Hey guys! This is my new friend Anisha! She has a channel called Rickshawali I will link it down below so go check her out, she’s really funny and awesome!! And she’s here in Japan, for the first time We had lots of fun in Harajuku earlier And she hasn’t really tried much Japanese food, right? No How long have you been here? About 9 days 9 days, okay Have you seen an onigiri before? Is that the rice thing? Yep it’s a rice ball I guess the English would be rice ball, even though it’s not a ball Why is it called a ball? It’s not a ball, it’s a rice triangle Well that’s interesting Now, do you know how to open this? I will just do it, I will just do it NO STOP IT NO There’s a certain way to do it So if you look at the package, there’s a number 1 up at the top here This? It’s written in Japanese how am I supposed to read that Right there right there, the number 1 Haha I’m like “I can’t read Japanese!” Just ignore the letters So pull the #1 down like this Oh wow!! And make sure you do it nicely so it goes all the way to the back Omg this is so cool! Pull it all the way back? Okay Yeah you’re doing good! That’s so convenient! And then you’ve got two corners left So take the #2 on this side and just pull it off Oh god that’s literally like magic Niiiice That’s awesome wow! And the other side Okay There you go! Hey that’s cool! So the point of the package is so that it keeps the seaweed separate from the rice So that the seaweed doesn’t get mushy NO WAY. So now you’ve got a fresh dry piece of seaweed on the rice So now you can kind of like curve it around and cover it up Wow that is so smart So you can get all different kinds of fillings in onigiri This is the most typical one, it’s called “tsuna mayo” tsuna mayo Yeah so its tuna and mayonnaise In there!? Yeah Ooo…. I’ve never had tuna and mayonnaise Really!? Because I’m hungry… We’re so hungry right now Very hungry, we haven’t eaten the entire day Since breakfast Is this like the best thing you’ve ever had? SO GOOD. No… Well… I have to say, I’m not a seaweed person Right Cuz it has a little fishy taste It tastes very simple, I can’t taste it If you get to the middle, there’ll be more tuna It’s not very flavourful Yeah, that’s why I like the tuna one because it’s really subtle Like if you’re new to onigiri, and you’re kinda worried and don’t want a super fishy one I’d say go for the tuna mayo It’s a flavour that Americans would be used to I’m from India where we have crazy spices, everything is spicy it has amazing, not amazing, but like crazy explosions of flavours So this is like really subtle to you? So this is like, whoa where is the flavour I’m half, well not half but I grew up in Germany and I’m living in India now So I have the understanding of flavours like this But from an Indian point of view this is like, where is the flavour?? It has no flavour in it But it’s actually nice I feel with Japanese food there’s a combination There’s really subtle stuff like onigiri, and then sometimes you’ll get really salty stuff Which actually we’re gonna try next So maybe you’ll wanna save some of your onigiri Oh is it? You’re gonna want something to eat with this I think What is that? I just read Family Mart All of these things I bought from Family Mart Family Mart is the name of the convenience store What… Oh my goodness Do you know what it is? Let me put this down for a sec Can you tell what it is by looking at it? Oh hell She’s worried This looks like a brain of something It totally does I’m not that mean You’re not giving me a brain Sharla? No brain, I promise You’re feeding me like a guest? It’s actually fruit It’s a fruit!? Can you tell what it is? There’s water in it too It’s pickled It’s a pickled plum A pickled plum? Ok you know those weird Indian candies that you gave us today? They reminded me of this Oh really? I’m curious to see if you’ll like the flavour I have a question, people go into the store and buy one plum? Yeah and the eat it! It’s common to get this, and some rice and eat it with the rice Because this is really salty and really flavourful and you’re gonna want something bland to go with it Ok so you don’t eat it alone like a snack on the road I don’t, I definitely don’t. I like it with rice But I’m sure there are people that do Ok all right You don’t want this all over your pants You’re gonna smell bad It doesn’t get out of my pants? Oh god Do I take it with my hands? Yeah why not There should be a pit in the middle It’s very mushy, it’s like I’m doing surgery right now It’s the heart of the patient It totally looks like a heart It looks like a heart! So do I put the entire thing in? No just take a little bit, I feel like the flavour is gonna be really strong Just take a little bite out of it See what you think No? Does it remind you of those candies though? A little Hajmola, in India we have something very famous called Hajmola It’s a digestive pill, you should try it (No you shouldn’t try it!!) It’s actually nice! It’s weird… like the first bite you take is so sour And then it turns into a very interesting… like nice The aftertaste becomes very soothing, not soothing but Like now I feel like eating it again Refreshing kind of? Yeah! I really like it It’s very strange I wanna eat it, I’m taking very little bites because it’s sour I like sour things Yeah if you like sour stuff you’ll definitely like it I like it, I really do The first one was crazy After that it was fine, I really like it This is one of the things that foreigners don’t like Like one of the Japanese foods that foreigners are like, why do they eat thisss So here’s the thing, I’m not really American Like I know Indian food So you’re used to really flavourful stuff And we use a sweet and sour taste This is like a sweet and sour, so Yeah I like this Enjoy your rice ball Check out Anisha’s channel!!
