Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro was recently seen enjoying a meal at the restaurant of Turkish chef Nusret Gokce, aka Salt Bae.
Red meat is all but a luxury for most Venezuelans who have to pay 14,600,000 bolivars for a small chicken. Salt Bae is known for his theatrical style of sprinkling salt down his arm, and he even got Maduro to copy his signature move as he gave him a souvenir t-shirt.
A university study published in February revealed that 87% of Venezuelans are living in poverty. As a result of higher food prices millions of people are forced to skip meals, and 72.7% of those reviewed for the study reported weight loss over the past year.
So when news broke that Maduro was dining at a restaurant that sells steaks that reported cost anywhere from $70 to $275, people were not pleased.
