Just looked on the Sun Penang website, but it only shows beef egg rolls...will he make pork/shrimp if you ask? I also haven't had a chance to email the History Center yet!

ChefTD, I just made that post about the Heinz History Center today. I will email them this weekend, as I have a few contacts there. As soon as I hear something I will let the group know. Also, maybe we should try putting the pear and apricot in the sauce, as per the article cited earlier? Thanks!

Your post gave me an idea, similar to the person who spoke of contacting the Post-Gazette. The Heinz History Center has a Curator of Food & Fitness. She specializes in the history of the region's cuisine. Perhaps it might be worthwhile to contact her, a good project? Also, I found this article from 2000 that contains several clues as to ingredients: http://old.post-gazette.com/food/2000...

Judging by the article, the recipe is Cantonese. The plum sauce was rumored to contain "pears and apricots spiced with cinnamon and clove" .
Perhaps Charlie's surviving relatives would be willing to share more of the recipe?

I tried to post my contact information on here, but the moderators deleted it- I guess the only way for us to get the recipe is for some kind soul to post it! Please oh pretty please- my family would be so happy and surprised to taste these egg rolls.

Thank you so much for that recipe! I'm still searching for the egg roll recipe!! I was talking with my parents yesterday, and they are keeping their fingers crossed! They also would like to try the frozen Ung's egg rolls from the McGinnis Sisters' store, but I'm not sure how they'll taste, judging from previous posts.

Thanks again!

Hi Craig,

Did anyone from the list ever contact you with a recipe? Thanks!

Hello!

Could you please pretty please send me your recipe for the delicious egg rolls from Ung's Tea Garden? I can still remember the taste of them! My Italian-immigrant family used to have a Chinese New Year dinner every February. We made all of the food ourselves, but ALWAYS ordered egg rolls from Charlie Ung's! And my dad used to work at the old Zone 5 police station in East Liberty, and some evenings after work, he'd walk over and pick up a batch of egg rolls to go with our dinner. I really really really miss those egg rolls! If you or anyone else has the recipe, I would be so thankful!
