Best Food ESO

Welcome to my Best Food and Drink Buff Guide for ESO! Food and Drink Buffs are important for creating an effective PVE or PVP Build and often make the difference in harder content. Buffs from Drinks and Food can boost your raw stats and allow you to tackle tougher enemies. While the starter food and drinks you get as reward while leveling up your character can assist you, there are much better options you should use later in the game.

Certain Food and Drink Buffs will enhance and complement specific types of Builds, so it is good to know which one is the best for your character. For the Best Potions and Poisons in ESO, you can take a look at my ESO Best Potions Guide and ESO Best Poisons Guide.
