Sidewalk Sticky Rice

A few weekends ago, while walking through Philly's Chinatown, I came across some ladies selling food on the street under an umbrella in front of Ming River. They had sticky rice, tofu, and other things I couldn't 100% identify- maybe some red bean paste? I picked up a container of sticky rice, they offered the standard wrapped in the banana leaf version, but I wanted to try the other because it looked different than what I am used to.

Now I don't really know what the hell was in that rice, but it was very tasty. I bought some chinese sausage to cook and added it in. And with at $2 , I am hoping I see these ladies again.
