Food isekai are the only good isekai, and this one is the best of those. While Isekai Shokudou and Isekai Izakaya: Nobu are both solid, they're strictly episodic and by the numbers. This on the other hand takes a page out of Sweetness & Lightning with great details and more then enough strong story elements.
As with most isekai, especially fantasy isekai, a significant amount of the appeal is in how the world works around the characters. Instead of going into redundant detail or exposition the world is built slowly through the rotating cast, which each arc properly works through. It is a tad formulaic
but honestly most isekai don't even put in that much work. Most characters are properly motivated, there's that Natsume/Mushishi esque bittersweetness, with delves into darker topics.
This is the redeeming feature, the artistic quality is absolutely gorgeous, some anime live entirely on food alone, like ramen daisuki koizumi, and this manga more then delivers.
I don't need to sell you on this, read one chapter. It speaks for itself.
honestly it's maybe the best isekai i've read. If only more cooking isekai got anime instead of the seasonal harem/power fantasy.
