Foodie Reading: Oishinbo


I’m not a huge manga reader, I grew up with comic books and graphic novels, but a friend of mine told me to check out this cool manga about Japanese food since I was a such a foodie monster.  I first read Oishinbo – Ramen and Gyoza volume and was totally hook by not just the art but the reading and explanation of certain Japanese dishes.  Each little episode takes a specific dish and through the characters explains the history of dish, ingredients, how it’s prepared and so on.  It’s like watching the Food Channel.  I really enjoyed all 7 volumes of this collection.  A bit of warning – you will be hungry and crave Japanese food after each little episode.

MSRP:  $12.99USD for print edition, $4.99USD for digital edition.

For more info, head to: Viz Media – Oishinbo.
