Bing Mi! Food Cart – A Portland Food Cart Review!

The Bing Mi! Food Cart moved to 9th and Alder on Thursday Jan 15th, 2015. They moved from their previous home on 3rd and Ash. They first opened up November  1st, 2014.

The Bing Mi! Food Cart is the brain child of Alisa Grandy. Here is her Food Cart story!

What is a Bing and How Did it Get To Portland?

Jian Bing is classic Beijing Street Food. Alisa Grandy had spent a delightful few weeks in Thailand in April of 2014 and while flying home to Portland she had a layover in Beijing. Alisa had a her first Jian Bing that fateful day  and she loved it!!!

One thing let to another, and Alisa made her mind up to open a Food Cart that featured the Chinese dish that she had fallen in love with on the streets of Beijing, China.

Within 7 months of having enjoyed a Bing in Beijing, Alisa was selling them on the streets of Portland.

Trust Me – You Want a Bing!

I had a Bing on Thursday and I loved it! It has great flavors and the wonton cracker that is inside of it, provides a delightful texture. Make sure to say “yes'” to plum sauce when they ask.

When you order, you are asked about how spicy you want your Bing to be – Light, Medium, or Very! I choose the medium and I had plenty of spice. I am sure that my friend Aaron Wakamatsu would love the “Very Spicy” Bing!

Options!

This time I got a basic Bing, next time I go, I will be ordering a Bing with sausage and an extra egg – just too see what it is like.

At Bing Mi!, they offer three fun speciality drinks,  I order a Soursop drink and it was exquisite! I really, really, liked it!
