Pearl Diver Launches WeChat

Thursday, May 12, 2016

Exciting news is happening at Toronto’s Pearl Diver Restaurant located at 100 Adelaide Street East in Toronto.  On April 2nd, 2016, Pearl Diver launched, WeChat, the newest dimension in social media apps.  WeChat is already the second-most popular social media platform in China and is already being used at the 5 Pearl Diver locations based in China.  Now that this exciting WhatsApp-Facebook-Twitter-Instagram hybrid has graced North America’s Pearl Diver location, the restaurant has implemented some amazing loyalty program rewards for customers who engage in the app. 

With 600 million users, WeChat is one of the largest apps in China and users can do just about anything, including play games, send money to people, make video calls, order food, read the news, book a doctor appointment, and more. It's basically China's version of Facebook. Although WeChat is predominately popular in China, there are about 70 million non-Chinese users making this app a global sensation.

To take part in Pearl Diver’s WeChat Loyal Rewards Program, all you have to do is download the App which is available for Apple and Android. Once you've registered, add PDTORONTO to start racking up discounts and points.  Right off the bat you can receive 10% off your bill by sharing a 'moment' while dining at Pearl Diver. You will also gain 1 point for every pre-tax dollar spent at Pearl Diver.  The reward entry level begins once 2000 points are accumulated annually and includes a $100 gift certificate.  Points can also be transferred to friends for a fee, and top out at 30,000 points, at which the rewards include a $500 gift certificate, a tea set and a six day trip to Shanghai and Beijing (more details here)

Along with discovering the exciting new WeChat app, I also discovered some of the incredible food that Pearl Diver has to offer. This homely little space offers a wonderful ambiance, making it a favourite local spot for those who live or work in the area.

The Chef's at Pearl Diver are experts in turning simple dishes into creative and flavourful masterpieces.  The experimental flavours and ingredients used in the pork and trout dishes were absolutely amazing. They use only the freshest ingredient which was especially evident in the perfectly seared diver scallops.  The desserts were a huge hit as well, perfectly balanced flavours and not overly sweet.  The tasting menu I had was just a tease of the vast dishes available at Pearl Diver. I can't wait to go back and explore many of the other options that have rave reviews; I've heard the burger is one of the best in the city!
