Toriko: Japanese Gourmet Food Anime
Toriko is a show, available on Hulu Plus, that runs about 30 minutes per episode and is all about the search for gourmet food. The main character, Toriko, is a muscle-y man who is searching for obscure (and unreal--like gararagator) ingredients with a small male chef tag-a-long. there are dozens of episodes and they are unusual, but I thought some SE folks might enjoy them.
I quote, "The quest of the gourmet hunter- my dream is to make a full course meal out of life..."
Also, the theme song contains such gems as "Guts Gits Gobble Guts."
Let me know if you are/have watched it.
