World Jianbing Day


What is World Jianbing Day?

World Jianbing Day, which falls every year on April 30, has a goal to spread the love of jianbing around the world and celebrate its many forms. From the original found streetside to the modern and fusion jianbings you can now find in many countries, we love them all!
Jianbing is a savory traditional Chinese 'crepe' with a fried egg and other fillings that is traditionally found streetside. It's origins can be traced to Tianjin and Shandong province, but it is loved around China and now, more than ever, around the world.

2020 Theme: QuaranBing

Jianbing Facts

What Exactly is Jianbing?

 Beijingers are known for their love of the jianbing, featuring a more substantial base and savory sauces, but Shanghai also serves up a delicious, albeit slightly crispier and sweeter version. With street food disappearing across China’s major cities, vendors are increasingly hard to find but always worth the effort to seek out! The perfect on-the-go meal, these thin crepes are fried on flat griddles with an egg, and then flecked with cilantro, green onions and pickled mustard tubers. Savory bean paste and fiery chili paste are slathered on to add depth and flavor, while a deep- fried wonton skin adds crunch (or substitute a youtiao 油条 – Chinese crueler for a bread-ier filling. There are also plenty of other regional variations and toppings available based on your preference and location. If you prefer your treats non-spicy, just ask for it “búlà (不辣)” and the vendor will forgo the chili.
