On March 21, 1962, Glen Bell opened the doors to the first Taco Bell in Downey, California. Back then, customers called tacos "tay-kohs," and they only had to shill out 19 cents for each one they ordered. In 1964, Taco Bell's first franchisee stepped forward, and by 1967, the company was celebrating its 100th store. A decade later, Taco Bell reached a new milestone with its first international location in Guam.
By the Numbers
Taco Bell's exponential growth over the years has helped the company accrue some impressive numbers. For instance, it serves more than 35 million customers every week at nearly 5,600 restaurants around the world. More staggering, perhaps, are Taco Bell's annual totals: the restaurant doles out more than one billion burritos and two billion tacos every year, enough to wrap around the globe numerous times or feed a single Andre the Giant.
On the Menu
The menu at Taco Bell has always been reliable, but never predictable. Classics like the Burrito Supreme and Crunchy Taco have stood the test of time, all while the company ushers in one innovative menu item after the next. The Crunchwrap Supreme, for instance, was so successful as a limited-time offer in 2005 that it became a permanent menu item by January 2006. Taco Bell also stole headlines with its creation of Doritos Locos Tacos in 2012, and its breakfast and FourthMeal menus ensure there's something tasty waiting no matter the time of day.

Made-from-scratch recipes and fresh ingredients have been setting The Original Pancake House apart from its breakfast-spot competition since 1953. That's when its owners established an all-day empire committed to ingredients such as pure hard-wheat unbleached flour and butter made from fresh sweet cream.
Today, The Original Pancake House cooks across the country still construct scrambles and omelets from fresh Grade AA eggs. Powdered sugar lines the rims of oven-baked dutch baby pancakes, and granny-smith apples simmer in oven-baked pancakes (two of more than a dozen styles of pancake on the menu). Even the toppings are made in-house, including whipped cream, specialty syrups, and sauces. To complement these flavors, staff fill cups with fresh-squeezed orange and grapefruit juices and coffee blended specially to match the Original Pancake House's menu and upholstery. Although each location takes on the local charm of its surrounding city, all of them share in common a homey atmosphere that welcomes families with perks such as color-in place mats and kids' menus.
Name aside, The Original Pancake House isn't just a breakfast spot—in fact, it stays open for three meals a day, or six if you follow most doctors' advice to take a small pancake break every few hours. The savory side of the menu holds meat-and-egg combos and savory crepes stuffed with cheese and veggies.

If you've read my personal blog, you know of my fondness for Sushi Hana, here in the town of Bothell, north and a bit east of Seattle. When we first started going out for sushi, though, I could only get the kids to eat fruit and sticky rice, and so my husband and I made a decree: each time we go, the kids have to at least try a new food. You’d think this would be easy, because I have a cousin from Japan, and so our holiday meals have included sushi since the beginning. But you’d be wrong, because of one who doesn’t like fish, one who doesn’t care for eggs, one who is allergic to nuts and mango, and so on. So I decided to compile a list of what have (finally!) become our standbys, foods that at least two of the three will eat every time we visit.
This is what my cousin from Japan calls “children’s sushi,” because it’s safe even for toddlers. There are no hard veggies for choking, and the only potential allergen is the sweetened soy tofu wrapper. And if you’re allergic to soy, well… let’s just say a Japanese restaurant is probably not the venue for you.
The classic cucumber roll, and good for even the picky ones. It’s just sushi rice, cucumber, and seaweed. If he’s not too busy, the sushi chef will arrange these rolls on a plate in the shape of a smiley face or a butterfly for my youngest, seven, who treats kappa maki like candy.
Although the one who loathes eggs won’t eat this, the other two will, so it makes the list. It is referred to as the Japanese omelette, and is effectively a strip of scrambled eggs laid on a similar strip of sushi rice, and secured with a much smaller strip of seaweed. Like a Japanese mini-frittata.
I have no idea what this one is called in Japanese, because every sushi restaurant I have ever been to just called it “shrimp nigiri.” It’s very similar to the tomago nigiri above, except with shrimp in place of scrambled eggs (and generally not the little strip of seaweed to secure it). Note: the shrimp in question is thoroughly cooked, butterflied, and chilled. No scary raw fish for nervous youngsters.
While these are steamed soybean pods with a little salt, my youngest calls them “Japanese peas,” which I suppose is a valid enough description for seven. There is apparently a big thrill (over and above the thrill of being allowed to take one’s own food off the conveyor belt) involved in sucking the individual soybeans out of the pod.
Gyoza, Miso Soup and Eggrolls
Everyone knows the first and last of these, but as I have one child who likes each, I thought I’d put them on the list. Plus, if you’re not feeling terrific, coming down with a cold in the Seattle autumn, miso soup is the best stuff around. And at least one of my kids agrees.
Mochi Ice Cream
Yes, I know it’s not really a dish as such; it’s a dessert. But there is something so charming about little ice cream balls coated in mochi (pounded sticky rice starch). As long as we stay away from the mango flavor - the middle daughter is allergic - we’re in pretty good shape with mochi ice cream as a finish to our sushi adventure.
Sometimes a pure and simple pepperoni pizza hits the spot. But with the proliferation of unlikely toppings popping up on pies all over Seattle, our definition of the Friday-night dinner staple is changing. Below, we highlighted 10 pies with toppings mouthwatering enough to tempt us away from our usual slice (plus one for those with an appetite for adventure).
Pesto Chicken Pizza at Talarico’s Pizzeria (4718 California Ave. SW)
Pesto on pizza is nothing new by itself, but Talarico’ s version of a pesto pie is the perfect marriage of tradition and innovation, incorporating brie cheese and spiced walnuts along with pesto-marinated chicken, classic marinara sauce, and mozzarella.
No. 6 Classic at Flying Squirrel Pizza Co. (three locations in Seattle)
The toppings list on the No. 6 reads a lot like a classic steak-house menu—sans steak. Potatoes roasted with lemon, herbs, and garlic mingle with St. Clemens blue cheese, chive oil, and spinach, along with a generous sprinkling of mozzarella.
The Locks at The Alibi Room (85 Pike St. #410)
There’s no shortage of creative pizza toppings at The Alibi Room—asparagus and bacon, blue cheese and grapes—but in this seafood-loving town, one stands apart. Featuring an olive-oil base topped with smoked salmon, dill cream cheese, red onions, and capers, The Locks is like a classic New York bagel in pizza form, though without a single pesky poppy seed.
Tropicana Pizza at Jet City Pizza Co. (multiple locations in western Washington)
Pineapple on pizza has long been a mainstay, but Jet City takes the Hawaiian-pizza concept further, starting with pineapple and canadian bacon, then adding mandarin oranges, sliced almonds, and coconut. Bring your own mini marshmallows and you’ve basically got an ambrosia salad on a pizza.
Cowardly Apricot at 'Zaw Artisan Pizza (multiple locations in the Puget Sound area)
The chefs at 'Zaw pride themselves on using unique, locally sourced toppings for their take-and-bake pizzas, and this sweet and savory concoction is no exception. Roasted free-range chicken breast joins apricots, fresh basil, maple-syrup-caramelized onions, and a blend of gorgonzola and mozzarella atop a crust brushed with olive oil.
Pizza di Nutella at Queen Margherita (3111 W. McGraw St. #103)
This sweet and simple dessert pizza is exactly as simple as it sounds: a pizza crust slathered with the chocolate-hazelnut spread. Think of it as a big, shareable crepe and suddenly it doesn’t seem so strange.
Il Segreto di Pulcinella at Pizzeria Pulcinella (10003 Rainier Ave. S)
While perfect for dessert, we could totally picture ourselves devouring this pie first thing in the morning. Creamy mascarpone and espresso and coffee liqueur are spread upon the crust, which is then baked in a wood-fired oven. The final touches: drizzles of chocolate sauce and dollops of whipped cream.
Thai One On Pizza at Zeeks Pizza (multiple locations in the Puget Sound area)
For the nights when one takeout staple simply won’t do, this pizza combines the classic flavors of pad thai—chicken, bean sprouts, carrots, fresh cilantro, and peanut sauce—with mozzarella and an olive-oil glaze.
Two-Cut Cubano at The Station Pizzeria (14505 148th Ave. NE, Woodinville)
The classic components of a cuban sandwich are all represented here, even down to the grainy dijon mustard. Add to that pulled pork shoulder, smoked ham, housemade bread and butter pickles, and pepperoncini. One small exception: the usual swiss cheese is swapped out for provolone. This is a pizza, after all.
Reuben at Rocco’s (2228 2nd Ave.)
For further proof that great sandwiches make equally great pizzas, look no further than this Belltown original, topped with with mozzarella, corned beef, sauerkraut, and thousand island dressing. If only someone would invent a marble-rye pizza crust.
Big Moses at Ballard Pizza Company (5107 Ballard Ave. NW)
The chefs choose the toppings on this pie each day, meaning every meal is a surprise. While there are no guarantees, past incarnations have included everything from peaches, spicy salumi, and chives to cherries, arugula, and guanciale.
