Diners rack up massive £37,000 bill at Salt Bae’s new London restaurant

If you remember Salt Bae – the chef who went viral for the way he sprinkles his salt – then you’ll know he recently opened a brand new London restaurant.

And, people have been sharing the obscene prices at the Knightsbridge hotspot including a £630 tomahawk steak, £23 salad and £12 pot of sweetcorn.

Even a Coke will set you back a hefty £9!

But, one table blew social media users away when they shared their receipt online and it showed they’d spent £37,000 on a meal out.

Yes, 37 grand. On one meal.

The diners blew a huge £850 on a golden tomahawk steak, £400 on 16 baklavas (a type of pastry dessert) and £30 on three potions of fries.

The receipt showed they spent thousands on booze

They also spent a tonne of money on vegetable dishes including £12 for sautéed mushrooms, £14 on broccoli, £18 on Asparagus and £12 on mashed spuds.

But, it was the booze that cost them the price of a small house deposit.

Not happy with a few glasses of the house red they decided to buy a 1996 Petrus which cost £9,100.

Then they threw in two bottles of the Petrus 2003 which cost a huge £19.900.

On top of that they had a 2006 Dom Perignon rosé for just £1,620. Imagine!

In total, the table spent £30,620 on alcohol. If they’d gone bootless they’d only have spent £1,574 – which is still the most expensive meal we’d have ever eaten.

The restaurant, Nusr-Et London Steakhouse, went viral after foodies saw similar expensive bills.

But, what’s on Salt Bae – real name Chef Nusret Gökçe Erzurum – menu?

You can snap up gold coated burgers and steaks covered in gold leaf. Plus, other meat dishes like lamb, meatballs, Turkish sausage and beef fillets.

There are also salads, an onion flower, mash croquets and a spoon salad (a finely chopped Turkish dish).

And, tasty desserts including sorbet, ice cream and baklava.

Just go easy on the soft drinks and a Red Bull costs £11!
