He casually opened the comments below the video.
“D*mn, is this cutting technique really something an eight-year-old child can possess?!” “I feel like he has decades of experience as a chef.
Could he have started learning from his mother’s womb?” “I give up, I give up.
So this handsome guy is really not just for show.
He has some skills.
” “Some people are just born to be in this industry.
” Someone replied to his comment, “Damn, you can’t even be envious of them.
” “This soup looks fancy.
I wonder if it tastes good?” Someone replied, “It’s really super delicious.
When I went to his store the other day, I happened to buy a serving.
The soup looks fresh and bright, and when I drink it, it has a particularly strong chicken soup taste.
“Could he have added some chicken essence or additives into it?” “That can’t be.
Look at the video from the beginning.
They had stewed the soup themselves.
” Xu Le patiently scrolled down.
That day, Wensi’s tofu soup was only limited to ten servings.
He finally saw a proper evaluation.
“If there’s a chance, everyone must have a taste of that soup in the Eight-year-old cafeteria.
It looks like a show of skill, but in reality, you’ll know how delicious that thing is just by tasting it.
It’s not a waste of the 5,000 years of hard work of China’s history.
” Someone replied, “What does it taste like? Can you describe it?” Continue reading on MYB0XN0 V EL.
COM The original person who posted replied, “It’s a very fresh chicken soup.
It should have been filtered before, so it looks like clear water.
There’s ham, fungus, and tender bamboo shoots inside.
One bite and your eyebrows will fall off.
At first, you won’t be able to taste the taste of tofu, but slowly, you’ll feel the long tenderness.
Anyway, no matter how much I say, it won’t be as good as you trying it yourself.
” Many people were salivating at his description and started to comment within that original comment.
“I petition for Little Master Chef to add this soup to the menu.
” Xu Le thought in his heart.
Wensi’s tofu soup was not difficult for him to make, but if there was no limit to the quantity and hundreds or thousands of servings had to be sold a day, his wrist might not be able to take it anymore.
He might soon develop a tendon inflammation.
The video that was used as an advertising video for the “Eight-year-old cafeteria” only took a day to get more than three million likes.
After calming down her excitement, Lu Yuxi analyzed, “Your previous video caused quite a stir on the Internet, so some people have been suspecting that you have someone backing you, or that the food you make is just good looking and not that delicious.
Anyway, they can come up with all sorts of excuses.
If they have the imagination, they might as well go and write a comedy.
” “Today’s video just happened to suit the trend and became popular.
It eliminated many people’s suspicions.
Also, I have a big discovery!” Lu Yuxi kept him in suspense as she held the phone screen to her chest and said, “I won’t tell you first.
Promise to give me a whole pot of steamed pork buns tomorrow morning and also Eight Treasure Fortune Bag before I tell you.
” There were too many ingredients required to make the Eight Treasure Fortune Bag.
Xu Le had not stocked up ingredients in the fridge for a long time, so he said, “Don’t talk about conditions with me.
If there’s anything important, tell me quickly.
” Lu Yuxi got up and sat on the back of the sofa.
She tilted her head and looked at him.
“I won’t tell you if you don’t agree!” “Okay, okay, but we need to go to the shop to make it.
We don’t have enough ingredients at home.
” Lu Yuxi was not one to pester endlessly.
When she heard him relent, she immediately said happily, “Sure!” She had just raised her phone.
When Xu Le’s call came.
He glanced at the caller ID and picked up the call without thinking.
He gestured to Lu Yuxi to keep quiet.
“Hello, Grandpa Cai.
” “You’ve already received the invitation from the program team, right? Remember to go this time.
This program is very popular.
The viewership for last season’s broadcast was very good.
For the show, they need to invite professionals.
When the production team came to look for me, I recommended you.
” Xu Le was stunned.
Lu Yuxi immediately shoved her phone over and he saw that it was an invitation from the variety show ‘Chinese Restaurant’.
He took a deep breath and said, “Thank you, Grandpa Cai.
” Perhaps this was the system’s reward? Everything seemed to have been arranged.
“Remember to prepare a few more Chinese dishes, especially those rare classic dishes that are about to be forgotten.
” Cai Lan sighed and tried his best to persuade him.
“I’m already so old.
Yet I am still making a documentary like Taste of China to ensure that such good dishes will not be lost and in the future, all my descendants will be able to taste it.
” After exchanging some pleasantries, Xu Le hung up the phone.
Lu Yuxi came up and asked, “Is it that sir?” “Well, he’s pretty supportive of me… well, what are you doing?” Before he could finish speaking, Lu Yuxi pinched the flesh on his cheeks and said excitedly, “They said that they have booked the air tickets for you to fly directly to Bangkok to film the show.
Xu Le, you will also become a huge celebrity in the future.
” Xu Le slapped her hand away and rubbed his face.
“I don’t want to be a celebrity.
” “I’m just a chef who cooks.
It’s fine as long as I’m serious about it.
I don’t care about those superficial things.
” Xu Le looked at the slightly disappointed Lu Yuxi and said, “Besides, I’m not even an internet celebrity now.
There are so many malicious voices questioning me online.
If I rashly change professions, I’ll definitely be scolded to death.
It’s the right path to do what I love.
” After hearing his explanation, Lu Yuxi, who was originally sleepy, had a lit up gaze.
She nodded and said, “Yes, yes.
You can’t be overwhelmed by a petty profit.
Ah, no, although being celebrity is quite profitable, I think you’re more suitable to be a chef.
Tomorrow’s Double Cooked Pork and Eight Treasure Fortune Bag…” “It depends on whether I can wake up.
” Xu Le said, “Remember to ask them to send the ingredients over.
” Lu Yuxi knew that he had agreed and said excitedly, “Alright!” The next day, Li Qing, who had just arrived at the entrance of the shop, exclaimed.
When he saw the long line, he immediately opened the door and called for customers to come in and sit down.
“Hey, young man, do you have any more Wensi tofu soup today?” “I saw the video last night and thought about it all night.
” “That’s right, I’m here for that too.
Also, give me a serving of your Double Cooked Pork!” Li Qing’s head ached as he tried to maintain order.
He shouted loudly, “Everyone, wait a moment.
Line up properly.
Our boss is not here yet.
I don’t know what’s the arrangement today.
” He looked up and saw Lu Yuxi who had arrived late.
He immediately went up and pulled her over.
“Answer their questions quickly.
You’re the receptionist here.
I don’t know anything.
” Lu Yuxi rolled her eyes at him and said to the customers with a smile, “The crispy pork belly and Wensi tofu soup are limited dishes for yesterday.
I’ll discuss with the boss and see if we can make them today.
Don’t be anxious, everyone.
