  • best-kept secrets.

  • Sharla: He saved it. He saved it right for the end.

  • Norm: I, I did. We were actually supposed to be doing totally different today,

  • we had a helicopter tour.

  • Sharla: Yeah, we were trying to fly in a helicopter to get a tour around Tokyo,

  • but they ended up not wanting us to film it

  • and that doesn't really work for vlogs so

  • Norm: They're like oh, you can film out the window, but nothing else and I was like no. No, thank you.

  • Sharla: That's no fun

  • Norm: No thank you

  • so

  • Sharla: That's okay I'm sure you have something very cool.

  • Norm: What we're doing today is something

  • the place that I'm going to be taking Sharla to today

  • Is a place that I have been going to for 10 years.

  • Sharla: And he hasn't told me about it til now!

  • Norm: I haven't told anyone about it, this is my secret.

  • Sharla: I'm excited!

  • Norm: You know, I might not even take you.

  • Sharla: No!

  • Sharla: Come back!

  • Sharla: Welcome to the 39th floor of Ebisu Garden place tower it's so high up,

  • I feel like I, this must be higher than Tokyo Tower or like the same?

  • Norm: I don't know, I, I feel like we're higher up.

  • You know what the real heartbreak of the view is though?

  • This whole white view that we have here

  • there should be

  • Mount Fuji right there.

  • Clear as day.

  • Sharla: Still kinda ruined that but,

  • Norm: Don't worry, I'll tell you what, I'll send you some clips that you can place them here.

  • ~Imagine~

  • Sharla: Haha, look like we were there!

  • Sharla: So we're just walking around trying to choose where to go for lunch

  • everywhere looks really fancy,

  • but the prices are actually quite low just over 10 or 15 dollars for lunch

  • which is pretty normal in Japan.

  • Sharla: We just checked one of the like,

  • probably the fanciest places

  • and they have a

  • Veggie Soymilk Sautee as one of the options.

  • So that's choice number one

  • that's one option on our list.

  • There's also a salad bar

  • which Norm said was good.

  • So that's another choice.

  • Norm: Really, it's really your choice when it comes down to it,

  • like, it's one of your last meals in Tokyo.

  • I can eat here anytime I want. Sharla: Don't say that!

  • Sharla: This is the view from our seat;

  • how epic is that? What park is that?

  • It's at Yoyogi Park?

  • possibly Yoyogi Park don't quote me on that.

  • Okay, so this is what I was so excited about guys, Sautee of varied vegetables and soybean milk.

  • Sharla: Lunch is finished!

  • How was your lunch?

  • Norm: Lunch was delicious!

  • Sharla: It was really really good.

  • Norm: Very good choice.

  • I wouldn't have chosen this place, but you did

  • Sharla: yayy

  • Norm: and I'm glad you did.

  • Sharla: I liked it, it was so good!

  • It tasted really expensive,

  • but it's only like 15 dollars so

  • We're gonna go chill and do some editing for a bit before we head off to our next location.

  • Norm: Because I'm making some cheesy Instagram stories for Sharla.

  • Sharla: He is, go check out Norm's Instagram.

  • He's really great with the story.

  • If you go over to my Instagram,

  • I'll have the one pin that he made for me.

  • Sharla: So I don't know where we're going. Is this the right way?

  • Norm: Okay, you see this temple over here?

  • You wanna go torwards this temple.

  • Norm: I'm so excited about this one!

  • Sharla: I'm excited because you're so excited.

  • Norm: Ah! So I was just telling, I was just telling the people on my video

  • like the backstory to this

  • Sharla: Yeah

  • Norm: and like how I found it

  • and it was just a slightly inebriated night, where I'm stumbling through these back streets

  • and I found this rustic old building

  • that you would never consider going into

  • then I peeked through the window and saw something,

  • something that caught my interest

  • and it's this way.

  • Sharla: This way? This way?

  • Norm: Imagine right here

  • Sharla: I was gonna say this one.

  • Sharla: Wow

  • This is it

  • This looks pretty epic

  • So dagashi (did I spell that right?) are a Japanese traditional snacks and candies

  • and I love them so - I'm very intrigued now.

  • This looks really cool.

  • Alright guys Kanji practice time.

  • Can you read this?

  • (Sorry I don't know how to spell these)

  • All you can eat!

  • dagashi

  • Sharla: I love how they have like all the old Showa era.

  • Posters

  • Beer advertisments

  • So, they way this bar works is you pay a 5 dollar cover charge

  • and you can eat all the snacks you want

  • and they have an amazing selection.

  • You pick up a basket

  • and you can choose whatever you'd like

  • and bring it back to your table.

  • This is so fun

  • How have I never been here before?

  • They have my favorite

  • Yeah, they do they have my favorite!

  • I love these!

  • I showed these in a video before.

  • They're amazing

  • Norm: And I will say Sharla, we got really lucky today.

  • Sharla: Why?

  • Norm: Because it's so quiet in here.

  • Sharla: It's usually busier?

  • And it's a Friday night isn't it?

  • Norm: Yeah, this place is usually pretty packed.

  • Sharla: Super lucky.

  • Sharla: I got a Soju base with ramune

  • oh god dammit

  • So that it blocks it

  • Life hacks with norm

  • Norm: Alright, so you'll notice, there's this little pinch in here, that is meant to hold the ball providing you're not drinking it too quick

  • I was at a festival once and watched a mother tell her little daughter

  • That if you drink it so fast that the ball falls past that you're drinking it too quickly

  • So parents use this to teach their kids to enjoy their drinks a little more slowly

  • Sharla: What did you get? Is that one of those Vitamin C drinks?

  • like an energy drink with whiskey

  • Sharla and Norm: Cheers!

  • Time for the haul.

  • Let me show you guys what I got I actually got some things that I've never tried before which is

  • surprising because I love (sorry don't know how to spell it) and I buy them all the time.

  • Number one we have don don yaki

  • I love the originals, but this is kimchi flavor so that's fun. These are another one of my favorite. I usually get the cherry version.

  • Hey

  • Get out of the. I usually eat the cherry version of these, but they had a soda flavor, which looks really good.

  • These are hard Mochi candies

  • it's kind of hard to explain. I've always thought of them as mochi.

  • This is Mochi Taro

  • I've showed you guys this in a video before it's really similar to don don yaki.

  • Some orange cigarettes like the ones you can find in canada actually, but I've never had orange flavored ones. This is (spelling idk)

  • (can't spell) stick soybean powder stick it looks like mochi so that one should be good

  • These are mini yogurts. They're called yogurts, but they're not yogurt. There's nothing dairy in these

  • So I'm very interested

  • to see how they taste; like what are they? I probably shouldn't ask.

  • And they come with a little wooden spoon to eat it with it's super cute .

  • And last but not least I got some strawberry flavored ramune candies.

  • Alright starting off with the don don yaki ~kimchi flavor~

  • Here's what they look like they're made from rice, they're like a deep-fried mochi

  • Norm: While she was telling you about that

  • I ate 10.

  • Sharla: They're so good.

  • They're kinda

  • There kind of sour they've got like a vinegary taste of them like salt and vinegar chips

  • I could easily just down the entire pack right now.

  • Norm: My bags almost empty.

  • Sharla: So here's the

  • original of those.

  • It's sauce flavored.

  • Sauce in Japanese is like an okonomiyaki sauce.

  • Kind of like barbecue?

  • It's really all I can explain it as for those of you that haven't had it before

  • Also really good, but I actually think I prefer the kimchi one.

  • How about the (can't spell)

  • The ingredients are kinako, sugar

  • and sugar.

  • Wait what

  • Norm: Nice.

  • Best ingredients ever.

  • It's only made out of Kinako, I figured it would be mochi, but it's literally

  • just a stick of Kinako.

  • Interesting, all right

  • Norm: These are really good, but they're very chewy

  • Sharla: Interesting okay, you have to like mochi, but with no rice involved and just soy bean powder

  • It's got a very Japanese taste to it. I feel like this would be really good with like some green tea or something

  • I'm gonna try this creepy yogurt thing that contains no yogurt whatsoever. It's made from

  • plant oils, sugar

  • cornstarch and

  • stevia

  • Basically just sugar and oil

  • It smells like that really

  • Cheap icing that you get on cakes at Walmart

  • Kind of looks like it too. Not expecting too much flavor-wise out of this

  • We will see

  • It really tastes like icing, the icing on a cheap cake.

  • This is like one of my least favorite things

  • It's got a slight lemon flavor to it which is nice

  • that's the best part about it, but

  • I hate that kind of icing, so this one gets a no for me if I go out and then come back and pay another $5

  • Norm: I wonder

  • Sharla: Probably right.

  • Their not gonna complain.

  • Norm: I don't think like (?)

  • Sharla: Alright, our night is planned.

  • Gonna be here til midnight.

  • Norm: This is so much better than the helicopter.

  • Sharla: So cool

  • This is definitely a must of you're in Tokyo on vacation

  • it's like an opportunity for you to try all the traditional Japanese snacks for five bucks.

  • Norm: Yeah

  • Sharla: How cool is that?

  • Norm: So especially if you're traveling in a group and you come to a place like this,

  • you find something, try it if you like it. great if you don't like it, you've got other people to pawn it off on

  • Sharla: I've got a present for you, Norm.

  • Norm: Oh was it bad?

  • What?

  • It's confusing

  • Sharla: What is it remind you of?

  • Norm: Okay, you know like lemon meringue pie?

  • Sharla: Okay

  • Norm: It's like the meringue from lemon meringue pie has been left out too long

  • and it's like gotten this like thickness

  • or, or

  • The best I can think is like, a melted marshmallow

  • Sharla: No, your giving it too much credit.

  • That sounds kind of good

  • I said that it tasted exactly like the cheap icing on a Walmart birthday cake.

  • Norm: Oh my god, that's it!

  • Sharla: Yeah, that's exactly what I said.

  • Norm: What kind of cakes did you have as a kid that that's what came from your mind?

  • Sharla: No, those are the ones when you go to someone elses birthday party and they always have that cake, and you just scrape off all the icing.

  • Norm: Oh my god.

  • Sharla: Holy crap.

  • Norm: This cookie is so chocolaty inside.

  • Sharla: That's a bit much.

  • Okay I'm trying the fruit soda mochi

  • Norm: I am loving this cookie

  • Sharla: I love this bar!

  • Why am I just finding this now? Damn you norm!

  • Norm: Sorry, I'm a huge believer and saved the best for last.

  • Sharla: It did make for an epic last vlog

  • They're squishier than I remember

  • They're really soft

  • They're Ramune flavor so, Ramune flavor

  • Norm: This is sour spray
