One of the newest vendors at The Market Line, Dragon Bing serves the Chinese bread stuffed with things like barbecued pork, garlic shrimp, or even just plain with a side of curry sauce. Every single option is under $10, and each of them make for a really hearty lunch (especially when combined with a brown sugar boba tea). The barbecued pork option is a standout that benefits from being served spicy (which is an option for every one of their bings) - the flaky bread does a great job soaking up all the flavors while not getting too soggy, and the sweet slices of pork that taste even better when tossed with a combo of spicy onions and peppers.
