Wrapped Machang

Machang Unwrapped

A complete meal of sticky rice with meat (pork & chicken), salted egg, mushroom and chestnut.
Rather than just steaming it, much better to have it boiled in water so the aroma and taste
comes out of the pack.

Zongzi (or simply zong) (Chinese) is a traditional Chinese food, made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves. They are cooked by steaming or boiling. Laotians, Thais, and Cambodians (known as nom asom) also have similar traditional dishes. In the Western world, they are also known as rice dumplings. In Indonesia and Malaysia, they are known as bakcangbacang, or zang (Chinese肉粽Pe̍h-ōe-jī: bah-chàng), a loanword from Hokkien, a Chinese dialect commonly used among Indonesian-Chinese, rather than Mandarin. Along the same lines, zongzi are more popularly known as machang among Chinese Filipinos in the Philippines.
