Kung Fu Bing Closed for Restructuring

Posted on: October 12th, 2010 at 6:34 am by

Just shy of a few months at 189 East Houston, Kung Fu Bing is now closed for renovations.  According to a pair of signs in the glass doors, the closure is only temporary for some necessary “restructuring.”

In this business, such abrupt closures oftentimes signal the beginning of the end for restaurants.  Only time will tell, though.  In the meantime, it appears Kung Fu Bing has failed to capture the minds and appetites of locals.  Yelpers haven’t been too kind to the establishment, which moved from the corner of Eldridge and Division last spring. One reviewer wrote:

Even in my drunk-hungry state, where I have been known to enjoy pretty crappy food, I found myself unable to eat more than two bites of this “Bing”

I threw the rest off my balcony. It landed on the edge of a lower rooftop, where it rests to this day. Even the pigeons seem to be above eating my leftover Bing.

We’ll keep you posted.
