This is a Chinese anime that takes place in 19th century China during the Qing Dynasty, during a fictitious era called "The Era of the Cooking Wars". A young boy competes with all the best chefs to become the best chef in China. Sound familiar? It should if you have watched Food Wars. The show debuted in 1997 and has a total of 52 episodes.

Gourmet Girl Graffiti is a simple Japanese slice of life anime that follows a middle schooler trying to learn how to cook. Her food always comes out horrible, but then her cousin moves in which leads to vast improvement. It's a simple show great for the whole family to watch.

Bartender features a lone bar operated by a prodigy bartender who is said to mix the most incredible cocktails anyone has ever tasted. Admittedly a little slow to start, this anime puts an interesting twist on bartending and cocktails. Bartender debuted back in 2006 and has a total of 11 episodes. Being the shortest anime on this list, you can't go wrong giving it a try. 

1. Dagashi Kashi

Dagashi is the Japanese word for candy, therefore Dagashi Kashi is the ultimate anime for Japanese candy and snack aficionados. Its a slice of life anime featuring a kid who is forced to run his family Dagashi, or candy shop. Many snacks featured in our TokyoTreat boxes appear in this show. This is the newest anime on the list having debuted in 2016 with a total of 24 episodes currently. Dagashi Kashi was a huge hit in Japan when the anime originally aired, and is personally my favorite anime on this list. Feel free to brag to your friends about your Japanese candy knowledge after watching this show.
