2012 Mooncakes @ Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel KL

Hi everyone! Just a friendly reminder that Mid-Autumn Festival is this Sunday 30th September. Have you had mooncakes yet? And have you bought mooncakes to eat while moon gazing this weekend as well as playing with your candles and lanterns? I can't wait!

I am glad that I got to try Tai Zi Heen's mooncakes before the end of the mooncake season. I am usually a fan of the snow skin mooncakes, but the baked ones from Tai Zi Heen totally impressed me! Thin skin, and uber smooth filling - just look at the photo below!

We're off to buy mooncakes
For our dearest mummy and grandma




Tai Zi Heen offers 5 types of baked mooncakes as well as 4 snowskin ones. I tried all the baked ones - HK white lotus paste with single egg yolk (RM24), pandan lotus paste with melon seeds (RM24), five variety nuts with rum and raisin (RM25), oatmeal, macadamia nut and sun dried apricot (RM22) and cappuccino with cocoa nibs (RM22). I liked them all, but my favorite is the classic white lotus paste one. The filling (paste) was really smooth and the salted egg yolk was pretty good too. These are also the least sweet baked mooncakes I've tried this year, so it is suited for those who are more health conscious but still want to enjoy mooncakes.

The kids enjoyed the oatmeal, macadamia nut and sun dried apricot as well the pandan lotus paste one. We finished 8 of these in less than 2 days. ;D

  1. Looks good. Lovely photos. I don't like those with nuts though. Will be posting on our local Sibu ones this Sunday, the actual festival day.

    1. I don't really like the nuts one too, but I ate 2-3 pieces of this. Nowadays the orange peel taste not so strong, bearable for me.

  3. Your kids are very talented models =). Somehow I prefer thick skin mooncake compared to thin skin one.

  4. ooh, i'm usually not a fan of nut-filled mooncakes, but a version with rum is tempting indeed. i guess they keep the rum content at a minimal though so that it remains kid-friendly :D gosh, soon so already the mooncake season is coming to an end. it almost feels like just last week that the hotels started selling mooncakes, heh :D

    1. Me neither. My kids wont touch the nuts one as well. They usually like the smooth fillings, ie lotus paste or pandan. The oatmeal one was a hit with them, they kept taking out all the oatmeal filling and leaving us with none.

  6. The skin is so thin... The chefs there really have the skills. The oatmeal, macadamia and apricot one sounds really interesting.
