Grand Velas Los Cabos offers $25,000 taco

The world’s most expensive taco has debuted at the new Grand Velas Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for $25,000. Available at the resort’s Frida restaurant, the culinary masterpiece includes such premium ingredients as 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 two tacos, which are served on a gold flake-infused corn tortilla.

The perfect beverage to complement, a hand-crafted white gold and pure platinum bottle of Ley.925 Pasión Azteca Ultra Premium Añejo accompanies the tacos for an additional $150,000. The over-the-top taco and tequila duo for two people was created by the resort’s executive chef, Juan Licerio Alcala, who originates from Durango, Mexico.
