From the creative minds of chef Ben Puchowitz and Shawn Darragh is Bing Bing Dim Sum is an Asian Jewish fusion restaurant located at 1648 East Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia. CHeU Noodle Bar in Washington Square West and CHeU Fishtown and nunu bar in Fishtown are their sister restaurants. They all have traditional Asian cuisine with a Jewish twist. Some of their popular dishes include the Caterpillar Bread at Bing Bing Dim Sum and the Pastrami Bao at CHeU Fishtown. Their soup dumplings are to die for as well.
The Cheesesteak Bao at Bing Bing Dim Sum is an Asian twist on the famed Philadelphia Cheesesteak. It’s filled with Cooper Sharp American cheese, long hots, and “wit” onions. The long hots aren’t overbearing. In fact, they don’t carry any heat at all. Of all the cheesesteaks I’ve had in Philadelphia, including major tourist destinations such as Geno’s and Jim’s, and under the radar sandwich shops like Woodrow’s on South Street, the Cheesesteak Bao at Bing Bing Dim Sum is one of the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia. The Cheesesteak Bao is only $3.50 during happy hour (Mon-Fri 5-7, Sat-Sun 3-5).
