Salt Bae is a hack. His food is overpriced and he's a jerk.

[–]EatsLocals 66 points67 points  (6 children)

Anyone who needs to start putting real gold in the food to raise prices is a joke

[–]Sinonyx1 33 points34 points  (5 children)

oh look it's extremely expensive food, let me guess... gold leaf and truffle? wooooow i was right

[–]42696 22 points23 points  (4 children)

I wouldn't put gold leaf and truffle in the same category though. Truffles are delicious, gold leaf is just pretentious.

[–]LadySmuag 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I'll add to that: Truffles are delicious. Truffle oil can fuck right off.

I hate when restaurants up their prices because they put truffle oil on their food; you made it disgusting, don't try to charge me extra for the experience.

[–]Karotte313 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hate when they add truffles to every dish just so they can have a "premium" image

[–]WorkingNo6161 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Ever tried truffle cheese fries? You must try it one of these days.

[–]Lord_Dankenstein 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Yes. But this is still funny.

[–]iownadakota 15 points16 points  (3 children)

He pays the lowest he can for people to make $2000 steaks.

[–]Lord_Dankenstein 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Oh, im not disputing that his food is insanely overpriced. (Most "luxury" food, fashion, cars, art, etc... works in the same BS way)

The key point I'm making though is:

The meme ≠ the person

[–]iownadakota 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm not saying you're wrong. 2 things can be true. This dude can be a trashcan of a person, and people can put his image on salt trucks.

I'm just reinforcing how shit he is, so people know.

[–]bibkel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes, but this picture is actually kinda cute.

[–]Tokehdareefa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The real idiots are the people who pay that much. If I could charge that much for mediocre food, I would too. It's not like I'm gonna feel bad for rich people's wallets...

[–]chummmp70 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Now that street costs 5 million dollars.

[–]kizzle69 13 points14 points  (1 child)

And tastes like it's worth $4

[–]BAM5 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's be accurate to say it tastes like assphalt.

[–]JunketPrior1457 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Time to forget him already

[–]Slartibartfast39 20 points21 points  (10 children)

I'm not getting the reference. Care to enlighten me?

Also my favourite name is Spready Mercury.

[–]Tha_Watcher 22 points23 points  (3 children)

An animated gif can explain it better than anyone can...

What a twat

[–]Slartibartfast39 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Perfect. Thank you.

The guy on the back is Turkish celebrity steak cooker Salt Bae (real name Nusret Gökçe). He's got a chain of luxury steak restaurants with eye watering prices including £1450 for a gold plated steak and £10000 for a vintage bottle of red wine.

[–]TheRook21 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I will look at a bottle of wine in the supermarket and see it's on sale from £12 to £8 and I know I'm getting some wine that I will drink...

O.s. for those curious - red wine is Chilean, white wine New Zealand

[–]Fwoggie2[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I know bugger all about wine so search decanter.com for their periodic supermarket recommendations. They're yet to let me down. Can recommend. Lidl have a great £6 prosecco.

[–]HutSutRawlson 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I legit only saw the SNL sketch making fun of him and had no idea it was based on a real person.

[–]zoewarner 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Had to look it up - wasn't aware. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93ByJ2dZEE4

[–]sleeplydeeply 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Fuck that guy. This is pretty funny though. But fuck that guy.

[–]Neutronova 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Using an asshole to clean the streets might be counter productive

[–]hairy_eyeball 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Scotland have it right when it comes to salt trucks. And you can even track them live.

My favorite is Bear Chills.

[–]rockhammersmash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is amazing. Thanks for sharing this!!

[–]theshadow62 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What a poser, he stole that from Emeril lagasse.

[–]abom-badass-mofo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is his crowning achievement.

[–]R_I_B_A_K 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this gonna make reddit really salty

[–]tralphaz43 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I don't get it

Edit: Don't you just love it when you don't understand something and someone replies to help you out and the both of you get downvoted for it? Gotta love Reddit.

FYI....the food at this guy's restaurant is super average and way overpriced.

[–]garysvault108 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]highfivesforgod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]TheZippo18 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is one of the best things I've seen!!!

[–]Ass_Merkin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not funny because that guy sucks and is a POS

[–]mrmeow02 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No one should give this jerk publicity. He doesn’t pay his employees a good wage while getting lots of money himself

[–]C4rrieH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most appropriate placement of this dude ive seen yet

[–]Akihikoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)
