The relatively new 'Bing Boy' franchise popping up in food courts throughout SA offer these Asian style 'bing' wraps. Touted as "urban asian street food", these wraps are light, flavourful and reasonably healthy (depending what ingredient combination you choose).

The whole thing is made, in full view, while you wait. It starts by spreading batter on a circular hot plate to make the perfectly round, thin wheat 'omelette', which then progresses down the line to have the pre-prepared ingredients piled up and wrapped tight. It takes about 5 minutes from woah to go (including placing the order).

I chose a Veg-ing Bing (mushroom, baby spinach, mix salad, sweet & sour carrot, avocado & wonton skin). The base of each 'bing' is made up of the omelette wrap plus egg, coriander, spring onion, and sesame seed. I forwent the egg and mayonnaise, and I've no doubt they'd be accommodating to customers adding and changing the existing menu choices to their own liking.

How did it taste: lovely. The wrap is packed full of Asian infused flavours, none of which are overpowering; and it's a light enough lunch that you don't feel heavy and sedated once you finish it, but satiated at the same time.

All they do is bing, and they do it well.
