Soma is pushing his latest soba creation to the judges in the latest chapter of "Shokugeki no Soma." Although unconventional, the reaction of the judges was at par with Kinokuni's master soba dish.
Chapter 213 Recap
Chapter 213 of the popular manga series "Shokugeki no Soma" is already available for reading through Manga Stream. The latest chapter revealed that Soma used an unconventional method of creating his soba by taking advantage of the "third flour" in order to lock-in the flavor of his dish even when cooked in a strong fire.
It was revealed that the freshman got his start in preparing the dish even before the regimental shokugeki. He was experimenting with different types of noodles so he could create his very own yakisoba. Isshiki also aided the student chef in preparing for upcoming battles by learning more about the expertise of different chefs from Central.
The chapter ended with the judges announcing that they have made a unanimous decision although the winner was not revealed. They did indicate that the winner offered a strong soba flavor.
Soma Winning the First Round
The Reddit reactions on the latest chapter of the manga predicts that Soma will clearly win this round. Noting that Soma's unique flavors and use of a different type of flour pushes the flavor altogether. Isshiki is also expected to win his cook-off which means it will be a sweep for the rebel students on the first round.
But things will not be as easy for Soma and the rest of the rebel students in the upcoming rounds. However, one of the school's best student chefs is on their side and will use everything to get the rebel students advance: Erina. Soma will be announced as the winner in the first round and Erina will show her advanced cooking skills against Central.
