Persona 5 Strikers: How To Complete Cooking Papa Request

Here's how to complete the Cooking Papa mission in Persona 5 Strikers (P5S)

If you know anything about Zenkichi Hasegawa from Persona 5 Strikers he is not the best cook around. All he eats is some soba or bread from restaurants around. And according to his taste buds, the best food recipe for a well-balanced dinner is grabbing whatever meat on sale, adding to boiling water, with salt, chopped vegetables, and some sugar to taste. This sinks Morgana’s heart so much that both Joker & Morgana decides to team up with Haru to teach Zenkichi cooking so even his daughter Akane Hasegawa can enjoy a proper meal made by her dad. Thus we receive the new request “Cooking Papa”. So let’s look at how to complete the “Cooking Papa” request for Zenkichi & Akane in Persona 5 Strikers.
