Fans of Taco Bell, rejoice! Taco Bell, one of America’s most famous fast food joints, has opened its first restaurant in Malaysia and has officially opened its doors today, 2 April 2021! So now that it’s here, there is no more need to fly all the way to the U.S.A. when you can just drive down to Cyberjaya to have a taste of this Tex-Mex goodness.
“We are excited to finally bring this youthful and iconic brand to Malaysia, starting with our first Taco Bell outlet in Cyberjaya. The Mexican-inspired cuisine of Taco Bell is most certainly the best in the world from a restaurant chain,” said Harris Beh, Taco Bell Malaysia’s franchise operator in an interview with FMT. “The two-storey restaurant design features Taco Bell’s signature iconic styles throughout the building, from the rainbow-coloured Taco ceiling to our indoor sunroom with high glass panels.”
However, not everything about the building was copy-pasted from the U.S. Taco Bell Malaysia added local twist to the interior design by commissioning Malaysian artist Wilson Ng to paint a mural depicting Taco Bell’s tagline ‘Live Mas’ which means ‘Live More’.
Ankush Tuli, the managing director of Taco Bell Asia Pacific, expressed his excitement about Malaysia’s first ever Taco Bell outlet. “We are grateful to all our fans here who have been waiting for the brand to open in Malaysia and we are delighted to invite all of them to come and try our signature and iconic food at our first location at Cyberjaya,” he stated.
To add to the uniqueness of Malaysia’s Taco Bell outlet, a new menu item is available only in Malaysia! It’s called the Bell Rice Bowl – with seasoned Mexican rice, pico de gallo salsa, fresh lettuce, black beans, nacho chips, and with a unique Malaysian twist – our beloved sambal! If you’re worried about the spice, the sambal sauce is rather sweet and pairs perfectly with the chicken.
Below are some of the other menu items you should look out for and have a taste:
2 Kickin’ Chicken Tacos
Drinks: Summer Mint and Strawberry Delight
