Taco Bell Malaysia Opens Its First Restaurant in Cyberjaya (and soon, in Tropicana Gardens Mall!)

Taco Bell, the world’s largest Mexican-inspired American fast-food brand, officially opened its doors for the first time in Malaysia on 2 April in Cyberjaya, the heartland of Digital Malaysia and home to a thriving community of innovators within Selangor.


This restaurant truly captures Taco Bell’s “Live Más” brand philosophy which translates to “Live More”, as in more fervently and authentically, giving customers a truly unique dining experience accompanied by great food. Recognizing Malaysians’ passionate love of food, Taco Bell Malaysia introduces the spirit of “Live Kaw Kaw” – a colloquial expression that encourages Malaysians to make every day extraordinary through a truly unique dining experience.


“We are excited to finally bring this youthful and iconic brand to Malaysia, starting with Cyberjaya, our first Taco Bell outlet. The Mexican-inspired cuisine of Taco Bell is most certainly the best in the world from a restaurant chain. The two-story restaurant design features Taco Bell’s signature iconic styles throughout the building from the rainbow-colored Taco ceiling to our indoor sunroom with high glass panels, reflecting the brand’s youthful Taco Bell spirit,” said Harris Beh, Taco Bell Malaysia’s Franchise Operator.



Taco Bell, started in 1962 by founder Glen Bell in Southern California, quickly became a global powerhouse as it expanded to over 30 countries. The brand is known for making a big splash whenever it enters a new market, embracing fans, young and old, and welcoming them to its iconic and contemporary brand experience.


One of the key features of Malaysia’s first Taco Bell restaurant is the centerpiece mural art that is an interpretation of how the spirit of Malaysian culture and the Taco Bell brand are perfectly blended; the mural is designed in collaboration with local Malaysian artist, Wilson Ng. This initiative is part of the brand’s commitment to supporting the local creative community. All the features in the restaurant combine to create a colorful, fun and Instagram-worthy space. 




Other restaurant features include an open-kitchen theatre where fans can watch their meals being prepared, free high-speed WiFi access throughout the restaurant, multiple stations to charge customer’s mobiles and laptops, buzzers to inform customers when their food is ready for pick up, and so much more. 


The Taco Bell menu is customizable to fit any customer’s preferences. Guests can taste the bold flavors, best-in-class ingredients, including the taco shell and tortillas, proteins such as seasoned ground beef, seasoned ground chicken, grilled chicken, and crispy chicken. Vegetarians can switch the protein to black beans for most items on the menu.


The brand is also proud to introduce the “Bell Rice Bowl”, featuring our very own Malaysian-made sambal to cater to the Asian palate; a menu item that is unique to Malaysia. For dessert, the brand recommends their delicious Cinnamon Twists and Chocodilla™. All our combos come with a side of Nacho Chips or Mexican Fries and we offer free refills of soft drinks for all our combo meals as well. Most importantly, all ingredients used to prepare the food at Taco Bell Malaysia are from halal-certified sources. 




“Malaysians will absolutely take to Taco Bell – a fantastic Mexican-inspired cuisine that is not only uniquely tasty, scrumptious, but also very balanced. The menu is easily customizable to fit anyone’s preferences and lifestyle. We plan to roll out Taco Bell to the urban areas across Malaysia so many more food lovers will be able to enjoy this exciting cuisine. They will have the choice of dining in or ordering take away, whereas delivery will be available in the near future,” said Harris Beh.



Ankush Tuli, Managing Director Asia Pacific Taco Bell, emphasizes the excitement with the Malaysia opening and future expansion plans for the market. 

“We are thrilled to bring the Taco Bell brand to Malaysia. There is such a rich food culture here and we are really excited to make Taco Bell a part of it with our craveable, Mexican-inspired food, youthful and adventurous brand spirit.  We are grateful to all our fans in here who have been waiting for the brand to open in Malaysia and we are delighted to invite all of them to come and try our signature and iconic food at our first location at Cyberjaya. We look forward to growing the brand to reach more and more fans throughout the country,” said Ankush Tuli. 


For more information about the brand, fans can visit Taco Bell Malaysia’s website www.tacobell.com.my or follow our social media channels Facebook, Instagram (@tacobellmalaysia) and Twitter (@tacobellmy). Restaurant Address: Taco Bell, Lot SD-02, Off Persiaran APEC, Cottage Walk, 63000, Cyberjaya, Selangor.

If you need the menu, it is here:



My personal favourite is The Taco Supreme (made fresh and taste really GOOD!) and the loaded nachos! And soon, of course, Taco Bell is probably opening REAL SOON in Tropicana Gardens Mall, PJ!!!

Roche Malaysia's Pharmaceutical Division Organized Its First Healthcare Hackathon

Recently, Roche (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd, the pharmaceutical division, organized its first Hackathon, where staff came together during the CMCO to brainstorm realistic, innovative healthcare solutions for Malaysian cancer patients.


Themed ‘Reimagine Healthcare’, this 3-day event was co-organised with
MaGIC (The Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre) and was participated by employees from the Roche group in Malaysia, comprising the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and shared service centre. They were guided by a trainer, mentors and validators, with the aim of finding ideas that can potentially deliver real and potential impact to Malaysia’s healthcare system and cancer patients.



A hackathon is an event (usually hosted by a technology company or organization) where programmers gather for a short period of time to collaborate on a project. The participants normally work rapidly and often work without sleep to achieve their task, as the events generally last between 24 hours to a few days. 

“Hackathons have rapidly evolved and have become more flexible in recent years, and are now widely used in different industries,” said Lance Duan, the General Manager of Roche Malaysia. “Thus, I am pleased to see Hackathon evolving into the healthcare industry, as these proposed solutions may change the paradigm for patients and the healthcare ecosystem.”

Lance Duan, General Manager of Roche Malaysia

This 3-day event was co-organised with MaGIC, who helped bring in the mentors for the Hackathon. “Through this Hackathon journey, I believe the participants benefited from the insights and guidance from the diverse stakeholders, as not only were they from the healthcare community, but also from the digital and technology arena,” said Dzuleira Abu Bakar, CEO of MaGIC. 

Dzuleira Abu Bakar, CEO of MaGIC


Prior to the 3-day Hackathon event in November, there were 2 ‘ignition’ sessions for all Roche colleagues to join, whereby external speakers from various industries shared and discussed their innovation journey and how it had transformed their organisations to deliver a bigger and better impact within their industries.

When the Healthcare Hackathon kick-started on the first day, Roche staff were divided into 6 teams' and were introduced to the problem statement - How best to enable cancer patients to receive the best treatment for their specific condition. Through-out the first and the second day, the teams used design thinking to ideate and propose prototype solutions, while investigating different methodologies for their concept.

At the end of the third day, the 6 teams pitched against each other, when they presented their concept to the judges, who were Lance and several healthcare professionals. The judges looked for ideas that demonstrated a true commitment to innovation and digital utilization that delivered real, measurable impact and a realistic adoption of their concept. 

Dr. Benjamin Cheah, a Consultant Rheumatologist, who was one of the validators and judges, said, “I was privileged enough to witness an innovative event organised by Roche Malaysia. I am always inspired by the passion and enthusiasm of individuals. It was an honour to see the embrace of new ideas and the commitment to sustainable and positive innovation in healthcare.”

Lance also added, “As one of the judges, I was impressed with the 6 teams’ presentations, given the limited period to share innovative solutions for cancer patients. To me, all the ideas generated expressed a genuine desire to deliver meaningful change for Malaysian patients. By working together across different divisions, this enabled the OneRoche experience, which also helped the teams stay motivated as we deliver better outcomes to more patients faster. I thank the trainer, mentors and validators for their time and effort through-out, as well as my fellow judges for their hard work in reviewing the presentations with me”.

Two winners were announced - one in early childhood cancer education and the second an application on breast cancer. In the next few months, the winning teams will be provided with sponsors, mentors and sounding boards to make their ideas come to life. 

“I see the potential of Hackathons, in promoting out-of-the-box approaches to creating realistic solutions, and I look forward to more creative, disruptive ways, like our Healthcare Hackathon as this promotes innovation and radical collaboration in our bid to do more for Malaysian patients,” Lance added.
