Chinese Deboned Chicken Stuffed with Sticky Rice?

Update, I finally went to Hop Li Seafood in LA Chinatown and had this dish. Unfortunately it wasn't exactly like the dish I had in Sacramento and I was a bit disappointed even though the dish was good.

What I had in Sacramento was a whole chicken, completely deboned with all the meat removed, leaving a chicken skin "sack". The meat is then chopped up and mixed in with sticky rice, mushrooms, Chinese sausage and other mix-ins and stuffed back into the skin. The entire chicken is then deep-fried to produce a crispy, crunchy outside. I do remember that the sticky rice was a bit greasy, maybe from staying in the frying oil too long?

What I had at Hop Li was a whole chicken, completely deboned. The meat appeared to be left intact and the voids in the chicken filled with sticky rice mixture similar to what was mentioned above. I don't believe the chicken was deep-fried, but the skin was crispy. Accompany the chicken was a large bowl of mushroom sauce/gravy.

Both chickens are cut into large "squares" and the Hop Li chicken had pieces that contained no sticky rice because they were complete pieces of chicken meat (especially the breast area).

I'll try a few of the other restaurants in SoCal to see if I can find what I had in Sacramento. At the same time, I have some friends investigating locations in SF to try on our next visit up. Hope this helps!

I wrote in English as I do not speak/write Chinese. Understand a bit of Toy San (a village dialect similar to Cantonese), but not enough to be comfortable trying to speak it!

Thanks for the tip, K K. I've emailed Bon Marche Bistro. I also googled Cantonese Restaurants Los Angeles and have sent a few emails to some of the older, more established ones, as well. Let's see if I get any love. Thanks!

Can there possibly be NO restaurant in the greater LA area that has this dish!? I find that really hard to believe!

Chinese Deboned Chicken Stuffed with Sticky Rice?

I googled this and came up with a post from the SF area boards, but nothing in LA. I just had this dish again in Sacramento last weekend and figured I'd probably be able to find a great version down here in LA, as well. Anybody have any suggestions on restaurants that serve this? Located Mid-City here, but willing to travel to parts east (Monterey Park and further) to get this. Any and all help appreciated! Thanks!
