One viral video and a perfectly manicured moustache later.
There are few reasons one might eat at one of Salt Bae’s restaurants. One, they are all for the gram. Two they are carnivorous lovers who will never turn vegan or plant-based, and are willing to pay a high price to show it. Nusret Gökçe, was once a chef who after a viral video became an Instagram sensation all around the world who now entertains the likes of Conor McGregor, Cristiano Ronaldo and the late Diego Maradona. In a world where perception is everything Gökçe aka, Salt Bae has harnessed the power of social status to birth a myriad of eateries people are hell-bent on trying.
Given the wealthy and famous eat at his restaurants, a recent receipt from one of Bae’s restaurants proves you need to be on some good coin to eat there. Understandably the cuisine and dishes on offer are nothing short of amazing, heavily-marbled cuts and enough wagyu to satisfy the best of carnivores promotes a culinary experience feeding off of Salt Bae’s profile. Those may indulge themselves at one of eighteen restaurants set across many glamorous cities around the world. The once butcher’s apprentice is now worth an estimated $50 million.
If one takes a closer look at the receipt from Bae’s eatery you’ll find 2 Gold Baklava coming in at a hefty $150, that’s $65 for something w’ere happy to eat at Nikos or Vanilla for $7. A table of six may not be the most responsible of individuals, however between all in attendance they racked up a hefty $6228.05 bill. This would translate to our trusty Aussie dollar with a big punch, per head it works out to be almost $1,200.
