      I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing, but there is a guy on Grand and Bowery who pours batter into a hexagonal mold, heats it over a flame, and pops out a little over twenty oval, fluffy mini cakes. They're definitely egg-based, which is what made think that this might be what you're talking about. You get 20 for $1. There's also another vendor on Doyers and Bowery, but I don't know if that vendor is there as regularly as the guy on Grand.

          Not for the past 5+ years. She did manage to send her daughter to college though with the earnings from her business.

            I miss Mrs. Han. I've often wondered whether she is in happy retirement. I hope so. She made so many people happy. :-)
