Delicious in Dungeon - Court Cuisine/Boiled in Salt Water

"Court Cuisine/Boiled in Salt Water" continues the show's theme of finding food in usual places. The first-half of the episode deals with Laios (Damien C. Haas) and his failed attempts to find sustenance within Living Paintings where he struggles to find a meal, and even when finally doing so, returns only to discover the food has no substance in his world. Jumping through several paintings all within the same part of the dungeon, Laios begins to visit the same people at different times in their lives and draws the attention of an elf who begins to suspect Laois may be responsible for the kingdom's troubles. I'll be curious to see if the show picks up this thread later on in the series.

The second-half of the episode deals primarily with Chilchuck (Asuna Tomari) and his hatred and fear of Mimics which puts him in an unfortunate situation of being trapped with one. Although the food from the Living Paintings ultimately fails to satisfy, Senshi (SungWon Cho) is able to cook up the lobster-like mimic that Chilchuck kills and the flavor is one even the thief is forced to admit is yet another delicacy found in dungeon.
