Sonoka Kikuchi (木久知 園果(きくち そのか), Kikuchi Sonoka?) is an 89th Generation Tōtsuki Academy Alumnus and a previous 2nd seat of the Elite Ten Council. She is the owner and head chef of the Western-style restaurant, Shunkatei.


Sonoka is a serene appearing woman similar to Hinako Inui and has a large bust. She has long pink hair that is tied at the end and reaches just below her shoulder blades. The right side of her bangs are tied together by another bow.

Her outfit during the Autumn Election Semifinals consisted of a white dress shirt and a dark colored vested skirt.


Sonoka is extremely similar to Megumi Tadokoro and Jun Shiomi where she has an extremely polite and reserved personality.


Sonoka previously attended Tōtsuki as a part of the 89th generation and was among the few to graduate. During her time at Tōtsuki, Sonoka held the 2nd seat of the Elite Ten Council. After graduating, Sonoka wasted no time and quickly established her own restaurant Shunkatei.

Sonoka was invited to be one of the five judges at the Autumn Election's Main Tournament Semifinals, being reunited with her fellow alumni. Like Taki, Sonoka viewed the Shokugeki from above and was initially skeptical about Sōma, whom she found to be in a disadvantage in creating a Western dish like beef stew.

When Subaru came and served his beef stew to the judges, Sonoka was first to taste the dish and found it delicious.

Cooking StyleEdit

While Sonoka has not cooked in the series, according to her profile, she is a Western-cuisine expert and runs her own restaurant, Shunkatei.


  • Sonoka (園果) is written with the kanji for "garden" (園 Sono) and "fruit" (果 Ka). Kikuchi (木久知) uses the kanji for "tree" (木 Ki), "old story" (Ku 久), and "wisdom" (Chi 知).
