How To Get the Gourmand Trophy in Ghostwire: Tokyo

One of the weirder things about Tango Gameworks‘ spirit-hunting action game Ghostwire: Tokyo is that you can potentially come out of it knowing more about modern Japanese snack food than you ever wanted to know.

Every edible item you can find in Shibuya is a potent restorative, which will replenish some of Akito’s lost health and slightly increase his maximum HP. The first time you find any given a consumable, it’ll also give you a free dossier about its history and contents.

For finding every food item in Ghostwire, you’ll unlock the Gourmand Trophy, which is a little harder than it looks.

And yes, it was at least 50% cat hair. Its Yelp review reflects this. Thank you for asking.

You can find food throughout Shibuya in discarded takeout containers, which spawn frequently enough that you’ll never be at a loss for health, and somewhat more rarely in lootable objects like scooters‘ trunks. More reliably, every convenience store offers a dizzying assortment of grab-and-go options.

You can also find “nether-touched” versions of common items in places like monster arenas, otherworld locations, and in random locations throughout the city. These have their own separate category in your inventory and provide a limited-duration buff when eaten.

While some of the food you need for the Gourmand Trophy is randomly generated, it’s also frequent, and you’ll get most of what you need without really trying. As long as you make a habit of grabbing every abandoned takeout container you see, you’ll be fine.

If there’s something that’s holding you back, it’s almost certainly the handful of foods that are only available from nekomata vendors, which are labeled as Shop Stalls on your in-game map. When found outside a shrine, these generic vendors often sell a single item, and you have to buy at least one of each in order to get your hands on the Gourmand Trophy. If you haven’t unlocked the trophy by the time you’re at or near Ghostwire’s endgame, then you’ve likely missed a nekomata vendor somewhere in the city.

The following table lists the total number of foods available in Ghostwire, in the order in which they’re found in the in-game Consumables menu in your Database, as well as their sources.

Note that Nether versions of foods count separately from their mundane counterparts, and that you don’t actually have to eat all these foods in order to unlock Gourmand.

If you want the biggest bang for your health-restorative buck, the various foods sold by specialized nekomata vendors, such as kaarage, takoyaki, and yakisoba are clearly tops, although you won’t have a big enough health pool for it to truly matter until the late game.

You can get through most of Ghostwire just jamming whatever’s handy down your face and you’ll be fine. During boss fights or particularly difficult encounters, however, it’s worth knowing what’s best.

Conversely, the nether-touched foods that you find lying around the world, particularly in more ghostly areas, are more useful for their buffs than their healing potential. The exception is Nether Shiruko, which you should pound at every opportunity for the accelerated HP growth.
