They look like discs, or small green hockey puck type of buns.

I am looking for them in the So. NH No. MA area, but will travel as far as Boston. My neighbor just adopted a young girl from China and she informed me this was her favorite food, She and I cannot find them anywhere! I wanted to surprise her with some as a gift, so if you can tell me a place that sells them pre-made you would have made a young girl a tad less homesick.

    How nice of you.

    Try calling North Garden in Manchester, to see if they can help you.

    Here is their Dim Sum menu. I don't see what you are looking for, but maybe they'll make some for you.


    I've never been, so don't know the quality they serve.

    Good luck.

      I did call them, and they do not have them. :( But thank you anyways.

      Definitely post on the Boston board. Someone will most likely know the name and where you can get some.

        I am taking your advice, and doing just that, thank you. Maybe I will get lucky and be able to get them frozen to make at home as well :)

        Try China Pearl in Woburn, Ma. too. They also have one in Boston but if you don't have to travel in don't. Their carts were pretty extensive when we went one sunday.

          There are a few items at dimsum with shrimp chive. I think this is the one you are thinking of. It is shrimp/chives in a medium thick skin. Steamed and panfried. You can get them at just about any dimsum restaurant in boston or china pearl in woburn as mentioned. Sorry for the blurry photo
