SALT Bae’s London steakhouse is known for its delicious food but also its extortionate prices.
The restauranteur and Instagram influencer, Nusret Gökçe Erzurum is in fact serving his customers, but just how much will a meal at Nusr-Et London set you back?
What is on Nusr-Et’s menu?
Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe Erzurum opened his London steakhouse on September 23, 2021, after first being announced in 2017.
Nestled in Knightsbridge, it is the UK’s only offering of the global chain, which has popular restaurants in New York, Miami and Dubai.
Nusr-Et is famed for its steaks, but it also serves a variety of other meat dishes, as well as sides and desserts.
The menu is divided up into sections, including salads, steaks, beef fillet, lamb, burgers, meatballs and sucuk – a Turkish fermented sausage.
Other unusual items on offer include onion flower, mashed croquet, a spoon salad and heart-shaped meatballs.
Restaurant goers can also choose beef carpaccio and marbled wagyu tenderloin.
