Diner racks up massive £37,000 bill at Salt Bae's new London restaurant

The menu includes an £8500 steak and £9 Coca-Cola, but it is still unbelievable that dines managed to rack up a massive £37,000 bill at Salt Bae’s first UK restaurant.

Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, who became an internet sensation in 2017 when a video of him seasoning steak by theatrically dropping salt from a height went viral, and he opened his first restaurant in London last month.

Now, a diner has shared their receipt online showing one table had spent spent £37,023 on a meal out.

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

They also spent a lot 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 alcohol 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.

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.

But after one diner posted a copy of his receipt from a meal at the restaurant online, flabbergasted commenters have labelled the prices at the establishment “absolutely ridiculous” and “obscene”, the Manchester Evening News reported.

Prices aren’t listed on the restaurant’s website, but according to the receipt, the Knightsbridge restaurant also charges £11 for Red Bull, £12 for sweetcorn and £100 for a ‘golden burger’.

Alongside the £630 giant tomahawk steak, other menu items include a battered and fried ‘onion flower’ for £18, and a rack of lamb for £200.

Author Francisco Garcia posted a copy of his receipt – which added up to an eye-watering £1,812.40, including a £236.40 service charge – on Twitter, with the caption: “Salt Bae is the world’s greatest living artist”.
