Sticky Rice in Bamboo Leaves

kctraveller | Jan 21, 2008 07:09 PM

I was saddened recently to see that one of my favorite stores in Chinatown had closed. They mainly sold sticky rice in bamboo leaves (zhong zhi...or something like that) with some other Chinese goods and pastries. A little place off Mott as the street curved (as you're walking south).

They look like this:

Can anyone suggest another place to get my bamboo/sticky rice fix? I'm looking for a store where I can buy them and bring home. The ones in the grocery stores (if I can even find them) look so unfresh and unappetizing.
