Green Onion Cakes in Calgary?
My sister has called to let me know she is heading down to Taste of Edmonton for green onion cakes. Does anyone know if Chinese restos in Calgary are able to replicate the amazing ones found seemingly everywhere in Edmonton? Thanks in advance.
Many Chinese restaurants that offer dim sum will have green onion cakes on their dim sum menus, e.g. Regency Palace, U&Me, etc. Similarly, the little hole-in-the-wall noodle places that sell dumplings and spareribs to go will also have green onion cakes to go (frozen or refrigerated; pan fry them to heat them up), e.g. Fortune Food on Centre St N.
I believe many Hong Kong-style cafés have green onion cakes on their menus under "Snacks." At the moment, though, I couldn't tell you which ones. Look for them at Happy Valley, Pebble Street, Calgary Court, and MBA.
I guess that doesn't tell you whether the onion cakes are like the ones in Edmonton, but in my experience, green onion cakes are almost always greasy, crispy, flavourful, and delicious!
