My Review:

I highly recommend this manga if you like great character development, food and an exciting storyline.

I really liked how Hanayu and Hayato both felt remorse for their deception towards each other and deep down they really liked each other.

I was really glad that both have dreams of owning their own restaurants and that Hanayu finally told her dad what she wanted and didn't back down.
