Salt Bae's London Restaurant Faces More Backlash After £37k Receipt Surfaces

Just in case you thought things couldn't get weirder right now, internet sensation Salt Bae has finally opened his long-awaited UK restaurant, and it's caused quite a bit of drama after receipts from the restaurant were posted online.

It's only been four years since Salt Bae became, well, Salt Bae. The video of Turkish butcher Nusret Gökçe sprinkling salt onto steak has racked up almost 17m views and Gökçe has opened 15 of his Nusr-Et Steakhouses around the globe.

The drama all started earlier this month following the opening of his latest location in Knightsbridge, London. Quickly a diner posted an £1,812 receipt online and people started calling out the venue's high prices. But if you thought nearly two grand was bad wait until you see the latest receipt posted online... £37,023.12... Yep, you read that right.

In all fairness to Salt Bae, the majority of the bill seems to come from the drinks: two bottles of champagne and three bottles of wine, although that £18 asparagus isn't exactly a bargain.

A few weeks earlier, just as the restaurant had opened, a diner posted a receipt showing that a single Tomahawk steak at Nusr-Et Knightsbridge was priced at £630, a golden burger (yes that's right) costs £100 while you'll pay £18 for a single onion flower (?). Quickly Twitter chaos ensued...

Meanwhile others got started calling out the orders on the almost £2,000 bill, with many people asking why anyone would ever order a steak and a Red Bull. Hey, each to their own... except when Red Bulls are £11 each.

You'd be fuming if you just had a salad and a water wouldn't you?
