Salt Bae, whose real name is Nusret Gokce recently posted a photo of a receipt costing Dirhams 3,98,630, which a customer spent for a single meal at his Nusr-Et Steakhouse in the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai at the Four Seasons resort.

Dated January 20, 2024, the now-viral bill shows that diners at Nusr-Et paid a staggering Dirhams 3,98,630 for food and Dirhams 9,0000 in tips.

“Money comes money goes,” the 40-year-old Turkish butcher, chef, and restaurateur captioned the receipt’s image on Instagram.

Looking at the bill, the unidentified customers enjoyed a variety of dishes, desserts, and drinks including coffee at Sal Bae’s famous Dubai restaurant. The diners indulged in beef carpaccio, salad, baklava, french fries, and fruit platter. They also ordered a luxurious meal of gold-covered meat as well as filet mignon and three steaks.

For drinks, the customers ordered four porn star martinis costing Dirhams 480, two bottles of Petrus 2009 costing Dirhams 1,98,000, one bottle of Petrus 2011 costing Dirhams 65,000, as well as five double glasses of the exclusive Louis XIII cognac neat costing Dirhams 27,500.

What shocked Instagram users the most was that the customers had to pay Dirhams 9,0000 just in tips. “In my opinion the service there doesn’t not deserve a 90k tips,” an Instagram user wrote.

Netizens also argued that the amount of money spent on the food was unnecessary. “Braindead consumerism at its finest,” a comment read. “Plain robbery,” a third person added.

“Imagine being this wealthy…..and then blowing it on overpriced food,” a person wrote. “I will just have coffee please,” a fourth joked.

“That would fed at least 100,000 children in hunger around the world! How embarrassing!” another Instagram user added.
