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

U.S. fast-food chain Taco Bell Corp. is planning a spiced-up expansion in Thailand as the company grows its global footprint.

 

The firms expects to open 40 restaurants in Southeast Asia’s second-largest economy by 2023, 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.

 

"What we think is hot and spicy in the U.S. is just starting off in Thailand on the spice scale, so we dialed up the sauces," Williams said in the interview Tuesday in Bangkok. "We’re starting first with Thailand, and then building the business model here and seeing what could translate to neighboring countries."

This from the OP photo kinda looks like the Loaded Fries item from the Taco Bell BKK menu I posted in the other thread...  Looks like a decent, heart and artery killing portion....

The photographs of these Taco Bell plates made me think about a Dutch plate with fries, onions, meats, mushrooms, paprika, cheese and peanutsauce, mayonnaise, red sauce and whatever else can be loaded upon the plate.....

Test have shown it to great for health and strength training.  Those who eat more spicy are usually stronger (they did tests in China). It has something to do with the capsicum. That said, not sure taco bell is healthy.
