Taco Bell – America’s most famous Mexican-inspired chain – is opening in London on Friday. Students of taco history will know that it had branches in the capital back in the ’90s, but it’s been a long 20-odd years. For anyone who has ever fantasised about going to the mall or snogging Ryan from ‘The OC’, this return feels like a big deal, because Taco Bell is weirdly entangled in our tweenage dreams.
Cheap tacos are its speciality (in the US it’s known for its ‘dollar menu’) and here it’ll be doing a sweet Tuesday deal where you get a single taco and a beer for just £2. The first Taco Bell location will be in Hammersmith, but more branches are due to open before Christmas in Holborn, Fulham and Croydon.
Taco Bell opens on Fri Nov 23 at 100 King St, W6 0QW.
