Games from the cooking genre are a great way to pass the time, but only a few really allow you to cook. Instead, most have aspects of arcade, simulation, puzzle, and strategy. Most of the successful games in this category focus on managing restaurants, preparing meals, and serving guests. You strive to strike a balance between the quality of the meal, customer happiness, and profit margins. They may be rather peaceful, and the majority of cooking games can be played for quite some time. In any case, we believe this list has a good variety.
Here are our top 5 of the greatest cooking games on mobile that you have to try. Each entry on this list is entertaining and kids friendly.
1. Spongebob - Krusty Cook-off
The newest culinary game on the list, SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off, is a fun time featuring well-known characters. It's a standard restaurant sim, except that all of the characters are Bikini Bottom residents. You grill a variety of foods for your visitors, including the renowned Krabby Patties, and aim to make more money as you go.
There are many different decor and enhancements to select from, as well as some customizing options. It's entertaining, especially if you're a fan of SpongeBob.
2. Rising Super Chef
One of the best cooking games, Rising Super Chef, is a standard culinary and restaurant sim. It just so happens to check off the majority of the boxes for a good one too. There are over 1,000 stages, 200 ingredients, and 700 foods that you can experience even offline. In exchange, you'll have to cope with some sloppy translations, and progression becomes a grind fest as you go through the stages because there is so much to do.
This is one of those games that you can play quietly for a long time. However, it is a free-to-play game with some pitfalls, so keep that in mind.
3. Gordan Ramsay - Chef Blast
In Gordon Ramsay: Chef Blast, you attempt to become a top chef and frequently interact with Gordon Ramsay. Technically, it's a match-three game. There is, however, a segment where you get to cook alongside Ramsay.
There are real-life recipes to attempt, many levels to complete, and social factors to consider. When it comes to time killers, it's a fairly good one. It's free to play, however, there are some microtransactions.
4. Good Pizza, Great Pizza
Great Pizza, Great Pizza is a game that many people look forward to playing. It's similar to most restaurant sims. Customers come in and place orders with you. You take the order, prepare it, and ship it. Players earn in-game money by providing these services, and they must also keep track of consumer morale.
It offers 100 varied clients with different orders, numerous upgrades, and a less stressful general mechanical approach than other titles in the genre. It is mostly a free-to-play game with little paid content, but it does not distract much from the core gameplay experience.
5. Star Chef
Star Chef is a restaurant sim where you've been given a large cafeteria-style restaurant and must make it a success. With a variety of dishes, décor, and expansions, you may update and improve your restaurant as you go. It allows you to grow part of your food and even add features such as a drive-thru. It's a free-to-play game that some players find too aggressive. Other than that, it's quite fun.
