Roast Beef “Bing” Sandwiches and Dumplings from Yang Yang Express

I am officially obsessed with the Upper Darby Terminal Square area. It is such an unexpectedly diverse block. The pupusas from El Sabroso rocked my world last week. Next, I had to try the dumplings that were named Best of Philly 2012 by Philly Mag at Yang Yang Express next door to El Sabroso.

Yang Yang offers soup dumplings, 8 for $6. The meat filling was nice, but there was not nearly enough broth inside.

The dumplings here are all hand made so you will have to wait a bit, but its worth it. The award winning dumplings did not disappoint; the crispy pan fry job was particularly impressive.

Listed as the Roast Beef sandwich on the menu, this is the dish right here; even more memorable than the dumplings. It came highly recommended by Philadining and he was right. Thin slices of beef and strips of scallions are sandwiched in between two crispy, bing (Chinese flatbread) and coated with a bit of hoisin. These were the most satisfying and least greasy bing I have ever had.

I wouldn’t say heading all the way to Yang Yang for the dumplings is a must, we can get great dumplings right in Center City. But, you might want to head over for this more unique  pancake and meat combo. Get this perfect Chinese sandwich for only $3.25. There is so much more of the menu here that I need to explore, but the roast beef sandwich will be on my table again next time.
