A new dish at one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants is causing quite the stir online, with some Twitter users claiming that it 'looks like dog food'.
Priced at £18, the Arnold Bennett Soufflé with aged cheddar sauce has been a signature dish at the superstar chef's Savoy Grill in London, having first been added to the menu in 2003.
As The Daily Star reports, a change was very recently made to the serving, as previously a traditional smoked haddock omelette was on the menu rather than the soufflé.
A picture of the new dish was shared by Ramsey on Twitter earlier this week, and its fair to say some of his fans were less than impressed with its appearance.

He posted a video of the sauce being poured on top of the soufflé.
The 55-year-old wrote: "A Savoy Grill signature... Arnold Bennett Soufflé with aged cheddar sauce. Simply perfect!"

However, one commenter quickly compared the dish to 'mashed potato with cheese sauce', with others' comparisons being 'puke' and even 'dog food'.
Another wrote: "If that is for the dog, what are we eating?"
A third posted: "Yuck," while a different user chipped in with: "So mashed potatoes with cheese sauce... might make this for dinner tonight."
Ealier this year, the TV chef, best known for his Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares series, made headlines for the Savoy's 'extortionately' priced fish and chips.
He was slammed for charging a whopping £24.50 for fish and an extra £7 for chips at his restaurant, which is situated in Central London.
On the menu, you will find a 'cider-battered gurnard, minted peas, warm tartar sauce' and 'Koffmann's fries, bonito salt' for that extortionate sum.
The Michelin star chef posted a pic of the fish dish on his Twitter page, with it getting a fairly hostile reception by some in the replies.
One user wrote: "£25 for that fish!! Rip off, I could eat for a week for that."
A second added: "Wouldn't fill up a sparrow."
He doubled down on the criticism this week with yet another tweet – this time in honour of National Fish and Chip Day.
The tweet read: "Happy #NationalFishandChipDay !! There’s no better place to get your fish and chips fix than Bread Street Kitchen & Bar !! @GordonRamsayGRR."

While there are plenty of critical takes over the price of the 55-year-old's dishes, his various restaurants around London appear to be coping well with the catastrophic impact that Covid-19 has had on the hospitality industry.
Others were not so lucky, as earlier this year, it was revealed that fellow TV chef Jamie Oliver would be closing his chain of Italian restuarants due to financial pressures.
