5. Sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf at Kon Chau Restaurant
In this Kon Chau creation, glorious sticky rice is enhanced with the fragrance of lotus leaves. Unwrapping this present ($5.50) is a steamy endeavor, one that reveals chunks of pork, chicken, and delicious Chinese sausage.

Cabbage wrapped.
4. Malfouf at Kabobji
Malfouf ($6.99) are stuffed with rice and ground beef and wrapped into long cabbage cylinders and served with tomato sauce and Middle Eastern spices. They take a dip in a cool yogurt and cucumber sauce. If you want a different wrapping, try the dolmas -- they're wrapped in grape leaves.
