Well if the name ‘Salt Bae’ instantly reminds you of a certain white tee and shades adorning chef known globally for his over the top seasoning skills then you guessed it, right folks, as Salt Bae Burgers is a brainchild of none other than Nusret Gökçe (aka ‘Salt Bae’), who became a social media sensation after he posted a video of himself stripping, slicing and then sensually salting a hunk of meat a few years back. Fast forward to today, Gökçe has successfully used his viral social media fame to grow his branded empire of steakhouses and burger restaurants around the world. Today, Gökçe operates over a dozen eateries, but his latest venture, named after his infamous moniker – 'Salt Bae Burgers' located in Dubai’s DIFC area is as popular as the man himself.
With a vow to become “world’s greatest butcher", Chef Nusret has already branched out with his acclaimed outposts from New York to London, and his burger joint, showcasing cuisine derived from the menu of its counterpart, is no different. A quick peek at the menu is enough to leave any burger lover salivating. The burger destination doles out a choice of nine burgers all served with fries.
When it comes to recommendations, our number one suggestion would be their eponymous #Saltbae Burger featuring a rich Wagyu Beef, smoked rib-eye patty, stringy caramelized onion, and loads of molten cheddar cheese. Though a messy affair, the burger checks all the right boxes. Slender Parmesan-dusted fries are another hit, as is the whole spectrum of sauces they come with.
Another great option recommended by Salt Bae himself on his Instagram is the classic ‘Wet Burger’, featuring a nicely spiced meat patty doused in garlic and paprika flavored tomato sauce. Unlike other giant burgers you get here, the 'Wet burger' is smaller, perfect for when you need a quick bite.
For those who tend to gravitate towards extravagant things in life, the 'Golden Burger' featuring a smoked rib eye patty with caramelized onion, aged cheddar cheese, and edible gold leaves is the perfect fit.
To drink, guests can opt for one of Saltbae Burger’s crazy shakes, which include indulgent options like Baklava, Oreo, and the Golden Saltbae Shake, all of which look like art and taste like pure decadence. There are four different varieties of fries on the menu; French Fries, Parmesan Truffle Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, and Onion Chips, along with a host of other munching options to please the fried snack-loving folks.
