Gökçe is a Turkish chef who made rounds all over the internet a few weeks ago (and unofficially became the first viral meme of 2017) after uploading a series of videos of himself on Instagram.

His good looks, culinary skills and penchant for flair, especially with how he salts his meat, seems to have touched base with the internet and as a result, he’s since become an internet star, and has been dubbed as the ‘Salt Bae’.

The 2016 Oscar ‘Best Actor’ was at a table at the Dubai branch of Gökçe’s steakhouse chain Nus-ret when Salt Bae did his trademark move, even seasoning the actor’s meal himself.

Of course, Salt Bae took the chance of uploading a picture of the moment on his own Instagram account, and people reacted accordingly.

By that, I mean the internet just went off – like OFF!
