The original thread is getting a bit unwieldy so I thought I would start version 2.0. Here is a link to the old thread: https://www.chowhound.com/post/gta-ta....
Today we decided to investigate Bamboo Leaves, a somewhat nondescript storefront in the Gerrard Chinatown. They specialize in triangular pyramids of sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaves. These are available warm or also frozen for steaming/boiling at home.
- sticky rice with ham-like pork, Chinese sausage, possibly beans and a second version with roast pork, Chinese sausage, and peanuts - both quite tasty
- fried sticky rice dumpling with kohlrabi and ground pork - a bit oily, but otherwise good
- fried sticky rice dumpling with sweet potato - also a bit oily, with nice subtle spicing.
