mooncake is a big thing in the mid-autumn festival. many sellers depend on this once in a yr event to rig in big bucks! my love for mooncake started in the 60s which u can read abt in MoonCake of www.mastercheong.blogspot.com. like it so much that i can eat good ones 1 box a day!
from this yr onwards i'll do a serious review of whatever mooncakes i come across. to kick off the series, i've on hand the 60 something yrs old HK Wing Wah Mooncake. WW in short.
it's quite typical of HK style to pack their stuff in very nice metal box. WW shld b d 1st 1 to intro White Lotus paste here. tested its mini type. skin is very thin or fine which's an art. prefer the paste to be sweeter. egg yolk rather dried lacked freshness or what in cantonese called 'oil water'. amazed by its Ingredients n Nutrition information labels which many others dont disclose.
