Cong you bing—a scallion oil pancake—is one of Shanghai’s most famous and delicious street foods. Stuffed with scallions grilled in pork fat, this pancake is roasted until crispy in a kiln to create an irresistible combo of crunchy on the outside and chew on the inside. Nobody makes them better than Mr. Wu, a hunchbacked old man whose legendary stall on Nanchang Road generates queues up to an hour long starting as early as 6 a.m.
