  1. I have to say that Rie is one of my favorite chefs! I love learning how other countries do a simple sandwich like egg salad! Decades ago, I learned how to make a perfect American egg salad. Over the years my sons and their friends swore that my egg salad was the best! I swore them all to secrecy, but my sons carried extra egg salad and crackers to share with friends for all their years in school.

  2. Rie: so I’m going to make an egg salad sandwich
    Me: ok Rie, let me follow along
    Rie: lets start with the bread because it take the longest
    Me: OH GIRL!!!!! 🤯

  3. I love Tasty

    I love Rie Personality
    I love Everything abour Rie 😀

  4. i've always liked a really vinegar-y egg salad, with red onion for a crunchy texture. but i do really like the idea of using more yolk than white, i always just shred my eggs through a cooling rack and use the whole thing.

  5. Difference is Western people really like the sweetness in their food as per Asian people who looks for that umami flavor in their food. No wonder the western judge liked the 7/11 one because they pattern their flavors to what the mass people preferred.

  6. I miss the egg salad sandwhiches from family mart conbini when I lived in Aomori. I had food from there so often they learned my name since I lived just a little down the street.

  7. I would like to call HELLA BULL that 7 Eleven an American company serves good food outside the states. Why can't we get that here in the USA? Why do companies do that?

  8. The non-asian didn't like it because she wouldn't understand what a sandwich made out of love in lunchbox means. Hahaha.

  9. For real tho, the 7/11 stores in Asia are way better than American ones. I'm in Korea, and the 7/11's have different sandwiches, bento boxes with katsu or noodles, bibimbap, salads, noodles, kimbaps, and so much more all for around 4 or 5 USD

  10. As an American, I'll go for the homemade egg salad sandwich over 7-11's because one, mass produced and cold packaged sandwiches are DISGUSTING, and two, homemade is always better because the ingredients are controlled for small batches. The only commercially produced product I like is Keogh's crisps from Ireland. Every single bag says what field the potatoes were grown in, the variety of potato it is, and who cooked that specific small batch.

  11. I would love to make this. This is going on my todo list. My mother taught me her way of making egg salad sandwiches (eggs, mayo, salt / pepper, and a little pinch of season-all) when I was younger. My mom always said as long as you have eggs you'll always have a meal.

  12. Rie!!!!! Don't worry about boiling water and dropping eggs!!! You need to try to steam your eggs instead!!!!! They peel perfectly everytime!!!!!! You're welcome!!!!! 💗💗💗

  13. My way: I buy eggs and then let them sit in the fridge for up to two weeks. This makes them easier to peel. Another way: Use salt or vegetable oil in the water, this causes the egg shell to peel easily too when using fresh eggs. The salt or oil also causes any egg white that escapes if an egg cracks to congeal. Which is better than have it go all over your pot of boiling water – a horrible mess.

  14. I actually made this a lot! I don't have the mold and time to make my own bread so I use stor bought bread but I eat this sandwich a lot I don't even live in Japan

  15. always choose the homemade option! has anyone seen the nutrition label on the 7-11 sandwich? your eyes will roll into the back of your head!

  16. Thanks so much for this recipe. 

    I would really, really like get the 7-eleven recipe for the chili they put in their chili buns. Best ever!

  17. Hi guys I’m rie and I’m a tasty producer

    Good to know u r a tasty producer though u broke in and took their camera

  18. I haven't had Japanese egg salad, but I put sweet relish, smoked paprika, dill, sour cream, cream cheese and s/p in mine. It would make it sweeter without directly adding sugar. I'm American, but I'm southernish so I like salty and sweet additives I guess.

  19. Everyone says the "AmericanS" prefer the 7-11 taste but there was only 1 westerner. And that could just be her personal preference. We dont know her cultural (not nationality) background… maybe in her culture flavors are stronger.

  20. I don't know how good 7-Eleven Japan's products are, but I would expect someone of Rie's caliber to win a challenge like this in a walkover.

  21. Making tamago sando by yourself from scratch: 3 hours. Going to a japanese 7Eleven, 5 minutes.

    Greetings from the Gunma prefecture lol.

  22. Jalanese are so polite that they would definitely compliment on the sandwich ☺️
    I will definitely make it. Looks fantastic

  23. I have so much respect for her. She knows her vocabulary really well and pronounces it great too! I know that Japanese people have a really hard time learning english with all the extra words and with the pronounciations of the words being very different.

  24. Can Rie do this for conbini fried chicken like nanachiki, famichiki etc? I so desperately long to recreate japanese convenience hot foods. Nothing in the west compares.
