Best Rice bowls and Salad Bowls
California Burrito is famous for our signature bowls. Customers have the choice between black beans, pinto beans, fajita veggies, tomato salsa, sweet corn, jalapenos, cheese and sour cream to keep their bowl company. These include our rice bowls and salad bowls. From vegetarian Mexican bowls to vegetable salads and chicken Salads, California Burrito has the biggest range of bowls in India and many people consider California Burrito as a salad specialist with so many types of salads. Many customers love our crispy mushroom salads with salsa, corn and avocado. We only use fresh lettuce from Ooty in our salads which is crispy and freshly picked.
Large Burrito Wraps and Mexican Tacos
The tortilla, which is a thin Mexican “roti” is used to create our popular dish, the burrito. California Burrito uses tortillas made from highest quality refined wheat flour and corn flour. The corn flour is processed using the nixtamalization process where the corn is soaked and cooked in an alkaline solution and then washed. Lastly, the corn hulls are removed and the rich corn is dried and then ground into flour. Many people in India have had tacos in Mexico or the USA. For some, their first taco was the “taco mexicana” from dominos pizza. Tacos are a classic mexican street food staple which is also enjoyed at home for breakfast, lunch dinner or snacks. California Burrito has a wide range of options in tacos, with both soft flour tacos and crispy corn tacos. The newly launched Taco Squad promotion highlights the flavours and exciting toppings which allows the customer to indulge in the mexican street food experience.
Nachos with Queso (Liquid Cheese) and Cheese Quesdillas
One of the favorite dishes in India is loaded Nachos, full of corn nacho chips with dip, topped with liquid cheese also known as “queso.” We serve both corn nachos and wheat nachos to cater to the Indian palette. One aspect that makes nachos so tasty is the nachos cheese which adds richness to the dish. Cheese being a favourite food, we also serve quesadillas which are tortillas filled with cheese and then grilled to perfection. Customers may choose to add grilled veggies, chicken, beans and many more fresh vegetarian toppings.
Specially Grown Tomatillos and HOMEMADE Chipotle in Adobo
Mexican food is rich with special ingredients developed over generations. Tomatillos are like baby tomatoes wearing husk jackets. The originate from Mexico where they are a popular ingredient in making salsa due to their unique flavour which is a delectable combination of tart and citrusy and brightens up any dish. California Burrito has specially tied up with farmers to grow this ingredient so customers in India can enjoy this authentic salsa taste. For the past 8 years we have worked to develop the famous and special CHIPOTLE IN ADOBO sauce which is prized for its rich spicy flavor with smoky undertones. With freshly grown jalapenos which are dried and smoked, then pickled in special adobo sauce, these rich mexican flavours make our food so unique.
The greatest topping to keep our bowl company is guacamole. Our signature guacamole is made with Avocado, a superfood that goes by many names including the name “Butterfruit". In fact, we love guacamole so much we imported Hass avocado trees from California to grow in Coorg and Kodaikanal with local farmers. This is the first Hass Avocado plantation in India. We are excited to launch our Hass avocado guacamole in 2022.
