Salt Bae, the famed steak chef stirred controversy by sharing a receipt of $108,500 for a solitary meal at his Dubai restaurant last week. The 40-year-old Turkish chef, known as Nusret Gokce posted on Instagram stating, "Money comes money goes," alongside a video displaying the receipt. Online users contended that the substantial bill is an affront to hard-working Turks grappling with a 60% surge in inflation and a 10% unemployment rate, as reported by Newsflash. 

The patrons at Salt Bae's Nusr-Et Steakhouse Dubai, located at the Four Seasons resort, indulged in a meal comprising beef carpaccio, French fries, salad, baklava and fruit during their visit on Saturday, Jan 20.
