Salt Bae Fans Left Massively Confused After Hearing Him Speak For First Time
| Last updated
Ever heard Salt Bae speak? No, us neither. Until now, that is - here's a little treat for your ears... and eyes:
Salt Bae, whose real name is Nusret Gökçe, took to Instagram to post a video for his followers to watch where he's gushing about London.
In the clip, Salt Bae says: "Hold on, hold on. I wanna say something about London," he then pushes himself out on his chair and makes a rainbow with his hands.
The celebrity chef, who opened a new restaurant in the UK capital went on: "London is my big dream. Some day, next day, every day. All the time. I love London.
"London is different."
Someone holding the camera and filming him, asked how his English was coming along, to which he replied: "My English almost like a British."
Imitating British speakers, he said: "'You know'... 'cheers'," before adding: "Hope to see you soon London."
Responding to his post, people were rather confused with many explaining how it was the first time they'd heard him speak.
One person wrote: "First time ever hearing him speak," while another added: "He talks!"
A third asked: "What's wrong with your mouth man?!"
Someone else who was appreciative yet confused, quizzed him saying: "I love you but what the hell are you talking about?"
A few people would rather him keep quiet with one writing: "I liked this guy when he was silence."
Salt Bae told followers he hopes to see London soon as he left the UK on Sunday to open his 28th venue in Saudi Arabia.
This means he will no longer be making appearances at Nusr-Et, which is located in Knightsbridge.
Taking to his Instagram story last week, Salt Bae wrote: "Sunday is my last day in London. I will go to Riyadh to open my 28th restaurant.
"Sunday is my last day in Lovely London. I want to see you beautiful people before I go."
This would be charming if he didn't charge eye-watering prices for his food and really just wanted to drive sales.
He became a social media sensation thanks to his unorthodox seasoning method which came to light back in 2017. Now he owns a global chain of steakhouses.
