Famous Food in Luo Dong Night Market, Yilan, Taiwan

My trip to Taiwan last month was a great one! We fly to Taipei with Air Asia and landed at Taoyuan Airport. It was on early Dec, therefore the weather is cooling (minimum temperature during our trip was 12 Deg C).

One of the food that make my family members screamed for is Yilan Spring Onion Pancake (Cong You Bing). Yilan is famous for cultivating spring onion, therefore you can imagine how fresh the spring onion can be.

Our driver recommended us this stall for the Cong You Bing; “San Xing“.

Cong You Bing is actually a delicacy which lots of chopped spring onions with some minced meat wrapped underneath a thin layer of dough.

See those freshly chopped spring onions…

The Cong You Bing is then fried on a pan.

And if you want your cong you bing to be spicy, they will sprinkle some chili powder on top of it. Just like the Shilin Crispy Chicken.

A bite into the Cong You Bing reveals a thin layer of crispy and spicy skin with juicy and fragrant spring onions flavoured with minced meat. It tasted awesome!

Although I don’t really like spring onion, but I too got addicted to this cong you bing. :P
