Best Scallion pancake - HKG

Hi all

Have a massive craving for scallion (or shallot or spring onion) pancake - where is the best in Hong Kong?

  1. I don't know where the best ones are. I've had them at Ye Shanghai and at Crystal Jade XLB. I seem to recall that the one at Ye Shanghai was not pancake-thin, but it's the type that's kind of like donut-shaped and flaky on the outside with scallion fillings. The one at Crystal Jade is a bunch of thin flakey pieces of pancake that come in a basket. Actually don't recall if these had any scallions in them, but it's more along the lines of scallion pancakes that you may be thinking of. Although I don't go around seeking scallion pancakes, I do enjoy these at Crystal Jade. The one at Ye Shanghai is a little too hefty for me, personally.
