We got to try chef's recommendation this festive season too, namely the new assorted nut in bamboo charcoal skin mooncake. A fascinating and yummy addition to the baked skin series, they combined the fragrant assorted nuts into a distinctive charcoal crust. Love the nuts and taste. Good stuff.

The snow skin stars this year is a rich blend of mini "red prawn" durian moon cake with egg cream, mini tiramisu paste with assorted honey nuts, and mini chestnut paste with diced hawthorn and pineapple paste. We had the mini peanut butter snow skin too, yes you read that right, peanut butter! Instilled with Japanese purple potato paste and yam omachi, it's a great blend of Chinese and Japanese, with a surprise of omachi in the heart of the mooncake.
