Salt Bae launches new drastically cheaper menu at famous London restaurant
| Last updated
Salt Bae has launched a dramatically cheaper menu at his infamously spenny Nusr-Et steakhouse in London.
The move may shock customers, who are used to the extremely pricey steak dishes which often attract controversy online as punters post their eye-watering bills.
The steakhouse has been at the centre of deep criticism since its opening for not only its prices but the extravagance of its dishes.
However, despite widespread criticism and being one of the worst-rated restaurants in London on TripAdvisor the restaurant has persisted, with bills the equivalent of a month's rent doing the rounds on social media.
But now, Salt Bae has offered a new cheaper menu option, presumably in the hopes of attracting more foodies with lower budgets.
To be honest, I'm not averse to the idea of paying a lot for a meal out in a restaurant. Some people drop hundreds of pounds on tickets to concerts or sports games, and big-ticket restaurants are another way to make memories. But it has to be good.
Anyway, guests can now enjoy a lunch of burger and fries for a far more modest £45, while dishes such as tacos are priced at £35. There's also a lunch menu at £39 per person, which includes a starter, main, and dessert.
He showed himself putting together the ‘Avocadoooo burger’ in an Instagram video, leaving social media users baffled at how the item somehow ‘manages to offend vegans and meat eaters’ simultaneously.
Burgers can be difficult to eat at the best of times, but just imagine the challenges of sinking your teeth into an avocado bun. Absolute carnage.
At the London branch of Nusr-Et, the Avocado Burger costs between £19 and £25, whether you opt for a side of herb-crusted fries or parmesan and truffle fries.
While some joked that it was a ‘super keto burger’ or that they'd have to 'sell their apartment' to afford it, others were just left confused by the creation.
One commented: “Somehow this video manages to offend both vegan and meat eating sensibilities at the same time.”
Someone else asked: “How are you supposed to eat that?”
