It’s called “Jian Bing Guo Zi”, not just “Jian Bing”. “Jian Bing” is more like a general term for fried pancake (not sweet) and has a lot of variations. For example, Shan Dong Jian Bing is ultra thin pancake. “Guo Zi” is the crispy part of “Jian Bing Guo Zi” . It’s a type of street food originated in Tianjin, China.
