Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World) is a fantasy mystery light novel series written by Junpei Inuzuka. The series launched in 2013 on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website. To date a total of 3 compile volumes have been published by Shufunotomo’s Hero Bunko imprint, with illustrations by Katsumi Enami. A manga adaptation of the series began in November 2016 being published under Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
At the bottom floor of the building with a dog signboard, in the shopping district near the office street, there lies a cafeteria called “Youshoku no Nekoya,” that has an illustration of a cat on the door. It’s been open for fifty years and has satisfied various salarymen from nearby offices. Despite it being called a Western cuisine cafeteria, it also provides other varieties of menus. For the people of this certain world, it’s their one-and-only special cafeteria.
There is, however, one secret to “Nekoya.” The cafeteria is closed to the public every Saturday in order to make way for special guests. When a bell rings, customers from different places of birth and races appear who ask for mysterious and delicious dishes. They are actually the same dishes served to the salarymen, but these special guests find them to be more exotic than to what they are used to. As the cafeteria aims to serve masterpieces, it is usually referred as “Isekai Shokudou.”
And so, the bell rings again this week.
A TV anime adaptation of Isekai Shokudou has been announced and is scheduled to air through the Summer 2017 anime season, which generally starts in July. Further details about the series will be revealed at a later date.
