A great substitute to a normal kebab

The flavoursome spicy chicken burrito

Authentic mexican meets the east side with style, finesse and great value lunches. The difficulty (at times) can be in deciding on which burrito to choose. Fast food takes on a new meaning at the ever so chic Westfield's at Bondi Junction. The food is tasty, and when you eat inside it can easily feel like you're eating in a restaurant as opposed to something like a take away joint. Guzman y Gomez has stamped its authority in Bondi Junction over the last 10 months, and just as well as this store is so well managed.

The busy service area

For starters, their homemade guacamole is smooth and utterly delicious. This dip is prepared on a daily basis. No frozen goods here. The chilli taste is subtle. Hooray for no overpowering. Apart from the fresh avocadoes, Guzman y Gomez at Bondi Junction makes way for fresh vegetarian black beans and different cuts of meat to name.

A simple but filling lunch

It was quite a simple challenge in deciding between the Spicy Chicken Guerrero Burrito ($10.50) or the Barramundi Burrito Bowl ($10.50) for lunch a couple of weeks ago. The flour tortilla did it, and I did not regret having ordered the chicken variety. The flavours hit the spot, and so did lunch on this occasion.

Airy, spacious dining room area near the front of the store

The chicken burrito comes with Pico de Gallo and Tomatillo salsa, rice, vegetarian black beans and cheddar cheese. The chicken tasted organic and the pieces were finely cut. A refreshing change from any kebab is called for.

Great activity for the kids, colour me in...

The ambience can get quite noisy at the best of times. If you're lucky to nab a great, clean table here you're doing well. Thankfully I did. You need to be quite hungry to enjoy one of these burritos. Ensure you have a few serviettes at hand as you get down towards the end of a satisfying meal. Even if you're not a fan of rice you will be pleasantly surprised. The spicy factor is mild.

The dining area away from the busyness

For those of you who have kids, this restaurant is an ideal place to hang out and enjoy lunch at with them. Why? Not only because of the spacious dining room, however Guzman y Gomez at Bondi Junction also provides stencils and colouring in crayons. A no brainer in keeping the little one's entertained while enjoying simple, accessible mexican delights.
