Inogashira Goro runs an imported dry goods business. He is also the salesman of his company, and his business often takes him visiting clients in various places. Goro also explores the local eateries and tries their delicious cuisine.

Kodoku no Gourmet is an interesting drama about food! There isn't really much plot nor characters, and the focus is solely on local eateries and delicious meals.

Inogashira Goro is a solitary person; he works alone, he eats alone, and he prefers doing many other things on his own. I think he's a very interesting character, and I'm amazed how he can always tell what he wants to eat at any given time.

There are many times when I feel like eating something but I don't know what, so I try to eat some meals that I think I like to eat, but sometimes it takes a few tries before I can finally say that I'm eating what I really wanted to eat.

Based on a manga of the same title, Kodoku no Gourmet features existing local eateries and widely popular dishes. There's a segment at the end of every episode where the writer Kusumi Masayuki actually visits the establishment where the shooting took place.
