Be honest here: did you know how to eat chicken wings like this? Is this common knowledge? I literally just discovered how to do this at the end of last year, and now that we’re back in Nagoya in the same Yamachan and shooting a video, I thought we’d share how it’s done. It’s not common knowledge, is it? I’m in my 30s and I just found out. I’m sure some of you don’t know how to do this. And I’ve eaten chicken wings with lots of people before and I never saw anyone eat them like this, either. Why would they hide it from me, if it’s clearly the superior way to eat chicken wings? You can have much more in your mouth at once, and you can power through more wings at a faster rate, because with chicken wings it’s not a matter of eating till your satisfied, but eating till you’re ill.
Martina didn’t learn the last time. We were with Rachel and Jun. They introduced us to this place. We were all busy talking and whatnot. Jun was eating chicken wings this way. I found the instructions in the book and gave it a shot and I was amazed. Martina didn’t pick up on it back then. I’m not sure why she didn’t. But now she knows as well, and knowledge is power.
Yamachan isn’t only in Nagoya, though. I wouldn’t come to Nagoya just for chicken wings. We went to Nagoya for another restaurant that’s definitely worth the journey, but you’ll see that video another day! Yamachan is in Tokyo now as well, and I’m pretty sure it’s in other parts of Asia, too. It’s in Hong Kong and Thailand as well, but I’m not sure where else. No matter what, check it out when you get the chance and eat until you burst. You can check out their website or check out this Google Map with many of the locations listed (zoom out of the map and you’ll see more).
Otherwise, apologies for the lack of videos last week. We were in Kyoto shooting two fancy food videos with master chefs, and then we went to Kobe to visit the friends that really solidified our plans to move to Japan. And now we’re both sick with bad colds. I think we might be better a bit for tomorrow for a LiveStream, though! We’ll see in the morning. Till then, here are some extra scenes, along with some more of Dan messing up David Attenborough:
