Synopsis / 简介
Ever since his childhood, KO TIN-PO (Wong Cho Lam) has tasted a variety of great delicacies, and he is capable of analyzing the food quality and authenticity once he tastes it.

But, owing to the decline of his family, he ends up wandering on the street with his servant LEE WAI (Jack Wu), making a living from selling buns. Also due to his gourmet background, he gets to know a street performer KEI MO-SUET (Joey Meng), the most beautiful girl in Peking NIAN RUOBI (Nancy Wu) and teen celebrity chef MAI SIU-YU (Stephanie Ho), etc. As fate would have it, he comes across Prince YINZHEN (Ben Wong), who is making a tour in disguise, and the two share similar interests. Later on, he is recommended for an imperial chef in the palace, where he runs into his archrival CHOI HOK-TING (Bob Lam), resulting in consecutive fierce battles between them. Meanwhile, TIN-PO has no idea he has been caught in the plot that Prince YINSI (Louis Cheung) hatches to become the rightful heir to the throne. Under such disadvantage, TIN-PO becomes the man who brings luck to Prince YINZHEN, continuously turning the tide for him before his defeat. However, an unexpected betrothal brings him down from the lofty position to the most inferior one of a stray dog……

咸鱼包所发出的「香味」,有人欢喜有人厌。在天宝包点店旁边开面店的米小鱼(何雁诗饰)不断向天宝投诉;另一方面,一国之首康熙(岳华饰)原来三十年前微服出巡时,吃过一口咸鱼包,一吃便爱上,并为了皇宫中找不到此味道而耿耿于怀。
  太子胤礽(陈国邦饰)为讨好皇阿玛,派四皇子胤禛(黄智贤饰)微服出巡到北京城寻找,期间胤禛见识到天宝的超卓厨艺,两人更因而成为莫逆之交,以兄弟相称。天宝助康熙找到了当年的味道,备受赏识,辗转被推荐入紫禁城中的御茶膳房,成为当中一个御厨。
