Cook, Serve, Delicious! Wiki

A shish kabob, also known as shish kebap (from the Turkish şiş kebap), is a Turkish dish consisting in skewered and grilled cubes of meat and other ingredients. In Cook, Serve, Delicious! it is considered an Exotic specialty food.


A perfect order of one star shish kabob.

It is a very difficult food to prepare, even though it has 25 recipes and 10 ingredients. The difficult part is the fact that a perfect order requires the player not to place same ingredients next to each other.

It does not require any special equipment to be prepared, but it can only be bought for two star restaurants or above. It costs $1900 and it sells for $8 each.

Boosters and detractors[]

Shish kabob has 4 boosters and 3 detractors. 2 of the boosters give an immediate buzz increase if the conditions are met (paired with other healthy food at least and having a four-star restaurant). One of the detractors also grant a negative -5% buzz but only during morning hours, and another one could potentially give another -5% if left in the menu for more than 2 consecutive days. It is therefore a great food to have on the menu for four star restaurants, providing that the player masters its tricky preparation. For two and three star restaurants, there are better options.

Surprisingly, even though they cook very fast, they do not have the Fast Cooker detractor.


Shish kabob is one of the trickiest foods to prepare. There are too many recipes to know them by heart and the player must rely on preparing it while reading the recipe. It is very similar to preparing sushi in the way that every recipe asks for 8 ingredients and all the ingredients are added immediately and visibly.

Those 8 ingredients must be placed on a skewer and then grilled. It takes 7 seconds to cook a shish kabob, and if left unattended, it burns in 8 seconds.


This cannot be a perfect shish kabob order as two pieces of chicken touch each other.

The tricky part is that in every recipe there will be at least one ingredient that needs to be added two, three or four times. Those same ingredients cannot be added next to each other for a perfect order. E.g.: The Classic Kabob recipe asks for 2 tomatoes, 1 meat, 1 chicken, 2 green peppers and 2 red peppers. valid perfect orders could be:

  1. Tomato, Meat, Tomato, Chicken, Green Pepper, Red Pepper, Green Pepper, Red Pepper.
  2. Green Pepper, Tomato, Chicken, Red Pepper, Tomato, Meat, Green Pepper, Red Pepper.
  3. Red Pepper, Meat, Green Pepper, Tomato, Chicken, Green Pepper, Tomato, Red Pepper.
  4. ...and any combination that does not have one tomato followed by another one, one green pepper followed by another one or one red pepper followed by another one.

The best way to make sure those repeated ingredients are not next to each other is to put the repeated ingredients next to each other. In the previous example, that would mean adding ingredients in this order: Tomato, Green Pepper, Red Pepper, Tomato, Green Pepper, Red Pepper (repeated ingredients), Chicken, Meat (non-repeated ingredients).

Of course this needs to be mastered in order to make the shish kabob preparation as fast as possible.
