Gender Male & Female

The Canteen in Monster Hunter World (MHW) refers to a Location in Astera, the main hub town. The Canteen offers two services - the purchase of Meals made from in-house ingredients, and an Oven Roasting service that turns meat and ingredients from the player's inventory into snacks that can be eaten during a hunt. Meals eaten at the canteen provide temporarily bonuses to your health, stamina, and may provide food skills.


The Canteen provides hunters with the nourishment they need before departing on a hunt.
Eating a meal at the Canteen can bestow any number of useful powerups.
You can also order an Oven Roast from the Handler.
Items used for an Oven Roast will be made into food, though depending on the item there may also be a few unexpected results!

Canteen Location

The Canteen is located in:

  • Upper Astera, easily accessible using the Lift system.
  • Gathering Hub in Astera
  • Every Camp when going on a quest or expedition.


Canteen Information

  • The Canteen allows you to bestow positive Status Effects on your character. Sometimes, negative effects may occur.
  • Please see Food Skills for a complete list of possible effects.
  • The Canteen allows players to order take-out food Items to be used later when in the field.
  • Meal effects will wear off if you faint during a quest or expedition. They will also wear off once you complete, fail, or withdraw from a quest or expedition. After eating a meal you will be unable to eat again for a short period.


The Canteen sells meals that can provide bonuses to your maximum health and stamina, the maximum health of your Palico, and Food Skills. Food Skills, like Armor Skills, provide various benefits to the character. The bonuses provided by meals are temporary, and last until one of the following occurs:

  • You faint during a quest or expedition
  • You complete, fail, withdraw, or return from a quest or expedition

Some meals may provide negative effects to the player.

Meals sold by the Canteen are composed of in-house ingredients - that is, ingredients not from the player's inventory. Ingredients come in four varieties - Meat, Fish, Vegetables, and Drinks - and can be Fresh or Normal. Between quests or expeditions, the ingredients that are fresh rotate randomly. Fresh ingredients may provide higher health and stamina bonuses, and provide a higher chance for the activation of Food Skills. Players are offered the choice of pre-crafted meals, a Chef's Choice meal that automatically uses the freshest ingredients available, or can create custom meals using the ingredients available from the Canteen. While the selection of ingredients is small to begin with, players can embark on Optional Quests offered by the Feylene NPCs that run the Canteen in order to unlock new ingredients to be used in future meals.

The Canteen begins at Level 1 and is upgraded twice throughout the campaign, providing access to bigger and more complex meals.

  • Level 1 Canteen - Maximum of 2 ingredients per meal
  • Level 2 Canteen - Maximum of 4 ingredients per meal
  • Level 3 Canteen - Maximum of 6 ingredients per meal


Food Ingredients in Monster Hunter World (MHW) are Items that can be combined and altered to create meals that give various Food Skills at the Canteen.
