Delicious In The Dungeon Plot
The manga, which Yen Press licensed, tells the following story:
“What do you get when you combine food manga with dungeon adventures? You find Delicious in the Dungeon, where our group of explorers must find a way to survive on the food the dungeon offers them while trying to save a lost team member. Deep within a dungeon, the group loses all of its supplies and money when young adventurer Laios and his companions are ambush and severely punished by a dragon. They want to get back to it immediately, but there’s only one issue: if they leave without any food or money, they’ll definitely devour it on the way! However, Laios has a very clever idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!” Not even dragons, mimics, basilisks, or slimes are immune from these dungeon-crawling foodies’ voracious appetites!”
