With our vegetarian and veg-curious readership in mind, we set out on the daunting task of finding the best veggie burritos Sonoma County has to offer. Not to be too confident, but we’re pretty sure we nailed it.
Sonoma County’s best veggie burritos can be found at Sebastopol’s Papas and Pollo, where two vegetarian burritos tie for first place on this list. Both burritos are huge, and made with (vegan) Spanish rice, (vegan) black beans, Monterey jack cheese, pico de gallo salsa, organic local greens and big hunks of Wildwood organic tofu.
The Tofu Temptation burrito comes with a heavy sprinkling of nutritional yeast, for those craving a little more of a salty, cheesy flavor. The Tofu Verde burrito is served with a house-made chile verde sauce, which adds a bright and zesty kick.
Even our meat-loving, tofu-hating dining companion found it hard to stop chowing down on them. “I never thought I’d eat this much tofu,” she said.
At Papas and Pollo — a Sebastopol staple for almost 25 years —nothing comes from cans and nearly everything is made fresh on site.
This surfer-Mex spot (which they bill as Seb-Mex) earned extra bonus points for the menu’s willingness to cater to health-conscious tastes, including the option of making any burrito “naked” by skipping the tortilla and placing the ingredients on a bed of organic greens; using tofu as a meat replacement for any dish; and its list of protein- and veggie-stuffed yams, which come chock full of black beans, cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream and your filling of choice.
