[Big band music] Simon: Guys, you know we love sushi. We’ve done videos about sushi before. We even made 29 episodes of a segment called ‘Eat Your Sushi’. Martina: When we found out there was a restaurant in Tokyo called – you ready for this? – Itamae Sushi, (a pun for Eat My Sushi) we were like, “This is destiny.” S: We MUST film here. M: We must go to this place. S: I – it – it calls me. It calls me. [gentle piano music] [rock music] S: OoooOOOhhh. Cute little bow. [anime-style villain music] *claps sticks* Head waiter: (in Japanese) Guests have arrived.(?)
Staff: (in Japanese) Please come (in)! M: This is so crazy. Guys. As you can see, Itamae Sushi is absolutely gorgeous. [record scratch] S: Oooh. Our sake’s here. M: We’re gonna get back to you in a second~ [sultry music] M: (autotuned to creepy porn voice) Oooh yeah. Pour that sake. Just keep going. Just keep going. Oh yeah. Overflow that sake all over the place. OH JUST LIKE THAT. Oooh, I’m gonna drink you so good. (normal voice) Guys, can you see how unbelievably beautiful this restaurant is? S: This is gorgeous. [jazz music] M: Now there’s a reason why it’s called ‘Itamae Sushi Edo’. S: Edo. M: It’s the Edo time period so everything here is themed that way. Which is why they offer you ikatas. S: Uhuh. M: Even the lockers have that amazing locking system. S: Yeah. M: Not only does this place have awesome sushi, it also has a really unique assortment of sushi. S: Mmhmm. M: They have a lot of, like, amazing ways of laying it out – S: Right. – and some kind of, like, original dishes that I’ve never seen before on a menu. S: So that’s what I’m excited to try today. They have lots of different kinds of sushi that I’ve never seen before. M: Even, like, fusion-y looking things. S: And I’m really interested to see how creative they can get. [music] S: This is amazing. M: Oh my god. Oh – it’s not done yet! Chef: Sauce. S: Soy sauce. Chef: Yes. S: Nice. M: Wow. S: Hey, can I get all of my food served to me on a paddle? M: From now on, is all I’m saying. S: And this is the part of the video in which Martina’s gonna take LOTS of B-Cam shots. M: What? S: And I’m not gonna be able to eat for a while. M: Listen. Don’t you guys wanna see close-up shots of all this delicious fish? S: You just want us to eat. Vote now. S: Do you wanna see the food shots or do you want to see me eat? M: No. Look. Look at this. [sexy food porn music] S: Martina has tortured me enough. It is time for us to finally eat. [sexy food porn music] S: Martina has tortured me enough. [sexy food porn music] S: Martina has – [sexy food porn music] S: It is time for us to finally eat. S: What great about sashimi? Low carb. M: Super low carb. S: Super low carb. M: Thanks for bringing that up. I’m just gonna start at the top, here. S: Yeah, let’s work our way down. M: This to me looks like some beautiful, delicious, magic tuna. Right here. S: Oh yeah. Here we go. S: That was great. M: Hey. I’ll fight you to the death for the last piece. S: Rock, paper, scissors. The only fair way. M: Oh my god. S & M: Jan-ken-pon! Jan-ken-pon! Jan-ken-pon! (Simon cries) M: O-hohohoh. M: I know you like tuna the best so I’ll give it to you, ducky. I give it to you because I love you. [lion growl] M: I really wanted that tuna. S: You pressured me. (gleefully) Mmmmm. M: Ooh. I’ve never had this as a sashimi before. S: This is udoburo(?). M: And they gently, actually, seared it on top with a little bit of fire. Here we go. S & M: Mmmmm. S & M: Mmmmm. M: That tastes a bit like chicken. Doesn’t it? S: It’s the little grilling on top. M: Now, grilling on top gives it that little barbecue flavour. S: So this is the first time I’m ever seen shrimp like this. This is a really big… M: Whoa. So they de-shelled it for you. S: This is scary, but I’m gonna try it like this. M: Don’t drip it all over yourself. S: Mmmmm. M: Is it sweet? S: Mmhmm. I love cooked shrimp but this is great. Whoa. I was hesitant, but was a great idea. [big band music] M: Now I have some important historical information to tell you. (nasally) My glasses. So, you guys saw that when they poured my sake, it overflowed into this little wooden box. And traditionally, you would actually serve sake in these wooden boxes, which the cedar added flavour to the sake. But some places won’t serve a woman the wooden box. If they do, they’ll serve, like, a lacquered box instead. Wee, it turns out the reason they don’t is because our lipstick or our lip stain will actually go into the wood – S: And damage the wood. – and affect it. And so if you don’t get served one of these boxes, don’t be offended. That’s simply because they don’t want you to ruin the box. (Waiter comes with more sake). S: OH YES. S: More sake. M: Good thing I’m not wearing lipstick. S: OH THIS IS AMAAAZING. M: This is something I’m really excited to try. S: I’ve never had this before. M: I’ve never even seen this on a menu before. S: Okay. M: They – S: (hears sticks clap) OH WAIT. M: Wait. You got excited. *applause* M: Every time. S: It pleases me every time. M: This is deep fried sea urchin. And it’s been wrapped in seaweed.This look awesome. S: I’m so pumped. M: I(‘ve) just never even heard of doing it this way. This is A LOT of sea urchin, son. S: Are you ready? M: Okay. S: Here we go. S: Mmm. Uni (sea urchin) on it’s own can be overwhelming to some people but I think just a little bit of salt and the crunchiness of the tempura batter and the seaweed makes it a lot easier if you’ve never tried uni before. M: I’ve also never had it warm. S: Yeah. Never had it warm uni before. M: Never had it warm. S: Mmm. [jazz music] S: OHHH. M: WOOOW. S: This is exciting here. M: Oh my god, guys. M: Okay. S: This is thrilling to me. M: Is this gonna be the world’s BEST fish and chips of our life? S: This is sushi-style – M: Fish and chips. – wow. M: (creepy porn voice) Oooh. You thought I was done? I’ll never be done with you, food. I’ll never be done with you, baby girl. Never. [Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik] S: Oh my god. M: That’s ridiculous. S: That is the best fish and chip I’ve ever had.
M: Why did I have this? S: Halibut? M: This is like a life-ruining – that’s one of experiences where you eat it and you’re, like, you can never go back to fish and chips ever again. S: England was WRONG. I never thought I would go to a sushi place and have the best fish and chips in my life. M: The Edo period. Did they serve fish and chips? They were ahead of their time. S: They were. S: So what you’re saying is, Britain – S & M: COPIED JAPAN. S: WHAT?! If you just want great fish and chips, don’t look for any pubs in Tokyo. M: Itamae Sushi Edo and come for the fish and chips. S: Just come here for the fish and chips. [rock music] M: WOW. Sugoi. This is AMAZING! S: I don’t even know how you eat this. Okay. They gave us extra soy sauce-s but it’s just for me and Martina. *laughs nervously* S: I’m not sure what to do with it. M: (creepy porn voice) Oooh. Oh yeah. Just like that. Go with your bad self, sushi. (normal voice) I’m gonna go in for the – no, wait. Hang on. Oh, there’s rolls under here! S: ARE THERE ROLLS UNDER THERE?! M: Look. S: Aaah. M: Oh. My god. S: Did you even save any uni for me? M: Oh. I took, like, seven rolls. S: Yeah, gurl. I GOT TWO HERE! That’s why I can’t take Martina out anywhere. M: Okay, I’ll put some back. S: She doesn’t know how to behave herself. M: I’m sorry. Sumimasen. S: So these are a whole bunch of little, tiny, cucumber rolls and they put a whole bunch of fish on top. M: WO – Okay. S: Martina took seven at once. M: This is, like, the world’s most generous maki roll in the entire planet. S: Now I understand. There you go. There is nothing glamorous about this. M: But it’s luxurious. S: But everything is alright. S: Mmm. M: Oh yeah. M: ‘Cruni’. M: A new thing. Copyright 2016, Simon and Martina/
