Had some delicious scallion pancakes at a couple of Chinese Restaurants in New York. Where in L.A. (preferably the San Fernando Valley) can I find some? Any suggestions?

  1. Is this the same as the "staple" in Osaka?

    1. In L.A. you can get them at Korean restaurants more readily than Chinese -- Green Oaks (Duk Su Jang) on Sherman Way and Van Nuys Blvd. definitely has them.

      They're called p'ajeon (pah-jawn) in Korean. You can get them with seafood, too, in which case they're haemul (hay-mool) p'ajeon.

      1. Mandarin Deli in Northridge (Reseda & Prarie).

              We used to get them at the Mandarin Deli in Little Tokyo:

              Mandarin Deli
              (213) 617-0231
              356 E 2nd St
              Los Angeles, CA 90012

              Great Shanghai-style noodle soups, too.

                The Mandarin Deli in Little Tokyo has been closed for several years now. The branch in Chinatown also closed recently.

                  Thanks, that's too bad. We really loved that place back when my wife worked at MOCA...

          2. The ones at Earthen Restaurant in Hacienda Heights are outstanding.
