Peek inside Taco Bell's test kitchen for the first time ever

Taco Bell Canada has announced that it will begin serving alcohol at select locations in Canada beginning in June.

Additional stores are expected to follow and the beverage list could expand beyond just suds. From breakfast to late night, Taco Bell serves made-to-order and customizable tacos and burritos, among other craveable choices, and is the first QSR restaurant to offer American Vegetarian Association (AVA)-certified menu items.

Taco Bell Canada also announced its intention to grow to 700 restaurants in Canada. Not to worry. Following the announcement, Taco Bell has assured fans that they will roll out similar test kitchen dining experiences "throughout the year".

"In the last five years, Taco Bell Canada has experienced tremendous growth", said Taco Bell Canada general manager Amanda Clark.

"At the core of our new design, we stay true to our Californian heritage".

"We're looking forward to delighting Taco Bell fans across the country with this fun and behind-the-scenes experience as we know diners love a sneak peek at the secret sauce behind their favorite restaurants", he said in a statement. The research lab is located in Irvine, California and the dinner itself is set to take place on Friday, May 19.

From the Doritos Locos Tacos to the Naked Chicken Chalupa, Taco Bell is known for its revolutionary Mexican-inspired food creations, and the Test Kitchen is where it all starts. Taco Bell noted that travel accommodations will not be provided. Across North America, Taco Bell serves more than 40 million customers per week and there are almost 200 locations in Canada.
