Need help in duplicating an unusual Chinese duck sauce for egg rolls..

I lived about 15 minutes away walking distance and I too ate there a couple times a week. All I can say is Ill know it when I taste it. And what I tasted today didn't come close. The guy who gave me the ingredients worked for the Ung family. But with that said, he didn't have the correct taste for the egg roll so I doubted the ingredients for the duck sauce. I'll know it if I ever get a chance to taste it again.

Yes, I agree with the shrimp. It didn't taste like those little salad shrimps

I remember the taste of both the sauce and egg roll. The guy I spoke with today (Stephen) said the duck sauce was made from sweet potatoes, Apple sauce, lemon and peaches.

I was so excited that I went to the restaurant in Squirrel hill today and it so happened that Stephen was my waiter. I'm sorry to say but those were not the Tea Garden eggrolls. Stephen was very sweet and we talked for a while about the Tea Garden, the eggrolls and the duck sauce. I told him that eggrolls were not crunchy they were more chewy and it was bland it was definitely missing something. I was charged 5.00 for this eggroll which caught me by surprise. He wasn't the one who made it but I'm gonna definitely keep searching for these eggrolls:)

My mouth is watering too. I would hop on the Eba during my lunch break go to East Liberty and hop right back on the bus and head downtown. I have to get this recipe right.. I feel like an addict needing an eggroll fix. Smh

I saw this a couple years ago. I wish the son would cook again:( I I have yet to find an eggroll to come close to Mr Ungs. I have tasted the duck sauce that came close, though.

Pchbeaches, the comment was more for the people who have asked and been constantly ignored. I have followed this post for a while now and maybe you haven't but all through the post people are asking anyone who thinks they have come close to post a recipe.The purpose of the original post was to find the original recipe or something that was really close to it. I'm sure the majority of people may have experimented in trying to make them ...myself included. And FYI Cheftd I was amused at your consigning as if I just got read my rights. Lol To eaches own

This post has been going on for a couple years. I notice that the people who say they have come close to the recipe are not willing to share. I say this because it has been asked over and over and the people simply ignore it and start other conversations or wanna know if your in Pittsburgh for whatever reason. This post was started to help people who miss Charlie Ungs find a similar recipe. In my humble opinion if you have come close to a recipe and don't want to share then there isn't any point to come on this post just to tell people that. Its ridiculous.

TEA GARDEN EGG ROLLS

No, I haven't. Unfortunately the people who have claimed they have come close to the recipe or know it will not post it:( If I ever find it, O will post

TEA GARDEN EGG ROLLS

I have recently been have cravings for these eggs rolls again. I lived in Pittsburgh my whole life and was saddened when they closed. No other chinese place has come close to there eggs rolls, rice or sauce. I saw in some threads about a year or two ago that some people feel they have come close to duplicating the taste. If you are one of those people PLEASE POST your version of the recipe. Please:)

Cimero and anyone else who believe they have duplicated this recipe, would you be kind enough to actually post your recipe here on the thread. I live in Pittsburgh and I have been craving the Tea Garden egg rolls. I was raised on their delicious food. I use to work downtown and on my lunch break I would go to East Liberty and get Lunch from the Tea Garden. Please help me out:)
