Salt Bae is back in Dubai and he's already had a VIP visitor
HH Sheikh Mohammed was spotted dining at Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et yesterday…
Nusret Gökçe, aka Salt Bae, is one of the most famous internet sensations out there.
After going viral with that salt-sprinkling meme, the steakhouse chef has become legendary for the masterful manner in which he carves meat and fantastical way in which he sprinkles the salt afterwards. It has earned Salt Bae legions of fans, not to mention 15.3 million followers on Instagram.
And currently, the Turkish chef is back to check on his UAE restaurants (he has outposts in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai).
But he’s been sure to make the most of seeing the sights – and attending to his ‘gram game. Teaming up with another Dubai icon, the Burj Khalifa, he shared this iconic salt-sprinkling snap to his Instagram:

But it’s not been all fun and games for the superstar chef. He’s been back to work at his Dubai steakhouse Nusr-Et, and has already welcomed a very special visitor.
Posting to his Instagram story, Salt Bae was seen welcoming HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
We wonder what those two discussed?
Later in the evening, Salt Bae was back in the kitchen, posing up a storm with delighted diners and finishing their steaks with the iconic Salt Bae sprinkle.
Although we’re not sure how long the chef will be in town, we hope it’s long enough for us to go and snap that Salt Bae selfie…
