Best place for Nan Gua Bing

ken ivorous | Apr 23, 2009 02:48 AM

on my too-short trip to vancouver i was only able to sample nan gua (jian) bing from a couple of places. just wondering if i missed better renditions elsewhere.

nan gua bing (mandarin), or naam gua beng (cantonese) are those pan-fried, red-bean-paste-filled, orange colored discs about the diameter of your finger. found in shanghai- or northern-focused places.

i had them at shanghai shanghai in richmond at aberdeen center's food court stall #3010. they were very very good.

i also had them at shanghai wonderful restaurant in richmond. they may have been called nan gua yuan or something like that at this place, because they were ball-shaped. they were good but significantly inferior to the shanghai shanghai stall - and more expensive too.

does anyone know of any stands, food courts, restaurants, etc. that make these particularly well? (and also for sheng jian bao if you happen to know) thanks for the help!
