In the newest edition of the Restaurant City Times (which is available to read inside the game) Playfish has announced this week’s item theme, “Big City Dining,” which is a nod to New York City.
While the decorative and functional items won’t hit the marketplace until later in the week, two new recipes are now available in the game’s menu that will help to get you into the spirit of the Big Apple.
The first of the two dishes, the Giant Pretzel, is a starter item that also happens to be a limited-time-only recipe. At the time of this writing, we’ve got around 27 days to accumulate the three ingredients necessary to learn the recipe: flour, butter, and water.
The second dish, the Patrami Sandwich, also comes with a limited-time availability, but here, we’ve only got 20 days to learn the recipe by collecting four ingredients: beef, coriander, garlic and bread.
Before you start panicking over the “5-star” (ie: rare) quality of these ingredients, know that Playfish has made learning the dish a lot easier by introducing two of the ingredients, the coriander and the garlic, as free gifts that are now available to send to friends. The coriander and the garlic replace the banana and the mango that were made available previously, but the pineapple and coconut are still available for those who are trying to unlock the Hawaiian Pizza dish from last week’s theme.
While you wait for the rest of the Big City Dining items to be released, head over to the game’s page and see if you can learn or even master these recipes. Good luck!
