The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

The Glutton's Kitchen (食神の台所?, lit.: "Cooking God's Kitchen") is one of the caves in the Perplexing Pool. The final boss of the cave is the Giant Breadbug. In the US version of this cave, there are Poko icon.png × 1190 worth of treasures and Poko icon.png × 1270 worth of treasures in the European version.

The only hazard in this cave is electricity. As such, the only Pikmin that are strictly necessary are Yellow Pikmin. Purple Pikmin are also recommended to deal with the Spotty Bulbear and Armored Cannon Larva, and also to fight the Breadbugs with. As such, your squad might contain 30-50 Purple Pikmin, and the remainder Yellow Pikmin. White Pikmin may be useful for their carrying speed, but not entirely necessary. There is also a Queen Candypop Bud, and because of the large scale of Pikmin numbers, it is not a problem to leave room for those eight.

How to reach[edit]

Location of the cave.

Near the place where you discovered Yellow Pikmin is an electric gate, found near the river of water. Destroying it leads to the cave, found where the Pilot's Seat was in Pikmin.

Notes

Ship's dialogs

Interesting! My odor detectors are reacting... A strong scent wafts from that hole!

I am a machine, so rating scents is beyond me, but your faces tell me all I need to know.

You are both drooling... I wish, just once, I could feel what it is like to drool.

Sublevel 1[edit]

There are numerous Dwarf Bulbears here. They should be killed with Purple Pikmin. Inside the large wooden box should be another Bulbear. It too should be defeated by throwing Pikmin over the edge, allowing the player to grab the Master's Instrument. Wooden walls of a house can also be seen when GCN R.png / Wiimote Dpad leftright.png is held down.

Sublevel 2[edit]

A toy train track surrounds the Research Pod. It is possible to walk around on it, although this serves no purpose for the game's objective. There are Breadbugs on this level that will carry away treasure and defeated enemies into their dens. Cloaking Burrow-nits and Sheargrubs may also hinder the Pikmin from collecting the Massive Lid and Imperative Cookie. A Violet Candypop Bud can also appear here, but only if Purple Pikmin total is less than 20.

Pieces of chiyogami paper are also encountered on the floor. They are interactive, but like the train track, they serve no function other than to add to the scenery.

Sublevel 3[edit]

A xylophone and a small tambourine are the main decorations on this level and also serve as large obstacles. Lots of electrical wires and Anode Beetles will be in the way, so those should taken care of with Yellow Pikmin; if the player lacks these, they may use this sublevel's Golden Candypop Bud. This type of Candypop cannot be found anywhere else in the game, so maybe it would be a good idea to throw a single Pikmin into it to make the Golden Candypop Bud appear in the Piklopedia.

A Puffy Blowhog also flies around here, and it can be encountered and fought out of bounds. Breadbugs will be stealing treasures and corpses, such as the Harmonic Synthesizer and Director of Destiny, since both lie in the open.

Note that due to the way sublevel generation works, it is possible for Harmonic Synthesizer to not appear, as detailed here and here.

Sublevel 4[edit]

A few Breadbugs and a Spotty Bulbear with its young are present here. It is possible to petrify both the parent and the young Bulbears with one single bitter spray. Another good strategy is to bring just a few Purple Pikmin and find it before it picks up any Dwarf Bulbears, than petrify it and toss away. Treasures available here are the Happiness Emblem, Invigorator and White Goodness.

Sublevel 5[edit]

Dwarf Bulbears and Armored Cannon Beetle Larvae which burrow out of dirt piles can be found here. Pikmin must be thrown onto their plates/blocks in order to defeat them. The Sulking Antenna and the Boom Cone are found in this level.

Alternatively, the Cannon Beetles can be used to defeat the Dwarf Bulbears and, with skill, other Cannon Beetles by luring them with a leader.

A Violet and a Queen Candypop Bud aid the players forces here. The flowers should fall from above in one of the "dead ends", though note that due to the way the sublevel generation works, the Violet Candypop Bud may fail to appear entirely, as detailed here and here.

Sublevel 6[edit]

See also: Giant Breadbug strategy.

This sublevel, unlike the others, is always fully illuminated, making the player able to see the whole area. The Giant Breadbug is this cave's boss. Unlike most bosses, it is not accompanied by the usual boss theme, but it has its own music instead. It walks around the level with some small Breadbugs. Once defeated, the player will be able to obtain the Hideous Victual, the Meat of Champions, the Sweet Dreamer and the Dream Material. The latter treasure makes the leaders immune to electrical damage.

Chiyogami[edit]

Chiyogami paper on the second sublevel.

The second sublevel of this cave features a unique object, exclusive to the cave and sublevel: a piece of chiyogami paper. It is a brown and slightly crumbled piece of paper with an ocean wave pattern. When walked on top of, it rustles. When a Yellow Pikmin is thrown from a piece of chiyogami, it will be thrown much higher and will fall more slowly, in New Play Control! Pikmin 2 exclusively. All Pikmin types will act as if they hit an enemy when thrown.[1] This object is also special in that it is internally designed like an enemy, complete with attributes such as health and weight. However, since it can't actually be fought, such values go unused in actual gameplay.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Massive Lid and Happiness Emblem's places are switched between the US GameCube and US Wii versions of the game. This is the only known instance in the entire series where two plot-based collectibles are switched between different versions of the game, within the same region.
  • The Glutton's Kitchen is in the same location where the Pilot's Seat in Pikmin was in The Distant Spring.
