Guzman y Gomez, real Mexican, opens doors in Gunghalin today, Thursday, 25th May.
In true GYG style, we’re celebrating with a Free Burrito Day (yes, that’s right, free burritos!)
Where: T30, The Market Place, 30/33 Hibberson Street, Gunghalin, 2912
When: Available from Midday until 7pm
Canberra residents will get a chance to try GYG’s real, made-to-order Mexican food. The GYG menu is completely customisable and has something for everyone whether vegan, gluten free, or a guacamole fanatic.
The opening comes just as GYG has launched fries nationally.
“Our fries are made from real, quality ingredients and you won’t feel guilty after eating them as they don’t have any of the nasty stuff added to them like you might see in other fast food fries — they are whole potatoes, cooked in a canola oil blend and then seasoned to taste,” said Steven Marks, Founder and Managing Director of Guzman y Gomez.
“What’s even better is they taste pretty damn good. We’ve spent a long time making sure our fries are fit for Australia, going through over 30 iterations before this national launch.”
The potatoes are freshly harvested and hand-picked before being cleaned and cut into thick fries. They’re then snap-frozen and delivered straight to local GYG restaurants where they’re cooked in a high-oleic Canola oil blend and seasoned to perfection.
“The potato skin is an important part of a potato’s nutritional makeup. Many important nutrients like fibre are found in the skin so, when you strip that away, you’re taking away all of that goodness. And that’s just plain wrong!” Steven added.
