Right now the foodie in me is loving Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories on Netflix. The main character is The Master, he is a chef that will make anything you want (if you have the ingredients) from Midnight to 7am. Basically, every story centers around a dish and we see a mixture of characters some super serious and others goofy, but adorable talk about why and how certain dish is connected to them personally.

It reminds me of an after hours diner I went to after my late nights in NYC needing something to eat and someone to listen to you as you go over your regrets of the past and ambitions for the future. Plus, the stores are so light hearted you can't help, but fall in love with the series. Oh and the food is pretty impressive as well.

I am giving it 8 stars, because it is subtitled and there are super corny moments for American audiences, but at the same time it is so unique that people who generally love foreign programming will not mind and would give this 10 stars.
