Return to the Cooking Fever - Ultimate Strategy Guide

Cafe Mexicana Restaurant Strategy Overview

Welcome to Cooking Fever's Cafe Mexicana, where you will be serving up tacos, tortillas and nachos.  You'll also be offering your customers Agua Frescas, which is a light fruity beverage, as well as Churros, which is a fried dough similar to funnel cake.  As you progress through the levels, toppings such as yogurt sauce, salad toppings, cheese, and chili sauce.  Your multi-tasking skills will definitely be put to the test because in this restaurant, you can to continually click on two machines to keep them constantly running - the Nacho Make and the Meat Mincer.  An automatic Meat Mincer will be offered to you around Level 27, and is a good buy if you are having trouble passing levels or getting 3 stars.  It will only be available for a limited time (72 hours), so avoid going past Level 20 until you have saved up at least 50 gems.
