Restaurant to Another World

Restaurant to Another World

There is a certain restaurant in the first basement level of a multi-tenant building in one corner of a shopping street near the office district. The historical 70-year-old restaurant, marked by a sign with a picture of a cat, is called "Western Cuisine Nekoya." This restaurant looks completely normal through the week, but on Saturdays, it opens in secret exclusively to some very unique guests. During these hours, doors in various areas of a parallel world open to allow customers of many different races and cultures into the restaurant.

Reasons you might like Restaurant to Another World...

AnnaSartin AnnaSartin says...

Pretty much the exact same plot in both show. Person from a fantasy world visits a restaurant on Earth, tries the food and finds it to be The Best Thing Ever Tasted.

The two are exactly the same show, but Restaurant to Another World does it right. Restaurant to Another World is more focused, doesn't have the annoying text overlay, and has more memorable characters and episode structures.

CanadianTeemo CanadianTeemo says...

Both anime have the same theme, people from all social statuses, noble or poor, coming to the cafe/restaurant to try the 'otherworldly' (Japanese) food. The anime expresses the tastiness and texture of the meals, so when you watch them you get a mouthwatering hungry feeling.

Quartzik Quartzik says...

Both shows are centered around a restaurant in another world which can go both ways (meaning that they aren't completely isolated, but they also have some forms of attatchments to both worlds). They are also filled with people happily eating, but Isekai Izakaya experiences more difficulties and challenges.The main differences in these shows are the stories - the stories of Restaurant to Another World are centered around the patrons and not focused on the impact it has on the restaurant itself. Izakaya is more focused on the restaurant and the changes which occur, including problems which appear due to their location, etc. Both are very happy and kind - an atmosphere which radiates friendliness and good food - but if you're looking for actual cooking, Izakaya is the one for you (as they also demo some of the foods at the end of episodes), and Restaurant to Another World is more cute and friendly about the characters themself.

I would recommend both if you like watching either people enjoy food, cooking, or characters which somehow or somewhat have their lives changed by the good food both chefs prepare in these shows. They're good!

and after watching both, i'm hungry. i want food.

This is the "Great-Valu" version of Restaurant To Another World. Just watch this other, far superior show about fantasy worlds and food.

if you're looking for something that have both aspects of detailed foods, enjoying said foods in a light atmosphere than look no further! both function with the idea of food and gathering, with otherworldly appetites.

Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits

Mushishi

Mushishi

It isn't unusual for a person to feel that the world around them is strange and has unexpected secrets lying just beyond their sight. However, for most people this is just an occasional sensation that greets them upon awakening or chases them into sleep. For the mushi researcher Ginko, it isn't a feeling at all; it is a knowledge which guides his travels and motivates his life. Found in the cracks between what is conceivable and what is not, are the varied life forms collectively known as mushi. They surround us and affect us, but their intensely different nature makes them unrecognizable to most. Ginko brings these life forms into perspective for the lives of those most affected and most in need of an explanation.

They existed long before anyone can remember. They are simple and strange in nature, not resembling any other plant or animal in this world. In ancient times, people revered these bizarre creatures and called them “Mushi.” People once again began to believe in the existence of these “Mushi” when they began affecting their lives in inexplicable ways. The one who connects the world of “Mushi” to the world of humans—they were called the “Mushi-shi.” All life exists not to hinder others in this world. They are simply there to live as they were meant to.

Kodoku no Gourmet

Kodoku no Gourmet

Goro Inogashira eats and indulges at restaurants or ramen shops found on any street corners. He has become a liberal foodie removed from social obligations for a fleeting moment to satisfy his hunger. Solitary Gourmet… That’s the solitary process of eating without interruption or worry that gives the most comfort to people equally.

Wakako-zake

Wakako-zake

Murasaki Wakako is a 26-year-old OL that loves nothing more than delicious food and drink. Wakako's favorite thing to do for relaxation is to go off by herself after work and go to various places to eat and drink, even if she's never been there before. The moment Wakako is able to taste the pairing between the food she wants to eat and the perfect accompanying drink, the happy sound of "Pshuuu" leaves her lips. Now, then. Where shall we drink tonight?
