It's Extremely Satisfying to Watch Gordon Ramsay Get Roasted for His Terrible Pad Thai

*chef's kiss*

The video resurfaced on Twitter from an eight-year-old episode of The F Wordwhere Ramsay tries to cook a meal for a group of Buddhist monks at a London monastery. Before giving them the final product though, he asks Chang, the chef of a now-closed Thai restaurant in London called Blue Elephant, to give his dish a whirl.

Chang is so thoroughly unimpressed by the attempt, Ramsay just about withers under his scowl. See for yourself:

"This is not pad Thai at all!" Chang admonishes. And that face he makes. Savage.

You can see why this went viral almost a decade after being filmed. Ramsay is a notorious asshole when it comes to food—it's how he makes the big bucks. He's also gotten himself into hot water for saying a traditional south Indian breakfast dish called medu vada looked like prison food. We'll take our sweet, sweet just desserts however we can get 'em.


Here's the full segment, for your viewing pleasure:
