We love food, you and I. I don’t think you’d be hanging around here, reading my endless babble about food if we didn’t share the love for it. It follows that we love restaurants. We enjoy visiting our old favorites just as much as we enjoy discovering new ones. I’m also sure that I’m not the only one among us who dreams of owning her own restaurant.
Well, I may not have the time nor resources to pursue that dream but thanks to Restaurant City on Facebook, I can at least pretend that I can. Yes, Playfish, the company that brought us Pet Society, has created another super addictive Facebook application. Restaurant City allows players to create a restaurant which they can decorate and customize to their hearts content.
If you’re wondering whether this is like Diner Dash, it’s not. It’s more like The Sims in the way your employees, friends taken from your FB contacts, need to be cared for and do what you tell them to do. After you set your employees to do their tasks, cooking or waiting on customers, you can now visit your friends restaurants to trade ingredients which you can use to upgrade your own restaurant’s menu.
Engrossing, yes. Addictive? Very. I just started playing late last week and it has already started affecting my daily schedule. It’s not unusual to hear me say, “Wait, I need to check my Facebook. I need to water my employees.”
Right now, I’ve decided on a menu and have given my storefront a facelift. I’ve worked on my restaurant layout but I’ve yet to choose the furnishings to go with the said layout. It’s all a mismatched mess currently. So, I think you’ll understand if I say bye-bye for now. I still need to shop for new tables and chairs.
