App update: 10/08/17

It may be over a week ago now, but I thought it would be a good idea to review a rare app update on iOS for Restaurant Story.

There are two appliances, six recipes and one floor decoration awaiting discovery from the most recent goals update, and they can only be accessed by progressing through the numerous tasks. You've got 15 days to set your heading and hit the high seas or else it'll be a case of walking the plank. That means that the quest is likely to vanish on Thursday 24th August.

Here is the (incomplete) list of steps:
