Description
Fujiwara Momoe, a girl who loves to eat, was raised by her rich parents eating only the best.

When her father dies from heart disease and Momoe has to support her and her mother, she can't stand the food that she makes (she never cooked before).

One day, she walks into a little French restaurant and recognizes the food from its taste. She had eaten it several years earlier when celebrating her birthday at a 5-star restaurant with her parents. She asks to work there as a cook under the head chef, Oda-san. She falls in love with Oda, but he doesn't notice her feelings and only considers her an annoying apprentice. This series goes through joy and heartbreak, as experienced by Momoe. How does the situation end?

Note: Was also made into an 11-part Jdrama, and a 20-part Taiwanese drama

So good!

It's been a while since I'd read a manga this good, it's been a while since I'd read a whole series and stayed up till the early hour engrossed in what would happen totally unable to stop reading! This series really appealed to me, the girl is around my age and she so admirable because she is strong and passionate. I never found her to be annoying she seemed like some one you'd meet in real life and I'd love to be friends with her. The pace of the manga can be slow and it probably stretched a few too many volumes but the manga-ka was able to give all the characters growth they needed and you sensed that everything was taking place over a long period of time. The romance is really good but it is not the main feature of the manga because the manga is really about people, their problems and the gifts they possess. Like all the previous reviewers the ending is a little rushed (and some aspects a little unbelievable) but not only is the ending rushed it ends very abruptly with no closure and no future scene. The fabulous WingtipCafe staff though provided us with their vision of the future (and do read it I agree with everything they wanted.) I really enjoyed this manga simply because there are so few like it, these days romance manga's have become so boring and samey, manga about gifted people are also boring and samey but this manga is all about people and it doesn't shy away from the serious issues in society, it creates really interesting characters that engage the reader to feel and care about them.

A Good Read.

It was a really enjoyable read, though I agree with the other comments mentioning the somewhat rushed ending. The plot was great and all together the characters were likeable and entertaining. If you're looking for a manga that fits the genres then this is a must read.

The only problem I had was the lack of main character romance. I wish that the relationship between Oda and Momoe had developed quicker. Though I loved Momoe's constant and unwavering love.

It was a free flowing read. It did get rather rushed towards the end but I enjoyed the description of dishes and the authors honest desire to sweep the reader into a world of good food.

The story is pretty good. It's 10 volumes (bunko) so you won't get bored--- and it really never got to a point where I'd say it's boring. The ending did feel a bit rushed, I wasn't that satisfied with how things ended... but overall, it's a pretty good read.

It's definitely worth a read, it's funny and different plot. Main characters are likeable though I found the ending a bit rushed? There's not much passion between Oda and Momoe... Even though it's a long series, I never once got so bored that I skipped ahead or thinking about giving up.

I posted before that this series starts to drag after a while (the whole thing with Momoe and Miki being depressed) but that passed and the series is good again. It's picked up the pace and things are moving forward. So if you get to that point where you feel like you want to put it down, don't! Because it will get better.

EDIT: I've just finished reading it and I felt like the ending was a bit rushed... I like happy endings and I wanted a few more pages of it.

Momoe may seem ditsy and weak, but she has a resiliency and strength of character that doesn't seem apparent at first. She matches so closely to the kind of person I want to be--kind, happy, bright... She has skills that slowly grow, and she makes decisions that don't seem exactly that smart at first. I guess what I'm trying to say that she seems so human, so real, that it is almost incredible. The most recent chapter (Ch. 25) just blew me away with how insightful and beautiful it was. Her thoughts and feelings felt like they were mine (and I was her)... They were the kind of things that I've thought, from time to time. The last two pages were amazing.

As a manga about an aspiring cook, Momoe's growth as a cook is seldom focused on, just casually revealed in certain parts, especially in recent chapters. To be honest I don't really mind that Momoe's career as a cook isn't the point, because the story is so rich with other things--the insights and thoughts of all the characters as they go through their lives, for example... And there is enough of Momoe's growth, both emotionally and as a cook, to satisfy you.
As for the slow romance between Oda and Momoe... I've always had a lot of issues with stories where in the first chapter, right off the bat, the couple discovers that they're in love and become super-lovey-dovey. Sometimes it almost disgusts me, because real life, in no way, is like that. I'm in college and I've never had a boyfriend or actually dated someone... though I am probably the exception (unfortunately sad ). So I've always preferred the slow but fulfilling development of a relationship over one that happens quickly. And I feel like even though romantic development happens very slowly in some parts, there's always something that happens that you can see building up towards their eventual relationship.

Also I am so, so happy that Wingtip Cafe has been scanlated Oishii Kankei like crazy recently. biggrinD

Different, Realistic. It's like REAL LIFE.

Well, this manga certainly is very different. For a few years, I have been primarily reading shoujo manga. I am in my teens; however, shoujo mangas do get very tiring.
In Oishii Kankei, there are comic reliefs, mouth-watering descriptions of fabulous French dishes, real-life drama, a girl's perseverance in her chosen career path, and a very convincing romance.

Don't let the 'horrible' art get you down from reading this, though! I believe this was a very popular style during the 90s and yes, the art does resemble that of itazura na kiss and hana yori dango. You'll get used to it, and yes; the art DOES improve!

To be frank, I don't really like the guy in this story. Sometimes arrogant and brooding guys aren't just worth it, and they waste quite a lot of your time and...er...emotions and tears. Haha!

Well, give OISHII KANKEI a try! I find it very interesting and a joy to read smile

good but not satisfying

Okay, I know that a lot of people are looking forward to this manga but I have to warn you that it is not what it seems. Firstly, it is not one of those I can consider shoujo, more like josei (which it is rightly classified)-- which kind of disappointed me really. I finished reading all the mangas and... over all, it deals with the development of momoe as a chef. The romance between her and Oda did not start until vol 9. The story stretches very very very long until you just can't wait but to think... when will Oda start looking her way?!! And when they did start having that understanding, its not that romantic at all. I even start to wonder if the mangaka is male... sigh. Well, long manga. If you're into josei, it can satisfy you. Its just that... i'm a shoujo fan, is all. And I hunted the raws since it reminded me of Itazura na Kiss...

Okay the art is downright horrible and makes me want run away screaming (although it seems to be very slowly improving). And the jokes are typical of the 1990ís so donít think you will be swept away with laughter. But it does have charm, Iíll give it that. The characters arenít stereotypical and their past and families are interesting and may surprise you.
The romance is slow moving but this manga isnít really about that, itís more about self growth and working hard to accomplish your dreams. It kind of gives you that satisfactory feeling afterwards if you know what I mean.
There are no cliff hangers and each chapter is almost self contained story on its own in the beginning (later on it becomes more of an ongoing story).
Give it a chance, try reading past chapter 3 and if you still donít like it then I guess this just isnít the manga for you.

Edit: Okay I just want to add that the art progressively gets better in later volumes and the story becomes more interesting.
Also in response to the above review, don't you get bored of every single shoujo focusing just on romance? I'm glad this one is different and the girl doesnít blow her career for the guy she likes. The fact that itís not just solemnly focused on romance shows it is Josei but I guess itís more for people who have read manga for quite a while and so are bored of the whole only romance genre.
