Ronnie Anne and Sid are watching a trailer for a movie called Bark Night, starring Phoebe Powers. When the trailer ends, Ronnie Anne and Sid are excited to see a sneak preview in three hours. At that moment, Rosa enters and says she needs help getting groceries, since Sergio will be busy hosting a birthday party for Sancho. Rosa says that she's planning a special kind of soup themed around the seven seas. After Sid informs her that the movie will start in three hours, Ronnie Anne decides to help out, thinking it'll be short and sweet.
However, while gathering ingredients, Ronnie Anne discovers how tedious Rosa's method of getting food is, as they have to examine every single lime to find the right one, get spices from a very far away street, and carefully watch over a spice plant so they can pick it at the right time. Suddenly, Rosa gets a call from Sergio, who seems to have lost control of the party. When Rosa leaves to alleviate the situation, Ronnie Anne discovers that the movie will premiere in one hour, and decides to skip over Rosa's instructions so she can see the movie sooner. After getting the ingredients from Hi 'n' Buy, Ronnie Anne drops them off to Rosa. With the ingredients obtained, Rosa reveals that she actually has bigger intentions for the soup. She says that a local food critic is coming at 6:00 to taste Rosa's soup and hopes to be declared "City's Best Home Cook". Ronnie Anne is horrified, thinking that since she didn't get the correct ingredients, Rosa's chances of winning are slim. Wanting to get the soup ready before the critic's arrival, Rosa tells Ronnie Anne to go see her movie.
Arriving to the theater, Ronnie Anne meets up with Sid just before the trailers start. However, as the trailers play, Ronnie Anne becomes more and more guilt tripped by the trailers' opening lines revolving around lying and disappointment. This causes Ronnie Anne to tell Sid that must fix her mistake. After exiting the theater, Ronnie Anne tries to call Rosa about the situation, but Sergio's partying blocks out Rosa's ringing phone. Realizing she still has plenty of time, Ronnie Anne reads through Rosa's cookbook and learns that the perfect ingredients for the soup come from the fish market, where through several tasks, she succeeds in obtaining catfish, tilapia, mussels, jumbo shrimp, baby octopus, clams and squid.
Despite getting the seven ingredients, Ronnie Anne discovers on the back a last-second ingredient: crab legs. Unfortunately, the fish market closes, and Rosa calls. Ronnie Anne ultimately confesses that she went to Hi 'n' Buy to get the ingredients because she was close to missing her movie. When she says that she got every ingredient but crab legs, Rosa immediately hangs up. Suddenly, Rosa drives up to Ronnie Anne in the mercado van, quickly telling her to get in. After jumping in, the two proceed to chase after the crab legs guy, jumping over an open drawbridge along the way. Needing a way to stop him, Rosa pulls out a sandal and uses it to press the pedestrian crossing button, changing the light to red, and making the driver halt to a stop. After stopping, Rosa asks the crab man for some crab legs, and he obliges. With all eight ingredients obtained, the two are prepared to head back, but the van explodes after sustaining damage from jumping over the drawbridge. Rosa says that has backup. Cawing like a bird, Sergio and the rest of the pigeons arrive and proceed to carry the two back home.
When 6:00 arrives, Rosa present her eight seas soup to the food critic, and after taking one sip, he instantly loves it, and declares Rosa "City's Best Home Cook" by presenting her with a trophy. Happy that she won, Rosa apologizes that Ronnie Anne had to miss her movie, but Ronnie Anne she got more enjoyment than she could've ever gotten from the movie by getting the ingredients and is more than happy to shop with Rosa. When Rosa comments that she still feels bad that she didn't get to see Phoebe Powers, the food critic reveals himself to be Phoebe Powers, saying that when she's not acting, she shadows as a food critic. Wanting to know how Ronnie Anne and Rosa obtain their ingredients, she decides to tag along on their trip to get ingredients for tomorrow's breakfast.
