Look for the innkeeper and ask to borrow the kitchen to make Mona a dish

Teleport back up to the top, head northwest, down the stairs and speak to Huai’an the innkeeper and ask if you can borrow the kitchen and he’ll give you the Golden Crab recipe, head southeast, down the stairs and use the stove to cook the Golden Crab, this recipe will need 5 Bird Eggs, 5 pinches of Flour, 4 Crabs and two pinches of Salt. The Bird Eggs can be purchased from Draff in Springvale, the Flour and Crabs can be purchased from Wanmin Restaurant which is in Liyue Harbor and the Salt can be purchased from Mondstadt General Goods which is in Mondstadt.

Give the Golden Crab (Normal or Delicious) to Mona

Head back to Mona in the restaurant and give her the meal you have prepared, she’ll mention that you should go to the Stone Gate.

Continue your journey, head for the Stone Gate

Head to the Stone Gate via the Teleport and head northeast down the ramp and you’ll get a cut scene, some Merchants head over to your campand offer you a ride to Mondstadt as they are heading that way.

Some friendly merchants offer you some help.

Fend the bandits off

Mona deduces that they are not Merchants but are indeed Bandits! This will start a battle with them, Mona will be available as a Trial Character for this battle, start off with her Elemental Skill as this will taunt enemies to attack it whilst dealing Hydro damage in a small area of effect, then switch to an Electro character which will trigger the status Electro-Charged, this will cause Electro damage over time to all the enemies hit by it, follow this up with a Pyro skill to cause Overload which will do Pyro damage in an area of effect with a small explosion.

(1 of 2) Mona's Elemental Burst can suspend enemies in the air

Mona's Elemental Burst can suspend enemies in the air (left), her Elemental Skill will taunt enemies to attack it. (right)

After the first group are dealt with, a second group will appear, use Mona’s Elemental Burst which will cause all enemies caught by it to be suspended in the air then repeat the same tactic as above to finish them off.

Talk to Mona

After they have been dealt with, speak to Mona and after a short scene, the quest will complete.
