Gordon Ramsay's Pad Thai Criticized, But Monks Approve on 'The F Word' (VIDEO)

Buddhist monks are only allowed to eat one meal per day, and, as it turns out, they can be less-than-zen about it. More accurately, a few lucky monks are lucky to have Chef Chang, the head chef at the Blue Elephant, one of London's top Thai restaurants, to be picky on their behalf. Chang had no problem telling Gordon Ramsay his food wasn't up to snuff on 'The F Word' (Tuesdays, 10PM on BBC America).
Ramsay was charged with making Pad Thai for the monks' only meal of the day. He wanted to impress Chef Chang, so he put in a few twists. But when he asked Chang what he thought, Chang actually crinkled his nose. "This is not Pad Thai at all," said Chang. "Pad Thai has to be sweet, sour, and salty." In fact, Chang used a more colorful expression to describe it, and Ramsay seemed hurt and amused all at once.
