In short, this is about FL being lazy in her cooking. Mentsuyu runs in her veins!

You will be introduced to nearly all characters in first episode and although editing in first episode felt a bit incoherent, it got better after that.

I wasn't impressed by the acting when I first started.. They were exaggerating too much. Either they toned it down a bit or I got used to it, either way I think it's okay now.
I think FL is cute looking but sometimes tries too hard to act overly cute and to be frank her acting needs lots of polishing and she is inconsistent.
I think the rest of the cast are okay in acting.

Overall I like almost all characters.
The fl coworker crush is both funny and sweet the extend she tries to get his attention.

I like food dramas so I'm biased in my rating to good food representation. here are my foodie highlights:
Ep 01: they did justice to the sandwich!
Ep03: how can this drama make me crave butter bread toast!
Ep06: Togoshi-san's bento looked so good!
Ep12: Togoshi-san's bento again looks so good!! Also Mendo-san's eggplant kabayaki don looked simple but yummy too!


It wasn't the best food drama but it was fun to watch. If you also like food dramas, give it a try.
