Mandarin pancakes 北京烤鸭面饼 (běi jīng kǎo yā miàn bǐng)

Thin wheat crêpes that look similar to Mexican tortillas, they are used to roll up duck meat and other fillings when eating Peking duck. You can make them yourself with the recipe on page 260, or go the easy route and buy them frozen from an Asian grocery store. If using frozen ones, they should be warmed individually in a dry skillet just before serving. They are also called Mandarin crêpes or duck pancakes.
