There’s a new Taco Bell in Bangkok and I could not help but to try it during my recent trip.
Taco Bell In Bangkok? Yes Please.
I spent three days in Bangkok and promise I’ll shortly share all the details about my stay, including my arrival into Suvarnabhumi Airport, quarantine, and hotel hopping. I had a great time and after nearly three years it was great to be back in Thailand.
But today, just a shoutout to Taco Bell for its attempt to enter the Thai market. Last time I was in Bangkok, Taco Bell was not present. But on my way to the Grand Hyatt I passed the Taco Bell just a few blocks away.
I had to try it.

Wait. Come all the way to Thailand for Taco Bell? Are you crazy?
Yeah, yeah. I get it. But no apologizes for trying my favorite American fast food chain in Bangkok, just as I did in Tokyo.
The sad thing was the place was empty…I’m not sure Thais really want to shell out for (relatively) pricey American Tex-Mex when they live in a land of delicious food.
But I have to say I quite enjoyed my cheese quesadilla, beef taco, and nachos. A calorie bomb to be sure, but nice comfort food after being released from quarantine. It truly hit the spot and was cheaper than U.S. pricing.
So if you’re in Bangkok for an extended trip and are feeling a bit homesick, Taco Bell is open daily until 10:00pm and offers nice comfort food. You can also have it delivered via the Grab app.
For those who may be more regular travelers to Bangkok than I am, any good Mexican food recommendations while there? Wherever I am in the world, I’m always up for Mexican food.
