A currito you say?
For those of you who haven’t yet experienced the delights of Wrapchic in the North Western Arcade, what I affectionately term a currito, is a whole new take on fusion food, matching authentic Indian flavours with Mexican streetfood favourites.
Last week Wrapchic turned 1 year old, and if their growing popularity is anything to go by, they’ll be around a lot longer than that! From lunchtime on Friday they hosted a birthday party where their loyal Facebook followers were able to have lunch for free.
I popped along around 1 and the whole place was packed, but no amount of queuing could put a downer on the event. Everyone waiting was served up a complimentary lassi, I went for a coconut and my friend had mango, both of which were gorgeous. When we got to the front, I had a burrito with Rajahstani chicken, mildly spiced and marinated in coriander and mint, alongside perfectly cooked basmati rice, salad and a yoghurt and mint raita sauce. I wish I could meet the man whose idea it was to mix these two titans of cuisine together, as his invention is simply fantastic. The chicken was so tender, cooked to perfecion, and absolutely bursting with flavour. The portion size was huge, and really filling (though I did save room for some of Wrapchic’s birthday cake), but the absolute best thing about Wrapchic is their strict no fry policy, meaning that their food is healthy as well as deliciously tasty.
