The Sauce Station
- Place and Finish the Chinese Sauce Station
- Have a Black Bean Crate
- Craft 3 Black Bean Sauce
The Chinese Sauce Station is only unlocked after you finish the first quest in the Chinese New Year quest line. From there, it can be purchased for 600 coins in the store, and it must be unwrapped using three energy. To build the Chinese Sauce Station, you'll need to collect four Ancient Chinese Coins, four Golden Chinese Baskets, four Chinese Wishing Trees, and four Red Table Covers. The Ancient Chinese Coins and Golden Chinese Baskets are earned by posting general news items to your wall, while the other two items are earned by sending out individual requests to your neighbors.
When you finish the Chinese Sauce Station, you still won't be able to create any Black Bean Sauce without first having a way to earn Black Beans in your restaurant. After you finish the first Chinese New Year quest, you'll also unlock the Black Bean Crate in the store, and it's available to purchase for 200 coins. It requires six Bean Boxes to build, with all six coming from a general news request posted to your feed.
When you finally finish this quest, you'll receive two Duck, two Black Beans, and 10 XP.The Wisdom of Wok
- Have 8 Wok Advice
- Earn 1 Mastery Star on Chinese Hot Pot
- Serve 1 Garden Salad
The Wok Advice can be earned by asking your friends to send it to you, while the Chinese Hot Pot is the second dish in the Chinese New Year Wok. It requires three Beef, two Romaine Lettuce and one Black Bean Sauce to create over a one hour period of time. Its first star of mastery is earned after serving the dish four times. Luckily, you can work on the Garden Salad task at the same time, since this dish is cooked over on the Salad Station using four Mixed Greens and two Ranch Dressing. It takes 12 hours to create. After you finish this quest, you'll receive two Chicken, 20 XP, and 30 coins.
- Serve 2 Peking Duck
- Craft 5 Tomato Sauce
- Cook 3 Chinese Hot Pot
The Chinese Hot Pot is required for other quests in this Chinese New Year event, so hopefully, you'll start this quest at the same time and will be able to cook this dish once for progress in multiple quests, saving you time and ingredients. Either way, the Peking Duck is a 12-hour dish inside the Chinese New Year Wok, and it requires four Duck, two Onions, and two Black Bean Sauces to create. Finally, the Tomato Sauce can be crafted on a Mixer using five Tomatoes and four Onions per batch. This sauce takes five minutes to create, and hopefully you'll be able to create multiple sauces at the same time if you have more than one Mixer in your restaurant. For finishing this final quest in the "Sauce for Celebration" quest line, you'll receive a Panda Doll decoration, two Black Bean Sauces and 30 XP.
This Chinese New Year event will apparently expand even more in the future, but for now, you've got eight days to finish these quests in your restaurant. Good luck!
