MyTona’s Cooking Game for Android and iOS “Cooking Diary” has been a hit worldwide. The game starts with a prologue where you come to know that; your grandfather has retired and now, it’s up to you to manage and grow the restaurant by serving customers, completing their order in time, and upgrading the items. You hire assistants, buy new restaurants, complete the levels, and compete against other chefs for the top rank. Today, In this post, we have covered everything about the game you need to know: Cooking Diary guide and Cooking Diary cheats, tips & tricks to progress fast.

Getting Started With The Basics Concepts In Cooking Diary Tasty Hills

Before we head to the Cooking Diary cheats, tips & strategy guide part, let’s learn the basics first. There is one premium in-game currency; ruby. It is used to buy interior items, decorative items, and in upgrading the restaurants’ items such as trays, ingredients, stoves, and more. In the early stages, most of the upgrades’ cost is very low; 1-5 rubies. But as you progress or move to a new restaurant, you will need a lot of rubies. So we would recommend you to save the rubies in the early stages by ignoring the upgrades. Gold is not a problem as you can easily obtain it by helping the members of the guild, by completing the levels, and there are many more ways.

But you rarely get rubies as a reward; read our Cooking Diary cheats, tips & strategy guide below to know all the ways of obtaining rubies in the Cooking Diary Tasty Hills game.

Since it’s a time management game, you have to complete the orders within the time. Otherwise, you will lose a life. By default, you have five lives. These lives regenerate every 20 minutes.

You will unlock new items and features as you level up. For example; the guild feature unlocks after level 15. We have explained everything in the guide part below; prestige, passive income, assistant, guild, guild quests, chests, and more. Let’s check out the Cooking Diary guide and then move to our Cooking Diary cheats, tips & strategy guide.

By increasing the prestige level, you will boost the restaurant’s income. How to increase it? You can earn prestige points by upgrading the kitchen items, buying the interior items such as TV, furniture, and by installing decorative items such as pictures, walls, flooring, and more.

Save Rubies For Later Stages

In Cooking Diary game, you should spend the rubies wisely. As you progress to hard levels, you will need to upgrade the appliances. And the upgrade cost will be higher. Since it’s hard to obtain rubies, we would recommend you to save it. How? Don’t buy interior and decorative items. Don’t spend rubies for outfits and instant upgrades, boosters.

Upgrades: – You upgrade the appliances to prepare the orders fast. In the initial levels, we would recommend you to not to upgrade all the kitchen items as you can easily complete the orders within the time. But in the next stages(restaurants-cinecafe, Sakura, pizzeria), levels will be hard. And without the upgrade, you will not be able to serve customers. In short, save rubies in early stages for hard levels.

Send And Request Lives

As mentioned above, you have five lives by default. If you lose all, you will need to wait for 20 minutes for the next life. You can spend rubies(not recommended) or request lives. Connect the game with your Facebook and account and ask your friend for life. And you can also send lives to friends. At the top-left corner, near the avatar, tap the + icon next to the heart icon and send it or request.

Prepare In Advance

As you know, there is a fixed time limit and within it, you have to complete the goals. You can save your time by preparing the common dish in advance and put them on trays.

Pay Attention To The Special Customers

  1. This is not a cheat. You are explaining what we already know from playing the game for years lol. Common knowledge of the game.

  2. I am stuck on a hard level. I have no rubies or boosters. I have been completing other restaurant levels from the book to gain rubies for upgrades.

    • After a fail attempt and the game has ended…before clicking on anything to restart game. It will tell you what you’re missing in the module/dialog box. You need a combo of so many? more tips? So many drinks? So many pastries? It will tell you were you failed. Sometimes, it is impossible to get by without purchasing something. I was on my current restaurant for 2 months! I wasn’t giving in and finally I got through it. Something I don’t and spend way too much money in one month than I was expecting. Sooo…be careful. This game is addicting.

  3. I’m stuck at level 71 of Dessert Fair, I honestly tried everything, upgraded, used all boosts during the game and the beginning, this flame thing even when I do combo orders doesn’t move, idk what to do it makes me mad

  4. How can I watch videos to earn rewards? When I select the package with the question mark it pops up a tv screen but it just says loading forever. I left if on all night and it was still “loading” in the morning.

    • not sure if you have found this out but it is a glitch you have to reload the whole game it happens 75% of the time 🙁

  5. Telling me not enough customers? Why I finish boards with 30 seconds to spare no one else walks in. Is this a scam??? On the same board forever

  6. Hi there! Does anyone know hos to fill an order on Particles of Taste level 93 or so. A girl asks for what looks like 3 colorful cups? I have no idea idea what item that is. Thanks!

  7. I am completely frustrated with buon appetito level 40. It seems like every customer lets you see their very complicated orders for 1/10th of a second then good luck, because you will have to guess for the rest of the level.

    This is clearly one of those levels where they want you to pay to beat because it’s literally impossible since you have zero idea of what’s actually needed to beat the level. If anyone knows where a list of items ordered on this level I would appreciate it.

  8. There’s never any reason to spend money on a game, that’s hard earned money. There’s always a way to play the game without paying, but that’s how they get you. I have never payed a penny

    • No, I don’t pay either. If you are willing to wait you usually get all the rubies, coins, extras that you need – but you do need to be patient.

    • I rarely pay, either. Only when I get offered 100 rubies for $.99. Doesn’t happen very often but it does happen.
      I’m at level 70 in Coconut Coast but I can’t figure out how accomplish 12 full mood meters within the time allotted. Any suggestions?

  9. Seriously disappointing!!! Very hard to pass a level without paying… There’s no way to earn free rubies?! This is ridiculous. I’m trying to find a cheat code but anything seems to work… Starting to think uninstalling it. I’m frustrated. Love the game, I’ve already spent enough money on this crappy game, not spending one more dimes.

    • @DD There are many options to earn free rubies. Even if you visit the game everyday you get extra 3 rubies. If you do daily quest there are extra rubies and other rewards. Find yourself a good guild and compete for chests + extra rubies. Do achievements for rubies. There are 2 extra events every week where you can get extra rubies. So many options. Feed your pets for more reward. Upgrade your restaurant to make it easier to pass levels. I have been playing this game for a year and I still love it. I don’t know any other game where I stayed for so long.

  10. For guild quests I play loads of levels and sometimes this doesn’t affect my total score, I don’t know why it’s not working, any advice please!

    • @Emily Foster Read the description what are you supposed to do in the guild quest. Maybe it’s ”Finish levels with help from your guild” I usually finish my level and instantly check if I get the point(s).

  11. I need help with level 36. I have all the coins I just can’t seem to keep the full mood meter up. It’s bugging me. I don’t know how to keep them hoot I try my best to.

  12. Is there anything I can do to the coins I earn in other city? I already finished upgrading everything in the restaurants so I don’t know where to spend the remaining coins.

  13. I need help with level 49 at the friendly taco, I been losing alot and I don’t what else to do, I’ve upgraded my equipment and I’m still losing! I need help!!

    • The first thing I noticed about this level was that it is 30 seconds shorter than previous levels. So basically even with the various boosters you’re gonna find yourself in a position of needing to purchase the extra 30 seconds at the end. I would suggest that you go back through and do the achievements for extra rubies. There’s one perpetual achievement of winning 50 levels in a row that gives you 20 rubies. I would go back and play the easier levels and just gather up extra rubies.
