The different thing in this game from many other "cooking" games is that the player can see the reactions of the character when eating some meals or food. For example, if you spicy too much one dish, the face of the character will show you the effects.

The visuals of the game are rather different. They don't pretend to be realistic or nice, but they get appealing anyway, and the faces and bodies are funny to watch
