soup buns, outside of Beijing, hopefully in LA ?

for all you china-philes, where can i find soup buns aka tang bao tse? I know all the usual suspects for soup dumplings, but none have this particular animal.

picture a very round and almost flat steamed bun with soupy mixture inside it. its about 10x larger than a soup dumpling, yet it has a similar swirled dough look with the pinched ends top-and-center, and a thick straw (boba straw) stuck in the center for you to slurp out of.
