My general rule of thumb:
Are you capped acc? use meat
Are you between 80-85%acc? Use pizza
Are you below 80% acc? Use sushi

These are pretty good guidelines. Should add a qualifier that pizza + more Haste will generally beat meat + capped acc if this involves Cuch Mantle/Ace's Helm/Toreador's Ring (over Blitz)/etc. Pizza can beat sushi even if the pizza leaves the player at 90% accuracy or so though.

But yeah, aside from more complex cases, these guidelines are quite good.

As a cook, I feel the need to point out Tonosama Rice Balls (assuming you have riceball gear) or the HQ (if you don't mind spending the gil), Shogun Rice Balls.

With all three peices of riceball gear shogun balls will give 15% double attack, 150 attack and def and some misc stats. Easily the best food in the game.

I doubt that a SAM's base attack is high enough to warrant Red Curry/buns so yellow should work fine for attack food.

If you do /RNG, I'd recommend Pot-au-feu.

Sole is the obvious choice for accuracy, but if you're feeling adventurous sometime and you can find it try out some Shrimp Sushi. It gives a little store TP and triple attack. Parse to see which works best for you.

@ Ravahan

150 attack is a lot, but it does nothing (or very little) for GKT WS, so you are only buffing a 30-40% of your damage (TP phase). The DA is sexy, and would be a sizable increase in TP gain, but sadly all the gear that enhance rice balls are in slots that are ‘needed’ for decent builds. And they also lack accuracy, which is often needed (why Pizza is waxed lyrical). Although they could be viable in low haste/capped acc situations, but then again, in those situations you probably don’t care to spend that much on food, so a meat will be fine.

SAM has around 400-450 attack in standard gear, with berserk and chaos that quickly reaches 600+ which is enough to get you the full gain from Red curry, when ‘zerk is down then you might be ‘wasting’ some of the potential of Red curry though. Generally, yellow is a decent compromise as it’s a damn sight cheaper and you only lose a little in terms of stats.

With a 528 scythe you need 34 sTP to 5 hit (assuming you land 4 hits of WS).

That means you have 28 before food. The normal /sam, rajas, brutal = 21. So we have 7 sTP to find.

Aurum Body is the best choice, especially for those who don't have E.Body, but the lack of accuracy even compared to Hauby and the fact you can use pizza to 'fill the gaps' in terms of accuracy means this would only be a good idea in a situation where your easily capped.

Should look at M&P Kabobs, Attack+25%(I think) with currently no known cap on attack bonus.

for when you can eat Meats anyway

Listed as "Skewer Of M" on FFXIAH here.

Also, I don't remember if we can even get those anymore tbh, its event only
