Saitamaya: The Master of Grilled Meat

  • Published on Nov 6, 2016
  • If you have a great meal, but you're not allowed to take a picture of it, is it still delicious? At Saitamaya, the answer is yes.
    We're thrilled to share our experience at Saitamaya, where the master has perfected the art of Yakiton, but he won't let you take any pictures or video of the food. Yet, he allowed us to shoot here this day. The food here is unbelievable. People travel from all over the country to eat here, and - if you're coming to Japan - you definitely need to stop by here.
    Come, let us introduce you to the master of grilled meat.

      Because the chef invited us to shoot the video. How do you think we interviewed him? Just kicked in the door and demanded he answer our questions?!

  • João Victor Cunha da Paixão

    What a stupid channel ... they post videos eating top food and viewers watch it as they have noodles...
    What`s the point !?

      As someone who will likely never get the chance to visit Japan and try authentic Japanese food, Simon and Martina's channel is one of my favourites. They help me to see all kinds of foods, locations, and experiences that I would never get the chance to see in my country (New Zealand).

    I just started following your channel (saw The most Beautiful restaurant in Japan on the trending page), and so far I've been really impressed with your candor, and your respect for food art (and the artists themselves) - I hope to visit Japan with my husband, someday, and go to these places you have highlighted. Hope to see more of your work!

    I know why he said yes, its because your true love of food. CNN and all those other organisations come there for some content they really don't care about and will never make the place justice. You go there because your love of the food and that love shows.

    Dont see here any magic food, just a good cook, fresh products and some spices. My father can cook the best food in comparison to food which i tasted somewhere else and he is a surgeon. So in my opinion there is like a final destination of food preparation and it cant be better than fantastically delicious, in places like this you pay more for the popularity and demand. It is like to buy an iphone but you know you can get an equal product or even better for less money.

    May GOD give you long life
    My suggestion to you guys is to try someday meat dishes made of eid slaughtered animals
    I mean those animals slaughterd on the eid day have a different taste can try yourself too just bring some meat from market and also bring some meat from any of your muslim friend on eid days we call it "qurbani meat"
    Cook both meat same way you would feel the difference of taste
    Thats my suggestion as i have felt this difference everytime.
    Thankyou guys
    Wish you all the best

    Hey simon and Martina! Just went to Tokyo and went to visit saitayama’s restaurant and it has got to be one of the top food experiences I had in Tokyo. All the locals were ultra friendly and saitayama was extremely accommodating (possibly bc we got there at 3 pm and were the first people on line to get in at 4). Those lemon drinks really sneak up on you! Thank you so much for making this video and many others. I went to visit so many of the recommended places during my trip including the satou meatball shops in kichijoji! So DELICIOUS and extremely juicy!!
    But I actually sat where you sat in this video ahah bc it had the best view of the food’ amazing!!

    I know their reactions are exaggerated, but triggered people need to look at it with an open-minded perspective. If an actor doesn't show some sad expressions how else would viewers know that actor is feeling sad? Not everyone has high emotional intelligence. These exaggerated expressions are needed to delivered the feelings and emotions that are lost during translation. Different people perceive emotions differently.
    People like to look at exaggerated expressions becuase we don't get to see much of it in our daily life. Why do you think there are "reactions videos" everywhere on youtube? Why do you think pewdiepie has 50mil subscribers? We just love to look at other people acting stupid because we would never act like that ourselves. It is that simple.
