How I heard of this place: Many years ago, a friend (which friend escapes me, now) introduced me to the flavorful, fresh tastes of World Wrapps. It has been since then that I have had the opportunity to go back, but when Ellie suggested it, it was easy to concede!
Type of cuisine: “The first World Wrapps was opened in 1996 in San Francisco, CA by a group of friends who wanted a restaurant that didn’t yet exist: one that served delicious food that was both better tasting and better for you than traditional “fast-food,” yet still fit into their fast-paced on the go lifestyles. The result – real gourmet “meals” wrapped up in flavorful tortillas that can be eaten anywhere. With the incredible success that soon followed, the founders quickly learned they weren’t the only ones looking for exactly this kind of place.”
Ambiance: Ellie commented that this particular franchise feels very different inside than others she has been to. The space is open and lit by floor-to-ceiling windows across the front and side of the space. Tall bar-like tables and chairs are available at the front, with a view of the lake. Along the side, in a more private space, one can sit at wooden tables and chairs. It is a casual establishment, perfect for a take-away meal, for children and for large groups of friends before or after a walk around the lake. The order counter is easy to find and the food is delivered to your table when ready.
According to the World Wrapps website, “World Wrapps began as a community-based, small business and we remain true to that core today. We are active in the communities in which we operate, by giving back to local non-profit organizations, schools, and neighborhood organizations, especially those that promote health and wellness and support our children. World Wrapps restaurants are a fun, hip place to grab a bite to eat on the run, or sit down and enjoy a quality meal. Above all else, our goal is to consistently deliver the highest quality food and best service possible to our loyal customers, and continue to give our guests a delicious, healthy alternative to traditional fast food.”
What I ordered: Ellie and I shared a wrap at her recommendation: the samurai salmon ($7.69 tax included): fresh salmon, avocado, Soy-Wasabi vinaigrette, daikon sprouts, nori, cucumbers, green onions, jasmine rice and sesame seeds in a spinach tortilla.
What I loved: We both agreed that what makes this wrap perfect is the spicy, nose-burn, eye-watering wasabi vinaigrette! But the combination of that with the freshness of the crispy vegetables and soft, juicy salmon made for a delicious lunch.
Why I loved it: It was like sushi in a tortilla! The quick ease of selection and ordering, the freshness of the food and the taste of the wrap (also available in a bowl) was something for which I could easily return.
Cost: Average to high ($7 average for a wrap)
