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:

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

The chef himself shared the photo on Instagram yesterday afternoon.

Real life memes, playing out in real time
