The Menu: Crispy, savory Korean pancakes simply made by pan-frying a mixture of veggies including chopped onion, carrot, cabbage, and garlic with flour and water in canola oil. Elizabeth covered our Korean flapjacks with sesame seeds and a slew of saucy toppings including We Can't Say It's Sour Cream by Wayfare Foods, vegetarian hoisin sauce, and red pepper paste. A lovely side salad of romaine lettuce, cabbage, onion, and mushrooms rounded out our terrific meal.
