Yesterday I mentioned the phrase “It’s like watching paint dry.” This video of a street vendor making jianbing (煎饼・Chinese breakfast crepes) is like watching socks go around in a clothes dryer.
Compare that method with this one:
I’m sure there are as many ways to make this as there are street vendors in Beijing.
A funny account of someone addicted to jianbing: “Let he who has turned down a delicious jianbing first call me fatty” (from Roads & Kingdoms).
Also: “Why Jianbing is China’s Most Popular Street Breakfast” (from Serious Eats)
And if you want to try making it yourself: a recipe (from Genius Kitchen).
Another recipe, with a slightly different take on it, called Jidan Bing (from The Woks of Life).
Or wait four years and make a plan to go to the next Winter Olympics in Beijing.
