Vegans troll Salt Bae and his extortionate prices with cheeky stunt

"You don't have to win Squid Game to afford this."

A vegan food company has been trolling Salt Bae and his extortionate prices by setting up a food truck outside his new London restaurant and giving out free food.


For the past few weeks, people have been dumbfounded by the prices that Salt Bae - a.k.a. Nusret Gökçe - has been charging at his London restaurant, Nusr-et. Some of the highlights include £12 for sweetcorn, £11 for a Red Bull and £850 for a gold-covered Tomahawk steak.

So vegan food company THIS have launched a cheeky stunt outside Nusr-et, by handing out free vegan rolls to hungry passers-by.

With slogans on the side such as "you don't need to win Squid Game to afford this," the truck offered "gold baecon baps" containing THIS's meat-free product. A press release said they were happy to offer out the vegan produce to "financially bruised and hungry diners left disappointed with their Salt Bae experience."

THIS co-founder Andy Shovel said: "We felt sorry for all these people turning up for a nice meal and then being whacked with a massive bill. You shouldn’t haven’t to sell your kidney or left b*****k to have delicious food.


"Hopefully our baecon rolls helped a few people out and we’ve managed to show plant-based can be just as meaty."

The stunt comes days after a study found Brits are eating 17% less red meat than a decade ago, so THIS could be the future.

And charging £800 for a steak is enough to make anyone go vegan if you ask me.
