Shinya Shokudo (Night Restaurant) is the Japanese manga series by a male artist Abe Yaro, first published in 2006 and gained great popularity for its nice presentations of Japanese food and real life stories about common people working around Shinjuku, Tokyo, the well-known red light district.
From 2009, it has been adapted into live-action TV drama with 3 seasons, and a real movie in early 2015.
In 2010, it won the 55th Shogakukan Manga Award for general manga. At the same year,it was awarded for the 39th Manga Taishō. Being a manga artist who started his career in 40’s, I believed that it really meant a lot.

Honestly, I watched the TV drama of Shinya Shokudo first, then searched the manga book to kill the time when no new episode came out. Actually, it collected more interesting stories of various customers in this small night restaurant which was managed by a 50-year-old-like Japanese man with a scar on his left eye. He could serve nice food in the customer’s need, as well as life wisdom to people lost in this big city. Well, as we know, Shinjuku District has the reputation of the risky crazy night life, so you can imagine what characters would appear in the manga series: the usual group( includes office workers, freelance photographers, writers, manga artists), young people who struggle for life or dreams; the “unusual” group refers to the dangerous mafia guys, the fancy gays who dress as women, the sexy strip dancers, the “adorable” AV actors, night-club prostitutes, gigolos and lady-boys……Ah! Quite fancinating, isn’t it?

    1. 尤其不能晚上看,越看越饿,然后也跟着吃起来了。。。 :))

    1. 这剧的好处之一是可以学做菜,你也可以来几手。。。 😀

      1. 俺不太会做菜呀,估计没有什么天赋学做菜,不过要是哪天可以吃到女王大人亲自做的菜,那真的算是一种幸福了

    1. 还挺好玩的,只是所有人物脸都差不多 ;;) 反正也是许多漫画的通病了

  1. 看题目,我还以为你又去哪里寻美食了呢,还纳闷怎么非得深夜去吃啊,原来不是这个样子的~后面那几幅美食图片还不错,真是越看越饿 =))

    1. 这几年来很少出去吃了呢 ;;) 除非特别的日子,才会外出点些特色菜 😀

        1. 有时某头目做,有时我做,没什么特别的。。 ;;)
          哦,其实发过N多蔬菜打的美颜汤和DIY菠菜面。。 😀

  2. 深夜食堂,想到了每天深夜入睡前躺在床上看美拍上面的美食广场。 :))

    1. 《孤独的美食家》也可以看看,各处的美食与风景 🙂 不过没什么剧情。。

  3. 《深夜食堂》这部日剧我通常都是在深夜看,感觉情景跟剧情很配,喜欢剧里暖暖的治愈风。听说还要出电影版了。

  4. 最近几部食物有关的番都是可以吃出羞耻play的那种/w
    不过鹚酱更希望这部能动画化www =))

    1. 我觉得真人版挺好的,动画也许少了几丝韵味呢。。。 🙂

    1. 到处去吃也不见得吃到美味,毕竟个人口味大都是孩童时期习得的 ;;)

  5. 现在这个年龄,我就已经对寻找美食的真谛,产生了很大的兴趣。也许,我本应该是成为一个国家特级大厨的男人吧。
    :O) 岚姐许久不见,甚是想念。

    1. 日漫题材比较广泛,既有幼龄、少年、中青年读物,也有成人读物 B-)

  6. 好早以前就听说了深夜食堂四个字,但就是不知道是什么,今天总算明白了,科普的很到味。
