You might be a frequent eater of Cuisine AuntDai in Montreal. Or perhaps you just heard about the Chinese restaurant this week when its strikingly honest menu went viral.\nBut who is behind the hilarious descriptions and anecdotes that accompany each menu item? We spoke to owner Feigang Fei about his newfound fame and the decision to caption his orange beef with "This one is not THAT good. Anyway, I am not big fan of North American Chinese food and it's your call."\nEditor's Choice: A Futuristic Store Just Opened In Montreal & You Can Leave Without Paying (PHOTOS)\n\nWhat's the story behind the brutally honest comments on AuntDai's menu?\nFei told MTL Blog he began posting comments on the online menu four years ago, after noticing that some customers would order plates they didn't enjoy in the end.\n"After so many of these cases, I started focusing on the weird menu items," said Fei, explaining he added comments to unusual dishes so customers would know what to expect before trying them.\n View this post on Instagram A post shared by Victor |📍 𝙼 𝚘 𝚗 𝚝 𝚛 𝚎 𝚊 𝚕 (@randomcuisine)\nThe descriptions proved to be effective.\nFei said that when customers showed up to AuntDai, they raved about his advice and how helpful it was.\nFei went on to add descriptions to every one of AuntDai's menu items last year.\nThe comments are too good, each more comical than the last.\nHere are some examples:\n\n\nPeanut sauce (chicken, beef, shrimps or vegetables at choice): I don't know why but peanut sauce chicken is liked by a lot of customers at AuntDai. \n\n\nHouse Salad: A lot of Chinese people know this dish but I don't, maybe I am not so Chinese.\n\n\nSatay sauce beef: According to a lot of customers, this one is very popular, I still don't have chance to taste it. Looks like I should spend more time eating in my own restaurant.\n\n\nCumin beef: We used to have the beef pieces on small sticks but several customers cut their lips by it thinking it was some hard ingredient ... To avoid incidents like this, no more sticks.\n\n\nHot and sour soup: Spicy and tasty, no meat, drink slowly to avoid hiccups. \n\n\n\nWhat is it like to 'go viral'?\nThe recent spike in AuntDai love started with a tweet from Montrealer Kim Belair who wrote, "Aunt Dai is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Montreal, but the REAL treat is the menu, featuring extremely honest commentary from the owner." \nThe tweet has since racked up over 66,000 "likes." \nAunt Dai is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Montreal, but the REAL treat is the menu, featuring extremely honest commentary from the owner. pic.twitter.com/FpA1xt0GrF— Kim Belair (@BagelofDeath) January 10, 2021\n\nFei called the experience of going viral "crazy." \nWhen a German newspaper contacted him, he said he even asked for proof thinking it was spam. \n"After checking, I saw it was one of the top papers in Germany," he said. \nThe story was also picked up by other international media outlets, such as The Guardian. \n"It’s a first thing for me in my whole life," he said. \n\nWhat's next for AuntDai?\nFei said he worried for his business near the start of the pandemic. \n"The business went down a lot — maybe [by] 50, 60 percent," he said. "It was really bad, we had to let people go."\nHowever, Fei said business slowly picked up when the restaurant joined Uber Eats, SkipTheDishes, DoorDash and Foodora.\n"They take really big portion [for] the commission. I don't think we can make money, but it helps," Fei told MTL Blog.\n"Without them, we would have closed for sure."\n View this post on Instagram A post shared by KIMMY EATS (@mont_realfoodie)\nFei also thanked AuntDai's loyal customers, who he said have been integral in keeping the restaurant alive.\n"I know families who come from the West Island and Brossard to come pick up — some of them live really far," he said. \n"Those customers really helped us, otherwise I would probably have had to close in early February."\n\n View this post on Instagram A post shared by Cuisine AuntDai (戴阿姨) (@auntdai)\nPrior to the pandemic, Fei said the restaurant regularly held "exchange groups" on its second floor in the evenings, facilitating English and French tutoring for Chinese immigrants while helping Montrealers learn Chinese. \nThe restaurant also offered information sessions to new immigrants with backgrounds in specialized professional fields, aiding them in learning how to regain careers in Quebec.\n"We resume the club [after the pandemic] to help the immigrants, to improve each other," he said.\nAs for next steps for the AuntDai website and Fei's food commentary, he told MTL Blog his goal is to continue the restaurant's blog in his spare time.\n"I always like to write real stories about the hardships of running a restaurant," he said. \n"We try to be better for ourselves, we want to improve. I just want to make things right and make customers happy."
