"Old Wife Cakes" (Lao Po Bing) at Kee Wah Bakery

Reading the thread about Old Man (or Husband) Cakes, I've gotta give equal time to the feminine equivalent, lao po bing. My favorite is from Kee Wah Bakery. Two weeks ago passing through Dublin I had a chance to pick up some. I still like them very much here due to the much more delicate and thin pastry shell and less sugary filling. Priced at $2 apiece, they should be better as that's double (or triple) what other bakeries charge.

When I lamented to the counter lady that I wished Kee Wah would open a branch closer to me in SF, she mentioned that the newest location is in Cupertino. She said that it is larger, serves beverages and has cafe seating. I'm wondering if any 'hounds have checked it out yet.
