Tacos are coming! Tacos are coming!

Yes, you heard it first here: Taco Bell is coming to Lujiazui.

“Live mas!” instead of “Think Outside The Bun.” Good luck.

No kidding.

This big new TB restaurant will be right by Exit 2 of Lujiazui Metro Station of Line 2 in Pudong.

Thousands of people come to Lujiazui everyday via Metro Line 2 and Taco Bell will be right there to welcome everyone.

I just don’t know how many people will stop by and see what a taco is. Most people will probably just walk right by and take a peek of what’s inside.

Will Taco Bell modify its menu to lure Chinese.customers to its flagship store? Will there be pork tacos instead of the regular beef taco? Will TB offer free chips? Will TB offer french fries? I wonder what kind of marketing and taste-tests will TB do before opening this store? Will this store be the first one TB opens in China.

Pizza Hut is doing well in some areas of Shanghai. Papa John’s isn’t. KFC is doing great in many restaursnts in Pudong and Shanghai probably because chicken is well liked by Chinese people and eating deep fried chicken; crust, fat and juicy dark meat, makes people satisfied.

Taco? I doubt it. Just like Home Depot which backed out of China after a few years.of losing big in China.

But, TB has to try even though I don’t think it has a prayer.

Chiptole will do great in China.

這是我們第二次進肯德基了。可是這是我們第一次吃肯德基的炸雞。

第一次是在大拇指廣場。我們進去只是好奇。進去看看上海的KFC跟美國的KFC有什麽不同。它有炸雞,也有其他的東西。此外,它還有蛋撻。我們沒敢吃炸雞,只買了一個蛋撻吃吃。還真不錯呢。那是三,四年以前的事了。

浦東張江的肯德基在匯智廣場。我們每次坐地鐵都要經過它的店面。幾乎每次來,都是坐的滿滿的。我們這次在上海常住,挑了今天來肯德基吃它的炸雞,也算到此一遊了。

我們七點多到。坐的滿滿的。我們叫了三塊炸雞,一個小肉餅,一杯 Pepsi (no free refill)和兩個蛋撻。一共人民幣67塊。換成美金正好$10。

一共人民幣$60.5元。


炸雞不夠熱,肉乾,沒有美國的炸雞好吃,味道比較不重。雞塊也顯得小。小肉餅不怎麼樣,跟肉包子的餡味道類似,只不過它是烤的。蛋撻依舊很好吃。不過這應該是我們最後一次來上海的肯德基了。

我們吃了飯去走路,吃完了飯,回家途中經過匯智廣場的肯德基,它又是忙的不得了。看來上海浦東張江的年輕人還喜歡肯德基的炸雞,雞翅膀和炸雞三明治的。

這是晚上十點十五分左右的相片。還真忙呢。
