100 thoughts on “Asian People Taste Test Trader Joe’s Asian Food

  1. Tbh I enjoyed that they all weren’t hating on the food, no matter your race different people have different standards

  2. As a Chinese-American I don't like the orange chicken but my mom does. People shouldn't expect authentic with the Trader Joe's food.. If it's convenient and it taste good then it gets to the point.

  3. The girl girl duo is a more realistic representation of how asians feel about trader Ming's food. Like it's good college Asian food. The Michelle girl seemed like she was trying hard. She didn't even know what nori is in the Japanese fried rice

  4. That guys is from “The Big Short” movie that play the chinese mathematician for “Jared Benette” that is played by Ryan Gosling.

  5. If Michelle and Stanley is couple I'll love to hear them talk about others behind peoples back, they make a perfect Disney stepmother and stepdad

  6. When I was pregnant my husband made that Trader Joe's fried rice. The smell made me sick, it smelled like boxed Latkes a little bit. I'm sure it tastes good but the smell was so potent I was airing the apt out all day.

  7. All this stuff looks more like Panda Express than real Asian food. I'm surprised they didn't review the Trader Joes Asian dumplings, which at least are tolerable.

  8. There should be a mandatory requirement for People that say "I cant even eat this" or "I wanna spit it out"…
    To submit video documentary of what they ACTUALLY EAT on daily basis.

    So we can decide if we can throw raw eggs on their spiteful ass together in unison

  9. If we are comparing horrible corporatized representations of Asian Cuisine why are we not giving happy wok credit where credit is do? Like Panda doesn’t even compare.

  10. 'That's not a thing you put in fried rice'
    Yes, because there is only one type of fried rice in the whole of asia.

    These people are Americans, not Asians.

  11. there is bunch of ways to make the food and people of different regions have specific methods by adding and eliminating ingredients to match with local people. Japanese fried rice is different from chinese version and there are people who dont drink tea meanswhile others drink everyday. Stop making yourself be so thoughtful even though you know nothing

  12. Bruh the 2 Asian Americans are trying extra hard to to show their Asianess. Food doesn't have to be completely authentic to be good. There are fusion restaurants that do great because of the care and attention the chefs put into the food. Creativity and experimentation is part of cooking and is what drives the culinary world. That being said there are also bad authentic food solely because the chef wasn't good.

  13. I really feel like the girl in the girl guy combo thinks all fried rice is the same. There’s other versions of a pretty basic meal?

  14. I'm from louisiana too! I wonder if he's from an area of louisiana near me so i can try his fam's restaurant??

  15. i’m kind of disappointed they left out the trader joe’s soup dumplings. they’re one of my favorite things to get at tj’s and my mom even likes them better than some dim sum places ?

  16. If I was craving Asian food that badly, I'd would just make it from scratch. Most of these Asian dishes are quick and easy to make. Aside from the Bao since you have to make the dough and filling and those take at least an hour or more to make.

  17. Listen, quit being boujee y'all. I'm Mexican and my favorite memories growing up were from my Summer and Winter vacations when I would spend it in Mexico following my grandmother around as she made the most delicious, mouth-watering, authentic, savory food. However, I'm not about to turn my nose up in the air on the burritos and tacos and chillaquilles and guacamole Trader Joe's makes. Are they authentic? Hell no. But it's still good food. And decent quality. You all should be more like the girl Asian who enjoys Trader Joe's for what it is: loving life.

  18. Chinese-American duo feels too pretentious. Love the girls, chill! Authentic Asian food is prepared at home or good restaurants duh. What you expect from Asian-American food, Asian-American duh.

  19. Microwaved bread is microwaved bread. Bao tastes fine but yeah it's going to be tough and chewy. You could steam them if you don't mind taking a lot more time but………

  20. So. I'm Asian. Vietnamese American. Personally, I actually really like a lot of Trader Joe's Asian products and I feel like maybe these items weren't described well enough/cooked as well as they could've been.

    Firstly, Michelle was judging the JAPANESE fried rice as if it a Chinese one. Idk if they were told what they were eating, but it's a pretty important thing to do, in my opinion, if you're going to do a taste test and compare it to authentic products. There was edamame and nori in it, and for goodness sake, not all fried rice is the same. Vietnamese fried rice is different from Chinese fried rice. Japanese fried rice is as well. Every culture has its own variation.

    Secondly, homeboy needs to make his own opinion instead of waiting for her to answer and then just nodding and agreeing. At least, that what it looked like to me. Not trying to be rude, it just seemed like he was just echoing what she was saying and looking for a reaction from her first before responding.

    Thirdly, I've tried all the products they've had (and more). Best results are to wrap the baos in a damp paper towel and microwave to achieve the fluffy texture they were talking about. Fry the orange chicken a little hard to get some crunchy bits. Also, try the Chicken Soup Dumplings and Thai Tea Mochi. They're not half bad. Great price and very easy and quick to make. Not super authentic but will satisfy cravings.

  21. The reason the orange chicken is soggy is it was cooked on the stove. If you cook it in the oven and then add the sauce in a pan I will be good. Many of the trader joes things you can make yourself.

  22. Yo some asian Americans are so judgmental. Hijiki Fried rice is pretty good I personally think…and I’m from japan…(my parents are chinese) I think Trader Joe’s does pretty good job… I like their baos and soup dumplings too although they aren’t necessarily traditional they taste pretty decent…

  23. Hahahahaha. I love the difference between the two groups of people. Ones Lake hey it’s all right, and the other is like nope!
