T2014 Big Bing

One day when we were walking back to our budget inn, we saw this thick spring onion pancake being sold and since I like to eat doughy food, I bought one to take back to our room to snack on and to share with my friends.

This is called 蔥花千層大餅 (Cōnghuā qiān céng dà bǐng) which literally means Spring Onion Thousand Layers Big Biscuit. It is like a big and thick pancake. I bought just a section and they cut it up into smaller pieces for me. As can be seen from the photos, it has layers and layers of "flour" with spring onions in between the layers. It is doughy but not so oily although you can see the oil in the "bing" layers but because there are so many layers, I don't feel that it is oily when I ate it as there are more layers than the sping onion oil.

This is a common food item in Taiwan and there are many road side stalls selling this bing.

The bag says they make their bing with less oil, less salt, less sugar.
Outer layer crispy and inner layers soft, very tasty!

  3. I would like that too. I would love it like that. The thin ones here are sometimes so hard, no...not crispy, hard - not nice at all.

  4. The spring onion pancake looks good.. One thing about me, I like savoury crepes/pancake, like ham+cheese crepes.. I don't fancy the usual sweet ones.. So I think I will like this..

  7. Er... if is layered, then you won't feel much doughy about it, will you? It would be more flaky and crispy, no? I would like that...

    1. No. the inner layers are soft and doughy as can be seen in the photo above. Why do you think just because there are many layers, the layers would be flaky and crispy inside? This is not baked at super high heat and the layers are not super thin like puff pastry which is like what you described.

    1. Not that strong, just a bit of spring onion taste in mouth. Tasty enough without the chili dip.

    1. This one is more doughy than cekodok sayur. I have yet to try cekodok sayur but I assume cekodok sayur are deep fried. This is not deep fried.

  14. How interesting! I've never seen such a thick pancake before. I would never have imagined that's what it looks like inside the packet. The wrapper makes me think of a traditional biscuit, or bing.
