Saitamaya: The Master of Grilled Meat

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.

This is special. The way to honor food is to eat it with respect, gusto and with your precious attention. I felt it here. <3

man I feel bad. I was out of the loop for a while now mainly because this is my junior year in high school and things are starting to pick up.
Binge watching all these videos makes me feel great but at the same time I feel bad that I wasn't on the same time frame on your journey kind of thing does that even make sense?
I almost forgot how therapeutic it is to watch y'all's videos for me lol I'm actually doing my math homework while watching this.
Keep up the good work!! Oh god I hope you don't see this I haven't changed my username or photo since 2008 or something

The subtitles are so obnoxious haha. "Martina lets out another soft moan while looking deeply at her pork intestine." Enjoyable video though.

I've watched this video over ten times and each time I grow to love the Chef's personality even more. It's like I don't even want to try his food as much as I just want to meet him haha. But jk the food looks amazing and this is definitely on my list to try when I go to Japan.

OKay so yo. I was just back and visiting in Japan for a week. And boy howdy did I go to this place. None of my friends were free to go with me so I hauled my ass out to Jujo and waited for an hour and a half. The meal I had was one of the best I've ever had because beyond the tasty tasty meat, I got to meet a lovely little family for two hours. Now I'm not just talking about the Ogumas, though Hideo was awesome and made sure I was comfortable as a single, lonely foreigner. I mean the people sitting around me. By the end of the meal I really felt like the whole restaurant had gelled into some unified collective of "people who ate at Saitamaya at 16:00 on Saturday March 18, 2017."

I can't wait to return. I feel the need to bring everyone I know to Japan, and then to this place.

Shut the fuck up, you pretentious, cambucha juice, drinking, hippies. They're selling you the hype more than anything. I can grill meat just as good over a camp fire.

Cow's balls is good too. MMmmmm... the nice, warm, juicy balls melts in your mouth with every bite...

So after killing all of the monsters, this is what Saitama retired to. And his hair came back.

Have you guys checked out Midnight Diner on Netflix? if so you should, I think it might inspire you guys even furthermore beyond with how you go about your future videos, with things such as visuals, storytelling ect. Its pretty much about a Midnight Diner.

A food locale does not have to cost a fortune/meal in order for one to have a great experience and a delicious meal at the same time. Interesting video 👍

Is it non-jap friendly communication wise?

Author Michael Sierra ( ago)
you guys are too extra

Author Nelson Lee ( ago)
I really dislike how before you even bite into the meat, you already make a face like you're about to orgasm. It's kinda fake. Just explain the food, stop overdoing it with the Hollywood acting.

Saitama, mastering punches and grilling meat.

Author Brandon Lambert ( ago)
I liked everything about this video, outside of when you actually ate the food. Scrunching your face up and saying "mhmm so good" after every bite of everything is definitely not a genuine reaction to eating foods. More of his honest description of the liver and less of "omg my mouth is in heaven" looks.

Author Yi Wang ( ago)
I just want to say their way of "being surprised and satisfied of how delicious the food is" is so predictable so exaggerated so sick. Read more book and use more vocabulary, watch more movies and learn more facial expressions.

Author Deathbrewer ( ago)
Actually I think asking to drive the NASA shuttle would be a *little* bit harder, lol... It's not like NASA is saying "yes" to CNN coming over and driving it either :D

This just required very specific networking (friend who asked him and you got lucky since he probably trusts said friend) but no amount of networking, knowing the right person, or "getting lucky" would EVER result in you getting to randomly drive the NASA shuttle, because NO ONE randomly drives that thing, it's a huge process and a huge deal every single time with nothing left to chance beyond what is literally impossible to control, lol.

"It may not be the most expensive place but the food is absolutely top notch" 7:52 When does anything being expensive add to the enjoyment of something? If it's inexpensive (cheap would be the wrong word to use here) and the food is amazing, then I'm all in.
