Shelburne’s newest restaurant features Mexican–Indian fusion

There’s a new restaurant in Shelburne featuring a delightful mix of Mexican and Indian cuisine.

Mexcellent Burritos on Owen Sound Street just opened with a bright and welcoming location and a large kitchen where they make all sorts of tasty fare.

From burritos to coco bread, they put a spin on their offerings by combining spices to create some savoury dishes.

Restaurant owners, Ankit and Jasmita Thakkar had previous experience with a restaurant in Brampton, and Jasmita has years of experience in the industry.

They spent several months getting the new location ready for the opening with a new interior and re-designed space.

“The core of our business is Mexican food, but we have diversified to cater to more people because our town has many communities, “Ankit said. “For example, we have butter chicken that is added into the burrito. Our tagline is ‘Mexcellent Burritos where burritos loves butter chicken.’ We have a variety of fries. We try to be pocket book friendly so people can have a meal for under $10.”

Jasmita had her own restaurant previously, however, the pandemic created a situation that just wasn’t favourable for the business.

After moving to Shelburne, they realized the time was right, and Shelburne was a great location for this type of restaurant. With previous experience with Mexican and Indian food, Ankit and Jasmita found that combining the flavours of both cultures worked very well.

“Mexican food and Indian food both use a lot of spices, and similar spices,” Ankit explained. “We did some experiments and created some new recipes.”

The result is some very unique and flavour-filled dishes.

The menu is varied and delicious.

Mexcellent Burritos is located at 120 Owen Sound Street in Shelburne and is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
