Chinese curry beef turnovers/bbq pork puffs/chicken pies in SF?

My uncle who lives in an area with no good dim sum or Chinese bakeries has requested some Chinese curry beef turnovers, bbq pork puffs, and chicken pies (the puff pastry turnover kind). Where's a good takeout bakery place to get them, preferably on Clement or Irving or somewhere in Richmond/Sunset districts with easy parking? They don't have to be the best ever (he'll probably appreciate anything since he hasn't had them in so long), but nonetheless where can I find some solid renditions?

  1. SW corner of 6th and Clement, Wing Lee Bakery on Clement next to BBQ place of same owners.

    1. There are 2 Sheng Kee locations on Irving one at 9th and one at 21st

      1. Thanks for the advice. When I stopped in at Wing Lee, they didn't have any on display - and with the long line, I didn't get a chance to ask if they regularly have them or if they had any baking. I ended up getting some at Red A Bakery - they had the curry beef turnovers and bbq pork puffs. We've liked the egg custard tarts from there in the past. I haven't tried any of the curry turnovers of bbq pork puffs, so I can't give an account of how good they really are. But I will note that they looked better than the ones across the street at Clement Bakery.
