GAME SYNOPSIS/FAQ META-INFO
This is a Wii console game that uses the Wii's unique controller to simulate
cooking actions. You flip burgers by flipping over the Wiimote, dice onions
by "chopping" downward very quickly, etc...
On top of the basic cooking mechanics, Supervillain studios has layered a
time-management game and a restaurant career mode where you can work your
way up from a burger flipper to the owner of a fancy restaurant. You can
delegate cooking tasks to underling chefs, each of whom has unique abilities.
The overall style of the game is fairly clever and witty. There's lots of
jokes and stereotypes about the restaurant business throughout the game.
This game was favorably received, with a 76% metacritic score
(metacritic.com). Most complaints about the game are that it's too short;
you can easily beat it in under 10 hours.
Although the cooking aspect is similar to Cooking Mama, it's been simplified
a lot and the focus is more on managing your time.

QFF- Frequently asked Questions
Q. Is this game like Cooking Mama?
A. A little bit, the cooking part has been simplified a lot and instead
there's a focus on time management and progressing through a storyline.
I personally think Order Up! is a lot more fun. It was scored about 15
points more highly than Cooking Mama on Metacritic.com. If all you're
interested in is preparing dishes and going through lots of steps to
make them, then you'd probably like Cooking Mama. If you just want to
play a fun game that has a slight cooking aspect, then try Order Up!.
Q. What's the difference between Normal and Hard mode?
A. In Hard mode, the progress bars will disappear from stove/grill items.
You will have to go by the aroma lines to tell when something is done.
This makes cooking for Dusty a lot harder.
In Normal mode, the game pauses your cooking task when adding spices.
Your assistants/oven/food processor will continue their tasks while
paused though, making this a cheap trick to exploit. In Hard mode,
you'll continue cooking even while adding spices.
[Thanks Matthew Crider!]
Also, the final opponent in the Fortified Chef tournament will be harder.
Q. How do I add spices?
A. Press the [-] button. Choose a spice category and then the spices.
You must press the OK button on the left when you're done, otherwise
it won't actually add anything.
Q. Why can't I impress the Food Critic?
A. In order to pass, you need to cook his food to 'Good' or 'Perfect',
and it must be spiced appropriately. He always orders a Chef's Special.
Notice that one of the steps says 'Needs Spice'. When you're doing
that step, open the spice menu. On the left side, it will show you
what spices you need to add. It will put a check mark through the spice
when you've chosen the right one. You may need to add more than one
spice, and some spices may look similar to others.
Adding the wrong spices or extra spices will cause you to fail.
Q. What's Quick Mode?
A. Quick mode lets you try out cooking for different restaurants. It's
played in Normal mode (with progress bars), but you have no spices
and can't make any specials.
Q. What do the restaurant names mean?
A. El Fuego = "The Fire" (Spanish).
Stuffolini's = A made-up Italian-sounding name.
Chez Haute = "High Home" (French, literal)
Restaurants (especially French ones) use Chez the way the Italians use
Cafe. It implies a home-like, friendly restaurant. Since it can also
mean 'Place', you could translate it as 'High Place', since the
restaurant is up high on a building.
Although 'Haute' literally means 'High', in culinary terms 'Haute
Cuisine' is a term for fancy, elaborate food; usually prepared and
So you can think of the name as sort of a double-meaning joke.
Q. What's the point of the Chef Tip Line (at the payphone)?
A. Nothing. He offers no useful tips, but says about 10 different things.
From the opening screen, select 'New Game', then 'Normal' mode. If you
want to put on the paper hat that came with the game, you can do so now.
Choose the gender of your chef.
Burger Face - DAY 1
Once you've confirmed your choice, you'll be dropped into your first
cooking experience at Burger Face.
Here, a Burger Face employee will explain the basic cooking mechanics.
Follow along with the instructions to select items from the order ticket,
drop them in the right places, and then perform the indicated actions to
cook them. If you get stuck or closed the instructions before reading
them, refer to the cooking section of this FAQ.
Gravy Chug - DAY 1
After your first day, you'll find yourself stepping into your very own
diner as it's head (and only) chef. At the summary screen at the start
of the day, you'll see your objectives:
1. Clean up the restaurant
2. Buy all 12 basic recipes
3. Buy 4 "Chef's Special" recipes
4. Earn 500 coins
5. Impress the Food Critic
The food critic will show up when you have the other 4 objectives met,
but you can complete the other objectives out of order, if you like.
You have 0 coins at the moment, so it seems like you can't buy anything.
HOWEVER... place the Hand cursor over the newspaper boy as he rides
past you, and press 'A' (you have a limited amount of time to do it).
He'll fall over, then take you to an easy mini-game that will let you
earn 20 coins. (See the Mini-Game section)
If you missed the newspaper boy because he already rode past, just click
on the 'Island' icon in the top-right corner, then click on 'Gravy Chug'
to come back and try again.
I'd suggest you use a couple of the coins you get to use the phone booth
on your right and call the Delivery Guy.
Pay the delivery guy and you'll hopefully get a "Special Ingredient" to
use on your first day. You can dramatically boost the cash you get to
Once inside, take order tickets and cook food as they showed you at Burger
Face. Each day, four tables of diners will come through your restaurant
for you to cook for.
Try to cook everything perfectly (this requires each step to be 'Perfect'
as well). This doubles the amount of money you get compared to a 'Good'
dish. Feel free to throw out anything that isn't Perfect and try again.
Don't worry about customers leaving because you didn't get to them (it
takes a very long time). Try to practice getting all the dishes to finish
at nearly the same time. If you focus on completing one dish and then
move on to the next, the first completed dish will get cold while you work
on the second one. A dish isn't "complete" till you've finished all it's
steps though... Try using these tricks:
- leave the finished item on the table as long as you can
(this doesn't work on the stove or grill, but items you've pulled
from the fryer or oven can be left sitting there)
- finish all but one item of each ticket, then go down the line and
complete only the last steps
- cook items simultaneously (leave a little bit of delay before you
start a second item so you'll have time to flip/finish the first)
You should end up with around a hundred coins at the end of the day.
Gravy Chug - DAY 2
Shove the newspaper guy again for another 20 coins.
You should get the second row of menu items for free, along with an
assistant chef: Crispin Brown
If you give Crispin a "Fry" task, he'll do it perfectly for you. If you
give him anything else, he'll do a 'Good' job. There's a few things you
can't give him, but he's incredibly useful right now.
Call the Delivery guy again, paying the 1 coin to spin the wheel.
If you have over 50 extra coins, read the newspaper and pick 'Services',
then pay to clean up your restaurant.
Today, try to unload any 'Fry' tasks on Crispin. If you mess up on a
dish and get a 'Good' or lower rating, then give Crispin the rest of it
since you won't get Perfect anyway.
Gravy Chug - DAY 3
Shove the newspaper guy, then answer the phone. Follow the directions
to go to the Market.
There you'll meet the spice merchant and play his mini-game. When you
win, buy at least 5 (preferably 10) of table salt, brown sugar, onion
powder, barbecue sauce and gravy. If you have a bunch of cash, buy
10 pepper as well. You have no use for Malt Vinegar or Vegify at the
When you get back, shove the newspaper guy again.
Call for your delivery, then run the day just like Day 3.
Gravy Chug - DAY 4
Shove the newspaper guy. Do this every day, every time you see him.
Today you'll get a call to head to the market again where they'll be
offering some Chef's Specials.
Whenever someone buys a Chef Special, you get a bonus 10 coins. The
downside is, they require the use of Spices, and YOU have to cook them
(not an assistant) to put it in.
You have to eventually buy the first four Chef Specials for each
location, and they are your biggest moneymakers, so buy as many as you
can now. Hopefully, you can buy the first three.
Buy some pepper from the spice guy if you don't already have some.
If you have extra money, hire Larry Cheezler from the newspaper menu.
He will divert lots of customers to your specials, raking in the cash
Go back, shove newspaper guy, call delivery guy, etc...
Gravy Chug - DAY 5
With luck, you can buy your last special(s) today, and complete your "Earn
500 coins" star. Don't bother upgrading your Chef Knife or any of the
equipment in the restaurant.
Gravy Chug - DAY 6
If you have four stars, the food critic will be showing up to grade you.
DO NOT pay for the delivery guy today! The food critic will be your
El Fuego - DAY 1
If you have enough money, buy the El Fuego restaurant and go there.
Now your objectives are the same as at the diner, but you have to earn 750
coins. Your recipes and specials cost more, but you make twice as much
from your patrons.
Leave the first (50-coin) Chef Special to last, since you can't make it
till after you complete all 5 stars anyway.
You can hire 3 new chefs (note that the most you can have at one time is
two, and your assistant chefs follow you from restaurant to restaurant).
I'd recommend replacing one of your chefs with Hashi Ichiro as soon as you
can. You can probably get rid of Crispin (you can always re-hire him
later) since there's not a lot of frying to do here.
New spices and 4 new Chef Specials also became available when you got your
5th star. The new Chef Specials for the Gravy Chug are very expensive,
use tons of spices (usually the more expensive 2-coin spices) and aren't
necessary to have in order to move on. If someone orders them, they pay
off double (20 coins!), which also happens to be how much you get from a
generic chef special at El Fuego. Save your money for El Fuego.
El Fuego - DAY 2+
El Fuego has different recipes, cooking techniques and spices, but the
gameplay is basically the same as at the Gravy Chug. Just do what you
did there till you've gotten all 5 stars and are ready to move on to
There is NO grilling here, so don't hire Lunk Manhood.
I'd also suggest not upgrading any equipment here either.
The patron, Dusty Kiester, will show up here. He's a pain in the neck
to cook for, so you may want to just treat him like any other customer
and not bother burning his food.
After you buy Chef Specials here, don't forget to load up on the 2-coin
spices as well (especially jalapeno, and cumin).
Stuffolini's - DAY 1
When you buy Stuffolini's, head back to the market to play the new
spices mini-game. Assuming you win, you'll unlock the 3-coin spices.
Aside from needing 1250 coins for your fourth star (and Stuffolini's
paying you triple what Gravy Chug did), it's mostly the same.
One of the new Chefs you can hire (Cecil) is pretty good if you like
to finish all your dishes Perfect (and why wouldn't you?).
Since buying your fourth restaurant is pricey, and filling out its
menu is even more pricey, you may be here a while. It might be worth
upgrading your equipment (though not your food processor: you still
have no use for it)
Chez Haute - DAY 1
You can finally move up to Chez Haute, your finest restaurant.
It's so fancy that two of it's dishes (three once you've completed it
and bought the bonus chef specials) use the food processor! It's
still probably not worth upgrading though.
If you're going for assistant chefs that are good at cooking food,
you can replace Hashi Ichiro with Elita Von Snoot now.
Fortified Chef Challenge
With 5 stars at Chez Haute, you can challenge the Fortified Chef!
Even though the manual says to stock up on spices before you go, ignore
it- you have unlimited spices in the final rounds!
You'll have to face off with your opponent in making 3 dishes, which are
randomly chosen from every dish in the game. Even so, it's probably not
going to be too tough for you.
QFR- RESTAURANT LOCATIONS
Each restaurant location follows a similar format. First you'll purchase
it, then you'll be able to move in and start cooking. Each starts out
with 1 row of menu items containing 3 recipes. Three more rows are
available for purchase. Each row you buy also allows you to buy the
matching Chef Special from the black market. People who buy a Chef's
Special will pay you a bonus tip.
Optional Chef Specials always require spices that won't be available
till after you get that restaurant to 5 stars. Sometimes they require
spices that won't be available till several restaurants later.
If you know what spices to add to what steps, you can get all the chef
specials for free! Instead of paying to learn them, just wait till the
customer orders the regular version of the dish, then add the spices to
turn it into a chef special. The customer won't pay more for it, but
you'll have learned that special for free!
[Tip thanks to Starrunr & Matthew Crider]
Each location also starts off with a nearby phone booth (used mostly to
call the delivery guy) and a newspaper boy who will deliver the paper.
The newspaper he leaves behind can be clicked on; this will let you buy
upgraded equipment and clean up the restaurant (needed to get 1 of the
stars for that restaurant). You can also hire assistant chefs from it.
If you shove the newspaper boy by clicking 'A' on him, you'll play a
mini-game that gives a different amount of cash depending on your location.
In order, the restaurants are:
Gravy Chug (GC) - A traditional diner (think "Denny's")
El Fuego (EF) - A mexican restaurant
Stuffolini's (ST) - An italian restaurant
Chez Haute (CH) - "Haute Cuisine", elaborate chef creations
Your goal is to work the restaurant up from 0 to 5 stars. You get a star
for each of these goals:
1. Clean up the restaurant (buy this service from the newspaper)
2. Purchase all 12 basic recipes (buy from the menu board out front)
3. Purchase all 4 Chef Specials (buy from the Black Market)
4. Earn a certain amount of cash (varies by location, see chart)
5. Impress the Food Critic (He'll appear automatically the day after you
get 4 stars- if you fail to impress him, you can call him again from
The more stars your restaurant has, the more people per table will
show up. With 0-1 stars, you'll get your regulars + 1 other person.
Each star after that will tend to bring in 1 more person per table to a
max of 4. A 5-star restaurant will see mostly full tables.

QFP- PATRONS ("Regulars")
You'll be seeing some people repeatedly visit your restaurants. These
people have names and their own likes and dislikes. There will always
be one of them at every table.
If you add the spice they like to their food, they'll give you the "Spice
Bonus" in addition to their tip. If you give them the spice they hate,
they and their whole table will leave without paying you anything. For
everyone except Russel, the Count and Dusty, you only need to add their
spice to any one ingredient.
These regular patrons will never order Chef Specials, but the other
people they bring in might. Non-named generic patrons have no special
The regular's ticket will always be the one on the far left. If you
forget what kind of spice they like, you can pay coins (amount varies by
location) to get a reminder.

(1) If they like a particular spice, they actually like that entire

Jalapenos, Garlic or Mustard Powder. However, she wouldn't give
you any more of a tip for a more expensive spice.
(2) For Dusty, cook any grilled/fried/stove items till they're over
halfway into the final red box (almost at the flame icon). You
can still flip/stir stove food so that it doesn't burn that way.

(3) For the Count, remove any grilled/fried/stove items as soon as you
put them on. Don't even flip his burgers.
(4) Maria should supposedly hate Aromatic food (there's never a tip that
tells you what she hates, but if you add Sugar to her food, she'll
leave a nasty comment about how much she hates Aromatic spices)
(5) Every meat step in Rusell's food must be vegified! Even if you
vegify it in one step and cook it in the next. Failing to do so
will make his table leave without paying.
QFA- Assistant Chefs
Three assistant chefs will be available for you to hire in the beginning.
One will join you for free, then you can hire more as you get the money.
You can have a max of two assistants, and they are not limited to the
location where you bought them. If you go to another location, the
assistants will come with you.
If you try to hire a 3rd one, you'll be asked to fire one of your existing
assistants. You can always hire them back if you need them later. Each
one has their own strengths and weaknesses. Aside from the cash it takes
to hire them, they don't take a cut of your daily pay.
All assistants will at least cook any assigned ingredient to 'Good'. Some
can cook certain items perfectly. Only the Santos will add spices to a
dish, even if it's otherwise cooked well (So even though Ichiro can carve
perfectly, he'll cost you the Chef's Special bonus if you ask him to carve
the meat for Encrusted Prime Rib since he won't add the spices to it).
Hiring cost: 25, available at start (Will join you for free on Day 2)
Pro: Can perfectly cook any frying task (does not include Saute)
Con: There's not many frying tasks after the first restaurant
It's hard to beat Free, and he's very helpful at the first restaurant.
Hiring cost: 25, available at start
Pro: Patrons take longer to become angry (this is a passive effect,
you won't see him juggle or do anything out in the dining room)
Con: Can't cook anything perfectly
Very annoying sounding. Occasionally pies himself in the face when
he doesn't have anything to do.
Hiring cost: 50, available at start
Pro: Nearly all guests except for regulars will order specials
Con: Can't cook anything perfectly
Larry is an interesting choice, especially if you have lots of specials.
He can bring in lots of cash for you, but he's just dead weight in the
kitchen. When I get 4 patrons at a time, sometimes I'll pick a dish to
sacrifice and let Larry cook it all. It means losing half the tip, but
I'll be done with the table faster. Larry's one of the few assistants
that eventually pays for himself.
Hiring cost: 50, available after 5th star at Gravy Chug
Pro: Perfectly cooks any Grilled items
Con: There's NO grilling at El Fuego and very little at Stuffolini's
Definitely don't hire him when he becomes available, unless you're still
playing the Gravy Chug a lot. He's helpful at Chez Haute, but useless
Hiring cost: 100, available after 5th star at Gravy Chug
Pro: Perfectly Slices, Carves, Cuts, Chops, Dices
Con: Eventually overshadowed by Elita Von Snoot
He's one of my favorite assistants at this point in the game. There's
quite a lot of work that he can knock out Perfectly. As a bonus, he's
very impressed with himself and tells you how awesome he is at every
Hiring cost: 150, available after 5th star at Gravy Chug
Pro: Adds spices to food that needs it (including patron orders). This
does not use up your spice supply.
Con: Only cooks food to "Good", costing you half the basic tip.
Chef Special food can be annoying (especially at the final restaurant
where everyone and their brother orders Volcanic Island). It's also
a pain to cook for Dusty, especially in Hard Mode. Since he can only
cook food to "Good", you lose a little tip money. If he cooks for a
patron, you end up losing 1-4 coins since the Spice Bonus doesn't
quite cover the lost cash. If he cooks a chef special, you end up
making money in the long run. Since he doesn't use up your own spices,
he eventually makes his hiring cost back.
Hiring cost: 100, available after 5th star at El Fuego
Pro: Acts as a 2nd oven
Con: Cooks everything (except Baking) to Good.
Possily the most useless chef.
The manual and his interview implies that he can cook anything made out
of dough originally. However, he can't make pizza, boil pasta or
spread sandwiches. If he can cook anything perfectly, I haven't found
it yet. His only benefit is that you can use him to Bake instead of
the oven. He's not any faster, but you can have 2 baked items waiting
to come out at once. This isn't very helpful.
As a bonus, he sounds like Strong Sad from HomeStarrunr.com.
Hiring cost: 200, available after 5th star at El Fuego
Pro: Cooks EVERYTHING handed to him perfectly
Con: Takes about 50% longer to cook than any other chef
Since time isn't much of a concern, Cecil is really great at helping you
cook everything perfectly. He can't bake, make pizza, spread butter or
add spices to anything, but he can do just about everything else.
Hiring cost: 300, available after 5th star at El Fuego
Pro: Makes your other assistant cook faster
Con: Can't cook anything better than "Good"
Again, since time isn't much of a concern, his special benefit isn't very
helpful. If you want to get done with your days in a hurry, pair this
guy up with Dash McCracken.
Hiring cost: 250, available after 5th star at Stuffolini's
Pro: Twice as fast as most chefs
Con: Can't cook anything better than "Good"
He's really, really fast. If you're trying to get done quicker, or you
are willing to sacrifice some meals, he'll crank them out in a hurry.
ELITA VON SNOOT
Hiring cost: 500, available after 5th star at Stuffolini's
Pro: Perfectly cooks any stove or knife-related task
Con: Sounds so helpful and friendly she's a bit annoying
She can do everything Ichiro does AND boil/saute on the stove perfectly.
This does not include frying or grilling. If you put her together with
Cecil, you have the widest variety of perfectly-cookable stuff.
Hiring cost: 1000, available after 5th star at Stuffolini's
Pro: Never falls asleep, about 50% faster than most chefs
Con: Can't cook anything better than "Good"
I definitely don't think he's worth 1000 coins. I would probably have
switched his hiring cost with Elita if I was designing the game.
On your 3rd day at the Gravy Chug, you'll get a call to go to the Farmer's
Market and visit the Spice merchant. Master Miyoda will make you go through
a mini-game to get access to them (and another mini-game to get access to the
top two rows of spices)
To add spice(s) to a recipe, press the [-] button. The spice menu will come
up... click on the type of spice, then select the spice you need. You can
only add 1 spice of each type to any individual step. When you've selected
all the spices you want to add, click the OK button on the left. If you
selected one you don't want, you can choose 'None' to cancel it. Spice
Selection pauses cooking in Normal mode, but not in Hard!
If the recipe step is marked 'Needs Spice', the spices will be pictured on
the left, and they'll be checked off when you select that spice to add. If
you don't see the check box, you added the wrong one. Some spices (Balsamic
Vinegar, Hoisin and BBQ sauce) look very similar. Salt and Pepper are only
slightly different colors in the base part of the picture. You can (and
must) add several types of spice at once for some steps.
Patrons who want special spices won't tell you in the ingredients list, you
just have to know to add it.
All Chef Specials are based on regular, non-special items. To make them
special, you add spices at certain stages. The order ticket for the special
vs. non-special item looks exactly the same, except that the Chef's Special
ingredient stages will be marked with 'Needs Spice'. When you've added all
the spice the dish needs, a cloud will appear with the name of the Chef
A customer wants Cinnamon Pancakes. Cinnamon Pancakes are just regular
pancakes with Cinnamon added during cooking. The order ticket will just
say "Pancakes", but each cooking step will say "Needs Spice".
As you're cooking each, press [-]. A picture of Cinnamon appears in the
top-left corner. When you add Cinnamon from the 'Sweet' column, a check
box appears through the picture of the Cinnamon.
When you say 'OK' to add it for the fourth time (on the last pancake), a
cloud appears and says "Cinnamon Pancakes".
An analysis of the spice use is presented below.
For each spice, the amount used in regular recipes, optional recipes and by
random patrons at each restaurant are displayed, along with the total used
throughout the game.
As an example, the entry for "Pepper" says it's used in 2 recipes at the
Gravy Chug, 1 optional recipe at the Gravy Chug, 1 patron at El Fuego and
Stuffolini's (Maria) and it's generally used at all restaurants throughout
GC = Gravy Chug, EF = El Fuego, ST = Stuffolini's, CH = Chez Haute
(The number under this column shows how many times the spice is used in
the first four chef specials)
P = This column shows how many times the spice is used by a patron
O = This column shows how many times the spice is used in Optional recipes

Although you can think of cooking as series of mini-games, there are a
bunch of non-cooking mini-games that you can play for extra coins or other
advantages. This section lists how to play them.
SPECIAL DELIVERY (Ned's Tasty Bits)
Spend 1 coin at the payphone to call Delivery Guy, pay an amount
(varies by location) to spin the wheel. If you lose (or get a bad
reward) you can leave the location and come back for another shot.
If all three jackpot wheels line up on the same symbol, you win
that ingredient for the rest of the day. If that ingredient is
used in a recipe, you get a bonus (equal to the Patron's spice bonus)
from the person that ate it. This is in addition to Chef's Special
and regular tips. Although it's possible to not win anything or
win a crappy ingredient, this doesn't happen often till you get to
the final restaurant. Then the winning rate drops to 25% or so.
Imported Beef: Affects most meat (beef, lamb, veal, etc..)
Organic Vegetables: Affects all vegetables (this is probably the
best result, since nearly every recipe at every restaurant uses
Fresh Fish: Affects fish and Calamari
Free-Range Chicken: Also affects duck
Exotic Cheese: Helps a lot at Stuffolini
Absolutely Nothing: Doesn't come up often till Chez Haute
You don't have to do anything special to use the Reward ingredients,
they'll be automatically used. You'll notice 'Ingredient Bonus' pop up
when customers tip you after getting their food.
NUGGET TAKES A NOSEDIVE
Click 'A' on the newspaper boy as he rides past you. There's a limited
opportunity to do it when he gets close to you and before he tosses out
his paper. If you miss or want to do the game again, you can leave the
location and come back.
Cars will drive by and toss out bundles of newspapers, 7 at a time.
You can click 'B' on them before they hit the ground to destroy them.
There is no penalty for mashing B like mad.
Each paper you hit in a row gives you 1 more point than the one before
it. Points don't seem to matter though, but letting papers hit the
ground does. A new set of 7 is launched as soon as you clear the last
one, so if you are really fast, you can shoot down 105 and if you wait
till the last second to zap them, you can get by with as few as 70.
The reward is the same either way.
If you complete it perfectly, you get a large amount of cash that
varies by location. If you let a bunch of papers hit the ground you
Using your knife a lot at a restaurant without upgrading it.
You'll have to tilt your knife to the left (into the Green zone) and
press down to sharpen. Hold it steady at that angle till the knife
fills up with color. Then tilt it to the right and repeat.
You can keep cooking. If you're very slow, it's possible that patrons
will get mad at you.
Going to the spice market on Day 3 at Gravy Chug (you'll be forced to
do it). After you've played it, you can repeat it every day by
clicking the pepper on the table left of Master Miyoda.
Move the wiimote in the displayed gesture. You don't have to press
If you're too far from the screen, the Wiimote may not be very
sensitive. Hold very still before and after the motion (it may take a
second or two after you finish moving for it to register- if you move
during that time you'll probably fail that gesture).
Cash. 10 coins or so for a perfect 10 out of 10. [Thanks Dawn Chia!]
Going to the spice market after you've gotten the 5th star at El Fuego.
You can repeat it every day after that by clicking the knife on the
right of Master Miyoda.
Sharply "chop" downward with the Wiimote when you think the knife is
over the middle of the carrot.
50 coins for a perfect 10 out of 10, + bonus coins for any extra. You
can get more than 60 coins this way.
Randomly appears at the start of some days when you enter the
Move the sponge all over each plate quickly to clean them up. You
don't have to press any buttons. The wiimote makes squeaky noises
when you do this.
You have to clean 10 in a time frame so long that you have to be
really, really slow (or trying to lose) to fail.
Nothing if you win. If you fail, your store is shut down for the day
and you have to repeat the game the next day. Any special delivery you
may have won is lost.
It's possible you might lose some cash, but I'm still testing this.
RATS IN THE KITCHEN
Randomly occurs, though you can supposedly make it happen more often
by trashing lots of ingredients.
Move over and press 'B' to stun rats. You have to zap 15 of them in
a limited time frame.
Nothing if you win. If you fail, your store immediately closes and
all patrons leave. The next day, you'll get the Health Inspector.
Randomly occurs even if you don't use your assistants, though you can
make it happen more often by using one a lot. If they fall asleep
it will be halfway through the day. A second one may fall asleep
after the 3rd table as well.
Wave the wiimote from left-to-right or up-and-down as indicated VERY
QUICKLY to wake the assistant.
Nothing if you win. If you fail, that assistant will be gone for the
rest of the day, but return the next day.
Letting a food item burn on the grill/fryer/stove. Either the top
or bottom indicator must get all the way to the Flame icon. The
indicators move slower when they get to the last red square.
Aim at the fire, press and hold B. It helps to start from one side
and work your way to the other. When the extinguisher runs out,
shake the wiimote till it's full again, then continue to aim at the
fire while holding B.
If you win, then only that ingredient you were working with is lost.
If you lose, the sprinklers come on and your restaurant is shut down
for the rest of the day.
Each day, you'll get four tables of customers. At the start of a new
restaurant, you'll probably only get 1 customer per table (always one of
your regulars). As you approach 5 stars, you'll eventually get 3 and 4
Click tables in the order they came in to work on their order. You cook
for one table at a time, and they never order more than 1 course or drinks
of any sort, apparently.
Each table slowly grows more unhappy the longer they sit and wait for their
food. This doesn't seem to have any game effect. Tips in the game say
that they'll eventually walk out, but testing in both Normal and Hard mode
shows that it takes a really, really long time (assuming they do it at all).
I've tried to ignore the first table to come in, taking care of all three
other tables ahead of them, then making them wait a few minutes after that
to take their order... they had a red 'Angry' face, but never left and
didn't leave a smaller tip.
In theory, they will eventually leave, but I've made one table that
came in at the beginning wait till last to be served (they had a red "angry
face"), but they still didn't leave. It didn't affect the tip they left
either. They didn't leave in Hard mode either.
Once you've gotten the order, a bunch of tickets appear at the top of the
screen above the stove. The leftmost one is from a regular patron, and
will need either a special spice or some special handling. The others are
from the patron's friends.
Try to delegate cooking tasks to assistants and cook the various orders in
such a way that they all finish about the same time. If one order finishes
early and sits there a long time, it will get cold and your tip will be
Although you can't normally let stove/grill items sit there after they're
done, if you give them to assistants you can let it sit on the assistant
after they complete it.
If you cook every step perfectly AND deliver it fresh and hot, you'll get
the "Best Tip" amount listed in the restaurant chart (12, 24, 36 and 48
coins depending on the restaurant).
If it's cooked "Good", you'll get half that. "OK" is 1/4 of that.
If it's been allowed to cool about halfway, you get 2/3 of the adjusted
amount, or 1/3 if it's very cold.
So the difference between a Perfect, Hot dish at the final restaurant and
an OK, cold dish is 45 coins (48 for Perfect+Hot or 3 for Good+Cold).
If an item says "Spice Needed", you need to either cook it yourself or have
The Santos cook it. You'll need to press [-] while cooking to bring up the
spice menu and add the spice(s) it says to use.
If you cook a Chef's Special, you get a bonus amount of cash on top of the
regular tip. If you used an ingredient that you got from the Special
Delivery guy, you get another bonus amount. So, the most you can get for
a single table is:
"Regular": 48(Perfect+Hot) + 20(spice bonus) + 20(ingredient) = 88
3x Guests: 48(Perfect+Hot) + 80(chef special) + 20(ingredient) = 148
Total: 88 + 148x3 = 532 coins for a single table!
You can make a non-special into a special by adding the right spices at
the right time, but this will not get you a Chef Special bonus if the
guest didn't order it.
Each food order has 3-4 steps (usually 4). Each step might make use of the
stove, grill, fryer or cutting board and may need to be handled differently.
If you mess up a step, you can throw it in the trash and redo it. Only
pizza and spreading butter will have to be repeated if you toss out a
later step in the process. Everything else will allow you to re-do just
that one step you tossed out.
Below is a list of the various types of actions you'll need to perform.
In the next section is the full list of recipes per restaurant.
Drag it to the oven or Dough Boy. It will always cook perfectly, and can
be left in the oven till you're ready to take it out.
Drag it to the food processor. It will always cook perfectly and can be
left in the food processor till you need it.
BOIL/COOK (chili, pasta)
There are two indicators on the progress bar. The one at the top
represents how close to burning the food you are (you can reset it to
'cold' by stirring in a circle), the one at the bottom represents how
cooked the ingredient is. You don't have to get the top one into the
green area, just the bottom one.
On most boiling steps you can let it sit and come back to occasionally
stir it; giving it a quick stir is enough to reset the top 'burning'
indicator back to the beginning. On others, like chili and pasta,
the top indicator will only go down slowly as you stir. To get them
to reset all the way you have to stir them a lot.
Hold B, but move in and out in VERY LARGE motions, not short fast ones.
If it's not registering, you may need to sit closer to the screen.
Hold B and wildly wave the wiimote around.
DICE (meat, onions, tomatoes, other vegetables)
Hold B, then as quickly as you can wave the wiimote up and down.
DREDGE (meat, chile, fish)
Hold B, then rapidly twist the wiimote from side to side as if you were
twirling a doorknob.
Hold B and DO NOT LET GO! Move in the indicated directions. It seems
this motion isn't picked up very well, so this can be frustrating. I
usually delegate it to Cecil. In the recipe list, the directions to
fold are indicated (U = Up, D = Down, L = Left, R = Right)
If you trash this step, you don't have to redo any other steps in order
to retry folding it.
FRY (french fries, chicken, fish sticks, other stuff...)
Although the frying progress bar has two arrows, they both move at the
same time. You have to hold B and thrust down to drop the food into
the fryer, then hold B and thrust up to pull it out when it's done.
You can't grab it straight out of the fryer without pulling it out
Note that once you pull it out, you can leave it there till you're
ready to put it into the dish.
Hold B, then as quickly as you can wave the wiimote up and down.
GRILL/COOK (hamburger patties, vegetables, filets, eggs, pancakes)
Most grill items require cooking on two sides. In Normal mode, you'll
see two arrows on the progress bar. One is on top, the other on the
bottom. You let the item cook on one side, moving the arrow toward the
center. When it gets there, you flip it over to cook the other side.
Hold B and twist the wiimote to flip.
Some items (eggs, pancakes) cook faster than others. Pancakes are a
little tricky; the aroma lines will appear before it's really perfect.
On Hard mode, you need to give them an extra second or so after that.
LEAF (lettuce only)
Press B to grab the lettuce, then quickly wave the wiimote from side
to side while keeping it parallel to the floor. Don't let go of B!
Hold B, then as quickly as you can wave the wiimote up and down.
MASH (potatoes, on stove)
Hold B, then as quickly as you can wave the wiimote up and down.
The top indicator tells you how close to burning the food you are. The
bottom one is how close to being done you are. When the top indicator
gets close to the right, hold B and jerk upward to flip the item. This
will reset the top indicator to the far left.
Grab the ingredient when the bottom indicator is in the middle. You
don't need the top indicator to be there too.
SLICE (tomato, calamari, lamb, vegetables)
This step isn't timed. Instead, each slice should be straight down
with the Wiimote parallel to the floor (not twisted to either side).
Press B in the air above the vegetable, then press down in a series
of sharp strokes.
Each slice is given a rating, and all must be perfect for this step
to be Perfect.
SPREAD (bread, pizza)
Hold B, then try to cover as much of the bread as possible as quickly
as you can.
SPREAD (butter, before saute)
Hold B, then tilt the wiimote in different directions. Try to get the
butter to cover a lot of the pan. None of your assistants can do this
step, nor can they do the saute step after this.
Like boil, but this time there's a cover on the item. You don't have
to do anything but wait for this one to finish. It doesn't require
stirring. In addition to Aroma lines, the pot lid will make noise to
tell you it's done.
TOSS (cheese onto pizza)
Hold B, then wave the wiimote up and down quickly.
TOSS (pepperoni onto pizza)
Hold B, then press A to drop pepperoni onto pizza. Try to spread them
out evenly. This is very hard to do and unfortunately you can't unload
this task on an assistant.

- You can turn a regular order into a Chef Special by adding the right
spices at the right step. This won't earn you any extra money from the
patron BUT if you didn't already buy that special, it will now be on
your list. This can save you a bunch of money at later restaurants!
Example: If someone orders Roast Duck, you can add Garlic, Hoisin and
Orange Zest at the first 'Chop' stage and it will pop up as 'Peking Duck'.
[Tip thanks to Starrunr & Matthew Crider]
- You can use the payphone to call the Food Critic even if you've already
impressed him and gotten your fifth star. You get nothing if you win,
but neither can you lose the star he gave you.
DookieWookie - For getting me into this game and helping me verify and test
lots of stuff.
Starrunr - Submitted the trick about getting the chef specials for free!
Matthew Crider - Pointed out that the game doesn't pause when adding spices
on Hard mode, also submitted the trick about getting the chef specials
without paying for them.
