If you’re a foodie, you probably know it isn’t cheap to be one. Today, food is more than just something you eat, it has become an experience.
But how do you kick-up a Mexican dish that has become so common, it’s so easy to grab and go? You put in lavish and exquisite ingredients and serve it in an outrageous food presentation.
So much for presentation, the world’s most expensive taco is served in the middle of a literal desert while you are encircled by raging motorcycles.
Chef Juan Licerio Alcala created the insane dish at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort hotel in Baja California, Mexico. It costs a whopping $25,000 or 1.2 million worth of Philippine money.
This taco is no easy “grab and go” because you have to put in a deposit of $12,500 ahead of time. Plus, you have to stay in the hotel’s Presidential Suite before your order is accommodated.
Let’s go over all the lavish ingredients that made it so outrageously expensive. First, the corn tortilla is speckled with 24-karat gold flakes.
It is then filled with tender Kobe beef, langoustine shrimp, the world’s most expensive Almas Beluga caviar, and black truffle Brie cheese.
The salsa on top has Morita chilies and civet coffee; that is coffee made from the fermented poop of an animal named Civet that eats coffee berries.
And how do you finish it all up? Give it some good pieces of gold flakes, of course.
