Japan STREET FOOD TOUR of Ameyoko Market in Tokyo Japan


Hey guys hello from Tokyo, it’s such a nice day today, so I figured I’d take my eating outside Super please – it looks pretty good I’m on my way to a street market called ameyoko And this is a recommendation from my buddy John from only in Japan in this market if you break the name down I may also Stands for America and that’s because right after the World War two a lot of American goods were sold here So this used to be the site of a black market also, ameyoko is short for a maiya Yokocho which means candy alley because apparently candy was was also sold here Today this market is home to over a hundred and eighty store selling everything from bags to clothing to groceries Of course, of course, there’s food here that’s why I’m here and I’m here on the weekend which might not be the best place to be there because it is Crowded but I’m starving. So I’m just gonna walk around and see what they’re seeing eat It’s really a mix of different types of who’s here you got kebabs Chinese food, why should I Chinese food looks really really good here There’s actually a ton of Chinese food places and they all look really really good. That’s the prompt Okay, I gotta walk around and see what does she eat. This is the scouting part of the food adventure This is really interesting the mushrooms there’s they sell a lot of these mushrooms here and the price goes up from 3,000 yen all the way to 30000 yen on the top. Basically that’s a $300 mushroom. These are called matsutake mushrooms They’re basically Japan’s truffle and there’s still so $4,000 a pound. I’ve never had one I’m sure it’s guys swish out a kitchen I cook so much So start out with some takoyaki haven’t had talked to here since I came to Japan We got to fix that this place meaning a toy a huge line for their takoyaki And this might look a lot different than the ones you’ve had in Japan or anywhere else because these don’t really have anything on them No saws, no bonito flakes. And that’s because they have all the sauces and condiments. Here you out of yourself Okay, my god don’t make the same mistake I did for holding my mouth not smashing to do no push me on the outside Nice and gooey who loved the octopus this is ultimate Japanese comfort food right here Whenever I add in my own colonies before so I might have messed up a little bit But I like the fact you can add as much communal place as you want Not if you flush this hot dog place in the next door, and they sell some crazy-looking hot dogs Oh, no, I mean I kind of feel like I want that thing right there. Here it is This is my corn dog with the potatoes all stuck on the outside like a body armor and am I supposed to coconut powder sugar? soy bean coconut Okay This one better, okay, so they recommended the coconut powder sugar I’m just gonna add some ketchup And maybe some honey mustard So here it is My freakin dog with with potatoes. I have one of these in Korea. There’s a pretty good number one, which is pure cheese Whoa, I was gonna shave That’s actually really delicious that’s the modular cheese in there though It’s nice and slightly sweet potatoes are basically french fries. If you’re gonna get Dutch to definitely recommend the ketchup I really do like the sugary element as well. It’s basically a really substantial Potato we mozzarella stick. I Know for a fact that My life span has decreased after you English. I got no regrets this I mean, it looks crazy, but you should definitely get one way in come here. Oh I love tea shops Oh YUM, I Love good matcha green tea perfect doctor some food a lot of fruits here and look at this. Great 3000. Yeah. Yeah. Hi I’m getting myself some great I think I gotta try some of this Chinese food and all the Chinese stalls here. They essentially sell the same thing It’s really weird. They sell down P, which is a Seon thing then they sell Doesn’t sell shim Geum ball or camp fried dumplings and that’s a Shanghai thing So all sorts of different Chinese food items but each stall pretty much sells the same stuff I got some fried buns and I got some lamb stores. There’s some pig’s feet. Why not go ham fried buns sesame on the outside Let’s see here. This is very important. Okay? It’s nice nice and crispy on the bottom. That’s really really important. Oh, that’s funny So the top of the bun you see the spiral the top of the bun is the part that’s fried here I’ve never seen that so this is the bottom of the bun and then got some pigs feet This a lot of collagen is great for your skin Ladies love them and guys if you want a fair complexion you lead them to pleasure you mean I Was larger than I thought this is good, this is a juicy little oh wow So that’s super filling inside the outside nice and crispy dough ways in white it’s Chewy is not too heavy pretty light and it sucked up the nice fat from the pork so s actually really tasty and no team Really shocked about this I kitchen. I mean I did not expect this to be good. I didn’t User must get bunched if you ever come to this market got some stores because I can’t say notice you’re not As mind-blowing ice a little buns but few things are alike, let’s go good done finally got some tried pockets with eggs This is a classic dish one of my all-time favorites Always go throw up now. There’s nice Crispy, really crispy on the outside nice and it gave extremely fresh chives. Alright despite This fruit stand was right next door. Couldn’t forget how good the melon tastes last. I’m obviously isn’t that $150 million, but stuff Oh Yeah, Japan has the juiciest sweetest melons That’s right now this is where you should get I feel like this market It’s really really good for seafood in terms of places to eat Um, there are little restaurants around here, but just counting beat the actual food stalls in this market There’s not a lot so I’m gonna want to rather more But let’s keep looking. Oh this place see that line. That’s all for March ice cream I’m gonna get to it as soon as I walk in the door the green tea smells just Pummeling it’s not so good Wow This is the matcha. It’s March ice cream I’ve ever had this is such concentrated matcha flavor and it’s yummy I’ve had a lot of March ice cream in my day This is just so incredibly fragrant. I know they didn’t make this here probably but this cone is really nice, too. I Love this very Masha. I Have to I’m sorry. And by the way The shop is over there. Even from here. I could smell the March of it This place serves some meats cook head some colors I Hear me I see meats Let’s go get some meat. So he’s saying this is the number one. There’s the most popular beef import. I Got two of these croquettes one is potato one is beef and pork. I think this is a visit of potato one Is so soft not at all What I expected I thought was like I thought I would taste like a potato knish or maybe like a fried potato pancakes sure thing The outside is fried. Perfect. It’s such a great crunch and then the inside it’s almost like mashed potato on the inside. Gooey Fini flavored extremely. Well, I’m gonna add a little sauce to it Little this is like a moisture mixture Sasha This is what I’m waiting for, this is our number one bestseller fried cook care with beef and pork inside Shut the front gate oh my gosh, this is a work of art right here because I can meet pie again The outside is just tremendous. I mean as crispy as fried but doesn’t feel too oily and really juicy, too The inside the meat is almost a softest potatoes you love the onions love the fat from the pork actually check this out I’m gonna combine the meat 1 and the potato with me Jump potatoes. Well, that’s a complete meal right here Oh Eddie This whole area I mean just walk around it’s not just a straight walk way of the market just tons of restaurants Izakayas stores everything I’ve eaten so far today. It’s been amazing. I see skewers during a ton of these izakaya place I’m gonna go into one and round up some skewers I’m in exactly 20 place. I’ve no idea what’s called, but it is I’m waiting right now and I’m in a I’m in a long wait line right now Ok there though. Finally got it after about an hour. I know the problem is The entire menus Japanese. I think I’m at a good place. This is like very very local Place, they don’t really have English. Maybe they have to dig up this English menu for me. It’s not readily available Yeah, each skewer is about a dollar Some a little more expensive I think these this is the assorted pork skewers grilled peppers leeks This is another fatty pork dial water.

  1. Chinese can eat an alien on a stick .. so can you not like what you eat. Bet you’d eat a shoe cake and we’ll see the vid

  2. Japan has the BEST fruits, tbh. I had strawberries during a trip at an all-you-can-pick strawberry farm outside Chiba, and I did not want to leave. And I never had fresh strawberries after that once I reached back home. True Story.

  3. Am I the only one that watches these because I’m to scared to get on a plane and go try them myself so I just eat the way he describes them 😂

  4. Hey Mike, did you ever figure out the name of the Yakitori place you went to in this video? Would love to go here, I’m going to Japan in October and using all the recs in your video!

  5. i cant imagine if mike chen were to smoke weed and get munchies. how much food can he really eats in a day.

  6. News said cheapest food supply comes from radiation exploded city fukushima in Japan, so becareful what you eat because japanese sell these food that japanese don't to tourists.

  7. They need to make more profit so they sell radioactive contaminated food supply in the street food more
    Safety #1
    Health

  8. First time seeing you normally I watch only from japan a lot of times so far I like your channel

  9. Omg! 😍 if my hubby saw those grapes. He doesn't like fruit either but the loves green grapes… But 30$. It's worth it if it's that sized! ❤

  10. I wish I could spend as freely as you when I'm in Tokyo. I'm missing out on so much because I cannot afford to spend my entire budget on food.

  11. Hi mike. what is the name of the izakaya place you went to and waited for an hour to eat. i wanna go there and eat too. i checked your description box and it isn’t written there. thanks

  12. japan has irradiated places and they are just dumping it to the sea and are now trying to sell the contaminated fish and goods to other countries CHEAP?

  13. *girl with the blue headphones thinking to herself

    1:44 "wish he'd walk faster smh typical vlogger"
    1:50 "?? did he read my thoughts?? I should get out of here" LMAOOO

  14. you should visit Indoneisa. Indonesia had a lot food you should try, its so tasty.. you should come visit here in Indonesia..

  15. I bet Mikey thinks about food 24/7. Driving-food, on a date watching a movie-food, having an intense conversation with his boss-food, sleeping-food dreams, showering-he actually eats while taking a shower, meeting his idol-food. I can keep going on and on. He’s quite literally a real life Joey Tribianni!

    P.S. they probably put some kind of steroid in their foods. 🤣

  16. omg all this looks so good. i want to eat my tv screen. i want to actually quit marijuana because of the munchies it gives me plus your video. . . its causing me torment mr chen!

  17. No! Never would I pay $30. for a bunch of grapes. Don’t care how juicy and/or delicious they are. Other than that, loved the video…as always!!!
    ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  18. So hungry 😩
    We recently did a fashion vlog in Ameyoko, but we definitely didn’t eat enough street food while we were there haha

  19. Hey I know this not relevant but u look like Jackie Chan like really and it's so cool I love ur account so much fan from egypt 🇪🇬 🤗

  20. Is that a grape or muscat? I've never seen muscat in real life only had the gummies (looks like the 'shine muscat' off of google) but looks really tasty. Maybe that's why it's 30 bucks.
    Edit: just googled the price and japanese department stores sell bundles for at least 6000 yen so you got a good deal lol
