CUBAO: Taco Bell PH Re-opened in Gateway


Just when my brother and I thought that our favorite Mexican fast food has closed shop for good, came an invitation (thank you my friend!) to attend the re-opening of its branch at the ground floor of Gateway Mall, Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City. 


The recently redesigned Taco Bell has a fresh new look that causes you to forget that you are in a fast food taco joint. The exterior has a big, modern signage design that is illuminated in a blue and violet hue. 



Smiling cashiers are the first thing to greet you as you walk in as its counter is located at the leftmost portion of the entrance of the restaurant. Spread across the top portion of the counter are Four (4) big LED HD TVs showing the pictures of the menu of the restaurant in HD setting. I think it is more sensible because human beings especially men like to see what they are going to order.  Food porn baby!


Right at the back of the counter is an open kitchen where you could watch the staff make your order using only the freshest ingredients available. Well, I'm impressed!  Kudos, for your well-lit and clean kitchen.



You could even upgrade your combos for only Php20 each. So cool!


If you like art, then you should not miss to visit the Taco Bell 
Philippines branch at Gateway Mall, Cubao. The murals are wonderful to look at. 




I also love its well-lit, clean and spacious dining area. The wood elements and pops of purple accent give a casual “modern coffee shop” vibe. Ang lakas maka sosyal! 

Now, let’s go to the food…




New kid on the Block

I ordered the newest rice meal offering of Taco Bell Philippines--Pork Stew. It was very delicious! I actually like you to try it because I simply love it.




My brother and I shared these Churros for dessert and they are delicious.

I just wish that the Churros were crunchier. Sorry, maybe it was just me but I find the texture of the dough similar to that of cream puffs, soft and “eggy” on the inside, but only slightly crispy from frying on the outsideI prefer my Churros to be crispier on the outside and perfect on the inside. Nonetheless, they were very delicious! 

My kind of perfect Churros have very nice crisps on the outside and are not chewy and undercooked on the inside. Taco Bell Ph Churros could be the perfect Churros I've been looking for just by making them crispier.

My rating:




Finally, Taco Bell's Chocodilla with Nutella were satisfying! I love the mint marshmallow in between.


 The Chocodilla (PHP 49) has marshmallows and Nutella inside, so 5 fingers for that.



My co-bloggers are smiling from ear to ear because they were so satisfied with their snacks. They gamely pose for the camera. Each one of us got to bring home one (1) party pack to enjoy and share with our family at home.

I love the table divider that not only saves space but actually made use of the space in between the tables and the open kitchen.


The meal ordered by seatmate yummytales. I'll try this meal next time.
