best vegetarian burrito?

where can I find the best veggie burrito? (any where in SF and the peninsula)

i like "super" vegetarian burritos with refried beans, rice, cheese, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. NO grilled veggies like peppers or onions.

i'm originally from the bay area, but now i live in NYC where no decent taquerias exist. i'm making a list of where to go on my next visit. i usually go to la cumbre, tres amigos, zona rosa, pancho villa, and los primos.

any other suggestions are appreciated!

  1. Taqueria Cancun, though they use whole beans (can't recall if they also have refried) and sliced avocado (i.e., instead of guac).

    PS: For non-veggie burritos, I recommend trying El Farolito and Taqueria San Jose.

        I second this. I had one yesterday and it was super delicious as always. Get extra salsa too.

          i actually went to papalote during my last trip but wasn't a fan...maybe it was what i ordered but i didn't think it was very authentic. i like my veggie burritos without fake meat. thanks though!

            I'm also of the school that Papalote is highly-overrated.

            From the sound of your preferences, you should definitely try Taqueria Cancun.

              I find the burritos solid - not the greatest, but decent. Sometimes tastes a little too "clean" if that makes sense. The salsa is what keeps me coming back.
