Tasty Meat (alternately translated from Japanese as Delicious Meat or Enchanted Meat, also localized as Pot Roast or Spiced Meat) is a food item that appears in several Castlevania games. It is referred to as "tasty" to distinguish it from Rotten Meat or to indicate it gives more health than normal Meat. Aeon discovered that using Tasty Meat in his dishes was better for business.

Tasty Meat can occasionally be found in rare chests within Somnus Reef. It can also be found in a breakable ledge located in a vertical room full of Red Skeletons in the Castle Entrance section of Dracula's Castle.
