One of the new mechanics in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the ability to craft recipes using a whole slew of ingredients. The big-ticket food item in Scarlet and Violet is the sandwich, which comes in several different varieties depending on what ingredients players have. Sandwiches are primarily used to give you and your Pokemon different buffs. You’ll primarily be feeding yourself sandwiches so you can gain the three specific buffs that come with each tasty meal. If you’re looking to make a specific kind of sandwich, though, perhaps the Tower Sandwich, then you’ll need key ingredients. One of those ingredients is hamburger, which can be found relatively early on in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Hamburger is only used to create a few different types of sandwiches in Scarlet and Violet, so don’t think about eating it or feeding it to your Pokemon to get their HP back up. Hamburger is mainly used in the creation of the Tower Sandwich, Spicy-Sweet Sandwich, and Hamburger Patty Sandwich. It can also be used to make better versions of these sandwiches, which offer greater buffs.
If you’re on the hunt for any of those sandwiches and you need hamburger, then you’ve come to the right place.
Getting Hamburger in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
For starters, you cannot acquire hamburger in Paldea until you’ve defeated two Gym Leaders. Once you’ve done that, the hamburger will go on sale at the Deli Cioso ships that are located in cities across Paldea. The Deli Cisio shops are marked by specific icons on your map, so hover over the different icons in a city until you find the Deli Cisio one.
After you find the Deli Cisio icon, mark it on your map and then head on over to its location. Enter the store and talk with the NPC behind the counter to purchase items. On the shop inventory list, you will see hamburger on sale for 380 Poké Dollars, along with dozens of other ingredients.
Buy as much hamburger as you think you’ll need for the time being. Of course, you can always come back to any Deli Cisio shop to buy more if needed. You can visit the following cities to find Deli Cisio shops in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet:
- Porto Marinada
The easiest Deli Cisio shops to visit are in Artazon and Mesagoza. Artazon has a teleporter right near the shop and you’ll be spending quite a lot of time in Mesagoza anyway.
So there you have it, the key to finding hamburger in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is simply visiting Deli Cioso shops after acquiring two Gym Badges. Deli Cioso shops are also great for buying other ingredients, so don’t just look for hamburger when you’re there.
