Zambrero’s are a Canberra grown mexican take-away franchising success story.
The Civic store can get a bit busy at lunch with the queue heading out the door and onto Alinga St.
But if you turn up around 12 there’s no waiting and you’ll be quickly gliding along the make desk.
At $9.90 it only just squeaks in as a sub $10 lunch. But you do get quite a lot of food. If you’re feeling extravagant I recommend the guac for an extra $1.
In fact watching the food pile up prior to being wrapped one wonders “how am I going to eat all that”.
The answer is “because it’s so delicious”.
Armed with an alfoil clad baseball bat (which in a few short years has become as distinctive as a million dollar branding exercise) You’re all set to retreat to your desk.
I went with the lamb burrito with verde sauce and no jalapenos.
(If you’ve never tried Zambreros before feel free to take this template to get you through the scary first burrito.)
In many ways they’re like a kebab, only actually tasty.
If you didn’t already know about Zambrero then give it a whirl.
