Baja Bud's Del Norte

I was recently told that certain restaurants may put eggs in their guacamole. This is not the case for Baja Bud's Del Norte, a southern California chain.

Their email response:

  • "Beans: beans, water onions, salt and nothing else
  • Rice: rice, onions, vegetarian soup base, a Mexican spice called Achiote (made mostly from annatto seed and purely vegetarian)
  • Corn Tortillas: from Masa (corn, water, lime) hand made
  • White Flour Tortilla: typical commercial bakery product but only vegetable oil, no margarine
  • Whole Wheat Tortilla: as above but does contain margarine
  • Salsa Cruda: tomatoes, onions, cilantro, salt, pepper, garlic powder (spicy contains Serrano chiles)
  • Tomatillo Salsa: tomatillos, onions, salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • Salsa Roja: about twenty items including vegetarian soup base but no meat, fish or egg
The Veggie Burrito on a regular tortilla is 100% vegetarian with no meat or fish product of any kind. The same for our Black Bean and Tostada Salads (vegetarian versions) and the Chile Relleno. All these do contain dairy."

In addition, they do not use lard, their cheese is made with "microbial/GMO-free rennet", and as mentioned above their guacamole is eggless.
