St Kilda has now been introduced to the exciting taste sensation of the unique & authentic San Francisco Burrito and Mexican food, at the new Bay City Burrito – dine in or takeaway eatery

Bay City Burrito is not just another restaurant taking advantage of Melbourne’s Mexican wave; it’s an eatery that represents the vibrant culture of San Francisco’s Latino Mission District from the inside out. Like St Kilda, San Francisco’s Mission District is a melting pot of colour and culture. So, innovative restaurateur Gary Mink selected St Kilda as the perfect home for Bay City Burritos this side of the equator.

Gary was born and bred in San Francisco, and like a true local, he always headed to family-owned Taquerias in the Mission, for his authentic burrito and Mexican food fix. When Gary moved to Melbourne, he brought his childhood experience with him and set about to enlist the skills of Melbourne designers to develop the Mission District Burrito concept and to find the right district for all to enjoy.


It all started in the 1960s, when San Francisco’s working class was feeling the heat from the economic recession. Burritos were bulked up with beans and rice to satiate people in the Mission District on the cheap. Now, Bay City Burrito is rolling that San Francisco Mission Mexican Style Burrito on its tortilla by adding quality produce, marinated chicken, lean grilled steak, Carnitas style pork, and seafood (and Vegetarian), producing an authentic Mission-Style delicacy.

To produce“the best damn burritos in town”, Bay City more than achieves this with an extensive menu including Mission-style burritos; the absolute star, is the massive Bay City Bomber Burrito itself, with both lean grilled Steak and Marinated chicken, Guacamole, Coriander, Spanish rice, Black beans, Salsa, Pico de Gallo, Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, Black olives, Sour Cream, all wrapped up in a large grilled flour tortilla.

The all day Breakfast Burrito is definitely worth a try, alongside other Mission district inspired tacos, quesadillas, nachos and salads. If traditional Mission-style food isn’t for you, choose from a range of menu items inspired by San Francisco’s other ethnic neighborhoods. On weekends breakfast is served with Mexican inspired egg dishes such as Huevos Rancheros, Huevos Rotos (broken eggs), Chorizo and Scrambled egg Tacos.

Everything at Bay City Burrito is prepared on site each day, made fresh to order while you wait, and all items can be customized with any of the fresh ingredients you choose. Patrons can chat with cooks and watch as they grill tortillas on the spot and assemble burritos using the large selection of fresh ingredients and Salsas. Passers-by will be powerless as the aroma of grilled fish, marinated chicken and lean steak wafts alluringly from the grill inside.

Fully licensed, Bay City Burrito offers a selection of beer, ciders and wine (stay tuned for their signature Margaritas) to perfectly complement any meal in Bay City’s recycled wood and concrete-themed dining room. Whether you’re looking for a snack or a meal, Bay City offers up a menu to suit everyone’s taste and dietary requirements including many items that can be made Gluten free, Vegetarian and Vegan.

And what a location to find that happy medium between slow food and fast food; whether you dine in or take-away, it’s all there for you with St Kilda beach up road, the iconic Luna Park and O’Donnell Gardens within full view, and busy Acland Street just around the corner. Bay City Burrito will attract groups of friends out for a hearty feed, the time-constrained and families searching for a fresh, authentic treat!
