The Caviar In This Taco Alone Costs More Than Most People Make In A Year
If you’re like most people, you probably have an extra $25,000 laying around the house. You could use that money to put a down payment on something like a Lambo, buy hundreds of egg incubators on “Pokemon Go,” or burn it in your oversized fireplace to keep you warm on a cool evening.
If you have $25,000, you can spend it on the world’s most expensive taco.
Just kidding, this is actually the $25,000 taco:

Created by Chef Juan Licerio, the world’s most expensive taco comes with an array of decadent toppings fit for a king. For starters, the tortilla itself is made with flakes of 24-karat gold. And that’s just the start. As Neatorama reports, the taco comes with several choices cuts of meat: Kobe beef and Norwegian lobster. It also stuffed with black truffle brie cheese, Almas Beluga caviar — the world’s most expensive caviar — and it is served with morita chile salsa and civet coffee.
The taco is currently only available at the Grand Velas Los Cabos hotel in Mexico.

Chef Juan Licerio knows there are cheaper tacos available, but he stands behind his creation.

“People are excited and a little surprised about how you can eat a taco for $25,000,” Chef Licerio said in an interview, “when you can find one on the street for 10 pesos.”
But if you can’t make the trip, and you can’t get $25,000 from your couch cushions, there are actually “gourmet tacos” that won’t set you back the price of a BMW.

If you’re in Los Angeles, you can try tacos with high-end ingredients at Guerrilla Tacos, and you won’t have to take out a loan for ’em.
Or if you get a little drunk, any taco in the world is the most delicious taco in the world, regardless of price.
