While walking around a mall in Seoul, South Korea, I saw signs for Taco Bell. You cannot imagine the pure joy that leapt into my heart. Back in Virginia Beach, there are only two reasons to eat at Taco Bell:
1. You are drunk. Usually after a night of drinking, Taco Bell may be your only option for food. Also, don’t those chalupas taste gourmet after a few drinks?
2. You can’t think of anything else that you really want to eat, so you choose the cheapest option, which is always Taco Bell.
So even I was surprised at how excited I was to chance upon this fast food restaurant. I ordered a Fiesta Bulgogi Burrito (a burrito with salsa and bulgogi, which is thinly sliced marinated beef), a Beef Surpreme Chalupa and a medium drink.
They both were delicious. But. But. Guess how much my meal costed.
Naw, higher than that.
The drink and two tacos cost me almost US$8! I was so surprised and upset. This should have cost me no more than $5.
I guess it was worth it though. To have a little taste of home, so far away.
