Papa's Taco Mia Tips and Tricks

  • There is NO PENALTY for discarding food, which isn't very realistic, but whatever, take advantage of it like so:

    • Go ahead and start one of each meat before taking the first order. If the person orders ground beef, leave the other ones cooking as your second order might order one of the other ones. If they order anything else, dump the ground beef since it takes the shortest amount of time.

    • When dealing with the final customer (who is the most picky), put two of their meat choice on the grill. Discard if you make a mistake in building.

    • In general, throw meat on the grill as much as you like, because you can always discard extra, and it might save you some time!

  • You will unlock all the upgrades long before you finish the game; I did it around rank 25 IIRC. The most useful upgrades:

    • The building score signs (only buy them as you unlock the different shells of course)

    • The gold knife and spatula

    • Waiting score items, from cheapest to more expensive

    • The doorbell

    • The extra burners

    • The meat alarms (you probably will be checking so often anyway that they aren't that useful)

    • The wearable items (you need them for achievements, but they don't recoup their purchase price, so they're for the later game)

  • Once you get up to having 8 customers, with a difficult closer customer at the end, do the first 4 customers as normal, but don't start on the 5th, 6th and 7th customer. Let the 8th customer's order cut in front of them; that will make sure he or she gets a 100 percent waiting score.

  • All customers except Jojo the food critic order the same thing every day. The day's closer customer rotates in order, starting with Robby, then Akari, and so on. Check your customer file so you know what meat the closer is going to order that day and can have it ready as soon as they order.

  • If the closer is going to be Jojo, you can't predict what he will order, so do one of each kind of meat. You'll get the hang of when you need to throw them on the grill for them to be ready when he orders; around the time the 5th customer comes out.

  • It's difficult to give tips for spreading toppings because a lot depends on your computer's speed and your mouse skills. Evenness is the key, and remember that the game will put the cup or bottle back when the correct amount is out. Each topping is different. Some toppings need to be dragged across the taco several times, others will barely make it across once. Rice is probably the most difficult to get down. Practice makes perfect. Avoid getting toppings outside the shell.

  • Don't try to do an entire customer at once; that is, don't do everything for number one, then do everything for number two, etc. You need to have several orders open, several people on the grill, etc, to be able to be efficient.

  • Organize your tickets when you are taking orders or presenting orders to customers, because you can't do anything else during that time. Organizing tickets at other times is a waste of time.

  • Don't be afraid to leave customers at the counter for a little while before taking their order. I've found I can wait as long as until the the next customer is coming in behind them and still get a 100 percent waiting score.

I really love this series and so far this is my favourite of the Papa games! It does everything right the others did but somehow it feels not as challenging as the others - in a good way! I'm getting much less flustered and making far fewer mistakes. Really fun time waster!

It'd be nice if Remnants of Skystone got a few more updates, rather than yet another time-management game...

How do you save the game? Every time I turn it off and then back on, my "saved" game is gone.

[Make sure you have allowed enough storage for Flash to save data for games.jayisgames.com. Right-click on the Flash game and choose Settings to increase the amount. If you visit JIG frequently, I recommend setting it to "unlimited". -Jay]

Can anyone help me with the building section? I can never get 100% or even 95%.
