A few of the girls went for lunch today at Junipa's and received the most shocking service. Following lunch we ordered a big slice of red velvet cake. When it came we were all terribly disappointed, especially since its all of our favorites. It had an old strawberry ontop, icing was plain and not the usual cream cheese or sweet flavor and the cake tasted and had the texture of a sponge cake. It was bland and unappetizing.
We sent it back and said it really wasn't great and that we didn't feel it was a red velvet cake.
At the end of the meal when we realized it was still on our bill, we enquiried as to why.
The next thing an irate female chef came marching out with an entourage, holding the squashed up cake in a takeaway box that she shoved back at me and said she is a world renowned chef and she refuses to take it off the bill as this is red velvet cake! Well if it is it's the worst I have ever tasted.
We were all shocked, we paid the R27 for the cake and I hope it was worth every sent to lose 5 girls business going forward.
Management stood on and stared, obviously in full support of the episode.
