Need a source for great Char Siu Pork

I'm making buns from Andrea Nguyen's superb cookbook Asian Dumplings. I've had great success with her other recipes... The ONLY issue I have is that her recipe for char siu pork -- while delicious -- simply isnt the same as in Chinatown.

So rather than mess around with the recipes, I figure I'd just pick up some of the real thing, hanging in the windows in Chinatown. Anybody know which shop has the best stuff?

As a bonus, if you have a recipe for the char siu bao filling (the sauce/cornstarch mix that you combine with the chopped char siu to make the filling for the buns) I'm all ears.

Immensely grateful for any help!
