A long time ago, there existed chefs renowned for their prowess in the art of “bandoh,” the traditional Taiwanese outdoor banquet. However, as times changed, that tradition faded away. On his deathbed, Master Fly Spirit, a master of bandoh, tries to pass his secret recipes to his daughter, Wan (Kimi Hsia), but she desperately wants to escape the family catering business. Young and sassy, Wan tries her luck at modeling in Taipei, only to find herself jobless and on the run from debt collectors. Disillusioned, Wan returns home to her mother who says the family business is hopelessly in debt. They soon realize their only hope is to seize one final opportunity — a national bandoh competition with a huge prize package. Unfortunately, they face stiff competition from Master Ghost Head, a bandoh chef recently released from prison, and Ah-hai, his dreamy, young protégé (Taiwanese heartthrob Yo Yang). Is Wan up to the challenge?
