Cooking Fever - Aloha Bistro Strategy Guide

Aloha Bistro Strategy Overview

The Aloha Bistro is a festive, tropical restaurant located in the Alpine Mountains; not sure why it isn't on Paradise Island.  It's definitely a fast-paced restaurant that serves Chicken, Laulau and Ice Cones.  Making the Laulau is definitely the most challenging part, and involves placing a Taro Leaf, a Butterfish and Pork on the Wrapping Board then swiping it to wrap it up.  If you have Carpal Tunnel, you may want to skip this one!  Fortunately, an Automatic Laulau Wrapper becomes available after Level 27 for around 30 gems to 60 gems.  We found this machine a necessity in order to complete higher levels.

The Chicken, Rice, Syrups and Pineapple all had a price increase of $3 per upgrade; other ingredients only had a $2 price increase.  Unless you are super good at multi-tasking, don't upgrade your wrapping board above Level 1.  Once the Automatic Laulau wrapper becomes available, you won't be using the board at all.

See the Strategy and Upgrade Tips at the bottom of this page for more insider tricks to passing levels.

  • Tiki totems, surfboards, Kahunas and many more items are coming to the Aloha Bistro!
  • Wrap a Laulau, prepare some Huli Huli chicken or some Lomi Lomi Salmon!
  • So wave a friendly shaka sign and jump into the new restaurant!

Level Guide

Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy.  

Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering.  After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items.  A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.

First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts.  There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.

Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level.  Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered.  Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.

Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.  This includes upgrade strategy recommendations.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips

  • Continually click on your Rice Cooker machine throughout the level so that it is always refilling the rice.  Keep it fully stocked at all times and click on it even when its already full.  It doesn't refill itself automatically like the Ice Shaver.
  • You will definitely need to purchase the Automatic Laulau Wrapper when it becomes available (usually after Level 27).  
  • When preparing Laulau, you can also swipe upwards to wrap it closed
  • By Level 25, upgrade your Tabletop to L3.  You will want to have a grilled pineapple for a Laulau and Huli Huli Chicken available at all times.
  • The Automatic Laulau Wrapper becomes available between level 27 and 30.  This is a "must have" item.  Avoid passing level 26 until you have 40-60 gems available.
