What am I eating? A Korea Town Mystery...

Creamfinger | Apr 15, 2004 02:28 AM

On a recent visit to Korea Town for some groceries I was tempted by a food vendor parked outside of the entrance to the market where I was shopping. The only item sold was a type of hot pancake made from glutinous rice. The person making these pancakes started by taking a small ball of raw glutinous rice dough and pressing a large lump of raw brown sugar into the center and then pulling the dough around it. It was then flattened on a griddle into a pancake. As the pancake browned the sugar on the inside melted. It took about 15 minutes before the molten sugar cooled enough to eat, but WOW was that first bite worth the wait. I can't wait to head back for another. Each pancake was $1.00

Does anybody know what the correct name is for what I was eating?

The vendor was parked outside of a Korean supermarket on Western. I can't remember the name.
