This is partially cut and pasted from Carl's Sims 4 Guide, with me adding the descriptions that I found online. Original list I used can be found here : carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=28350.0carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=28350.0. Also big thank you to SimsVIP for uploading pictures that can be found here: https://simsvip.com/sims-4-city-living-guide/#Recipes. Found additional info here: https://sims.fandom.com/wiki/Cooking_(The_Sims_4)




Many simmers (including myself) have no idea what some of the foreign dishes are that are served by the food stalls in City Living. I decided since I couldn't find a descriptive list, I'd make one!

    Thank you so much @AriaMad2 , it took me a really long time so I'm glad you like it! I was thinking of adding Selvadorada food and their descriptions too.


    Update: Today I added Spicy and Chopsticks indicators to the foods that have those traits.

    Ohh no!!! I just learned all the recipes from Jungle Adventure, I forgot about all the other food stalls, I still need all the experimental food recipes too....

    My sim is gonna be so fat!
  • Atreya33Atreya33 Posts: 1,349 Member
    Thank you for the list. Very useful. Can sims also eat them at a restaurant and learn them that way?
  • HermitgirlHermitgirl Posts: 8,130 Member
    This is great. I can't possibly remember what foods my sims eat so this will help on the ones that I've wanted to do this on.
    I wish this had been added to the notebook for our sims.

    None of the foods in the game are listed as Vegan but Vegetarian. :)

    This is great, thanks for taking the time to do this! There were a few dishes from Selvadorada I never heard of. Then one day I was watching a cooking show where the dish feijoada was prepared. It turns out it's a Brazilian stew with meat and beans as the main ingredients. One day I will have to try this dish for myself so I'll know what my sims are tasting. :smile:

    Yes, I just double checked and they are available to select these dishes in the menu editor and they will learn the recipe after eating it. Ooo think of the themed restaurants we could make! That and it would be cool to have a restaurant with all of these foods as an easy way for your sims to access these so they can learn all of them quickly.

    Omgoodness you are so right. I totally missed that, I just updated it so it says Vegetarian. There is definitely a difference, thanks for pointing this out!


    @mikamakimon
    Thanks! Yeah, I think I'm going to add Selvadorada food to this list too, because I had no idea what the feijoada was until you explained it just now. I love how the game introduces foreign cuisine because I would have never have been exposed to these otherwise (sadly enough)!

    My Sim ate some kind of curry at a food stall. Now the Sim wants to make the recipe but the refrigerator says it needs curry. Where do I get curry?
