These images show Mexican chefs making the largest ever meat taco before officially registering the 335-foot-long dish with Guinness World Records.
The meat feat was accomplished by a group of restaurant chefs if the city of Queretaro located in the central Mexican state of the same name.
According to local media, tourists and locals gathered in the historical city centre on 10th November to watch the chefs work their magic with 507 kilogrammes (1,118 lbs) of meat and 200 kilogrammes (441 lbs) of flour wraps.
After preparing the 102-metre (335-foot) meat taco, the organisers registered the achievement with Guinness World Records.
Alejandro Paredes Resendiz, vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce of Queretaro (CANACO), promoted the event and was responsible for registering the new world record.
He told local media: “We followed all of the requirements set out by Guinness. All the meat was fresh today, all the workers were properly attired and most important of all, we shared the food with everyone who came to attend the event.
“We are all very happy. I am the first person from Queretaro to be accepted in the book [Guinness World Records], but as soon as I receive the certificate, I will donate it to the city.”
