Looking for Chinese scallion cake in Baltimore County

Hi. I've been looking for awhile for a Chinese restaurant that serves good scallion cakes. I don't mean the kind used for mooshoo, but the kind that are a little thicker and come prepared so all you have to do is cut and eat them. They resemble flatbread. Thanks.

  1. You can buy the mix at almost any Korean market. Just add water and scallions and fry.

    1. A&J has something similar, without scallion. If Rockville is too far, we get frozen ones (one of the Taiwanese brands) heat in the pan and serve. I would add a scrambled egg on one side and make it "egg pancake." Sorry it's so good it ran out so fast, don't have the package to tell you the brand. Good luck.

      1. Szechuan House at York and Seminary has that

        1. Jumbo Seafood in Pikesville has them. They come with string beans + chicken or beef and what I believe is some sort of plum sauce on the side (you can probably get them with just vegetables too). I don't know what is considered a good scallion cake or not as this is the only place I have had them, but they taste great to me.

          1. Umi Sake on York Road has scallion pancakes with string beans as an appetizer. I thought they were rather substantial, so it could make for a light dinner (or order 2!).

                See my Umi Sake review at . I wouldn't drive in very far for it, but given the alternatives in the Cockeysville area, it's a good option.

                  Agreed. We had a good dinner and wouldn't hesitate to return if we were in the area. It seemed like there were a lot of regulars there, too.
