Description

Wan, daughter of the legendary chef Master Fly Spirit, has run into some bad luck: Her boyfriend has disappeared, her modeling career just isn’t taking off and now a pair of grub-loving debt collectors are after her for a huge amount she can’t pay. What’s a girl to do but run back home to Mama? As it turns out, her plucky, showtune-loving stepmother, Puffy, is in the same boat and has beaten a path back to a small shop in a country market. On cue, an opportunity (and heartthrob Yan Yo) appears for Wan to make the cash she needs, and then some — if only she could find Master Fly Spirits’ secret recipes.

TROPICAL FISH director Yu-Hsun Chen returns after 16 years with this colorful pop comedy celebrating badoh, the Taiwanese outdoor banquet tradition. Blending multiple genres with plates full of gourmet grub and a hefty helping of food-fanatic classics like Juzo Itami’s TAMPOPO and Stephen Chow’s THE GOD OF COOKERY, ZONE PRO SITE stretches like a street noodle, but always remains satisfyingly toothsome.
