Looking for Chinese Tamales/Joong in Seattle

I know that the festival is celebrated in late May through June, but does anyone know of a tamale/joong maker year 'round? Have a taste for a joong with mung beans that has been killing me lately

  1. Asian supermarkets like Uwajimaya and 99 Ranch should have them around that time. And they're usually not half bad. Oftentimes, you can get them at dim sum places too.

    1. A lot of the BahnMi shops in the International District keep a bunch around year round. Other than that, the only place I know to get them year round is my mom's house ;-).

      Also, this is the first time I've ever heard joong called Chinese Tamales before!
