Neiman Marcus is known for its extravagant gift offerings, including complete meals made with fresh and fancy ingredients. Some of their Latin-inspired dishes, however, have been met with derision.
One of those offerings is an order of handmade tamales, originally priced at $92 and now on sale for $69. While that's way more than we're used to spending on the comforting corn- and meat-based cakes, the order does include a whopping 72 tamales. People are more upset, however, by the fact that a luxury retailer is selling a food that's typically associated with home-cooked meals or street vendors.
In addition to the conversation-making tamales, Neiman Marcus is also selling an enchilada dinner that includes six beef enchiladas and six chicken enchiladas for $54, originally $72.
While we're still scratching our heads at this one, we're curious to know how you feel. Let us know, below.
