Binging with Babish: Brock's Onigiri from Pokémon

  • Published: 02 April 2019
  • Okay, it's April 2nd, fun's over. This week, for reals this time, we're making onigiri: the breakfasty-lunchy-snack, ubiquitous in Japan, and virtually unheard of here in the US. As such, some committee of suits saw fit to Americanize their portrayal on Pokémon, and a generation of these United States grew up thinking they were donuts...and the bastards made ten hundred billion dollars. Was it worth it, 4Kids Entertainment? Oh, it was? No yeah you're right.

        i really think it should be appreciated that he made five attempts, and didn't just pick out the best and last one to film, but put in all of them, and acknowledged his mistakes and improvement along the way

            .... that is not an Onigiri. Don’t add rice vinegar!!! It’s just rice, salt and water.

                                      I have watched only two videos of yours, however the calm no nonsense tone of voice mixed with the spontaneous nonsensical situations, like the sticky kelp and the size changing kitchen tools, not to mention the fact you make cartoon and anime dream food a reality, proved so entertaining I just subscribed without having to watch anymore.

Sushi has the vinegar and sugar in it; onigiri is just rice. It's a name distinction more than anything though. It's like putting cheese on a hamburger and continuing to call it a hamburger even though it is now a cheeseburger. Super common mistake though. The onigiri/sushi thing not the burger thing.
