Friday Lunch Quick Notes: Guzman y Gomez
This is a long overdue post which came from our first visit to Guzman y Gomez at Fortitude Valley. This is their first restaurant to be opened in Queensland and D had been eagerly awaiting the opening day. We had previously visited Guzman y Gomez in Newtown on our last trip to Sydney and loved it. We were hoping it would be as good as we remembered.
Just a bit of nostalgia on my part, it was at Guzman y Gomez that I first tasted black beans and realised that they were pretty good. Pretty darn good, actually.
So, Guzman y Gomez Fortitude Valley opened in mid-December with an opening day bash and free burritos. We were very excited, until I realised I got the date wrong and the opening day was actually a Thursday and not a Friday.
No matter, we went there for lunch anyway.
On our first visit - a few years ago now - we loved the quesadillas but this particular Friday we decided to give the tacos a go. We ordered four tacos with four different fillings: Chicken Guerrero, Spicy Chicken Guerrero, Beef Guerrero and Pork Chipotle. I enjoyed them all, but the Spicy Chicken Guerrero was my favourite.
