This streetside food stand serves a variety of street foods out of a storefront. In addition to juanbing, it also serves roujiamou. The filling of the juanbing can be anything from peking duck, fried chicken, charsiew, fried egg, or braised pork. A pancake is dipped in oil the be flash-fried, smeared with hoisin and chili sauce, garnished with lettuce, cucumber, and scallion, then filled with whatever protein you please.

I have frequented this place twice, both times of which I have decided to not return because the juan bing is too greasy for my liking. The flavors are well balanced from the fresh garnishes and sweet and spicy sauces, however the oil easily coats everything with a greasy flavor that tends to mask the other flavors.
