Bing Boy at Churchill Centre in Adelaide is part of a nationwide chain that sells an Asian wrap known as bing, which consists of your choice of ingredients wrapped in a thin pancake. All the bings served by Bing Boy include spring onions, coriander, sesame seeds and wonton skins with your choice of filling wrapped in a pancake topped with a free-range egg. There are also gluten free versions available.

Currently our favourite, the Pretty n Peking, had a flavour similar to Peking Duck Pancakes, the first course of Peking Duck meals served at Chinese restaurants. The cucumber and pickled carrots added a refreshing element to the bing to balance out the rich flavour of the duck and hoisin sauce.

A good choice for seafood lovers is Smoking Salmon, featuring tender pieces of smoked salmon with just the right amount of smoked flavour. The pickled carrots added a bit of crunch and the wasabi mayonnaise provided a hint of tanginess.

The roast beef in their Mad Ming was cooked just right and was nicely complemented by the mushrooms. The mixed salad was a good partner to the beef and mushrooms with the Bing Boy sauce tying everything together.

For those who like something with a bit of a Japanese flavour, their Teriyaki King is a great choice. The marinated chicken was cooked to perfection and the bing had just the right amount of teriyaki sauce to give the bing the sweet-savoury flavour that is associated with Teriyaki Chicken. All the bings came served in an easy to tear paper "sleeve" to make eating them easier.

For dessert you can choose from one of their dessert pancakes, all of which are made with gluten free wraps. The Strawberry Swing option we chose had a wonderful balance of strawberries, Nutella and strawberry sauce encased within a thin and flavoursome wrap. It came with a serving of whipped cream to slightly tone down the rich flavour of the Nutella. Other choices include Apple Custard, Bananas in Bejing (bananas, coconut and Nutella) and in certain stores, Matcha Loving (macadamia nuts, strawberries and green tea yoghurt).

Watching the bings being made was quite enjoyable. The staff was very proficient – spreading the batter quickly and evenly on the hotplate with a wooden tool then flipping the big pancake with a wooden spatula and finally wrapping the ingredients in the hot pancake with economical actions.

Churchill Centre is a very convenient place to have a meal with plenty of off-street free parking and varied cuisines. So far, we have had Malaysian street food at Ricky's Malaysian Kitchen, burgers at Burger Club and Australian Cuisine at Caffe Acqua. Fast food outlets McDonalds and KFC are located around the fringe of the carpark. The food court where Bing Boy is located had a spacious, airy ambience with plenty of seatings and a playground to keep the kids happy.
