trying to remember the name of a thai snack
hey, first time poster here! sawatdee ka!
I lived in thailand for a year back in 1999, and went back for 3 months in 2001/2002. I miss it so much, and reading all these thai sites and forums is just bringing back floods of memories and making me miss everything even more *sigh*
ANYWAY, i can't remember the name of this snack I used to eat all the time.
I lived in Surin, and every day after school a lady would come by with a cart. She made these delicious snacks.
It was like pancake mix which she would spread out over the hot plate. As it was cooking she'd crack a tiny egg onto the pancake and spread it around. She would then add some minced pork (i think), and some shallots/spring onions, and then some chilli sauce and then she would roll it up. Served and eaten with great pleasure!
If anyone can tell me what its called, the exact ingredients (if i missed anything), or even a photo of it, I'd be grateful forever!

i've gone through most of those photos, no luck so far. but thank you for your suggestion.
i just thought there may have been someone on the forum who knows offhand what the snack was called. i can't believe i've forgotten it.

Not sure what this is. Was it very thin like a crepe or thick like a roti?

There are 3 things came to my mind but nothing seem right,
(1) Roti, which made from dough, flaten it on hot plate, and the eggs, and if you want sweet version, they put lot of sugar and condense milk. Could not see where is mince pork come into this.
(2) Khanom Tokyo, which is like rolled tiny pancake. Made from pancake batter spooned onto hot plate to make small circle-ish, while it is setting, for savoury version, put in tiny hot dog, mince pork and chopped spring onion, and may be somekind of sauce, then roll it. Can't see when they crack any egg on it unless it is different version.
(3) Crepe which is not exactly Thai but they are around. I think each person might have his/her own version. That will explain the cracking egg and everything else.
How big the snack is, by the way, you will easily put 2-3 khanom tokyo in your palm. Crepe will be quite big, normally I need both hands to hold it.
