Popular Mexican fast-food restaurant Guzman y Gomez (GYG) on Monday opened its fourth store in Japan, on the second floor of Sumitomo Fudosan Roppongi Grand Tower at Roppongi Itchome station.
GYG, which was established in Australia in 2006, serves premium Mexican hand-made food, with an emphasis on wellness and fresh ingredients. The most popular items are the burritos, a global food favorite. At GYG, you can customise your burrito by adding any salsa sauce or toppings. You can carry it and eat it in one hand — a perfect healthy meal for busy people on the go.
The restaurant marinates fillings for burritos and tacos and original spices daily and uses griddles to make fillings juicy. The pico de gallo is made fresh daily in house, and tortilla chips are fried every morning. Salsa and chips that aren’t used in a day are never re-served. Other menu items, such as guacamole, are also made fresh daily.
The restaurant decor has a pop Latin feeling with lots of vibrant colours and Latin music mixed by a DJ from New York.
The new store’s location is ideally situated near embassies, hotels and international companies.
GYG opened its first store in Japan in 2015 in Laforest Harajuku. The second one opened this year at the Ikspiari shopping mall at Tokyo Disney Resort and the third opened at Atre Shinagawa.
GYG owner Steven Marks said: “We’re all about food. We choose every ingredient with passion. We don’t use frozen chicken or frozen beef steak. Our pico de gallo is made from fresh tomato, onion and coriander, and our guacamole is always prepared on the same day to maintain freshness. All of our seven fillings are individually marinated with Mexican spices. All these efforts contribute to our premium, restaurant-like quality. Hospitable staff, the contemporary atmosphere and design of our stores and Latin music are all indispensable to providing our customers with the best Mexican dining-out experience.”
The new store is located at Sumitomo Fudosan Roppongi Grand Tower, Roppongi 3-2-1. Hours are 11 a.m.- 9 p.m.
As with all store opening days, customers will receive a free burrito. GYG has given out as many as 6,000 free burritos on past opening days.
