Meigancai bing, chinese bread

What is it?

These delicious treats are made piping hot in front of you, usually streetside or prominently displayed as a pop-up in the front of a larger restaurant. Look for a wooden naan oven that is usually in the shape of a wooden wine-style barrel. There are usually a few options, perhaps different types of meat or spiciness level – a trick for Chinese menus that you can’t read is to always just go for the most top-left dish on the menu. A good percentage of the time this is their standard or most famous dish. These will usually set you back just 5-8rmb.
