A few days ago, a video of a charming chef cutting his steak and seasoning it blew up on the Internet. The video had all the complete ingredients to make it viral – one good looking, sexy chef; a scrumptious looking steak; some snazzy looking knife skills; and 10 cups of the chef’s beaming confidence. But ultimately, it was his salt-throwing skills that swooned viewers. Basically, everyone lost their mind over his OTT salt-sprinkling moves. If you’ve no clue what we’re talking about, watch the clip here:
Seriously, who throws on a piece of meat and manages to look good and sexy at the same time?! Naturally, thousands of memes followed and everyone had their own interpretation of this chef’s slick moves. A name was given to this mysterious guy with the hashtag #SaltBae.
So, who is he? Well, he’s actually a Turkish meat mogul named Nusret Gökçe and owns a chain of steakhouses in Turkey called Nusr-Et. He’s like the don of homegrown steakhouses.
Not only is he good looking, we believe he’s also married with kids that look like the next cast for Cheaper by The Dozen 3
. Sorry girls, but you still can have a crush on him.
His stylish looks and suave moves may be attributed to his love for The Godfather
movie series. He has this signature smirk on his face (as you can see in ALL of his pictures) and charisma that’ll make you either love him or hate him.
Nusret previously already has a large following on Instagram and due to his overnight fame, he now has over 1.1 million followers! Oh, and did we mention that he's friends with a handful of football superstars that frequently hang out at his restaurant? Here are a few photos of him with Mesut Ozil, Manuel Neuer, and Lukas Podolski.
There may be plenty of chefs and steakhouse owners in the world, but there can never be one like you, Nusret. Here’s to being completely comfortable with yourself and may your salt-sprinkling moves dazzle us forever.
