What’s better than a juicy, crispy, golden slab of schnitzel? Free schnitty, duh.
Making your crumbed chicken dreams come true this Friday is Bings—Barangaroo’s beloved beer and bao bar. This pint-sized hotspot has been closed since lockdown kicked off in March 2020, but they’re back in a big way with a fresh new menu and a little reopening celebration to boot.
Bings is a part of the legendary Lotus Group, the crew that oversees some of Sydney’s greatest dumplings via their five Lotus outposts, Madame Shanghai, and Chi by Lotus. Basically, Lotus group head chef Steve Wu used the lockdown to revamp the Bings menu, moving on from Buddha and poke bowls.
Now, as well as its super popular bao, Bings is dishing out pan-fried buns, salads, sides, and a bold new range of Taiwanese-inspired chicken schnitzel.
The new “Schnitz” menu heroes three oversized chicken schnitzels in takeaway format: an “OG”, a “Seoul Flavour” with gochujang and kimchi, and the "Keen as Mustard" served with honey mustard mayo, bonito, and seaweed. Keen to mix your love of bao and schnitzel? Try the fried chicken bao, with Asian slaw, tangy gochujang, and pickled radish.
“We’re excited to be re-opening the doors of Bings and have had a lot of fun updating the menu,” says Wu. “We wanted to focus on combining the classic and most popular parts of our old menu like the signature bao with a heap of new and exciting dishes like our Asian schnitz and pan-fried buns. I think it’s exactly what the lunchtime crowd at Barangaroo needs!”
Keen to give it a whirl? Head down this Friday 16 April between 11am and 2.30pm (or until sold out) to cop a free schnitty. Pair it with $5 tinnies, $5 snacks, and live tunes.
