Karrinyup is something else. Not only do we have the best beach in Perth just three minutes away, but it’s a nice, quiet suburb just 15 minutes north of the CBD. It’s one of those convenience plus lifestyle places, and so, we thought, what better place to set up a sparkling new Mad Mex?
Located right in the heart of the action, the Karrinyup Mad Mex can be found amongst other incredible brands in the new Karrinyup shopping centre, giving you the perfect opportunity to rest and refuel while out for some retail therapy.
We sat down to chat with Pooja Patel, the franchisee that is bringing you our mouth-watering authentic Mexican cuisine, to chat about his burning passion for Fresh Fuel For Life (and why it’s perfect for the Karrinyup lifestyle).
Welcome to Karrinyup! What’s it like being the person responsible for bringing Mad Mex to the Karrinyup locals?
It is “Madness” in true sense – and I mean that in a good way!
The Mad Mex crew have been great to deal with and have made our transition relatively smooth considering that we were also dealing with the COVID-19 restrictions. From that very first phone call during the expression of interest phase we were made very comfortable and part of familia.
What do you think the people of Karrinyup will love about good, authentic Mexican?
They’re going to love the authentic, made with passion, fresh Mexican fuel that caters for all foodies – from those that love a good dollop of guac on their nachos right through to the vegans on the hunt for a hit of spice.
What can locals expect from their all-new Mad Mex experience?
Every amigo that comes to us will get a luchador who is there to serve you the freshest and most wholesome Mexican food, that is sure to satisfy your taste buds while helping you stay healthy. Most of all, it’s a thrill to be able to support the local community, hire locals, and help the area thrive.
How are you celebrating this grand opening?
After our crazy opening day, where we could barely blink in keeping up with the demand for burritos, we would like to celebrate grand opening with some sleep and rest.
But on a serious note, we will be celebrating our delayed grand opening day by giving away 500 free burritos to give everyone a taste of the world’s best burrito.
Finally, what would you recommend the people of Karrinyup to try off the menu first?
You cannot go wrong with a naked burrito with chicken and guac and a guava Jarritos to wash it down!
