    several of them.
    
    
    
    
    
    I have always been a fan of the system of food in Suikoden II.  Anyone who has
    taken the time to explore the food choices will come to realize that, in
    Suikoden II, food is significantly cheaper and more efficient than medicine. 
    In addition, the food typically included bonuses or status-changes!  It was a
    win-win proposition.
    
    Now, there's a food system, with recipes and spices, in Suikoden 3 as well. 
    Since a FAQ hadn't been made before, I decided it was time to rectify the
    situation.  Below is a list of many food items and what gets created when they
    are mixed with each spice.
    
    You will note, most recipe numbers are missing.  If you have them, or
    guaranteed locations of a recipe not on this list, please email me at
    <balezur@hotmail.com>.  You will be listed in my Thanks To section :)

    Summary Thus Far
    
    Cheapest Food
    Egg Roll, Thick Egg Roll, and Carrot Cake each sell for 150 potch
    ...but they only give 80hp!
    If any of those, go for Carrot Cake..it's x6
    
    Most Expensive Food
    Everything under chinese banquet is as expensive as you get.
    Note the insane price of Flaming Ocean SP for 10000!
    
    Bang!  (Best bang for your buck) - Most HP healed per potch spent,
    For a single use
    I hate to say it, efficiency leans heavily toward the cheapest...
    In battle that just won't do.  And since it's even worse looking at true bang,
    here's a bit better...
    
    Addendum: Thanks to Pork Bun, there's something useful in this category!
    Best Bang:
    1. Pork Bun+Nothing   - Pork Bun x9
        300p  - 100hp
    2. Pork Bun+Sugar     - Peachy Bun x9
        300p  - 100hp
    3. Pork Bun+Hot Sauce - Pizza Bun x7
        350p  - 150hp
    Yes, 100hp is very low, but the difference here is that these things are
    actually more cash-efficient (if you use them fast enough) than medicine!
    At ~3hp per potch, they're 6x more efficient than Med-D (not lookin at more
    because it's not the point)
    
    
    Most efficient at 200hp:
    1. Salted beef x6      - 900p  - 200hp
    2. ChickenCartilage x3 - 520p  - 200hp
    Here, I have to give it all to Salted Beef.  At 200hp, it's efficient...
    How does it compare to meds though?  Megamed D x4 at 800 heals 300hp...
    So far, it seems like you shouldn't use food for healing at all!!!
    
    
    Most efficient at 300hp:
    1. Shabu Shabu x4 - 1700p - 300hp
    2. HotBeefTripeStew x4 - 1800p - 300hp
    Um... Megamed D anyone?  evne Megamed C :P
    
    Most efficient at 400hp (as if we have to):
    1. Chinese Banquet x3  - 3000p - 400hp
    2. Candy House x3      - 3000p - 400hp
    Guh!  If you desperately need non-rare items that heal major HP, go for it...
    
    Most food!
    1. Royal Tot Meal x9   - 1200p - 150hp
    Tough call..this is expensive, but it might be worth it for 9 small heals!
    
    Most efficient res items...
    only 1..but needs looking at
    Flaming Ocean SP x1 - 10000 - 60% chance of recovering from KO
    whoa! 10000 potch!  And it comes in packs of 1
    AND it's only a maybe-resurrection!
    Why would we want this?  It's the only item in the game you can use to
    raise the dead.  Great to heal someone who either ran out of Jizo's or
    who doesn't have any at all... But it goes bad eventually... Yuck!
    
    
    So what's food good for?
    STATUS Effects!
    
    These foods Berserk you:
    1. IceCream+Soy Sauce - IceCreamTempura x6
         500p  - 100hp + 30% chance of berserk
    2. HashedBeef&Rice+Hot Sauce - Curry Rice x2
         1300p - 200hp + 60% chance of berserk
    3. Lunch Box+Hot Sauce - Chili Prawn Meal x4
         950p  - 170hp + 30% chance of berserk
    
    Curry Rice is nice, but only 2 each?  Tempura seems better.  You can use it
    for light healing, then be happy if it berserks you.
    
    
    These foods "status change" you:
    1. ButterSautedClams+Hot Sauce - Spicy Clam Soup x4
        450p  - 100hp + 30% chance status change
    2. TofuHotPot+Mayonaise - Dark Hot Pot x4
        2000p - 250hp + 30% chance status change
    Neither of these are so hot for efficiency.  If you can afford it, might as
    well go for the Hot Pot, as it includes better healing.
    
    These foods give "invincible" status:
    1. Lunch Box+Mayonaise - Fried-Prawn Meal x4
        950p  - 170hp + character is invincible
    2. IceCream+Mayonaise - Fried Ice Cream x6
        500p  - 100hp + 30% chance of invincible
    3. TofuHotPot+Salt - Mixed Hot Pot x3
        2200p - 250hp + 60% chance invincible
    Fried-Prawn is the best for this status, hands down.  Half-decent HP healing,
    guaranteed invincible.  It's pretty much better in almost all respects than the
    Hot Pot.
    
    These foods give "boost" status:
    (boost is stronger than invincible and always lasts exactly 3 rounds)
    1. Skewered Chicken+Hot Sauce - Karaya Chicken x5
        520p  - 150hp + 30% chance of boost
    2. Ice Cream+Hot Sauce - Grenade Ice x6
        500p  - 100hp + 30% chance of boost
    3. Full Course+Salt - Kobold's Course x7
        2300p - 280hp + 60% chance of boost
    Kobold's Course is the best for this, hands down.  It's a little pricy, but x7
    and decent healing... Not for the penny-pincher, of course!
    
    These foods cure various status:
    1. Tomato Soup+Nothing - Tomato Soup x6
        200p  - 70hp + cures poison
    2. Tomato Soup+Sugar - Tomato Juice x6
        200p  - 70hp + cures poison
