Monster Hunter World: The Canteen Explained With Ingredient Guide

Monster Hunter World: The Canteen Explained With Ingredient Guide

Capcom’s Monster Hunter World gives players a chance to hunt down various large monsters or be more peaceful and gather materials from the multiples ecosystems and areas in the game. Hunters may be confused on the purpose of collecting Sunkissed Grass besides being awarded research points. We must grab a bite to eat, so follow me to the canteen.

The Canteen Explained

Once you have gathered all of the ingredients for the Canteen, it will have:
  • 30 types of Meat
  • 30 types of Fish
  • 30 types of Vegetables
  • 12 types of Drinks

Payment for the Canteen can be done by:

  • Paying 300 z
  • Spending 150 Research Points
  • Using a Meal Voucher (Mainly used to activate food buffs without needing fresh ingredients as it will activate all of the food buffs for whichever meal you choose.)

Eating meals gives you temporary stat boosts and skills that will help hunters out in the field. Remember to eat before every quest and expedition! The Canteen can even turn items into food with the oven roast so make sure to take advantage of this service early in the game.Players can eat meals at the following places:

  • The Canteen in Astera.
  • The mini Canteen at any field camp.

Skills

Hunters need pick 2 food items in the same food group in order to obtain a Felyne skill. Each additional 2 matching food item adds another level of skill on the list of potential skills that can be receive after eating. The activation chance for skills increase by half a star per fresh food, so to reach the max of 3 stars players need six fresh foods.

Daily Skills

These skills change after every mission, only 3 exist each time, and will be the potential Felyne Skills that will activate without food row combos. Each successful combo hunters make will replace one Daily skill with the skill from the food combination. Daily Skills will be overwritten by  food skill choices in this order: Middle, Bottom, Top.

Health

Fresh Food will increase the amount of health obtained from the meal meaning with no fresh foodhunter will not receive a health bonus. Each fresh food adds +10 health for players and +4 for Palicos maxing out at +50 for players and +20 for Palico. 5 Fresh food awards the maximum bonus, so free feel to play around with the last food item to your liking.

Stamina

+50 for eating always.

Food Bonuses

Every 2 meat raises attack, every 2 fish raises defense, and every 2 veg increases elemental resistance. Drinks do not add any bonus like these.

Gathering Canteen Foods & Drinks

Like most of Monster Hunter, the game doesn’t tell new hunters how to obtain new ingredients. Most ingredients will be obtained by naturally progressing and beating the story, completing optional quests given by certain NPCs, and by gathering materials while out in the world. Below are all the ingredients in Monster Hunter World and how to obtain them.

Key

  • Uncommon items can be found in low rank and high rank versions of the map.
  • Rare items can be found in high rank, upsurges and flourishing helps but is not needed.
  • Unique items require flourishing or upsurge and spawn in specific locations.

    Hello
    This guide is very useful, but you really should stress that every "Upsurge only" account item spawn only at ONE very specific point in the entire map, unique for each one of them. I wasted a couple of hours trying to hunt them down without knowing that.
    Cheers

  2. Zhnigo says:

    Also the conditions for some of the items should be "Flourishing" instead of "Upsurge", that’s even more confusion to deal with
