New World Tortilla’s Chicken Salad Wrap

New World Tortilla is one of my favorite lunch spots, they now have 3 locations. Original Burlington Vermont location, UVM, and now Essex Vermont. As the name implies “New World” has great wraps.

New World Tortilla’s Chicken Salad Wrap
This is the wrap, unwrapped. Something that is classic New World Tortilla (or New World for short) is the toasted wrap, and the little wax bag to hold the bottom of the wrap.

The Wrap after a few bites.

The toasted wrap means that it’s easier to bite into and you’re assured that you won’t get that gummy texture that sometimes comes from a cold warp. The chicken salad contains grilled chicken breast that is chopped and combined with fresh dill, halved red grapes, mayo and typically shredded romaine lettuce. This wrap has great texture, and great flavor. I like the fresh dill and sweet grape combination. The fact that the wrap is made with chicken breast means that it has different texture, than if the rest of the chicken were used. At one point this wrap was served with mesclun greens, which while they don’t have the same satisfying crunch of romaine, the slight bitterness of the greens was a nice counterpoint to the sweetness of the grapes. I may request a romaine / mesclun mix next time if possible.

Fun with foil

Pictured above is a little fun with the recyclable foil, standing the wrap up while I get something to drink. At under six dollars this wrap is a steal, but only on Thursdays!

    Great post! I’m looking forward to reading about all the good places to eat for the next time I visit Burlington.

    By the way, nice touch adding the quarter to show us the relative size! That thing is huge!

    Hi Nick,
    Great website! Really enjoyed reading and looking at all of your lunch spots. Do you cook at all…..? 🙂 I will check out some of your recommendations. My favorite is Pho Dang. I try to get there as often as possible. Try Wings over Burlington again. I really like their boneless wings, great flavor, no skin to worry about and easy to eat. Thank you for your great website.
