In the game, you own the Kamerina’s Bar, a bar where adventurers from all path would hang out at, to spend time and to share information. Life was peaceful until Gustav, the rich neighbourhood restaurant owner attempts to take over your bar. As the owner, you have to do your best to make your bar flourish — and there goes your epic adventure and discovery of new recipes to serve in your bar!
So, you will usually be exploring dungeons to hunt for ingredients, then go back to your bar to cook and explore various recipes to serve in your bar. As you serve your customers, your bar will earns experience points and get to raise in its rank. When your bar ‘rank up’, you may trigger certain storyline which gives you better recipes and so on. There are many recipes for your discovery!
One of the biggest tips that I can share is to always make Croquettes when your bar is in the lower rank, because its ingredients are the easiest to get as compared to any other dishes in the early days. By focusing your ingredients gathering on Croquettes, it allows your bar to raise its rank faster. By the time your bar reaches rank 5, you can go for Garbonara instead, as it will be a better choice then.
Another straightforward tips for you is to always, always visit your farm and plant your crops to ensure maximum income, and also eat dishes regularly to ensure your level is being keep up for smoother farming in dungeons.
