Mango rice flour balls at Fay Da Bakery

On the same evening as the Dragon Gate dinner, I was able to sneak a pastry, so I got this mango rice flour ball, at Fay Da Bakery just down Elizabeth (between Grand and Hester). They're bright orange, with bits of coconut sprinkled around them. They have a similar taro version that's purple. This stuff was amazing. It had a real strong mango taste, and it was filled with something a little creamy to balance out the gelatinous rice cake texture. Very nice. I haven't seen these in other bakeries, but it's most likely because I haven't looked out for them. Fay Da is a chain of chinese bakeries with outlets in Chinatown, Flushing, Elmhurst, and Sunset Park. If anyone knows of other places that has these, please let us know.
