At first I thought this is some kind of lizard porn, but then I rechecked, and it still was episode 4 of Isekai Shokudou... Strange idea, but I guess it was ok.

Vegan elf story was quite bad. No meat, fish, milk or eggs in human cuisine? That's like one third of human cuisine, are you kidding? Or in that world there is some kind of death penalty for not eating ingredients of animal origin in every dish? OMFG.

OK, but disappointing, previous episode was muuuuuuuch better.

Those different omelette rice dishes looked so delicious, I need to try omelette rice at some point in my life.

Even in anime, the vegans are obnoxious. And just in case any vegans potentially read this comment and get triggered, yes, I'm joking (kind of sad that I even have to put this disclaimer but you know how sensitive people are nowadays).
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.

It's nice to see elves as vegan. Tolkien based his elves on the hippies of the 70's.
In some stories they only hunt what they need but in other they live in the forests and interfere as little as possible with the natural ecosystem.


I don't think Tolkien based his elves on the hippies of the 70's. The Hobbit was written in the 1930s, and eventually the Lord of the Rings was published in the early 1950s. Tolkien died in 1973 (around 80 years old).

I liked the lizardman scene a lot. It reminded me of an ethnographic documentary, like from National Geographic, especially at first. I like the way it was presented.

The elves are vegan. (or at least this particular elf) So....why is she carrying a bow? It's definitely not for hunting. She seems to get along quite well with the forest creatures, so it doesn't look like it's for protection either.

I can't get over the music in this anime It's so calming and relaxing, it's wonderful.

Dammit when is Kuro going to show up!

I liked how the Lizardmen were so hyped about eating Omurice I thought that was pretty funny.

Also I love how the Elf wanted Tofu, that actually makes sense since Elves are more known to be one with Nature and go for a more Vegan life style. That was awesome.

More Elves next week and LION!!!!

That first half just sucked. I'm here to watch lizard men eat food, not to watch them strip with a half-assed nature documentary. It was boring, out-of-place, and unnecessary. They could have just showed us the lizard people doing daily activities leading up to the Day of Satur and the show would have significantly benefited from it. Show, don't tell.

The second half was good though. This show perfectly captures restaurant atmosphere, and its fun and accurate to hear patrons scream over each other to order. Watching the elf's hostility melt away into bliss after her tofu steak is perfect, and it conveys this weird emotion that I can't really describe but is a big part of my draw to this show.

That being said, it has gotten too formulaic for my taste. The first few episodes introduced some interesting world-building, as well as a theme of food bringing back nostalgic memories of the people you once shared it with. The only new info this time is that the door appears thanks to teleportation magic, and that was just from a throwaway line. Very little in the way of those topics were explored in the previous few episodes. What is the deal with that dragon from episode 1 who claims the door as her treasure? Why is Aletta her treasure as well, and what is Aletta's current status in the other world? Who is William Gold and what is his tie to Nekoya and its owner? Why does the door appear in these other worlds and if it is teleportation magic, who is responsible for it? I hope it revises the formula soon and starts giving some answers as well as food.

Solid episode overall though. 3/5

The first part was weird... the second part was nice with vegan elves, though the quality of the visuals were often lacking like most of the budget was spent on drawing the food and the close ups on the lizard hero lol. Looking forward to seeing more elves in the next episode(s).

Nekoya makes their own ketchup...interesting how it's done in-house on a small scale. Those omlette rice dishes though...looks delicious, especially that bacon and cheese omplette.

#lizardmanporn.

Question: do lizards IRL have a tail-smacking on the ground behavior? At least I know lizardmen men have no penises as evidenced here. Good thing too, because I was too curious and found out about hemipenis--don't google that. Basically two-spiky penises in one.


Looks like the elf is a vegan. I can respect that, but not how she poo-poos on all the other food, even the bread, making the people eating look like monsters. Like c'mon, next thing you know, she'll be asking for her water to be gluten free. I hope the new elf next episode has some kind of drama with this one next week.

Perfect timing though, as I had tofu for dinner while watching this, though it was fried tofu over rice.

Also unexpected breastfeeding. Was the tofu nostalgic because it felt like tits in her mouth?

Great episode. Never thought I would see a Lizardman eat omelette rice, but it looked so delicious.
Love seeing the raw ingredients & preparation before the dish is made. All the Lizardmen are so happy to see the food.

Fardania is a cute elf. That tofu steak looks good.

With the narration in the first half of the episode it felt like I was reading a novel, this part was probably intentionally directed with that thought in mind. It was a nice touch tbh

Impressively, they managed to find a way to make this even more boring as usual in the first half (crappy lizard-man documentary/porno, seriously?) while the second half was a bit better but not very interesting either. Also, what was with the random shot of breastfeeding just before the ED began? It felt very random and out of place.

When I saw the preview of the last episode I was kind of expecting the girl to be vegetarian and thought that she would be eating the omuraisu (didn't know omuraisu contains chicken). And I was actually expecting the lizardmen to eat something more meaty.

This second half of this episode is the only thing that made this show worthwhile for me, the Elf was really pretty and "vegan" was really unexpected coming from a Japanese series. The tofu didn't look all that appetizing to me though.

Indeed the first part seemed weird until I realized they were doing it like those National Geographic documentary lol..

I would think protection, maybe from bandits and such, and sides, mushrooms can be quiet deadly when wounded, you better come prepared!! ahem :>

Those omelettes descriptions sounded delicious!
And vegan elfs! Cannot say it was unexpected
What it was unexpected was the breast feeding final, what was that about?that doesn't have anything to do with cooking!
And she left home completely empty handed! No wonder her father was so worried XD

Tbh I really hate the anime with narrator like the first half of the episode and I still think the side story about each customer wasn't really necessary (except if they'll appear again or something like that). But the food that they present is really good and it's worth to watch.
Fine episode.

That tofu Steak and Omurice has me all drooling now....
The lizardman's story was nice in showing how all different species have different lifespans in this world. Being the "Hero" of his tribe for the last 30 some years seems to have a lotta perks, eh?

As for elf girl, going by her story and the way her father wanted to hand her that letter, I get the feeling that her mother may have been a previous frequenter of the restaurant before.

Loving the chill aspect of this show to be honest. It all feels so great just watching everyone eat their favorite foods..... well for the eyes anyway (less so for my stomach XD)

AAAA why does this anime is such a godtier level?! Can't get enough of the soothing atmosphere.
And of all the episodes they had to make this one more detailed about about the food *Q*

It's actually surprising those lizardmen didn't raid that restaurant lol. And was the food enough for all of them? XD

the Elven girl was sure cute. Hope I get to see her more later on.

I hate vegans but this elf was just so cute....

This show has so much potential and yet the people who are making it don't seem to realize that, they're sticking to a formulaic plot and eventhough the characters are colourful, the story isn't making it very interesting...

Discovery Channel hype! More of Lizardmen documentary please. I smiled like an idiot cause that was pretty awesome.

The elf was great, loved the ending shots of her, very sincere as always making me teary-eyed.

The formula just works like a charm, watching this weekly is the greatest experience for this type of anime, i feel like a lot of the charm gets lost when binging.

This is absolutely the best show of the season and i have it at 9/10 at this point.

100% agree. Only thing to add is that the rabbit was lol.

Good epsiode.

Against my expectations this show manages to stay fresh with it's concept. The different approaches each time are well done. This time we got a lizard man who brings food home and and an ambitious elf.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

I find it rather cool that the lizardfolk and sylvan elves stick mostly to the old paper and pencil RPG canon. I'm not sure who created the first game version, possibly Gary Gygax back in the mid-70's. I didn't know that the sylvan elves are vegan, but I do recall that green was a popular color, inhabit forests, and prefer bows.

It looks like adorable elf girl will be joining the restaurant staff shortly.

And you see, that's why I made that comment, I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. Breastfeeding isn't fan service and shouldn't be looked at sexually but having this argument on a forum like this is probably not gonna go anywhere -.-

lol I was so confused as to why she had a bow but healed the deer til I found out she was vegan (leading to the realization that it was for self defense)

I'm vegan myself so it was reallllllly nice to have some vegfood porn, although now I'm cooking tofu for myself so maaybe it wasn't such a great thing jajajaj

I have no desire to debate about the ethics surrounding dairy, but I figured I'd clarify why that is: Cows/goats/ect only produce milk when they need to nurse their children so to get their milk you have to breed them and take away their baby without their consent (obviously since they don't speak English) while human mothers make the choice to feed their child breast milk so there's no reason to consider it unethical.

Lol thought the lizard half of the episode was kind of strange. Watching him slowly bathe and dry himself wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Overall it was still an enjoyable episode though- it was nice to see the chef get a bit of a challenge to make vegan food.
