Wetherspoons chef offers glimpse inside kitchen and shatters microwave myth

News

The Wetherspoons chef took to TikTok to share how quickly he can prepare a “traditional” breakfast but fans were stunned to find out that all the food is cooked fresh

A Wetherspoons chef shocked fans as he revealed how breakfasts are cooked at the budget pub chain – as there isn’t a microwave in sight.

The unnamed chef shared a video on TikTok giving a step-by-step guide on how he prepares a traditional Wetherspoons breakfast from start to finish in under five minutes.

But when fans saw the meal had been freshly cooked rather than being warmed through in the microwave, a common myth with Spoons dishes, they were impressed.

In the clip he starts by putting two slices of bacon onto the grill and cracking an egg.

He then deep fries two hash browns and puts a slice of bread on the grill too.

And as fans were confused as to why he didn’t use a toaster, he later revealed in another video that it was broken and has since been replaced.

After that, he begins plating up his dish.

First things first, he adds a grilled tomato, and a sausage to the plate before turning his attention back to the bacon and flipping it.

He adds the hash browns, egg, bacon, toast and a spoonful of beans, then all that’s left to do is send off the steaming hot plate – bar the slightly cold beans – to the customer.

Since being posted, it has been watched over 500,000 times, received 54,700 likes and over 900 comments.

One person said: “Wait they don’t actually microwave everything?”

Another added: “I genuinely thought spoons kitchens only have microwaves in AHAHAH.”

A third said: “Oh my days, always wondered how Wetherspoons do its food.”

And a fellow employee wrote: “I work at spoons too, funny to see the myth buster that everything’s microwaved.”

A few other fans joked that Tim Martin, founder of the Wetherspoons franchise, wouldn’t approve of the grilled bread, and the chef joked: “They’re probably printing my p45 as we speak” with a crying emoji.

After popular demand, he has continued to share how he whips up the Wetherspoons classics in a foodie series like its southern fried chicken wrap, and chicken korma curry.
