Diva Forever star Gemma Collins felt “bad” when she remembered how much she spent on steak at Nusr-et. Gemma Collins was flabbergasted when she was charged an exorbitant amount for a steak at Salt Bae’s new London restaurant.
Salt Bae, real name Nusret Gökçe, recently opened the highly-anticipated establishment in Knightsbridge and celebrities have been queueing up to visit. The Diva Forever star, 40, took to Instagram recently to share her experience at the internet viral chef’s place Nusr-et.
She was joined by her boyfriend Rami Hawash, 45, for a romantic dinner but Gemma soon realized her mis-steak. In a clip shared on Instagram, she filmed Salt Bae slicing the tomahawk steak and sprinkling salt using the method that made him famous.
The big piece of meat was also covered with a gold leaf to add a bit of luxury. Gemma had a wonderful time at the restaurant but later talked about the price tag that comes with the experience. She said on The Gemma Collins Podcast: “I have to give the ambiance of the restaurant, the experience, a 10 out of 10.
“The bill was another situation, I was in utter shock. But you have to weigh these things up, the press reported that my steak cost £700, if only they knew. “I wish it cost £700. It actually cost £1,450.” The GC went on to say how she felt “sick” when she woke up the next morning and remembered how much she spent.
She went on: “I went a bit over the top, but the only way I can justify it was that I haven’t been on holiday this year “I’ve been on a staycation, so we sort of had maybe all our holidays in one evening. It’s something I’ve never done before, I would never spend that money, but we had a good evening.
“Yes, we had 24-carat gold steak. I felt a bit sick. It was an amazing experience, I would have paid that to meet him anyway because I love him, and it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Gemma then started thinking about all the “people starving in the world” and felt “bad” about the experience. She went on to say how her favorite steak meal is actually the meal made by her boyfriend Rami.
