Cafeteria Nipponica short guide

This is so far one of the Kairosoft games that required me to play many times and unlock many items. Much time was spent on the game so I thought it would be good to write a short guide on the events that happens in this game so as a player you have a bit of direction going on. Until now I'm sure I've yet to unlock all the possible events generated from clients as some of them have not given me points that are satisfactory in the game to trigger one. The way to please the customer is to cater to the type of food they like and the only hint you get when you click on them is the attribute they would like to see in the dish. 

What you can aim to do is to upgrade some dishes to fit this 5 types of clients available which is student, youth, housewives, business man, and tourist. All the different types of attribute of a dish is the key to impress the customers such as tourist will like food that is rare so pick one dish that uses an ingredient that is rare or ingredients that holds a high amount of stars, you will see the points the customer give going up. Just continue reading this post and you'll find the items or recipes that will be unlock when you go ingredient hunting. It only happens every 3 months so pick a place and make sure you have enough employees to go or else you will need 2 rounds to actually find a treasure from the area. My tip for you is the start with the 1st three spots and make sure your restaurant ranks #1 in the first two areas and then move those stores to new areas. Keep the third store at the third spot and the rest of the games continues on with ranking up the 4th and 5th area which is harder to rank up. I have also included what treasure is found in those areas.

The taste, appeal, pricing and star of a dish carries over after you have completed the first high score. The staff that you have hired in your game has a  job level, stats, job experience and skills recorded when your high score is calculated and you will get those in your new game. I hope this small guide helps and I will continue to update this post as long as I've unlocked something new in the game.

I was asked by a reader that which dishes has great value and I wanna thank that person because I have not thought of that. It is indeed useful information so that you know which dishes served would bring in more business. Below is a few of dishes that I feel is good to sell because of the stars and pricing.

  1. I'm so glad I found this guide! I just started playing over Christmas, I'm finding it very difficult to make any money to buy the ingredients. I've played Sushi Spinnery and Game Dev Story for a long time and just started to look at other Kairosoft games. Thanks for your posts!

  2. I am curious about the manager = level 5 trainee. Does the trainee become a manager after reaching level 5? Or is there something particular I'd need to do?

    1. The trainee reaching level 5 will allow them to be a manager, I think you would need to change their jobs, haven't been playing some time now, so I've quite forgotten some things.
