    China Islamic has awesome scallion pancakes. They are very flavorful and not too greasy. They also have wonderful sesame flat bread, with a crisp top and soft, warm, scallion laden center. I love it with a nice house special hot pot! Since its a muslim restaurant, no pork on the menu.

      The ones from the refrigerated section at 99 Ranch are pretty good too. Shun Fat has more of a selection with paratha and such available.

            I haven't tried too many of these but I agree with you, they make a very good one. Tasty and not greasy.

          Dunno about the best, but I like the scallion pancakes at J&J and SinBaLa.

          Both are nice and crisp, without being oily. J&J's are a bit meatier, SinBaLa's a bit more dainty, or "fluffy" if you will.

            I'll second the scallion pancake at J&J. Had it as a side dish for a texture contrast to my excellent XLB.
