Monkey King Jianbing

Chinese in Chicago

    Perfect for
  • Lunch
  • Serious Take-Out Operation

This carryout spot is hidden on the second floor of an office building in Chinatown, and specializes in jiangbing that they make in their windowless suite. Our go-to order is the minced pork version, a thin pancake wrapped around minced pork, a beef hot dog, pork floss, pickles, and crunchy wonton strips. It fills a meaty crepe-sized hole in our heart that we didn’t know needed filling. Plus, it comes with plastic gloves that are handy if you’re eating this messy masterpiece in your car.
