Brace yourselves - Zynga has released yet another Catering Order in Cafe World, with this newest job dealing with the upcoming Chinese New Year Holiday. Appropriately, the catering order will reward you with a Lucky Rabbit Waiter for your cafe, and is otherwise themed to match the holiday, with an avatar in a dragon costume representing the order in your Catering Business menu.
The overall catering order asks you to "help the Li family celebrate the New Year with a bang," and you'll need to cook three different dishes and collect groups of three different items in order to achieve that task. Luckily, all three of these dishes are already available to cook in your cookbook (depending on your level in the game), so you won't have to go through any sort of quest or mission set before tackling this order, like you did with the Graduation Party order that was released just a few days ago.
Meet us behind the break for a complete look at how to pass this newest catering order.
First and foremost, you'll need to start the cooking process quickly if you want to be able to finish this mission within the time allotted for the three star rating (that being five days in total). You'll need to cook White Radish Cake (a 24 hour dish) 100 times, Crackling Peking Duck (an 18 hour dish) 40 times, and Kung Pao Stir Fry (a 4-hour dish) 55 times.
As the White Radish Cake takes so long to cook, Zynga has at least given users the ability to add more than the normal amount of users to their catering crew to help out. This time around, you'll be able to bring in 15 players (in addition to yourself) to create a 16 person Catering Crew. That, along with the longer, 5 day time limit for a three star rating should help some users achieve this goal, and receive the Lucky Rabbit Waiter item at the end, but this is still an incredibly difficult mission.
This is only compacted by the fact that cooking is only the beginning of this mission's tasks, as you'll also need to collect three different items - five each of New Year Fireworks, New Year Drums, and New Year Lanterns. You can buy each individual item for 3 Cafe Cash, or you can click on the "Ask" button to send individual requests to each of your Cafe World neighbors - or at least the neighbors that you think would be most likely to help you complete this order.
If you can complete the entire order in under five days, you'll receive, as we said, the three star rating and the Lucky Waiter Rabbit item (a decorative rabbit, signifying the Year of the Rabbit in the Chinese culture), but you'll also receive 12 Catering Points, 3,150 Cafe Points, and 70,875 coins.
If you take longer than five days, but can still finish within a full week, you'll receive two stars, 8 Catering Points, 2,250 Cafe Points, and 50,625 coins, and finally, if you simply finish the mission at any point after a week has passed, you'll receive the single-star rating, 4 Catering Points, 1,350 Cafe Points, and 30,375 coins. As usual, you can repeat this order for a better score, if you choose to.
Now more than ever is a time to coordinate with your friends as to which mission you will complete next. The more people you can bring into this mission with you, the better, so make sure to cooperate with your friends to have the best chance of success (or simply purchase a lot of Cafe Cash, so you can complete these tasks instantly - the choice is yours).
