In Monster Hunter World, you need the canteen and above all the food or dishes for simple survival.
In the canteen, you can order food in advance and that will be ready once you back from a quest. In one point, the canteen is different from common restaurants: you have to bring your own ingredients! The meals are only orderable if you have all the funds you need in the inventory.
Before start a quest you should always visit the canteen and take your food to boost your stamina or health. Note that the effect of a meal disappears once you have fainted. Accordingly, you must visit the canteen again. Here are the pre-orders, which then give you extra health.
Upgrade Canteen and Unlock Better Dishes
At regular intervals the chef in the canteen will hire you with quests. You can tell by the yellow exclamation point above his cute little head. With each quest, you upgrade the canteen and thus the range of dishes, or expand the list of ingredients. Collect everything carefully in the environment. Also when fishing you can get some tidbits.
As you progress through the game, the canteen gets some upgrades automatically. This includes many new dishes and the drinks. In addition, the dishes with 6 instead of 3 ingredients are more complex, which in the end, of course, gives you more bonus additions.
