Hi All! I have been reading a book set in China, which includes descriptions of the street food jian bing. Of course, now I really want to find this treat. Has anyone encountered this in the Boston area?

Brief description (I'm just trying to give you a very basic idea): a large, thin crepe that is spread with raw egg, dotted with scallions and coriander, flipped, slathered with sauce(s), topped with a deep-fried "bread" square, folded, and presented to the lucky eater.

Utterly intriguing!
