Grand Velas Los Cabos Debuts $25,000 Taco at Frida Restaurant

Grand Velas Los Cabos

The world’s most expensive taco debuts at the new Grand Velas Los Cabos for $25,000.

Available at the resort’s Frida restaurant, the culinary masterpiece uses premium ingredients such as langoustine, Kobe beef, Almas Beluga caviar, and black truffle brie cheese. An exotic salsa made of dried Morita chili peppers, Ley.925 ultra-premium añejo tequila, and civet coffee tops the taco. To top it off, or rather, holding all of these ingredients is a gold flake-infused corn tortilla.

To complement the taco, Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort suggests a handcrafted white gold and pure platinum bottle of Ley. 925 Pasión Azteca Ultra Premium Añejo, which guests can enjoy for an additional $150K.
