Salt Bae is a Turkish chef and restaurateur who owns Nusr-Et, a chain of steakhouses. His art of cooking and preparing meat and also how he sprinkles salt on the meat became an internet sensation about two years ago.

In 2018, President Uhuru Kenyatta, while on an official trip to Dubai, also spent time with the chef. In 2020 President Ruto who at the time was Deputy President also met with the Salt Bae.

The Head of State at the time could not hide his joy when he met the famous chef and shared pictures and a video clip as he and his aides dined at his restaurant.

“This evening I interacted with Hustler Salt Bae, a Turkish butcher, who has created a successful hustle out of salt, nyama and a knife. Mahustler wa Kenyatta na Burma markets na wengine mko na compe na lessons hapo, mjipange. Kazi ni kazi, wìra ni wìra, mboka ni mboka,” he shared on his official Twitter page.
