Bean Burrito-no red, no onion
Ever since I was a kid, my standard order at Taco Bell has been "one bean burrito--no red, no onion--, a regular nacho, and a small Mountain Dew." With a few rare exceptions, I have ordered this same meal for about 20 years. I don't eat at Taco Bell often, but when I do, that's what I get. And, I have a special way of eating it, too. I eat the chips plain and use the nacho sauce as a dip for my burrito. Mmmmm. . . so good!
I have have mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. . .you can find just about anything you're looking for in Singapore. In this case, what we found was Taco Bell! Josh heard that there was a 3-in-1 KFC (a KFC branch that serves KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell items) at Shaw House on Orchard Road. Under "normal" circumstances, we wouldn't go out of our way to eat Taco Bell, but life here isn't exactly "normal." So, last night we made the long trek across the Island to see if the rumor was true.
Sure enough! On the 5th floor of Shaw House we found a sight for sore Californian eyes. . . the Taco Bell logo. Though the menu was VERY limited (there were only 5-6 Taco Bell menu items) I was able to get a bean burrito and a side of nacho cheese (no nacho chips on the menu). It had the delicious taste of familiarity; it tasted just like every other bean burrito dipped in nacho cheese sauce I've consumed in the last 20 years. =)
It took us over an hour to get there, and an hour and a half to get home, but I must admit, the familiar taste was worth every minute!
Now, if only we could find an In-n-Out. . .
