Around the World: Taco Bell Korea Offers Bulgogi Tacos

Taco Bell first entered the South Korea market back in 2010 and, for the most part, it offers the same taste and menu as you'd find here in the U.S. But recently, they added something with a little more local Korea flavor: new Fiesta Bulgogi Tacos and Grilled Bulgogi Burritos.

For those of you not familiar with the popular Korean barbecue dish, bulgogi literally means "fire meat" in Korean and is typically sliced beef that has been marinated in a sweet and tangy soy sauce before grilled over a fire. The Taco Bell version looks more like it's been braised and is offered in lieu of the signature Taco Bell seasoned ground beef.

The tacos come with fiesta salsa and lettuce, while the burritos look like they come with fiesta salsa, shredded cheese, and seasoned rice. The tacos are offered at 2,700 won (~$2.56 US) each and the burritos are going for 3,500 won (~$3.31 US).
