There is a strong relationship between popularity and price, believe it or not. The more in-demand something is... the more room there becomes to increase the cost of said thing. Just like eating at one of Salt Bae's 18 restaurants.
People visit Nusr-Et to get a picture for the 'gram of the man behind the meme - Nusret Gökçe - bouncing flakes of salt off his arm and on to their food. But that comes at a cost.
In a picture that recently went viral, someone shared their bill from the eatery and it's left many people gobsmacked.
Alright, alright - there's a lot of items on the receipt but the cost comes to a grand total of... $6,228.05 (£4,485.72).
We can see that there's a combination of fish starters, as well as a $10 Sprite and vegetable sides costing in excess of $15 (see '2 French Fries 30.00' and '2 Spinach 36.00').
But there's also a Tomahawk steak for $275 (£198) as well as a 'Golden Tomahawk' for $1,000 (£720).
According to Smoked BBQ Source, you can usually expect to pay around $100 (£72) for a quality Tomahawk steak.

Another shared a picture of the menu and the $1,000 'Golden Tomahawk' is described as a '24 karat gold coated highly marbled wagyu tomahawk'.
Stating the obvious, someone wrote: "This dinner party has money. People who complain or post receipts don't order $1,500 Le Brut or $1k tomahawk steak," to which another person replied: "Nobody said they couldn't afford it. Doesn't make it any less ridiculous."

Someone else wrote: "What's difference between golden tomahawk $1000 vs tomahawk $275?" $725, my friend.
Another commented: "You think I'll pay 6k and I won't make him feed me the entire time? It's right there, salt bae passion. Alaye better feed me passionately."
As Twitter went into meltdown, someone else noticed the $80 'spaghetti' (which is actually 'thinly sliced striploin') saying: "I better be able to speak Italian afterwards."
