Scallion pancake @ Yong Kang Street, Taipei

Yong Kang Street is a popular destination for foodies who come to Taipei. It is similar to the night markets, but Yong Kang Street offers a higher quality of goods along posher store fronts. While I was walking on Yong Kang street, one stall selling pancake caught my attention. The queue is long and I can see that the pancake maker are very skilful. The scallion pancake is a very simple dish. It is a savoury flat bread folded with oil and minced scallions. It is made from pre prepared dough instead of batter. This is just like roti canai back in Malaysia.

During the cooking proccess, the cook keeps fluffing the dough up. The end product is an incredibly soft piece of warm savoury pancake. You have the option to include eggs, ham, cheese and basil.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. Great and tasty pancake. Crispy outside and soft at centre. Amazingly, its not oily).
Price:8/10(Cheap. TWD25 ~ MYR2.70 ~ USD0.88 for scallion pancake without any additional item).

Their packaging.

Simple but delicious.

This is the stall. The queue is usually long and you have to wait.
