What's this dim sum item?

Was at Hei La Moon yesterday (which was awesome: we were right where the carts come out and it was the moon festival ... everything was even better than usual, and lots of items I don't typically see). I found an item that I'd never seen before (there or anywhere else).

Basically it was a big clump of the fried rice that comes in the bowls, but surrounded by that sweetish/fluffy white dough that you see the char siu bau and such wrapped in (but smooth on the outside). It was oval shaped - looked like it was made as a 'loaf' and then sliced.
