Where do I find non-wheat mooncakes?

I'm aware that mooncakes don't pass the paleo purity test, but I'm not looking for an optimal food, just a once-annually treat that won't give me IBS flareups.

I've seen some in Taiwan that were made with mochi and other other things, but I don't have the first clue where I could get those in the US.

This one looks good too: http://rasamalaysia.com/snow-skin-mooncake/2/ Unfortunately, I can't make them at home this year.

Thanks, I'm making a list of recipes for next year, but this year I'm stuck with ordering or foregoing. If you're in Chinatown and you can't find alternative mooncakes, I probably don't have much of a chance. :/

Pretty sure I've seen a discussion or two on here about reasonable cheating.

NotPaleoHacks.com would be a good start.

GODDDDDD BLESS the person who can address this. I work in Chinatown and the fam has been making their requests. 'Tis the season.

In the meantime, there's this raw vegan recipe, if you want to put the effort into something similar: http://www.rawveganhongkong.com/2009/09/13/second-attempt-for-raw-vegan-moon-cake/
