Stopped eating at TB in U.S. many years ago after getting sick twice, at two different locations.  A shame, because I loved their Meximelts.  420-friendly indeed!  But I'm willing to give it a shot here; though there's no way I'm waiting in a line like the one in the photo just for Taco Bell.  For late-night Mexican munchies, you're mucho mucho better off at the taco/burrito stand directly across the street from Nana Plaza on Soi 4.  Curious - is the new TB open 24 hours?  I live out near The Street Mall on Ratachada in Huai Khwang, where nearly all the fast food, cafes, and casual dining are open 24 hours.  Tace Bell would make a killing if they opened a location there.

Sophisticated Bangkokian folks dont eat there. You must be from Huay Kwang.

 

I eat off the street everywhere in Thailand except in Lower Sukh.

No Beef no Beans no Taco Bell.....No thanks......

The power of social media:

franchise owner Chalermchai “Kueng” Mahagitsiri promised to put meat back on the menu after the firm finds a suitable source. It was a reversal for the company, which had insisted beef was excluded from its first Bangkok store after “extensive market research.”

Extensive market research in Thailand means don't consult any farangs when considering 

opening a farang food enterprise.  Brilliant, as usual.  Where's the beef!!!

Anyone wanting to build a fast-food franchise in Thailand would be a fool to depend on the expat trade.

 

Taco Bell was full of Thais, not expats.

I don't cook. I like Texas Chicken. Much better than KFC.  

 

Their Mexicana Wrap is indeed delicious and I always get the extra mash or coleslaw for 10b. Total comes to 151b for 4 items which is indeed a good value considering you can get unlimited ice tea with your order.

 

How much will Taco set me up? 

 

Disclaimer. I really hate Taco Bell. I think it's the worst Mexican food ever and infact prefer sunrise tacos. 

 

Are you saying TB in Thailand is better? Unlikely, but I am ready to give it a shot.

 

 

A new Texas Chicken opened near me, and I'm not too impressed. I do like the wraps and the chicken sandwich was pretty good. I thought their chicken was bland and pretty dry, at least at the branch near me. What I do like, are the biscuits. If you don't a little honey brushed on the top, the rest of the biscuit was excellent. A little crunchy on the outside and good and moist on the inside, priced 6 for 89 Baht, a decent value. I take them home and put them in the freezer. Btw, outside the US, Texas Chicken is what is known as Church's Fried Chicken in the states.

When McDonalds opened in Thailand did they reinvent the wheel? No they just added a few Thai food items....

Even Sunrise Taco offers Beef and Beans and they are tiny...

Hell any one can down load a Taco Bell menu from the USA..

So they dont know how to do a google search for a Taco Bell menu?

For F sake man do it right or dont do it at all....

This'll last about as long as "the coffee bun" miracle in 2006.

 

Yum! will turn this place into a Long John Silver's before too long.

What a thread.

 

My review of Texas Chicken coming soon.

 

 

A new Texas Chicken opened at Ayutthaya Park Centre diagonally opposite KFC. It used to be a McDonalds site. so instead of a hamburger joint we now have two chicken places. My visits to McDonalds were about 3-4 times a year but trying to find any sort of hamburger [not chicken] in Ayutthaya now is a pipe dream.

Yeah, the biscuits are the bomb. Been a while since I've been there but I remember the coleslaw being good as well.
