OMG I loved it
Clean, modern dining area if you wish to eat in
We have walked past this new eatery a number of times and noticed the long queues. We have stood at the glass counter and admired the skills of the staff. They have an efficient system where the fresh ingredients are collected by one staff member and put in a queue next to the omelette maker, who manages to cook more than one at a time. Today we decided we must try a Bing Boy omelette.
Long queues but we were served fast
The sign on the wall explains the name of this franchise. Bing is the Chinese term used to describe a traditional thin wheat omelette wrap with various fillings. It is commonly sold at street stalls. Boy is a western term used to express strong feelings of excitement - oh boy! Now the name Bing Boy makes a lot of sense.
It's fun to watch the multi skilled omlette makers
There are lots of suggested food combinations on the menu with fresh ingredients such as chicken, prawns, salmon and many varieties of salads. We chose Ching Ching, which was an absolutely delicious combination of chicken, avocado, coriander and packed full of fresh salads.
When trying to compare this to other foods I described the crepe/omlette as having a texture like the outside of a steamed dim sim with a subtle taste of egg. I shared mine with my daughter, but I could have eaten a whole one and she said she could have to. Mind you, we were full with half. It was so delicious and nice to have a really hot lunch straight off the grill.
The menu starts from only $5.90, which is very competitive with many takeaway spots. They also have a dining area where we overheard many other favourite comments about the food.
How delicious do they look?
This really is a café for all ages. I heard a little girl say to her mum 'This is delicious'. I asked another elderly lady what she thought. It was her first try of Bing Boy and she commented on how tasty the food was …'because it's just been made, it's hot, crunchy and veggies (which are) very fresh.' I even heard a customer thank the staff as she left. You don't hear that very often!
When I said "Oh my god, I loved it' my daughter said 'You have said that about a million times.' Talk about a drama queen, I swear, I wouldn't have said it more than 900,00 times!
This quick, healthy and popular food has been made in the streets of China for centuries. I can see why. Oh boy, this is now my favourite takeaway.
