  behind the pancakes is the oven

It's a classic case of simple food, great taste.

The pancake costs RMB0.50 each. It is made of wheat flour, shaped like a soft-angled rectangular pillow, with a very tiny sugar filling inside. (there is also a savoury choice, but I prefer the sweet one)

The whole thing is then slapped onto the wall of an oven, much like the Indian naan I think, for a few minutes, and viola !

Eat it when it is still hot, you can also add some honey to it to make it sweeter. It goes very well with a cup of hot yunnan coffee, which unfortunately is not this owner's core business. So take away to French cafe, and order a cup of Yunnan coffee. You won't regret it.

Favorite Dish: sweet wheat flour pancake, what else ?
