World’s most expensive taco

Grand Velas Los Cabos resort in Mexico has created the world’s most expensive taco.  However, the  resort has yet to find a customer ready to drop NZD $37,000 (497,000 pesos) on a single taco.

The dish was dreamed up by chef Juan Licerio Alcala, who said he likes to think outside the box.

“People are excited and a little surprised about how you can eat a taco for 497,000 pesos when you can find one on the street for 10 pesos,” he said. “Then I explain the delicacy, the technique and the harmony that they will lift from the plate, and that it’s worth it.”

So what, exactly, makes it worth $37,000 – a price tag that gets diners just a single taco?

The dish stars with a corn tortilla that is speckled with 24 carat gold flakes. It is filled with pricey Kobe beef, shrimp, black truffle Brie cheese, and Almas Beluga caviar.

Sounds yummy?!

Why would someone waste their money on that. Use your money on like some new clothes or something. That is not worth a lot of money probably 100
