Businesses and nonprofits regularly open and relocate to Saskatoon. Today StarPhoenix speaks with Kishor Jajmera, co-owner of his Guac Mexi Grill. He brought with his co-owner Jatin Patel to Saskatoon’s Brighton neighborhood a few months ago. Guac Mexi Grill is Fast’s casual Mexican restaurant with over 50 franchises across Canada. It also owns another location in Martensville.
Q: What made you decide to open the first Guac Mexi Grill in Saskatoon?
A: I have worked in the food industry for many years. I have been a restaurant manager for the past 15 years. I’ve had quite a bit of experience in the food industry and now I can start and build this myself. I talked with Jatin (his partner in business) about what to think. Decided on fresh, not frozen. One of my friends he opened his Guac Mexi Grill in Regina so we spoke with him and went a few times to try the food and decided to give this one a go.
Q: What makes the Guac Mexi Grill unique?
A: All the food we serve is fresh and made with natural ingredients without artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.Most of our ingredients are made from scratch. Nothing frozen. Most other restaurants have pre-cut lettuce, pre-cut onions, and everything is packed. we don’t do that. Everything is prepared in-house every day. Salsa is also made daily. Made with 100% grain-fed chicken, Canadian Triple A beef cooked with Mexican seasonings, carefully marinated overnight and perfectly charred. We do not skimp on the food we serve. We have a wide variety of items. When people look at the store, they know it’s Mexican food, but when they actually eat it, everything is fresh, so we’re different.
Q: What about the menu?
A: Desserts include nachos, burritos, tacos, salad bowls, quesadillas, enchiladas, nachos and churros. We have a variety of items.
Q: What is your favorite menu item?
A: There is a gym next to our shop, and many people who go to the gym want to continue their strict diet. A salad bowl is a pretty good option. You can choose rice or beans. There are also meat options. They have chicken, ground beef, steak and barbacoa. This is basically shredded beef. And now he has one meat, carnitas. This is pulled pork. You can choose the meat part and your favorite salad. Customize your salad bowl just the way you like it with cheeses, veggies, salsas, and other sauces. The guacamole is also made in-house daily. You can get chips and salsa or chips and guacamole.
Another good option is the enchiladas. Enchiladas are basically regular burritos made in wraps with enchilada sauce and queso cheese. This is a pretty good Mexican cheese. Heat the sauce in the oven for 5-7 minutes. This is a really good option for those who want to eat a lot.
There are also fiesta potatoes, which are basically fried potatoes topped with queso cheese and ground beef, tomatoes, and sour cream. People’s reaction to the dish is also good.
Q: Are there any ongoing specials?
A: There are Tuesday tacos for $2 tacos. You can also have limited toppings, but it’s a pretty good deal.
Q: What is your background in the restaurant industry?
A: My research was commercial cookware. I used to be a chef in Australia. After that, I took a course in business management. After finishing his studies, his wife was working in Canada, so she moved here. When I was studying abroad in Australia, I was also enrolled in Burger King, so after I moved, I applied for Burger King in Canada and was hired. I’m still working as a restaurant manager at Burger King. increase.
Q: What service options do restaurants offer?
A: We have tatami seats that can be used by 12 to 15 people. We also do deliveries with Skip the Dishes and offer unique delivery options through our website.
