(CNN) – Feigang Fei, owner of Cuisine AuntDai in Montreal, wants to be honest with you.
Orange beef? Not very good, especially compared to the restaurant’s General Tao chicken. But Fei isn’t a big fan of North American Chinese food anyway, so, “It’s your choice.”
What about the sweet and spicy pork strips? Well, Fei has high expectations. It was one of his favorites in China.
“Since I have such high expectations on this dish, I’m not a huge fan of our version, to be honest,” he says bluntly.
Mainly, her ratings are helpful, pointing out which dishes aren’t really as spicy as they seem, which are popular, and which are her favorites.
Under a photo of Tofu Skin Salad, for example, he gives a brief history: “QianZhang is translated into thousands of layers. It’s a big sheet of tofu and it’s magical that the Chinese can prepare so many different foods using soybeans. We cut QianZhang leaves into fine julienne. This plate is very tasty and healthy and it is widely accepted. I totally recommend this one. “
Others, he writes, he hasn’t even had a chance to try.
“A lot of people want to be the best (…) and we’re just not the best. That’s a fact,” he said. “We’re just trying to be a little better every day. And that’s how I see it.”
Now, as news of Fei’s brilliant menu and commentary has gone viral, business has grown as well.
“We’re very lucky to be alive,” Fei told CBC.
