Taco Bell is now in Southampton!

An open plan kitchen, free refills and the famous laid back Californian attitude has changed the face of Southampton’s fast-food scene. Taco Bell has arrived in Southampton.

Compared to it’s southern Cali cousin, Southampton’s franchise has vibrancy and offers an alternative to the many burger joints across our city.

At the preview event guests were treated to a variety of taco treats off the menu and the food didn’t disappoint. By bringing out a range of food, Taco Bell encouraged people to try things they never would normally order.

Happy faces filled the room as the open-style food got everyone eating together and sharing things they liked. It created a really social atmosphere, with lots of laughter and cheesy taco jokes. Top that off with a cold beer, frozen cocktail and a chocodilla and I think Taco Bell had just stolen a place in our hearts.

Having spent a lot of time in California, Taco Bell was often a fun treat and a hangover rescue remedy. There’s a few things different with the UK menu, probably to suit our palettes but, on the whole the experience and taste was pretty much the same. Putting Kit Kat in the chocodilla was just plain genius though – do not leave Taco Bell without one!

Hats off to the friendly and welcoming team. They did an amazing job at the event and were extremely attentive to everyone’s needs.

Hands off – that’s na-cho cheese!

There’s a lot of beef hiding under that lettuce!

The perfect combo

TACO WARNING – Yes, I am saving that cheese on my chin for later. While most food is perfectly easy to eat, the hard shell taco is not date food.  But, if someone still loves you after eating one of those bad boys then you know you should keep them. I mean is there a skill to eating these politely? Because if there is, I haven’t discovered it yet!

    • Hanover buildings, at the end of the Christmas market, just up from Laura Ashley. Before you hit the Bargate, on the road with Thompson on the corner. Hope this helps – it opens Wednesday! X
