Food porn in anime

These anime have mouthwatering, delectable food porn shots within. Either it's the basis of the full series, or incredible food shots appear sporadically in only a few episodes. Call out titles that should be in the list in the comments - if there's a shot only in specific episodes, let me know for the 'reason'!

Nice list! xxxHolic is notably missing- Watanuki is always cooking up something tasty, and there's the oden stand too. I feel like I should hesitate to suggest this one- but A Sister's All You Need has the characters regularly eating incredibly delicious looking food almost every episode. If I had a younger sibling making me meals, I guess I wouldn't be looking elsewhere either. Also, the new Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen is all about the incredible variety of ramen in Japan- it's enough to make anyone drool.
