  1. I’m not sure “perfection” and “magestic” are the right words to describe a 1500yen bowl of sumo soup…

  2. Hello Mark. Thanks for share your experience. Chankinabe looks amazing. The next june I going to travel to Tokyo, Japan. Would you help me with the name of the Chankonabe's restaurant? Sure, I must try to taste this! Keep going with your journeys. Cheers!

  3. Hey man! I didn't know you had a YouTube channel… Very ignorant of me… We exchanged some mails when I was in Thailand. Good to see you again!☺️

  4. I love your videos, I have been binge watching them for a couple of days now. Your expressions, your descriptions, everything is just awesome and so informative.

  5. The face he makes after eating just adds to the experience. To all of those who are complaining about it: Suck it up!

  6. That portion is big enough for two IMO. You could share it with the wife, just ask for another bowl of rice and you're good to go.
