“Western Cuisine Nekoya” seems like a typical restaurant on the outside, but it hides an amazing secret: on Saturdays, portals to another world appear that allow all manner of unearthly creatures to sit down for a nice meal. Elves, dragons, or anyone else who wants to sample our world’s cuisine is welcome to partake before returning to their world, sated and ready for their next quest. This lovely light novel series, never before published in English, celebrates even the simplest of our foods as fantastical adventures in fine dining. Bon appétit!
Inuzuka launched the story on the Shōsetsu-ka ni Narō (literally, “Let’s Become Novelists”) website in 2013, and Shufunotomo‘s Hero Bunko imprint published the first print volume in February 2015. Inami has been drawing the illustrations. The fifth volume shipped in Japan in March 2019.
