Laobing is a type of unleavened flatbread sold in parts of northern China and used in Beijing cuisine. It is sometimes referred to as a Chinese pancake.
Laobing can be the size of a large pizza, about one centimeter thick, and is doughy and chewy in texture. Most laobing are plain, although some have scallions inside the pastry. Laobing is usually cut into slices and served as a staple food, or can be stir-fried with meat and vegetables to make chaobing .
