  2. Hi Pablo, just wanted to say thank you so much for this video. I went to Tokyo recently and tried the matcha ice cream at Suzukien and the taiyaki. The taiyaki was one the best things I've eaten for the whole trip. I don't think I can eat any other taiyaki again

  3. Okay, I followed the Zebra's footsteps, and I can tell you Paolo knows what he is talking about!

    #6 – Yukari – I went there twice. The first time, I found the chicken to be a bit dry. Not sure if it was the spicy flavour that I ordered the first time, but I did a return leg the following week and ordered their regular fare and thought is was quite good.

    #2 Sekine – Their Nikuman was excellent. The ladies behind the counter were awesome. Everyday I would go, they had a good laugh because I would always order ichi Nikuman. By the thrid day, they were running to get the Nikuman before I ordered! It was hot as advertised and the bun was fluffy. The meat was juicy as shown in the video. Really nice taste!

    #1 Benitsuru – How good is this??? If you want a reservation, you need to get in line before 8:30am. I arrived at 8:27 and I was 15 people deep. I paid my 1,000 Yen and got the earliest reservation possible at 10:40!!! The pancakes were top drawer. I got the one with the fried eggs and bacon covered with the sauce. Great to have once…but if this was the daily diet, I would be dead in about 3 weeks! Service was great. People were polite. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

  4. About macha ice cream level 7, did Maiko say "premium version of bad"? LOL
    She is always funny! 🙂

  5. We're heading back to Japan in 3 weeks and staying at Khaosan World Asakusa while in Tokyo so I'll definitely be trying out these places. Already checked on Google Maps how far away some of the places are from us – Yasubee is only 250m!!! 🙂 Thanks Paolo!

  6. Another great video, Paolo! I like that you kept your interactions with the shopkeepers in the video. Most other vloggers don't do that, but I feel it expands and authenticates what you're experiencing. Also I enjoy hearing "the home language" spoken. I began watching this to see the pancakes (my gosh!! the pancakes!!!) … but now I think my favorite segment is when you tasted the onigiri from the shop called Yadoroku. Seaweed is not one of my favorite foods but I'm always ready eat it and to learn how it can be prepared. Thank you!

  7. went to a dessert place in uen that sold strong green tea. its like you made green tea and when its gone you took the leaves left in the tea pot and ate them

  8. Love your videos n your good energy , thanks from the information, I cant wait to go!! Saludos desde Cancún México 🙂

  9. I wish I would have found your video before we honeymooned in Japan this past January. We spent our first night in Asakusa before setting out around the country but spent a full morning there when we returned for the last 5 days in Tokyo. We both agreed then that we'd come back and stay in Asakusa as we loved the feel of that area. Guess we're going to discover these places on our next trip!! Keep doing what you do Paolo, your videos are great!!

  10. Holy crap those pancakes! There is no way I could eat all 3 by myself. But the one with the egg on it looked sooooooooooooo good!

  11. It’s funny cos while i enjoy watching Paola eat & describe the dish, its Maiko’s review that I take in seriously! 😆

  12. Fellow fried chicken fan, here. Your video made Yukari a stop for us on our recent Tokyo visit. Fantastic! My wife was skeptical but it was so good.

  13. Man keep it up! Watching your videos getting more excited for you trip to Tokyo this March 2020! Definitely learn many in your videos 🙂

  14. フラミンゴ紹介してしまったなぁ、、、

  15. Two questions someone? 1) What is the hollandaise-like sauce? 2) Does the 2000 yen go toward the total bill or is it extra?

  16. i love your video paolo. but can you add english subtitle? im sure it will help increase new subscibers to understand each word you say although you have very good english pronunciation. cheers 🙂

  17. Why does Maiko always get the left overs? Can you switch it up a bit and maybe let her get the first taste once in a while?

  18. Hi Paolo, thanks for making the video. So informative. I have a question about Homemade Pancakes from Benitsuru. So to eat in the restaurant, I need to make a reservation. Could you tell me how many days before I should make a reservation and how (by phone or email)? I can't speak Japanese and in their FB account, I can't find it either. Thanks!

  19. Oh men!! just came back from 10 days trip to Tokyo and never get to taste theses food!!!! Im not sure who’s to blame if it’s the hot weather or the length of vacation. We will come back for SURE!!!

  20. Yumm!! Your food picks are so delicious. Your food presentation with the food's name in big sub-titles are perfect for us to learn and the phonetics help too. Hi Maiko!

  22. Hello again. Please do a video on halal food in Japan. Also I think all your viewers would appreciate a complication of you saying “hmmmmmnnnnm” after each bite.

  23. hello there … love your video and I thing it will be nice to share a little bit more info about the food because not everyone knows the japanese food … thanks

  24. OMG 😮 Paolo san and Maiko san, I’ve enjoyed your videos. Just wanted to say thanks for those amazing videos! We’re going to Japan soon. So excited 😆

  25. hai paolo, i really enjoy ur video and i like how u describe anything. btw, have u consider to visit Indonesia? i'll be glad to guide u guys, especially in jakarta. hope to see u soon 😊

  26. I love your food videos but please explain what is in it and how the ingredients create an experience as they are combined together. OK?

  27. My 5 years old son Patrick loves your videos. Especially the ones where you are drawing the location of interests. Keep on the good work.

  28. Your videos are very helpful! We are going to Asakusa soon and Definitely going to all the places you mentioned in this video! Thanks Paolo😁

  29. So nice to see American style bacon in the #1 here. I keep seeing you call other meat “bacon” in other videos and I recognize there are many styles, just not what I’m used to seeing. Worth the wait though as this tower of pancakes, bacon and fried eggs drenched in hollandaise sauce looked amazing.

  30. Will be back in Japan this Dec. Will stay in Asakusa. Yaaasss added in my food list to try. Thank you Paulo. Always watching you videos.
