  • TOKYO, Japan is one of the world’s gastronomic paradises. In this video we’re HUNTING down LOCAL spots and eating where the LOCALS EAT. We visit a popular spot for tonkatsu and Japanese curry and then check out a conveyor belt sushi restaurant with an impeccable reputation. Get ready for some mouthwatering food.

    ***********************************************************************
    Our first stop is for tonkatsu- breaded, deep fried pork cutlets which are a must eat when in Japan. Ponchi-ken hold a Michelin Bib Gourmand 2017 award for their Okinawan pork cutlets which are breaded in a light panko crumb and deep fried to golden perfection. The pork is juicy and flavoursome and together with the accompanying rice and fresh, shredded cabbage, makes for a memorable meal. We suggest visiting at lunch time when the prices are more affordable for their rosu katsu set meal and where their katsu curry is on offer. Tonkatsu, half a soft boiled egg, piles of thinly shaved cabbage, pickles, rice and a thick, spicy curry sauce that will have you weeping with pleasure. Don't miss this!
    We then head to a conveyor belt sushi restaurant for a sushi feast. Sushi trains can be a really affordable way to enjoy sushi in a city where it can be one of the most expensive meals to eat. Hanamaru balances affordability with excellent quality fish. It's said that Hanamaru (fish) buyers are so well respected in the trade that they have special access to top quality fish at Tsukiji fish market. The restaurant is located on the tenth floor of the Tokyu Plaza building in Ginza so you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city whilst you dine. Their aburi salmon, roasted eel and fatty minced tuna sushi are especially worth eating. English menus are provided and staff are very friendly.
    Where we ate:
    Tonkatsu and katsu kare at Ponchi-ken, 2-8 Kanda-Ogawamachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. Open Mon to Tue 11:15am to 3:00pm; Wed to Sat 11:15am to 2:00pm, 5:30pm-9:00pm / closed Sun and 3rd Mon of every month
    Conveyor belt sushi at Hanamaru, Japan, 〒104-0061 Tokyo, 中央区銀座5丁目2−1 東急プラザ銀座B2F. Open daily 11:00 to 10:00pm.

    Why didnt u use wasabi on your sushi

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  11 months ago

      Hi CHUCKIE’S BRIDE, thanks for watching and we hope you enjoyed the video! Sometimes we don’t use wasabi on certain pieces of sushi eg the grilled eel sushi, because we don’t feel it needs it 😄 We just want to savour the flavour of the fish, sauce and rice without it. This was such a great sushi meal- can’t wait to return! Cheers, Sheena

      I do. I also loved it in Japan too. I was there back in 2011 when that big earthquake happened. Still loved it. Was there for 3 weeks. I want to go back soon, maybe by early next year sometime. :)

    I love watching you guys. And the sushi meal was fun to watch but I must admit to being slightly disappointed that you put soy sauce on everything. Some things sure, but others are made the way they are without the need for extra soy like the eel or the grilled salmon that already has sauce on it. The wasabi rice shouldn't't have soy on it because there is no fish and the soy goes on the meat. You lose the delicate flavor to the much stronger soy. When you put soy on everything it all starts to taste the same and it diminishes the experience. I'm not one of those stickers to a rigid protocol. Food should be fun and how you enjoy it. It just disappointed me to see it. Good video though. Thanks for showing the conveyors. I hope to see one in person some day.

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago

      Hi Michelle, thanks for watching! Thomas and I won't ever pretend like we're experts in every cuisine that we eat and film and Japanese food culture is definitely one that we would love to learn more about- especially sushi etiquette. I think Thomas did say specifically when he was eating the eel that he wasn't putting any soy on it as it had its own sauce but I appreciate the point you are making. It saddens me that you'd be disappointed by us but I'm happy that you made this comment as it helps us learn and when we're next in Japan this is something we can be mindful of as it will no doubt enhance our experience! Hope you enjoy the rest of the Japan series 😄 Cheers, Sheena

    Is there anything else to drink in these conveyor belt places? Or is it all just green tea?

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago

      Melissa Tunnell you absolutely have to try it 😄 it’s delicious!! 😍 whereabouts in the US do you live? Eating sushi in Japan is pretty mind blowing- the level of quality is really good and you the conveyor belt sushi restaurants offer so much choice- you could also order hot food at this one, like fried chicken 😋 The game restaurant sounds fun!! So glad you enjoyed the video 🤗 Hope you are having a great weekend! Cheers, Sheena

      @Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena ty. I have never eaten sushi before, but I have really been into watching these conveyor belt sushi videos. So I kind of wanted to try it. I live in America, but I want to try real Japanese sushi. Your video was great. Have you ever been to the sushi place that has the game? 5 plates gets you a chance to win something.

      Shimokitazawa is such an awesome part of Tokyo!! We loved that area too and found a great Japanese burger and hot dog in Naka Meguro a suburb nearby. That one's coming up in our next video 😆 It is an amazing place to explore- never enough time though 😝 Cheers, Sheena

    I've been seeing a lot about banning single use plastic, in particular,drinking straws and chop sticks ...have you seen the new edible ones they are talking about.

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago +1

      Hi SaRaH Kruch, like you we've been seeing a lot about the edible ones on social media and the like but have never come across them. When we were in Indonesia some of the more upmarket restaurants we visited were using straws made from compostable materials so that was good to see. Single use plastic is such a problem in a lot of the countries we travel in. Often when you say you don't need a bag you still get given it as it's simply not understood why you wouldn't want one! 😳 Cheers, Sheena

    I was joining in with the “oh my gosh that looks amazings”. There’s never too many superlatives when it comes to good food. 😆 I always order the unagi when we go out and have it all to myself as no one else likes it. 😄 And we always end up with an embarrassing stack of plates at the end of a sushi train meal. 🤣 The tonkatsu looked mouthwatering. The Japanese are masters of balance... along with many, many other things. 💕

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena We usually go to Sakura Kaiten in Little Collins Street. We also check them out when we travel as we all love sushi. We tried a few in Japan and they were outrageously good. x

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago

      I am the Queen of superlatives 😂😅 LUCKY you getting to eat all of the unagi! We always have to order more as both of us adore it. Where do you usually go for sushi train in Melbourne? That tonkatsu was incredible. We tried to get back there for a second meal but ran out of time. I am determined to have that katsu curry on our next visit- it was insanely good. I think about it often and I only had one mouthful 😂 Thanks for watching and commenting Jennifer! Cheers, Sheena

    The difference between your very first kaitenzushi and this place is noticeable. Only slightly more expensive here yet the quality is loads higher. And $30 for 15 plates is so affordable. I'd be tempted to eat sushi train every day. 😀👍

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago +2

    Yum, yum yum! Japanese food always remains my favourite food mainly because of its raw fish (my ultimate favourite is salmon) and tempura. 🤤🤤🤤😋😋😋👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

      The conveyor belt sushi restaurant serves better sushis than the the ones we have in Malaysia. The sushis you and Thomas picked out are so yummy, especially the ones with the raw quail's egg in it. The sea produce are so fresh, as fresh as you can get! Yummy!!! 🤤🤤🤤😋😋😋👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Japanese food is served so chic. Presentation is as important as the taste !!! feast for all the senses. It’s what I would consider “delicate “ presentation, invite me for dinner lol. I am so impressed . Thomas when you ate the raw quail egg sushi your face expression was worth watching lol you were so expressive. I wish I was right with you . 🇨🇦

    • Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena
      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena  Year ago

      Absolutely Lois Blais- I agree. And you're right- Japanese meals are always presented so beautifully. That quail egg sushi was such a great texture- the egg yolk complemented the fatty salmon perfectly. So glad you enjoyed this one Lois Blais. Thanks for watching and for taking the time to comment 😄😄😄 Cheers, Thomas

    Oh, guys! What an amazing video! I've been gripped by serious anxiety attacks for the last few weeks, and my stomach has been in knots. I haven't been able to eat for days...but this video has made me hungry, and I'm going to try to eat something. I wish I could be in Tokyo and have tonkatsu and sushi, but I may have to make do with bread and butter. Thank you for doing what you do. It means more than you know to many of us out here. ♥

      Hi MsKestrela, that doesn't sound fun at all- I don't think people really realise how paralysed you can feel when you're gripped by anxiety. You feel incapable of doing anything.

      Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena it's definitely the raw fish that scares me. I probably would eat it if it had cooked fish but Im weird I don't like fish that taste like fish 😖.
