It was fun strolling around Chinatown last weekend to look for the traditional mooncakes at 大同饼家 Tai Thong Cake Shop. I was there for the ordinary mooncakes – no snow skin, big fancy hotel name or special flavour. Reasonably priced at $8.50 a piece for Five Assorted Nuts and $9.50 for Lotus Seed Paste with Double York, it was no wonder there was a queue.
They definitely nailed the Lotus Seed Paste with Double York mooncake which was rich, creamy and not too sweet. I have no idea why The Straits Time featured the Five Assorted Nuts flavour though. The taste was just funky to me and I love nuts! My mum said that it’s a very traditional flavour but good food transcends all generation right?
Anyway, have a great Mid-Autmun Festival tomorrow with mooncakes & lanterns! 🙂
