They dont really have much in common other than the whole cooking shtick but they both have a aimilar vibe to them and overall if you like one of them your probably going to be interested in the other

Both are very similar but have their own distinct story. Both have fun cooking fights with good characters that you have an emotional attachment with. 

Zoriyatsu Zoriyatsu says...

it both involves the genre of cooking also the feel of the anime from hells kitchen depicts a sorta Mirai nikki with Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro feel. Shokugeki makes me feel like reading addicted to curry again which has a GTO kinda feel

Both titles follow a main character who continually works to become better at cooking, through battles.  Both fit the Shounen archtype to a tee, and both have what could be considered romantic subplots.  The only real differences are the characters drive to perform and the level of fanservice, but overall the two will overlap their fanbase heavily.

However, when he arrives he discovers that he has to compete against over thirty people in an entrance exam; and to make matters worse, Kazuma arrives late, chopping off half of his total points from the get go!

Food that transends deliciousness is the name of the game, where the cooks and bakers of either series cook up the tastiest foods known to man while retaining the deliciousness of comedy and a pinch of drama to go along with the Iron Chef like culinary treats. All about the food and the cast that create them, pushing them farther and onto greater and better things.

Vestalarien Vestalarien says...

Both celebrate the delight and passion of cuisine and the artistry produced in the love of great food. Both Souma and Ken are great chefs capable of producing wonderous dishes from even the most simplistic of ingredients, to the amazement of their patrons.

The only difference is the time periods, with the focus of "Nobunaga" being more on the politics of the Eiroku-Genki eras of Japan.

Souma's visual style is very different to Nobunaga's, but they both share prominent evidence of their authors' passion and knowledge for food, making them both entertaining and informative.

Bambino!

Bambino!

The manga follows Ban as he struggles to keep up with the hectic workload and his co-workers, along with issues outside the kitchen like his relationship with his girlfriend Eri, who he left behind in Fukuoka.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

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.

LupaLunae LupaLunae says...

They both have simular senses of humor with a protagonist that is constantly underestimated but perserveers despite that. "Shokugeki no Souma" has a lot more ecchi moments, though. Also, they both have a female love interest whose feelings the main character is oblivious to. Both main characters are generally relaxed but can become very focused/serious when necessary.

Hope that helped!

Delicious in Dungeon

What do you get when you cross dungeon adventures and food manga? You get Delicious in Dungeon, where we find our troupe of adventurers on a mission to save their lost team member while figuring out how to survive on the food that the dungeon provides. When young adventurer Laios and his company are attacked and soundly thrashed by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all its money and provisions. They're eager to get right back to it, but there's just one problem: if they set out with no food or coin to speak of, they're sure to eat it on the way! But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: "Let's eat the monsters!" Slimes, basilisks, mimics, and even dragons...none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!
