“B-grade gourmet” is a Japanese term for ordinary yet tasty foods, such as ramen noodles, and curry with rice.

A food competition in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture, over the weekend drew around 515,000 people keen to enjoy cheap and satisfying dishes vying for the honor of being judged the country’s top “B-grade gourmet” fare.

The number of visitors reached a record 515,000 in two days as 63 groups from 29 of Japan’s 47 prefectures took part in the sixth competition to promote their local specialties in the western Japanese city.

Visitors’ votes at the “B-1 Grand Prix” awarded the gold prize Sunday to a group from Maniwa, Okayama Prefecture, which featured “Hiruzen yakisoba” pan-fried noodles containing cabbage and chicken, seasoned with miso sauce.
