Dungeon Meshi Synopsis

After the Golden Kingdom is driven underground by a mad wizard, its king emerges, promising all his treasure to whoever defeats the wizard, before crumbling. The guilds are encouraged by this promise and traverse the labyrinthine dungeon in search of the wizard. Laios, the leader of one of these guilds, encounters a dragon that annihilates his group and devours his sister Falin. Despite having lost all of his supplies and belongings, Laios, along with Marcille, an elven healer, and Chilchuck, a halfling thief, immediately re-enter the dungeon, determined to save Falin.

As time is of the essence, Laios suggests the taboo of eating dungeon monsters as a means of gathering supplies. As they prepare their first meal in the dungeon, a dwarf named Senshi stops them. A monster cooking enthusiast, he helps them prepare their monster ingredients for safe consumption. After learning of Laios’ circumstances, Senshi expresses his desire to cook a dragon and joins his guild, thus beginning their foray together into the dungeon full of food.
