What do you get when you cross a chicken burrito with a Vietnamese rice paper roll? This recipe for fragrant wild rice, crisp veggies and poached chicken in a translucent wrapper. Contributed by New Life Restaurant in Shek Kip Mei, it's another example of Hongkongers' penchant for fusion dishes.1 May 2012 - 12:00am
