Games about cooking are fun. Not many of them let you cook anything. But most games have parts that are arcade, simulation, puzzle, and strategy. Most games in this genre have to do with running restaurants, making food, and serving customers. You try to keep a balance between how good the food is, how happy the customers are, and how much money you make. They can be kind of relaxing, and most of them can be played for a long time. In any case, we think the games on this list are a pretty good mix. Here are the best Android cooking games! Most of these games are fun, and they are also good for kids.
The more complicated version of Burger is Burger Shop. You get different orders and make them as quickly as you can. This game has a total of 160 levels, a “challenge” mode, a “relax” mode, 60 food items, 8 restaurants, and a “challenge” mode. The relaxing mode is nice if you just want to chill out and waste some time, and the 80 expert story levels are a surprising good challenge. Even though it won’t blow your mind, it plays pretty well.
Cafeteria Nipponica is a cooking simulation game where you run a whole cafeteria. Players run the whole restaurant, find ingredients, look up recipes, and try to make as many customers happy as possible. Kairosoft, which makes a lot of simulation games for mobile, made this one. Even though the graphics are a little old-fashioned, the game is still very good. Kairosoft also makes the great cooking game The Ramen Sensei, if you’d rather go that route. Both games are paid ones that don’t have ads or in-app purchases.
Cook, Serve, Delicious!
The cooking game Cook, Serve, Delicious! is easy and fun. Non-player characters (NPCs) come into your shop and buy things. You sell these things and get paid. The goal is to do it as fast as possible. You start with a few thousand dollars and a few food options. You can play there, get more food, and make more money. The ultimate goal is to get on an Iron Chef TV show so you can show how good you really are. The gameplay is simple, but the unlockable content and secret content make it much deeper than it looks. As of the time this article was written, the game hasn’t been updated since 2017, so it may not work on the most recent versions of Android. Try it out before the time for a refund runs out.
Cooking Mama: Let’s Cook
Cooking Mama is one of the best cooking games because you can actually cook a little bit. For example, you can use your fingers to cut an onion and saute it in a pan. You also have to grow some of the ingredients yourself. You can play minigames that have nothing to do with cooking, as well as things like weekly challenges and other events. The game is free to play, but you can make some small purchases within the app.
Good Pizza, Great Pizza
Good Pizza, Great Pizza is a book that many people like to suggest. Like most restaurant sims, it’s fun to play. People come in and place an order. You take the order, cook it up, and send it off. As they play, players make money and have to keep customers happy at the same time. The game has 100 different customers with different orders, different things to improve, and a much less stressful way of handling the mechanics than most games. It’s a free-to-play game with microtransactions, but they don’t make the game any less fun to play.
Gordon Ramsay: Chef Blast
Gordon Ramsay: The newest cooking game on the list is called “Chef Blast.” It has a lot of Gordon Ramsay in it, and the goal is to become a top chef. The game is a match-three game, in a way. But there is a part of the show where you get to cook with Ramsay. There are recipes you can try in real life, a ton of levels to play through, and there are social elements as well. As far as ways to pass the time go, it’s pretty good. It’s free to play, but the microtransactions aren’t too bad.
Hunt Cook: Catch and Serve
Hunt Cook is a mix of a game about hunting and a game about cooking. You start by tracking down your prey with the help of your trusty dog and different tools. The players then kill and sell the animals for money. This is a cool way to look at the whole genre. Most games give you a garden or some other way to get fresh vegetables, but none of them let you hunt animals for meat. The game is just as much about hunting as it is about cooking, so it’s not the most in-depth game in either category, but it works well when played together.
Rising Super Chef
Rising Super Chef is a cooking game and restaurant sim that is pretty typical. It just happens to be good in most of the ways that matter. Also, the game is huge. It has more than 1,000 levels, 200 ingredients, 700 foods, and can be played without an internet connection. In exchange, you have to deal with some weird translations, and the game gets harder and harder as you go. Because there is so much to do, you can play this one without doing much for a long time. But it is a free-to-play game with some of those problems, so be careful.
Some food games put all of their attention on the cooking part and leave the restaurant part out. That doesn’t mean, though, that they aren’t good. Take Cooking City, which is one of the best cooking games that is only about making food.
The main goal of Cooking City is to finish food combos at the right time. In a way, it’s all about being able to do more than one thing at once or managing your time well. Customers will be happy if you stay within the time limit and keep the food well-prepared. From those, you can figure out how much money you made at the end of each game day.
Even though Cooking City doesn’t have the restaurant management part of other cooking games, it’s still fun to play. On top of that, the art style is bright and colourful, which will make anyone want to eat the food it shows.
