Absolutely DELICIOUS!! I loved them and my meat-eating husband also really enjoyed them. We didn’t feel we needed or wanted the hoisin sauce as the mushrooms were beautifully saucy.

Simple, easy, and delicious. It does say it's a starter so either add more mushrooms or add a side to make a main meal out of it.

Makes a nice healthy alternative to crispy duck, and while you can't beat crispy duck pancakes once in a while the healthy benefits makes this a good regular meal, leaving the duck version for a treat

Has anybody found Chinese pancakes in one of the supermarkets please? I'm struggling to find them and this looks delicious! Thanks

I realise this is a rather late reply, but in case it's useful for anyone else, I've been able to get Chinese pancakes in Waitrose, and sometimes in a large Tesco. They're generally in the ready meal section.
