To all the lovers of Jianbing out there, you’re in luck. The Bing Kitchen plans on opening its flagship Chinese snack shop at 71 Orchard Street Next Tuesday.

Store build-out has been ongoing since mid-April. Here’s a quick look around the premises.

Jianbing is Chinese street fare that sorta resembles crepes. Apparently, such stands are “the ephemeral breakfast architecture of every Chinese city.”

Bing Kitchen is the brainchild of Aaron Gallentine and chef-artist Clio Goodman, whose popular Puddin’ NYC shop on St. Mark’s Place closed last year.

You’ll recall that 71 Orchard Street was previously home to The Cast. The leather boutique was booted in June 2015 after spending five years in the shoebox commercial unit. Malachite Group purchased the block-long property for $25.6 million just a few months earlier, and that was the end of that. However, owner Chuck Guarino was able to relocate in a synergistic play with the Great Frog hardcore jewelry shop across the way.

Below is the menu lifted from its website:
