where can I find good chinese tamales (joong)

I recently moved here from San Francisco. I realize that I may have to reset my expectations for Chinese, especially Cantonese style, food. I'm trying to find a place that sells good joong, those Chinese tamales with sticky rice hopefully with a salted egg yolk, pork, and other assorted goodies. I bought one in Chinatown from a woman selling them and was quite underwhelmed. Does anyone know where to find good ones? I think it can also be called zhong zi in Mandarin. Thanks.
