Crunchyroll #68: Time Fuse Mapo Curry Noodles from Food Wars!

Learn how to make it here!

Everything we have been doing up to this point has just been a test, I swear. The black pepper bun, the mapo tofu…all good…but all just PRACTICE for what was to come. Soma outdoes himself, AND his competition with the Time Fuse Mapo Curry Noodles. It’s a dish that combines his original idea- the black pepper bun- with the noodles he knew his customers would enjoy, and with the food of his competitor, with a super special surprise- a curry filling in the meatball! There is so much going on with this recipe, it is both amazing and overwhelming. Seriously, I’ll give you a warning going into this- there are a LOT of steps involved. You have to want this dish to stick with making it. But is it worth it? Uhh….YES.

WE ARE BACK AGAIN, and where do I even start this week? With the fact that Soma invented a dough that can be a bread dough OR a pasta dough? With the fact that I don’t have the time to make bread doughs from scratch?! With the fact that a bunch of people accepted food from a complete stranger in this last episode?!?!

Whether you’re celebrating the end of the summer season or trying to cool off after the last episode of Juni Taisen, Love is Like a Cocktail presents a wonderfully refreshing drink this week.

Crunchyroll #64: Mapo Tofu from Shokugeki no Soma

IT’S HERE, my party people friends. Food Wars! Season 3 has arrived and I am beyond excited for its return! The first episode started off strong, setting up the rest of the season quite nicely. I loved the pacing- it moved along quickly, and introduced new characters and ideas with little fuss. Of course, being the first episode, they didn’t unload an ahhhh-maaaaaazing new dish on us to start, but I felt they did quite a nice job introducing at least one recipe to tide us over until they unleash the really good stuff. Mapo Tofu.

Caprese Martini from “Neo Yokio”

It’s a gross as you think it’s going to be. I had to see what it would taste like! Click over to see the video for my full reaction. Recipe is posted below. Make with caution- in my experience this is a highly divisive drink. You either love it or hate it. I tested it on many of my friends- it seems like the people who liked it enjoyed savory things more than sweet things. If you don’t like savory drinks, this might not be for you.

However, it’s 100% worth it for the memes. I brought the leftovers to a friend’s wedding, and it really spiced up the festivities and made it super classy. It helped that he was wearing a midnight blue suit to his own wedding. And, you guessed it- the suit was *sparklin*.

Crunchyroll #63: Curry Buns from “Restaurant to Another World”

Learn how to make it here! 

 

Honestly, for MONTHS now I’ve looked at Feast of Fiction’s Black Butler curry buns and silently stewed at home because they swooped my style. I won’t lie – I can be a bit of a petty person. I didn’t want to recreate the same recipe since they already did it, and I didn’t want to be a copy-cat, yadda yadda. So it goes. Looking back, I’m not sure why I was so dumb about it. Curry buns are AMAZING, and, thanks to Restaurant to Another World, I had my chance to make a personal comeback without having to make the recipe from Black Butler.

Hamburger steak, oh hamburger steak, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Actually, just kidding, why bother? I’m not a natural born poet- I’ll just come right out and say it: cheese filled hamburger steak is the food you never knew you needed, but always knew in your heart that you wanted. I mean, honestly, how can you go wrong?
