A video of Gordon Ramsay's steak tartare divided viewers when it was uploaded on Twitter – with many arguing the raw meat looked like "cat food".
In the clip, which went viral on Thursday (April 29) the meat is plated up with a single raw egg yolk on top.
A knife then slices through the yolk so it tantalisingly oozes through the beef and onto the plate.
Served up next to the steak tartare are four paper-thin potato wafers that many trolls have suggested are no better than a "few crisps".
The video was uploaded onto Gordon Ramsay's official Twitter account with the caption: "The most delicious steak tartare at Gordon Ramsay Bar and Grill."
It has since been watched more than 130,000 times and received hundreds of "likes" and "retweets".
Although a few enthusiasts of haute cuisine paid the chef some compliments, many were put off the raw meat and egg yolk.
Some even compared it to cat food – not the look he was going for.
One person blasted: "Cat food with crisps."
A second user said: "Tin of cat food delicately emptied onto the plate garnished with a few crisps. Magnificent."
Someone else said: "I feed my cat cat food with an egg in it. I feel like a gourmand chef now."

"Come on… how can you serve that… its f***ing raw!" a fourth said.
The Gordon Ramsay Bar and Grill is a swish hotel restaurant situated in London’s affluent Mayfair district.
A 10-ounce sirloin steak at the restaurant would set you back £29 while a "smoked eggplant platter" would cost £24.
This comes after the TV chef was bashed on social media for a prank he recorded that was blasted as a "waste of food".
He asked a Starbucks drive-thru worker via the speaker: "Do you have any of those amazing toasties? Is that the ham and cheese Jamie Oliver toastie from the Shell garage?"
Once he bit into his toastie, he moaned about the quality and promptly tossed it in the bin.
