Videos shared on TikTok show how the a Spoons chef makes curries and breakfast, and it might come as a bit of a surprise…
Chef J Salsa joked that he does not get ‘paid enough’ in a video of him reheating plastic packets of rice in the microwave and precooking a naan on the grill.
It came as a huge shock to some people that Wetherspoons’ food was made in a microwave!
In a series of ‘how to cook Wetherspoons’ dishes, the TikTok star has revealed all the secrets of the kitchens.
He went on to explain: “First up, warm up your defrosted chicken curry in the microwave for about two or three minutes along with your rice for another two minutes.
“Then I prepared these poppadoms earlier so just slap it on the plate. When your rice is ready slap it on the plate. I don’t get paid enough for this.
“Put your curry into the special traditional curry bowl, imported straight from India, custom made just for spoons. Then put your bread onto the plate.”
His ‘how to make a Wetherspoons chicken korma curry’ video has racked up over one million views and thousands of comments, with many people in dismay they’re ‘paying for microwave meals’.
One user commented “U ARE JOKING” while another wrote: “Don’t know why I expected better from spoons but I did”.
One pointed out ‘you mean to tell me I pay £7.50 for a microwave meal’, but others explained that you are ‘pretty much a microwave technician in that place’.
Another Spoons employee added: “I work at Spoons too and why y’all surprised its microwaved? It legit comes in 5 minutes you really think everything is made fresh?’
In a ‘how to make a Wetherspoons traditional breakfast’ video, where the egg is freshly fried as well as the freshly grilled bacon, fans were actually surprised that the full English wasn’t all prepared in a microwave.
One user commented ‘I genuinely thought spoons kitchens only had microwaves in’.
It seems some dishes are fresh but the chefs definitely rely on the microwave for others. Will it stop you going to Spoons or do you not mind?
Gordon Ramsay has angered everyone again with his £56 Sunday roast
Gordon Ramsay has done it again, and this time fans are very unimpressed by his £56 Sunday roast.
The TV chef has already been dragged for serving up a £19 Full English breakfast that was ‘pitiful’, with fans saying ‘where’s the rest of it?’
Someone also left a one-star review on TripAdvisor for ‘five small slices of meat and over salted fries’, aka steak and chips at his restaurant.
Gordon announced the news of his Sunday lunch at the Savoy Grill in London on Instagram, writing: “Sunday’s at @SavoyGrillGordonRamsay roast sirloin of beef with all the trimmings… absolutely stunning!!”.
Except fans were pretty disappointed that ‘all the trimmings’ didn’t exactly mean ‘all’.
One person wrote: “Is that a child’s portion?”, while another added: “Where’s the rest of it?”
A third person commented: “Error 404. Trimmings not found.”
The worst bit, the restaurant charges £56 for two courses and a drink.
The roast uses ‘prime local produce’ and the ‘precise culinary techniques’ used mean guests can ‘revel in the delights of roast sirloin of beef, seasonal vegetables and Yorkshire pudding, followed by a classic Savoy dessert – Baked Alaska’.
The website adds that you can top it off with your choice of ‘Bloody Mary or fruit cocktail’ for a two course experience ‘you’ll remember’.
But not everyone was as mortified as others.
One person pointed out: “If you want shit food and lots of it for a cheap price go to a Toby carvery, if you want quality food from a Michelin star chef it comes with a price!”
Another added: “Oh hell yes!”
What do you think, would you pay £56 for a roast?

Wetherspoons chef who shared footage of what the kitchens are really like has been suspended
This month, a TikTok star went viral after revealing what Wetherspoons kitchens are really like – but he’s now been suspended.
The chef, known as J Salsa, posted videos on TikTok showing how Wetherspoons dishes are made, including a Full English, Chicken Korma and Chicken Wraps.
Some items were cooked from fresh such as fried eggs, but others were quite reliant on microwaves, leaving some TikTok users genuinely surprised.
In J Salsa’s latest video, captioned ‘I’m sorry Tim Martin’, he explains he has now been suspended for posting the videos, adding that his actions had been a ‘mistake.
He explained that when the company’s head office found out, they contacted the pub where he works.
He said: “My manager has had a meeting with me today about the whole thing, the whole situation. They were really calm about it, to be honest.
“They understood and I explained my point of view – it was a mistake.”
He continued: “I didn’t mean to cause no harm to the company. Long story short, I’m suspended until my disciplinary meeting where I will find out if I get fired or not.
“So no more Wetherspoon’s videos for now.”
But J Salsa is committed to the cause and told fans to expect plenty more content, adding: “I still got more though. I’ve got steaks for you, I’ve got burgers for you, but for now I can’t post them until I hear the decision.”
