SALT Bae is back at his London restaurant Nusr-Et – and he's showing off some new moves in the kitchen.
Nusret Gökçe – who soared to fame and fortune after going viral online – has introduced a new ingredient to his pricey menu.
He was captured on film lining up a row of four avocadoes before chopping them along their widths with a single cut.
In a second clip, he prepares the Yeni nesil – or 'new generation' Burger.
The cook can be seen pouring molten cheese into the bun before cutting it in half.
The Knightsbridge restaurant is best-known for its hugely expensive steaks.
Guests will fork out an astonishing £1,350 for a Golden Giant Striploin and £1,450 for a Golden Giant Tomahawk.
A Golden Burger sells for £100 each.
Salt Bae left the capital in November to open his 28th steakhouse in Saudi Arabia.
SALT BAE RETURNS
He has documented his return on Instagram, with posts tagged to the London steakhouse.
One post is captioned: "London's new icon 2022."
Managers at the eatery said as a result of his busy diary, it's not known how long he'll stay in the UK for.
Bookings will likely soar with the chef's return – in spite of some deeply unfavourable reviews online.
The restaurant only has two stars on TripAdvisor. Out of 105 reviews, 62 diners – 59 per cent – said it was 'terrible'.
The site was previously forced to place a temporary lockdown on the Nusr-Et page after an influx of negative reviews. Many are believed to be fake.
'STEAK WAS TASTELESS'
One diner who visited in early January gave just one star, writing: "Food was terrible as well as the service.
"The steak was tasteless. Food was appalling. Highly not recommended. Just an overrated restaurant."
But another customer who ate at the restaurant just a week later said they'd enjoyed "great food and quality service".
"I know the taste of good meat and I have felt it tonight," the reviewer said.
"It’s not a cheap place, but you just have to be prepared."
Even Salt Bae's recent social media videos from the London eatery have sparked a divide.
Under footage of the burger, one user wrote: "Who tf wants a burger like that?”
Another wrote: “Use this comment as a dislike button.”
But others were far more positive, with one simply writing: "Wow."
There's also been criticism of how much employees at Nusr-Et can expect to earn.
Back in November, he advertised for a sushi chef who would earn just £14 an hour – less than a side of asparagus.
And a loo attendant would have to work for three weeks to be able to buy the signature gold steak.
However, one diner has claimed waiters turned their nose up at a £10 tip.

Matthew Hynes wrote on TripAdvisor that he'd had "better steaks at Wetherspoon".
"To top it off we got asked if a tip was possible by the server. When we offered £10 they refused it and shook their head," he said.
"Keep up the great act Salt Bae.”
