Salt Bae washes dishes in front of applauding staff in bizarre video stunt

By Tom Ambrose

Famous restauranteur Salt Bae has been seen helping wash the dishes at his London restaurant in front of staff who gave him a round of applause.

The strange video was shared to Nusret Gökçe's Instagram on Sunday, where the chef - more well known for charging customers ridiculous prices for their meals - helped out in the kitchen.

Posted to almost 40 million Instagram followers on Sunday, the restaurateur was seen cleaning plates, pots and pans while a group of his staff wearing face masks watched on.

The 60-second clip featured the song Unchain My Heart by Joe Crocker, while Salt Bae told staff: "Focus, clean, all the time."

In the bizarre video clip, the chef proceeds to throw his apron into the gathered staff, before lapping up the applause for what appeared to be a fairly simple chore.

Fans of Salt Bae took to Twitter to wax lyrical about the methodology behind the chef's dishwashing abilities.

One wrote: "How I think dishes should be cleaned."

Another said: "When the owner mingles with every employee of any designation and shows how smallest of the work is done, the company will rule the business."

Another person posted: "I wanna work for this guy."

It comes after the restaurant in London controversially advertised for a toilet attendant, with the low salary on offer meaning it would take three weeks for them to afford one of his infamous steaks.

The wages offered at the venue are only £11-an-hour which would take any worker three weeks to buy just one of Nusr-Et's £850 gold encrusted steaks.

Duties for wannabe employees, the restaurant says, include dealing with "various bodily fluids and, on occasion, dealing directly with the public".

The role only pays between £10.50 and £11.00 per-hour plus tips from customers who will hopefully be generous.

One of Salt Bae's customer's racked up a £37,023.10 bill which also included an additional 15% service charge of £4,829.10.
