If you like burritos, then you’ll certainly enjoy this East-meets-Mexican masterpiece: a burrito stuffed with duck and Chinese chorizo. Yep, that’s right! Greasy, fatty Chinese meats and fragrant jasmine rice rolled up in a nice, toasty tortilla.

Some bok choy was added to balance out the meats’ oiliness. But health-wise, don’t expect much from the vegetable. All of the flavor has been absorbed by each grain of the jasmine rice, packing this burrito with a truckload of calories. Delicious calories, if I may add.

So, if you want a different, Oriental twist to your usual burrito, load up on the duck and chorizo and start heating those tortillas. The burritos and jasmine tea make an excellent pair.
