Taco Bell Now In Finland!

I spent months in Europe and days in Finland, crossing the country from top to bottom. I remember seing reindeer on a chip stand menu at the artic circle, but appart from that I don’t remember any of the food. Café culture hadn’t set in yet, so even though they are the biggest coffee drinkers in the world, I don’t even remember the coffee (apparently people drink buckets or light roast coffee, mostly at home).

I do remember craving Taco Bell. There was literally no Mexican food in all of Europe. At least now there are some Taco Bells. One in Manchester, and now one in Helsinki.

What a silly notion equating "Taco Bell" with "Mexican food". :lol:

You sure do like your fast food chains while abroad, huh?

Hehe ... mexican american? Tex mex?
I prefer it over traditional mexican food.

I like all americanized food!!! Except when they americanize asian food...

The exceptions for me are

Lemon chicken
Fried chicken wings with fried rice.
Sushi with avacado or smoked salmon or cheese in it :))

Actually gotta thank Monctonman for this tidbit. I messaged my friends in Helsinki and they were puzzled how I heard about this.
Did I post something that interests you? Feel free to PM further questions.

You messaged your friends using your Nokia phone I assume. :)

Taco Bell is attempting a comeback in Australia (they abandoned the English speaking Island in 2005).

Speaking of islands, there are no Taco Bells in Newfoundland or Prince Edward Island.

Taco Bell is taking over Europe. This year they opened in Holland and Romania. 32 locations in Spain! 17 in the UK.

They actually failed in Mexico where they have 0 stores left.

If you can’t get to Finland, there is a Tim Hortons opening in 3 hours in Cardiff, Wales.



That’s their second location in the UK after Glasgow. Wales is their 11th country (using the British definition of country). Their most recent new country before Wales was Mexico.

Sadly, none of their signage at the new store appears to be in Welsh.

Fisrt 100 customers get free food and coffee. Still I wouldn’t want to be that Gregg’s owner. Why Gregg’s refuses to sell filtered coffee is a mystery.



This guy lined up all night to be the first customer.
