The Flushing Bing Lady comes to Manhattan!

Chelsea Pearl | Aug 2, 200608:46 PM     41

So I couldn't get a cab in the heat, and I'm walking along W. 3rd street, right by the basketball courts on 6th ave. A new place was opening up, so I stopped to check it out. It's the Flushing Bing Lady!

(For more info on her, see previous thread at http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...)

Oh. My. God. I got two - banana bing and red-bean bing, mostly because they were fun to say - and they were amazing. A round, stuffed bun that's been flattened out, it was mild, a little bit oily, coated in crunchy sesame seeds, and bursting with fresh mashed banana. I'm going to want this for breakfast every day for the foreseeable future. (Less than $4 for both, too.) Kinda similar to the green buns from under the bridge, only thinner and grilled, and they'll offer a mustard green bing as well.

Right now the menu is very limited, but Mrs. Ting (who was present and glowingly happy) said that they'll have the full menu starting on Monday. I can't wait.
