Shepherd's Purse Pancakes At Oriental Cuisine in San Jose

Chandavkl | Jun 13, 2009 09:24 PM

Something I haven't seen before is the Pork Shepherd's Purse Pancakes at Oriental Cuisine in San Jose. (Oriental Cuisine is the name on the business card-its true name might be Oriental Gourmet Chinese Restaurant.) Address is 1646 S. DeAnza Bl., next to (not inside) the food court. They have Shepherd's Purse dumplings and wonton, but the pancake was particularly interesting. Basically it was a pocket shaped exactly like a letter sized envelope, complete with backside envelope folds, deep fried until crispy. (You can see from the poor resolution picture how the "flap" doesn't show any Shepherd's Purse filling.) Curious if something like this is available anywhere else.
