November 7, 2019 100 By William Morgan


Oh boy, look at this guys. Oh it’s hot hot hot
Hey guys, what’s going on? I’m Ericsurf6 and welcome to another edition of Eric Meal Time.
Today I have found a place where there are tons of…
Food vending machines all together – We’re in sort of this…
Industrial area. A lot of factories around here. It’s kind of noisy it’s kind of loud
But we’re going to eat a bunch of different kinds of food from vending machines in Japan you ready?
Yeah, here we are, car repair shop. Huh, nice nice place
Got a lumber yard over here. Did I say car repair? It’s not car repair
It’s a wheel shop; wheels and tires. You guys hungry? Let’s go eat.
I don’t really want to start with popcorn, nah!
We can eat a jump rope. Where’s the food?This is all toys
Different kinds of canned drinks, let’s get to the food
Soba, Udon, here’s my buddy right here, Mr. Burger.
Hamburger
Definitely got to eat one of these. This says toast sando, toast sandwich those look interesting
Huh, maybe these for dessert and here we go wheels
Look at these nice wheels…
Just forget the food and get some new wheels from my car. This one’s interesting look at this down here
You can buy corn on the cob in a little package
Potatoes, baked potatoes look at that, looks good huh
Buttery Potatoes in a pack…mmm
Can you see that?
See if I can give you a clear shot. Squid on a
Stick right there
So I’m going to start with the ramen, this one Chashumen. It’s got the pork
It takes 24 seconds. Look at that, cool timer. 20 seconds. It changes down here
It’s hard to get this out
Got it. So cost for this is about three dollars fifty cents. Oh, it’s dripping
Oh boy, look at this guys. It’s hot hot hot
Add a little bit of pepper here
spice
There’s a little discussion
Pork! It’s a lot of pork. Look at this, you get one two three four five…
Five pieces of pork and you get a full egg, look at this, a whole egg
Not bad for a machine, but how does it taste how does it? How does it taste?
Hmm, Surprisingly good. Fresh!
Magic. This place is busy, there’s a lot of people. So I bet they stock these machines several times a day
Oh, wait a minute
The noodles.. noodles a bit bland I like the pork though
Try the soup, let’s get in for the soup
Shoyu, so a little bit salty
Go for the egg, Dark color
Oh look at that
It’s half-boiled
Soft-boiled
Inside is very sweet
almost sugar like
Tell you what though, it’s not bad for coming out of a machine. It’s got a nice sort of plastic bowl that you return
Boy… filled up already
Bamboo shoots, Go for another, another piece of this pork. The pork is surprisingly good
I mean honestly, it really tastes fresh.
And the volume is chewy, look at that
See the color on this
Here we go, eat another one
I’m getting full already, piece of seaweed
Good volume too – so for about three dollars you can’t beat the price
Waiting for your popcorn you get to listen to this delightful music
Gotta love that music
Always wanted a jump Rope. Hmm, a bit pricey though ten bucks
Here we go in Japan
Look at that. Did you guys know that cats have their own driver’s licenses – look at that. This is a cat
driver’s license
Seriously this cat has a driver’s license. Wow!
Only in Japan
It’s pretty rare to see Dr.Pepper in Japan but look they’ve also got diet Dr.Pepper Wow!
Amazing variety
Next up is the toast sandwich
It says “toasto sando” This is ham and cheese. They’ve also got corned beef. I guess I’ll go for the standard the Ham cheese
300 yen
one
two
three, about two dollars fifty cents
Here we go. Toasto chu, that means the toaster is toasting it
takes 40 seconds… Use these tongs to get it out with.
Did you hear it?
Like I’m reaching into a toaster.
It’s
It’s hard to get
There we go
Ho ho ho…Here we go
Look at that..It’s a ham and cheese sandwich. Got a lot of cheese on it and looks like…
Mustard, it smells like mustard Mm-Hmm
It’s toasted pretty well
Yeah
Good volume, it’s heavy, so yeah
a little less than three dollars
Could use a bit more mustard, but it’s good
Oh, it’s cheesy
really cheesy
And the temperature’s just right. Look at that cheese, just one piece of ham , Yup
Not bad for coming out of a machine. It’s a good press. Don’t know they do it.
You know, it’s good basic food
Yeah, not bad. All right next up is the yakitori
Which is you know, Yakitori is chicken on a stick
but this comes in a can
It is however served hot
okay, so I “atatakai”
So, let’s see
Like the cartoon on here. It’s pretty cool
Yeah, this one is a little more expensive 450 yen, about $4, but if it’s a can of meat
It might be worth it
let’s see
change
It’s pretty warm yeah, just eat it right here. It’s got a pop top on it.
Oh boy. It looks like dog food doesn’t it?
Smells like tomato soup, well I don’t know about this one guys
Yakatori I guess we’ll eat this with Chopsticks. It’s not on a stick
Okay, so it’s just pieces of Yakitori meat. Well, I don’t know it looks pretty good
Don’t knock it til you try it
smells a bit weird, a bit off
The taste is good …wow
Mmm. Nicely marinated meat. It’s different. It is more of a tomato sauce
Wow, the meat is fresh
Look at that big chunk
Definitely, it’s a teriyaki..
sauce, almost more of a stew
That’s a lot of meat
Yeah
There’s a softer piece
Good! Next up. We’re going to try Mr.. Burger. All right, and there are three types. There’s the basic hamburger,
There’s a cheeseburger, and there’s a teriyaki burger. I guess I’ll go for the cheeseburger
280 Yen
Ohh, this one doesn’t take the 500’s. It’s an machine, only hundreds
It’s about two dollars fifty cents
cheeseburger
(other people speaking)
takes a minute
It’s like the temperature inside the machine.
Here comes, ohhhh…
it’s in a box
Look at that
Nice presentation, OK here we go.. the hamburger
in a box
Love the box, in fact I’m going to keep the box. As a souvenir.
Oh it’s hot, hot hot hot really hot, too hot to eat – It’s in a bag
Smells like a Mos burger like a chili burger, I smell the ketchup
Let’s take a look
kind of a Soggy bun
whoa
It’s got mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup, cheese
Looks pretty good doesn’t it? The buns a bit soggy
So, a two dollar Hamburger
Mmm
Hmm. The meat is very plain
but hmm…
Acceptable for coming out of a machine..ha ha ha
lots of cheese, mustard, mayo though.
It’s flavorful
Hmm, not bad
Let’s try some noodles next. This is the Udon / Soba machine
300 yen, about two dollars fifty cents
Does it take ’em, yup. I’m going to go for the soba, it’s the thinner noodle
It takes 23 seconds
Get the Chopsticks out of here. Isn’t this cool?
Ten seconds. They come on right here.. Wait for it, there is it
Oh yeah
Look at that huh? Tempura Soba
So it looks like it left some noodles behind from the last time. That’s the Udon noodles right there. Ha Ha
Pepper, Spices. All right, Ready
Billy Joel playing in the background this might not be good. It’s not too loud though. I think it might be all right. Here we go, Soba
It’s nice and hot, look at that.. steam coming off it
Good
Let’s try the Tempura. I’m trying to find a place where it’s quiet, not so windy
I think I put too much spice on it… that’s quality Soba
I’ll tell you what, for a machine It’s pretty darn good.
And you can’t beat the price. $3…
less than three dollars
The tempura is kind of falling apart here
But tell you what though, this is quality
It’s definitely not bad
It’s got a pretty strong soup, definitely flavorful soup
Gotta hand it to the Japanese. Boy, they’ve got automation figured out
There’s no way that I could tell this came from a machine
That’s pretty darn good
All right here we go. This machine is exciting…
Yeah, save the best for last I think. Umm this one’s a popcorn and a pan can / A bread in a can
So I guess I’m just going to go for the popcorn and there’s three types
There’s, this says chocolate
Weird cause underneath it says butter
So that’s weird and then salt and then barbecue…Let’s try this, I don’t know if it’s going to be butter or chocolate
But it’s exciting isn’t it? It’s about $1…
$1.20 a $1.30
Got exact change? Yeah one of these 50 yen, put that guy in there
All Right, Rock-n-Roll here we go.
Takes forever
Finally
Machine says, your popcorn is really hot, be careful..Thank You!
It is chocolate… I was hoping for butter.
It’s chocolate
smells chocolatey?
whoo
Ohhh, it smells good
Chocolate popcorn huh… who would have thought?
Mmm-Mmm-Mmm…Oh, this is good, sweet, chocolatey!
It’s really fluffy, really fresh.
I think there’s a microwave oven inside that machine
Not bad
Not bad at all. I wish you guys could smell this…mmm
Filling up the hamburger machine. Oh yeah……… top secret
Hamburgers going in the oven. So I figured out how this place works. This is their delivery truck right here. It’s got a refrefrigeration unit
Engine’s on, it’s running and they just leave it here all day, and then they can stock all the machines which are over here
So there you go
that’s the whole operation right there… and
This is the stocking truck, yep
it’s a refrigerated unit just a small little truck, but it’s got all the supplies in it right everything is refrigerated inside and
That’s how it works. So there you go guys. The whole operation. Yeah give it a LIKE if you liked it
Got to try this machine out here. It’s got the metals.. the gold, the silver, and the bronze
Got to give these a try. Probably something sweet inside would be my guess
So what’s its going to be, gold, silver or bronze? I’m going to go for the silver. Yeah #14 (enters number on machine)
Okay, here we go
It’s pretty light
See what we got
Interesting package though, huh the silver metal
Look at how it opens. That’s pretty cool
Wonder if I did that right
Oh, it’s a box of candies
Yeah, I like the ribbon huh..That’s cute.
Oh, and then you wear it around your neck, ahhhh
I almost broke it
Just like this
Alright, just like this
The silver metal, yeah…What did you guys think of this video? Is it worth the silver metal?
Gold medal, that’s what I think I’m going to rate this meal. I’m going to give it a perfect 6 stars
Food from vending machines…
There’s
Nowhere that I’ve seen so much variety
Of the different types of food that you can get and the quality of the food that you can get in one place…
So definitely, six out of six stars
This place is in the middle of nowhere. There’s no way you guys would be able to find it
I couldn’t even find it, but I finally made it here, so six stars
That means I’m giving away three
