Souma(thinks): ---10 dishes.
Souma(thinks): They got all finished at the exact same time! What precision...
Souma(thinks): What is this...!?
Souma(thinks): It's so spicy my tongue feels like it's burning...
Souma(thinks): But a delicious flavor arises in succession!!
Souma(thinks): It's fundamentally different
Souma(thinks): From Yukihira's Mapo doufu!!
Souma(thinks): And all the dishes taste exactly the same---!!

Terunori: This is true spiciness, Yukihira-chin.
Terunori: This intense combination of spiciness and deliciousness...
Terunori: You'll never beat it with a special-of-the-day restaurant's flavor, will you?
Terunori: And all of my guys are trained so that they can perfectly reproduce this flavor.
Terunori: It was me who trained them!

Terunori: Ermmm, so how are you doing, Yukihira-chin?
Terunori: You're one person...
