Korean Red Bean bread

I have bought this bread at Han Yang Market and New Oriental Market, but was wondering if there is a source for a better quality bread in Austin. I believe that they both carry a bread from a bakery in Dallas (I can't remember the name right now - New York Bakery perhaps?). My fiancee is Korean and turned me on to this wonderful bread (which I LOVE) but says that the quality is not that great. Does anybody know of any other source in the Austin area?

    1. Have you tried Lucky Bakery? Their website says they have it. I haven't been there, but to be honest I wouldn't know good red bean bread from bad.

        Thank you stephanieh, I will go by and see what they have. Since they are a Chinese bakery the bread may not be what I am looking for but I would like to see their selection. All of this is a new experience for me and I am just starting to learn.

          I saw they were different countries. I thought it might be nice to have some from a bakery vs bread that's shipped in, just for comparison. I've been meaning to go to Lucky Bakery to try some.

      2. Frankly, I think the Korean kind/brand at Han Yang/New Oriental is better than the Chinese you can get in Austin (MT, Asia Market, Lucky Bakery). The bread's denser, with a more substantial filling. The Chinese breads are cheaper, though.
