“It’s also a game of my name,” said Ben Taylor, owner of Taylor Tacos.
The taco consists of a white corn tortilla lightly fried in sesame oil. of A5 Wagyu, black truffles, black truffle pecorino cheese and edible 23.75 carat real gold flakes.
“”[The ingredients] are all very unique, and each one has a flavor profile that goes so well together that it makes for a rich, buttery, and simply amazingly delicious taco, “said Taylor.
Taylor said he ordered these ingredients from around the world – the black truffles from Europe and the Wagyu steak from Japan.
Wagyu, which literally means Japanese cow, is praised for its marbling, which gives it a buttery and rich taste that melts in your mouth.
The meat is also rated “A5” which is the highest quality possible and has been described as the most luxurious beef you can buy, according to Crowd Cow. A USDA Prime is roughly an A2 or A3.
The meat could also cost up to $ 200 a pound, or up to $ 30,000 for the whole cow.
“I was lucky enough to try A5 Wagyu [at Cowford Chophouse] … and my best friend and I decided we should try to make a taco out of it at some point, “said Taylor.” Something really over the top. And offer a unique experience that you won’t get anywhere else. “
