Bing Bing Dim Sum Restaurant Review

: The second outing from Cheu Noodle Bar’s Ben Puchowitz and Shawn Darragh, Bing Bing takes their fondness for remixing Asian flavors to the next logical conclusion: a restaubar serving dim sum. The graffiti-esque murals and red framed banquettes lend the proceedings an urban, hipster feel befitting its Passyunk Avenue locale. Look for delicate dumplings filled with shrimp and watercress, or pork and miso “ramen” flavored soup. Roast pork bao pay homage to South Philly with provolone and long hots tucked inside. Naturally, noodles are an important asset, as in the Taiwanese beef soup with brisket and fresh herbs, but there’s also a crab and kimchi fried rice. Helpfully marked vegan and gluten-free items ensure all diners have options. Desserts are minimal, and usually include a daily changing flavor of soft serve (think lapsang banana or cherry-Aperol) and a waffle or sweet bao. Cocktails keep within the fun and funky parameters, with a hibiscus and jalapeño spiked margarita and pitchers of the vodka-soju concoction known as “Blue Drank” rounding out a small beer and wine list.
