Salt Bae Hiring Chefs With Hourly Wage Equivalent To Price Of Restaurant's Mashed Potato

Salt Bae Hiring Chefs With Hourly Wage Equivalent To Price Of Restaurant's Mashed Potato

It's safe to say Salt Bae has really made the most of viral fame.

The 38-year-old - real name Nusret Gökçe - became a meme due to his unorthodox seasoning method back in 2017, and now he owns a global chain of luxury steakhouses, known for their impressive cuts of meat, extravagant presentation and eye-wateringly expensive menus.

However, while you might have to sell your house or join OnlyFans if you want to eat at his recently opened London restaurant, it seems his staff aren't getting a huge slice of the revenue.

The Knightsbridge restaurant is looking for an experienced chef de partie to join its team, offering up the 'highly competitive salary' of £12 ($16.35) to £13.50 ($18.39) per hour, plus tips.

To put that into context, £12 is what the restaurant charges for a portion of mashed potato.

So here's hoping staff at least get a discount on meals.

The job ad reads: "Amazing opportunity for an experienced Chef De Partie to join Nusret team in the new restaurant in London!

"As a Chef De Partie, you will be working with some of the finest ingredients from the UK and abroad in the one of the most famous steakhouses in the world.

"You will play a vital part in a large team and will support the Head Chef during service.

"To the successful candidate Nusr-Et London offers a highly competitive salary and excellent opportunities to develop a global career.

"If you're a Chef de Partie looking to work the famous steakhouse, send your CV, we want to hear from you!"

You'd think of all restaurants, Nusret London wouldn't struggle to find staff, but it seems even Salt Bae's much-hyped eatery is struggling with labour shortages.

The restaurant recently held three open recruitment days, but when an Evening Standard reporter headed down to check out the buzz, they were shocked to find nobody there.

The reporter wrote: "I am surprised to see no queues or crowds - in fact, there's not a single person outside eagerly clutching their CV.

"Maybe I've got the wrong day. I ask the doorman who tells me a few people had turned up over the three recruitment days, 'maybe, over 20,' he says in a slightly higher tone that makes me think he's exaggerating."

LADbible has contacted Gökçe for comment.
