Video Game Food Monthly
Sometimes I play video games and there is food.
Sometimes I also cook.
So sometimes I cook video game food.
In this thread, I'll attempt to cook a video game related food item every month:
I started playing Sleeping Dogs this week, and knowing how important Pork Buns are to being a whole man, I decided to make some pork buns for thanksgiving.
This is how they turned out:
Pretty tasty! I feel the strength flowing back into my body!
I used this recipe.
Does anyone else cook, in real life? What kind of video game food is the best?
What video game food should I make next?
Haha awesome! Food and video games, the 2 best things in life!

Love this idea for a thread! I cook every meal, but I don't have an oven in my apartment. Everything I do has to be stovetop. If I cook anything VG food I'll post it up here!
Here's what I'm working on for this month's installment:
Specifically From Final Fantasy XI (and probably other games. There's a recipe in XV called "Salmon in a suit" that I suspect is the same thing). I'm using a modified recipe from Jamie Oliver. Probably cooking it on Monday.
Final Fantasy XI Salmon Croute:
A cheval salmon in a flaky pie wrapping.
I ended up making a more complicated version of this, with a layer of spinach, shallots, watercress, and creme fraiche, but here's a pretty simple Gordon Ramsay vid explaining the steps otherwise.
Food Effects: (30 minutes, All Races)

you should take a look at Odin Sphere, or other Vanillaware games, best looking food in gaming
@bard91 I dunno, I think Final Fantasy XV is just a glorified food simulator. King of the castle.
I already think I know what I'm going to make for next month's dish, but you'll just have to wait a few weeks.
I have to go buy a special dish.

@TokyoSlim I remember a friend showing me that pork bun video (maybe not the same exact video, but one of the same situation). It made me really want pork buns, as I'd never had one before due to not being a whole man. When I got a chance to try some, they were so good, and those ones you made look even better. And I'm not much of a fan of seafood, but that salmon croute looks awesome. It probably doesn't help that I haven't eaten in about 6 hours.
@Doctor-Professor Pork buns are great!

I do cook on a weekly basis, as I do bulk cooking to save time throughout the week. Can't really say what video game based food is the best. As I never thought of cooking something straight from a game. And my food budget is pretty limited, so there's not a whole lot of room for experimenting with new things to cook. Particularity making sweets and other bakery goods. Which I would like to learn someday.
A hint for the next installment of Video Game Food Monthly, this month's selection required me to purchase a much larger bowl than any other I currently own. Being delivered to my house this afternoon is a 38 oz bowl.
What could a person put in a 38oz bowl you might be asking yourself? Well... stay tuned.
@TokyoSlim My guess is...
@SabotageTheTruth lol spoiler alert.
Lol, I'm not sure this bowl is gonna be big enough. I should have gone for the 50 Oz bowl.
And here we go. It's canon that it's 4x the normal beef bowl serving, so used that as a basis for adjusting the following recipe:
And this is the final result. 2.75 lbs of beef, a whole onion, dashi, mirin, sake, soy, (i added a chopped clove of garlic), I substituted brown sugar for white, beni shoga (red pickled ginger) and a raw egg.
For reference, this bowl has 1 cup of cooked rice at the bottom, it's like 1/4 of the bowl.
@TokyoSlim I feel my Courage increasing, just looking at it.
