  • Hey guys, it's Mike Chen after I did the 7-Eleven video in Taiwan

  • A lot of you guys messaged me and told me that there's actually a lot of great food at the 7-Eleven

  • here in Japan and I got to give it a try.

  • So this morning for brunch, we're going to eat at a 7-Eleven.

  • So this is the nearest one around my hotel

  • 7 & I Holdings. I'm so hungry for 7-Eleven food.

  • I'm actually really excited because I'm starving and

  • Just, just from my Taiwan 7-Eleven experience. I'm expecting good things. So this aisle

  • cleaning supply, stationaries, office supplies.

  • I don't know what this is, but this looks good

  • The ramen aisle, I gotta try some ramen cuz there's a lot

  • Called - um, [chao da sheng] it's like a big plate

  • I have no idea what this is

  • UFO

  • That looks good. You gotta get some 7-Eleven dried squid. Oh my god

  • I know I'm skipping ahead a little bit to dessert but look at this freakin puff.

  • Oh what in the world is?

  • Sure. And they got a section of like just a bunch of soups.

  • It's like clam soup

  • seaweed soup

  • Vegetable soup and go for some of this tofu soup.

  • The massive green tea cookie haha, sure

  • and this where you can get salads and the bacon that goes on top of your salads or

  • Or the chicken that goes on top of your salads. Egg

  • Tofu

  • Alright, here is the already made stuff.

  • Ooh, look how much meat is in this?

  • And I heard good things about these egg sandwiches.

  • Oh, I loved onigiris, let's get a salmon one

  • This also sounds really good, spicy roll with cream cheese.

  • Hmm also gonna get it one of these.

  • Look at all these bento boxes here

  • Oh my gosh

  • Oh wow

  • This looks a lot better than the train bento I got last time I was in Japan

  • Wow, this looks pretty awesome. I'm not really sure what this is.

  • Looks like some fried chicken or pork.

  • I'm back in the ramen aisle.

  • I'll check this out. This is the Tsuta that this is the Michelin star ramen place

  • I went to a couple days ago.

  • I got to try this and we can't forget the drinks

  • I've been loving this tea, since I got to Japan and this one looks good.

  • Melon water. Melon ice cream. Whatever

  • And they also have a bunch of already prepared dishes like from fried chicken, fried pork, a corndog.

  • Some buns, looks like quite a lot of buns, looks like some pork,

  • This thing looks like it has some cheese in there

  • You know what, just one of each

  • Ooh fish cake

  • So yeah, this will be brunch

  • [Chuckle]

  • So here we are. Um

  • It's a quite a meal. Let's dig in shall we?

  • Oh so this is a curry bun right here, look at that

  • That is really curry, that has a really good curry flavor. Buns really surprise me at 7-Eleven

  • It's cheesy, that is a pretty fantastic curry bun.

  • With the buns, I gotta have some soup

  • So let me try the miso soup out. So this one has look at this

  • A bunch of dry ingredients

  • scallions, tofu

  • seaweed, and this one

  • Has the miso, I'm actually glad it's not like a powder.

  • And of course the 7-Eleven has hot water

  • This cup has a line that I guess you fill it up to

  • There you go, give that a little stir,

  • tofu is softening, so is my seaweed

  • Just as I thought, if you serve this to me at a restaurant

  • I wouldn't question you.

  • The vegetables actually crunchy, so is the seaweed.

  • The tofu, extremely gentle and soft. It tastes like a legit tofu

  • Actually, super tender tofu that someone just added to this miso soup

  • Now we can get on with our buns.

  • Wow. Look at this.

  • Oh man, it's some kind of mystery meat. It's all like, okay, there's definitely some cheese in here

  • And I don't know that white stuff is.

  • Mmm, it's potatoes!

  • Wow

  • This bun is amazing.

  • Oh my god.

  • This is so incredibly awesome. This bun, seriously guys.

  • It's got these potatoes, it's got cheese. That's insanely delicious.

  • Let's keep going, got about four of these buns left.

  • That is really pumpkin looking one. Oh

  • What is that? Oh!

  • Some cheese in there, too

  • There's something red

  • Mmm

  • It's a pizza bun, marinara sauce inside and cheese.

  • Gotta tell you the truth

  • Ain't half-bad. I mean I wish there's some pepperoni in here or something

  • but

  • It's interesting

  • Really not bad.

  • Finally the last bun, ah this is, I think this is a dessert bun.

  • Look at this, I'm pretty sure yep

  • That's red bean paste. Oh look at that

  • Mm-hmm red bean paste.

  • I wish I saved this for the end, but a lot of filling, not overly sweet

  • I dig it

  • That will go awesome with some green tea

  • Oh it does.

  • All right. I got to get some noodles in me. So

  • mmm

  • Let's try the Michelin star ramen. Wow

  • Look how fancy this thing is, oh my god

  • I never seen this before in my life.

  • This ramen has a piece of dried pork belly on the inside.

  • That is insane.

  • I'm just gonna add. Okay.

  • So this is, I think this is a soy sauce based sauce that I'm adding here

  • This is a real piece of pork belly

  • Oh my gosh

  • By the way

  • A little hack for you, using disposable chopsticks to keep your ramen lid secure.

  • These noodles look borderline

  • pretty darn ridiculous. Look at this.

  • I'll tell you guys what, this is easily the highest quality ramen noodle I've ever had in my life.

  • You can tell from the broth itself

  • Wow, the broth is so insanely flavorful.

  • Here's the pork. Let's see how this is, I'm not expecting much here.

  • Wow

  • It was melty. I can't believe I'm saying that about a pork that came out of a plastic bag.

  • The bamboo

  • Mmm, you hear that?

  • This is legit, guys.

  • Ooh. Chase that with a little melon water

  • This is pretty darn good.

  • So I got this big tofu thing, look at it. It looks like a pouch

  • There's stuff in this tofu wallet, check it out

  • Look at this, there's something. I'm not really sure what this is... hang on

  • Mmm, it's mochi, big piece of mochi in this tofu wallet

  • Wow dip this in this broth here.

  • Delicious but oh so heavy now.

  • Finally this like

  • Sea monster noodle looking thingy

  • I forgot what we called this in Chinese but these noodles we eat this a lot at hotpot.

  • It has zero calories, which is insane.

  • I love eating this, literally no calories, you can eat as much as you want.

  • It's like freaking witchcraft and it actually tastes good.

  • Here we go, soak a little bit of my ramen broth

  • Seriously, everything just tastes better in my ramen broth.

  • Alright, I heard really good things about the egg sandwich

  • It's called a tamago sandwich. At first glance, this is a pretty

  • Nice-looking sandwich. I mean the eggs-- pretty beautiful color and

  • Bread seems really bouncy and nice

  • That's a great egg sandwich. Wow

  • I mean this thing is creamy, it's eggy and just wonderfully flavored

  • Gotta give some props to the bread as well.

  • This thing is so light

  • Wow, let's get to our bento boxes

  • So the bento box has come with instructions. This one

  • 500 watt for two minutes, or 1500 watt for 40 seconds

  • And this one is 500 watt 3 minutes, 1500 watt 1 minute.

  • So here are the microwaves

  • Okay, this is done

  • Wow

  • That actually looks ridiculously good. Fatty beef, all juicy.

  • This too - yeah

  • Looking good against the fake grass.

  • Underneath, you have the nice rice... I'm thinking...

  • You have caramelized onions

  • Guys, this is awesome

  • Hmm. That beef is ridiculously flavorful.

  • The sauce is a little sweet, very savory, slightly fatty.

  • Look how well that's playing with the rice right now.

  • I mean, this is 7-Eleven food. Can you believe it?

  • I mean the meat actually tastes like really good quality!

  • This, for like four bucks. This is a pretty good lunch.

  • That meat is so good. Alright, half the stuff is mysterious to me.

  • Let's.. let's figure out what this yellow thing is?

  • Yes, I think it's eggs, like sweet eggs.

  • Yeah, that's eggs, sweet eggs, not my favorite.

  • On the other side is some kind of pork

  • That's also a little sweet.

  • I'm kind of sensing that the theme of this dish right now.

  • Let's just go back to this

  • Never go wrong with this.

  • You know, a little hot oil, mm

  • Starbucks sparkling water with green coffee extract

  • I'm not really sure what I just drank.

  • I don't, I don't drink coffee much. But what the heck is a green coffee extract?

  • Alright, dessert time [bg: kids cheering]

  • It's a strawberry cream sandwich

  • Just like with the egg sandwich, beautiful bread, really nice and gentle

  • You need this. Wow, I mean...

  • This is truly ridiculous.

  • So looks like inside, not only whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and some sort of yellow custard

  • Mmm. Only Japanese people will make something that's obviously a dessert into a sandwich

  • And make it insanely awesome.

  • Oh! Whipped cream custard is milky, and sweet.

  • The bread acts like a perfect, perfect vessel for all that creaminess

  • Trust me, you need one of these sandwiches

  • And just when you think like it's a little too creamy, a little too sweet. Oh

  • The strawberry bursts in your mouth and makes everything okay.

  • That's a 7-Eleven matcha cookie.

  • Well, it looks like white chocolate chunks

  • That's a pretty darn good cookie

  • A lot of good matcha flavor in this cookie

  • You know what might make this better. Hang on.

  • Oh man, five seconds and this thing is already hot

  • Wow, oh yeah, that's the way to enjoy this matcha cookie. Microwave it. Oh my god

  • That just got extra yummified

  • This little taco looking matcha thingy

  • So the outside it's kind of like a

  • like a really fluffy bun

  • and on the inside, matcha ice cream.

  • Oh and red bean sauce, really?

  • Can't imagine this being that good

  • This is pretty good

  • So it's not ice cream.

  • The inside, it's actually like a matcha cream, and the red bean paste

  • It's kind of covering all of it

  • If you're a matcha fan

  • Or a red bean fan or of both, you'll love this

  • and this for me,

  • great way to wrap up my meal

  • And that thing goes pretty good with my green tea

  • So my favorite thing today definitely the Michelin star instant noodles, hundred percent absolutely delicious

  • I love my fatty beef over rice

  • Actually, I think most of the bento box looked really good, but I could only try out a couple.

  • Love the first two buns I tried and oh my god that strawberry sandwich.

  • I just, that thing stole my heart and guys

  • This is not the end because there's there's a convenience store that's in Japan that supposed to be better than 7-Eleven called Lawson

  • That is supposed to be even better. Let's go check them out

  • Hi, so I was supposed to continue with the exploration of the convenience stores in Japan

  • but I took a few days in between and now I am at...

  • Sorry that's

  • And now I'm at Lawson.

  • Now supposedly what I what I've researched was that

  • Lawson is really known for a few things.

  • One, their freshly fried chicken.

  • And two, their selection of dessert items.

  • So let's go check it out.

  • Drink section. There's the ramen section

  • First of all, this udon is supposed to be really, really good and I need to get this

  • Yogurt water.. Sure.

  • Alright, this is something that's pretty exclusive to Lawson

  • Well natural Lawson, which is they're like really healthy slash organic brand.

  • These are the collections of smoothie and yogurts

  • They also got like a selection of baked goods. Oh

  • Look at that

  • Ooh, I learned in Japan any time you see a melon, you get it

  • Oh, what in the name is... Oh look... Wow

  • You know what? Sure.

  • This is a mochi roll. This comes highly, highly recommended.

  • Apparently, Anthony Bourdain loves the egg salad here in Lawson

  • So let's get that...

  • Actually, they got two different types of egg salads. I'm gonna get both.

  • Also, I heard you gotta get some pudding.

  • That's good. This is not exclusive to Lawson, but it's insanely cool.

  • So the first day I was in Japan I bought these

  • what seemed like I thought they were dessert items
