Shanghai 5: A run for the Border unlike any other!
After the 2nd night of partying in shanghai, I slept about 5 hours
before waking up. My flight was at 4:20pm, so I didn't need to get to
the airport until 3 or so.... which gave me just enough time to check
out and enjoy a good lunch. And luckily I had spotted somewhere special
i wanted to eat down the street:
No, not the Hot Pot place, and not the Pizza Hut, I'm talking about the place on the ground floor, the
Taco Bell Grande! Yes, Taco Bell has made its way to China! (

- I had heard about a location in Shenzhen (turns out they just opened
a 2nd), but never got a chance to visit it. So I was happy to find out
there was one in shanghai now, just a block away from our hotel.
As you can probably tell, this is no fast food, they've turned Taco
Bell into a real sit down restaurant. (just like Pizza Huts in China
are considered rather upscale, they've gone a step further and done it
w/ Taco Bell too).
I got a Pepsi float and
the chicken quesadilla. It was pretty decent. (i'm always craving good tex-mex out here in Asia...)
Anyway as you can tell from the pictures, they're going for some
contrived mexican atmosphere inside and outside... particularly
humorous were the hats they made the staff wear:
I dunno, I've been to mexico two or three times and I don't remember
anyone wearing any big multi-colored sombreros inside their
Anyway, it was an interesting experience. I didn't have too much time
to enjoy it, as i had a plane to catch, so I'm going to have to go to
their SZ location next time I'm over there to try more of their menu.
Oh and when you're leaving the staff by the door all say
with a thick chinese accent...
