The Smack Down:
A customer per-ordered a Chestnut cake for a birthday party from La Villa French Restaurant in Qingdao but was sorely disappointed when the overpriced non-authentic cake was delivered. After several attempts to resolve the issue, the customer finally had enough and reported their experience of a “birthday cake gone wrong” to the Qingdao News Paper who ran the story here.
The biased, advertisement-driven, local expat tabloids have over-rated La Villa and many other western establishments in Qingdao.
