Best Burritos in the Bay Area


Burritos in Mill ValleyI think I have found the best burritos in the world! Indian-Mexican fusion. Avatar’s Punjabi Burritos in Mill Valley is the sister restaurant to Avatar’s restaurant in Sausalito. Avatar Punjabi burritos are my new obsession.

Avatar’s can and will make any dish “Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, or to your specific taste. No dietary restrictions!”

There is a sign on the outside of the restaurant that tells you how to order. It says, “our basic Punjabi burrito is made with fresh curried garbanzo beans, potatoes, basmati rice, fresh herb salsa, seasonal fruit chutney, carrot pickle, non-fat yoghurt and homemade tamarind sauce. You can add any of the following food items to modify our basic burrito.”

I like a place that makes it easy to figure out what you want. Today I ordered the Curry Chicken burrito. Total cost $8.00. It’s big enough that Celia and I can share one and be satisfied.

This place could be described as a hole in the wall. I’ve walked past Avatar’s a million times and never tried it. Take a lesson from me, don’t hesitate to try a hole in the wall kind of restaurant… sometimes you discover the most amazing food and people.

Avatars is a great place to stop after a hike or bike ride in Mill Valley.

    Hi, Sally!
    As you know, I live in Mill Valley and like you, have passed this restaurant many times. I did walk in once several months ago to request their take-out menu, but as of yet, have not ordered their food. Well, your review here has prompted me to revisit AVATAR PUNJABI. Will let you know as soon as I order and eat my first burrito. Sounds yummy!
    Thanks for reminding me!
