KITCHEN knives are out for Blues star Martijn Reuser today after he took a swipe at the Ipswich restaurant scene, claiming good food cannot be found on the town's menus.

KITCHEN knives are out for Blues star Martijn Reuser today after he took a swipe at the Ipswich restaurant scene, claiming good food cannot be found on the town's menus.

After the Dutch playmaker admitted he looked forward to trips to London so he could get a decent meal, restaurateurs have boiled up into a right stew.

On the contrary the traffic is definitely the other way. More and more people travelling from London to discover Ipswich's culinary delights, they said.

But turning his attention from pace-setting to place settings, midfielder Reuser has other ideas.

"Ipswich and her surroundings have a lot to offer but unfortunately good food is definitely not one of them," the £3million-rated player said on his official website.

And he went on to issue a bizarre challenge in a county town which prides itself on its culinary excellence.

"If my opinion will ever inspire any decent chef to start a restaurant in town, I can assure him or her he will have a loyal customer in my girlfriend and me," he said.
