Trying Japan Wendy’s First Kitchen Japan Only Menu | Japanese Fast Food


In this video I want to show you guys at the japan-only Wendy’s menu All right full disclosure I am a McDonald’s fan But I had to do this video for you guys because any of you guys are coming to Japan you might want to check out A Wendy’s what you’ll find when coming in Japan is that Wendy’s is so much different than in the States The reason being is that it recently done a collaboration with first kitchen. This is a Japanese fast food restaurant But before we do that I just want to say if you like my Tokyo or Japan guides and definitely the subscribe button and the Bell button because I release a video every Saturday morning once a week also If you guys want to see what I’m doing on a daily basis and catch some of the behind the scenes action Check out my Instagram channel. Alright, let’s go inside so Wendy’s closed down all of their 71 shops in Japan in 2009, but later reopened in 2011, but it wasn’t until 2015 when Wendy’s purchased the fast food brand first Kitchen, merging all of their Japan stores and what we see today The Wendy’s first kitchen hybrid stores. We just got to so much food. So excited to try all this stuff I have five different burgers to show you guys today. Wendy’s has done a partnership or collaboration with first kitchen This is a Japanese fast-food chain. That’s why now You see like pasta down here, and that’s why you see a soup bowl Like they don’t have this at a regular Wendy’s and because of this collaboration. So let’s just like try the first burger Alright so this is the Wendy’s cheese and bacon and egg burger. It’s very similar to your regular Baconator I think. Where you have the cheese, meat and then you have the bun but what sets it apart is you have a full-on egg in there. That is an egg filling that strain is It’s almost like a tartar sauce almost like you can see I think that green piece is like a piece of relish That’s quite good I like that I like the egg in there and like the Meat itself is always I can see you’re very wendy’s burgers If you don’t like wendy’s burgers and like the actual meat itself can’t really help you there One of the things I love about when is the most is that it has different sauces like check this out. There is Mentaiko sauce They have a garlic mayonnaise, cheese sauce, and there was also like an avocado sauce, but that’s not one my favorites I didn’t get it, but it’s cool that they have all the sauces They even have hot sauces but I’m like a sauce guy if you don’t like this and it’s like a little too dry for you Then you just add like the garlic mayonnaise Mmm, you’ve got a whole new burger Definitely recommend this garlic mayonnaise sauce it like makes any burger taste good That’s probably like 100 million calories there, but it’s just so good All right, so this is that barbecue pulled pork burger. It has your regular bun, but on the inside you have tomatoes you have the lettuce, pulled-pork right there, bacon now like the traditional Wendy’s burger and then you have like the cheese at the bottom It looks actually like pretty cool like I’ve numbers I’ve never had a pulled pork burger before like this and you can see that there’s even some like sauce It’s like a tangy sauce. All right, let’s taste this. Hmm I’m definitely good it’s like my lettuce is still crisp. There’s like the pulled pork piece It has like a sweeter seasoning to it it’s a little on the drier side I would like you rather have it kind of like a little bit moist but it’s not kind of dry and it’s like a little bit sour it’s I think it’s it’s almost like a Like a beef jerky, like you had like a truck beef jerky like you do would expect that It was like a little bit more moist Yeah like I was thinking like the bacon would be like a little thicker, but it looks pretty thin and The mania is coming through on the back The mayonnaise and the backlight gives it like the much-needed moisture you want from the burger. Well, that’s pretty good Another nice thing about Wendy’s in their pen is that they have pasta we actually have seven different types of pasta I chose this one like one of the ones I really liked is a carbonara but like the egg on top But this one is that kind of interesting. I wanted to share with you guys. It is like a beef cheek meat It’s like a more like a Bolognese that’s supposed to be also creamy it’s harder to tell because it’s kind of like been sitting here While I’ve been doing this video But so let’s try this I Said oh he didn’t like a regular proper human being That’s nice it does have that creaminess to it it’s a little bit sweet but it has like a tomato base You can definitely taste the onions I don’t know if you can see that little chopped up onions, which are nice So like definitely like the best part about this is the meat. The meat is actually pretty good and the pasta itself I don’t think you can see it, but like see it but it’s like it’s quite thick but soft and filled with moisture and when kids would love this like this the flavors are kind of sweet and like I wouldn’t say bland it, but it’s I can just mellow flavor. No No, I feel like there’s a conducting that special about this pasta Rivlin to like combini pasta I think I don’t know if I’d order this again, I guess is what I’m trying to say. Oh If there’s another menu item that you don’t get an irregular n Easy with a soup bread bowl and we got the lobster bisque They have I have been soups Like beef stew clam chowder and like a regular time to stew but this is a lobster bisque, which is nice Looking back but you can see like the oil that’s like still there. I don’t know if you guys see that Oh and you can definitely smell like the crab lobster this real lobster Can’t be real lobster, right? It smells like Lobster though Hmm and that’s a strong lobster taste Oh, actually this is like surprisingly good I like it You can see it’s quite chunky and the texture is really thick it has some tomatoes in there It’s a little bit kind of bitter I don’t think kids like this necessarily so I wouldn’t serve it to a kid But it’s like more of an adult refined taste. The bread itself is your regular bread bowl What sizes you can I can dip it in like that? Oh And the bread it slides itself, it’s like it’s not dry at all a chewy bread like a moist chewy bread, it’s quite strong So it’s nice to have the bread with it to kind of make it a little less bitter. I really like this one All right, let’s do the blueberry float before it all melts Actually, eleven types of floats that they have in Japan as Matcha, lemonade coffee, mango. There’s so many different kinds Mm-hmm. That’s quite good. Look at that. Just like grab the first bite That’s quite creamy it’s like your regular Soft cream. That’s actually pretty good. I really like the blueberries It’s like a soft cream yogurt was like a blueberry style drink in here. You can like mashed up like that Like a strong yogurt drink taste that isn’t it is more blueberry, but Mm-hmm. It’s actually like if you ever had like a blueberry yogurt, it tastes very much like that. That’s quite refreshing All right So check out this Shiratomic-cream Zenai again sigh but this is like one of those like very traditional Japanese dishes It has like a three main ingredients ice cream It has the red beans and the Shiratama. up some ice cream here at the top Very luscious ice cream as usual but yeah, it’s pretty good. It has this Shiratama I got it almost looks like a mochi but it’s not the ingredients are just a bit different and then it also has anko here which is like a red bean and It’s quite sweet Have you ever had a hollow hollow and that also has these like red beans in it as well It’s kind of funny because I wasn’t expecting Wendy’s to have a traditional Japanese sweets since it has been a collaboration with first kitchen Then you can kind of see it like finer than would have it So, this is the umami Chicken tatsuta burger. It means instead of using flour when they fry it They use cornstarch instead. You can see them there There’s a shredded cabbage But usually when you get out a fried katsu or anything like fried in Japan deep-fried, it usually comes with Shredded cabbage and very very like Japanese. That’s a really thick piece of Chicken looks like I’m kind of surprised how thick it is and then looks like mashed potatoes in there. Look you can see Looks like mashed potatoes, it feels like mashed potatoes, but it’s mayonnaise. It’s like a really thick mayonnaise It’s actually a pretty decent fried chicken and like what I like about it the skin or the the fried part around it is Really thick and hard. It’s an interesting texture to the fried chicken when you like bite into it You can almost like taste like it’s a little bit burnt but it is like it’s extra crispy It’s like it’s crispier than your regular fried chicken. There’s like a hint of garlic in here, too I think it’s the sauce that gives it that umami flavor. I think it’s all in this special sauce They have it’s like too thick to be mayonnaise what I’m wondering that again All right, so for all my low-carb fans, they have a burner called a wild Bronco Basically, they’ve used the meat patties as the buns and inside you have your regular tomato lettuce a big-ass egg In there and then you also have like a tartar sauce. You can see there’s relish even like the egg there Look at that monster Feel like I’m a man, I feel like not I feel like a man. Oh, that’s like a man’s meal just like patties galore Definitely. I think the eggs are kind of one of my favorite things about these burgers The tomatoes are nice Mayonnaise is is like what makes these beef patties really nice like that though with the sauce gives it that moisture it needs. quickly I just want to have this one. This is like the mushroom melt burger There’s nothing too special, but I just wanted to show it to you guys because they don’t have this in the States What’s nice about it? Is that where’s my mushroom? So this is a mushroom melt burger I open it up and I’m like, where’s the mushroom but there’s a mushroom right there You can see being a mushroom melt burger and having only three mushrooms It’s not very good Wendy’s but anyways, it’s just a little bit different I like the melted cheese aspect of it, but it’s very similar to the rest of the the burgers And so these are the fries All right. I think you’re supposed to shake these fries just to like mix it So this is a cocashi butter that’s like a burnt soy sauce butter Mm-hmm. That’s good. That’s that’s actually quite good that really surprised me That’s just it’s like natural saltiness, but it also has a sweetness, which is nice It’s almost like like popcorn they give you add like a caramel popcorn at the same time the fries itself They’re not like that are the best fries. I prefer McDonald’s fries. These are a little like thicker and softer Still fries are fries, and it’s still pretty good All right, so that concludes that Wendy’s menu. Hope you guys like this video liked it helped me out and that like button recently I’ve been sharing a lot of stories on my Instagram will love like what I’m filming and whatnot before these videos come out and definitely check out my Instagram account You want to see more of my guys in Tokyo or Japan hit that subscribe button and the Bell button Alright catch you guys in the next one

  1. Wendy's (First Kitchen) has to be the worst fast food outlet in Japan. Overpriced, small portions. Not any better tasting than the competition.

  2. you should do a video on popular japanese food chains in tokyo, would love to see what you think about places like ichiran.

  3. That's a must for my next visit, we don't have it in the UK so why not have it in Japan haha, great video man. No shame in drifting from McDonald's!

  4. Looks way better than the Wendy's here… lots more options and the yogurt drinks look good too, kind of a lassee (indian type drink which is yummy)

  5. Hello I love your videos. I'll be visiting soon, hopefully you and your girlfriend can show me some interesting eateries.. I'm excited but a little overwhelmed..

  6. Just found your page but I love your videos. We're located in Yokosuka so we'll definitely be trying some of these menu items out.

  7. Damn it! I already left japan.. I saw Wendy first kitchen but I thought it's just some gimmick I didn't know it's joint venture.. would've tried it if this video was up earlier. Post more Paulo!! Btw U should start doing higher end cuisines like Wagyu and omakase, don't forget not all tourists are penny pinchers

  8. Your Vid always make me hungry. Keep it coming Paolo. Can’t wait for my Japan trip. Thanks for all the info.

  9. Really love your videos!!! Definitely gonna try Wendy's First Kitchen when I go back to Japan. Just a little FYI, the Wendy's has Kim Jaejoong's song "Defiance" playing in the background❤❤❤

  10. Paolo, so you're saying, don't order a hamburger in Japan unless you love mayonnaise? Every burger had mayo on it. It's disheartening to those of us who cannot stand mayo.

  11. Every time I watch one of your videos, I think…How did he eat all that? I mean, It looks like you're eating all of it!

  12. Back in the day I used to go to Wendys just for their baked potatoes with sour cream and chives. Nowadays I think Burger King with their new French Fries recipe is the winner – more crispy than Mc fries.

  13. Hello to all, please see our videos for fast, easy and healthy recipes that we are sure you will love. We from the Kitchen Hacks team regularly work on new unique recipes we hope to see and subsribour channel.
    Thank you.

  14. here in the Philippines my favorite menu in Wendy's are their "bacon mushroom melt burger" it's just like an ordinary burger but it has a lot of melty cheese, mushrooms, and bacon uhmm😋😋😋

  15. Jesus Paolo… how much time did you stayed there to eat all this food!? XD BTW new subscriver here. Your content is really nice!

  16. I will be in Japan next week. I can't wait to try Wendy's menu. I don't see the nuggets and chili on their menu, those are my go-to combo. I will definitely try the pasta and the floats.

  17. I like that Lobster Bisque in a bread bowl. Reminds me of the Wendy's in Bangkok. That looks soooooo good. Awesome job again, bruh, keep it up!

  18. maybe it is my upbringing but when p[eople start picking food apart? it just puts me right off, sorry dude

  19. How many times can he say something is "quite good" in one video? lol almost as many times as "pretty good"… but not quite 😉

  20. When I lived in Japan from Dec 93 to Dec 96 I couldn't afford to eat at wendy's if we did have money we would almost always get Japanese food or something local. I did on occasion eat at Subway and we would frequent McDonald's a lot

  21. That drink is yummy. The ice cream is good too. But my favourite is meat patty + fries bun. We need this in the UK.

  22. It's very sad to see windys trying so hard in japan, the food looks so good. In the states they are doing terrible so bad my town lost our windys….now it's a Hispanic restaurant.

  23. Is there a video on Tempera restaurants?? im going to japan in May and i want to find a good Tempera restaurant that you cook at your table.

  24. wendys is bae…. i cant stand dry ass frozen burgers from the king and the clown…. wendys is my only choice for fast food burgers. where im at, wendys burgers are actually juicy

  25. Nice to see that Wendys in Japan can't do a very good job making the burgers either. My local Wendys here in the states can't seem to do anything besides the basic cheeseburger. I'd love to try that garlic mayo. Is there no baked potatoes or chili on the menu?

  26. I never really was gonna eat vegetables in burgers. But now I do. ………Thou, I might revert back to being. Picky

  27. My problem with this channel is i keep watching it late at night and giving me the munchies. Food always look so delicious in this channel

  28. Japan is the only country where I ever wanted to try their fast food. Just because their people are so serious about how the outcome would be and they really did their best. Unlike American.

  29. I had the burnt butter soy sauce fries and a Wild Rock while I was there this month. Pretty darn tasty, I have to say. And the mentaiko sauce is pretty good, too. I wish it was spicier, though.

  30. Even though the Japanese Wendy’s mushroom melt burger only had three mushrooms it’s still better than American Wendy’s lol .

  31. What’s your secret to stay in shape even you eat a lot!????

    I love watching your videos. It makes me feel hungry and wanna be there so badddd.

  32. Thank You for sharing. I need more ideas to take my young kids. A lot of restaurants I want to check out but Most of them are so small. There will be 12 of us.

  33. ウェンディーズぢゃん!!
    日本上陸の際にリサーチしたよー。
    最初の頃は店内ステンドグラスで暗くて全然売れなくてマーケティング駆使して大改造したんだよなー(笑)

  34. Just because I liked this video review does not constitute an endorsement of Wendy's. I think it would be healthier to eat at a conbini. Paolo, you are really good at illustrating the sites you visit. Thank you!
