Having come up with ideas to make a dish, Soma makes a list of ingredients for he and Megumi to gather. Soma takes Inui's kaki peanuts understanding that any ingredient found in the area can be used. Soma and Megumi gather ingredients and arrive with 15 minutes left and they make the Char Okakiage using the peanuts as a crust for the fish. Inui expresses her satisfaction and passes Soma and Megumi, but she does not declare a winner as she is ordered to depart immediately. Takumi leaves vowing to challenge Soma to a Shokugeki should they meet again. The students return to the hotel where they are ordered to cook 50 servings of a steak dish to serve to the Bodybuilding Club. Soma finishes quickly and heads to the public bath where he runs into Erina who was just leaving the bath.
