Only the beautiful!
June 4, 2018 10:46am CST
I posted a discussion about this back in 2015 when I was a member of the now defunct Bubblews site. The post was about a Korean restaurant in China which offered free meals to beautiful customers. Every day, fifty people could eat free at the restaurant - only if they were judged beautiful. Those customers who want to eat free are taken to a "beauty identification area" where their faces are scanned and a panel of judges - made up of plastic surgeons - decide who qualifies. Those who don't must pay full price for their meal. The restaurant was opened in 2015 and I am wondering if it is still in operation or has closed long ago. I also wonder about the reaction from customers who felt they were beautiful enough to eat free, but the judges thought otherwise. Would you patronise such a restaurant? and do you think the aim of the organisers was to secure more business for the plastic surgeons?

@Kandae11 hopefully it has changed its attitude - if they don't let these guys in, I'll boycott them

Research have shown that beautiful people get better service or treatment. This Korean restaurant's offer is another proof of this. But no I would not patronize this establishment. My purpose of going inside a restaurant is to satisfy my appetite and not to get my self-esteem bash in.
@Kandae11 _Maybe the promo gimmick has logic. Although there may have been disappointed patrons, how about those narcissists who won't admit to themselves the outcome of the test. They've be going back again and again until the test say otherwise. Think Trump.

I would think it would drive business down instead of up. I'm there to eat, not to be judged by someones definition of what beautiful is. And the only reason I would ever have plastic surgery would be in case of an accident or illness. So the plastic surgeons there would be wasting their time trying to convince me otherwise.
It may have been a marketing campaign. I would go to such a restaurant if it was for uglier ones so that I get free meals. LOL. Kidding as usual. lol. It may actually be to identify what people consider to be beautiful so that they can decide to hone their skills in that direction. Not sure I would patronize it, but it is interesting news for sure. :)
I will have to pay then for the beautiful people who should be better off than me. I won't patronize it as I believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is the inner beauty that counts and it takes more than a cursory look to assess - siva

Such an establishment is discriminatory in every which way. Is it then up to as the owner whether a "more beautiful" person's money has greater value then mine? For if that is so, I will gladly go and spend it at a restaurant that values its customers irrespective of their appearances or diversities.
