Best Scallion/Onion/Green Onion Pancakes in the Bay Area?

willbpayne | Apr 8, 2011 11:28 AM

Growing up on the East Coast, all of my favorite cheap American Chinese restaurants had scallion pancakes (sometimes called green onion or just onion pancakes) on their menu; crisp and oily, great for dipping in soy sauce.

I've seen them on a few menus here in the Bay, but typically they are much doughier and not nearly that crackling delight I remember.

Does anyone know where to get something that better approximates what I remember? Or why the examples I've found here are so doughy?

Is it related to San Francisco's overly doughy take on the New York pizza slice? Discuss. ;-)
