Instagram stars defend Salt Bae's £630 steak as they gush over chef's expensive menu
A PAIR of glam Instagram influencers have sprung to the defence of Salt Bae.
Sisters Ellie and Daisy O'Donnell splashed out on the chef's £630 steak – which they said was "something else".
It comes after a flurry of critical reviews of the Nusr-Et Steakhouse London in Knightsbridge in the South West of the capital.
The eye-wateringly extortionate eatery charges £9 for a single glass of coke, £100 for a gold-gilded burger and £60 for a single tempura roll.
The Evening Standard's restaurant critic Jimi Famurewa branded the eatery home to "the capital's worst burger" and said the restaurant wasn't worth the hype.
He blasted: "The one thing that won’t arrive, no matter how long you wait, will be the moment that anything at Nusr-Et Steakhouse London comes close to justifying the hype."
But luckily Huddersfield Instagram stars Ellie and Daisy were there to defend the chef – real name Nusret Gökçe – after followers accused them of eating at the restaurant just to take snaps.
The girls shared a video of their glam London night out to their 584.4k TikTok followers at the weekend.
Salt Bae himself acted as their own personal waiter sprinkling salt on their £630 steak in his signature style before slicing the giant tomohawk beast.
Ellie and Daisy captioned the video: "Best restaurant," adding: "Actually the food was something else,” with a heart eye emoji.
They blasted back after a follower quizzed: "Only go for the Insta pics and to take pictures of the bill."
Salt Bae opened his 15th site, and first London restaurant, in September this year.
He first sprung to fame in 2017 following a viral video of his tantalising salt-sprinkling skills which earnt him the moniker Salt Bae.
The Turkish butcher, restaurateur and human meme presides over a 15-strong global restaurant empire.
But Brits hoping to visit for dinner might be better advised to book a flight to the eatery in Turkey instead – as the trip would be cheaper.
A bill from Nusr-Et Steakhouse in the capital shows one hungry diner who paid out a whopping £1,812.40 in total.
And the restaurants don't even pre-warn unsuspecting customers beforehand – with no prices on the online menus.
The only item on the menu without cost is Turkish tea, which is apparently served for free.
