Who doesn’t love a good burrito, especially when Guzman y Gomez are celebrating Latin culture with their Cinco de Mayo party, this Saturday, 5 May.
You’re all invited to celebrate with a $5 burrito, $5 bowls and $5 coronas Australia wide.
Did you hear that? $5 burritos!! And coronas?!
If you didn’t know how big this celebration really is, GYG are expecting to roll more than 5 burritos every second to keep up with the demand. This stacks up to almost a quarter of a million burritos and bowls in just one day.
In preparation of the Cinco de Mayo party, GYG shopping list entails:
- 29 tonnes of chicken
- 5 tonnes of beef
- 5 tonnes of pork
- 7 tonnes of cheese
- 2 tonnes of avocado
While stuffing your face with burritos and beers, it’s important to remember the history behind the celebration. Not to be mistaken with Mexican Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo (or the fifth of May) marks the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, when the Mexican army defeated a much larger French force — despite being outnumbered two to one.
To this day, in Puebla Mexico, thousands of locals gather dressed as French and Mexican soldiers to reenact the war. Across the world, Cinco de Mayo has become a celebration of Mexican culture, dance, cuisine, cocktails and music.
According to Google Trends data, this holiday has grown over the last two years and this year will be the biggest yet! All burrito lovers unite.
