A Nice Romantic Movie with Some Wonderful Culinary Experience
3 October 2018 | by MichaelNontonMuluSee all my reviews

This movie was filled with some of the most exotic and special food from just several cities in Indonesia. And combined with the love stories amongst all the main cast, plus wonderful acting, made this an entertaining movie to fans of romantic drama genre. There was a bit of side story involved, but I felt the main plot was on the journey to find romance.

If you are looking for a movie that would probably motivate you to start culinary journey and want to experience love story plus watching performances from some of the Indonesian top actors & actresses (who were able to portray their characters very convincingly & showed how superior they were compared to some of the more junior newcomers), then you definitely should give this a try.
