Black sesame pastries?

Does anyone know of a bakery/ pastry shop/ store in Vancouver or Richmond that sells sesame pastries (shao bing?) or sesame balls (Jin deui?) with a black sesame filling?

I have seen similar items at T&T in the frozen section but I havn't had any luck finding them fresh in a pastry shop.

Any info would be much appreciated. I'm hooked on that sesame paste...

  1. I only see them served in restaurants. (I haven't really looked for these items 'to go').

      Yeah me too. Thanks for the reply. I will keep searching.

        I've seen them at some of the shops that sell frozen dim sum. Gah Lok (Fraser/26th) comes to mind, and I'm sure some others might too.

        Fried sesame balls (jin deui) I've not seen frozen, but fresh I've seen at T&T (Metrotown and 1st Avenue stores have the most). Some of the Chinatown bakeries have them, like New Town on Pender.
