Food Style: Mexican Signature Dish: Chicken Burrito - $9.90 What To Expect: Zambrero, fresh mex with heart, has landed on the Perth food scene with it’s own brand of ‘fresh mex’, a fresh healthy take on Mexican food. Local boys Jamie Shaw and Eli Barlow have moved quickly to secure great locations in Leederville and Mount Lawley with an offering that centers around great food made with freshest possible ingredients. When Jamie found the locations in Leederville and Mount Lawley he had to fight off 25 other applicants to acquire the sites. Eli and Jamie then spent days jack hammering restoring a wall in the Mount Lawley site to uncover and amazing turn of the century brickwork, which would have been covered up for almost 100 years. It has now become a feature of Zambrero Mount Lawley which seats around 20 people while Leederville seats approximately 40 people. Zambrero has an initiative called plate 4 plate – every time Zambrero sell a plate of food they provide a plate of food to a child in need. The owners pay for these meals out of their profits and so far have provided over 500,000 meals. It’s not traditional Mexican – and if you come looking for that you may be disappointed. But if you are after fresh mex which is truly fresh and different in a casual setting Zambrero is your place. Location: Leederville on Newcastle Street and Mt Lawley on Beaufort Street
