Daclaud Lee was just casually messing around the kitchen today and he came up with a pretty awesome recipe.  Daclaud has always been a fan of Chipotle and their tale on burritos, so he decided to make something that was was Asian and Mexican inspired (deliberately leaving out the beans, because Daclaud can only work with ingredients he had on hand at his restaurant, which does not stock beans).  As he was contemplating about how popular Chipotle has been growing recently (as well as all the knock offs such as Piada), Daclaud has come up with a tasty Asian Alternative to the popular “wrap”.  If Chipotle can have burrito wraps and Piada can have Pasta wraps, then why not Chinese Fried Rice wraps?
