anyplace serve Bunny Chow?

I just ran across a reference to a South African street food called Bunny Chow -- it's any type of curry stuffed into a loaf of white bread.
Here's a rather amusing explanation:
Has anyone ever seen this in L.A. or maybe in Artesia? Sounds like it would be fun to try.
I've been to the Springbok in LB (Shoreline Village) a few times for lunch and while I haven't had the bunny chow, I will say that their calamari plate, served on a nicely seasoned bed of rice, is delicious. The breading is light and mixed with a few herbs, fried to perfect tenderness.
I've also tried the boerewors roll (a giant sausage on a French roll), which kind of overwhelmed me. And the chicken liver peri peri, which is like a really good chili con carne made with chicken livers. No, it IS good.
But my favorite thing there is the biltong, which you can order by the half- or full-pound, to go. I did have one marginal batch (I think they make it there), but the others have been habit forming. Meat crack!
That is very much fun. If I didn't have dinner in the oven right now, I might be tempted to make one of these...unless getting to Van Nuys might be faster!
