    In my opinion as long as it tastes good I can care less how it looks. I think people focus on the look more than flavor. The level 2 guy should have cooked the veggies before then mixed it with the eggs.

    People commenting on the new Food Scientist, while I'm here thinking "Damn, my omelette is nowhere near these ones (probably goes for the taste as well)".
    Also to be honest, I don't mind the new Food Scientist, I think having different characters gives more authenticity. (I know, I'm a hypocrite but idc)
