LOOK: Arci Muñoz meets meme sensation ‘Salt Bae’ in UAE
Actress Arci Muñoz’s tour in the United Arab Emirates has found her crossing paths with Turkish butcher and chef Nusret Gökçe, the suave cook known as meme sensation “Salt Bae.”
Muñoz took to Instagram last Sunday, Nov. 10, to give fans a peek at her dining experience in Nusr-Et, a chain of steak houses owned by Gökçe.

Muñoz can be seen posing with “Salt Bae” in his signature look: sunglasses on, a white shirt, and a slick hairdo. Muñoz’s mother, Yolanda, joins in another photo. The actress also showed off her burger and fries meal.
Muñoz tried to sprinkle salt on her food “Salt Bae” style in one of the videos, while someone off camera, most likely her mother, told her, “‘Wag mo sayangin ‘yung salt (Do not waste the salt)!”
Gökçe became “Salt Bae” after videos of him went viral in January 2017 for his theatrics in serving and chopping meat, and his unique way of pouring salt.
