You Can Buy the World’s Most Expensive Taco for $25,000
A resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, is offering a $25,000 one percenter taco that might make you drool with green-eyed envy. But don’t get too bogged down by first class FOMO: This pricey taco, available for two to share at the Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort, is nothing we haven’t seen before with uber-pricey approximations of cheap food.
Just like the world’s most expensive pizza ($2,000 at Industry Kitchen), ice cream sundae ($1,000 at Serendipity), and burger ($5,000 from Fleur in Las Vegas), the world’s priciest taco is topped with caviar, gold leaf, and truffle. More specifically, if you order this one-of-a-kind taco from the restaurant Frida, you’ll be treated to a gold flake-infused tortilla filled with Kobe beef, lobster, black truffle Brie cheese, and almas beluga caviar. The salsa is made with dried morita peppers, Ley .925 Añejo tequila, and kopi luwak — the latter of which is widely known as the most expensive coffee in the world.
“Our ultimate goal at Grand Velas Los Cabos is to break the mold of expected, traditional cuisine and go outside of the box for our well-traveled guests,” Juan Licerio Alcala, Frida’s executive chef, tells the Robb Report. “The taco is just the first of such exciting experiences that we plan to roll out in the coming months.”
For an extra $150,000 (because why not?), you can get a bottle of Ley .925 Pasión Azteca Ultra-Premium Añejo tequila, which pairs perfectly with the opulent treat.
