Deep South's "World's most expensive taco" to aid Puerto Rico relief

Chef-owner Richard Hamilton and his crew at Deep South Taco are pitching what may be the world's most expensive taco to aid Puerto Rican post-hurricane relief efforts.

On Nov. 2 at 5 p.m., Hamilton will be serving up a $50 surf-and-turf taco stuffed with luxe ingredients: Kobe A7 beef tenderloin, butter-poached lobster, Golden Osetra caviar, and Alba white truffle puree.

All proceeds will go directly to hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, via the Puerto Rico Hurricane Maria Relief Committee, he said in a press release. “This is a unique way to provide desperately needed funds to the people of Puerto Rico,” Hamilton said.

Deep South Taco's Cinco de Mayo Street Fiesta, at Ellicott Street between Broadway and East Mohawk, featured music by West of the Mark and Strictly Hip along with margaritas, … 

“We are working directly with the Puerto Rico Hurricane Maria Relief Committee on this event and encourage everyone to come downtown and show their support for our fellow citizens, whose needs are so great.”

If tacos aren't your thing, $50 could also get you a specialty margarita, the Copa del Rey (Spanish for King’s Cup), made with Herradura Suprema, Remy Martin XO, Cointreau Noir and Krug Brut Champagne.

There will be live music with Latin DJ on set from 6 to 8 p.m., along with a 50-50 raffle and silent auction.
