Crepe de ChineIt’s light as a feather, whisper soft, and beckons you to try it… Say “Ni Hao” to Beijing’s mouthwateringly delicious street snack: “the Jianbing,” now being served hot and fresh off the griddle at Mr. Bing in Central. Sink your teeth into one of these savoury crepe sandwiches and you’ll understand why founder Brian Goldberg was hot to take these freshly made delights out of the city’s street carts and onto the global food scene. Recreating the traditional Jianbing with optional modern twists, Mr. Bing’s first Hong Kong outpost under the escalator on Wellington Street, is home to just four savoury options, the Original Jianbing, a traditional Beijing-style vegetarian crepe chock full of herbs and spices, the Peking Duck Bing (our personal favourite!), the Char Siu Bing, which is the original plus BBQ pork, and the Shanghai Bing, which is the original with softer crisps, plus pork floss.  No matter, which option you select, you will have a choice of flavoured flours for your homemade crepe, which will then be topped with a fresh egg, secret house sauce and the Jianbing’s key ingredient “Baocui”, crispy Beijing-style crackers, which give each crepe just the right crunch.  For the perfect breakfast or afternoon treat, check out one of two sweet Jianbing options, the peanut butter and condensed milk filled HK Cha Chaan Bing or the kaya and shredded coconut filled Singa-Bing.

Served hot off the griddle from early morning till late night, these pocket-sized delights have already been inducing giant size crepe-vings all around town!
