel etc.
    You end up spending more for the service and the food.
    You don't have to Tip in japan but the tip is sneakily included in the food.
    The only bet is walking into the local supermarket for half price bento and sushi after 7 pm.

  23. Love your videos on Shinjuku. You made our first trip more enjoyable! We found most of your top 10 things to eat, but we really wanted to eat the uni bun and could not find it! Can you give us some direction to find it? Keep on making video’s.

  24. Just wanted to say thanks for this awesome video. Me and my girl enjoyed all of the food you recommended from the whale meat to the uni bun, which is our favorite. They had you’re picture posted right in front of the place lol. Thanks again!

  25. Had a Sea Urchin bun last week, thank you for the video, found it on this trip because of this video, Thanks and cheers

  26. I tried the menchi katsu. The same lady was kind of rude to me or tried to ignore me when I wanted to order the menchi katsu. She was too busy serving the other customers the more expensive items and the curry beef or pork. Finally one young chap attended to us. The menchi katsu was super oily and tasted more like pork. I wished I took better note of where the sea urchin bun stall was. We went on a Saturday morning and it was crowded af with tourists so we left

  27. Paolo, we will be visiting in May 2020, what is: 1) the best day of the week, and 2) best time of-the-day to visit the Tsukiji Market and be able to try the top 10 shops on your video? Love your videos, thanks !

  28. Thank you Paolo. Awesome content as my wife and I planning to visit Japan next year, your videos will definitely make a great help to us!

  29. What I like the most in your videos is your joyness doing that, this is so contagious that I normaly hit the like button before the first minute 🙂
    Also you always bring quite interesting spots, foods and activities to share with us, thank you for that!

  30. Had the uni bun today and it was delicious! They also have your picture on the steam box http://imgur.com/gallery/s5VKyjc

  31. All your videos are full of energy… We'll be visiting tokyo osaka kyoto last week of June.. and im so excited for tsukiji food stalls. Are they open on a Sunday?

  32. I like how all these food vlogs pretend to like everything. Mmmmm… Mmmmmm. #fake. Yet when you try it urself it's pretty much bland. Zzzzzz!

  33. Your videos actually changed my itinerary… Thanks for all the effort put into making this video!

  34. LOVE YOUR VLOGS!! Going to Tokyo this August. I actually made an excel file for all your recos =p thanks for all the helpful information!!!!

  35. Hey Paolo. No Toritoh restaurant? Everytime I'm in Tokyo I just have to go there at least once to eat Oyako Don. They also have store at Toyosu Market. Maybe you wanna do Toyosu Market report soon.

  36. Im sorry I had to down vote this because I do not at all condone eating whale meat. Knowing that whales are going exinct I feel obligated now more than ever to not at all encourage nor promote any Japanese whaling. They are doing harm to an entire eco-system.

  37. Japanese must stop supplying "Fukushima radiation poisoned foods" to tourists in Japan! . . . Stop this exporting of radioactive foods to other countries! . . This is crazy!

  38. Gonna stay 8 nights right next to fish market in Tsukiji, so thanks for this… Thumbs down cuz the whale eating though!

  39. I love this video! May I find out approximate how much did your day cost eating everything you at at Tsukiji Market?
