How to effectively use this guide
Welcome to this guide! This section will give you a brief overview of what to expect and how to play as efficiently as possible. Remember that you can always post a comment in case you have any questions.
While you get Rob-Bot to help you out when playing alone, or you could join any random multiplayer lobby, I highly recommend teaming up with a friend if you want to go for all your achievements. There are some really tough achievements, so you want to have someone you can rely on. Rob-Bot is very limited in its functionality and requires you to power him every now and then. Random lobbies are a bit hit or miss depending on how serious your teammates are and whether they are actually willing to go for an achievement. I recommend playing with 2 players, as that way each player has its own grill and the amount of new ingredients is limited. This also allows you to easily ‘steal’ ingredients from your friend’s fridge, so you don’t have to wait for him to do stuff. Keep communicating! Tell each other which customer you are busy with or what you need from the other player.
When playing the normal levels you should always take potions with you (unless one of the challenges is to not use potions of course). My general strategy was as follows: both players always take the cleave potion, as it makes everything just so much faster. The 2nd potion depends on the situation. Once the grill is introduced one player should always get the faster grill potion. The leftover slot depends on the situation. Got a challenge to wash all plates or expect a lot of cats or queens? Use the faster washing potion. Expect a lot of rabbits? Get a time slow. Expect a lot of werewolves? Get the instant sandwich potion or some tofu.
Unless it’s an active challenge, there is no real need to go for perfect sandwiches. So don’t wash plates, don’t stack everything tidily, and don’t grill items if you don’t need to. This saves a lot of time. This of course does not apply to cats and queens.
The normal levels each consist of 3 stages played in a row with each having 3 challenges. When going for 3 stars on each level I recommend doing the following: whenever during a stage you failed a challenge, open the menu on your wrist and press “end round”. This allows you to replay the current stage. If you failed to get 3 stars on the 2nd stage and you would continue to stage 3, then you would have to replay stage 1 again to have another go at stage 2.
Throw an ingredient slice so that it lands perfectly centered on top of another ingredient on the plate.
The game is really generous with what counts as ‘centered’, so you should get this without trying.
Serve a non-perfect sandwich to a werewolf.
Another achievement you probably will get without trying. Werewolves are introduced quite early on. Just make sure you ‘forgot’ to center an ingredient.
Unlock every potion in the game.
New potions are unlocked as you progress through the 20 levels of the game. You will unlock the last potion at the final level.
Grill 50 ingredients.
Quite early in the game you will unlock the grill. You should get this automatically while going for all other achievements.
Wash 50 plates.
The washing mechanic is introduced a bit later than the grill, but same applies for this one: no need to worry about it, you will get it without trying.
Serve 50 rabbits.
Rabbits are the 3rd customer type introduced in the game. They are really impatient, so you need to serve them quickly. When playing multiplayer the person who turns in the plate gets the count, so make sure your friend isn’t snagging away all the plates.
Serve 1000 customers.
This one kinda depends on how quick you are with the other achievements. But if you play some endless mode you should be able to farm this easily if needed.
Burn 50 ingredients.
If you put an item for too long on the grill it will eventually burn. Getting this achievement depends on how effective you are with the grill. It is also required to burn some items in creative mode for some recipes. If you didn’t get it naturally you can just drop a bunch of random ingredients on the grill to farm it.
Get 3 stars in all village towns.
Get 3 stars in all forest towns.
Get 3 stars in all castle towns.
For these you need to get 3 starts in all 3 stages of all 20 levels (level 20 has only one stage). Make sure to apply my strategies found in the first section of this guide to make this somewhat easier. To be honest other than maybe 2-3 stages I didn’t have much trouble getting these as long as you both communicate well. I don’t think this is really possible in singleplayer.
Get at least one star when serving the king and queen.
Get three stars when serving the king and queen.
Get 3 stars in the Royal Dinner Service without using any potions.
For these achievements you need to complete level 20 with 3 stars without using potions. This level works differently, as there’s only one stage and you only have 3 customers at once instead of the usual 5. To be honest I expected a really tough challenge, but I got this on my first attempt without too much effort. Just give it a go!
Spend 25.000 coins.
Own 50.000 coins.
Playing the game gives you coins to buy potions and cosmetics with. I recommend only spending money on potions (to get all 3 stars for example) and wait with cosmetics. First get to 50k and afterwards you can spend it on anything you like. Probably one of the last achievements you will have left and you will have to farm. I only had about 15k coins in bank and 15k spent (on potions) after getting all other achievements.
Throw something at Rob-Bot.
Just throw your cleaver or some random ingredient at Rob-Bot.
Activate Rob-Bot overcharge mechanic 5 times. Turn the crank some more to to fill up the overcharge meter.
When playing with Rob-Bot you need to turn the crank time to time to keep him powered. If you keep turning after the yellow meter is full it will eventually turn blue and activate Rob-Bot’s overcharge mechanic. You need to do this five times.
Create or join a multiplayer game to cook with other players.
Multiplayer is kinda mandatory to get all achievements, so you should have this already.
Throw food on another player.
Throw any ingredient at your friend.
Clash of cleavers.
Hit your friend’s cleaver with your own cleaver.
High five another player.
Hit your friend’s hand while both having open hands.
Bump your fist with another player’s fist.
Hit your friend’s hand while both having closed fists.
Steal 10 ingredients from another players fridge.
Taking items from the other fridges is a vital strategy, so you should get this easily while trying to get 3 stars in all levels.
Hit the radish dude five times in a row.
Within the play area a small radish dude will spawn. If you hit it with your cleaver it will move to another location. Once you did this five times a giant version will spawn outside the play area.
Near the door in the play area is a mouse hole. Just drop a slice of cheese near it to unlock this achievement.
Search well and you might unlock the Golden Cleaver.
The description actually tells you exactly what to do! In any village town level there’s a well outside the play area. You need to throw your cleaver into it.
Feed a werewolf cookies.
First you need to unlock werewolves in creative mode by getting the Werewolf’s Delight achievement. After that, start a creative mode round and keep spamming ingredients on the plates until you get a werewolf as customer. This might take a while. Then slice two gingerbread cookies and serve it to the werewolf.
Eat a mushroom.
You need to eat a mushroom by moving it to your mouth. Player 3 or 4 has it in its fridge during the forest town levels. If you don’t have more than two players you can still grab it from the fridge or simply take it in creative mode.
Take the Maillard reaction a bit too far…
I’m not exactly sure on this one. I tried a few things and thought I didn’t manage to unlock it. Yet a day later I suddenly saw I had it unlocked. You need to play with the sheep avatar. Then in creative mode you need to do one of these I think: burn an item and eat it, or complete a recipe in burnt form. I went with the “1st Chef’s Choice”, which is bread and tomato, but instead of using the normal ingredients I used burnt ones.
Enjoy fine dining but eat like a pig.
Play with the pig avatar, grab and slice a truffle in creative mode and eat it.
and I cannot lie!
Same as above, but you need to eat an unsliced piece of ham.
Enter the avatar selection menu and choose the frog. Then ‘kiss’ yourself in the mirror by moving your head close. Also unlocks a very nice costume!
Eat a burnt heart beet.
Burn and eat a beet. I’m not exactly sure whether it needs to be sliced or not, so try both.
Feed one werewolf with only tofu in campaign or endless mode.
Start a normal or endless mode round with at least one other player and both pick the normal and large tofu potions as starting potions. This should yield you 12 tofu. Then play till a werewolf customer arrives and stack all your tofu on the plate.
Serve 30 customers in an endless mode round.
Serve 150 customers in an endless mode round.
Serve 100 perfect plates in a row during the same endless mode round.
Oh boy, the endless mode achievements. Probably the most difficult and painful of them all. You need perfect communication with your friend for this one and work extremely fast. But the biggest pain is that you also require a lot of luck. Endless mode tends to group customer types together. So for example if you get a cat, you will get loads of cats after that, sometimes even like up to a dozen. And this can happen for any type of customer and is random for each attempt. It tends to happen that around 60-80 plates served you will get like 3-4 raccoons at once, and you just can’t keep up with the yoinks. Especially if there are also rabbits around and you need to grill a ton of items. It took us like 20 attempts before hitting 100 plates (being lucky not to get raccoon spam).
Once you do get to 100 perfect, you should try to get to 150 as well. From that point, you don’t need to have perfect dishes anymore so work sloppy, unless it’s a cat or queen. If you try to get at least half your dishes perfect you will still get new potions. There are in-game rewards for up to 200 customers, but going over 150 is not required for any achievement.
I tried to do this in a single-player with Rob-Bot, but it doesn’t really seem possible.
The goal of the creative mode is to discover new recipes by reading vague descriptions. It’s a bit of a puzzle so to speak. If you don’t want to find it out yourself, or if you are stuck, you can use my other guide to view all recipes. All achievements in this section are related to those recipes.
Find 10 recipes.
Find 50 recipes.
Find 100 recipes.
Find 200 recipes.
There are 200 recipes in the game, so you basically need to find them all.
Serve the “Cook-Out Sandwich” recipe in creative mode.
The Cook-Out Sandwich recipe can be found in the attached guide.
Unlock werewolf customer in creative mode.
Unlock rabbit customer in creative mode.
Unlock cat customer in creative mode.
Unlock raccoon customer in creative mode.
Unlock parrot customer in creative mode.
Unlock reindeer customer in creative mode.
You unlock new customers in creative mode by creating the equally named delight recipes of those customers, which you should get automatically once you go for all 200 recipes. New customers in creative are purely cosmetic and do not affect gameplay.
