ISO Lotus Leaves

tarteaucitron | Jun 11, 2008 11:27 AM

I've been meaning to make a simple version of the Chinese dim sum item called Lo Mai Gai, basically steamed parcels of glutinous rice with an assortment of fillings, wrapped in lotus leaves.

However, I cannot seem to find the lotus leaves anywhere in GTA, even in the various T&T's, (although I do find the other kind of leaf that is much longer in shape and used to wrap the other kind of rice dumpling that is typically eaten at the Dragon Boat festival, which just happened this past Sunday.)

Does anyone know where to find them? Here are some pictures for reference. Cheers!
