At the start of the seventeenth episode of Food Wars, we are back in Soma’s hometown! ^.^ A childhood friend of Soma’s, Kurase, and her friends are walking by the closed Yukihira diner. Kurase’s friends tease her for still liking Soma.
All of the sudden, Soma opens the door to his family’s diner!
Soma is back home for school break. And once word (really quickly) spreads around town that Soma is back, a huge crowd shows up asking for classic Yukihira food. It’s time to cook!
After the neighbors and customers leave, the town’s mayor, Tomita Yuya , sulks about the town’s current predicament.
No one has been coming to the town’s food district ever since a competing karaage vendor opened up in the city’s transportation station.
Soma, determined to help his town and friends, proclaims that they’re going to get their customers back with their own karaage recipe!
Kurase “volunteers” to help Soma ^.^
Soma also calls Ikumi for help. As she’s a meat expert, her assistance would be invaluable in this karaage endeavor.
Ikumi and Karuse meet the next day at Soma’s diner.
Ikumi and Karuse are both surprised that Soma invited someone else. Karuse is more scared whereas Ikumi is more angry ^.^
The three check out the karaage restaurant. There, they unexpectedly see the town’s mayor in an undercover outfit.
They also meet the karaage restaurant’s empress, Nakamozu Kinu.
After their reconnaissance, the chefs begin experimenting different karaage recipes. Unfortunately, each dish falls short of Mozuya’s karaage.
Mozuya has been able to expand so quickly because Nakamozu has been working with a consultant.
Soma remembers Karuse saying that they should capitalize on their town’s own strengths, which helps Soma think of a plan!
It’s not over yet! Let’s bring back our customers! ^.^
