Fortune Dumpling pancakes are AMAZING!

My cheeks are burning from cold cause I couldn't wait till I was home to eat it, my stomach is sore from eating too quickly and my feet are sore from waiting for it, but wow are crunchy Chinese pancakes ever AMAZING!!! http://www.yellowpages.ca/bus/Quebec/... People if you're in the area get them! It's the item at the topmost left on the menu, something starts with a J. $5.49 tx.incl.

I can't fault the amount of time I waited (20 minutes I think?) cause it seemed to be the opening night of the restaurant and it was packed and hectic. But SO worth it. If you like a combination of soft thin eggy pancake with fresh coriander painted with three kinds of umami-packed sauce and then wrapped around a shatteringly crisp piece of wafer-thin fried dough then this is for you.

You can see them make them in the window too, that's what drew me in, I had walked past a time or two in the past few days and seen it before it opened, and then when I saw it was open and packed with people I glanced in, and saw the guy painting some sort of sauce on a pancake and then wrapping it around something crispy I knew I had to try it. Just one of those things that you KNOW will be good when you see it.

I had heard of soft pancakes wrapped around crispy fried dough served as street food in China and always wanted to try it and finally got to for the first time :D

I'm gonna bring everyone I can there this weekend to try the rest of the stuff on the menu. Another reason why I LOVE living in this neighborhood!

Unfortunately I don't have a photo cause my camera battery was dead but I'll take some when I go this weekend.
