GameZebo: "If there is a major problem with Hot Dish 2, it's the dreadful music. Really, this has to be one of the worst loops I've heard. I had to turn it off to maintain my sanity by the second city. Gameplay-wise, you can't replay a level if you didn't do particularly well at it, and the A La Carte Mode feels a bit like an afterthought. These are criticisms that can be levelled at the first game, and it's odd that it wasn't fixed here.
In fact, that's probably the biggest issue with Hot Dish 2. It is a strong game in its own right, and definitely improves upon the first one, but feels more like a giant expansion pack than a true sequel. This said, it is a lot of fun to play and well worth downloading, but only if you didn't fill up on the original."
