Sticky rice wrapped in various leaves is one of our favorite things about China. Shanghai offers renditions from all over Asia, including Cantonese lo mai gai, Thai Khao Lam, and most famous, zongzi, sticky rice and other fillings wrapped in bamboo or lotus leaves. The version we've been hitting up recently is jiang mi kou rou (江米扣肉), glutinous rice and steamed pork with a banana leaf (36RMB). Unlike most rice-banana leaf combos, the rice is served alongside, rather than inside the leaf. It looks like a zongzi disrobed.
