THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
It's nice to see treasure hunter Sarah getting screen time. Seems this show has a lovable cast so far with diverse personalities.

The food this episode looked very ordinary tbh but I think the anime captured the texture and details well. The mystery vibe also is nice and I kinda like how the show even gave a glimpse of Sarah's childhood. Second half of this episode really gave more of an adventure feel. It's interesting that travelers, adventurers, and all type of people finding this restaurant .

This episode was first two episode in novel,so I feel like these two should be first episode.
But overall,I loved this episode.
It's very good to see Isekaixgourmet anime!

I don't know this but it feel the show trying to throw some little hint about culture or civilization the other world without blatantly explain it, like the moon in background when the guy ran from monster or the value of shrimp in that world.

Where is this restaurant?! Good food, free water/bread/sauce refills, bro chef, cute maid..
There wasn't enough Aletta in this episode; but the story about the knight was quite interesting. If every customer tells a different story about their world, this could become one of my favorites this season. The treasure hunter didn't get nearly as much screen time, so they probably will just skip details about some characters unfortunately.

Great episode.

Looks like the door is present in multiple worlds and connects all of them to the restaurant. That answers my questions from last episode regarding the world setting. I actually really love this setup, I expect to see a lot of diversity in the customers and each with their own story should be a pleasure to watch. Really enjoyed both the stories from this episode. :)

Ha ha ha! You're not gonna get me twice with all that mouth watering food show, I came prepared with my own chocolate bar to ease the craving. XD
.......But the shrimp and meat cutlets looked so good. T.T

I love this show. This is an 8/10 on lock by episode 2 already as i don't see this show failing.

The author who had this idea needs a medal. I had goosebumps whenever they enjoyed the food. Also the characters and backstories surrounding them are enjoyable, too.

Oh man <3

Daily Meal restores fully your HP and MP/Stamina, it also gives you a boost on your stats for 6 days

Fried Shrimp heals 50% HP, Fully Restores your MP/Stamina and gives you a boost on MP/Stamina for 6 days

(I just made that out of imagination lol)

this is getting interesting and heartwarming too, boy I would like to go to that restaurant
If you find yourself disagreeing, please, don't do the following:

1. Call out on some superiority complex.
2. Rely on "If you don't like then don't watch it" in an attempt to defend your statements
3. Resorting to insults.

Director of this series should be paid in gold. The atmosphere is great. Almost nothing is happening, but I can't stop watching it. That's why I'm in love with SOL.

It seems the door connects to different worlds and is only available once every seven days on the Day of Satur. I loved the knight's reaction to fried shrimp. I like seeing how a character finds the door and knowing some backstory for them. The way they're being fed is so satisfying.

This just really makes me feel good by watching it. Seeing people with different stories coming to share a meal at this place relishing in good food? Yeah, it's a nice way to start the week with a feel good vibe.
Don't believe the hype.

You just said basically everything I wanted to say, lmao.

I still find funny how the knight took his time to repeat the fried shrimps while his partners were dying against the mothmen (though, I don't think it was that big of a deal, since he reached the duchy in enough time to save them, but it was still amusing).

Multiple doors appears every 7 days in fixed locations, the mystery deepens.
Treasure hunter girl and knight guy, the chef is generous.

For me this is a feel good anime. Episode 2 was great! I loved the treasure hunter girl she was cute! and the part with the shrimp made me tear up. He finally got to eat shrimp. this is one of those animes where you just enjoy the show with a good meal thats the best way to watch it. This show is one of those shows to lighten up your day which i love!it makes me wanna make shrimp again! this is a hidden gem for sure. I dig the style and the animation and alleta is sooo cute!! i want to see more of her shes so bashful :D

The fact that it took me until the end of the episode to realize that the Day of Satur was basically their way of saying Saturday made me feel dumb lol.

Another nice episode, I really like the calm nature of this show. It's amazing how a show about a bunch of people from different walks of life stumbling upon this restaurant to enjoy delicious food could be so enjoyable.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

And yeah man, you can't watch this show on an empty stomach otherwise you will suffer like hell xD

The idea of this show,the relaxed atmosphere as well as the optic of the food are indeed good.

Yet I think this show will loose it's touch after a couple of episodes.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

You take this bullshit back because if you look at MAL's top 500 anime there's not that much ecchi at all. There's a lot of action but there's also SoL and other types of series too.
If you look at Summer 2017 this one isn't scored highest but it's far from being too low. There's 19 other series behind it in score right now.

The hidden gem of the summer season strikes again! =)

Two different characters have their spotlight in encountering the door to the Nekoya restaurant on the Day of Satur, which is Saturday for them I assume. Still, seeing both reactions of the treasure hunter and knight as they ate their Meat Cutlets and Fried Shrimp respectively never got stale.

Their tales of their visit to the Nekoya restaurant always put a big smile on my face. It was the same reaction and satisfaction I had when I first watched Gourmet Girls Graffiti and Food Wars back in 2015, even if both of those shows differ slightly from each other and this show, but their passion for beautifully made food always gets me hungry. =P

I'm hoping next weeks serving will be as delicious and satisfying as this one is. =)

I love this so much. The resturant being a treasure hunter's last great secret actually made me tear up a bit, for some reason. This place clearly has a long history. If Isekai Shokudou keeps being this good, it'll probably end up as my AOTS.

What a max comfy atmosphere. To think I'd seriously enjoy watching an animated show about people eating.

Really like the treasure hunter's character design for some reason... I hope she comes back.

Didn't like this episode as much as I thought I would... I like Aletta and Tenshu, and don't mind the pace, but the stories were a bit underwhelming. Still giving it a chance though.

That fried shrimp did look good.
...but then again, I unironically like Warau Salesman.

I came here to say the very same thing! So glad I wasn't the only one to think that.

I'll try to put it into words...
She's clearly cute but not in a girly/loli/over-moe way
She's mature looking but not in the traditional hypersexualized way
The costume looks cool and practical while still being feminine

I wish we had more character designs like hers across all anime in general.

I completely agree, although we know that's not happening with all the fan-service and oppai-obsessed people basically funding the industry. Apparently, the character designer for the show's source material and Baccano's are the same.

Day of Satur...so Saturdays...one of the busiest days of the week in most cases, though don't know if that also applies to the number of doors in the other world appearing all at once or one at a time.

This makes me interested in the way the door works now. Would be it possible to go in from one location, and later leave together with another customer who came in from another location and instantly be transported to a distant territory? Otherwise, I would assume a single customer leaves from the same door they came in through on the other side. If I were a peddler/merchant, I'd try to exploit this feature somehow by trying to get the other patrons as collaborators. Or if it's not possible, then just take my chances, follow another customer out when they leave, while carrying enough food and water for a week in a worst case scenario until I can get back in on Saturday and try again...all the while enjoying good food once a week.

Despite the very different backstories of our two other worlders today, by time they made it to the restaurant I felt like I was watching the exact same thing:

1. "Nani is this place?"
2. "Hmm this looks omoshiroi."
3. "OMFG IT'S OISHI!"
4. "Okawari, good sir!"

I like the show's atmosphere and SOL in general, but I'm worried about it becoming too repetitive for my tastes. Let's see how next week goes.

Give me more dragon lady. She was interesting.
