Uncle Roger Loves Gordon Ramsay’s Egg Fried Rice, Ramsay Responds On Twitter With A Joke
He didn’t stop there in his bid to do justice by fried rice, and went on to critique other chefs’ ways of cooking the dish.
Most recently, Uncle Roger took on another famous chef — Gordon Ramsay.
And surprisingly, he absolutely loves Mr Ramsay’s take on it.
Uncle Roger reviews Ramsay’s Indonesian fried rice
On Sunday (20 Sep), Uncle Roger, otherwise known as Nigel Ng, uploaded a video on YouTube reviewing Mr Ramsay’s fried rice.
At the start of the video, he prepared himself for the worst, saying British chefs often let him down.
Mr Ramsay, however, proved himself worthy of his celebrity chef name.
Uncle Roger impressed by Ramsay’s woks
Just a short while into the review, Uncle Roger was already impressed.
Not only does Gordon Ramsay have a charred wok to ensure his fried rice is wok hey enough, he has 2 woks.
Even Uncle Roger doesn’t have 2 woks, apparently.
Later, when Mr Ramsay used sambal chilli and rendang, Uncle Roger clearly approved.
That’s the correct red paste, he said, unlike the chilli jam used by Jamie Oliver in his egg fried rice.
Uncle Roger thinks Ramsay deserves a ‘fuiyoh’
As Mr Ramsay finished up, he even did a few fancy tosses of his rice.
At the sight of that, Uncle Roger couldn’t help but go “fuiyoh” at Mr Ramsay’s skills.
“Fuiyoh”, he explained, is used when you are impressed. It’s the opposite of his now famous “haiyah” — an expression of disappointment.
And impressed was definitely what Uncle Roger was.
Uncle Roger even gave Ramsay his highest sign of respect, by calling him “Uncle Gordon”.
Uncle Roger wants Gordon Ramsay collab
Mr Ramsay’s video was so impressive that Uncle Roger gave his stamp of approval — an outstanding “A+++” grade.
Uncle Roger then expressed his interest in collaborating with the Brit, even asking his “niece and nephews” to pop the question for him.
In fact, Ucle Roger was so serious about this, he also asked the celebrity chef directly on Twitter.
Ramsay responds approvingly
Astoundingly, Mr Ramsay didn’t say yes to a collaboration just yet, he did respond to Uncle Roger’s tweet.
And he’s obviously stoked at the adulation, because the famously surly chef made a joke, taking the opportunity to make a jab at Jamie Oliver.
Mr Ramsay said he has 2 woks because he stole Jamie Oliver’s after he saw him put chilli jam in his rice.
Looks like Mr Ramsay is a fan of Uncle Roger too!
Possible collaboration underway?
Uncle Roger’s glowing endorsement of Mr Ramsay is a refreshing change from his usual strong criticism of chefs.
Looks like a collaboration just might be underway between the comedian and the chef.
We’ll just have to wait to see if Gordon will rice to the ocassion.
