It's hard to miss Zambrero's bright green entrance as you make your way down Rundle Street. Zambrero serves up fresh mex food late into the night, their burritos and tacos will fill you up with beans, rice, meat and a load of fresh salsas.
Zambrero like burritos, and they like them big. They follow a similar method to other fresh mex eateries like Burp and Chipotle. The ingredients are lined out in front of you so you can choose each edition to your humble burrito. The same works for your tacos, bowl burritos, or dos capas. You choose your meat (or don't choose one for the vegetarian option), and then to add things like rice, beans, lettuce, salsas, jalapenos, sour cream, guacamole and cheese. Finally you choose your Zambrero sauce.
Zamprero's sauces are a great addition to any of their meals, and the option to add sauce isn't always as common amongst Australian fresh mex retailers. Check out these tasty options: Chipotle (mild) White Sauce (not really spicy at all) Red Chili Sauce (spicy spicy) Verdé (jalapeno spicy) Smokey Tamarindo (a little bit spicy, super tasty)
Their meals are one size fits all. People with smaller appetites may struggle to finish a whole burrito, as the talented staff manage to pack a whole lot into one package. The only other downside to Zambrero is that they charge for the guacamole. You'll pay an extra $2 if you want to add this to your meal, and so if you're a fan of the humble avocado you'll be looking at paying almost $12 for a burrito without a drink.
The best bit about Zambrero are the awesome opening hours. Open from 11am-10:30pm Sunday to Wednesday, and 11am to 3am Thursday to Saturday, these guys are great for late night food runs. If you're having a night on the town a packed Zambrero burrito goes down far better than a Big Mac.
So head down to Zambrero for some fresh mex with big flavour.
