If a taco’s more than $7.99, I’m out. Also after reading the ingredients on this one, ew, no, pass.
The dish (created by chef Juan Licerio Alcala), starts with a corn tortilla that is speckled with 24 carat gold flakes. It is filled with kobe beef, shrimp, black truffle brie cheese, and Almas Beluga caviar. Toppings include, salsa made with Morita chiles and civet coffee — a pricey coffee gathered from… cat feces… (that supposedly costs $60 for 4 ounces of beans), them gold flakes are sprinkled on top for the finish.
This taco can be delivered ANYWHERE in the world –BUT- not just anyone can order it. You have to put down a $12,500 deposit in advance, and must be booked to stay in the presidential suite — which costs over $2,400 a night at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort.
The thing is, the hotel has yet to find a customer ready to drop $25,000 on this, world’s most expensive taco.
