Caneda’s White Rooster was a Toms River, New Jersey restaurant featured on Season 3 of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back. Though the Caneda’s White Rooster 24 Hours to Hell and Back episode aired in January 2020, the actual filming and visit from Gordon Ramsay took place earlier in 2019. It was Episode 3 of Season 3.
Caneda’s White Rooster is located in Tom’s River, New Jersey.
Owned by Patty Caneda, this restaurant has been open for one year at the time of its appearance on Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back.
Patty opened the restaurant to honor her Grandmother’s Cuban recipes.
However, the head chef, Phil, and server Jenn say the staff is very young and lazy.
Patty has a business partner named Jeremy, who invested two million dollars into Caneda’s White Rooster, so he definitely has a lot of skin in the game.
Gordon comes into the restaurant with Jeremy, the both of them disguised.
They also bring two actors from the Sopranos, and everyone is distracted.
Gordon notes the restaurant doesn’t look or feel Cuban.
He smells a foul smell coming from the kitchen.
He orders classic Cuban fare such as empanadas, salmon, and grilled octopus.
The food smells putrid as it comes out.
Gordon calls the staff out and asks the dining room to raise their hands if they’re enjoying their food. No one raises their hand.
Gordon takes everyone onto the Hell on Wheels Bus to see the hidden footage.
The footage shows raw chicken that is rotten flies on the food and moldy fruit.
Jeremy is mad, and Patty claims she is present, although the staff says she is not.
There is a lack of organization in the dining room and in the kitchen.
Gordon finds rotten octopus and salmon as he looks over the kitchen.
This causes him to run to the bathroom to retch. Gordon does love the dramatic retching on his shows, right?
The master chef orders everyone to clean the kitchen and throw out the food.
While the designers are decorating the restaurant, Jenn states she isn’t a fan of the color of the walls.
Chef Phil tests his cooking skills on the bus with the new menu.
Patty is overwhelmed and vents to the servers.
Patty blames her business partner Jeremy for his lack of guidance.
It took Patty four years to open the restaurant.
She walked away from a marriage of eleven years for this, so she really wants it to go well.
The new restaurant is revealed, and Patty is very happy with the renovations.
Chef Phil loves the new kitchen equipment.
Patty and Jenn are both very pleased with the color of the walls.
During relaunch, the kitchen struggles as orders bombard them.
Customers are left waiting a long time for their food.
Chef Phil accidentally sends out raw fish. Gordon pulls him aside and gives him a pep talk to step up his cooking game.
Gordon takes Patty and Jeremy outside to discuss the future of Caneda’s White Rooster.
Jeremy commits to ninety more days.
Patty and Jeremy want to try and rescue the restaurant.
