The name of the store is Crispy Scallion Cake (北平李老爹脆皮蔥油餅), it is located in Wuying Road, Fengshan District, Kaohsiung City that has been in business for many years and is branches scattered around Taiwan.

Just look for its signboard, though this store in Kaohsiung is the founding store (their flagship store). Its crust is a crispy skin taste, a bit similar to a deep fried egg, the cake skin is fermented in advance and then topped with white sesame seeds.

It is fried in two different pots, first set the shape with a lower temperature and finally with high temperature to make it crispy. The white sesame seeds brings a good aroma to the fried cake. Best to have oyster sauce mixed in it.

The cook cuts on the crust and the crisp sound was so sweet.  Half size costs NT$35 yuan and one whole costs NT$65 yuan, it is a bang for the buck food. The scallion cake has a good peppery taste that makes it delicious.

The store is open from 14:00 until 19:00 which good for a afternoon snack. Just find the store sign 北平李老爹脆皮蔥油餅 at No. 301, Wuying Road, Fengshan District, Kaohsiung City (Chinese address: 高雄市鳳山區武營路301號) (Photos from Kaohsiung Food Association)
