The founder of this food truck came up with his concept while traveling in Beijing and eating the local street food-- particularly, the jianbing. This quick traditional dish is similar to a crepe, and often contains hoisin sauce, scallions, sesame seeds, and egg. However, Mr. Bing can customize their creations to your liking and often adds different meats like duck, pork, and chicken to the mix.
