Mutton Meat Shimotsu-to Curry is a dish made by Hisako Arato during the 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn Election's Preliminary Round.

DescriptionEdit

Hisako blended her family's Chinese medicine technique: The Four Substance Decoction into a spice blend, creating a dish that can turn the weakest of men into people who can star in kung fu movies. It immediately followed Nao Sadatsuka's Jet Black Curry Laksa and completely overpowered her dish's evil flavor. Her efforts allowed her to earn a higher score than Nao and temporarily held the highest score of the "B" Block. It was only beaten by Alice's Thermal Sense Curry.
