It all began when a customer shared his eye-watering bill from the establishment, Nusr-Et in Knightsbridge, with the receipt showing a giant tomahawk steak priced at £630 and a single Red Bull costing £11.
Now, a new TikTok video by food account Notorious Foodie (@notorious_foodie) is making the rounds which provides an insight into what you can expect at Salt Bae’s restaurant if you’re willing to fork out for the experience.
In the footage, recorded from the customer’s perspective, Salt Bae can be seen at the end of the table slicing up a joint of raw steak before transferring the slices onto a plate, which appears to be hot.
He then turns his focus to a baguette, which he tears up with his bare hands and chucks on top of the steak, before drenching the dish in hot melted butter to let the meat cook.
It wouldn’t be the full Salt Bae experience without the signature move from the man himself and the chef can later be seen doing his customary salt sprinkle, hitting off his arms as it landed on the food.
After this display, the steak is left to marinate and cook in butter.
