Well, it felt like we had to do it. After feeding Martina last week, we saw people wanted us to try it the other way around, so Martina was able to get her sweet revenge on me this week. Sweet isn’t the right word for it, though. It didn’t taste sweet. The bean mochi were a bit sweet, but that’s about it. That mayo was so TANGY. I don’t remember Canadian mayo tasting so flavorful. That noodle bun, though, is actually not half bad. I had it back when we were in Osaka last year. The concept of noodles within a bun seemed ridiculous, but it’s quite delicious. I was pleasantly surprised. I’d recommend eating it without a bottle of mayonnaise dumped on it. The mayo kinda dampens the deliciousness of the bun.
Also, like we mentioned in the video, this is the last Eat Your Sushi episode for a couple of weeks or so. Martina’s flying out this Wednesday and will come back at the end of May. I’ll still be here in Tokyo watching over Spudgy and Meemers. I would have gone with her, but we don’t have anyone to take care of our animals. So, this will be the longest we’ve ever been apart. A few years ago she had to go back to Canada on family matters, and Martina was just gone for a week. It was a rough week, for those of you who remember the Ice Cream video. This is gonna be two weeks, the longest we’ve ever been apart. In other words, it was nice knowing you. Remember me as I once was: happy and playful, crass and gross, and with celery dangling from my mouth. I’ll be an empty shell of my former self by the time Martina comes back. Remember me.
Ok I don’t want to end this blog post off all sad and shit. Congratulations to this week’s winners! Please send us an email if you’ve won. And we’ve got a fun video coming out this week as well. Yesterday, we also had a fun day filming a couple of videos with Strawburry17, and those should be coming up soon as well. Woot!
