Toriko and One Piece share a massive world which is build up brilliantly. Both feature a great cast of shounen characters that develop strongly throughout the series in a series of adventures and missions.

Both the shows involve eating. While toriko is more battle oriented, shokugeki takes place inside the kitchen. Add over the top reactions and you basically got very yummy and tasty animes

These anime focus on manly characters but Toriko does not have the same tragic content as featured in Hokuto no Ken. In terms of quality and characterization, Hokuto no Ken is better but Toriko is the closest thing to a modern day Fist of the North Star due to the following: 1. The Four Heavenly Kings are adopted "siblings" while Hokuto no Ken also has a main cast of four adopted brothers. 2. The characters Toriko, Zebra & Coco are inspired by Kenshiro, Raoh & Toki. 3. Both series were stricken by war and famine. 4. The concept of "Knocking" is similar to Hokuto Shinken as it stops a  read more

The concept of hunting for exotic food instantly reminded me of Hunter x Hunter, although it was only mentioned in a few episodes in this series.

Both of the main characters like to punch the shit out of animals and then eat them.

Unique, powerful monsters in an interesting land that leaves you wanting more. In Toriko, you capture food, which 9/10 times tend to be these awfully powerful beasts that even puts any legendary pokemon to shame.

GAR, rule-of-cool, fighting mutant animals by taking their traits, and an alien evolution conspiracy.

Both are typical shonens, Both have characters with unique power and both have similar power of Stand = Appetite Demons(Toriko).

Fantasy anime about making food out of monsters.

Both shows focus on masculine heroes who each have respect for wildlife and nature. Toriko's anime consists of adventure and battles utilizing creative super powers. Jungle King Tar-chan contains perverted humor but displays an immense variety to its story such as: ki-using martial artists, cyborgs, wrestlers, and even vampires. There is also a "savage" undertone found within the personalities of Toriko and Tar-chan when they are fighting. Between the two, Jungle King Tar-chan is the anime with the better story specifically from episode 31 onward.

Both Anime is fighting giant things alive from getting eaten. As to Toriko, Think about the name " Shingeki no Kyojin Kemono" but can eat beast as Shingeki no Kyojin is about humanoid giant people know as Titans that you can kill.

Both series have a dark society trying to gain control of the Cooking World in order to achieve world domination. Cooking Master Boy uses cooking battles while Toriko uses physical fighting. And if blue hair is your thing, they both have it. 
report Recommended by Feito
While Toriko isn't exactly a mecha, it shares the concept of something being so bad it's awesome. Both are very testosterone fueled anime, but both also share tremendously bad writing. Luckily, there are moments in both that you can't help but smile at so the awesome overshadows the bad.

Both are hilarious as heck. 
report Recommended by MJSpice
Both series deal with a lot of food and it features similar characters. They both feature battles, which in Toriko are actually battles using supernatural attacks and martial arts, while Yakitate!! Japan actually battles through the art of cooking. 
report Recommended by Xadyu3000
For better or worse both series are based on manga with gritty combat, however their anime adaptations contain a childish tone and reduced violence from its source material. If that doesn't bother you, then give these masculine shonens a try with Ultimate Muscle featuring zany superhero wrestling & Toriko displaying multiple super powers.
