A food review written by: Lee Sonogan
(18th Century) Main course/Meat, vegetables
This meal is a healthier alternative? Most wraps are made with a soft flatbread rolled around a filling/s. The usual flat breads are wheat-flour tortillas, lavash, or pita. Fillings usually consists of cold sliced meat, poultry, or fish accompanied by shredded lettuce, diced tomato or pico de gallo, guacamole, mushrooms, bacon, grilled onions, cheese, and a sauce, such as mayo or honey mustard. So much more combinations you can try with a wrap. A wrap is similar to a taco.
Mexicans, Armenians, Middle Easterners, Greeks and Turks have been eating wraps since before the 1900s. Mexicans refer to them as burritos, and they come in different ingredient varieties, primarily wheat flour or corn. America and other countrys joined the food consuming In the 1990’s. The wrap in its Beth Dolan of Stamford, Connecticut is the waitress credited for serving the first wrap after the restaurant had run out of bread.
Restaurants such as Camille’s Sidewalk Cafe, Sonic Drive-In, Jason’s Deli, Buffalo Wild Wings, Subway, Chick-fil-A, Roly Poly and McAlister’s Deli serve wraps. KFC now serves its chicken in a wrap as menu choice, with lettuce, mayonnaise and salsa. McDonald’s has a snack wrap, with a fried, or grilled chicken strip, lettuce, Cheddar, and ranch dressing. Smokey Bones Barbeque and Grill has recently introduced a Portobello Chicken Wrap to broaden their selection of grilled menu items. Wraps are also very popular in Australia and New Zealand.

Wraps are for both vegans and meat eaters. I want to try a deep-fried wrap/burrito. They are called a Chimichanga. My first wrap was at McDonald’s and was the grilled Chicken Alioli McWrap. It is spicy and one of my favourite spicy foods. Wraps can be cooked in different ways. Steamed, grilled or crispy, they all are healthy for you. When you add extra fillings the calories will go up and equal to the calories you would eat for dinner. I recommend this food to everyone who likes a burger or a sandwich.
