First it was the Cheesecake Factory, and now, Taco Bell.. Why does Bangkok get all the good stuff before us here in Malaysia?!

Thai company Thoresen Thai Agencies’ CEO Chalermchai Mahagitsiri announced a few days back that they will be bringing in the franchise for the popular American Tex-Mex fast food chain to Thailand under its company Yum! Brands, and the first branch is set to open by early 2019.

It’s too soon to tell what the menu will look like at the Thai branch, but we’re evidently hoping for the Taco Bell classics – Nacho Fries Box, Doritos Locos Tacos, Quesarito, Crunchwrap Supreme, Freezes, The MeximeIt, Quesadillas, Cinnamon Twists and more!

Ich sag's mal so: an einem Samstag anstatt wandern zu gehen, nach Sofas in sämtlichen Möbelhäusern zu suchen – saudumme Idee. Ergebnis: stinkesauer auf den deutschen "Geschmack" und 4h kostbarer Zeit am A***. Mir wär jetzt nach Taco Bell. Is ja nicht jedermanns Sache, aber an und an lieben wir das Zeug schon. Was meint ihr? Let me put it that way: to spend your saturday in furniture store, instead of going hiking, pretty stupid idea. Result: we hate the german taste in sofas and wasted 4h of our time. I'd like to get some Taco Bell now. I know not everyone like it, but we do once in a while.

First established in California during the year 1962, Taco Bell now boasts over 7,000 franchises across the globe and it first penetrated the Asian market in 2003 when it launched in China. Come on.. Someone needs to buy the damn franchise and bring those crave-worthy Mexican favourites here to Kuala Lumpur now!
