$25,000 Taco Includes a Gold-Infused Tortilla and a Salsa Made From Beans Pooped Out by a Cat

As far as I’m concerned, there’s no reason to ever pay more than a buck for a taco. So I CERTAINLY won’t be spending 25,000 times more than that.

A restaurant at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico just added a taco to their menu that costs $25,000. So what makes it that expensive?

  1. A corn tortilla infused with gold flakes.
  2. Kobe beef, rare Norwegian lobster, and caviar.
  3. Black truffle brie cheese.
  4. A salsa made out of chili peppers, expensive tequila, and civet coffee beans . . . which are coffee beans that are POOPED OUT by a little cat called a civet.
  5. And gold leaves on top.

Even with all those fancy ingredients, I still feel like they’re making GREAT margins on this thing.

But if you’re going all-in, the restaurant also sells a tequila that goes for $150,000 a bottle.
