Plato Wraps: Sandwich with a Twist!

If, by any chance, you drop by SM Mall of Asia, I suggest you visit this little booth selling what you can consider as their own version of the sandwich, but with a twist! It's called Plato Wraps, and it can be found at the 2/F North Wing of MOA, in the open air portion right after you exit the main mall via the theater booth. However, remember that this is the NORTH WING...right-hand side of MOA if you're facing Manila Bay (coz there's a very similar exit on the South Wing...and you definitely won't find Plato Wraps there...Ü).

Anyway, I say "sandwich-with-a-twist" because the filling or spread they use is what you'd usually see in a regular sandwich: tuna...chicken...hotdog...BUT (and there's a big but!), it's the wrap that they use that makes this creation unique. They have this circular bread, similar to a small pizza pie crust (almost like the size of your hand with all figners stretched out) but is soft to the touch and sans all the toppings. They then put this on a toaster, the one which opens up and closes like book...much like an iron press, and after one flip (turnover) and around a minute of heating, the wrap comes out with these distinct stripes on each side. They then put whatever filling/spread you like (my favorite is chicken), together with whatever veggies or add ons are included with the chosen filling (with the chicken filling, a few slices of cucumber are included), fold the wrap such that the fillings are somewhat folded in a half circle (like a taco) and voila, the Plato wrap is served to you in a small plastic for easy handling & munching.

I very much enjoyed Plato Wraps the first time I tasted it that's why a trip to MOA is not complete without it. As i've mentioned, my favorite is their Chunky Chicken filling since it's very yummy, but their Ham n Cheese is good as well ( I didn't like the Wrap n Roll, which is their version of the hotdog sandwich).

Everytime I order, I add P10.00 for their Pesto Wrap which I just adore coz it's very tasty & delicious. They also have Wheat Wrap, for an additional P5.00, but this one I've yet to try.

I believe Plato Wraps have branches distributed in the Metro Manila area, but for now, i'm only aware of their MOA and Virra Mall branch. Nonetheless, below is a list of the fillings they offer, as well as their prices (as of writing this blog).

So if you find yourself at MOA, do try & check out Plato Wraps at the 2nd Floor. I'm sure you'll love these "sandwiches-with-a-twist."

Chunky Chicken P39.00
Ham n Cheese P39.00
Yummy Tuna P39.00
Wrap n Roll P39.00
Very veggie P45.00

Also available: Platito Wraps @ P25.00
