A good drama for the fans of the Let's Eat series. It was centred around food, but the story was overall nice too. Some of the scenes were idiotic, however, and too much over the top. The romance was good too, especially the love triangle. The side romance was cute and full of passion as well. The other side stories, however, weren't that good and they got tiring after a while. Finally, the guest appearance of BTOB was a nice surprise. In addition, although, the leading lady was kind of annoying overall, the performances were good.

Yummy drama!
I love everything in this amazing drama and I must write a review, because you can’t miss watching it! It is funny, amusing, positive and sweet.

This is drama about cooking with detailed recipes for good food, and I stopped the episode to write them down. But also we have lovable characters here: three siblings Han with “superpowers of cooking”, the girl (Bok Seung A) with another “superpower” and coworkers in the company, and Min Hyuk (who plays Min Hyuk). Interactions between characters are funny and enjoyable, everyone loves eating and everyone is slightly unconventional. There is a lot of romance, but I think none of them is stright stereotypical.

One of the best part of the drama are “stolen scenes”. Their ridiculous chief (played by Jung Yi Rang) in every episode plays the role of famous heroine whom we know from the world cinematography. She has a full costume and characterization and that idea is amazing! I laugh my head off!
She plays Kim Tae Ri from Mr Sunshine when she talk about “love” (I’m dying…)
Also she plays Sharone Stone from “Basic Instinct”, with long legs, when she is smoking a cigarette (I can’t stop myself from laughing)
Also she plays Audrey Hepburn from “Roman Holiday” and Marilyn Monroe (do you imagine this?)
In 8 episode she plays the nation's first love whose name begins with "S"... ha, ha! Of course, she must be also one of anime heroine (she is Usagi!)

I don't know why I enjoy this drama so much. Everything in it is absolutely optimistic! This is a relaxing, light and pleasant entertainment. If you do not expect anything serious or deep or elaborate – you will enjoy it more.
