Not much of a fan of greasy fast food, I nevertheless occasionally feel the urge to indulge in something quick, easy and delicious. The newish Bing Go franchise produces sweet and savoury crepes, and is based on the Chinese street food “Jianbing” that originates from Beijing. AB and I were shopping in Karrinyup and discovered the Bing Go eatery in the food court.
Deftly cooked on the large round hot plate, the crepes are lined with egg and filled and rolled according to your choice of filling.
The Beijing Bing with marinated chicken thigh was my choice, while AB went for the Moo Bing, featuring marinated beef, red onion and fresh mint. We were both happy with our choices, and enjoyed the addition of fresh salad and sauce with the Bings.
Although light and fresh, the Bings are massive and quite filling, and it was a battle to finish mine. I made the rookie mistake of taking off the wrapping to photograph my Bing, which promptly caused a major Bing meltdown. As AB chomped his way through his neatly wrapped affair, he laughed as lettuce and carrot shreds from my Bing made their way to the table top.
The bings are lighter than traditional wraps, and there’s less carbs than usual so you don’t feel pangs of junk food guilt. It’s pretty awesome discovering a new fast food that actually feels healthy. The Bing fillings include chicken, duck, beef, lamb and prawns, and there are two breakfast varieties with either egg and bacon, or egg and mushrooms. The sweet varieties with nutella, coconut and strawberries also look scrumptious, but obviously the “healthy” moniker flies out the window with these treats.
