My guess is he can purchase a fifth meal at any of the inns.

What are your ideas?

Is there an official rule anywhere?

See: Erikus ability

I asked at the booth in Essen (no rules included with the promo): Eriku gets a random meal at every inn (also the first inn!) ánd he can buy a meal as well (the same as the other characters do at the 2nd - 5th inn).

I played with Eriku and I must say that it is a very powerful character the way I interpreted the explanation at the Essen booth. He gets at least 30 points without doing anything and next to that he could pay for another meal as well... I'll ask Philippe.

Yes, I thought the same thing: a character who gets 30 extra points through his ability seems unbeatable.
Please let us know what you've found out.

Eriku can look at the first Meal card of the deck and choose to buy it instead of one of the regular cards. At the first Inn, He can also look at the top card and buy it (no regular hand here of course). So He can eat one more meal than the others...
Official rules and wording will come on Funforge Website I guess...

So despite his good looks, does anyone actually play with this character if he is that overpowered?

If you see Antoine's explanation, he isn't as powerful as originally made out. Although he does give a potential extra six points due to his extra meal, that meal will eat into his cashflow and intentionally trying for the Gourmet achievement never makes sense unless you have a more sympatico character such as Satsuki.

His initial cash isn't much to talk about either and may even be reduced to 2 after the initial meal purchase, which is poor.
