Just like everything new in Canberra, Guzman Y Gomez was very busy but because there are so many people working in the kitchen and most things on the menu are pretty fast to eat there is a high turn over of patrons. Even while I was nibbling at one burrito I saw three sets of people come and go.
Lines are quickly diminished and people who are waiting for their orders don’t even have to wait long and finding a seat wasn’t too bad either.
Different condiments and sauces by Tabasco.
With an ‘all hands on deck’ approach in the kitchen, the burritos arrive in about 5 minutes.
A lemon margarita ($8.50)
Chicken Guerrero (mild) burrito– grilled chicken in GYG’s Guerrero marinade with Pico de Gallo salsa and rice, cheddar cheese, vegetarian black beans, salsa rolled in a soft tortilla ($10.50) (guacamole $2.00 extra). The chicken went really well with the guacamole and I think it was worth getting.
Beef Guerrero (mild) burrito- slow roasted beef in GYG’s Guerrero marinade with Pico de Gallo salsa and rice, cheddar cheese, vegetarian black beans, salsa rolled in a soft tortilla ($10.50) The beef was nice and tender and I really enjoyed the cheddar cheese, although there wasn’t any towards the end of the burrito which made me a little sad. It was pretty filling.
Obviously not a date food, I had so many black beans leap from the burrito onto my dress or maybe I’m just a sloppy eater. The perfect for the ‘on the go’ or quick bite before you rush off to a movie option.
Maybe next time I’ll be more adventurous and try something spicy. Hmmm I wonder what their definition of ‘spicy’ is.
