<i>Chasing after a hungry Munchlax, Ash and his friends end up at Rhonda's, a restaurant run by a girl named Rhonda with Mr. Mime as its head chef. Team Rocket stumbles across another restaurant, Rhoda's, run by a girl named Rhoda with Sneasel as its head chef. Meowth quickly takes a disliking to Sneasel, but Jessie and James want it for Team Rocket.
The episode begins with our heroes walking happily along a path in the middle of a forest. {{ancleanup|Maysection}} is very excited about the Contest, which {{Ash}} says that she'll do great in. May talks about the exciting new challenges she will face in [[Kanto]]'s Contest Halls, and a vision of [[Drew]] appears in her mind to remind her that she's not alone in her dream. Suddenly, {{TP|May|Munchlax}} pops out of its [[Poké Ball]] and starts to smell the air. Obviously smelling something delicious, Munchlax starts to run off in search of the source of the smell. May tells Munchlax to slow down, and runs off after her Pokémon.

May tells Munchlax to slow down, and runs off after her Pokémon. Meanwhile, {{TRT}} is seen slowly walking through the same forest, tired and starving. [[Jessie]] and [[James]] fall to the ground, and Jessie complains how much hard work it is tracking Ash and {{ashfr}}. However, their attention is brought away from Ash as Jessie spots what appears to be a restaurant not far away. The three villains instantly run towards the building, excited at the thought of all the delicious food before Jessie stops them and reminds James and {{MTR}} that they have no money. James and Meowth, unable to stop in time, slam straight into the restaurant's door and fall dejectedly onto the floor. The door opens and a pretty girl greets them and invites them in, saying her name is [[Rhoda]]. Rhoda says that today is her restaurant's grand opening and all of the meals are free, to Team Rocket's delight.

Back with Ash and friends, we find them sitting inside Rhonda's restaurant waiting for the performance to start. The curtains are pulled back and the group looks on in wonder at all the cooking equipment. Rhonda tells Mr. Mime to start, and the Psychic Pokémon does so, using its Psychic abilities to cook, stir, and chop the ingredients.
Sneasel has already finished cooking its meal however, which seems to consist of a simple meat dish with sauce. Team Rocket look on, a little underwhelmed having been told that Sneasel was an amazing chef. James tries a little, and he starts to blush and marvel at how delicious the food actually is. Jessie tries some too, and agrees, with her eyes becoming large and sparkly. Meowth, seeing that Jessie and James seem to like it, tries some. He doesn't have the same reaction however, and finds the food disgusting. As they finish their first meal, Rhoda brings some more food, this time meatballs. Jessie and James try some, and once again find the food delicious. Meowth dumps his meatballs down his throat all in one bite, but is forced to drink all of his water as he finds the food alarmingly hot. Suspecting that some trickery is afoot, he steals one of Jessie's meatballs and eats it. Expecting it to taste horrible, he's shocked to find how delicious it is. Meowth instantly becomes angry however, as he realizes that Sneasel must have made his food nasty on purpose.
Unlike Sneasel's rather plain-looking food, the meal that Mr. Mime has cooked up looks delicious and extremely edible. The group looks on, amazed at such an appealing meal. The group digs in as soon as their dishes are served, but instantly fall back in their chairs. Even Munchlax, who would eat nearly anything, falls over in dismay. It seems that while the food looks delicious, it actually tastes disgusting. Rhonda apologizes, and just at that moment, Meowth comes crashing through the wall followed by Sneasel. The two Pokémon are fighting, and Rhoda desperately tells Sneasel to stop, but to no avail. Sneasel jumps past her, knocking her over and into Brock's arms who mistakes her for Rhonda. The real Rhonda then runs up, wondering what her sister is doing here, and Brock looks at the two twins confused before Rhoda explains that she and Rhonda are twin sisters. It seems that the two restaurants are part of the same building, but are separated by a wall. Jessie and James walk through the hole in the wall, and the two groups are shocked to see each other. Rhoda then walks over to the meal that Rhonda's Mr. Mime created and remarks that it looks good, but doesn't taste good. She tells her sister that her Pokémon focuses way too much on putting on a show instead of making the food taste right. The two sisters argue over whether presentation or taste is most important in preparing food. Meowth then steps in and suggests a cooking competition.
That night, we find Team Rocket speakingspeaks with Rhoda., Shewho explains to them that while the food her Sneasel prepares is delicious, it has problems with making it look so and worries that it cannot put on the same performance as her sister's Mr. Mime can. Jessie and James wonder if they could help, and Rhoda excitedly says that with the help of a Top Coordinator such as Jessie, she cannot fail. Jessie smugly says that she will help, and James looks on, confused at his partner's sudden sense of good will. Jessie, sensing this, whispers in his ear that they can use this as an excuse to stick around and find a way to steal Sneasel, Mr. Mime, and Pikachu.
Meanwhile, Ash and friends are talking to Rhonda, who explains that she has the opposite of her sister's problem. While her Pokémon can make food look delicious, Mr. Mime has problems actually making it taste good. She begs Brock to help her improve Mr. Mime's cooking ability, and Brock says that he understands and will help as much as he can. Rhonda thanks him, and they instantly get to work. A little later, Mr. Mime is preparing some stew under Brock's supervision. Mr. Mime, who up until that point had been stirring the meal by itself, tries to use its Psychic power to add flavoring. Brock stops it however, explaining that it must rely on its own cooking ability, and master the art by itself without help from its Psychic powers. After all, it's trying to improve its cooking ability, not put on a performance.
As Brock explains that to Mr. Mime, Jessie is doing the same for Sneasel. Having prepared a huge block of ice, she tells the Pokémon to make a sculpture out of it. Sneasel does so, slashing at the block of ice with its claws to make an ice sculpture of itself. James remarks that it's rather small however (smaller than a salt shaker even), as they need magnifying glasses to see it.
Back with Brock and Mr. Mime, Brock tells Mr. Mime to taste the stew to check if it needs any extra flavoring. Team Rocket however, are putting ridiculous makeup on Sneasel and getting it to try on lots of different, stylish clothes.
The two Pokémon work throughout the night, perfecting their techniques.

The episode ends with the group sitting inside the now-combined restaurant, where Sneasel and Mr. Mime are happily working together to create a meal for the whole group to enjoy.
