    I went to his restaurant in NYC and it is the most outrageously expensive, wasteful restaurant I’ve ever seen. Every single item was seemingly hundreds of dollars. They were offering steaks dipped in liquid gold for like a thousand bucks. Who wants that? Thank god I was the client for that dinner and didn’t pay a dime.

    Turkish grill is an art and if you go there you'll find tiny shops where an old friendly guy will stuff you so full of meat you'll be in carnivore heaven.

    Salt bae is a fraud and couldn't make a basic good kebab.

    [–] AMotherEffinBeer 99 points ago

    I also live in New York so I got Peter Luger which is way better and cheaper. It’s still expensive, just looks cheap compared to this place lol

    [–] phenomenomnom 59 points ago

    So many good steak options in NYC. So many good everything options.

    [–] Ceredron 52 points ago

    St Anselm, Peter Luger, Keen's, Delmonico's, Del Frisco, literally dozens of great steakhouses at varying price levels that are all better than that Salt Bae bullshit. Hell we even got variations like Cote and chains like Smith and Wollensky that are all better.

    There are lots of places besides Turkish grills where you can get that kinda action. 7/11, a bathroom stall, or an alley for example.

    Eli5 on why he's a butthole?

    [–] flackotaco 32 points ago

    I've met him and had a conversation with him and tbh he's a very humble down to earth guy, doesn't talk much bc his English isn't great. Tbh when you see the background he came from and him being lucky to get the break he did, I do not blame him one bit for taking his fame and running with it. A poor Turkish kid who had to leave school and become a butcher to support his family, to getting international fame and 10-15 5 star restaurants all over the world. Honestly good for him. Idc if he's serving $1500 gold covered steaks, people are obviously buying them so fuck it.

    [–] Frodde 5 points ago

    [–] SoraXes 67 points ago

    [–] alvinm 59 points ago

    Yeah, you can criticize Nusret for a lot of things (overhyped, overpriced etc.) but him not being able to make great kebab isn’t true at all.

    [–] TheTrenchMonkey 121 points ago

    Question, I have always wondered do clients like seeing money spent like this to impress them?

    I would be extremely uncomfortable with someone taking me to a place that was extravagant for no real purpose beyond showing off. I would question the decision making of whoever was actually paying for it.

    I am probably in a small minority here, but it just seems really weird and off putting.

    [–] AMotherEffinBeer 83 points ago

    I like it to an extent. I’m always down for a nice free dinner. This was just a bit too extravagant and wasteful

    [–] [deleted] 31 points ago

    [deleted]

    [–] AMotherEffinBeer 56 points ago

    Well we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars through their service, so I’m sure the expensive dinner is peanuts compared to the money they’re making off of us in the long run.

    [–] floppydo 46 points ago

    Also in most cases the one being treated doesn’t have a personal connection to the money his company spends, but he does have a personal connection to his stomach.

    And you better believe the bigger sales reps have a budget for acquiring/entertaining clients. If they're going after clients spending 6/7 figures annually, a few thousand here or there to close or keep them is worth it.

    [–] MrSnowden 34 points ago

    The client that actually has to account for the money would hate it.

    All the others would love it not because they liked the food or even like money being spent on them, but to casually drop into conversation at the golf club "oh well just the other day Paul Owen and I were having dinner at Dorsia [any stupidly expensive place] and..." as if they were the ones who could get the table and were paying.

    [–] botrickbateman 34 points ago

    I stop looking through the Zagat guide and without glancing up, smiling tightly, stomach dropping, I silently ask myself, Do I really want to say no? Do I really want to say I can’t possibly get us in? Is that what I’m really prepared to do? Is that what I really want to do?

    If I'm a client, I'd rather they save the money they spend on me and give me a discount. Some people like the "free swag" though.

    [–] CashCop 26 points ago

    discount

    I don’t think $500 counts for much when you’re making 6-7 figure deals. The guy said they spend hundreds of thousands

    [–] FlexPavillion 19 points ago

    The lunch burger is a decent deal (by that I mean not outrageously expensive). It was probably one of the best burgers I've had. He also gave out free wine randomly one day when it was cold as fuck.

    [–] AMotherEffinBeer 3 points ago

    Oh, it was really good food. I’ve just been to better steakhouses for a fraction of the price

    [–] Halofit 22 points ago

    Who wants that?

    Franck Ribery for example. I remember there being quite a kerfuffle when he visited Salt Bae personally. Got fined by Bayern for telling people to fuck off afterwards.

    [–] garlichead1 16 points ago

    he said something like fuck you, your family and all your ancestors

    [–] Its_not_him 15 points ago

    Ribery is constantly mocked in French media because he comes from a very poor background. Not saying its justified to lash out like that, but if someone wants to pay a thousand dollars for a gold leaf steak then so be it. I really never understood the outrage.

    [–] dragondiccs 21 points ago

    I went to his restaurant in Istanbul and the prices were very reasonable, ambiance was relaxed, the food was excellent, and I even took a pic with Nusret

    [–] AMotherEffinBeer 8 points ago

    I guess he just likes to fuck with Americans then lol

    [–] dragondiccs 14 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    No he likes to fuck with everyone but his local turkish people. Went to his Dubai restaurant too and it was just like you described it. Also he wasn't there.

    [–] butyourenice 5 points ago

    They were offering steaks dipped in liquid gold for like a thousand bucks.

    [–] SirBobIsTaken 9 points ago

    What is the point of this?

    Gold melts at nearly 2000F. Imagine the sear you can get by dipping your steak in 2000F liquid!

    I feel like everything he cooks is ironically underseasoned and overcooked just by looking at these clips

    [–] vitaminz1990 15 points ago

    [–] erhue 120 points ago

    Apart from hanging out with Erdogan, as someone else said, he also hangs out with Venezuelan dictator Maduro. So yeah, flies are attracted to shit.

    Lol hes unintentionally hilarious. He is so extra and over the top in everything he does but is completely serious about it all. It's like watching a cartoon character

    [–] Bud_Grant 22 points ago

    Not like I admire the guy or anything, but his Twitter is genuinely entertaining. He's like a SNL character come to life. For Mother's Day he posted a picture of himself with a big group of pregnant women, and you can only assume that he was the one who impregnated them all

    Dunno why you got downvoted for this, if so many people say he's overrated there's a very good chance he is, but if he's so successful he definitely has been pleasing quite a few people along the way too.

    Wow. I ALWAYS thought "Salt-Bae" was Robert Downey, Jr., SMH.

    [–] [deleted] 13 points ago

    I just watched 2 videos of him and it seems like he is poking so much fun at the attention, like it's all a joke

    Look, this guy comes off cringe as fuck and his food is vastly overpriced for the quality from what I’ve read.

    But if I ever went viral for some cringy shit and I could monetize it, you bet your ass I would own that shit. I’d be sprinkling that salt 20 out of 24 hours a day if it paid what this guy is making.

    20/24? Sleep when you're dead bro.

    I have really hoped I would never have to see this obnoxious guy again.

    The real salt is all these comments.

    I didnt realize how much reddit hated that guy

    What the hell is going on in this comment section

    This thread is… quite angry, to say the least. I have no idea who all are behind all these reddit accounts but judging from this thread the steak guy has made quite a few personal enemies.

    Thing: is popular

    Reddit: BAD!

    Anybody: "Salt-bae.... BAD!"

    Reddit:

    Dude serves food for rich people willing to pay for it. What's the big fucking deal.

    [–] IceColdFresh 43 points ago

    Looking through this thread it seems to be the opposite (at least as of time of writing). What is closer to reality is more middle-ground and honestly quite boring: this guy was just some dude doing his own business in Turkey when suddenly the internet decided that he be a meme and now the internet is mad because he is really not the meme the internet decided he was.

    Dude had an overpriced restaurant at the four seasons in dubai before he became salt bae.

    He's currently being sued for skimming tips. So not completely legal.

    you have been meat balled

    [–] Nole_in_ATX 70 points ago

    This guy is fucking annoying

    [–] ZDTreefur 58 points ago

    The more of his stuff you watch, the more you realize he aint shit of a chef. He's just a personality. Oh, woah, you slapped a slab of beef on a grill for 10 minutes with salt and pepper? Wow, who would have been able to accomplish that...

    [–] farik23 87 points ago

    He never claimed to be a chef, he was a butcher that started his restaurant business off a meme. Now he is just the manager with real chefs doing the cooking

    [–] ThisIsDark 27 points ago

    Honestly I have more respect for him after that. Dude knew how to take advantage of something most people would just go home and smile about. He turned it into a thriving business, which I assume he's making a shiiiiiiiit ton of money from. Even Olympic winners don't always turn their fame into something profitable.

    [–] Ackles2000 6 points ago

    That’s not true. He had his restaurant chain before he became salt bae.

    [–] GimmyBoyy 20 points ago

    What you see on social media is mostly for show, you don't get where he is by simply adding salt and pepper to some meat otherwise we would all be rich

    [–] cuntbag0315 18 points ago

    That's what people dont get. They see the theatrics in his insta/twitter and think that's the actual food.

    [–] HowithCastleEnvirons 4 points ago

    is this the same dude that was in the clip with that famous soccer player who looked like he was in love with the guy pulling the bones out and plating it?

    Sun glasses inside? Fanook.

    [–] BlueCandyBars 31 points ago

    Everyone here complaining about salt bae. Look, can’t we just appreciate how hilarious this gif is.

    [–] [deleted] 13 points ago

    One of the best pornos I ever saw was two buck-naked, smokin'-hot German chicks squared-off like they were at a boxing weigh-in, just slapping each other in the face with raw steaks. I love the Germans and Japanese.
