“1,356 people were served at the restaurant in Doha on Sunday. Here is a new record, thank you all,” Salt Bae wrote at 01:48am.
If people spent an average of $250 per head, the restaurant would have earned 339 thousand bucks in one night. Not a bad innings at all.
Videos posted to Salt Bae’s Instagram story show him preparing his signature meat dishes, while long lines of people queued up to get into the Doha restaurant. Other videos showed World Cup fans passionately eating and talking inside, wearing all sorts of costumes.
In other Salt Bae news, the Turkish titan has recently been snapped with Piers Morgan, “realized that we should open a new @nusr_et Restaurant in Mexico” and hosted the Spanish national soccer team.
Just another week in the life of Salt Bae. The 39-year-old is certainly a whole lot more than a meme these days.
