Bae, real name Nusret Gökçe, charges £1,450 for a golden tomahawk steak at his Nusr-et steakhouse in Knightsbridge, London — the second most expensive restaurant in the world.

Gareth’s fare is on offer at the Absolute Bar and Bistro in Bolton — and he joked: “It’s more Morecambe Bay than Salt Bae.”

The dad of two paid £13 for 30 sheets of gold leaf and says the amount on his pies has been valued at 5p by a jeweller.

Gareth, 33, said of Nusr-et: “We read a review and thought it was absolute madness. So we decided to have a laugh with it.

“We’ve got traditional Lancashire dishes covered in gold for a fraction of the price.

“It just shows it’s not expensive to buy in — and it doesn’t enhance the flavour because it doesn’t taste of anything.”

Former butcher Bae, 38, shot to fame in 2017 thanks to a meme of him sprinkling salt dramatically.

He has celebs flocking for his signature steaks and £45 gold bunless burgers.

But Gareth said: “The joke is on customers if they’re willing to pay that. It’s just a gimmick.”
