If you're looking for manga similar to Bambino!, you might like these titles.
Soma Yukihira's old man runs a small family restaurant in the less savory end of town. Aiming to one day surpass his father's culinary prowess, Soma hones his skills day in and day out until one day, out of the blue, his father decides to enroll Soma in a classy culinary school! Can Soma really cut it in a school that prides itself on a 10 percent graduation rate? And can he convince the beautiful, domineering heiress of the school that he belongs there at all?!
Fundamentally, they're completely different. Bambino focuses on Italian cuisine and delves into a restaurant's inner clockwork, from the main floor servers to the kitchen cooking while Shokugeki no Soma spreads it's wings with Japanese cooking, Italian and about a half dozen other nation cuisines.
Nevertheless, both focus on food and it does that exceptionally well. You can just see the passion pour from the page as meals and prepared foods are presented with gorgeous art and scrumptious descriptions, and some of those descriptions go on for lines, about the food and even some history about the ingredients from time to time. Pretty sure this is research done right.
These two are some real good food manga, character development and comedy occur with some real good bouts of intensity but first and foremost are the chefs and the meals they prepare with the soul within both. Doesn't get much better than these two.
Only a handful of restaurants have the honor of being awarded a Michelin Star. Does our up and coming chef have the courage and the skills to overcome all obstacles? Rivalries and Romance, are they an obstacle or a catalyst to become the first chef to receive a Michelin Star in Korea?
There's definitely a lot of similarities between Bambino and Michelin Star, the most obvious being food. Unlike michelin, Bambino is set in an Italian restaurant and isn't an amazing chef from the start. You follow the character as he learns and grows and some of the food drawings will make your mouth water.
The restaurant Dollhouse: wouldn’t you like to eat at a place people call “the restaurant of bliss”? You’ll surely look at the world differently on your way home!
THOUGHT FOR FOOD This is the book in which nothing happens but everything is consumed! Like 'The Walking Man' at lunch!! What do we learn about Mister Inogashira? He’s a sole, independent trader importing household and fashion goods from France. He is always busy but never rushed as he travels around Japan selling his wares. He’s a private person who, whilst he enjoys the company of women, prefers to remain a bachelor. He smokes cigarettes but never touches alcohol. But above all, he enjoys his food! He is The Solitary Gourmet! Each of the thirty-two chapters explores another dish in another restaurant in another part of town – from Tokyo to Tottori, from Osaka to hospital (yes!) and even ventures to an Algerian restaurant in Paris, eating and observing.
In an old-fashioned all-night food stall, the owner prepares various dishes to suit the tastes of different customers.
