Character specialty foods and dishes are items that have a certain probability to appear when a character achieves a Perfect Cooking on a specific dish. They are extremely powerful consumable items in Genshin Impact, with a number of very useful effects.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 best character specialty dishes in Genshin Impact. Remember that all food buffs fall into 3 categories - offensive, defensive, and utility. For each category, only 1 food buff could be active.

1. No Tomorrow

  • Effect: Increases all party members' CRIT Rate by 20% and CRIT DMG by 20% for 300s. In Co-Op mode, this effect only applies to your own character(s). Obtain through cooking How To Get Come and Get It by using Qiqi.
  • Ingredients: Raw Meat x3, Fish x3, Rice x3, Tofu x1

No Tomorrow

Overall, Qiqi's special dish "No Tomorrow" is the most powerful food item in the game. It boosts players' damage potential exponentially, with a huge bonus on both crit dmg and crit rate.

If players are looking to get a record time for clearing hard contents, consuming this dish is pretty much required.

2. Once Upon A Time in Mondstadt

  • Effect: Increases all party members' CRIT Rate by 20% and CRIT DMG by 20% for 300s. In Co-Op Mode, this effect only applies to your own character(s). Obtain through cooking Pile 'Em Up Recipe by using Diluc.
  • Ingredients: Raw Meat x3, Potato x3, Small Lamp Grass x1, Cheese x1

Once Upon A Time in Mondstadt

Diluc's specialty dish has the same effect as Qiqi's, however, "Once Upon A Time in Mondstadt" requires much rarer ingredients. Qiqi's dish, on the other hand, has easy-to-find ones.

3. A Buoyant Breeze

  • Effect: Decreases all party members' gliding and sprinting Stamina consumption by 25% for 1800s. In Co-Op Mode, this effect only applies to your own character(s). Obtain through cooking Barbatos Ratatouille Recipe by using Venti.
  • Ingredients: Carrot x4, Potato x4, Onion x4

A Buoyant Breeze

Stamina is always a problem when players explore the map. No one wants to wait around constantly to regenerate stamina, and A Buoyant Breeze can solve that problem. Just chow down on one of these before exploring a new area to clear it out faster.

4. Stormcrest Pie

  • Effect: Increases all party members' Shield Strength by 40% and defense by 282 for 300 seconds. Obtain through cooking Moon Pie by using Eula.
  • Ingredients: Raw Meat x4, Bird Egg x4, Butter x3, Flour x2

Stormcrest Pie

Stormcrest pie is the best defensive boost food in Genshin Impact. It massively buffs all party members' shield strength and DEF. If players are running a build that scales on DEF or their shield character is not good enough, having one stormcrest pie could boost their performance to an acceptable level.

5. Teyvat Charred Egg

  • Effect: Revives a character and restores 10% of Max HP, then restores an additional 150. Obtain through cooking Teyvat Fried Egg Recipe by using Bennett.
  • Ingredients: Bird Egg x1

Teyvat Charred Egg

With the Teyvat Fried Egg being the most popular, most simple reviving item, Bennett's Teyvat Charred Egg becomes one of the best character specialty dishes to create. Usually, players just revive a character and then use characters with healing skills to boost them up.

Teyvat Charred Egg gives an extra 10% MAX HP, which makes performing this easier.
