Zambrero is Mexican with a mission: a healthy quick service restaurant as well as humanitarian enterprise committed to tackling world hunger. It does this via its Plate 4 Plate charity initiative, which means for every burrito or bowl (all the goodness of a burrito without the tortilla) sold, one meal is donated to someone in need around the world or living in an underprivileged Australian community.
Zambrero’s menu features all the Mexican favourites such as tacos, burritos and nachos, but what distinguishes Zambrero’s food from that served by most quick service restaurants is its focus on nutritious meals bursting with true flavour. Selections include slow-cooked meats spiced with herbs, the freshest of accompaniments from lettuce to fiery jalapenos and a range of sides such as homemade guacamole. There is also a selection of six inspired sauces, found only at Zambrero, to complete your meal. Zambrero Mexican restaurants also make a point of catering for dietary requirements, so diners need only click on the website to check kilojoules, or whether a meal is gluten free, dairy free or more.
Since Zambrero was founded by Dr Sam Prince in 2005, Plate 4 Plate has resulted in more than 4.5 million meals being delivered to those who need them the most. The distribution channel overseas is managed by Stop Hunger Now and in Australia via a partnership with the country’s largest food relief agency Foodbank.
