"Lunch Queen". Hmmm. It is as bad as the title implies.
The story goes like this: The Nabeshima brothers run a small restaurant in Tokyo. It's a western-type restaurant and they like to stick to their traditional flavor and keep it low-key. After a kind of a misunderstanding let's say, it's not so important why, Mugita Natsumi poses as the older brother's fiancée and starts working at the restaurant and living with the family, while supposedly waiting for him to return home. The presence of a woman in this all-boys home stirs things up. Okay, not that much, this is a Japanese drama after-all...
The main problem is pretty much nothing happens. And it is so slow-paced and boring... Yes, Tsumabuki Satoshi is very cute, but how long can you stand him acting so dumb? Not that long. And their food was SO delicious that people had to close their eyes to bare that much happiness. Because they had a bite of omu-rice. It reminded me of those stupid 90's commercials where beautiful women have a spoonful of yogurt so sensationally... yikes.
Bottom-line: If you need your dose of Japanese drama try "Kimi wa Petto", "Voice: Inochi naki mono no koe" or "Hana zakari no kimitachi e", because this one isn't worth it.
