I can’t explain why I feel this way, but I’m a HUUUUGE fan of people spending ‘fuck you money’ on the most mundane of things. $500 on shampoo? If you’ve got the money, and that’s what you want, spend it! That’s why I’m a bit disheartened to learn that there aren’t any rich playboys out there who have ordered the world’s most expensive taco…yet.
The world’s most expensive taco sells for $25,000. You can purchase this taco at the ultra-luxurious Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort in Baja, California. In order to purchase this $25,000 taco you have to be staying in the Presidential Suite at the Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort AND you must first put down a deposit of $12,500.
What exactly goes into making the world’s most expensive taco?
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.
A week after the outrageously pricey dish hit the menu, no one has ordered it, the chef admitted. via Yahoo!
Here’s what that taco looks like:
Shockingly, the $25,000 taco isn’t even the most expensive item that’s available for purchase the Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort. They’ve got a bottle of tequila, Pasion Azteca, which they sell for a cool $150,000 per bottle.
I’m not sure I can sleep soundly at night knowing there isn’t anyone out there with stones big enough to throw down $25,000 for tacos and $150,000 for tequila.
