“Sit anywhere you like. I can make whatever you want, even if it’s not on the menu!”

Genshin Impact

The Head Chef at the Wanmin Restaurant and also a waitress there, Xiangling is extremely passionate about cooking and excels at her signature hot and spicy dishes.

Though still young, Xiangling is a true master of the culinary arts with all the skills of a kitchen veteran. She enjoys a good reputation among the hearty eaters at Chihu Rock.

There’s absolutely no need to be nervous if she wants you to sample her latest creation. It will not disappoint. Promise.

The miHoYo forums offer an alternate version of the character profile:

Xiangling (voiced by Ari Ozawa)

“Never cook Silk Flower and Sweet Flower together! Turns out it’s so sweet it’ll give you toothache for three days straight…” – A hard-earned pearl of wisdom from Xiangling’s notebook.

  • Exquisite Delicacy
  • Chef de Cuisine
  • Vision: Pyro
  • Constellation: Ladle

Genshin Impact

Liyue is home to two rival culinary traditions, conveniently named the “Li” and “Yue” styles. Foodies in Liyue are staunch supporters of one style or the other, and have long been embroiled in a bitter battle to prove the superiority of their style.

In this war waged by culinary snobs, ostentation is everything, flavor gets forgotten, and nothing is a simple matter of taste. Much to the consternation of Liyue’s chefs, the Li vs. Yue debate eats up all of the region’s rare cooking ingredients in the pursuit of ever-more-pretentious dishes.

Born into a restaurateur family, Xiangling inherited her fair share of this consternation. But she also chose to inherit the Wanmin Restaurant and become one of the few to push back against the status quo.

“Good food is good food, period!” Xiangling’s mantra is an antidote to snobbery as she sets about creating her imaginative and unconventional dishes.

From a pinch of Mist Flower and a drop of Slime Condensate to a handful of unidentified flying insects and even hilichurls’ wooden clubs, Xiangling is known to be somewhat adventurous with her choice of cooking ingredients.

Naturally, her unique approach leads to the occasional disastrous dish. But Xiangling never gives up, because of what her father has always said to her: “There are many secrets to cooking; the most important of which is passion.”

Here are two GIFs of Xiangling in action:
