Renji Togashi (富樫 蓮二, Togashi Renji) is one of the male characters in the series.
Renji is the 42 year-old head chef of Kissuisō. He watches over the work of Minko and Tōru, while he takes care of most of the important cooking. Even though he looks more like the type of person who was once part of or was a high member of a gang, represented by the small scar on his left brow and his very manly appearance, he is actually very weak under pressure and other related events. This has been seen throughout the series, especially when he was under the pressure of cooking for more people than the usual.
