It turns out that people aren't too sure why it's called Weeping Tiger. Some people say that the tiger is crying because the hunter took its cow. Others propose that the tiger is crying because the dish uses the most tender cut of the cow leaving the tiger with all the tough parts. Another myth is that the dish is so delicious that it is enough to make a tiger cry tears of happiness. I like to believe in the last one because sad, hungry tigers will eat you and happy tigers might not eat you :)

1. Song Kran: This restaurant serves it but they use flank steak so expect a tougher cut.
2. Khao Sarn: This one serves it under "Tiger Tears" but it's in Brooklyn.
Sorry, I wish this list could be more comprehensive but I had a hard time finding places that serve this. If you find another in the city, let me know!
On the bright side, check out these recipes below and hopefully you'll decide to make it yourself:
1. About.com or UKTV: Both similar recipes. Use alternative recipe if you need clarification.
2. Food.com: Uses toasted rice for the chili sauce. Could be interesting.
3. Eating Isn't Cheating: Recipe with accompanying Coconut Jasmine rice. Perfect match.
