The internet is a wonderful place. Why is it wonderful? Well, that is because the internet has enabled numerous people to become famous overnight. Memes have been a great contributor to this trend. Memes have immortalized many people. Even ones very unlikely to ever shoot to the mainstream.
One such case is of this particular chef from Dubai. His name is Nusrat Gokce. Maybe you have heard of him? His bid to fame were his good looks and eccentric attitude towards seasoning food. Among the netizens, he is fondly known as the Salt Bae.
What did he do this time?
As we all know, Dubai is a place where you can find rich people scattered around every corner. So much so that if you were to throw a random stone towards the crowd, there is a high likelihood that you will hit a millionaire.
Therefore, in order to please these rich people of exquisite taste, Salt Bae has introduced a gold-plated steak. The dish is going to be a part of a family of other similarly extravagant dishes in his expensive restaurant.
The gold-plated steak you say!? I know, I know. It sounds crazy! However, this is definitely not a hoax. Plus, his background as a butcher and his seasoning skills give me enough confidence in the dish.
But, if you long for more concrete evidence, you don’t need to search far and wide. After all, in today’s connected world, one can easily find the reviews. So, I went on a search and found some real confidence inspiring reviews.
One of them read as follows:
“It is every bit worth the penny and the best steak I have ever tasted”.
“It attracted a lot of attention from fellow diners.”
I wonder what could be the cause of that one.
“The meat is also cooked and cut at your table in front of you with this sort of pantomime show from the chef.
“It starts off as a big brick of gold and “the show” finishes with the chef sprinkling salt down his arm and stabbing the knife into the table.”
In the end, the diner said, “It is great fun; the food was amazing. Very expensive and very “Dubai” too. It was a good experience but I wouldn’t be queuing up for round two so quickly.”
So, what is the price of this magnificent steak?
Well, the steak only costs a mere £268. Definitely a great deal for the money!
