CityVille celebrates diversity with International Food Festival items, a Hacienda and more

Along with the recently released International Food Festival Goals in CityVille, we've also seen a release of themed decorations, the celebrate diversity and different countries. You'll receive one of these items - the Fruit Stand - as a quest reward, while the other eight items are available to purchase in the store.

For those that like adding one of every business to their town, you'll be able to purchase three: a Greek Restaurant, Indian Restaurant and Thai Restaurant. All of these businesses come with the same stats. They cost 2,500 coins to build, require 75 Goods to open and operate and will offer you 330 coins in profit each time they run out of stock.

To decorate these three buildings, you can purchase matching flags: a Greek Flag, Indian Flag, and Thai Flag are now available to purchase for 200 coins each. Each flag offers a 1% bonus to the payout of nearby buildings. Remember though - even if you don't want to build these ethnic food joints, these trees would look great outside City Hall, or any other government-esque building you have in your city, if you're going for a realistic appearance.

Meet us behind the break for a look at the other items that are available.

In addition to these restaurants and flags, you'll also be able to purchase two decorations: a Duck Pond costs 15 City Cash but offers a 14% bonus to surrounding buildings, while an Umbrella Table will give your citizens a place to eat all of these yummy new foods. You can purchase a single table for 500 coins (it offers a 4% bonus payout), or you can even stock up if you'd like to create a large outdoor dining area in the middle of a park or shopping center in your town.

But that's not all! Three other items have been added to the game recently, and come in the form a new item for your City Zoo, a new community building and a home. The Savannah Zoo Gate costs 30 City Cash, and must be placed near your Zoo in order to give off the 3% bonus to its payout. Unfortunately, this bonus doesn't apply to other buildings. As for the two other items, a Phone Company company can be purchased for 80,000 coins. It allows for 1600 extra citizens to live in your town, and you can immediately go to work filling in those extra spaces by purchasing a Hacienda for 40 City Cash. The Hacienda adds 450 citizens by default, but can be upgraded at random to the 700 citizen mark. You'll gain 260 coins every time you collect your rent.

All of these items seem to be permanent to the game, with the exception of the Hacienda, which will be available for less than two weeks. Whether or not its limited time availability justifies its high price tag, however, will be up to you.

What do you think of these new items? Which of these three food types is your favorite? Will you build all three? What about the Hacienda? Will you spend the City Cash on this exclusive building? Let us know in the comments.
