Description

SF Weekly's Description

For its popularity, Papalote is kind of a one-trick pony. Its healthy, if somewhat bland, takes on taqueria standards include a grilled zucchini and eggplant burrito and pechuga al achiote, as well as the standard chicken and steak, cooked to order. They're really all vehicles for Papalote's magic ingredient: that roasted-tomato salsa. Smoky, tangy, and deep, it electrifies everything it touches, and you'll see most diners spooning more salsa into the burrito with every bite. You could eat it by the jar — and now can; they keep the cooler stocked with salsa for purchase.

    Have some good ol' chips and salsa...it's #46 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.

    fish tacos have a ton of amazingly tasty fish cooked in white wine

  • Jason S. on 03/12/09

    Vegetarians: Try the soyrizo burrito. Also, even their refried beans are vegan. Plus their amazing homemade salsa. Combine all three: dang.

    The salsa is epic.
