Kung Fu Bing Is a Little Bit Kung Fu Panda, a Little Bit KFC, a Little Bit Nuts

Kung Fu Bing has been open for a few weeks now, and yet somehow we missed its Ali G–yellow exterior and the giant panda statue that kids already love posing with. Probably because it’s hidden away on Division Street, in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge. This one’s a rare beast: an American-geared Chinese fast-food concept (note the use of KFC’s font and Subway’s color scheme, and the misleading “Store No. 10001” on the facade) and the first of what the owners are hoping are several locations (with the next one being in Brooklyn and another one being considered in Times Square). KFB traffics in “bing” (savory pancakes) that are stuffed with tomato, lettuce, and your choice of meat or eggs. To be sure, this is commodity meat we’re talking about, and Kraft singles. The scallion-and-lard crêpes, which are premade in Taiwan, end up being a bit greasy after they’re griddled, but that hasn’t stopped the place from getting its share of foot traffic — mostly teenagers who dig the shrink-wrapped bubble teas. Here’s the menu.
