Before this chapter I as well thought Koma would not get any stronger. However ever since this chapter I believe the author is trying to match a opponent against Komatsu. As such he will get stronger eventually. Furthermore as already mentioned, in this manga every skilled cook is physically capable, so I don't think Koma will be left out.
