Lo mai gai is a traditional dim sum of the Han nationality and belongs to the Cantonese cuisine. It contains glutinous rice filled with chicken, roasted pork, salted egg yolk, Chinese mushroom, etc. The ball of rice is then wrapped in a dried lotus leaf and steamed. A bite of steamed rice mixes with fragrance of lotus leaf and meaty aroma of chicken.

糯米鸡是中国南方汉族特色点心的一种,属于粤菜菜系,制法是在糯米里面放入鸡肉、叉烧肉、咸蛋黄、冬菇等馅料,然后以荷叶包实放到蒸具蒸熟。糯米鸡入口充满着荷叶的清香,咀嚼时黏牙并带有着鸡肉的肉香。

Legend goes that Lo mai gai was stemmed from the night market of Guangzhou before 1949, and the initial version was steamed in a bowl. Peddlers changed the bowls into lotus leaves in order to carry Lo mai gai along with them for sale. Lo mai gai is traditionally large so that it almost amounts to half portion of a meal. Sometimes lo mai gai is divided into smaller wraps, which are known as "pearl chicken" in Chinese.

相传糯米鸡起源是解放(1949)前广州的夜市,最初是以碗盖着蒸熟而成,后来为小贩为方便肩挑出售,改为以荷叶包裹。古传统的糯米鸡的份量较大,吃一个糯米鸡已差不多是半顿饭量。因此,1980年代起的广东酒楼推出材料相同,而体积小一半的“珍珠鸡”。
