That's Too Much: The World's Most Expensive Taco (Costs $25,000)

March 24, 2017


In the world absolutely doesn't need that news, executive chef Juan Licerio Alcalá at the Grand Velas Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico has created a $25,000 taco. For reference, you could buy 25,000 regular street tacos for that, and still have enough money left over to fill a swimming pool with horchata, which you should.

the taco comes with langoustine, kobe beef, black truffle brie cheese, and Almas Beluga caviar. The tortilla is infused with 24-karat gold flakes and the whole thing is served with an exotic morita chile salsa and civet coffee.

Yeah, no. The only taco worth $25,000 is all-you-can-eat tacos for life, and you plan on living at least another eight months. "Jesus, just how many tacos do you eat, GW?" All of them. Every taco truck in town knows me by name, and that the Undertacor. Get it? It's like Undertaker except with taco at the end. "Oh we got it." Just making sure.

Thanks to Marcus O, who agrees if you're paying $25,000 for a meal, it better be your last.

    "...served with civet coffee."

    Nothing like a side of animal abuse to go with your pretentious asshole meal.

    Whenever I see stuff like this I always picture eating it in the most obnoxious way possible - like buying it then feeding it to my dog while slurping a rare Chateau Lafite Rothschild straight from the bottle and exclaiming "I can't tell the difference between this and that box wine" while sitting in one of those motorized hoveround scooters wearing a confederate flag snuggie.

    I like how you skipped over the fact that it comes with Civet coffee. I'm sure it's delicious and not poisonous, but no thank you.

    It looks like it's going to taste like pot-pourri.

    Need to lace it with cyanide. Anyone who spends $25K on a taco needs to give up their space on this planet.
