The Mid-Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival which falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month is one of the important festivals observed by Chinese all over the world. Many of the restaurant owners will take this advantage to showcase their individual version of mooncake taste and snowskin mooncake had been one of the latest trend to evolve over the past years. Zuan Yuan Restaurant in One World hotel is preparing their 2012 collection for this Mid-Autumm.
Started off our tasting with the classic baked mooncake follow by snowskin version.
Still this Supreme Mixed Nuts remains as one of the heavy weight classic version that many people love this.
Always comes to mooncake, I still prefer my classic version with White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk. Yolk is definately a must and without it is like cooking a plate of noodle without oil. 😀
Sweetened Red Beans with Green Tea Paste
One that stood out very well is White Coffee Lotus Paste with Walnuts, yes, they really do it in Coffee version that the flavour is not too strong, creamy and mild enough not to overpower the taste of the yolk and after taste of coffee is build upon your taste bud. One of a recommended one.
Red Bean with nuts
Comes to their snowskin version, they have pretty impressive range especially on the skin texture that I could not reveal it to you, certainly it stood up more than the rest. A bit soft chewy that pairs very well with the filling that they insert in.
Mini Snow Skin – HoneyDew Paste, Orange Flavour and Black Sesame seed.
Among those 3 flavours, it stood up by itself that Honeydew taste like rock melon sweet, orange flavour with robust taste like orange skin and Black sesame is just perfect.
The mooncakes are available in beautiful gift boxes which can hold 4 or 8 pieces mooncakes, from now until 30 September 2012. The mini snowskin mooncakes are priced at RM10 each while the regular-sized ones are priced at RM18 upwards per piece.
