Salt Bae’s restaurant presents the customer with an Rs. 1.3 crore bill.
Turkish chef Nusret Gokce, known as “Salt Bae,” enjoys stirring up controversy.
His London restaurant was criticized for being overpriced last year, but the Nusr-Et restaurant in Abu Dhabi has set the bar even higher.
Details about Salt Bae’s restaurant hands Rs 1.3 crore bill to customer:
The chef recently posted a photo of a bill that was delivered to a patron at the restaurant in The Galleria on Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi, totaling AED 615,065 (more than Rs 1.3 crore).
The customer placed many orders for alcoholic beverages, including five quantities of Petrus and two of Petrus 2009, one of the priciest wines in the world, according to the check dated November 17, 2022.
The Value Added Tax (VAT) came to more than Rs 6.5 lakh, and they alone cost more than Rs 1 crore.
Salt Bae’s statement that “quality never pricey” about the bill in an Instagram post was criticized for not being the kind of brag it purported to be.
“$45 for a serving of fries? Do they come from the moon’s soil? For a Heineken, $55? A 12 pack?” wrote one user in jest.
Others questioned the claim regarding the quality because the majority of the orders were for booze alone.
On social media, Salt Bae was not only universally despised but many of his disgruntled fans even unfollowed him because of the tweet.
“When I initially started following you, I thought you’d be a terrific role model for kids. I witnessed a self-made success who was formerly impoverished and will motivate others to value the hard effort. This is not the cost of your mediocre burgers, Nusret. This is the price you pay for your expensive lifestyle and display of privilege, and guess what? You’re so CHEAP,” said one of the comments.
The chef is well known for a viral video that became a meme and depicts him “suavely” salting steak. When it became viral at its highest point in January 2017, the butcher gained the moniker “Salt Bae.”
