This is a Work in Progress of a complete Restaurant mode guide for Food Fantasy. It will have all you need to create and improve all recipes, choose which Food Souls to staff your restaurant with and more! For now it mostly focuses on the food souls and recipes.
This is a subsection of my complete Food Fantasy guide. View the main index page for complete information. To keep things tidy, comments are only enabled on the main guide, so click that link to ask questions, add information, or just talk about the game!
Restaurant Staff (Food Souls)
M Food Souls
The best Food Souls to use in the Restaurant are M Food Souls; the ones with White Borders. Those are Jello, Hawthorne Ball, Pudding, Skewer, Pancake, Popcorn, Sandwich, Strawberry Daifuku, Cheese (Unreleased) and Toast (Unreleased).
M Food Souls come with extra Freshness meaning they can work for 3x longer than the average Food Soul in the shop, and they also come with at least 3 Restaurant Skills.
M Food Souls are actually even rarer than URs and you’ll likely see few in your gachapon summonings; however, their shards can be obtained via the Tip Shop for 150 each (In the future you can spend 350 for Cheese, Strawberry Daifuku, and Toast shards). They’re very common and among the best rewards from the tip shop, so buy them eagerly. Most M Food Souls only need 3 stars to max out their restaurant skills, and require less shards than usual to fuse rather than summoning.
R Food Souls
In addition to the Ms, there are 3 R Food Souls designed for Restaurant work: Ume Ochazuke, Omurice, and Jiuniang. All three have 200 base Freshness and two Restaurant Skills (Ordering Expert and Work Out).
They’re not the best, but they’re fantastic replacements for M Food Souls when your team is out of Freshness. Early on you’re likely to not have a full shop of M Food Souls anyway, and being Rares, these souls are very common in the gachapon.
Shards for all three R Food Souls with cooking abilities can be obtained frequently and cheaply in the Tip Shop, upgrading them to 3 stars for skills is recommended and easy to do.
Best cook is an easy category; it’s simply Jello and Hawthorne Ball. Jello reduces cooking time by a percentage (best for large batch sizes) . Hawthorne Ball increases batch size by up to 10 (best for small batch sizes) and display case size.
Skewer is a solid cook if Jello and Hawthorne Ball are busy/refreshing. She increases customer inflow and display case size, but has less Freshness and her third skill is only for Supervisor. Popcorn is also an acceptable replacement cook.
