Gotcha! Pork Roast
The king of creation Soma presented this take on a pork roast, using potatoes, onions, and mushrooms to imitate meat after the meat products in his kitchen are sabotaged. He wrapped his mixture with bacon and herbs, then poured a red wine sauce over it to finish it off.
Chaliapin Steak Bowl
Soma delivered this winning dish in his first shokugeki, defeating Meat Queen, Ikumi Mito. It's a juicy sirloin steak served over rice and topped with minced onions.
A5 Japanese Beef Roti Bowl
The "Meat General" Ikumi Mito crafted this masterful rice dish in her shokugeki against Soma, using the highest grade of beef you can find in Japan. Sadly, Soma's Chaliapin managed to secure the win.
Dongpo Pork Curry Bowl
Nothing less from "Nikumi" Mito, her contribution to the Autumn Election's preliminary round was a rice bowl style dish with saucy spiced pork belly, served over hot white rice with bok choy and more.
