Tried the poppyseed version at Market Hall Bakery and was a little disappointed. The filling was meager and the outside too cookie-ish (buttery, sweet and crumbly) for my liking.

What are good places to get Hamantaschen plump with filling and a less sweet dough?

        Sophia Cafe on Solano should have them. I believe they have mun, but not 100% sure.

      Cinderella Bakery. They have them year round, I think.
