   Chefville, one of the latest games from Zynga, is a game where you get to build your dream restaurant. There is a big difference between Cafeworld and Chefville. One big difference, is that you use ingredients to create your dishes, and you can gather them by using energy on their respective items, such as tomato vines, milk trucks, gathering wild onions, mushrooms, and so forth. Also, this game gives you a generous amount of energy, unlike other games where energy consumption is very strict. You start off with 25 Energy, which is more than enough just starting out.

  You have multiple dishes to create, by using salad bars, brick ovens, grills, and so forth, but you need all of the available ingredients first in order to create them.  Some dishes require additional creations built using mixers and toasters, such as creating croutons, dough, pita chips and more beforehand, which really add to the atmosphere of creating said dishes. The game also will give the real recipe so you can create your own dishes in real life, which is a really nice touch.

  Visiting other players on your friend list and helping them out will net you additional resources, and if you are a regular visitor (3 visits or more), you will receive pepper, which is definitely needed for a lot of dishes. Sometimes when eating your visitors dishes or helping out, you will get a chance to receive an ingredient for use in your store, which can help if you are running low. Helping out other players actually feels like you are being rewarded for assisting, rather than just getting useless items in other games.

  Some of the structures you build in the game, like the salad bar, will need players helping you in order to have them successfully created, which you will need quite a few players in this game in order to keep advancing the quests and the structures needed for said quests, or other ingredients. Like almost all Zynga games, you will need other people playing this game, which can be rather troublesome depending on others to help out, unless you want to spend real money to advance, which I don't recommend, as almost everything can be got with Chefville players.

  Overall I find this game to be a fun diversion and recommended to people who love cooking and want to get real recipes while playing, all the while building your dream restaurant. Generous energy meter, real recipes as a bonus, visiting others is worth it, and much more make this game a really good game for those who want something different other than CafeWorld.
