The Best Food Recipes In Persona 5 Strikers

It’s not a road trip without Joker’s cooking. In the base game Persona 5, the protagonist Joker brewed coffee at Café Leblanc and made curry under the tutelage of his guardian Sojiro. Six months following the events of Persona 5, the Phantom Thieves hit the road in Persona 5 Strikers for their next adventure.

Of the 19 dishes that Joker can learn to cook in his kitchen, some recover more health points (HP) and skill points (SP) than others. While each dish has a specific use in combat, Joker’s kitchen is more involved than a potion-brewing mechanic dressed up as a cooking system.

10 Kushikatsu

Kushikatsu Recipe in Persona 5 Strikers

Gourmet Yusuke has an affinity for Kushikatsu, and you can learn this recipe by talking to Yusuke in Osaka on August 24. This recipe calls for one Beef, Pork, Egg, and Onion, and when Joker makes Kushikatsu for the first time, Yusuke says to Joker, “You are truly a saint among men,” and starts crying tears of joy.

The leftovers restore 40 HP to all allies in battle. At the same time, Kushikatsu applies the Matarukaja effect, which temporarily increases the attack power of all allies. Support skills, such as Matarukaja, are not as vital to victory as they were in the base game, but they are useful nonetheless.

9 Goya Chanpuru

Goya Chanpuru Recipe in Persona 5 Strikers

Futaba teaches you the recipe for Goya Chanpuru when you talk to her on August 18 after completing the Okinawa Jail. This recipe requires you to raise the Master Chef Bond skill to level two and buy the ingredients Goya, Egg, Pork, and Tofu from Sophia’s Shop.

Goya Chanpuru is another item that buffs your party. With the Masukukaja effect in place, all party members temporarily have a higher critical and auto-evade rate. Upon consumption, Goya Chanpuru also restores 40 HP to all allies, and when Joker cooks Goya Chanpuru, Sophia offers the fun fact that Ippemasan is an Okinawan phrase that means “extremely delicious.”

8 Kyoto Curry

Kyoto Curry Recipe in Persona 5 Strikers

SP is required to use Persona skills for casting spells, buffs, and debuffs. If you run out of SP, combat becomes difficult, even impossible against some bosses. Select meals like Kyoto Curry to recover SP, so you don’t have to leave the jail and come back just to fill up the SP meter.

Kyoto Curry restores a whopping 40 SP to all allies. As the name suggests, this curry is native to the city of Kyoto, and it is made from Beef, Onion, Rice, and Kamu-Nasu Eggplant. Makoto mentions that the fresh veggies used in the dish were farmed in Kyoto.

7 Master Coffee

Master Coffee, one of the last unlockable recipes, restores 50 SP to one ally, so it is the perfect recovery item when you’ve been spamming a single-party member’s SP. In the post-game, you will receive the request Trapped in the Great Tree on August 30, and completing it rewards you with the Master Coffee recipe.

When she sips the bold coffee, Futaba references its name, saying, “My, Joker, you’ve grown into a fine young man. Perhaps I can finally retire as your master and live a peaceful life in the hills…”

6 Okonomiyaki

Okonomiyaki Recipe in Persona 5 Strikers

In combat, SP use tends to take precedence over HP, but both are still important. When your health falls low, you can eat Okonomiyaki to restore 60 HP to all allies.

You can buy this recipe at the Lucky Lucky Restaurant in Osaka for ¥1,100 and make it by combining Flour, Pork, and Cabbage.

5 Osaka Sushi

Osaka Sushi Recipe in Persona 5 Strikers

Like Kyoto Curry, Osaka Sushi restores 40 SP to all allies. But unlike the curry, Osaka Sushi additionally applies the Marakukaja effect, temporarily increasing Defense and preventing attacks from being interrupted for all allies.

You can buy Osaka Sushi from Nanaya Sushi & Staples in Osaka for ¥3,500. The recipe calls for Tuna, Crab, Egg, and Rice. Upon catching a whiff of the sushi, the cat-like being Morgana salivates over “a full piece of crab.”

4 Churrasco

Churrasco Recipe in Persona 5 Strikers

Churrasco is a reward for the request “Employee Course Correction” in Osaka that you received on August 28th. Beef, Pork, Lamb Meat, and Goat Meat make this recipe, and it restores 30 HP and applies the Heat Riser effect to all allies, meaning that the dish temporarily increases your Attack, Defense, Critical Rate, and Evade Rate.

These buffs give a major advantage in combat to the whole party, and when she first tries Joker’s Churrasco, Haru remarks, “It has just the right amount of salt, and the meat is charred to perfection.”

3 Obanazi

Obanazi Recipe in Persona 5 Strikers

Obanazi is the only cooked meal that cures the party of all status ailments, as well as restores 30 HP. Whether a party member is brainwashed or frozen, a bite of Obanazi will bring them out of that detrimental state.

To unlock the recipe, you will need to complete the Obanzai Ingredients request, which becomes available on August 24. Then to cook it, you can buy the ingredients Kamo-Nasu Eggplant, Tofu, Carrot, and Miso at Sophia’s Shop. Makoto will mention that Obanazi is representative of Kyoto cuisine.

2 Master Curry

In the words of Futaba, Master Curry stays true to the original Leblanc curry but tastes like its stats are all maxed out. Along with Master Coffee, the Master Curry recipe is only attainable post-game when you receive the request “A Thief’s Special Challenge”.

The ingredients for Master Curry are Pork, Onion, Coffee Beans, and Rice, and it restores 50 SP to each party member. Master Curry is one of the best recipes because it recovers the highest amount of SP of all the dishes and benefits every ally, unlike Master Coffee which only affects one ally.

1 Crab Hot Pot

Crab Hot Pot Description in Persona 5 Strikers

Crab Hot Pot replenishes the most HP and SP combined, restoring 80 HP and 40 SP to all allies. It is the ultimate recipe to recover your party, so you can dungeon crawl for hours. Haru comments that the soup draws out the crab’s flavor, and Yusuke is rendered speechless.

The recipe for Crab Hot Pot is available for purchase relatively early on at the Crab Empire for ¥6,600 in Osaka and requires the ingredients Crab, Tofu, and Carrot.
