Learn About Our Roots
Mr González Mexican Cuisine is proudly a Canadian Company. It was founded by Leodegario González (Leo) in February 2019. He immigrated to Canada from Mexico by the end of 2015.With the help of his wife Elizabeth, he refined the recipes to make them as authentic as possible, using local and imported ingredients.For a few months in 2019 the business was just doing catering. The purpose was to do the marketing research and find out what the possible clientele wanted to have in a Mexican restaurant.
After trying different dishes, in August 2019 the doors were opened to the public on 550 Main Street in Yarmouth, NS. The first item on the menu was build your own taco. Chorizo (homemade Mexican spicy sauce), Tinga (Smoked Chipotle chicken) and Picadillo (Ground beef with carrots and potatoes) were the first meat options. Carnitas (Mexican style pulled pork) was added in 2021.Two types of rice and two types of beans were included. A salad bar to compliment the tacos was also part of the deal. For salsas, there was a mild smoked chipotle, a medium imported green tomato and jalapenos, and spicy roasted peppers and olive oil. Habanero spicy salsa was included later.
