Compatible with the patch PC Version / Mac Version (Jan 12, 2017.)

Update Jan 21, 2017: VERSION 3. Updated for Patch 1.26.96 (aka Toddler Patch). Now all age groups can eat this food as before.
Update Nov 9, 2016: VERSION 2. Now chopsticks are animated (replaced with EA ones that came along with the patch 1.24.102.), and vegetarian safe.
Update July 15, 2016: Danish, Finnish, Swedish translation added. Japanese translation updated.


This is custom food that sims can prepare on the stove.

  • YOU NEED CUSTOM FOOD INTERACTION v1.6 or higher for the recipe to be available in game.
  • Cooking skill is not required (Lv1).
  • No ingredient required.
  • Tagged as Grains and Vegetation
  • Cooking steps and props (chopsticks and basket) are customized.
  • Available for all age groups.

  • Your game version must be at least 1.26.96 (aka Toddler Patch) for this recipe to work!
  • Made with PC Version
  • Basegame Compatible, but the dish will also show up in the restaurant menu if you have Dine Out installed.
  • Should not conflict with any other mod.
  • Safe to merge with other files.

How to use this recipe:
  1. Make sure your game version is up-to-date.
  2. Make sure you installed all the required files (both recipe and custom interaction script)
  3. Click either refrigerators or stoves in game and choose [Cook Custom Meal] pie menu.
  4. Choose the recipe you'd like to cook from the list. Please note that recipes won't appear If your sim doesn't have the required skill.

  • English, Czech, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian (all translated by myself using the strings of other custom food.); Polish (simmingstuff), Spanish (alexpilgrim), Swedish (heihu).

Now this recipe is translated by all the supported language. But still, feel free to correct any mistake and add suggestions!

English / Zaru Soba / Prepare Zaru Soba / Serve Zaru Soba

Note: [Prepare xxx] is an interaction name for making a single meal, while [Serve xxx] is an interaction name for making a group meal. These are shown in the sim's queue while they are making the food.


Known Issues:
  • Since the group meal mesh doesn't have proper geostates, the pot always look full even after sims eat up all the servings.

Polygon Counts:
  • Single meal: 477 vertices / 448 polygons
  • Group meal: 397 vertices / 538 polygons
  • Empty plate: 339 vertices / 282 polygons
  • Custom chopsticks: 64 vertices / 40 polygons
  • Custom cooking pot: Same as EA pot

  • Plasticbox for the custom interaction script and tutorial.
  • Graycurse for helping the FoodGroup improve the script.
  • Simplestudio404 (kimu412) for the wicker tray. The rest are new meshes by me.
  • Made with Sims4Studio, Blender, and Photoshop
