Reviews

“Along with being one of the (very unexpectedly!) funniest games I’ve played this year, the game’s disarming & charming aesthetic did not prepare me for what is undoubtedly the best WarioWare-like game I have ever played. In fact, I probably ended up spending more time with Cook, Serve, Delicious! than with almost any other game this year. The gameplay is simple in nature but blisteringly fast, resulting in a challenge that is more than enough to keep the average player interested. The game does not overstay its welcome, as it evolves in numerous ingenious ways by the time you’ve reached the end.”
The Stereogram

“It's not an easy game to excel at, but it's an easy game to get hooked on, and the challenge of building and running your own restaurant from front to back is going to captivate you for weeks on end...with depth to rival a strategy game and carefully controlled chaos ruling the action sequences, Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a rare release that encourages you to play until you master every nuance of gameplay.”
Jay Is Games

“Cook, Serve, Delicious! is fast paced, engaging, and absolutely addictive for foodies or non-foodies alike. Don’t be fooled by the cute cartoonish style because you’ll find your eyeballs popping and button mashing like mad after a few hours.”
Vivid Gamer

  • Weekly Challenges- Face off with your friends and the Steam leaderboard as you compete for the fastest times. A new challenge awaits every week!
  • Tag Team Local Multiplayer- Grab some controllers and play up to four players locally as you take turns manning the chef station in Battle Kitchen. You only have fifteen seconds to cook, and five seconds to explain to the next cook what to do first! Good luck!
  • Strike Challenges- Take on twelve brand new challenges on your own or up to four players tag team with adjustable difficulty settings. Warning: these challenges can be extremely difficult!

How long can you last? Also includes the new eSports Endurance Challenge, an event that ups the difficulty to an extreme degree!
  • Co-op Campaign- Play the campaign mode with a friend using your current save! One person is the expediter, who must give orders to the chef and send them out when they're fully cooked, and the other is the chef, unable to choose orders but must cook or do anything the expediter gives them. Tag each other to switch positions on the fly, and make your way from a zero star cafe to a five star restaurant! (co-op can be enabled or disabled at any time in the main menu of the campaign mode).

Cook, Serve, Delicious is a hardcore restaurant sim, one of the few in its genre that gives the players total control over where they want to take their restaurant.

The game centers on an old, worn down restaurant in the SherriSoda Tower, which was once the heart of the building but closed down as business (and tenants) dropped to an all time low. But with the local economy rising back up and occupancy reaching its maximum, SherriSoda Tower has decided to bring back the old Cook, Serve, Delicious restaurant, and has given you complete control to bring it back to its old five star status of world class dining.

To do that, you’ll start with a few thousand dollars and thirty foods to choose from to put on your menu, as well as a host of restaurant equipment and more. Nearly everything is unlocked from the start of the game for you to purchase; this is your restaurant, and you must figure out the best strategy to get that restaurant packed with satisfied customers. Can you prove your culinary skills?

And if that weren’t enough, you’ll also have the opportunity to be cast in the Iron Cook television show, throw parties for offices in SherriSoda Tower, read virtual mail in your SherriSoda Tower Email account which ranges from game tips to crazy spam (nearly 500 emails in all), from customers providing feedback to your restaurant to opportunities such as being able to fund projects via “ClicknStart” and other big surprises!

With hours of content and tons of secrets and unlockables, Cook, Serve, Delicious will provide a big challenge for anyone who’s ready to take their crumbling, rat infested eatery to a luxurious Platinum Star Restaurant. Good luck!

  • New Steam Features include key binding support for all foods and events, a new gameplay option called CookBets where you will receive randomized challenges each day, fifty new spam emails and options as well as improvements to UI across the board, and full Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Leaderboards with special Steam Challenges and Trading Cards support.
  • Includes the upgrade pack, "Extra Crispy Edition," that brings ten new foods to the game including Lobster, Bananas Foster, Enchiladas, Sushi and more!
  • Steam Controller, DualShock 4, Xbox 360, Wii U Pro Controller, DualShock 3 and Xbox One gamepad button mapping fully supported for compatible controllers. Rumble is also supported (for Windows only). (Note: first and third party drivers still required for full compatibility. For a full detailed list, be sure to check out the Steam thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/247020/discussions/0/598199244891051604/ )

Surprisingly exciting and addicting. A great way to practice typing as well. A bit like an old NDS game "Cooking Mama" but the pace is much faster and also more complicated.

Overall: 4 out of 5
- A decent time management game in which you serve tons of customers single handedly.

Pros:
- Learning curve is gentle. Casual gamers can just hop in.
- Yet, there is a certain strategic depth to this game. You need to figure out the best combination of food to serve at least every two days
- Great Customizability: Key mapping is customizable to your convenience for each food
- Chores give you pleasant annoyance
- You will likely lose track of time once you start playing.

Cons:
- After figuring out which foods are easier to serve than others, it starts to feel repetitive
- Not much feel of achievement when your restaurant gets promoted to higher tier

I bought this game because I was a fan of Ore-no Ryouri back on the PS1, and realized this was a spiritual successor. While they don't utilize thumbsticks in the same way and I miss not knowing what people are saying in Japanese, the controls are still quite challenging and there's enough upgrades and daily restrictions to keep it interesting.

If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding pie recipe you've come to the right place.

INGREDIENTS:

1. 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2. 1 onion, diced
3. 1 pound ground beef
4.1 pound ground pork
5. 1/2 cup Panko*
6. 2 large egg yolks
7. 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
8. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
9 .Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

FOR THE GRAVY

1. 1/4 cup unsalted butter
2. 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3. 4 cups beef broth
4. 3/4 cup sour cream
5. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
6. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

DIRECTIONS:

1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.

2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, Panko, egg yolks, allspice, nutmeg and cooked onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.

3. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

4. To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

5. Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.

6. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

*Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb and can be found in the Asian section of your local grocery store.

Doing menial tasks repeatedly over and over for hours upon hours was never more fun. It looks like a little casual title, but it is way more than that. It is excruciatingly challenging late game, requires lots of memorization and quick reflexes as well as on the fly tactical thinking.

It's much much more than it appears to be. Spent way more time playing this than I thought I would.

Best zombie... er, restaurant apocalypse sim ever.

At first glance, it looks like a charming and relaxing little casual game... but deep in it's black heart beats the war drum of frenetic madness. You, and you alone, must run this restaurant for impatient perfectionists... cooking, doing all the chores, and serving the evil legions of the damned from hell er, hungry customers... and they just keep coming! You are Earths last hope... or at least the only place to eat in the building. The only relief to be found is at closing time... but there is always tomorrow.

Can be very frustrating, and strangely addictive. No relaxation to be found here.

Worse, you can neither die nor kill anyone... truly cooking in hell. I love it, yet hate it at the same time.

Your order is up! Go, go, go!
