Urban Asian food chain, bing boy, is excited to add gluten free options to their already popular menu.
Renowned for their infamous Chinese-style wraps, known as ‘bings,’ the gluten free alternative aims to
accommodate for the increasing number of people opting for gluten free options due to lifestyle choices
Bings are traditionally made with flour and water to create a thin wheat wrap, whereas the gluten free
wrap is made from buckwheat flour, free-range eggs and almond milk. The bing is then topped with
spring onions, coriander, sesame seeds and crispy wontons, with a free-range egg served on top, served
fresh off the hotplate.
Founder and Managing Director of bing boy, Ming Liang Ma, says, “bing boy is one of the first major
food retailers in Australia to incorporate gluten free options on the menu.
“Those with intolerances now have the opportunity to enjoy the delicious flavours of our crowd-favourite
bings, such as the ‘Ching Ching’ with marinated chicken, avocado, salad, snow-pea sprouts and sweet
soy sauce, with a gluten free wrap of course,” says Ming Liang Ma.
Ming Liang Ma has worked closely with experienced Menu Consultant, Bill Petropoulos, to create the
new gluten free menu offerings.
Bill Petropoulos says, “The gluten free bing is ideal for the health conscious as it’s highly nutritious,
flavorsome, and equally as satisfying as the original bing – you wouldn’t even know it’s gluten free, it
tastes that good!
“The fillings in the gluten free bings will remain the same as the existing menu, although the cooking
process has changed to ensure the bings are truly gluten free…
“Bing boy’s trained staff understand the importance of ensuring there is no cross contamination by
always using separate equipment and utensils,” says Bill Petropoulos.
Since opening their doors in 2011, bing boy has expanded across Australia having a total of twenty-nine
stores nationwide, all of which now offering gluten free bings.
