Liu Mobai laughed crazily as he held his forehead. His laughter echoed around the ruins of Immortal Tree palace, entering each of the Immortal Chefs' hearts.
Every Immortal Chef had their hearts sunk.
That Liu Mobai... He's really that invincible?
They recalled their Chef's Challenge with him where they were mercilessly defeated and their Heart of Cooking Path sucked away... and they couldn't help but shiver.
That fellow... had gone too far!
They did want to have someone who could subdue that haughty fellow, but who could do that?
If the Great Demon King lost... who in this Immortal Cooking Realm could do that?
Some Immortal Chefs felt their hearts had turned into cold ash. They slumped to the ground, feeling despair.
They all felt a great humiliation.
The Immortal Cooking Realm had so many geniuses, and now, a Nether Chef had crushed them all...
Their dignity was thrown to the floor and trod ruthlessly!
That kind of heart-paralyzing feeling made them feel as if their hearts were bleeding... If nobody could subdue Liu Mobai, they would have to live in his shadow for the rest of their lives.
They would never have a chance to make a comeback!
Who could defeat this kind of man who can push people to the peak of desperation?
His loud laughter lingered in their ears like the devil's voice, making them irritated.
All of a sudden...
His laughter halted.
Everybody was surprised, lifting their heads to look at Liu Mobai.
They saw Liu Mobai looking at the Great Demon King...
At this moment, some people were somewhat perplexed as they realized something inexplicable and terrifying.
Liu Mobai getting high scores had given the onlookers pressure. However, the Great Demon King still looked pretty calm.
He was holding his dish, his face emotionless.
It seemed the other's high score didn't affect his spirit at all.
With that kind of high score... how could the Great Demon King be so calm?!
All of a sudden, every Immortal Chef's breathing grew short and hard, their eyes brightening up.
Unless... the Great Demon King's dish... could gain a high score too!
"Are you done laughing? If yes, please wipe the drool off your mouth..." Bu Fang said nonchalantly, his eyes gazing at Liu Mobai.
Liu Mobai was bewildered. Bu Fang's attitude somewhat stunned him...
Where's his despair?
How come he looked so calm?
Shouldn't Bu Fang feel despair after seeing his score? Did he really think he could break that record with his dish?
He, Liu Mobai, had the inheritance from the Nine Revolution Clan! Where did Bu Fang have the confidence to defeat him?
Liu Mobai coldly looked at Bu Fang as the latter held his dish, slowly walking to the judges.
Bu Fang flicked his fingers, causing the porcelain blue-and-white plate to slowly spin, heading towards the judges' table.
While the dish was flying, it radiated splendid light with thick aroma, which was so attractive.
People's eyes were glued to that dish.
"Despair... I never had such a feeling."
Bu Fang clasped his hands. Soon, his dish floated in front of the judges.
"Three-Change Demon Beef Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs... Please enjoy."
Bu Fang kept his calm posture from the beginning, and this calmness seemed to spread to the others.
It also calmed down many desperate Immortal Chefs.
Perhaps... a miracle would happen?
Every Immortal Chef had that thought in their mind.
No matter what... the Great Demon King was good at creating miracles.
"Three-change Demon Beef Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs?"
Mo Xiu clasped his hands, squinting as he looked at the dish of Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs.
The red-orange Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs glowed radiantly, and a fragrance lingered on it.
Lord Dog stuck his tongue out, looking at Bu Fang meaningfully.
He was so eager to have Bu Fang's Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs.
Moreover, it looked different from Liu Mobai's Dark Delicacy.
Bu Fang's dish had thick immortal energy, and from its appearance, it was like day and night compared to Liu Mobai's.
After all, compared to Liu Mobai's extravagant dish, Bu Fang's dish looked a little low-key.
Of course, Bu Fang's Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs appeared more attractive.
However, comparing their aromas and the energy fluctuations, it was completely crushed.
Dark cuisine had never used appearance to compete...
Those Nether Chefs were a bunch of freaks with odd methods and techniques.
"So... you represent the strongest monstrous chef in the Immortal Cooking Realm..." Mo Xiu looked at Bu Fang.
Bu Fang was surprised.
The surrounding people were also stunned. Then, their emotions turned a little complicated.
Everybody knew that the Great Demon King came from the first layer.
He came from the backward place of the Immortal Cooking Realm where chefs had scarce resources. Despite this... he could be considered one of the strongest monstrous chefs...
And they, the ones who received enormous amounts of resources in the fifth layer, felt embarrassed, their faces growing hot.
"No, no, no, no. I'm a low-key person. How could I represent the strongest monstrous chef of the Immortal Cooking Realm?"
However, beyond Mo Xiu's expectation, Bu Fang waved his hand and denied it.
The people around wore a dark face.
You are a f*cking Demon King! Low-key, my ass!
In the Immortal Chef Tournament, how many opponents have you crushed?
You were so scary that your opponents didn't even dare to come to the stage to battle against you...
And you said you are... low-key?
The others inwardly hated Bu Fang's guts...
However, Mo Xiu didn't know that. He was a little skeptical as he could see that Bu Fang's cooking skills and innate talent were truly formidable.
This sort of monstrous chef couldn't represent the Immortal Cooking Realm?
The Immortal Cooking Realm still had some monsters even stronger than him?
Since Bu Fang said that he was low-key, the others could somewhat relax their tense nerves.
City Lord Meng Qi loosened her fists, looking at Bu Fang with twinkling eyes.
The Great Demon King looked relaxed... Perhaps she had worried too much.
Mo Xiu didn't talk more. He held his chopsticks and grabbed the Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs.
The red-orange sauce on the rib revealed a faint rainbow, which was so splendid.
From its appearance, it was truly ten times more attractive than Dark Delicacies.
The sparkling gold Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs was coated with thick sauce, which stretched like a silk thread when the rib was picked up.
Its radiance sparkled, oozing with the sauce. All in all, it was so mouth-watering.
Mo Xiu opened his mouth and ate the Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs.
From the name, he understood that this Three-Change Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs wasn't simple, so he was curious what the "three-change" thing was.
From the outside, there wasn't much creativity. Although it looked more attractive than the normal Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs, it was just about appearance.
If Bu Fang had only created a new look, he didn't need to join this Chef's Challenge. He would lose for sure.
As soon as he had the Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs in his mouth...
Mo Xiu suddenly had the feeling that his beating heart froze!
His mind was shaken as the flavor of sweet 'n' sour sauce exploded in his mouth!!
That intoxicating sauce seemed to have vitality, which blasted and lingered in his mouth.
A pure sour flavor of some juice deluged. It was a little sweet and a little sour, which was so tender, covering the taste buds that made people completely sink in it.
That fragrance exploded like a bomb!
Mo Xiu furrowed his brows. Then, his teeth then sank into the meat.
His jaw moved as his eyes narrowed. Then, he gasped.
The ash-gray hair on his head rose and fluttered.
As he began to chew, the meat aroma surged and expanded like ripples, covering him entirely...
Indeed, it covered his entire being!
"Hmm!" Mo Xiu gasped the third time, jolting up from his seat.
He looked at Bu Fang in disbelief.
Mo Xiu's had gasped three times, which also left the other Immortal Chefs baffled.
Eating that dish... made him gasp many times?
"Three-change... Good three-change! Meat... Delicious meat!"
Mo Xiu's eyes looked complicated.
He had forgotten something...
They lost the previous Chef's Challenge because of this kid. He had provided a superior ingredient... which had clinched the other's victory!
Liu Mobai clasped his hands, frowning. He suddenly had a bad premonition.
Mo Xiu's expression was out of his expectation.
Was it true that... Bu Fang's dish had something different?
Impossible... He had used that special vinegar. It was impossible to lose!
Liu Mobai exhaled, regaining his confidence.
It was Lord Dog's turn!
Finally, it was Lord Dog's turn.
Looking at the familiar blue-and-white plate and the familiar Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs... Lord Dog stuck his tongue out.
He couldn't wait anymore.
The dog's paw stretched, and the Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs scattered. With splashing sauce, they entered Lord Dog's mouth.
Gently biting, licking, and chewing...
Right after that, Lord Dog's fur exploded!
Lord Dog barked as his fat rolls shook hard, his fur standing on their ends.
It was the same taste, the same recipe... However, there was something strange in this familiar taste, which greatly astonished Lord Dog.
That Bu Fang boy... He had f*cking hidden such delicious Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs from Lord Dog for a long time?!
This Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs was even more delicious than the Sweet 'n' Sour Dragon Ribs, and he had kept this secret for a long time!
How could he stand this?!
Lord Dog's eyes moved, landing on Bu Fang's figure.
However, seeing Bu Fang's calm and indifferent face...
Lord Dog's rolls of fat shivered.
Alright... to have more Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs in the future, Lord Dog must swallow this anger!
Anyway, even though he tried to restrain his anger, his eyes couldn't leave the Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs while he licked his lips.
The dog's paw rose again, preparing to fish all the remaining ribs.
Realm Lord Di Tai had quick hands. He carefully reached his chopsticks to grab a rib.
As soon as he got the rib in his mouth, Realm Lord Di Tai's furrowed brows relaxed, his face looking joyful.
"Worthy of being my potential apprentice. Little Bu Bu does have my style indeed!" Realm Lord Di Tai exclaimed while chewing. He couldn't help it.
Lu Yi also seized the chance and grabbed a rib. He thought that if he didn't act fast enough, Lord Dog would finish the entire plate of Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs.
To the Great Demon King, Lu Yi's thought was complicated.
The Great Demon King was the first who had defeated him. However, after that, Lu Yi realized how tragic and fierce it was in a Chef's Challenge.
If you make no progress, the others will surpass you, and you will become the stone for them to step on.
And... his nightmare had begun when he saw Liu Mobai.
Now, while eating Bu Fang's dish, his heart twisted with conflicting emotions.
He hoped Bu Fang would win.
Sauce flowed on the red-orange Sweet 'n' Sour Ribs as Lu Yi put it into his mouth...
Slowly, he bit....
After one bite...
Everybody was stunned.
The others surrounding Lu Yi were bewildered.
Because... he was f*cking crying!
The way the four judges reacted... made the Immortal Chefs take in a breath of cold air.
A flicker of hope appeared, growing in their hearts...
It seems the Great Demon King... has a chance!
Liu Mobai's eyes were fixed on Bu Fang.
Sensing Liu Mobai's gaze, Bu Fang looked back at him with his emotionless face.
Then, he clasped his hands, shrugging. "Am I too arrogant now?"
Lord Dog held the blue-and-white porcelain plate, licking it all over. Lifting his dog head, which was smeared with sauce, he spoke, "And now... let's give the scores!"
Mo Xiu inhaled deeply.
In the sky, the God of Chef's Challenge radiated blood radiance.
It would prevent him from giving assessment that was against his conscience.
A tremor expanded.
Then, big, red numbers emerged above his head.
Liu Mobai's eyes suddenly shrank...
The Immoral Chefs went into an uproar!
