tai yang bing - anyone know where to find them in flushing?

I've eaten alot in flushing, but i haven't really eaten at many bakeries in flushing. I'm looking for tai yang bing, which is a famous taiwanese pastry that translates to sun cake in english.

They are great, but sort of hard to find. I just got back from taiwan and i forgot how good they are, however even in taipei they aren't super common, we were walking around bakeries in my friends neighborhood and everyone we asked was like uhh i dont know where you get those, one of them even joked "go to tai zhong" (a city in taipei that is famous for making them) when we asked her if she knew another bakery that sold them (we finally had to resort to go to some semi famous bakery that wasn't all that close to us although they were good).

Does anyone know where to find them in flushing? They definitely do not have them in manhattan chinatown, i've looked before, tai yang bing are also distinctly taiwanese and there are very few taiwanese in manhattan chinatown.
