This bill receipt at Salt Bae’s restaurant is driving everyone MAD – And the reason is this price

Famous chef Salt Bae has been hit with criticism after bragging about a $108,000 bill from his restaurant in Dubai.

Everyone has their own opinion of what’s considered a ‘nice meal’. For some, it’s wings and a beer at the local bar; for others, it’s a candlelit restaurant with multiple types of cutlery. And for a select few, it’s apparently meal that costs more than some people’s annual salary. It’s hard to believe any food could be worth splashing more than $100,000 in one sitting, but customers are clearly willing to do it at the Nusr-Et restaurant in Dubai owned by the viral Turkish chef Salt Bae, whose real name is Nusret Gökçe.

The chef has previously made headlines due to the high prices at his restaurants, but this time he’s caught people’s attention by bragging about them. In a post on Instagram, Salt Bae shared a picture of a check from his Dubai restaurant at the Four Seasons which totalled 398630 UAE dirham ($108,000).

The check listed everything the customers had ordered during their meal, including everything from a $13 portion of fries to three ‘Golden Steaks’, which totalled almost $1,400.

The customers also indulged in drinks including four porn star martinis ($130), two bottles of Chateau Petrus 2009 ($53,900), one bottle of Petrus 2011 ($17,700) and five double glasses of the exclusive Louis XIII cognac neat ($7,500). The meal didn’t stop there, with the check revealing 11 ‘Golden Baklava’ desserts for $1,250.

By the time a tip of $24,500 had been added, the bill was way beyond what most people would expect to pay for a meal. Or for a car. Salt Bae didn’t seem phased by the hefty pricetag attached to the customers’ bill, though, as he shared the picture of the check alongside the caption: “Money comes money goes.”

Understandably, the high prices left internet users shocked and prompted many people on Instagram to criticise the restauranteur for charging so much.

“Most overrated and overpriced restaurant,” one unimpressed person commented on Salt Bae’s post.

Another wrote: “Imagine being this wealthy…..and then blowing it on overpriced food.”

“How many people in poor countries could’ve eaten with the money spent here. I have zero respect for this so called chef,” wrote a third.

Salt Bae’s Dubai restaurant is one of more than 20 eateries he has established over the years, having found himself in the spotlight after a video of him sprinkling salt onto a steak went viral in 2017.
