Man Recreates Salt Bae's Iconic £1,450 Golden Steak For Just £64

A man on TikTok has revealed how you can save a hell of a lot of money but still pretend like you're at a Salt Bae's London restaurant.

The iconic restaurateur has been attracting a lot of headlines lately about the outrageous menu at his new Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Knightsbridge, with a golden tomahawk steak costing a casual £1,450.

If you can't afford that incredible price for a sparkly piece of meat then you can do it at your home for a fraction of the cost.

Harrison Webb has uploaded a video of him getting all the ingredients you need to recreate Salt Bae's steak.

The TikTokker grabbed some butter, thyme and garlic less than £4 and then he picked up the main event, a 1.4kg cote de boeuf (aka a tomahawk steak) for £32.92.

That's still a big amount for a single piece of meat, however when you compare it to £1,450 then it's a drop in the ocean by comparison.

Then he managed to get two sheets of edible gold wrapping that cost just £28. It's unclear if this gold wrapping is the same 24-carat that you get at Salt Bae's joint.

Harrison explained to people how you throw all that together: "Salt it. Sear it. Baste it. Then finish off in the oven. Let it rest while you cover in it gold."

Once it's covered in gold then it's ready to be served with a few sides, but you'd definitely want an empty stomach as a tomahawk is a big piece of meat.

The grand total for doing his at-home Salt Bae golden tomahawk ends up being £64.22, which is pretty bloody good.

Loads of people will probably be like 'well, of course it would be cheaper to have at home, you're paying for the experience', and they're totally not wrong.

Restaurants and pubs will all have big markups on the things they sell to ensure they make a profit, but if you know you'll never be able to sit down at Salt Bae's Nusr-Et Steakhouse and get the real deal, then this is always a good makeshift option.

But the people who are able to afford a steak like that clearly don't mind having a big night.

Diners at the Knightsbridge gaff recently shared a photo of their receipt, showing their meal came to a total of £37,023.10.

The group ordered a Golden Tomahawk for £850, 16 portions of Nusret Baklava and four portions of Golden Baklava baklavas for £400, along with a few helpings of fries.

Not content with a couple of glasses of the house red, this lot also went for a 1996 bottle of Petrus, which set them back £9,100, and a couple more bottles of the Petrus 2003, which came to a grand total of £19,900.

Oh, and on top of that, they picked out a 2006 Dom Perignon rosé for just £1,620 - meaning they splashed out £30,620 on booze alone.

But it wasn't just the bevs that helped rack up that huge total, as there was also a pretty hefty service charge of £4,829.10 lurking at the bottom.
