Shinya Shokudo 2 (MBS, TBS - Fall 2011) is the continuation of the 2009 drama series. Based on the manga by Abe Yaro, this drama returns to tell more stories - mainly those of the people who frequent "Meshi-ya," a humble night-time eatery found in one of the narrow alleyways of Shinjuku, Tokyo. This diner is run by an enigmatic cook whom everyone calls 'Master' (Kobayashi Kaoru). His menu consists only of tonjiru (pork stew) and some liquor. If there's anything else a customer wants, Master will prepare it only if he has the ingredients available. There are plenty of eateries in Shinjuku, and Master's diner isn't much... it's as small, nondescript, and unassuming as his menu. So what's in this midnight diner that makes his customers want to come back to it... again and again?

Last Story (Story 20 or Ep10 of S2): "Gyoza (Pot-stickers)"

Episode Synopsis: "If I can, I'll make you anything you'd like to eat." Such is the business philosophy of Master. However, when it comes to 'gyoza,' he'd rather order from gyoza maker, Murata (Lily Franky). Murata's dumplings are known to be delicious and quite popular. One night, instead of Murata, a woman delivers the gyoza to Master's diner. Master remembers her from before. She's Momoko (Kurotani Tomoka), the former girlfriend of Meshi-ya's most eccentric customer, Katagiri (Odagiri Joe)...
