We will be discussing how difficult is it to level up certain dishes in Restaurant City. The purpose for this will be to pick the easier dishes, and go with them. The reason for this is that the quicker you can level up a dish, the more gourmet points you will have, and therefore be a higher level in the game. This eventually leads to more money, and unlocking more features.
There are two methods to follow when you pick your easy dish, both are very strong strategies.
Strategy 1: How popular is this dish with other players? How popular are the ingredients?
The main reason to consider this strategy is if you plan on trading with others to get ingredients. Why? Because other players will be less likely to want to trade away ingredients that they need to level up their dishes, and more likely to trade away ones they don’t.
While we could attempt to come up with a list of dishes and the popularity level of them, it would always be in error because not everyone trades; also, the dishes that your friends serve are going to be different. In order to find out what would be an easy dish to serve, follow these tips:
- Never keep the default recipes – these will undoubtedly be the most popular.
- Visit your friends that play and you want to trade with. Look at the dishes that they serve and make sure to pick the least popular ones.
- Generally if you pick items further down in the list (that you have to click further to pick) you will have a better chance at others not serving them
Strategy 2: Pick recipes that are sold often in the marketplace.
This is a difficult one, because it is hard to predict the random order in which these ingredients will be provided – so I suggest making it easier. Save up about 25,000-30,000 and keep your eyes on the marketplace for items that are “on sale,” which means that they are $3,000 or less. Then, buy 10 of them (you will need ten to make your dish level 10, aka a royal dish) and look at what dishes use these. Since most of your dishes only require 3 ingredients, you will start out already with 1/3 of the recipe ready to be mastered.
