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

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.

warm characters

this is one of the few manga that make me rooting for a happy-go-lucky female main character. this is because her character is fleshed out very well, and even when she's spoiled and she's childish, i do not get disgusted with her, but root for her because the mangaka able to make me understand her inner psychology very well.

this is also true for other characters - even when i hated them at first, when they are mean and disagreeable, the mangaka able to shape them to be a better person at the end of the manga and im so glad to meet such warm and lively characters.

the plot itself can be quite unrealistic, but i like it that everything is so high-class and out of reach, somehow i can pretend i am myself a refined lady and immersed myself in this high society world. it is truly great for the mangaka to bring out the world of the elites without the reader being disgusted - she made them so beautiful and full of warmth.

im glad i read this even though im not a fan of josei. i think others that ar not accustomed with josei should pick up this manga to immersed yourself in world with a great characterization.

I'll keep this short. Whoever wrote the plot and dialogues for this manga is intelligent and wonderful.

The main girl is nothing like the other characters I've seen. She has this hidden maturity and funny perspectives about life that only comes with age. I love how amusing she can be. Hilarious!

Korean drama based this: "My Name is Kim Sam-Soon"

I am really impressed! It been a long time that I read a manga with such realistic characters and plot! Most refreshing thing about this manga is that the main female role isn't a drama queen at all smile I love it and highly recommend to those who like to have "goal achievement" for main course and "soft romance" for dessert! \o/ and I don't understand people who says art is not very good, I like it from the start smile
Anyway this was the first story that I ever read from this mangaka but I can't wait to read Makimura-sensei's other works now!

I have to give a sincere thank to wingtip staff for this rightly chosen and nicely done manga. It's truly a worth reading josei.

This is a very sensible manga. Firstly, the theme revolves on culinary, and it's serious about it. I've read some manga labelled as haute cuisine but in fact the romance and other niggling stuff covers 80%. Oishii kankei, supporting by its gorgeous retro art with mouth-watering cuisine pictures, provides a very interesting and insightful view of the culinary world.

Secondly, the characters are very well-built. Each has his or her idiosyncrasy, and their stories and doing are realistic. We can feel the character's determination, thoughts, ponder, emotion, sympathy, and mostly their professional improvement. Sensei has developed a very intricate plot, and all the characters' relationships blend together. The romances are limited but very serious and realistic; we don't get easy-come easy-go love like in idol dramas or many other shoujos. The main character has many supports - many of them from male friends - but only one love.

Thirdly, the plot is quite a smart one. The development of the characters is proper; there are the twist, moment of bitterness and also melting sweetness. I also find in this manga many touching and nice saying/philosophy behind a subtle, simple facade.

Fourthly, the art is so good. I'm totally into retro shoujo art like this. Depiction of delicious cuisine lives up to its name, really.

Overall, this one is highly recommended. Guess I'll try more works of Satoru-sensei.

Extremely likable

Romance manga often suffers from having heroines that are either extreme damsels in distress or extreme martyrs. Momoe is neither, and she elevates the series by being a fairly realistic and likable girl. While Oishii Kankei is not romance heavy, there's still a lot of love and passion (though most of this is directed towards food). There are a few cliches (male romantic interest with a troubled past), but they don't feel forced or overdone. All in all, Oishii Kankei is definitely worth a look.

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.

Unique plot

A nice, feel good, engaging, proper slice of life, interesting, unique and other adjectives, josei manga- how delightful. Honestly, the plot is a good one. About a girls career and the restaurant business. I tell you, itís a refreshing difference. The art's good, the character development great, the romance appropriate for the tone of the manga. 9/10
