17 July 2017: Isekai Shokudou breaks all the rules about location, location, location

Aletta
I like Aletta even though she admitted her bodily fluids are not poisonous.

Food-based anime is all about reaction shots. Isekai Shokudō (Restaurant to Another World) is no different, but it does spice up the usual recipe by with its fantasy element and its somewhat unremarkable menu. As the title indicates, the restaurant in question features an entrance which pops up periodically in fantasy world locations, ensuring an eclectic mix of clientele who are amazed by the exquisite way food can taste when it does not consist entirely of plain boiled meat and wilted vegetables.

Bacon
Behold! Bacon!

Through two episodes, the anime has been whimsical and amusing enough that I consider it a success. I'm told it's similar to the Bartender anime from 2006 (which I have not seen). I also don't know anything about the Isekai Shokudō light novel, but based on its illustrations and the anime's promotional art, it seems the restaurant will be gaining another waitress.

Such is the power of fried meat.

Incidentally, the OP is by Wake Up, May'n!, a collaborative effort between the real-life Wake Up, Girls! idol troupe and May'n (Sheryl Nome's own bad self). This doesn't strike me as the most natural combination, but it is a good one, even if the resulting OP is a lot more energetic than I would have expected considering the tone of the anime itself. I'm definitely in favor of more Wake Up, May'n! and certainly looking forward to more Isekai Shokudō.
