Craving for two of the top 10 cuisines in the world at the same time is difficult, you want Indian (top 6) and your friend wants Mexican (top 9)… what will you do? Where will you go? Wrapchic solved our Dubai problems for craving Indian and Mexican at the same time. They recently opened a new branch in JLT. Their first branch is in Burjuman, I wanted to try it out when I went to watch a movie, but I thought it was unhealthy not knowing that all their dishes are made from fresh, never-fried ingredients, and stuffed with unique fillings. When I knew of this, I visited my friend who lives in JLT and told her I want Indian food while she wants Mexican. Wrapchic is just the correct spot for this.
Their JLT branch is laid back and casual, a nice place to catch up with friends that you have not seen for a long time. I’m glad my friend lives in JLT, I will be lost if I was alone. It’s just a short walk from the metro (if you know the place) If you are not familiar with the place… just a piece of advice, don’t use Google Maps. Ask around where Cluster J is and you will be there in few minutes.
The menu was overwhelming, I want to try every single style and filling! I asked Creziel and Reydel what can they suggest that we get. I want something heavy so I ordered the burrito, the filling they recommended was Chicken Mughlai. My friend ordered the Mutton Hyderabadi Burrito and they suggested that she have it with green chutney. They also suggested we get the Paneer Masala Quesadilla with mango chutney… Paneer is something I couldn’t say no to, so we had that too!
While the ladies were preparing our burrito, one burrito will surely be good for sharing. It’s a better way to share that way you can try all their fillings.
For the Mutton Hyderabadi, my friend requested for medium spicy with black beans and tomato rice. I was a little bit skeptical about it as Mutton Hyderabadi is usually spicy and my friend doesn’t like spicy at all. When she had her first bite, she really liked it. I seldom eat Indian food with her as she has a very sensitive palate and tummy. I am so happy that she liked it. She shared her burrito with me and it was indeed delicious. Even if it was mild spicy it was still tasty. The spices are harmoniously balanced and not overpowering each other. Perfect combination of flavors.
My Chicken Mughlai Burrito has tomato rice, red beans, red cabbage, lettuce, and cheese. The chicken is properly marinated that every strand of the chicken breast has the tikka spice which gives it a medium spiciness which I like. You can taste the perfect fusion of Indian and Mexican. The only downside is… it is too messy to eat since it is massive. I only finished half and ate the other half for dinner when I got home.
The Paneer Masala Quesadilla with mango chutney is my favorite among the three. Looooots of paneer cubes, the tava spice coating made me fall in love with paneer even more. The smooth tikka and cheese made it creamier that it melts in your mouth with every bite. Just the quesadilla itself is enough, but when I dipped it in the mango chutney I was confused if I should eat it with or without chutney as it was equally good. The mango chutney is made of ripe Indian mango with a little masala and black sesame seeds. I liked it so much I ordered another Paneer Masala Quesadilla for takeaway.
To quench our thirst, we had Jarritos Mandarin which is like mandarin flavored sparkling water. I thought it would be sweet like a soft drink, but it wasn’t. It has a little sweetness to it which is quite addictive and you will be tempted to ask if they sell it in liters.
Wrapchic is a place that I will definitely be back to… serving two of my favorite cuisines with fresh, tasty, healthy meals! This visit deserves a 5/5 rating. I am excited for my next visit and will definitely try other fillings, especially the Prawn Amiritsari, Chicken Rajasthani and Mango Lassi.
