Wikipedia: Jianbing
Jianbing (simplified Chinese: 煎饼; traditional Chinese: 煎餅; pinyin: jiānbǐng; literally: “fried pancake") is a traditional Chinese street food similar to crepes. It is a type of bing generally eaten for breakfast and hailed as “one of China’s most popular street breakfasts.” The main ingredients of jianbing are a batter of wheat and grain flour, eggs and sauces. It can be topped with different fillings and sauces such as baocui (薄脆, thin and crispy fried cracker), ham, chopped or diced mustard pickles, scallions and coriander, chili sauce or hoisin sauce depending on personal preference. It is often folded several times before serving.

Jianbing is now spreading to the West in cities such as New York City, Seattle, Chicago and San Francisco, sometimes with modifications for Western tastes.

Jianbing - How to Make Authentic, Street Food style Jianbing Guozi at Home (煎饼果子)
Chinese Cooking Demystified
Published on Oct 9, 2017
Jianbing Guozi, probably one of the top five most popular Chinese street foods.  We’ll need some equipment and adjustments to make this on a home stove, but the end result is that same real taste that you’d get from a street vendor.

Most Jianbing also have that crunchy guobie cracker in the middle, which we’ll also teach you how to cook.  The original Tianjin style is also very similar (but uses pure mungbeans), which we’ll talk about in the reddit post.  This style is the street foot style that you’d get in Beijing, Shanghai, or wherever.
