Pajeon (Green-onion Pancake) is a dish made by mixing flour, egg, and green onion and frying the combination on a pan. As the ingredients and cooking method are similar to a pancake and its appearance is similar to pizza, pajeon is often called “Korean pancake” or “Korean pizza” among foreigners. The New York Times introduced pajeon as a type of pancake suitable for dinner, along with Italian pancakes with vegetables and spinach pancakes from Northern Europe. The newspaper also mentioned that pajeon is usually dipped in soy sauce, mixed with vinegar and sugar and is a popular dish that can appeal to people with various tastes.
