Amazing show on the beauty of Chaoshan cuisine (Recommended to watch the original narration)
17 February 2019 | by kongchenhwaSee all my reviews

I presume the voiceover in English is bad as what the other reviews have said. But the original narration (Mandarin) is amazing, the Chinese choice of descriptive wordings coupled with the amazing way of filming entice me even when I'm full! Chaoshan is the next destination to visit!
