Shep's post in the Dong Po pork thread reminded me that 'tis the season for these. Perhaps someone like Lambert can tell us the legend associated with them.

I had one for lunch today from Cheung Hing on Noriega in SF. Folded in a rectangular rather than pyramidal shape, it had half a salted duck egg, salt pork, and peanuts inside. Not bad for $1.80. They also make them with beans instead of peanuts.

I also like the ones from Eastern Bakery on Grant Ave. in SF Chinatown. They're bigger and priced accordingly.

Has anyone tried the ones that Yuet Lee has hanging on the walls? Where are your favorites?
