At the start of the sixteenth episode of Food Wars, a rematch is occurring. Joichiro’s surprise visit seems to coincide with a desire to see how much his son, Soma, has learned so far at Totsuki.
Who will win this match? ^.^
Similar to an official shokugeki, there are three judges to taste test the dishes – Fumio, Isshiki, and Megumi.
Soma recalls that his first match against his dad was in sixth grade!
Megumi asks how many times he’s beat his dad. Soma acts nonchalant, but Joichiro reminds him that he’s lost nearly 500 times without one win!
Soma never gives up.
Soma finishes his dish and presents it to the judges – apple-flavored risotto.
The judges loved Soma’s dish, but here comes Joichiro’s. Although the three taste testers were imagining a gourmet dish cooked by a master chef, Joichiro hands them ramen! And it’s a very thick looking ramen, which doesn’t seem that appealing given it’s only 6 in the morning!
But, it’s delicious. Albeit the broth’s thick appearance, it’s incredibly light! And there’s so many flavors from around the world in the dish!
And, amazingly, Joichiro’s rich-tasting ramen did not include animal stock! The beef flavor came from only vegetables!
The winner is unanimous – Joichiro.
Whereas Soma’s dish tried to minimize the possibility of not meeting the judges’ individual needs, Joichiro’s dish tried to maximize their satisfaction.
Joichiro and Soma communicate through cooking. Soma’s dad tells him to not lose to anyone else before he beats him. Soma agrees.
Joichiro leaves Totsuki.
While Erina is driving in her car, she thinks she sees Joichiro. She tells the driver to stop, and she immediately leaves the car, hoping to see him.
It was just her imagination.
