    But please don’t wipe off the “white dusty stuff” that’s on the kelp, it’s like natural msg. It will give your broth so much flavor

    Chef, what do you call the technique of sprinkling the tempura batter over the vegetables when frying?

    Classy bit of double dipping from the "chef" on the right. Call them out on it John. It's always the scruffy ones...

    I would definitely like to see a video on pricing! One of the things about the food industry that is apparently less than obvious. :)

    looks mouthwatering but its no more then 6 quid john...come on

  • Von Kellef
    Von Kellef Year ago

    Mate, 12 pounds? I mean come on. I usually say you under charge but a plate of veggies for 12 pounds, that is waaaaaay to much. 6£ sounds about enough.

  • Gary Lawton
    Gary Lawton Year ago

    This is literally the 1st FB video I’ve disliked! What a shame! I saw the Tempura and was hopeful but no sign of meat or fish? £12 is way too much as others have said! Also, finally but not least, Zucchini! It’s the Uk John so it’s Courgette! 😉

  • Danger Zone

    12 is overpriced. Nevertheless, tempura came out fantastic.

  • brakjart

    12 pounds for fried vegetables is waaaay too much, regardless if it's a main or an entree or whatever.

    Just out of interest mate, is this all you do in terms of work or do you run a restaurant or something as well? Can’t believe you don’t have more subs!

    Couldn't you just incorporate with a whisk? Seems that it would be easier than 4 chopsticks, if you already used to it.

  • Yearn Rommel
    Yearn Rommel Year ago

    12 pounds is just ridiculous. i mean im sure what u say is true and u really gotta get the tempura right and the technique and stuff, but in the end its a few slices of vegetables and some leaves fried in a mixture of flour, egg and water. if the portion is really generous and its really good, maybe some vegetarians are gonna pay 7 pounds for that.

    Mate, grab the korean beef ribs n wrap it with the shiso leaf n bits of kimchi. It's life changing!
    And 12 quid for plate of fried vegs, sorry mate. Would pay 8, max =)

    Looks scrummy but way out at £12. The people have spoken lol.

  • Miquel Torres
    Miquel Torres Year ago

    There's no way anyone would pay 12 quid for a plate of tempura veggies in the street. You should've seen that one coming, Busker! They look delicious, though. That's for sure. You could've priced it at 6 quid for half a portion and they'd have flown off your hands.

    Life is based on believe but if your meal taste bad my believes can't change the taste so is life. If you are interested in making as much as $100,000 per month and a minimum of $35,000 per week then this is for you. If it can't be done then it can't be thought, I have always wanted a way out of my 9am-5pm life and for years I couldn't because of my loved ones, but fate smiled on me and I saw a post about a hacker who helps those in need of financial aid and I got in touch with him immediately and we exchanged some few words that reshaped my thinking, and we started working together and in my first week I made $35,000 and in the week after, I told my friends about this and they benefitted from it too, if you are interested in this his contact info is: parachutelift(at)gmail(dot)com. Tell him I referred you to him.

    You over priced that sooo much bunch of vegetables in batter. I'm sure it was good but 12 quid for a plate. If it was a enough for 2 then OK but 12 quod for a burger and chips and beans is quite a lot for street lrice

  • Derek Warner
    Derek Warner Year ago

    If there were a few shrimp it would have been 10+ easy, but you just cant sell vegetables for that much on the street. Great video love the japanese stuff!

  • SandrineSmiles VF
    SandrineSmiles VF Year ago +2

    For that whole plate of veggies, I'd pay 10 pounds, or maybe 12 euros max (not sure of conversion rate) . Still looks yummy and if you charged 12 pounds I'd get a plate just for the heck of it :P

  • Harry Longmore

  • Mark Leon

    hahaha went too crazy John... nobody will pay 12 quid for it, especially without a crispy prawn and some rice... good try though. I would love to see you doing a vid about sashimi and how to source good fish in UK or just a Tamagoyaki recipe #Foodbuskerchallenge

  • Gfrommy

    I would like to see a pricing episode. Coming from the USA and managing a restaurant I am having a hard time figuring how you are doing your some of your food pricing. It could be some of the things in the overhead category are throwing things off for me. Overall it could be vastly different for the UK. I would like to see something the breakdown in ingredients cost first so the home cook can get an idea of what it should cost to make something, then a cost for a good restaurant including all the overhead and markup for a final menu cost. For a Vegetable Tempura entree from the Japanese restaurants in my area is about 12 USD = 8.5 GBP that comes with the normal entree stuff miso soup, garden salad and white rice.

    This channel has continued to improve and I enjoy it quite a bit, however the "how much would you pay" element could stand for some change/elimination, imho.

  • Leroux Megumi
    Leroux Megumi Year ago +2

    I understand and agree this price. Even Japan, average is 15 pounds. If your order other ingredient like Shrimps, other fish, it's might be 30 pounds. Concerning the Dashi also, Seaweeds, bonito flakes that Foods Busker used are costly. ( Dashi hold a week in freezing as ice cube!) May be, better idea as street foods, will serve with a bowl. Tempura topping on the rice and dashi soupe. ** also may be give the choice as seasening grated ginger. Anyway very authentic Tempura! So nice and Lovely!

  • Jeff Ward

    Do a video on pricing. In the States, certain beef & salmon are pricey where veggies are cheap. Seems your cows & fish come from the cheep side. I've been subbing for years & I always wondered why such the dycotomy between the UK & here. Great video however!!

    • Juan Quedo
      Juan Quedo Year ago +1

      Price must be because of the "exotic" veggies...plus kombu and katsuobushi. It costs almost the price of a seafood tempura.

  • Bcwolters
    Bcwolters Year ago +16

    Sorry John, without main proteins you can't go higher than a 6-7 quit. Love the idea though, but more as a side dish. 6 pounds / euros any given time. A few skewers of beef/chicken/pork on the side could easily up it to 15.You need to keep the combo's man! Boom!

    • Rob G
      Rob G Year ago +5

      I think if he made it into Veggie Tempura don(on the rice bowl) then it could get near that price. The way it’s done in the video made it feels like a plate of snacks. Still looks super good though.

    12? in japan tempura is ussually a street food, it should have been cheaper. you too optimistic for this mate..

    Should use vodka instead of water to make it lighter. Less gluten.

    Looks great, however, my local Japanese restaurant serves the exact same vegetable tempura with a selection of dipping sauces for under £5... Pricing was way off here John!

  • Lipcsai Szilveszter
    Lipcsai Szilveszter Year ago +19

    12 is a bit much...although I realize that there are some interesting and rare vegies here...but I would go around 7,50-8,50 max...

  • Krahn
    Krahn Year ago

    So much wasted flavor by not using the water the Konbu was hydrated in. :( There is no reason to transfer to new water, just bring the soaking konbu to a simmer after a long soak (overnight is great).
