iirc, the castle behind the booth of Tsubasa is where Sensaemon lives, right?

I think he's going to move everywhere to create an impression of scarcity. Make it so people seeing his cart will think "I have to buy now, because I may not be able to buy it later".

the problem is i dont think he can do that. I'm pretty sure you have to stick to one spot and u cant move around that defeats the purpose of the stalls.

He should have moved somewhere he can intercept clients before they see the chinese booth .So closer to entrance? Well that whole zone near sempai is almost void because no one wants to be near chinese club booth.

Well, the plot device that's familiar in situations like this is the "luck" of stumbling across a famous food critic or whoever, whom manages to convey the greatness of Souma's dish to pull a crowd.

But for some reason, I'm a bit skeptical that this will be the approach, because even if Souma manages to scrap through that way, it feels kinda cheap and doesn't highlight any actual ingenuity on Souma's part to overcome the challenge of "convincing customers to try his food."

This is what I think too, unless Soma is pulling plug from the 5 days festival.

a mobile stall !.... hmm, I see this potential but it would be very tiring to approach the customer directly

at least their food is not bad
To be honest, at a normal festival, people would choose small snack.. If they tried spicy food first, they will lose all appetite to eat other food anymore

That is why Soma is unable to make a profit boggling my mind. Maybe Soma will have Megumi to sell those buns with drink directly to the customers that in queue in the next chapter or just move his stall around the festival and at the same time to build the demand of his buns.

he doesn't necessarily move, he can just closed for 1 day or even just a morning and then reopen in the afternoon, there is no rule about which time you have to open or closed after all, if Souma stalls closed soon, people might think that" that stall have sold out!!" ->"it must be good" the he is success.

I just hope he didn't make too many buns, because the ones he throws away are technically a total loss .

Other than that I too think he is trying to convince people that his stock is rather limited.
Moreover, the people won't go to Kuga's stand every day. - They are bound to move around and then they will remember Souma's stand since it was directly in front of Kuga's.

I just wonder how much Souma's stand costs him per day.
The map at least suggest that they have to pay for their stand spot or at least make a minimum amount per day.

Wow, Ikumi really revitalized the Don RS. I see at least 8 new members there besides herself and the captain.

My guess is that Souma will stay closed for periods of time to make the people around him see his meals as a limited time thing and make them feel it is urgent to buy as soon as possible.

I wonder would it consider as cheating if Soma ask Megumi to run another food cart at other place? Basically there are 2 mobile food carts under Soma banner running the whole area in the festival.

Well you have to register for specific spots so unless they registered for or more spots tehy will probably have to stick with theirs.

However, registrating for 2 spots would actually not be beneficial since you'd have to earn the minimum daily amount/pay the fees for 2 spots instead of just 1.

Ah, now I get it. It's a little black pepper meat pie that usually sells in Taiwan. No wonder I knew nothing about it, unless I go to Taiwanese restaurants.

It's interesting that "Yugi-wannabe" Kuga is specifically specialize in Sichuan cuisine. Another specialty he served is "口水鸡" mouth-watering chicken (don't confuse with saliva). I haven't try it before, but it may taste great when there are sesame seeds on it (sesame oil may be better). I might try one soon at the Sichuan restaurant.

Another great stuff in Sichuan is "水煮", water-cooked dish. Also has the numb-spicy "麻辣" taste, but it's usually cook as a soup. It looks like this:

The spot is reserved for him, there was no rule forbidding him from taking a mobile cart on the street as long as he doesn't set up in some other dude's spot.
