Isekai Izakaya: Japanese Food From Another World

The food in this anime looks just as mouth-watering and delicious as the meals found in Campfire Cooking.

Furthermore, fans will enjoy learning about each customer’s life as they dine in the owner’s restaurant. Seeing them develop new connections with others is just as wholesome as the relationships Mukoda forges in his fantasy realm.

Laid-Back Camp

Similarities – Tone & Themes

Laid-Back Camp is an incredibly wholesome slice-of-life anime with similar themes to Campfire Cooking. It offers a beautiful tale about the developing friendship between Rin, Nadeshiko, and others. It may not take place in the fantasy realm, but the visuals and tone of this work will make you believe our cast is living in one.

Furthermore, both stories have their respective protagonists indulging in similar human affairs from conversing with strangers to enjoying a nice night outdoors. Nevertheless, Mukoda’s adventures feel more violent and deadly compared to the journeys Rin and her friends participate in with Laid-Back Camp.

Nevertheless, you can find many other similarities between their groups during each show’s array of peaceful scenes. If you’re craving a well-written tale with a rounded cast, check out Laid-Back Camp.

That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime

Similarities – Fantasy, Action, Adventure

Even if someone received another shot at life, there’s no telling where you’ll end up and what you’ll be. This is a scenario our protagonist Satoru ends up in That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime. This is a hilarious isekai anime with an amusing cast and epic confrontations. Both anime explore the idea of starting over in a new world and the challenges that come from the said endeavor.

Both protagonists start off weak in their universe but gradually become someone worth recognizing over time. For Mukoda, he starts earning more money and fame from having strong familiars like Fel and Sui around. While Satoru starts off his world as a mere slime, he’ll eventually becomes somewhat of a godly figure near the later half of his tale.

That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime has more luscious action scenes than Campfire Cooking, though. While it can be hilarious and charming, it’s not afraid to up the stakes to give viewers a thrilling experience. Give this a watch if you’re looking for an outstanding isekai anime with a great cast and an engaging world.

Food Wars!

Similarities – Appreciation For Food

As mentioned with Laid-Back Camp, Food Wars! is a show that’s grounded in realism and doesn’t harbor any otherworldly creatures. However, like Campfire Cooking, it holds a strong appreciation for cuisine and centers its narrative around the sport of cooking. Our story follows Yukihira Soma, an aspiring cook who seeks ownership of his father’s restaurant.

Soma attends a prolific cooking academy to become a professional chef and prove his worth. Soma must compete against elite students and others like himself if he hopes to achieve his lifelong dreams. This anime contains humorous facial expressions, witty jokes, and compelling banter that’ll have you laughing hysterically.

The ways our characters react to delicious meals are more over-the-top compared to Sui and Fel’s reactions to Mukoda’s dishes. Nevertheless, Food Wars delves deeper into the art and competitive nature of cooking than Campfire Cooking. Those who adored watching programs like MasterChef or Hell’s Kitchen will find it more appealing as a result. If you’re someone who craves an anime like the two shows I’ve mentioned and can tolerate fan service, check out Food Wars.

Spice and Wolf

Similarities – Slice of Life, Fantasy, Characters

Spice and Wolf and Campfire Cooking are two anime that share similar storytelling and are set in worlds with fantastical elements. Both anime have our protagonists navigate their world full of challenges and culture. Spice and Wolf and Campfire Cooking also celebrate mundanity over action.

For example, in Spice and Wolf, viewers get to witness the charismatic merchant, Kraft Lawrence, navigate through his journeys and interactions with the goddess Holo. The anime steers clear from action-packed sequences and instead relies on its characters to carry the story. Although Mukoda and Fel’s relationship never steers toward romance, their banter is similar to that of Holo and Lawrence’s.

Additionally, both anime share a love for exploration and discovery. The anime place a great emphasis on the importance of human connections that transcend the boundaries of the world around them. However, if you’re looking for an anime with great human and animal bonding moments with a touch of agriculture and politics, check out Spice and Wolf.

The Devil Is A Part-Timer

Similarities – Food, Isekai, Comedy

Even though working at a fast food restaurant isn’t everyone’s ideal goal, some can find a way to make the job a great one. The Devil Is A Part-Timer’s Sadao is one of the few who’d make that happen. The story occurs during a battle between Satan and an area called Ente Isla. This land’s hero defeats Satan’s army causing him to flee to the human world.

He winds up in modern Tokyo, loses his powers, and dawns the alias Sadao. He plans to work at a fast-food place called MgRonald’s and wants to climb the corporate ladder. Like Campfire Cooking, this isekai anime revolves around food and places Sadao in humorous situations with his new human friends. This series has excellent and well-animated action scenes like Campfire Cooking.

The story is full of twists and turns, unlike Campfire Cooking. This allows the anime to hold viewers’ attention and keep them engaged with the content as it’s being presented. If you’re looking for another funny isekai with a protagonist who receives great development throughout the series, check out The Devil Is A Part-Timer.

Cooking With Valkyries

Similarities – Cooking, Fantasy, Tone

Cooking With Valkyries doesn’t offer a plot of any kind. It’s a simplistic anime that follows a group of Valkyries cooking mouth-watering meals while taking in the joyous atmosphere nature grants them. Each episode is about 5 minutes each and discusses the meal being prepped by one of these characters. Many of the meals can be made in the real world, helping people stay immersed in this show.

The art quality is decent like most of the episodes in Campfire Cooking. However, like Mukoda’s meals, expect the food to look immaculate on screen. You’ll want to have a plate of food ready because you’ll wish you’d eaten something before watching this one. The characters aren’t as explored as much as Mukoda and his friends.

I’d compare them to Winrir and the others found in Campfire Cooking. You get a basic idea of who they are, what their pasts are like, and their personalities. However, don’t expect to learn anything else from them given the show’s episode lengths are short. If you’re okay with an anime that’s identical to the programs you’d find on the Food Network, check this out.

Kakuriyo -Bed & Breakfast for Spirits

Similarities – Characters, Fantasy, Food

Kakuriyo -Bed & Breakfast for Spirits is a wonderful slice-of-life isekai anime. Like Mukoda, this series’s protagonist Aoi finds herself transported to a fantasy world where she has to work for a Master Innkeeper to avoid marrying him. She’ll be preparing meals for numerous spirits at the Innkeeper’s Inn. Both anime explore the joys of food and how it can bring people together.

Kakuriyo has incredible world-building and inserts countless spirits with distinct designs, personalities, and motivations. The characters in this tale are well-rounded, with relatable struggles and goals that make them compelling to follow. Aoi stands out as a strong and independent protagonist, who refuses to be intimidated by the strange world she finds herself in. For those looking for a fun cooking isekai anime with an enjoyable lineup of characters, check this out.

Cooking Master Boy

Similarities – Characters, Cooking, Action

Cooking Master Boy is an underrated anime that combines cooking and culinary arts with a thrilling martial arts tale set in 19th-century China. In it, we follow Mao, a boy with incredible cooking skills as he travels across the country and competes against other cooks in various challenges. Both anime focus their stories on cooking and use this skill to assist in their growth.

For Mao, he uses different cooking techniques to enhance his knowledge of the craft. This will assist him in defeating highly experienced chefs to become a Super Chef. It’s nearly identical to how Mukoda prepares meals for Fel, Sui, and himself to raise their levels and stats in battle. This helps them defeat many opponents swiftly without having to put in too much effort to train.

Although the animation and art quality in Cooking Master Boy isn’t as immaculate as what you’d find in Campfire Cooking, it’s a show jam-packed with impressive culinary arts knowledge. This will hold viewers’ attention the most since it evokes a strong appreciation for the art and science of cooking. Give this late 90s anime a shot if you’re looking for a fun and competitive cooking anime.
