    I dont understand the reason behind the dislikes. Ive never seen westerners so passionate about sushi. im like the asian equivalent of the guy - when i eat good sushi i clench my fist, do a little jig and shed a tear of joy.

    Love sushi, honestly, it's great. I just never understood where the "cooking" aspect comes in. It's basically raw ingredients, and boiled rice. Seasoning might be added. I just don't think the chef has a lot of control over how a california roll taste, just how fresh the ingredients are. Maybe thats the challenge in it, picking the right things, not making the sushi itself.

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  День назад

      Getting the right ingredients is a huge part of it. Like for his fish, for example: he has access to fish that we can't even look at. The fish merchants reserve the best for him and for a few other sushi chefs. Us plebs get the leftovers. And that's just the fish. The quality of rice he gets (not all rice is the same, like how not all grapes are the same), the balance of how to season the rice (you need to do more than just cook it) is all part of the taste.

      An extreme example: Saito said that his fridge doesn't use any coolant. He gets fresh blocks of ice instead, because fridges use freon, and that can leave a faint aftertaste on the fish. So he'll only use ice blocks.

    I think the most depressing part about all the hate comments on this is that Simon & Martina are true diamonds in the rough type of people amongst a sea of horrifying idiots, and the lack of an ability to see & appreciate how smart, unique, talented, and truly positive and wonderful people they are makes me unbelievably sad for our world. I would kill to know these 2 personally because I feel like I don't know enough people like this that have a mind and interests of their own, a fucking amazing sense of humor, are successful, honest, and hard working, yet have not a shred of pretentious arrogance about them, just gratitude and positivity. I hope they know how pure gold they are, and that there are those of us who see it and are brought an enormous amount of happiness, hope, and laughter watching their videos. <3

    why in christ's name are there so many thumbs downs?! Jake Paul fans running rampant where they don't belong. this video is fucking fantastic, and it was really neat seeing a more serious videos from you guys because while it was more serious, it was not at all pretentious. love you guys so much, love how this was filmed, love the music choices, love the macro shots, love how it was edited. it was awesome to see your same talent applied to something more serious, because it still felt very you guys, but just more subdued. EXCELLENT as always <3 <3

    Simon and Martina don't pay attention to those who comment rude things. Those who have followed you for year s understand your love for food. I've made a couple weird faces myself when I eat. Sometimes words don't express how good something is, so you have to show lol

      +John Zimmerman you're wrong about what you think is the proper way to eat sushi. We spoke with this chef, and other sushi chefs. It doesn't matter if you use chopsticks or hands, or if the rice touches your tongue first or the fish. All that matters is you don't let it sit for too long when the chef gives it to you. That's all.

    As i've been a Nastie for the last few years, I watched this video when it was uploaded, loved the quality content, smooth editing and truthfull opinions that Simon and Martina always give us. Came back to rewatch it today and oh all the hate! How did it even get 6K dislikes!? I think it's quite obvious that the people spreading hate are newbies who have no idea who Simon and Martina are and how genuine every video of theirs is. PLEASE PEOPLE! Spread hummus, not hate

      +tan da sure. And football is just throwing a ball. Nothing special. Music is just banging on drums. Nothing special. Everything in the world is nothing special if you want it to be. But if you're looking for more, there are many things that can offer you joy. Be it music, sports, or good food.

    OMG!! Dip my nuts in soy sauce...
    This video was so magical and emotional
    it brought me in touch with feelings I didn't even know existed!
    First off, let me just get this out of the way...
    Simon looked so cute in his Pebbles inspired pony tail..
    He's kinda like the fury faced Gerber Baby
    (I just wished he had a pink bow in it)..
    Anyways the way he spoke of every succulent bite put goose bumples on my puss pimples
    I can't lie, It was so erotic I started masturbating...
    And then he said something that triggered me into overwhelming tears!
    I cried so hard I had to finger my own butt hole just to hold back some of the emotions..

    And then I slept like a baby and lived happily ever after in whimsical world of Sushi
    where I am the King of all the Man/Childs!

    Great video and story. It isn't just a story about one of the world's greatest chefs, it is also a story about how to have a truly fulfilling life. So many people are afraid to choose a career, to truly dedicate themselves to one thing, because they're afraid of losing the freedom of having many options at all times. But this is the path to a fulfilling, flourishing life - to choose a trade, an art, a skill, and to dedicate oneself to the pursuit of perfection. It can be anything - cooking, medicine, welding, law, engineering, really anything. The point is to fulfill your purpose in life by choosing a path with all your work ethic, heart, and soul. Saito is an example of this way of life.
