Hi... Looking for those chokey chewy dough balls from the film Tampopo, that nearly killed the old gent (till they saved him with a vacuum hose). In the film, they looked like small bao, if I recall, but had this insane elasticity that appear to make them fun to eat. What ARE these, and can they be found in Los Angeles? Thanks!
