A Devilishly Delicious Dish is a side quest in Octopath Traveler 2 that’s given to you by the Tavern Cook located in the Pub in New Delsta, Brightlands. Business hasn’t been good for the Tavern Cook, so he’s looking for a new way to attract more clientele—by cooking up a Delsta Devil.

    Where to Find the Delsta Devil

    The Sunken Maw location.

    The Delsta Devil lives in the Sunken Maw, a cave located east of New Delsta. To get there, leave New Delsta and go down the dock to hop in your canoe. Ride the river down through the Eastern new Delsta Highroad to the Western Clockbank Highroad. Still on your canoe, head south until you reach the Sunken Maw.

    Get Special Bait

    You’re now inside the home of the Delsta Devil. However, before you can go fishing, you’ll need some bait. Lucky for you, there’s an Elderly Fishing Enthusiast that’s shacked up in a cabin at the (not so lucky for you) very end of the cavern.

    Travel through the cavern with your appropriately-leveled party. The Sunken Maw has a Danger Level of 34, so having your party around that level should be good.

    The Elderly Fishing Enthusiast is standing in front of the cabin. Use a Path Action to take the Special Bait off of his hands.

    Catch the Delsta Devil

    Now that you’ve got the Special Bait, it’s time to go fishing. Head south from the cabin, hop back on your canoa, and then head east. You’ll notice a dark shadow in the water. Get close to it and you’ll see a prompt appear that says You glimpse the form of a giant fish… Use special bait?, to which you’ll reply Yes.

    You’ll now engage in battle with the Delsta Devil. Best it in battle and you’ll catch it.

    A Devilishly Delicious Dish Rewards

    Bring the Delsta Devil back to the Tavern Cook and he’ll reward you with:

    • 5,000 Leaves
    • Master Rod
    • Chef’s Ladle

    The chef is now inspired to revise his entire menu and has the epiphany that maybe what customers really want are familiar comfort foods.
