Description
Around the offices of Tozai News, Shiro Yamaoka has a reputation for being over-blunt, under-ambitious, and generally an all-around slacker. So why has he been given the important job of coming up with the "Ultimate Menu" to celebrate the newspaper's 100th anniversary? Because he possesses qualities his other colleagues don't: an exquisitely discerning palate, an encyclopedic knowledge of food and drink, and a masterful touch in the kitchen.

This series received the 1987 Shogakukan Manga Award for seinen/general manga.

Viz finished their short run with the series, unfortunate for the fans that are left with such a massive amount left to be read.
