My friend Snowing recorded the quick and easy creation of our morning meal, the savory street snack known as dan bing here in Shanghai, or more commonly called jianbing guozi. It’s basically a crepe filled with egg, scallions, sauce, chili and crispy wonton skins. The ingredients vary based on where you are in China and/or what your vendor is known for.
Today for breakfast I was introduced to another common Chinese street food, nian-gao tuan, which is a sticky rice cake, much like mochi, stuffed with sweet or savory fillings. Mine was filled with fried dough, pork floss and pickled greens. Flavorful and filling!!
