On the off-chance you’ve been hiding in a hole for all of 2017 (totally understandable, by the way) and haven’t met Salt Bae, let’s introduce you. Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe found himself suddenly internet-famous when a video of his unique salt-sprinkling style went viral.
We don’t know what an “ottoman steak” is, but we all liked the way he sprinkled it.
The memes came rolling in hard.
Meggy speaks for every student ever.
They rolled in so hard that there was a Salt Bae meme about the Salt Bae meme.
Soon enough, celebrities were getting involved.
Bruno Mars had a bit of fun with it.
But it was Jason Momoa who really took it to the next level. He borrowed a move from Salt Bae while prepping a rock climbing wall and decided to give the chef a shout out.
Enjoy the video of his climb.
