Magness Lake, in Heber Springs, is a magnet for swans
First, I ventured into pseudo-Thai territory with Jimmy’s, “Thai One On!” wrap. Here a thin veggie tortilla gets a fairly healthy handful of spiced and diced chicken breast, along with Thai basil, bok choy, lettuce, julienned carrots, and a light lime vinaigrette. I find it incredibly difficult not to enjoy something with basil, even more so with Thai basil. The bright, aromatic and almost peppery flavor of this beautiful leaf is among the most precious of spices known to the culinary world. The basil, in combination with the crispy bok choy, zesty lime dressing, and thinly cut raw carrot, created a mélange of earthy, bright flavor. Ultimately however, the chicken breast left a little to be desired. Not as blaringly awful as the processed chicken chunks one might expect from the likes of Subway or the like, but still lacking flavor and spice nonetheless. There was room for improvement, but the wrap receives a passing grade on account of its honorable use of vegetables.
I think it’s safe to say I’m still playing for team sandwich or team burrito. The wrap, while novel, has yet to make an overwhelmingly positive impression on me, but I can appreciate some of its capabilities. Jimmy’s has the blueprints in place for an excellent experience, but the execution is still a little faulty. Perhaps, Jimmy needs to get as serious about his wraps as he is with his sandwiches.
