Recently opened, the Guzman Y Gomez at Adelaide's King William Street is part of a chain of restaurants in Australia that offer Mexican foods. The restaurant prides itself on using high-quality ingredients and not cutting corners when making their dishes to ensure the quality of their food. Most of their dishes are available in mini and regular sizes to satisfy people with different appetites.
When ordering their dishes, you get to choose from grilled chicken, pulled pork, barramundi, grilled steak or slow-cooked beef as the filling for your dish. The barramundi we chose for our Burrito Bowl flaked apart easily with a fork and was partnered well by black beans and refreshing salsa. The dish also had the restaurant's own corn chips to add a bit of crunch to the dish.

The slowed cooked beef I chose for the Tacos had the degree of smoky flavour I desired. It was balanced by the generous amount of salsa. Served with the tacos was a lime wedge that can be squeezed over the tacos to add a bit of sharpness. While I opted for soft tacos, there is the option of having hard tacos if you prefer.

The Quesadillas is similar to their Soft Tacos but with the addition of melted Jack cheese. Despite the large amount of cheese, the flavour was quite mild and did not overwhelm the taste of the other ingredients. The chicken we chose as the filling was well done with a bit of a spicy flavour.

The grilled steak that we picked for their Enchilada was cooked perfectly and accompanied with a good quantity of rice and black beans to make eating the dish an enjoyable experience. Topping the Enchilada was guacamole, salsa and crema to tie everything together and as in the Burrito Bowl, there were some corn chips to provide a bit of contrast.

To complete your meal, you get complimentary access to their salsa station, where you can add various salsas, pickled jalapenos, coriander and onions to your dish. The restaurant is conveniently located close to a tram stop and a bus stop to make getting there easy and there is also a selection dishes available for breakfast. It is a great place to stop by for a meal or a snack when shopping at Rundle Mall.
