“Salt Bae”, whose real name is Nusret Gökçe, became a viral meme four years ago for his technique for preparing and seasoning meat. With an impressive following of 38 million on Instagram, the Turkish chef owns Nusr-Et, a chain of restaurants with several branches around the globe, including in Mykonos, New York, Miami, Boston, Abu Dhabi, and several across Turkey.
Last week, Salt Bae’s latest venture saw Nusr-Et in Knightsbridge, London, open its doors. However, since the opening, diners have been turning to social media to express their shock at the restaurant’s prices.
After eating at the Knightsbridge Nusr-Et restaurant on opening night, one customer using the Twitter name Jamz shared a receipt which included a giant tomahawk steak worth £630 and a Red Bull priced at £11.
While Knightsbridge may be known for its more expensive, luxury dining experiences, the receipt from the Nusr-Et Steakhouse has been widely shared across social media, with many questioning how the drinks and dishes can possibly be so expensive.
