Video of Salt Bae mutilating baguette in name of gastronomy goes viral for sheer nonsense
Is America the land of opportunity or what?
Guy weirdly sprinkles salt on a plate and he’s rewarded with 39 million Instagram followers, a net worth of $ 50 million, restaurants in the world’s most expensive cities, customers willing to pay $ 15 for a Red Bull, and a bloated sense of self-worth.
Mr Bae has already gone viral this week after a customer at London’s Salt Bae restaurant, Nusr-and Steakhouse, posted a photo of his $ 2,457 dinner for four. The bill included four Red Bulls for $ 59.66 and a gold leaf tomahawk steak for an $ 854 bonkers.
English chef Tom Kerridge, who owns the first pub to hold two Michelin stars, reacted to the Salt Bae viral craze with a sign outside one of his restaurants.
Salt Bae must have been a leper in a previous life, as another clip went viral of the chef building what can best be described as “Drunk at 3am and just got out of it. grocery store”.
And I have absolutely no idea what this monstrosity is but I can guarantee it’s two months rent.
He doesn’t even cut bread. Just tear it apart like it’s gonna feed a bird

I just realized that the salt goes past his CHARRU (and maybe sweaty) arm before the food pic.twitter.com/h9MRi6DX8S

On some level, I respect Salt Bae for capitalizing on his five minutes of viral fame more effectively than anyone in the story, but it’s still incomprehensible to me that people think this is good food. https://t.co/4ilcyCViik

America. Land of opportunity indeed.
