We have prepared this guide to tell you about the best foods in Souls Hackers 2.

Soul Hackers 2 draws a lot of inspiration from the Persona series, but its unique story and some gameplay mechanics set it apart. Different foods provide different benefits for your character, so without further ado, let’s start our guide on the best foods in Souls Hacker 2.

What are foods in Soul Hackers 2?

Food in Soul Pirates

Food can be purchased from multiple locations, and the game doesn’t lag behind when it comes to food variety. Players will have a ton of choice when it comes to food types and buffs. We would consider them the best foods because they provide the best buffs in the game.

  • Negotiable
  • Humble Mushroom Rice Porridge
  • Flank of the Chakras
  • Philanthropist Shoyu Ramen
  • Boscaiola review
  • Soft Taiyaki
  • Placebo drink
  • Admiration City Plate


As the name suggests, Negoti-ale’s buff effect reduces the level required to negotiate with demons and generally makes negotiation easier.

Players can get Negoti-ale from the vending machine in Karakucho.

Humble Mushroom Rice Porridge

The Humble Mushroom Rice Porridge’s buff effect allows players to heal themselves while exploring dungeons. This buff is extremely useful because you never know when you might run into a tough enemy and end up losing a ton of health.

Players can get the Humble Mushroom Rice Porridge at the Heidrun Bar in Shinsado.

Flank of the Chakras

This buff is quite similar to the Humble Mushroom Rice Porridge, except the Chakra Flan will restore MP instead of health while exploring dungeons. Nonetheless, it deserves to be called one of the best foods in Soul Hackers 2 because more MP is never a bad thing. This allows players to use their magic more frequently.

Players can obtain the Chakra Flan from the Breaking Mart in Karakucho.

Philanthropist Shoyu Ramen

Unlike the Humble Mushroom Rice Porridge which heals the player while exploring dungeons, the Philanthropic Shoyu Ramen can enhance your allies’ healing abilities.

This means that your support characters will be able to restore even more of your health while having the same FP consumption as before. Use these two buffs together and you end up with an abundance of health.

Players can obtain Philanthropist Shoyu Ramen from Karakucho’s food cart.

Bascaiola review

The Critical Bascaiola increases your party’s chance of landing a critical hit which you can use to perform a high damage attack later in battle.

Players can obtain Critical Bascaiola from the Karakucho Pizzeria.

Soft Taiyaki

Chewy Taiyaki’s buff effects extend the effects of your card skills. This is extremely useful when exploring Souls Hackers 2 dungeons.

Players can obtain the Chewy Taiyaki from the Breaking Mart in Karakucho.

Placebo drink

After using the Placebo Drink, players will find more loot when exploring dungeons, and their allies will also heal them more often. Be sure to use this item whenever you explore dungeons to gather loot.

Players can get the placebo drink from the vending machine in Karakucho.

Admiration City Plate

We recommend using the Admiration City Plat before fighting a tough boss as it increases the party’s max MP, allowing you to use your magic skills more often. Pair it with Chakra Flan and you have a deadly combo.

Players can obtain the Adiraion City Plate at Bar Heidrun in Shinsado.

How to Activate Buffs in Soul Hackers 2

Safe house menu

Players will only have access to food after defeating the tutorial boss named RS After defeating the tutorial boss, return to the shelter and players will have the option to buy and consume food from the menu of the refuge.

One thing to remember is if you leave your refuge and go to the outside world. The buffs granted by the food you have consumed in the hideout will be activated, and they will remain activated as long as you are in the Overworld. Once you leave the Overworld, your buffs will also disappear.

Another thing to note is the face icon at the top of the screen when choosing food from the stash. This icon will represent how much your character will enjoy food. Better buffs will be activated based on the satisfaction of the face icon.
