Absurdly Expensive Versions of Fast Food

Tacos

Price: $100

Tacos are notoriously cheap. After all, how do you think Taco Bell has stayed in business for over 50 years? You know, other than potheads. At one point they had to explain they weren’t serving Grade D meat to their customers because so many people believed that it was possible, so we’ll assume their price helped quite a bit.

Café on the Green in Dallas, Texas, is trying to stay as far from Taco Bell as possible in both quality and price. They have three tacos for the staggering price of $100. Each taco is different: one is made with wagyu beef with micro cilantro and a truffle-béarnaise sauce; the second is the Hudson Valley Foie Gras Taco, which is made with duck meat and a Valrhona chocolate mole; and finally the third is made with Maine lobster, caviar pearls, and Aleppo chili. The tacos are served with a special margarita called the “4150,” which is made from Don Julio 1942 tequila, Cointreau triple sec, lime juice, and agave nectar. The restaurant also said that 20 percent of the profits will be donated to charity.
