Gordon Ramsay Upset After Asian Critic Basically Calls His ‘Authentic Asian’ Restaurant Trash

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has recently taken to Instagram to berate an Asian critic who described his “authentic Asian” restaurant as a “kitchen nightmare.”

Food columnist Angela Hui attended the preview night for Ramsay’s “Asian Eating House” concept called the Lucky Cat and dished out some unflattering remarks about the event in her article on Eater.

Toronto Taiwanese Hot Spot is the Product of an Asian Mom Who Sacrificed All For Her Sons

When gleaming photos of a new dumpling shop started popping up in the explore feed of my anonymous food Instagram account, I knew I had to double tap and investigate myself. Growing up on your mother’s Taiwanese home cooking, you’ll always want to challenge any authenticity claims.

After reading that Chop Chop TO is a family run restaurant, I instinctively knew it was more than just about food. Keeping it all in the family is fairly typical of a Chinese business, but this pointed to the universal love language of Asian parents who don’t show physical affection: I love you so I will help you and give you everything I can. The sacrifices and endless support replace those out the door pecks on the cheek and the audible “I Love You” phrase.

Acclaimed Chef Roy Choi Hits Back at NY Times’ Scathing Zero-Star Review With Absolute Class

Restaurant critic Pete Wells of the New York Times is currently on the receiving end of backlash after he gave a zero-star review (a first outside New York) on Locol, a promising health-conscious fast food chain built on a model of “giving back to communities” from chefs Daniel Patterson and Roy Choi.

The review in question was Wells’ assessment of the chain’s Oakland outlet, titled: “Fast Food for Needy Neighborhoods, at Locol in California”, in which he gave a scathing criticism of its food, calling it bland, dry, and unappealing.

Tasting the World’s FIRST Michelin-Starred Ramen

Ever since Tsuta became the world’s first ramen restaurant to get a Michelin Star last year, I’ve been dying to visit Tokyo, Japan to try it for myself.

Unfortunately, the lines were just too insane last year and they ended up closing for the holidays during our stay. We even tried calling them to see whether they’d grant an interview with us because we’re, but we ain’t that big yet and the chef had no idea who we were. They ended up hanging up on us mid sentence. GG OWNED!

Food Reviewers Get Fired After Writing Mean Review of Family-Owned Restaurant They Didn’t Even Go To

An Australian magazine dumped its food reviewers after a family-owned restaurant called out what appeared to be a vengeful review as a fake.

Kelly Ramsay and Chloe James, former food reviewers for the Sunday Times weekend magazine STM in Western Australia, published a harsh review of the West End Deli on Sunday about a mediocre dinner they had at the restaurant.

Angry Reviewer Gets Shut Down By Cafe Owner After Complaining Over $2.88 Bill

A U.K. cafe owner is being applauded after responding to one TripAdvisor reviewer who was on a “tight budget” and left a not-so-nice review after she was charged £2, about $2.88, for a slice of lemon and some hot water.

The woman, known as Hannah C., went out for tea with some friends at Bennett’s Cafe & Bistro in York. As Hannah was on a tight budget, she ordered a hot water and a lemon while her friends ordered tea and cake. When the check came, she was shocked to see she was charged at all and complained to the staff, who she alleges became rude over the matter.
