Where can I find Manapua? (or even Polynesian Restaurant)

kzoopetro Jan 5, 2009 07:54 PM

My father is coming to visit me and he mentioned that he hadn't had Manapua since he lived in Hawaii twenty years ago. I've never had them, but as I understand they are similar to Chinese bao.
Does anyone know a restaurant where they serve them? I have looked for a Polynesian restaurant but can't seem to find one, it seems like there would be my best bet.
Otherwise, does anyone have a favourite dim sum places. I've tried a few on/around Argyle, but am open to new places.
