Nian Gao (frozen rice cakes not the kid's snack disks)!

Is it just me or have the big chain groceries (even Whole Foods and Fresh Market) limited the variety of Asian ingredients they stock? Seems like I have have my choice of 10 different brands of soy sauce but forget about fermented black beans! Specifically, I'd love to find nian gao -- not the sweet sticky New Year's cake -- but those frozen oval slices that are chewy when cooked and look like a hard boiled egg sliced lengthwise (but with no yoke!) some where close by. Has anyone found them outside of either Chinatown? (or in a chain with multiple locations?) Thanks!
