Hello restauranteurs! Have you come down to earth since the Big Apple week? Well, it is now time to take a trip up into space, as this week is all about the abnormal and space inspired interior! And as it is soon Easter, it has some easter items mixed into it all as well, as for those that celebrate Easter the cravings for chocolate bunnies is starting to become big at this time of year!
As it is soon Easter, there is of course an Easter egg hunt going on in Restaurant City at the moment. You can find easter eggs by visiting your friends restaurants. It works like the lost-wallet function that was added a few weeks ago. So when you visit your friends restaurant, and if an egg is found you are told that via a pop-up, you can then choose to publish to your friends wall that you have found an egg for them. If your friend claims the egg and choses to post a “thank you” wall post to you, you receive 500 coins as a finders-fee! The eggs are decorative eggs that can be placed in the restaurant. There are different eggs to collect, can you find them all?
If you don´t celebrate Easter and don´t know what an Easter egg hunt is all about, you can read about it on wikipedia:
Easter eggs are specially decorated eggs given to celebrate the Easter holiday or springtime.
The egg was a symbol of the rebirth of the earth in Pagan celebrations of spring and was adopted by early Christians (…)
The oldest tradition is to use dyed or painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery such as jelly beans. These eggs are often hidden, allegedly by the Easter Bunny, for children to find on Easter morning. Otherwise, they are generally put in a basket filled with real or artificial straw to resemble a bird’s nest.
One change that I hope will be welcomed as well, is that when you post a feed from your recipe menu to ask for ingredients you can now choose up to 3 ingredients to ask for in the same wall post. This means less wall posts if you are wanting a lot of different ingredients.
The St Patrick’s day items have now been removed from the free-gift feature. Now there are new items to send as free gifts, there is now a Chocolate Bunny, Chick Figurine, Easter Spices and an Easter Egg that you can send to your friends! And the important thing about these items are that they are actually ingredients! You need them in order to learn the all-new Cute Chocolate Egg recipe! The recipe is limited by the way, and you need to learn it by 26th of April to keep it.

If you think the Cute Chocolate Egg was a crazy recipe, then I don´t know what you are going tho think about the other recipes that we have added this week! This week there are 4 limited-time dishes added! I have already written about the Cute Chocolate Egg, which expires on April 26th. The other dishes added this week are definitely out of this world! You need to check out the Moon Cheese Cake for dessert as well as the Meteor Crater Surprise which is also a dessert. And not to forget the Zero Gravity Fruit for starter, which I heard rumours about has something special in store for you if you are able to get it to level 10! Will you be the first to get the Zero Gravity Fruit to level 10 and find out what the surprise is?
|Zero Gravity Fruit (starter)||Meteor Crater Surprise (dessert)||Moon Cheese Cake (dessert)|
As these items are limited-time dishes, it means that you need to get them to at least level 1 before the time runs out, else, they will disappear from your menu. You have until the 26th of April to unlock the Zero Gravity Fruit recipe, while the Meteor Crater Surprise must be unlocked before the 12th of April while the Moon Cheese Cake can be unlocked up until the 19th of April.
If you have not unlocked the recipes (got them to at least level 1), before the time runs out, they will disappear from your menu.
There is also quite a lot of avatar items this week, many of you have requested that we do more avatar items, and this week we have listened! So you can find all kinds of crazy space inspired clothing this week to dress up your own avatar as well as uniforms for your workers!
