Hello fellow restaurateurs! We hope you enjoyed 3 weeks of Japan in Restaurant City! This week is full of festivities, so make sure to sign on to Restaurant City to view all that is in store for Mexican week!
Next Wednesday (May 5th) is Cinco de Mayo, so to get in the true Mexican spirit we’re trading in our Cherry Blossoms and Zen Gardens this week for Sombreros and Pinatas! If you’d like to learn more about Cinco de Mayo, you can read more about it on Wikipedia
Not to be confused with Mexican Independence Day, which occurs on September 16.
Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for “fifth of May” is a regional public holiday in Mexico, primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico.
The holiday commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of Mexican General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín
To start the celebrations off with a bang, I suggest checking out the new outdoor items that will be available Thursday at midnight GMT this week for all of your decorating needs! The animated Street Mariachi Band is a personal favorite. With their beautiful music, and mesmerizing dance moves, the customers will be flooding in! (Figure of speech, the outside Mariachi Band has no effect on your restaurant.)
To go all out in true Mexican style, don’t miss those final touches on the exterior of your building by using the Sombrero Roof, the Mexican Banner or the maraca shaking Cactus Jose himself!

To continue the Mexican theme inside your restaurant, you simply must have all the fixings, from the dark and luxurious Terracotta Tiles, to adding a splash of color with the new Stucco wallpaper with Chili lights. To ensure your customers get their food and beverages in a timely manner, you might consider purchasing the new Tortilla Stove, which cooks 12% faster than regular stoves, or the new Cactus Dispenser, which gets drinks out to customers 10% faster than usual. You can also hire the Mariachi Band to sing and dance in your Restaurant to make your customers more patient. Another functional item available on Thursday will be the colorful Piñata! (which will act the same way as arcades do) Don’t forget to add those important final touches by incorporating the Rustic Red Brick Pillar, Maracas Wall decor and Mexican Spice Rack into your restaurants to tie the theme together!

There are also 3 new dishes added this week! Beef Enchiladas (main), Mexican Flan (dessert) and Tostadas (starter). Yummy! Note that Mexican Flan and Tostadas will not be sticking around for long! These dishes are limited, so make sure you unlock them (get them to at least level 1) before they go away!

Last, but certainly not least (especially if you`re a bargain hunter like me!) You may notice a few “older” Mexican inspired items on sale this week. The items you can find on sale are:
- Spicy Picture (Wall decor)
- Cacti Joe (Decoration)
- Giant Cactus (Decoration)
That’s it for this week folks! We hope you enjoy Mexican week in Restaurant City!
As always, please post any feedback you may have! We love hearing what you have to say!
