Melodie ~ I can't find a recipe for rice cake, the kind that the manapua man used to serve. It was really sticky, white & had holes on the inside of it. They usually cut it into triangles. I live in Las Vegas & have no way of getting some unless I make it myself. Help!! Thanks! :)
Aunty ~ It's amazing that so many people ask about this particular recipe. The rice cake is called "Bok Tong Go".
Here is a story (and recipes) from the Honolulu Star Bulletin. The recipe is kind of complicated (not because of the ingredients, but because of the technique involved in fermenting the rice mix just right). It's so complicated, in fact, that it would be easier for you to go to a Chinese restaurant in LV that serves dim sum (find a restaurant that serves Hong Kongese food---I'm not sure a Cantonese restaurant would make these) and just ask them if they have "Bok Tong Go".
