Best YouTube Channels to Watch: Chef’s Labo

Photo Credit: (

With a lot of newfound time on my hands recently, I have been trying to cook a couple of dishes a week. While before I used to just cook with the same ingredients and style, I now know better and choose to follow recipes. All of my recent recipes have come from CHEF’S LABO Youtube channel, which is a channel that recently popped up on my explore.

CHEF’S LABO’s Youtube channel has a bunch of different videos on how to cook Japanese dishes ranging from yakisoba to fried rice to karaage to teriyaki chicken, etc. He has posted 31 videos so far, so if you are looking to find new Japanese recipes I would definitely check out one that interests you!

One of the great thing about CHEF’S LABO’s Youtube channel is that his recipes are really tasty, but also do not require anything too complicated. I am able to make most of his dishes without too much difficulty (although they probably do not taste anything like his), as a lot of the steps in his videos only require either boiling or stir fry. Also, it is super easy to follow all of CHEF LABO’s recipes as he lays them out nicely during the video (meticulously detailing his process step-by-step). As for the ingredients, they are listed in the comments section of his videos, so you can easily find out which ingredients you need beforehand.

I am nowhere near a master chef, but it is nice to learn some new techniques and dishes from someone who clearly has a lot of experience. It is also evident that CHEF’S LABO puts a lot of time and effort into editing his videos and making it easier for his viewers to follow along!

CHEF’S LABO Youtube Channel Recommendation Rating: 4

This post has now been updated to reflect a new ratings system that I have implemented, which is scored as follows:

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone

3: Something worth prioritizing if interested

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
