Looking for cha siu bao (hawaiian manapua) and noodle houses in DFW area

I've just returned from Hawaii and cant get the Chinatown experience out of my mind. One of the dishes i'm trying to find is what the locals call a Manapua, which i've found is the Chinese cha siu bao- pork bun. I've found a couple that are the frozen steamed kind which are ok, but i'm looking for a place that maybe does them fresh. Also i've seen some post for noodle houses, but what i really want to find are the fresh rice noodle rolls that sometimes have the pork or dried shrimp with veggies etc. I guess i can either try and find some places here in DFW or my only other option is to move there!
Thanks in advance
