Jing Jiang Rou Si is a Chinese dish.  Strips of pork (rou si), stir-fried in black bean sauce (jian jiang), topped with shredded scallions and other aromatics, typically served as wraps with dried tofu sheets (doupi) or flour pancakes (bing).

The doupi (geon dubu) costs an additional 2,000 won – free for me, because I’m already considered a regular.

Jin Jiang Rou Si was quite good.  The meat was tender, very nicely seasoned.  The toppings, including onions + scallions + cilantro + carrots, were a bit much – just the scallions and/or cilantro would’ve been fine.  The doupi made the dish feel lighter than when served with bing (see for example 9.303 Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao).  A welcome departure from the typical Korean-Chinese crap at other mainstream Korean-Chinese restaurants.  And very reasonably priced at just 18,000 won.
