Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has been mocked online after sharing his “overpriced” £19 fry up which is available to try at his Savoy Grill restaurant.
The 53-year-old chef has recently been called out by Twitter users for his latest addition to the Savoy Grill restaurant menu, the £19 fry up – which comes with an additional sausage for the price of £5.
Proud of his latest dish, Gordon Ramsay shared a shot of the breakfast onto his Instagram page and wrote: “The most amazing Full English….can’t wait for you to try it from 21st September at Savoy Grill!”
The high-end restaurant’s take on an English breakfast includes two eggs, two sausages, a few strips of bacon, one tomato and one mushroom.
The meal has been priced up at a whopping £19, making it four times more expensive than Wetherspoon’s version of a fry up.
In response to his new addition to the menu, one person wrote to Gordon: “Underwhelming. Definitely not on the amazing continuum.
“One sausage Scrap of bacon Looks like poor value to me.”
Mostly, people were left shocked after finding out that if you fancied an extra sausage, you’d have to pay an extra fiver.
Many were left disgusted by the extortionate price for a fry up, one commented: “Can’t wait for you to try it!!!!! Are the sides £5 each or is that for all of them????
“Who is mug enough to pay a fiver for one sausage??? Get a grip GR.”
It looks like the celebrity chef is not having a particularly good week, as he has also been called out for “stealing” Australian chef Mitch Orr’s signature recipes.
Two weeks ago, the Hell’s Kitchen star shared a video of himself making a Vietnamese braised pork carbonara, served up with egg yolk.
Yet amongst the many comments saying it looked delicious, the Aussie chef popped up saying: “Looks familiar mate.”
In response to accusing the potty-mouthed chef of stealing his recipe, Mitch Orr elaborated by explaining it is “standard etiquette” for chefs “to give credit where credit is due”.
He told Emerald City: “Gordon is one of the biggest chefs in the world with over nine million followers on social media – the right thing to do is to credit where the inspiration for the dish came from.”
The chef then reached out to one of Ramsay’s employees, chef Michael Dabbs, who found himself tagged in the discussion.
Orr said: “I haven’t heard anything from Gordon himself, but I have been in contact with the chef he tagged who agreed the [pasta] was too similar not to have given me credit for.”
Meanwhile, a man who insisted he “didn’t read the menu carefully” ending up racking a £614 bill whilst dining at Gordon Ramsay Steak at Harrah’s. Despite his meal costing an absolute fortune, the diner insisted he had no regrets as it was “unforgettable”.
