Ye er Ba, also known as Ai Mo, was originally a traditional snack for people in the western part of Sichuan, which is often served during the Qingming Festival (Tomb-Sweeping Day). In 1940, the Tianzhai Snack Bar in Xindu District, Chengdu, improved Ai Mo elaborately and renamed it as Ye er Ba. With fine color, unique shape and refreshing flavor, Ye er Ba is listed among top Sichuan snacks. It is named as Ye er Ba because it is a steamed glutinous rice cake filled with stuffings wrapped in leaves. The leaves used for it are normally tangerine leaves, plantain leaves, bamboo leaves and lotus leaves.
