Twitter Left Unimpressed By Gordon Ramsay's £18.50 Takeaway Fish And Chips
| Last updated
Ramsay posted a video of his take on the British staple, which is available at his eponymous restaurant at London House in Battersea.
Tagging his restaurant empire, Ramsay tweeted: "You can't beat a London House classic.... and this one's to go!!"
Taken from the restaurant's takeaway menu, the fish and chips are a little pricier than you're probably used to spending on the seafront, coming in at a slightly eye-watering £18.50.
The video shows a chef battering a fillet of fish and whacking it into a fryer alongside some chips - which are then seasoned with salt and boxed up in a takeaway carton.
Mushy peas and tartare sauce are tucked in next to the chips (along with what looks like gravy or curry sauce), before being topped off with the fried fish and a halved lemon inside a piece of muslin.
It all looks tasty enough, but many Twitter users seem to feel a bit miffed about how much you get for your money.
One commented: "Need a few more chips in there. How much you charging for that? That would get sent straight back."
A second follower wrote: "£18.50?? I mean if it came with 8 or 9 chips I'd think about [it] but 7 is taking the p***."
Another joked: "Where's the rest of the chips? I've seen more chips in a seagull's mouth!!!"
A fourth added: "Fish batter doesn't even look good, stingy af with the chips and mushy peas and all - bet it costs 10x that of the local chippy and isn't even half as nice."
The online backlash comes just over a month after a diner savaged Ramsay's £23 steak and chips, after it was served at his restaurant at the York and Albany Hotel near Regent's Park.
Posting a review on TripAdvisor, the customer wrote: "When one masters and creates molecular cuisine the other has come up with homeopathic cuisine.
"Gordon isn't Heston but Gordon is Jesus. He multiplies the steaks.
"Give him a regular sized one portion steak in any restaurant and this is what he comes up with.
"Five slices of meat with over salted fries. £23....
"Gordon, you made a name giving advice on how to run a restaurant. Let me give you my advice. This is Covid time. Hospitality sector is in bad shape. Blatantly joking at your customers won't help your business.
"Two stars for the polite staff."
