Not Love But Delicious Foods Make Me So Happy

Not Love But Delicious Foods Make Me So Happy

F-mi Y-naga is a mangaka whose life revolves around three things: work, sleep… and food! One day, the food-loving F-mi gets an assignment to introduce people to fine dining around the city and – with various friends in tow – she commences a gastronomic tour of Tokyo restaurants. From plates of Italian seafood salad with her room-mate S-Hara and rich French cuisine with fellow foodie, O-ta, to Sushi with her gay friend A-Dou and all you can eat Chinese dim-sum with her secret crush, F-mi is intent on eating her way around the world one dish at a time.
