We're drooling over this $25,000 taco

Expensive and taco aren't words typically associated with one another, but, as with most things, there is an exception.

A restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico has added a $25,000 taco to its menu, notes CNET.


The dish, available at resort Grand Velas Los Cabos' Frida restaurant, is stuffed with langoustine, Kobe beef, black truffle brie cheese, and Beluga caviar.

While there's no guacamole, there is salsa.

It's made from pricey civet coffee, dried Morita chile peppers, and Ley .925 uber-premium añejo tequila.

All that is served in a corn tortilla infused with gold flakes and topped with more gold.

While the price is steep, the taco is large enough to serve two.
