Turkish chef Nusret Gokce, also known as ‘Salt Bae’, is nothing short of an internet sensation. Ever since a meme of him sprinkling salt on steak went viral, Gokce was catapulted to instant internet fame. About 5 years later, the Turkish viral sensation has a chain of restaurants by the name ‘Nusr-Et’ at exotic locations all over the world. In September 2021, the London branch of the restaurant chain had created waves across the internet for its exorbitant prices even for the simplest dishes. And now, a video of ‘Salt Bae’ serving steak to British singer Anne Marie has got Reddit users divided. Take a look:

The clip was shared by user u/AbelNB in the sub-Reddit r/Cringetopia. It has received over 41.4k upvotes and 5.3k comments since the time it was posted. It was not a new clip and seems to be sourced from a YouTube video posted about 2 years back. “What’s so special about this,” questioned the user in his post.
In the one-minute-long video, we can see ‘Salt Bae‘ in his characteristic attire with a long sword-like knife. British singer Anne Marie is seated at the table and is waiting for the chef to cut up the steak and serve it. She is quite delighted to see the famous Turkish chef in action and even gets a chance to put salt on the steak like the meme itself.
Reddit users remained divided about the video. The Reddit community poured in its votes about whether the video was cringe or not. Take a look at the reactions to the post:
