Hi guys! This is volume 5 of Food Wars! and it’s going to be a good one! A breakfast challenge for the group and Soma seems to have made a mistake.
The assignment is to invent a new dish worthy of appearing on the high-class Totsuki Resort’s breakfast menu. To create their dishes, Soma and his friends use the combined knowledge and confidence they’ve gained while at the cooking camp to individually pass the challenge—everyone, that is, except for Soma! Having made a critical error, he finds himself behind with little time left. What can he do to overcome his biggest hurdle yet?!
I think that while the competition was good, especially seeing Soma overcome his own particular challenge of his own creating; but, the best part for me was seeing Soma go home to air out Yukihara and see a new chicken chain has come in and taken away nearly all the customers of the street market. So, Soma does what Soma does best: he thinks of a way to brings back the customers to the nearly dying local businesses.
I loved seeing Nikumi come out to help Soma and his hometown, and she gets to see where Soma comes from and how his background affects his own cooking. What are some things that intrigue about someone’s background? Why do these things pique your interest? Comment below and let me know!
