That's right, my friends. Taco Bell. Is opening in Puxi. Right here
. Huge news for people who like authentic Mexican cuisine. Huge news. Strike one for authenticity. Strike one for the good guys. With a Luijiazui venue
currently celebrated as the most exciting thing to hit Pudong since the Oriental Pearl TV Tower
, the American fast food chain is making the journey across the Huangpu and opening a location on Maoming Bei in that line of restaurants just north of Yan'an that also includes other Shanghai culinary triumphs Goose Island
and White Castle
See? That's what's there now. Promising greatness at 285 Maoming.
That's not a camera effect that's pure pandemonium because Taco Bell will be in a more manageable place to get to for people who live in a sane part of town. Looks like it's going to be multiple floors too.
When will it open? Dude, I don't know.
But SmartShanghai has this listings guy that I promise you we will send every day to check -- every single damn day till it opens.
