After making okonomiyaki,
the cabbage stuffed Japanese pancake, I became curious about other Japanese pancakes. I’ve made pajeon,
a Korean version on okonomiyaki made with nira or Chinese chives. I’ve since learned that it is very popular in Japan where it is called chijimi.
On the sweet side are doriyaki,
the popular Japanese sweet pancake-sandwich filled with sweet bean jam. Then I considered crepes, the delicate French pancakes with the lacy edges. I thought about the historic influence of Japan and Europe upon each other…
So why would there not be such a thing as Japanese crepes?
