Mike Chen and Claire Saffitz Explore Japanese Street Food and Candy | Gochi Gang

  • Published: 12 November 2019
  • Japan Village is a 20,000-square-foot food hall in Brooklyn’s Industry City, and Reina Scully is ready to explore every corner. But no food tour is complete without a few friends. Joining Reina on her adventure is Strictly Dumpling’s Mike Chen, Bon Appétit’s Claire Saffitz, and NYC restaurateur Sakura Yagi. First, Reina, Mike, and Sakura tour Japan Village’s dizzying array of Japanese food stalls, sampling everything from street-food staples like okonomiyaki and yakisoba, to comfort-cooking classics like onigiri. Then, for dessert, Reina meets Claire for a Japanese candy shopping spree at Sunrise Mart. Together, Reina and Claire explore Japan’s love affair with Kit-Kats, sample a giant Pocky stick, and search for inspiration for Claire’s next big project.

      I have a big crush on her - me, a very straight girl. I wonder if Claire knows how many people would die for her and, if so, how she feels about it.

      I think that meme originates with Mike's Mic. Am I right?

                  I fast forwarded to the last third of the video until I saw Claire. I’m just here for Claire.

                      The BA videos don’t light Claire very well. She’s so much more beautiful in these videos.

                                                        The title is misleading. I expected Claire to be the host.

The host is really nice but I feel like she's in 'kawaii-energy-overdrive'. As a dutch person I don't trust people with an energy level like that cause it's not natural :P.
