Winner: Brothers Grimm
Restaurant: Wolfnights, New York City
Food cost: $2.75
Ingredients: Chestnut and chili dough, grilled chicken, pickled shiitake, raisins, pickles, plantain chips and chipotle aioli.
What makes it special: There are no plain tortillas here. Wolfnights encases each of its wraps in a unique, baked-to-order dough. For the Brothers Grimm, it’s a rich and spicy dough filled to the brim with a combination of ingredients that balances sweet and salty and soft and crunchy.
What others are saying: “The dough, to my amazement, tasted like chestnut, and you could see and taste the spicy flakes of chili throughout,” Sunny T. gushed on Yelp. “The chicken was grilled to perfection, and the saltiness of the pickled mushrooms and pickles went beautifully with the sweetness of the raisins. The plantain chips added a great crunch and the creaminess of the chipotle aioli really tied the whole wrap (burrito) together. This place seriously puts all the Chipotle burritos to shame.”
