  • The wiki offers a good tool now to find alternatives for food.
    /wiki food from inside the game and click on Filter parameters in the table of contents (or just scroll down; it's the first section). Unfortunately, you have to click on the foods to find out their TP and/or vendor prices (and each crafted food has a tool to show the cost of its components).

    For example, if you want food suitable for a power DPS build, you might click on Level 80 + Power + Precision, which offers 3 options. Choose Ferocity instead of Precision and there's just one option. There are budget foods if you choose Level 60-80.

    And yet for several specs the best food/utility cans only be acquired during limited time holiday events, and afterwards, the TP, or like the links you posted, requires ingredients that can only be purchased in LS areas with LS map currency.

    I think there is way too much cost/effort required for such a meager stat increase, especially for newer players, so while I also expect people to use food/utility in groups, I would never expect them to always use the best available.

    If the boss didn't die while I was using https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Plate_of_Orrian_Steak_Frittes I seriously doubt it was going to die had I been using https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bowl_of_Sweet_and_Spicy_Butternut_Squash_Soup instead, but my wallet sees the difference.

    I just use my food from Portable Provisioner... I'm THAT cheap.
