Sauces and side-dishes arrives as well amid fierce battle cries of motivated staff. The old owner was inciting them with grunts.

"Invincible Tonkatsu! Ultimate Cut Tonkatsu! Supreme Tonkatsu! We prevail!"

Apparently the meal wasn't done, as the second part arrived Yasuhiro raised an eyebrow. This was apparently the better cut. "In favor of impartiality, I say we should taste at the same time. I wouldn't want it to be said I was over critical of the cooking after all."

There was something with the enthusiastic battle cries of the staff that was positively delightful, and the Agasha couldn't help but to smile sincerely at their earnest efforts to go so out of their way.

"That sounds fair enough, Matsu-san," she nodded and picked up the chopsticks. "Itadakimasu!" Utsusemi said in an equally enthusiastic tone, giving a friendly smile to the staff as she took the first bite at the same time as Yasuhiro.

While pork was an unusual taste, it wasn't too far a leap from some of the other things eaten in Dragon lands... and then still not so strong in its flavour as goat. But fried food was quite the treat! "Delicious!"

Yasuhiro would of preferred a more quiet approach, he never felt shouting made a meal more enjoyable... Perhaps if he had been born a crab, his thoughts would be different.

Still he decided to give the meal a try. It was unusual to say the least, not at all something he has used to, the frying was well done though. There was no immediate reaction from him as he tasted each piece in turn. Pork cabbage and the sides.

The cabbage as well was a treat, but not as much as freshly fried food, especially given that it had been a long while since she had such a proper meal. A part of her idly thought of bringing Sanjuro here to try, once he had recovered.

From her nods of approval and healthy appetite, it seems the white-haired lady was most satisified with the food.

There were problems in the meal,the cabbage seemed to be a bit over ripe for example, and the oil used was perhaps a touch to dirty. It only took a single glance in the direction of the woman across the table for him to come to a decision. For while this was a battle he could win, it was likely one he should win.

"It is passable." He offered at last. "Though I still think you may want to change name. Other of my family might not like it, could cause trouble."

Despondence painted itself immediately on the woman's face. She had tried so hard to make it a respectable restaurant in this neighbourhood, and she was so proud of the original name. She had fought relentlessly with defamation campaigns of the competition and protected the symbol of the restaurant at the expense of her family for it was either the sleeping place of her daughter or the storage of the carved mascot of the eatery. The very symbol of ferocity that had inspired her to persevere, what on many times had preserved her from giving up, was now being torn from her. She and her staff had done their best. And their best was not enough.

"To what, Senor." She mumbled through tears.

"You not understand. Reason I say this, is not because food is bad." He offered after a moment his voice soft. "You say pork makes, you strong as strongest warrior, makes you strong as man in bedroom."

"Well, strongest of Matsu warriors are not men, strongest of Matsu warriors are women. So strongest of Matsu warriors might not like this." Yasuhiro admitted calmly. "In my head, your food good enough you keep name. Other of my clan might not agree, cause much trouble in future. If you willing to battle with each one, well you keep name. Will earn you respect eventually. If not, change name, perhaps to Lion Tonkatsu? My clan full of strong warriors."

"Oh." The woman contemplated it, the hope returning. "But it must rhyme, strong Senor. And I don't mind proving the quality of tonkatsu to each and every of your ferocious cousins!" Her lips thinned in deep thought, looking outside on the wooden figure. "So... there should be a woman, not a man?"

"If you want strongest Matsu Warrior." The young Lion with a nod, and a small smile. "Matsu women are strong, fierce, beautiful, will never submit to men. Men marry into Matsu family, take Matsu name. Matsu women, not marry into man's family. Is great shame, as must cease being Matsu." He offered something of a explanation.

"You shop have Matsu name, must remember this. Aim to make strongest Tonkatsu ever."
Yasuhiro suggested.

"Absolutamente, Senor!"

The proprietoress made a pumping move with her arm.

"We will order a new figure from Genta, that's what we'll do! Of the fiercest warrior woman!"

It wasn't exactly the outcome he had wanted, but the woman had at the very least proved her dedication to her shop, and her food. The frustration on her face when she thought she failed was proof enough of that.

That taken care of, he returned to his meal, letting the owner commence with whatever preparations she needed to.

Utsusemi was more than happy to watch the exchange with some good humour... perhaps more because she was seeing a different side to the Lion, and the way he handled the matter earned him a few brownie points with the Imperial Chaperone.

"You're quite the diplomat, Matsu-san. I shall have to remember that," she said with a clever smile, glancing at the workers who now seemed even more focused on keeping up the good work.

"You are likely overestimating me a little Agasha-sama. I'm uniquely unsuited to most affairs as a diplomat. It just so happened that in this case the owner was willing to listen to what I had to say." The young Lion offered evenly.

"Which was more a warning then anything."

"Perhaps, but you handled it in a fashion that aligns with the orders of the Imperial Admiral, and you gave them a new incentive to work towards," she gave an approving nod. "You will probably be treated quite extravagantly here as a guest when you return."

That was an amusing thought, and it brought a whisper of a smile to the Lion's lips. "I am a Imperial Explorer, I do my utmost to follow the orders of The Admiral, while maintaining the integrity of our culture."

"As to any extravagance. Well, I won't tell them no, but it really us unnesscary."

"I never expected anything less from you, Matsu-san, but yet I am impressed with your skill. It's good to know I am here on the island along with someone like yourself," she chuckled warmly and continued eating.

"I can see why Akodo-sama was impressed with you."

"Do you?" He asked raising an eyebrow. She would be only the second woman to do so. Not even the Imperial matchmaker could see his good points.

Utsusemi nodded, so as to occupy time slightly as she finished chewing her food.

"Hai. You are clever, and seem to have a sense of caution in your approach. Some samurai might have reacted... more rashly, to all of this, but you acted with calmness as you assessed the situation. Once you discerned it was not something ill-intentioned or malicious, you offered your guidance in how they could avoid such potential trouble in the future as well as giving proper honor to your Family."

She had to admit that a lot about the man did not appeal to her personally, most of it physical, but she saw quite many merits to him that more than did up for any physical faults he had.

Yasu paused polietly to let her give her assessment. He normally didn't listen to what others thought of him, and was a little curious. "Caution is quite important as a scout, if you are too daring it's easy to run afoul of the enemy, and that would only be a detriment to the rest of your unit."

"Still, it's interesting to hear a your opinion. Thank you for your that Agasha-sama."
