Guzman Y Gomez, Newtown

As an American living overseas, I often get Mexican/Tex-Mex food withdrawals.
After trying and crying over several ‘Mexican’ restaurants in Sydney, I found Mad Mex with some friends.  And now there is an alternative: Guzman Y Gomez.

Guzman Y Gomez have eight outposts: Kings Cross, Bondi Junction, MLC Centre, Australia Square, Crows Nest, Westfield Sydney, Fortitude Valley, and Newtown, where I was yesterday.

Don’t be scared!  Seats are empty because I was there at 11am!

GYG is a fresh fast food joint serving up tacos, quesadillas and burritos in the style popularised in California, New Mexico and Texas.

They have a simple menu where you pick your dish, your meat filling and any sides you want.  There is also a condiment bar with a myriad of complimentary sauces to light a fire in your mouth.

The fillings include:
1. Chicken Guerrero
2. Spicy Chicken Guerrero
3. D.F. Steak & Onion
4. Beef Guerrero
5. Pork Chipotle
6. Barramundi
7. Veggie (includes quacamole)

I go for a Mini Burrito with D.F. Steak & Onion, Corn Chips & Guac and a can of drink.  The D.F. Steak & Onion is slices of juicy, tender, flavorsome steak with sticky onions and just a little chipotle heat.  The burrito is stuffed with rice, beans, pico de gallo, tomatillo salsa and plenty of cilantro (coriander).  Fresh and yummy!

Mini D.F. Steak & Onion Burrito ($6), Corn Chips & Guac ($5) and a can of Pepsi ($1 with meal purchase)

For $12 altogether, you can’t beat it in Sydney.

      I’ve never had Chipotle because there are none in my region.
      My friends who eat Chipotle would tell GYG is no where near as good.

      It’s good for Sydney mexican. :)
