Lin Jing Yun, an internationally acclaimed young food critic, comes to Dongjiang to seek the cuisine and take the opportunity to start a journey to find her roots.
At this time, the Lin family’s old house where her grandmother lived has long been transformed into a restaurant specializing in traditional Dongjiang cuisine, and Lin comes to taste it.
In accordance with the restaurant’s past rules, chef Cheng Musheng first refused Lin Jingyun’s order, and then said that he could exchange a good dish for a good story.
In the end, Jingyun asked for the most homely and most reflective of the cooker’s skill, “sweet and sour pork”.
But because of Cheng Musheng’s drunken frying, Lin Jingyun was very dissatisfied with the dish after eating it and left in anger, throwing down her chopsticks.
Lin Jingyun’s review on her social platform led Cheng Musheng and the restaurant “go viral” on the internet.
To rehabilitate the restaurant, Cheng Musheng “designed” to secretly take a video of Lin Jingyun admitting that he was a good cook, and posted it to Weibo.
Once the video was released, Lin Jingyun went to ask him at once.
After some arguments between them, Lin Jingyun knew that she was wrong and agreed to tell about her own grandmother’s personal experience, thus unveiling a long-lost family history in the Republic of China period.
