Leo DiCaprio actually went to have his steak salted by the greatest meme of 2017

Full circle.

A FEW WEEKS ago, this man came into all our lives:

Ottoman steak 🔪

A video posted by nusr_et (@nusr_et) on

He was dubbed Salt Bae by the internet because of the glorious way he applies his salt at the end of the video.

It instantly became a huge meme

The man’s name is Nusret Gökçe and he’s a Turkish chef in Dubai.

His popularity has grown so much that he was paid a visit in the restaurant this week by Leonardo DiCaprio.

And he got him to salt his steak
