* {{Food Porn}}: A literal example as well as a figurative one. Let's just say this movie will make you hungry.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Culture Clash}}: The high-end European restaurant is offering Western etiquette lessons to Japanese women, where care is taken to demonstrate the "proper" way to eat spaghetti, which is portrayed as a dainty, slow process. The demonstrator is quickly interrupted by a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm_ubnnZusc Western man slurping at his own spaghetti-]], which is ironically the correct etiquette for eating Japanese noodle dishes like ramen.

Added DiffLines:

** This is also somewhat of a commentary at traditional Japanese business etiquette. The exec the henpecked junior guy works for is so preoccupied with not losing face in front of his superiors that he and the others all just order the same thing that the CEO has.

Added DiffLines:

* OvercomplicatedMenuOrder: There's a scene where a bunch of businessmen visit a French restaurant. Each person defers up the ladder of seniority until the CEO of the company orders (something bland and safe for people new to French cuisine, as I recall.) Each person down the chain of command promptly orders the same thing--except the most junior executive. He turns out to be an expert on French food, and makes a complex order that thrills the waiter, but embarrasses the heck out of everyone else.

A sketch comedy revolving around food, it's main narrative involves a pair of truck drivers, one dressed like a cowboy, who take it upon themselves to revitalize the eponymous character's failing ramen shop. Another bit involves a white-suited Yakuza and his mistress engaging in food play. Beyond that, there's a man who teaches the proper method of eating ramen, managers getting upstaged by a subordinate at a French restaurant, spaghetti slurping, homeless foodies, trips to the dentist, an old woman who wrecks a grocer's produce, a pickpocket who loves peking duck, and a dying housewife who prepares one last meal for her family.

* FourLinesAllWaiting: Besides the main plotline (and the one about the yakuza and his mistress), there are a few other miniature plots that revolve around food, such as the RamenSlurp sketch.
