Breakfast, lunch or dinner, main meal or unforgettable side dish, the Korean pancake is always there for us. We've been tucking into these fried up wonders for centuries, and it's safe to say they've stood the test of time and emerged victorious. You'll find loads of different takes nowadays, from the traditional to the inventive, so we've rounded up a few of our favourites for you to get to know.
If you're a fish lover, you'll love the pancakes they whip up over at MiMi2Go – perfectly packaged for those in a hurry, their Haemul Pajeon is bursting with soft squid and seasoned with the fragrant flavours of spring onion and chive. We recommend adding a little something extra though and having it as a side dish, so why not try their Korean-style Chilli Fried Chicken to break up the sweetness?
Where: MiMi2Go, Central
2. Janggun Sioyakki
Korean pancakes top off the Special Menu at Janggun Sioyakki, so you know they're going to be good. Alongside a seafood packed version, it's their kimchi take for us. And the good news doesn't stop there, this one's vegetarian-friendly. We'd recommend subbing on some traditional Korean-style kimbap with dipping sauce on the side for a real feast.
Where: Janggun Sioyakki, Causeway Bay
3. Mr. Korea BBQ
You'll most likely find your pancakes as a side dish here at Mr. Korea BBQ. And given that they have so much on offer here, you're sure to find the perfect companion for your pancake.
