I'm thinking of tackling this this week, but I need some pointers or additional information.

The meat: is that just red cooked beef or is it something else. From my long ago visit to Sam Woo BBQ, my local sui mei place, I think they listed something as 'soy sauce beef' I'm guessing it's like soy sauce chicken? Also I'm thinking of breaking with tradition with char sui or thit nuong since I have some suitable pork in the freezer I want to use and to try those recipes.

The bread: Not sure what type they are using. It seems to have more structure then a tortilla, so I'm thinking it's something like a cong you bing with out the onions or something like a shaobing, but on a griddle. Any thoughts?

I think there is green onion in one of your source images; in either event, pretty sure it is cong you bing in some renditions. In others, it might be essentially what you say - a cong you bing minus the cong. It's definitely a flaky pancake. You could probably find something similar in the freezer section of the Asian market if you don't want to make it from scratch.

I don't think it's hong shao beef - I don't eat / cook meat, so not sure what it is, though.
