As the very first game in the series, Delicious establishes all of the mechanics that the series would become known for. In the game, you play as Emily as she attempts to establish her reputation as one of the best chefs in the world. You make plenty of dishes for hungry, demanding customers, so you’ve got to manage your time efficiently to keep everyone happy.

There are seven restaurants in Delicious that you can manage, each with its own difficulty and aesthetic. This makes playing the game a unique experience, even when the gameplay seems to be repetitive.

Despite being almost 20 years old, the gameplay of modern Delicious games still retains much from the original. It’s impressive that these foundations were so solid right from the beginning.
