I pride myself on playing games well. Maybe a little too much, but if I play, I do my best. And while I try to cook most of the new dishes, I have standards that go above even my strategic nature. I don’t care how nice they are, how many Cafe Points they give, or how much money they make me, I will never serve Hot Dogs at the Crossroads Café. We’re a class joint. Only the best for my imaginary customers. So the fish and chips, and the fried eggs went untried.
These days I make 8 different dishes, and that’s it. These dishes are chosen to make my restaurant look good and get the best value in Cafe Points and Cafe Coins. I also try to do silly things like make sure I have a vegetarian dish, a kosher dish, and we can’t leave out deserts, because I have to have a little reality in my fantasy, and that’s how my café would be.
But today all that changed. Today Café World released two very classy dishes; Vegetarian Lasagna, and Seafood Paellas. I have made a descent Paella before, the saffron wiped out a couple week’s “going out” money, but it was worth it. And will be a cool addition to my café.
Laughdonor hasn’t done his analysis yet, ( http://cw.laughdonor.com/dishes?realistic ) but they look good and they’re high level, so I believe the stats will work out well. The Paella casts 1,500, makes 800 servings that sell for 7 coins each to make you 4,100. The Lasagna costs 1,400 to makes, gives you 900 servings that sell for 6 coins each making you only 4,000 per batch. If nothing else I can promise you the classiest places will be serving it. ;-)
