Dear readers, how much do you love mooncakes? This year so far, I have tasted 34 mooncake flavours ;)
The most recent ones that we sampled were from Toh Yuen Chinese Restaurant in Hilton Petaling Jaya. There are a total of 6 traditionally baked mooncakes (RM22 each) and 6 mini snow skin mooncakes (RM13 each) to choose from here. I managed to try all the snow skin ones and 4 of the baked ones. The mooncakes are available from 1 August till 30 September 2012.
The handcrafted mooncakes are elegantly packaged in a box with oriental motifs, that comes in three vibrant colours - red and black, turquoise and green. Mooncake boxes these days are great - you can often use them afterwards for storing your stationery or jewellery.
The traditional baked mooncake flavours on offer here are white lotus paste with single yolk, green tea paste with single yolk, red bean paste with sunflower seeds, five nuts, lotus paste with double yolk and pandan paste with single yolk. The salted egg yolks here are very nice and moist. The paste filling were all smooth. The five nuts received high praise from my mum and cousin (a guest at our home that evening), both big lovers of this mooncake stating that it wasn't too sweet and the nut selection was good.
Baby D eager to get his hands on the mooncake!

After our food review at Toh Yuen (will blog about this soon), we were also treated to the whole selection of mini snow skin mooncakes. The snow skin mooncake flavours available are lotus paste with sunflower seeds, red bean and banana paste, pumpkin and pandan paste, yam and strawberry paste, green tea paste with cheesecake and durian paste. What a beautiful, colorful array of mooncakes! The snow skin mooncakes here have thicker skin, hence it's wonderfully chewy. My favorite flavour is the green tea paste with cheesecake, the slightly bitter green tea went well with the sweet, smooth cheesecake.
