There’s a Taco in Mexico That Costs the Same as Some Cars
Have you ever had to decide between a taco and a new car? Well, now you can! A chef at the Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort has created a taco that cost $25,000 dollars or 497,000 Pesos.
According to Yahoo! News, the expensive taco is made with a gold-flake infused tortilla along with other fine ingredients:
To make the over-the-top dish, the chef takes a corn tortilla speckled with 24 carat gold flakes and fills it with Kobe beef, shrimp, Almas Beluga caviar and black truffle Brie cheese.
The taco is dressed with a salsa based on Morita chiles and civet coffee, a pricey liquid made from the fermented droppings of a civet which has eaten the berries of a coffee plant.
For good measure, gold flakes are sprinkled on top.
Now, in case you’re thinking of dining and dashing, it’s not going to happen. According to Yahoo!, before you order the taco, you first have to be staying in the Presidential Suite and must put down a deposit of $12,500.
So far, no one has purchased the entree.
