A Mr Bing Restaurant in Hong Kong in 2013

Inspired by its 10-year history as a Beijing street food restaurant, Mr. Bing Chili Crisp is an intensely flavorful, crispy condiment. Made with four peppers of complimentary heat, smokiness, and fruitiness, umami-rich mushroom powder, and a crunchy punch of garlic and onion, it brings the flavor of Northern China home to elevate everyday meals with a burst of heat and just enough sweetness.

Mr. Bing Chili Crisp was developed in Hong Kong in 2013, as a signature ingredient in Mr. Bing’s cult-favorite jianbing, a delicious mung-bean batter crepe filled with fried dough, egg, scallions, and the spicy, garlicky umami kick of chili crisp.  In 2015, Mr. Bing started to feed hungry New Yorkers, and the Vendy Awards crowned Mr. Bing “Rookie of the Year” for Best New Street Food of NYC.

Mr Bing was founded by Brian and Ben, who met in Beijing in 1998 and spent 15 years growing businesses and raising families while living across China and Hong Kong. In 2019, when restaurant customers demanded to buy chili crisp by itself, the packed food business, Mr Bing Foods, was born. 

Although the restaurants closed during the 2020 pandemic, the Mr Bing story lives on in a jar. 

The company is a minority-owned business, who’s owners include Chinese and China diaspora investors from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, and the US. Mr Bing supports the cultures that inspired us by giving a portion of our revenues to charities that foster Chinese arts and community.

Mr. Bing Chili Crisp (Mild and Spicy) is also available on Amazon.com and at more than 2,000 retailers across the U.S. Mr. Bing is made in the USA, non-GMO project verified, contains no preservatives or MSG, is kosher, gluten-free, and low in sodium and saturated fats.

Mr. Bing Chili Crisp is spicing up everyday cooking with savory versatility - just stir it, scoop it, Bing it!
