Request: Looking for Mock Duck and Scallion Pancake

lkscheng | Apr 11, 201909:32 AM     12

I am looking for Mock Duck and Scallion Pancake in the NYC area.
Specifics:
For Mock Duck, the closest one that i found and like is at Vegetarian Dim Sum House (24 Pell St).
I am looking for another place that is similar in taste and texture.
The employee would not give me extra sauce, even though i bought all that was left.
And the flavor of the dish is inconsistent.
I've tried the one at Bodhi Kosher Vegetarian Restaurant (77 Mulberry St), but the outside layer was dry/crispy, and flavor was too sweet for me.
Similar to most Shanghai restaurants, the mock duck there are too sweet, and/or contains mushrooms.
I like my mock duck with many layers, tender, and salty.

For Scallion Pancake.
I have not found one to my specifics.
I want as many layers as possible, crispy on the outside and chewy/soft inside.
I want it to be stringy, spiral shaped if possible.
I don't want it thin and greasy, not just a piece of fried dough.

If you know of any place in the NYC area, please advise.
Thank you for your time and assistance.

eat on!
