Gemma Collins gobsmacked by £1,450 bill at Salt Bae’s restaurant

Gemma Collins was left in total shock after she was charged an extortionate amount of money for a steak at Salt Bae’s new London restaurant.

Salt Bae, real name Nusret Gökçe, recently opened the high-end restaurant in Knightsbridge, which is similar to his famous one in Dubai and celebrities have been desperate to head along for a golden steak.

And The Only Way Is Essex star took to Instagram recently to share her experience at the internet viral chef’s place Nusr-et.

The 40-year-old was joined by her boyfriend Rami Hawash, 45, for a romantic dinner but Gemma soon realised her mis-steak.

In a clip shared on Instagram, she filmed Salt Bae slicing the tomahawk steak and sprinkling salt using the method that made him famous, writes The Mirror.

The big piece of meat was also covered with a gold leaf to add a bit of luxury.

Gemma had a wonderful time at the restaurant but later talked about the price tag that comes with the experience.

She said on The Gemma Collins Podcast : “I have to give the ambience of the restaurant, the experience, a 10 out of 10.

Gemma still enjoyed her time at the restaurant

“The bill was another situation, I was in utter shock. But you have to weigh these things up, the press reported that my steak cost £700, if only they knew.

“I wish it cost £700. It actually cost £1,450.”

The GC went on to say how she felt “sick” when she woke up the next morning and remembered how much she spent.

She went on: “I went a bit over the top, but the only way I can justify it was that I haven’t been on holiday this year

“I’ve been on a staycation, so we sort of had maybe all our holidays in one evening. It’s something I’ve never done before, I would never spend that money, but we had a good evening.

“Yes we had 24 carat gold steak…I felt a bit sick. It was an amazing experience, I would have paid that to meet him anyway because I love him, and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Gemma then started thinking about all the “people starving in the world” and felt “bad” about the experience.

She went on to say how her favourite steak meal is actually the meals made by her boyfriend Rami.
