Celebrate International Taco Day the right way by getting your hands on a free taco from Taco Bell this week. 

October 4th is the yearly day when we celebrate the delicious Mexican dish (if you’re my housemate though, October 4th seems to fall every Tuesday).

The Mexican equivalent of the sandwich is just such a handy dish to suit most occasions, from eating on the go to having as a party snack.

International Taco day is taking place in more than 24 markets around the globe at participating restaurants, showing the worldwide love for the dish. The only downside is it’s one taco per customer but that still means you get to mark International Taco Day once.

Sometimes soft, sometimes crunchy, the Taco Supreme consists of a tortilla filled with your choice of protein (seasoned ground beef, chicken, slow cooked pork, steak strips, black beans) alongside sour cream, tomato, shredded lettuce, and cheese. My mouth was watering just writing that sentence.

It was a big deal when Taco Bell finally made its way to Australia in 2017 (there had been two unsuccessful branches in Sydney and the 80s and 90s). After opening its first store in Brisbane, the famous fast food chain now has 23 locations across Queensland, Victoria, and New South Wales. Even Western Australia now has one too, with a Taco Bell recently opening in Midland, Perth.

And with plans to expand their growing Oz empire even further, expect a Taco Bell to be popping in a neighbourhood near you soon.
