It’s official – Salt Bae’s signature sprinkle is fit for a King (and Queen).

Just when you thought we’d reached peak Salt Bae, the sodium sensation has added two more famous faces to his list of fans – the King and Queen of Jordan.

Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, the owner of the Nusr-Et steakhouse chain, was hosted by none other than King Abdullah II and his wife, Queen Rania, on a recent visit to Jordan.

The chef posted photos of the encounter to Instagram, thanking the royals for their hospitality and generosity – and even getting the King to imitate his trademark salt-sprinkling move.

Gökçe, who has restaurants in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai, shot to viral fame earlier this year thanks to his hypnotising Instagram feed, which quickly earned him the moniker “Salt Bae”.

A video which showed the chef sensually slicing up a steak, before adding a final flourish of seasoning, received over 10 million views in a matter of weeks.

Stars who have fallen under Salt Bae’s spell include HH Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces…
