|Price||The rarity of the original version would make a bowl cost several billion to several hundreds of billions of yen. The modern version would still have a very high price due to the amount of high-quality ingredients and the effort needed to create it, though not as high a price as the original.|

Century Soup (センチュリースープ Senchurīsūpu) is a rare and high-class ingredient, considered one of the greatest soups in the world. The soup only forms in the center of the inhospitable continent Ice Hell once every 100 years, and only under special circumstances. The original source of Century Soup was Ice Hell's legendary Gourmet Show Window; after it crumbled, the only "true" Century Soup that exists is a modern day recreation made by Chef Komatsu of Hotel Gourmet.
A soup cooked with hundreds or even thousands of ingredients. The "original" Century Soup was produced naturally when the Gourmet Show Window's ice is melted. The taste of the soup can also be reproduced with different ingredients boiled down so that the harsh taste is removed and only an extremely transparent liquid remains. The soup is so transparent that many have difficulty even seeing it. Even so, a "true" Century Soup produces a characteristic aurora.
Century Soup is extremely delicious and deeply flavorful, despite its insubstantial appearance. It is described as being an ancient flavor filled with innumerable savory tastes that gradually unravel on the tongue and awakening primitive taste senses that have been sleeping until now. Virtually anyone who eats it displays a characteristic dopey grin of extreme happiness and drools excessively. The happiness it induces even affect animals, as Yun, who, saddened about its parents' death, quickly cheers up when it sees the aurora.
Century Soup Arc
After the events of Ice Hell and the Gourmet Show Window's demise, Komatsu manages to recreate the Century Soup perfectly after six months of experimentation. However, he does not file a patent for the soup because he would be required to release the recipe; he fears this would lead to the overhunting of Wall Penguins, whose saliva is a key ingredient. Toriko chooses it as the Soup Dish in his Full Course Menu. As the only chef able to make Century Soup, Komatsu single-handedly raises his restaurant's star rating from five to six, and gains a great deal of international fame and prestige.
- The only person the Century Soup could not make smile was Midora, suggesting that his willpower and appetite are beyond even the soup's ability to overcome.
