After more anticipation than a Mexican standoff, Zambrero has launched its on-campus store and put the zing back into lunchtime with its tantalising tortillas and cheeky chikitos.
Zambrero’s menu is modern Mexican with an extensive range of mouth-watering options, including burritos, tacos, nachos and quesadillas, all made with the freshest ingredients.
Customers can choose from a range of slow-cooked meats, fresh salad, sauces, salsas and rice, including jasmine and spirulina-infused black rice.
Importantly, all meals have vegetarian and vegan options.
Located in the Student Plaza, Zambrero’s grand opening at Bedford Park was recently celebrated with free burritos all day for staff and students.
“Our grand opening was a wonderful opportunity for the Zambrero team to get to know the Flinders community, and we are still buzzing from that experience,” says Peter Mazis, owner of the Zambrero store at Bedford Park.
“Our nutritious, contemporary take on classic Mexican food is something new on campus, so we feel that we have something fresh to offer.”
During the semester one break (9 April – 22 April 2018), Zambrero at Flinders will be giving all staff a free bottle of Mt Franklin water with every purchase of a burrito or bowl.
Food with heart
Not only is Zambrero a healthy and delicious food franchise, it is also humanitarian enterprise committed to tackling world hunger through its Plate 4 Plate initiative.
For every burrito and bowl sold, one meal is donated to someone in need around the world or living in an underprivileged Australian community.
“I am very passionate about our mission to fight world hunger,” Peter says.
“Since the company’s inception back in 2005, Zambrero has donated more than 21 million meals to people in need worldwide, which is mind-blowing.”
“Plate 4 Plate is what sets Zambrero apart from other quick-service restaurants, which is why I chose to join the food chain,” says Peter.
“I am excited to be part of the Flinders’ community and can’t wait to take staff and students on a sensory joy ride while joining together to fight world hunger.”
The distribution of meals overseas and within Australia is managed by the country’s largest food relief agency, Foodbank.
Zambrero was founded in Australia 13 years ago by Dr Sam Prince and now has over 160 restaurants globally across Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Ireland.
Zambrero is open from Monday-Friday, 10.00am-5.00pm.
Staff and students can stay up-to-date with the latest menu options and specials via Zambrero (Flinders Uni) on Facebook.
