Bing Boy is so named because they serve jian bing, a Chinese crepe that can contain anything from pork floss to stir-fried beef. I first came across these little wonders in Box Hill, after seeing a long line of people who looked like they knew what they were doing and joining it. I was poor enough at the time to have to buy the most basic jian bing on offer, and was rewarded with the pork-flossed wanton-skinned concoction that is now my favourite.
Side note: If you have to ask what pork floss is, you haven't lived. Well, you haven't lived sufficiently near a Chinatown. Think pork jerky meets fairy floss, but enjoyable. Just go with it.)
The food outlet's basic bing – called 'Hey Bing Boy' – is a wheat crepe with a slightly scrambled egg fried over it as it cooks. Some spring onion is sprinkled on, then a mound of fried wanton skin with a sprinkling of pork floss and some pickled vegetables. The filling is drizzled with hoisin and chili sauces, then wrapped up in a neat little package.
For the slightly less adventurous, other bings on offer include the Ching Ching, filled with salad, chicken and avocado, the Mad Ming, which is a beef and mushroom concoction. There's also a salady vegetarian option.
With bings ranging from $5.65 to $9, Bing Boy offers a cheap alternative to the other lunches you can get at the QV food court. It may not be the healthiest option, but it's certainly up there with the tastiest.
