Warning: The following post contains spoilers from Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) chapter 280. Read at your own risk.

The last day of the exam is here. Everyone is trying their hardest to meet the requirements. Dakekanba Ken, the guy that keeps challenging Souma and wants to see the Elite Ten fail, has been pretty successful with his business. He created a fancy lobster dish that is sold at high prices to make sure he will reach the goal.

Dakekanba’s dish.

He is proud of his accomplishment on the outside, but on the inside he is scared his father will find out he pulled this off using his name. But for now, this will help him pass. The only shop he has to compete with is the Polar Star shop, who is doing great with the smoked food they’re serving.

Obviously he thinks he doesn’t have to worry about the Elite Ten’s shop. But just as he thinks that, he looks in front of his shop and sees that all the customers are gone. From the entire beach.

Well, that’s not quite so. He feels an amazing smell and when he turns to look where it comes from, he sees it’s from the Elite’s shop! The customers didn’t disappear, they all went to their shop. Megumi and Alice are there to serve and attract the customers. They offer a deluxe yakisoba for only 800¥, and if you get it to go it will be served in less than 50 seconds! Not only that, but the yakisoba itself is delicious and irresistible!

The Elite’s yakisoba.

The recipe was made using all of the Elite’s strengths combines together! Each of them added their own touch, but the thing that bring everyone to the shop is the aroma of Hayama’s red oil! The oil is directly injected with a syringe into the egg yolk, which causes an explosion of aroma in the entire yakisoba.

Hayama walks up to Dakekanda and apologises for stealing his customers. He gets mad and says that even if they steal the customers they still need to make 27,000$, which would be impossible for any human. Hayama just points and the three chefs in the kitchen, who are more fired up than ever. There is nothing that they can’t prepare.

Hayama offers Dakenkanba a yakisoba on the house, so he can convince himself. He just can’t resist this dish, and admits the true value of it.

The day ends and the Elite shop made 6,532,700¥! 27,000$ is roughly 3,000,000¥, which means the shop did more than the double required for passing! Nothing can beat the Elites.

But with this done, hopefully someone will notice that Erina has gone missing and they will go look for her. That guy needs to be stopped. But we shall see what happens in the next chapters!
