Cowed By Social Media, Bangkok Taco Bell To Add Beef

Recommended Posts

I didn't know that Taco Bell was here. When did that happen? Every Thai I know who'd studied in the US loved Taco Bell. A friend looked into starting one here, but Taco Bell was demanding one million baht just for the rights to a single franchise.

Really great advertising when no one even knows Taco Bell is in Bangkok. .

p.s. I once had tuna tacos at a Cesar Chavez fund raiser in San Francisco many years ago. They were great. So what's the big deal over beef?

A million baht per franchise is tiny tiny. A million dollars might be more like it, especially today

And no re fried beans either I think I read in a prior post somewhere 

How is one to have a Burrito grilled steak without the re fried beans. Oh hold the green paste..

In the States we call it imatation Mexican food.

The hot sauce is good for clearing out your system. Works better than exlax 555

Flashermac, they sell fish tacos in the States. Basically battered deep fried fish in a taco shell I believe. I don't eat fish, but the places that sell them, seem to do well

Yes very popular, and very good.  Very popular in bars.

Flashermac, a Cesar Chavez fundraiser?  Viva la Huelga!!

It's not the real thing, but it's better than what passes for Mexican in Thailand. I just avoid the things Taco Bell has invented and passes off as Mexican.

Hit Charley Brown's off of Suk Soi 19.  You might be in for a very pleasant surprise.
