In the mountains of Liyue, you’ll come across an NPC by the name of Mr. Zhu. He has a side quest for us to complete called Old Tastes Die Hard. The objective is to recreate one of Mr. Zhu’s favorite dishes. Finding the recipe is not exactly clear, though, so we wanted to throw together this guide. Here’s how to complete Old Tastes Die Hard in Genshin Impact.
In case you are looking for this quest for the Adventure Rank XP, here’s where you need to be:
How to complete Old Tastes Die Hard in Genshin Impact
Mr. Zhu says he wants a dish known as Sweet Mistress, but it does not seem to exist when browsing your inventory and recipes. The recipe he wants is called Sweet Madame, and you likely already know how to cook it. Better yet, you probably have a few in your inventory already, unless you’re feeding your characters a lot of food.
Speak with Mr. Zhu and hand over the Sweet Madame. Talk to him again after giving him the meal and you will complete the quest. As a reward, Mr. Zhu will give you a Recipe: Zhongyuan Chop Suey.
Zhongyuan Chop Suey decreases your Stamina depletion by 15-25% for 900 seconds. It’s a great food buff to pop if you’re exploring the world and tend to run out of stamina quickly. Couple it with the dual Anemo Elemental Resonance and you’ll never need to rest for Stamina again.
