How much would you pay for the world’s ultimate taco? Ten dollars? One hundred? How about a thousand?
We’re talking a super-duper deluxe taco made with Kobe beef, beluga caviar and served on a gold flaked taco. Sounds good, right?
If you want to try it, you’re going to have to shell out a whopping $25,000.
Grand Velas Los Cabos has just unveiled its newest offering, the world’s most expensive taco, which it is serving at its on-site restaurant, Frida.
In addition to the Kobe beef and Almas Beluga caviar, the taco is also stuffed with langoustines and black truffle brie cheese. No good taco is fully dressed without homemade salsa, and this one comes with a limited-time-only exotic blend made with dried Morita chile peppers and seasoned with Ley.925 ultra-premium añejo tequila and civet coffee.
And don’t forget that gold flake-infused corn tortilla.
You’re probably going to want to wash that taco down with some tequila. No problem, Grand Velas’ Executive Chef Juan Licerio Alcala has created the perfect pairing and recommends a hand-crafted white gold and pure platinum bottle of Ley.925 Pasión Azteca Ultra Premium Añejo. The tequila, though, is going to add a whopping $150,000 to your bar bill.
So, we recommend paying attention when Alcala tells you to sip your tequila and not shoot it.
The taco, tequila duo was created by Alcala, who originates from Durango, Mexico.
Frida is open for dinner from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Advance reservations are required.
