Additional Recipe Info

Lo Mai means glutinous rice in Cantonese, and Gai means chicken. This dish is also known as "sticky rice with chicken in lotus leaf wrap." It is a classic breakfast item that you can grab from street vendors while heading to school or work. It is also served as a dim sum dish in tea house restaurants which was one of my favorite places to go on a weekend morning when I lived in China. I will be honest, this is a challenging recipe, but it is so delicious that worth trying.
