You read the title correct. A Kung Pao Burrito……..essentially a Chinese Burrito.
It’s a novel concept and it’s been brought to you by China GO XP.
China GO XP is the latest establishment in the China GO restaurant’s in Wichita; open since April of 2015. They are located at 13th and Greenwich at the Plazzio outside of the 13th Street Warren Theatre. You can’t miss it, it’s right on the south side of 13th street in front of the theatre.
They are open Monday – Saturday 11 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 11 am – 8 pm. You can check out their menu on their website: http://wichitachinago.co/Home/chinagoxp
China GO XP features much of the same fast Chinese food that’s all out available for you to grab on the go; consider it a higher quality Chinese restaurant than your simple Dillon’s. What sets China GO XP apart is their new feature: the Kung Pao Burrito!
The concept is very simple. It’s like your Chipotle set up but a slight twist. You can choose a burrito or a bowl; then you choose Steamed Rice, Fried Rice, or Veggies Low Mein. After that, you choose your meat (up to three options). There are many options like kung pao chicken, teriyaki chicken, broccoli beef, kalbi beef, etc. Lastly, you can choose your final options like lettuce, cilantro, sriracha, orange sauce, or others.
They then wrap it up in foil and you’re on your way! Upon hearing about the Kung Pao Burrito, I just had to try it out for myself at least once. It sounds so simple. Some friends questioned it when I first told them but let’s be serious. It’s technically Chinese food inside a tortilla. It’s not that off the wall!
On my visit, I went with a burrito with kung pao chicken, fried rice, cilantro and a mixture of sriracha and hoisin sauce. After a few bites, it was what I expected. It’s Chinese food but with a tortilla. Some people when they eat Chinese food, they keep the rice separate from the entree meal. This burrito mixes it all together and it’s fantastic. The choice to get both sriracha and hoisin was the best decision I made since graduating college. The tortilla really doesn’t take away from the meal. If you like burritos and Chinese food, this could be the ideal mix for you.
I’m a fan and would try it again. One of my friends went there after I did and tried it with the Orange sauce and to quote him (I apologize for the profanity): “That shit’s legit!”
So two people have had one and two people have liked it.
The price of a burrito is $6.59 for one meat; $7.59 for two meats and $8.29 for three meats. Compare that to burrito’s at Chipotle which range from $6.50 to $7.20 for just one meat and at Qdoba which is $7.80 to $8.40 for one meat.
The owner and the staff there were very accommodating and explained it all to me and offered to let me sample anything I wanted. They were the same with other customers that came in. It was nice to see the owner at the restaurant working just as hard as the rest of the staff.
I’ll definitely be going again for a Kung Pao Burrito. Give it a try sometime and let me know what you think! I believe it’s currently only available at the 13th and Greenwich location.
