    Hi Anita, thank you for visiting my blog so I could find yours! Whenever i make dumplings I always end up having some extra chives left in my fridge. This chive pancake sounds like a perfect way to use up the extra chives! I like how you add oyster sauce and fish sauce to flavor the pancakes. Thanks for sharing this simple but delicious recipe!

    Hi Anita, I love your website! A few years ago I moved into a large condominium building. I have many wonderful neighbors from China, Japan and Thailand. They have introduced me to many of the ingredients that you use in your dishes. I now cook with lotus root, dried bean curd stick, Chinese green onions and other things I had never used before. My husband is so pleased with all the delicious meals I prepare with the ingredients that I buy at an extensive Korean market which carries these items. Wow, I'm 60 years old and never thought I'd learn to cook so many dishes different from the ones I grew up with! Thank you for your beautiful blog. Kristin
