The Argentine World Cup hero’s ravioli is £39.20 albeit it is filled with lobster.

The 35-year-old PSG ace also sells a £30.90 Ballon d’Or chocolate dessert.

Fans said they’d only pay for it if the former Barcelona great was serving it up.

Spanish influencer, Monica Moran visited his Hincha – which translates as a supporter – restaurant in the five-star MiM Hotel, in the tiny principality of Andorra.

Monica shared a clip of her trip with her 9.4million TikTok followers.

The video went viral with 13.8m views.

Monica said: “We ordered a pizza to share and it was really good.

“They came to show us the meat they were going to make us, and the truth is that it was 10 out of 10, incredible.”

To finish, the group decided to order the football shaded pud in honour of his record seven best football in the world titles.

Monica described the sweet treat as “a very strange mixture”.

She added: “Although it was very pretty, inside it was just cream, peanuts, popcorn, and marshmallow.”

But fans were left bemused by the prices.

One said: “The macaroni is €21… Is Messi coming to prepare it? Hahaha.”

Samir remarked: “If Messi doesn’t bring my food to the table and sit down with me to eat.

“I don’t want anything.”

Alejo wrote: “I’m going to sell my grandmother’s house, but I’m going, I’m going.”

Another fan joked that it would cost “two kidneys, eight lungs and two hearts.”

Unearthed footage of Messi visiting Salt Bae’s Dubai restaurant emerged following the outlandish Turkish chef’s World Cup final stunt last year.

The celebrity chef was slammed for pestering Argentina’s talisman for a selfie on the pitch in an embarrassing display following the nailbiting shootout in the tournament.

The Turkish cook and Instagram star – real name Nusret Gökçe – was filmed grabbing Messi by the shoulder at least twice.

Messi tried to shrug him off before finally agreeing to pose for a picture.

However it was not the first time they had met.

Video shows Messi eating at Gökçe’s Dubai steakhouse with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo and a pal in November 2018.

Barcelona forward Messi gives the chef a hug and shakes his hand as his table gets the full VIP treatment.

After theatrically slicing their steak, Salt Bae nvites Messi to sprinkle salt over it.

Then other diners cheer and clap as the chef feeds a slice of meat into Messi’s mouth using the tip of his knife.

He also grinned while posing for a picture with Gökçe and former Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba, who dined there the same night.

At the time the two stars were on a break from international duty.

Another video showed them deep in conversation – sparking transfer speculation as Pogba urged Messi: “We have to play together”.

Salt Bae’s restaurants are known for their exceptionally high prices, particularly their steaks.

Guests will fork out an astonishing £1,350 for a Golden Giant Striploin and £1,450 for a Golden Giant Tomahawk at his Knightsbridge eaterie.

A Golden Burger sells for £100 each.
