( Hu Tao's Specialty Dish's Base Dish I accidentally made this one, but it's the same thing to be honest. Just decorated differently.)
In Game Description:
Hu Tao's specialty. The round-faced ghouls seem quite cute, squeezed into a pile as they are. But if you were to fall to temptation and try but one of them, you may yet come to regret it for a long while... After all, this plate is full of top-quality, taste-bud-blasting—Actually, what on earth is this stuff, anyway?
