Is there anything more romantic than a hole in the wall? In food terms, that is. Jian bing, or Chinese crepes, is an excellent grab and go lunch option operating out of a hatch on Greek Street. These hefty crepes are filled with vegetables, chilli oil, a fried egg, crispy wonton, and a choice of pork, lamb or chicken - if you fancy it. It’s a big old kiss on the lips of a lunch, especially for six or seven quid, give or take.
