With another location added near the city’s core, we’re making a home in Saskatoon. The newest restaurant is located just five minutes from the University of Saskatchewan, along 8th St E near Preston Ave S. This is the third BarBurrito in the city with more to come.
We sat down with this location’s owner, Tanmay, to learn about his journey from medicine to the food industry.
Back in his home country, Tanmay was practising as a physician in India when he chose to move to Saskatoon for university. Although medicine is his passion, he wanted to expand his horizons and run a business outside of the medical field. Once he tried the food at BarBurrito, he was hooked.
Tanmay aims to work hard to make this location self-sufficient. Eventually, when the restaurant can run on its own, he wants to turn his attention back to medicine. “I was always inspired by the medical profession,” he explains. “I study for my exams in my free time.”
