All meat dish nowaday are imbued, soaked, kneaded,..... with other ingredient one way or another more or less to have actual good taste, even more so dish served in restaurant. The sauce is simply a part of that, for example, you could served souma fried bear and have the sauce already pour on top, that's what restaurant commonly do, The dish itself is both the meat and the sauce, there is no need to separate them if you are judging the dish as a whole
This and . . .

On the flip side the best cut of meat like I said won't taste like anything special on its own, and def won't help a mediocre sauce.
This. Agreed completely.

Souma and Hayama served them separately here, but at an actual restaurant and in normal cases, they'd be served together.

Also, it's not like you can eat just sauce by itself. That's not how sauces are meant to be consumed. I mean, would you ever eat ketchup without any food to go with it? I wouldn't, at least.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

I cook it like that myself. It's awful. It's why I predominately eat fast food.

Again, they're only like a year younger than the main cast. They aren't really lolis, they just wear clothes that give that impression.

Some people do. It's really weird. Almost as weird as the people who replace tomato sauce on pizza with ranch dressing. Don't get me wrong, I like dipping pizza into ranch dressing, but completely replacing the tomato sauce? That's just weird.

Even with a really good steak I still would use salt if I'm feeling like enjoying just the beefiness. Seasoning makes the dish.

They both served dipping sauces. And why not? If you dip your fried food just before eating it, the sauce doesn't have time to ruin the crunchiness of the crust. It's also exactly where you want it to be, as opposed to just where you'd put your fingers.

I'll play the devil's advocate and share a real life experience I once had: I'd gone to a fast food joint that was famous for its sauce (and it truly was better, compared to most), but when I visited a prominent restaurant, I realized the difference between pure cuisine and just masking something average with outstanding condiments. To this day, I prefer eating at the second place, and I'll often place an order without sauce, for variety. The first place, while still booming in business, just doesn't have the same appeal.
(of course, it is unfair to compare a fast food joint to a restaurant, although the dish above is souvlaki, which is considered fast food; not to mention, it's not a deep-fried dish, as are the two in question)

That is not to say that Souma shouldn't win; after all, his bear dish is already very close to Hayama's. So, in the end, who managed to "bring out the bear" the most in their dish?

That's the thing though, this isn't about trying to mask a mediocre dish with a great sauce. It's Great + Great = Greater. So who's Greater is greater?

It doesn't matter if the meat is mediocre or if the meat is great but rather which sum is greater. If one had terrible meat but the sauce was so awesome that the other dish with great meat and great sauce isn't as good when comparing the combination, then the terrible meat one still wins.

We already learned this with the Don battle way back in the beginning. It's just that, generally speaking, no sauce is great enough to overcome meat that is actually terrible.


But as noted, both bear meats are already great with only a small margin difference.

Yeah, both dishes without their accompanying sauces are great. They're both delicious. Souma's is just overall better if you consider both the sauce and the katsu itself. Or at least, that's the implication I'm getting and I hope it's correct.

@GDB: Yep. Agreed on all accounts.

Isn't Souma finally about to win against Hayama for once, though? Since Alice's dad talks about how awesome Souma's dish is. Hopefully Souma's finally winning.

Hopefully not another I fight for Jun BS even after all that bestowing.

Too much Hayama wank, just make the guy lose and show him that his world is limited to just Jun and he can't see anything beyond for potential development instead of another pointless flashback.

Seriously Soe, be somewhat like the Batman(?) and choose the right option.

Hayama's heart is at the right place with Jun. He's just wrong about how he should save her seminar.

And yeah, hopefully Soe will let Souma win this one. He even talked this chapter about how good Souma's dish is.
