This was a difficult set to write because it was difficult to whittle down the list to seven. This week/month, I’ve been reading various food manga and here are the seven titles that I enjoyed… right now. I have a feeling that if I read the other stories, I’d probably go to my wits and them here. But right now, these are the titles that we’ll all probably enjoy, regardless if we love manga or food a little more than the other.
Guys, what’s not good without bacon?
We all know how everything tastes better with bacon and even Oishinbo recognized this fact!
When Kurita’s grandmother was getting suspicious of her friend’s disappearances, she asks Kurita to investigate what her friend was up to. They ended up looking in a shack with nothing but an empty nabe in the middle. Unable to solve this mystery, Kurita turns to Yamaoka for help.
With the countless amount of recipes in Oishinbo, it was a difficult task to sort what food to cook. All of them looked appetizing. Most of them read like they’re the greatest dish we could ever taste! And there are some that have flavors we could only dream of.
However, I realized that after my post on a recipe taken from Yoshinaga Fumi’s Kinou Nani Tabeta, not a lot of people have access to Japanese goods and it’s rather sad that the pleasure of eating food from a manga was mine alone.
Thus, I took the task to choose dishes that we can all eat! Not all of us might be able to find some shiso leaves and freshly cut bamboo but I think, at the very least, some rice would be available to all.
For this MMF, I will be cooking a couple of dishes from Oishinbo. I think some folks are trying other dishes from other manga, but at least here, we’re gunning for a homebrew of the Ultimate Menu.
For tonight’s dinner, we’re serving Beef Garlic Rice Bowl.
