"Restaurant Diner Cheesed off by Asda Baked Camembert"

Posted on the 09 April 2018 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

From The Times:
A diner who ordered a £13 baked camembert at a restaurant was served one costing £1.15 from Asda which was still in its round supermarket box. Emma Daniels chose the sharing starter at Severnshed to eat with her partner.
It arrived on a board with bread, chutney and the cooked cheese sitting upside down inside the Asda wrapping. She went on the TripAdvisor website on Saturday and left a two-star review for the Bristol restaurant.

OK, it was a bit naff to leave it in the supermarket box, rather than prising it into a "terracotta dish", but apart from that, so what? Don't people know that when you eat in a fancy restaurant, the retail price of the food you eat is only 10% - 20% of the final price of the meal incl. VAT and tip?
Either it tasted nice or it didn't, end of. The £13 price is meaningless, they chose to pay that much.
Unless this is all a clever ASDA marketing campaign..?
