I found some videos of a Chinese Egg Pancake ("Dan Bing") being prepared by a roadside vendor.

Here is the "northern style":

I'm dying to know what these taste like.

That does look intresting. Do you know what they were brushing it with and what went inside it. I tried googling a recipe and came up blank.

There's a fella named Dave that's living in Shanghai now and he has a page devoted to the dish. Apparently it's addictive:

My husband was in China for business last year,and lived on these~!!!!Said it was the best native food he had(he just couldnt get beyond the chicken feet on the breakfast buffets)he really wants to go back as the Chinese people were very welcoming of Americans...
