"Joongs" = Chinese sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaf. Generally can come with different types of filling.
Got a few of these from Ming's mom. I haven't tried them yet but my dad already loves them cause he thinks they're so cute. They're smaller than the ones you may buy outside. It fits in your palm. Imagine that - cute joongs!
I loved them as a kid. They're generally only available around this time of year so it's not always that you get to eat joongs. Plus, they look like little presents, all wrapped up in bamboo leaves and tied together with string. And opening up the sticky rice to find its filling is almost a fun surprise. They come in sweet and savoury versions. I prefer the savoury.
