Genshin Impact: Alhaitham Special Dish

Genshin Impact - Alhaitham Special Dish - Ideal Circumstance - Sumeru City

“It’s difficult to eat soup-like dishes while reading,” says the 5-star Dendro character Alhaitham in Genshin Impact. At first glance, this Dendro character, whose nose is almost always buried in a book, doesn’t look like someone you’d see in the kitchen. However, like most characters in the game, he has one dish he can proudly call his own.

This brings us to the Alhaitham Special Dish called Ideal Circumstance. And while this dish is definitely not a soup-like dish, the original recipe this is based on is a stew! A stew doesn’t sound like something Alhaitam would eat while burning the midnight oil. But he can probably say that Ideal Circumstance is the “ideal circumstance” for eating a stew while reading.

A dish created through the fusion of vegetables and meat prepared in a patterned frying pan. Improvements were made to the recipe, making it taste quite different from the original dish. The words on the food mean “contemplation.” In the words of the creator: “Ideally, everyone should be capable of contemplation, but practically, it doesn’t seem very possible.”

While creating Special Dishes do not unlock any achievements, they reveal a little something about each character. Moreover, special dishes are better to use in battle than regular ones. With that said, would you try this Alhaitham Special Dish if it existed in real life?
