    Default Simple recipe for another Taiwanese street food - Egg Pancake (Dan Bing)

    Now that I started the topic of Taiwanese street food, can't help to have to introduce another wildly loved breakfast food - Egg Pancake or Dan Bing in Mandarin. Dan Bing used to be sold in street breakfast eateries in the old days in Taiwan. Now they have been upgraded to breakfast restaurants, although I still miss the taste of the Dan Bing served in an outdoor eatery along with other breakfast items like soy milk, sticky rice balls and fried bread stick.

    The egg pancakes made in most random breakfast places in Taipei have the biggest flaw of pancake made from dough not sitting long enough to acquire the chewy texture when cooked. The following recipe uses the uncooked flour tortilla which makes up this flaw and makes perfect egg pancakes to a picky Taiwanese's standard.

    Please try and enjoy the beloved Dan Bing!

    I was looking for recipes for jian bing several years ago, with no
    luck. This does not strike me as being the same. I don't recall
    that what I was looking for contained sugar or chicken bouillon
    powder (or anything related to the latter). The good news is that
    I am now reminded of my quest and see there are now quite a few
    hits. Also, your use of a flour tortilla as a base indicates that
    one could make a low-carb version starting with an LC tortilla.

    I am not sure if Jian Bing is the same as the Bing in Dan Bing or Egg Pancake, but my guess is that it is the same family of the Chinese flour pancakes ranging from the very thin kind for making breakfast like Dan Bing or Jian Bing Guo Zi (another breakfast pancake variety from northern China) to the thicker kind called Cong Yiu Bing (oil scallion pancake). In this recipe,the Bing part is just using the uncooked tortilla, so most likely this is not the recipe you were looking for.

    If you like Jian Bing, then you probably will like the egg pancake. The uncooked tortilla really could pass as one of the best made thin Bing without the scallion. The sugar and chicken bouillon is used for seasoning the beaten eggs because the flavor of the egg pancake mainly comes from eggs. I like your idea of using a LC tortilla, but it has to be uncooked. Sometimes I use the uncooked whole wheat roti-chapati, also from Costco, as the Bing part which worked out great as well though it's a little smaller and slightlythicker.

    Thanks! I had forgotten all about this Bing family until you
    brought it up. I look forward to doing some experimentation.

    And imagine the subtropical sun warming up the early morning street in a market place in Taiwan, gentle warm breeze blowing your face, while you enjoy your first Taiwanese Egg Pancake...
