It's the mooncake season yet again, with the Mid-autumn festival just around the corner. I was invited for a short and sweet mooncake tasting session just the other day over at Dynasty Restaurant, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel. They showcased their 'Mooncake Odyssey' range, with an aim to encourage guests and travellers to 'Live Life To Discover'.

Back by popular demand are Dynasty's home-made signatures, the Baked Assorted Nuts & Seeds mooncake which had generous portions of various nuts and seeds combined with hint of spices and lots of sweetness. We had the Baked 'Jiang Nam' Red Bean Paste mooncake with melon seeds and the Snow Skin Fruity Durian Paste ones to name a few.

This autumn's exciting new creations are the various snow skin mooncake types, namely the Snow Skin Mint with Lotus Paste, the Snow Skin Red Bean Paste, Snow Skin Taro Paste with egg yolk, Snow Skin Paste Single Salted Yolk and Snow Skin Pumpkin Paste.
|The snow skin mooncake types were available on top of the conventional ones|
All these are good and well, but I always still prefer the traditional mooncake type, which is basically lotus paste, or white lotus paste with salted egg yolk. Of course, if you're in for new flavours, go try these out!
