I dined at one of Salt Bae's restaurants but will never go back – the reason is shocking | The Sun
A FOOD lover has vowed to never again dine at one of Salt Bae's restaurants after being left disappointed.
Gustavo Tosta, who runs Guga Foods on TikTok, insisted he can make a steak that tastes just as good as the celebrity chef's – but with a smaller price tag.
He and a friend were left stunned when they realised it was going to cost a whopping $1,200 (£900) for just the two of them to eat.
Gustavo said in a TikTok video: "Here's the reason I would never go back to Salt Bae's restaurant.
"We arrived in the restaurant all happy and then we find out the price."
His friend can be heard saying in a clip from the eatery: "Holy s**t. $1,200 for two people?"

The pair ordered one of Salt Bae's famed gold leaf steaks but they were not impressed with what they dished up.
Gustavo said: "It just tasted like a regular steak so I went ahead and cooked my own.
"I seasoned it with salt, freshly ground black pepper and garlic powder. Then I went ahead and took it outside and cooked it on the grill.
"But I was missing one ingredient – gold. And guess how much this cost me. $8. And I was able to cover the whole steak with it.
