Undeterred by all of the negative comments to the 161,000 euros bill paid by some customers at his restaurant in Abu Dhabi, the Turkish-Kurdish chef Nusret, more commonly known as Salt Bae, chose to respond to critics with a golden steak.
In particular, Nusret Gökçe posted a video on Instagram with a steak covered in 24-carat gold leaf.
“Federal Bank – 24K gold,” he captioned the video, which appears to have been taken in one of his restaurant kitchens.
The video with the golden steak came a few days after… the big binge in a restaurant in Abu Dhabi for which the chef himself appeared ecstatic over the bill of 161,550 euros , that is, what an 80 m2 apartment would cost in Athens!
As he wrote, in fact, posting the relevant proof: “quality never expensive”.
His opinion, however, did not seem to be shared by all his followers.
“The most overrated part,” commented one follower. “Clear robbery” commented another.
Check out some of the comments below Nusret’s post:
However, Nusret avoided revealing who paid the outrageous amount of 161,550 euros to eat at his restaurant.
In addition to the appetisers and the “golden” steaks, the customer also opened two bottles of Petrus 2009 wine and paid 200,000 dirhams (52,541 euros). This wine in the cellar (if you can find it) is 6,000 euros a bottle.
The description of this wine could be reduced to the words “100 out of 100 from Robert Parker”! However, this was obviously not by chance, as this is a wine with an incomparable expression on the nose and a perfect structure in the mouth, with just the right depth.
