Restaurant in Mexico Is Selling A $25,000 Taco
Chef Juan Licerio Alcala has created the world’s most expensive taco, in what we would assume is an attempt to trick rich dumb gringos out of their money.
The $25,000 taco is only available at Frida, a restaurant located at the Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort, which also has a $40 fish taco on the menu.
What exactly do you get for $25,000? One taco filled with langoustine, Kobe beef, Almas Beluga caviar and black truffle brie cheese. An exotic salsa comprised of dried Morita chili peppers, Ley.925 ultra-premium añejo tequila and civet coffee tops the taco which is served on a gold flake-infused corn tortilla.
The taco requires a $12,500 deposit.
And what beverage do they recommend pairing with those $25,000 tacos? How about the hand-crafted white gold and pure platinum bottle of Ley.925 Pasión Azteca Ultra Premium Añejo accompanies the tacos for an additional $150,000.
“People are excited and a little surprised about how you can eat a taco for $25,000 (497,000 pesos) when you can find one on the street for 10 pesos,” said chef Juan Licerio Alcala.
“Then I explain the delicacy, the technique and the harmony that they will lift from the plate, and that it’s worth it.”
A fool and his money are soon parted, but so far no one has actually ordered this $25,000 taco since they began offering it in February
Personally, we don’t trust anyone who pays more than $3 for a taco.
