Where to tickle chef Tatsuya's palate in Yakuza 5.

Once you have given Tatsuya one restaurant lead per area, he will award you the first rank as a gourmet — which in turn allows you to boost your health above the maximum amount and gain improved stats when you eat in a restaurant.

There are three restaurants for you to take Tatsuya to in each city. Each time you take him somewhere new, he will raise that character’s gourmet rank. There are three gourmet tiers, with each one making meals even more beneficial. There’s really no reason not to do it.

Once you have given Tatsuya all the leads he needs, he hosts a TV event where reveals a new local dish inspired by the restaurants you’ve taken him to. The dish he reveals will be available at his selected restaurant from that point forward.

Below are maps of each city with Tatsuya’s location marked, the restaurants he would be interested in visiting, and which restaurant will be carrying his new local dish once you’re done. Restaurant names are also listed to make the in-game map a little easier to navigate.

Tatsuya is marked with a blue dot. Restaurants to take him to are marked with red dots. His TV events revealing his new dishes are marked with green dots.
