Burger fans took top chef Gordon Ramsay to task over his new ‘street food’ inspired burger over ‘too much sauce’
The patty was served up at Street Burger in Kensington, and critics took to Twitter to vent their disgust at the sloppy meal – the new ‘JFC’ chicken burger – after Gordon posted a promotional video online – with some comparing it to a ‘runny bowel movement’.
The post, designed to entice guests over to his eatery, was criticized over a generous helping of patented ‘JFC’ sauce, seen slopping over the sides of the bun.
Saucy! Street Burger has come under fire once again after diners took the chef to task on Twitter after being served up burgers with too much sauce
Gordon aimed to entice guests to his West Kensington branch of Street Burger with a video of the new spicy ‘JFC’ burger
UK based singer Bontan was among Gordon’s critics, saying that ‘half the sauce isn’t on the burger’
The celebrity chef posted to his own Twitter account with a picture of the burger, saying: ‘Now that’s how you make the perfect JFC burger at Street Burger Kensington!’
The burger is described as ‘Jocky’s fried chicken, chilli spiced buttermilk chicken, hash brown, iceberg lettuce, cheese and JFC sauce’ on the Street Burger website.
The video had slow R&B music in the background and the words ‘God Damn!’ as the burger is constructed and then drizzled with the bright orange condiment, which flowed down the meat and onto the serving tray.
However, the post, which had 867 likes, was flooded with critics, who dubbed the chicken burger ‘repulsive’.
This isn’t the first time the UK chef, famous for his temper in the kitchen, has been critiqued for his burger making skills
Persil Pro Clean even jumped in on the thread, when someone suggested that the messy burger wasn’t suitable for a work lunch, the detergent brand said: ‘We’re here to help’
One said: ‘Street food? Isn’t that sauce all down your shirt for the afternoon shift?’
Another said: ‘Repulsive. Couldn’t they manage to make one without that orange muck everywhere? Just creepy.’
Someone even compared the bespoke sauce to ‘3D printed resin,’ saying: ‘Why did they cover it with melted 3D resin?’
A Twitter user joked: ‘How to make a mess of your clothes.’
‘Half the sauce isn’t on the burger,’ one person added.
Persil Pro Clean even jumped in on the thread, when someone suggested that the messy burger wasn’t suitable for a work lunch, the detergent brand said: ‘We’re here to help.’
One social media user claimed the JFC sauce was the ‘sh**test on the planet’, turning fiery Ramsay’s own technique of using expletives to bash other chefs against him.
Another acknowledged the chef’s skills saying: ‘While you do know your stuff, you have to eat a burger with your hands, you can’t possibly pick that up while it’s dripping oozing sauce.’
This isn’t the first time the UK chef, famous for his temper in the kitchen, has been critiqued for his burger making skills after it was reported last year that customers were less than impressed with his Ramsay’s burger joint in West Kensington claiming the food is ‘tasteless’ and ‘takes an hour’.
Last month it was announced that another branch of Street Burger would be opening in Edinburgh.
The chef has also opened Street Pizza in St Paul’s London, an offshoot of the brand – and also has a posh burger place in Harrods, which charges customers £80 for a burger with no chips.
