Bing (Chinese flatbread)

Bing is a term used to describe dough-based flatbreads, pancakes, unleavened dough foods, or indeed any food item with a flat disk-like shape. Many of them are similar to the Indian roti, French crepes, or Mexican tortilla, while others are more similar to Western cakes and cookies.


Some common types include:
*''Fa mian bing''
*''Qian ceng bing''
*''Jian bing'' .
*''Báo bǐng'' , or ''mù xū bǐng''
''Bing''s are a casual food, generally eaten for lunch. A famous meal involving ''bing'' is Peking duck and moo shu pork, both of which are rolled up in thin wheat flour ''bao bing'' called with scallions and sweet noodle sauce or hoisin sauce. ''Bing''s are cooked on a skillet or griddle.

Some cakes and patties are also referred to as ''bing'', such as ''yuèbǐng'' , and ''luo buo si bing'' .

''Bing''s are also eaten in Korean culture, the most common being ''jian bing'', which are consumed together with seafood.
