15 Delicious Reasons To Visit Taco Bell Around The World
Fun fact: there are close to 300 Taco Bells outside the U.S. That means your favorite Crunchy Tacos can be found in 26 countries around the world. But opening up a Taco Bell in a country where most people have never tried or heard of Mexican food isn’t easy.
So to make the first-time Taco Bell experience for customers in other countries effortless, our international restaurants offer unique products that will immediately appeal to the locals. These one-of-a-kind menu items incorporate forms and ingredients familiar to the culture which might cause you to be like ??? at first, but the people of that specific country will be like !!!. So if you’re looking for a reason to get up and travel the world already, we have 15 delicious reasons right here:
1. Chicken Tikka Masala Burrito (India)
Tikka Masala is a traditional Indian dish. So in Taco Bell fashion, we decided to transform it into a burrito. Grilled Chicken, Mexican Rice, Onion, Cilantro Mix and Tandoori Mayo Sauce all wrapped in a grilled Flour Tortilla. Bring your appetite.
2. Kimchi Quesadilla (Korea)
Kimchi is a spicy, traditional Korean side dish made from fermented seasoned cabbage. To add a local flavor kick, this Quesadilla has Spicy Chicken, Kimchi and a melted Cheese Blend. So much yes.
3. Chocomarsh (Spain, United Kingdom)
Spain is all about small, shareable food items called “tapas.” With that in mind, the Chocomarsh is basically a mini dessert Crunchwrap filled with gooey Marshmallows and melted Chocolate. They look so cute (and tasty).
4. Shrimp and Avocado Burrito (Japan)
Because Japan is an island country, it’s known for its seafood. Burrito newbies in Japan will enjoy the familiar taste of Marinated Shrimp, cool Avocado Guacamole, Fiesta Salsa, crisp Lettuce and Wasabi Mayo all wrapped up in a grilled Flour Tortilla. Looking at you, seafood lovers.
5. Gordita With Fries And Tzatziki Sauce (Cyprus)
In Cyprus, Tzatziki sauce is pretty much the equivalent to ranch dressing in the U.S. People put it on EVERYTHING. So why not make a Gordita with Grilled Chicken, Tzatziki Sauce, golden Fries, Lettuce and Fiesta Salsa cradled in a Flat Bread? Totally OK with this beautiful creation.
6. Doritos Locos Nachos (Dominican Republic)
As you can tell by now, Taco Bell isn’t afraid to get innovative in other countries, too. These nachos include Nacho Cheese Doritos® Chips, warm Nacho Cheese Sauce, Seasoned Ground Beef, Sour Cream and diced Tomatoes. This is genius. Pure genius.
7. Beer + Taco (Spain, Korea, Japan, United Kingdom, India)
Spain is a very social culture when it comes to food and drinks. If you go to a Taco Bell in Spain around 10:00 p.m., you can expect a nice, lively crowd for the popular Beer and Taco Supreme Deal for under two Euros. Doesn’t get much better than tacos, beer and friends.
8. Taco Pizza (Spain)
Meet the Mexican Pizza’s big brother: a triple layer of Tostadas, Nacho Cheese Sauce, Seasoned Ground Beef and topped with a melted Cheese Blend, Salsa and Tomatoes. All of it. We want all of it.
9. Taquito Lupita (Spain)
Desserts are huge in Spain. Huge. So Taco Bell Spain answered back with fried Flour Tortillas topped with Cinnamon Sugar served with Soft Serve Vanilla Ice Cream and a Dulce de Leche Sauce. Muy delicioso.
10. Banurrito (Cyprus)
The Banurrito is a fresh Banana coated with Nutella®, wrapped in a toasted Flour Tortilla, showered in Chocolate Sauce and topped with Rainbow Sprinkles. *Buys plane ticket to Cyprus*
11. Chocodilla (Guatemala, Costa Rica, Colombia, Dom Rep, El Salvador, United Kingdom, Spain)
Guatemala is known as the birthplace of chocolate. Let’s take a moment to thank the wonderful country of Guatemala for discovering such a beautiful, beautiful thing. Let’s also take a moment to stare at this photo of the Chocodilla containing melted Chocolate Chips inside of a warm Flour Tortilla.
12. Loaded Fries (United Kingdom, Korea, Japan)
These seasoned fries are loaded alright. Topped with our classic Seasoned Ground Beef, warm Nacho Cheese Sauce, cool Sour Cream and Pico de Gallo Salsa to share...or not to share.
13. Beefy Cheddar CHEETOS® Crunchwrap Slider (Canada)
This Canadian gem contains Seasoned Ground Beef, warm Nacho Cheese Sauce, Shredded Cheddar Cheese and Crunchy Cheddar Jalapeño CHEETOS® all perfectly wrapped in a grilled Flour Tortilla. Did we mention CHEETOS®?
14. Fiesta Fries Burrito (Chile, Costa Rica)
Think Loaded Fries, but portable. This soft Flour Tortilla is filled with Seasoned Ground Beef and stuffed with Fries, warm Nacho Cheese Sauce, Reduced-Fat Sour Cream and Tomatoes. You had me at FRIES IN A BURRITO.
15. BBQ Pork Quesadilla (United Kingdom)
This messy, yet yummy, Quesadilla is packed with Pork Carnitas, BBQ Sauce and a Three-Cheese Blend wrapped in a Flour Tortilla and grilled into a melty masterpiece. NOM.
