Mr Bing, located in Urbanspace Vanderbilt, serves jianbing, traditional Northern Chinese crepes, a street food that the founder, Brian Goldberg, tried while studying Chinese in Beijing in 1998. The way the crepes or bings are made is with mung bean, rice and wheat flour crepe coated with egg, sesame seeds, scallions, hoisin sauce, crispy chili paste, cilantro, and crunchy wontons. Then, you can pick the filling. Jodi ordered the classic vegetarian bing that is the crepe with no filling.
On my side, I tried the Peking Duck Bing, that is the classic bing with Beijing style roasted duck. This was fantastic: the crepe, folded like a sandwich, was very good, soft, and the duck succulent.
This was delicious and different from the classic crepes we see more often. Mr Bing is a good address to know and I definitely recommend it.
Enjoy (I did)!
