Savoury or sweet, made to order and cooked quickly to a golden crust on the hotplate, these chewy Korean pancakes are sold takeaway from a tiny kiosk on a street corner in Auckland city. We got there nice and early to beat the lunch queue and shared a ham, cheese and pineapple pancake for a deliciously cheap NZ$4. No wonder it’s a favourite greasy snack stop for the local university students. Thanks to TFP reader Virginie for the great tip – this one’s a real treasure. Do you have a favourite snack stop in your city?
We’d have eaten more than one shared pancake, but we were saving ourselves for afternoon tea at The Langham – that blog post coming soon.

This trip to Auckland and Waiheke Island, New Zealand was planned by Jac and me. We paid for all meals, accommodation and activities; the exception was 1 x return premium economy flight Perth to Auckland, which I received at an Air New Zealand launch event last year. Everything I blog about the trip is based on our experiences and all opinions are ours.
