Forget fortune cookies, this Chinese restaurant will give you a sheet mask at the end of your meal
While fortune cookies and their sweet, thick papery flavor will always hold a place in our hearts (where else will we read one-liners about our destiny?!), some restaurants have decided to forgo the traditional cookies for a more modern after dinner treat. According to an article from Allure.com, a Chinese restaurant in Canada is giving out sheet masks as opposed to the more traditional fortune cookies. Wait, what?!
We’re certainly no strangers to the many soothing skin care wonders of sheet masks, even so, this is our first time hearing about a restaurant that has embraced the popularity in such an inventive way. A user on Reddit’s Skincare Addiction board shared that the Montreal-based restaurant Chez Maxim Oriental will hand out sheet masks post-meal, and they’re good ones at that.
User Bugrug shared their picture on Reddit’s Skincare board, with the caption,
"The waiter at this Chinese restaurant gave me face masks with the bill and said my boss wanted me to have them."
The best part? The masks are actually good! The Reddit user shared,
"I spot tested and didn't feel irritation after 10 minutes, so I wore the mask.....Made my skin really nice this morning!"
For those of us who love Chinese food *and* sheet masks equally, this might warrant a field trip to Montreal.
We’re definitely not the only people in support of this business move, a happy Yelp user wrote:
"Where we were even more impressed was the service. Attentive but not pushy — not something I have experienced at most Chinese restaurants back home. I actually found myself asking, "do they think we are food bloggers or restaurant critics?" because the service was so good. At the end of the meal, we were given some of those Korean sheet face masks with our bill! Random, but provided some good entertainment for the hotel later."
