A 20yearold chef who works in the kitchen Satou is a helpful but intimidating individual. He is in love with Yachiyo but has problems expressing it. Of course because she is so devoted to Kyouko she fails to recognize any hints he attempts to make. He likes to take out his anger on Popura by messing with her or bending the truth to which Popura naively believes. When Souma tries to help with Satous development with Yachiyo Satou unrelentingly hits him with a pan showing that he is sensitive about his feelings for Yachiyo.
