Ramsay gained fame for his intense persona and direct communication style, often showcased in his popular TV show, Hell's Kitchen, where he doesn't hesitate to express his opinions, sometimes accompanied by passionate outbursts.

Ramsay, known for his straightforward and candid approach, was once asked about his thoughts on dishes people should steer clear of when dining out - and his answer makes sense. 

Speaking to Town & Country in 2017, Ramsay said: "Ask what yesterday’s soup du jour was before today’s special. It may be the case that it’s the soup du month."

Another question posed to Ramsay was whether he believes seeking recommendations from servers is a wise decision.

"It really depends on the restaurants, but servers tend to taste most of the dishes on the menu and can give you insight to what the chef has added or what locals love," the 57-year-old said.

"Being on the road, I’ve gotten a lot of great recommendations from servers."

This isn't the first instance of Ramsay cautioning diners about opting for the special dishes at a restaurant, expressing a specific concern about some places featuring a soup of the day.

According to the chef, when it comes to choosing the soup, it's advisable to inquire about what was served the day before. If it turns out to be the same, Ramsay suggests you might be in a situation where the soup has persisted as the "soup of the week" or even "soup of the month."

Additionally, Ramsay offers a unique piece of advice for those dining out on a romantic evening. He recommends booking a three-person table, as this strategic move reduces the likelihood of ending up "stuck in the corner like a doorstop."

"There's no f***ing way I eat on planes. I worked for airlines for ten years, so I know where this food's been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board," he previously told Refinery 29.

Instead, Ramsay chooses to have a meal before boarding his flight, often leaning towards Italian cuisine.

"A nice selection of Italian meats, a little glass of red wine, some sliced apples or pears with some parmesan cheese, I'm like a pig in s**t," he quipped.
