There’s a brand new restaurant in town thanks to the newly released iOS game World Chef. A beautifully designed, challenging and rewarding experience, World Chef gets all the yum you can think of and offers it to you for free. But we’re not here to praise the game – even though it deserves all praise – we’re here to talk strategy in our World Chef cheats and tips article – one that will hopefully help you get the most out of this game and help you create the best restaurant in town.
So if you want to know everything about optimizing your dishes and getting the most out of the game as fast as possible, read on to find out our World Chef tips and strategy guide!
1. Always be cooking
Things start out pretty easy with just a few possible dishes to cook, but they will slowly (but surely) start to get out of hand due to the sheer number of available dishes. This means that you should always be cooking something and you should optimize the cooking process as much as possible: start cooking the quick dishes (like the basic bread on burgers) as soon as you log in to the game and collect a few series of those before moving to the more complex dishes that require more time. Always leave the dishes that take the longest time to cook while you’re out of the game. This way, you optimize cooking and get the most out of your play time.
2. Always stock on ingredients
Even if you don’t really need them immediately, it’s best to have your stocks of ingredients as high as possible (but watch your inventory too). My recommendation would be to have at least 3 of each just waiting in case you need them.
3. Don’t be afraid to use the market!
Prices might seem a bit high in the market – and they usually are – but it doesn’t hurt to check the products on offer and purchase the more complex ones whenever they’re needed. The thing is that you can’t send your customers away and if you have a really bad order, you might have to go to the market in order to get rid of them faster. The good news is that they won’t leave or get upset either, so if you just want to prepare the food yourself, you can take your time.
Also, don’t hesitate to try and sell any excess food on the Market – or work on preparing the most difficult to make dishes and sell those on the market for a fair price. This way you can make some extra money and keep your inventory space in control.
4. Upgrade your storage
You get different items that can be used to increase your ingredient storage space, as well as the dish storage space as you play the game: cook foods and serve your customers in order to get them (they drop randomly and rarely). I personally believe that you should upgrade the Dish Storage first if there will ever be common item requirements, but whenever you meet the requirements for an upgrade – go for it.
5. Plan your moves
Early on, chaotically preparing dishes is a good recipe for success as you will easily have the dishes required by your customers. But later on you really have to plan ahead – and work on getting all the ingredients for the more complex dishes, because that’s what’s going to make you a lot of money and that’s what your customers will want. Create a steady supply of basic ingredients and dishes and always work on preparing the more difficult ones. Also, use the diamonds that you win from completing achievements to buy extra cooking slots at your main stations – the Grill would be my first choice since the guy there really seems to be unable to keep up the pace requirements-wise.
6. Take your time!
World Chef is not a game that you will “beat” soon, so take your time. Plan your moves, follow our tips and tricks and keep on playing – eventually (and slowly) you will upgrade your restaurant into a world class one. Just make sure you enjoy the ride!
