Damn, looks like the menu is missing all the  bean only options?  Bean burrito, tostada etc.  Sad!

Maybe they'd do it as a special order request...  Be interesting to find out...  But still probably pay the higher menu price for a meat item.

 

Actually, now that you mention it, they probably should have had some kind of vegetarian option for their various entree items...for those who don't eat meat period....

Hi Rick! Our menu will have many items Taco Bell is famous for, including Crunchy Tacos, Crunchwrap Supremes, Quesadillas and Burritos. But we’ll also have some unique items made especially for Thailand that will definitely be worth trying! Check back as we’ll reveal more over the next few days!

Please think about my question before sending me the stock answer. I want to eat at taco Bell and so do my vegetarian and vegan friends. . I'm asking if the bean are vegetarian? Are there vegan substitution as there are in the
USA. Thanks for your time and reasonable answer. 🙂

I'm not sure I'd take that as a YES or NO answer to your question.

 

More like, the usual Thailand business gibberish from someone who probably doesn't have a clue as to the actual question you're asking....

 

You might have told the chatter, hey, I've already seen your menu, and I don't see any vegetarian choices on it!!!

 

BTW, when I was there over the weekend, I popped in and asked a couple of English speaking managers who were there whether they had any actual printed or paper menu I could look at. And at  least at that point, they said they didn't have any printed menus. And told me to look to their menu board behind the counter, which is what I posted the photos of earlier in this thread.

 

Long way round of saying, I'm not sure their overall menu options are going to include anything beyond those things that you can see listed on the menu board behind the counter.

Think Taco Bell Is Spicy? An Even Hotter Version Is Coming to Thailand

 

The firms expects to open 40 restaurants in Southeast Asia’s second-largest economy by 2022, Liz Williams, the president of its international division, said in an interview. The first is due to open in Bangkok on Jan. 24 and flavors in offerings such as tacos and burritos have been tweaked to suit local tastes.

Suspect this'll go the way of other foreign food fancies here? Crowded for a few weeks, maybe another shop or two opens, then closed in a year. Who remembers that coffee bun craze back in the day?

the stuff on that picture menu don't look like any Taco Bell I've ever seen and I'm talkin' about 1968...granted the last time I ate there was In Philadelphia in 2006 when on business and then it was 'red and green bean burritos, please and two regular tacos, extra sauce, ta...' everything same same but a lot more expensive than I remembered...that order cost nearly $10...

 

and then the large black counter woman said ''ta'? would that be like in oo la la or as in cha cha cha?' she had trouble understanding my acquired UK east midlands accent...but she was very friendly...

 

Mississippi Fred Mcdowell singin' 'I went down to de fancy restaurant and looked at de menu and I throwed it away...and then I got to thinkin' 'I'll try Taco Bell today'...'

I think it'll do fine, yes crowded for a few weeks and become normal traffic once the craze tapers off. I think there is a high demand for mexican food, and this is a "budget" friendly option compare to others such as La Monita, etc. The company behind it has substantial amount of money, so I don't forsee they will have cash flow problems.

I will be paying a thai to stand in line the day before.. Or maybe even 2 days before.

Have there been any recorded deaths attributed to dining solely on taco bell for 12 months?

Watch out "Sunrise Tacos"......

 

 

sunrise taco has nothing to fear as their food promotes morbid obesity while that of taco bell pre-morbid obesity.
