It’s not exactly Tampopo but this TV drama Bambino (April 2007) is entertaining enough. It’s based on a manga about a college kid Ban. He leaves his small town restaurant and goes to work in a kitchen in Tokyo. He doesn’t understand the Italian terms and he isn’t fast enough.
I didn’t think he was particularly arrogant (from my cultural perspective) but apparently he alienates all the other cooks. If you hate seeing tyros getting taken down a peg, you probably won’t like it. I cringed a lot.
This is the part one of the first episode of Bambino. It was subtitled by fans and na6ar3b0sh1 (update: user suspended) has uploaded all 8 parts. Part 7/8 has bad sound but the subtitles tell the story.
And for those who care, Matsumoto is very pretty.
