At the start of the second episode of Food Wars, there is a gorilla! This unexpected and unusual character is bathing in a hot spring with a very pretty girl, Erina. But what is going on?


In fact, these type of scenes are actually quite normal to Erina. When Erina tastes, she pictures food and taste much more vividly than the normal chef. Erina has the God Tongue, which allows her to pinpoint and clearly identify a dish’s strengths and weaknesses. This gorilla, unfortunately for the chef (or should we say chefs), is a very bad sign.


Erina is one of the most respected and regarded chefs, albeit her age, in gourmet cuisine. Chefs and restaurants from around the world inquire if Erina would taste-test their own dishes.


Soma is still amazed at the grandiose of the cooking school! He talks to his Dad on the phone. His Dad is surprisingly in New York!  Since a few days ago, Soma’s Dad has already traveled around the world and has been cooking for the elites of society.


Soma’s Dad jocks Soma that he better not lose to anyone until he beats him, which only fires up Soma even more.


On school grounds, Soma quickly realizes that his fellow students (or rather, competitors) belong to the upper-ends of the culinary world, and severely look down on a “commoner” who runs a diner.



Soma and other potential-transfers come to the testing room where all but Soma stand aghast. The examiner is Erina! And if Erina says one bad remark about your cooking, you’ll never be able to cook again in Japan. That is how revered Erina is – one word can forever ruin your trajectory in culinary cuisine.

All of the students frantically run out of the room.



Erina and her assistant are surprised to see that she has a challenger! Soma ^.^



Soma’s test is to create a dish that uses the egg as the main ingredient. He accepts!



Erina and her assistant think very lowly of Soma when he tells them that he’s making rice with seasoning. However, Soma soon tells them that it’s no ordinary dish – it’s rice with transforming seasoning!


Erina wants to resist the dish due to her disrespect of Soma, but the lingering smell is too powerful!



Lunch is served!




Although the dish is not like anything she has ever tasted, she can’t bear to tell Soma that she loved his dish. So, Erina covers her true feelings for the dish by yelling that it’s disgusting.

As such, Soma fails the test…


Is this the end of the series already? Find out next time! ^.^
