How come there is no Taco Bell here in the Philippines? Hahaha!!!

(McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Shakey's, Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Yellow Cab Pizza, KFC, CinaBon, all the big US based fast food restaurants are here except Taco Bell...)

Taco Bell is here I think in the Green Mall, there's at least two Taco Bells and one more opening soon all within the Manila area. https://www.google.com/search?client...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

For sure all this talk has made me hungry for tacos and I'm making tacos today a huge batch, I worked 4 years for a small mom and pop taco tex mex type spot in North Dakota, it's a lot of work but the meat comes out terrific, here's the recipe it's nearly the same as the restaurant but I've improved it some. https://www.expatforum.com/expats/ma...ml#post4416282

I would love to make tacos but where I am at I cannot get the shells, the cheese, the sour cream, and even hard to find lettuce. So I guess I could just eat the meat plain. haha

Try Lazada but good luck getting them delivered without being smashed. We've bought the Bambi Taco Shells at a local supermarket.

I use to go to Taco Bell 3 times a week here in the states. the prices have gotten so expensive here. If I eat off the regular menu it cost me around $10 to $12. they do have a $1 menu but it is very limited. At those prices I just go to Red Lobster or Olive Garden.

Just to get the small Mexican pizza with no meat is $5 plus $2.49 for a drink.

You can thank the $15 minimum wage for that.

Oh Has it raised that much?
A few years ago I saw at documentaries some states in USA had only 6-7 dollars per hour as minimum! (When Sweden had similar to 11 usd as the lowest.)
