|First appearance||Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)|
- “My stew, I must have it back! It is a delicate truffle and anchovy bouillabaisse!”
- —Chef Shimi, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
During Chapter 6, Mario finds a group crowding Chef Shimi's kitchen. Upon joining the discussion, Mario discovers that Chef Shimi's Galley Pot has been stolen. A detective on the train, Pennington, soon accuses Mario of the theft, which he denies. Pennington challenges Mario to find the true culprit. Mario finds a clue in a form of a trail of stains that he follows to Room 3, in which he finds Heff T. The gluttonous Toad knows what Mario was about to accuse him of and nervously tells him not to look in his cabinet. Inside, Mario finds the Galley Pot under several food magazines. Though Heff T. is the culprit, no serious punishment is taken upon him (in fact, Chef Shimi is delighted that someone thought his food is worth stealing).
Mario is then told to meet Pennington in his room, and on his way, he returns the pot to Chef Shimi, who rewards him with a Star Piece.
