Gum Wah - Joong (sticky rice tamales) [Oakland]

Okay, not sure if I spelt it correctly, but it's the savory tamale in a pyramid like shape, wrapped in leaves?

Got one at Gum Wah for $2. The lady asked me if I wanted peanuts, I said yes, so there may be non-peanut options?

Didn't get a chance to eat it till the next day, but steamed in the microwave for a few minutes and to me, it's pretty good. Not enough duck egg to pass my dad's scrutiny (about 1/4) but the pork is moist and there are a few pieces of pork fat scattered throughout to keep it flavorful.
