1 month ago 45

After getting dismayed of egg fried rice cooking by British chefs Hersha Patel and Jamie Oliver, Malaysian comedian Nigel Ng gave two thumbs up for Hell's Kitchen star Gordon Ramsay's Indonesian fried rice recipe.

Ng rose to fame with his brash Chinese persona Uncle Roger who reviewed British chefs' fried rice cooking and condemned them for not knowing the simple Asian cuisine. In July, his video went viral as he criticized BBC chef Hersha Patel for draining cooked rice and washing it with tap water.

On September 20, Uncle Roger reviewed Ramsay Around the World video that was posted on YouTube on September 6. The video shows the recent trip to Indonesia of the Michelin-starred chef earlier this year where he learned to cook Nasi Goreng, a common take-out food in this Asian country. For the video, he took the spicy fried rice to the next level using quick and easy cooking and it currently had over 1.1 million views.

Initially, Ng had low expectations for Ramsay's cooking, but he was surprised to see Ramsay using traditional methods, local ingredients, a wok to whip up the dish, and using leftover rice for the recipe.

The 29-year-old comedian was also impressed at how Ramsay was cooking outdoors in the video as it seems the chef is "in the middle of nowhere." He also noted how Asian households usually have two kitchens at home.

"I like that Gordon is cooking outside. Many Asian people have two kitchens, outside kitchen and indoor kitchen," Ng said adding indoor kitchens are only used to impress guests and chop mango.

"But if we use outside kitchen, that's when you know real food is coming," said Ng adding that if Asian people only cooked food from the inside kitchen, "they don't like you."

The stand-up comic also praised Ramsay for using authentic Indonesian spices like galangal, sambal, and rendang into his fried rice. "Oh, he knows about galangal. Not many white people know about galangal," Ng said adding that a bad chef would just use ginger or chilli jam, then he showed a snip of Jamie Oliver's fried rice video he previously reviewed.

In the middle of the video, Ng who appeared very pleased by Ramsey's way of cooking just noticed about the chef's skin, noting that he may need a little moisturizer. Then he joked about putting Oliver's fried rice on the face to get instant moisturizing.

Meanwhile, Ng praised Ramsey for using wok and clay stove for cooking, but he was more astounded to see the chef changed the wok after cooking the egg. "Gordon has two woks!" he exclaimed adding that even him only has one wok back at home.

Aside from using fork for his rice, Ng said Ramsay earned his respect and will call him Uncle Gordon from then on. "Good job, I really like this guy," Ng added. Also, he liked that Ramsay's yelling of customers and his "hate" for vegetarians.

Ng concluded his review urging his fans to comment on Ramsay's social media as he wants to collaborate with him. As of this writing, the review now has 3.5 million views and 325,000 likes.

Uncle Roger vocabulary: Haiyaa versus Fuiyoh

When Ramsay suggested the fries would go well with fish, chicken, or left-over beef, Ng was happy to know the chef is not vegan. And when Gordon started tossing the rice, Ng just exclaimed: "Fuiyoh!" It is another slang he uses when he is impressed.

According to Ng, Fuiyoh is direct opposite of his more popular slang "haiyaah," which he used more in his last reviews when he was dismayed.

Ng also shared some of his fans who asked him whether they can use haiyaah when communicating, even if they are not Asians, in which he answered it is fine to use it and it is not racist. Instead, he encouraged everybody to use the word when they are angry, disappointed, or sad. "Haiyah is the MSG of words," he added.
