Mid-Autumn Festival, which is also commonly known as Mooncake Festival is less than a month away. Just like how the name suggests, mooncakes are here to make their ubiquitous appearance with some traditions to stay.
I was glad to try out the Delicate Cantonese Snow Skin Mooncakes from St Regis Singapore. Yan Ting Restaurant has came up with an enticing selection of snow skin mooncakes including flavours like durian, mixed berries, green tea, purple sweet potato and royal milk tea with chocolate champagne.
|Assorted Snow Skin Mooncake (Exclude durian flavor)
Box of 8 @ $68.80
I have to say the packaging has bought me over before I even try out the mooncakes.
It sure is an ideal gift for the elders and your parents.
Mixed Berries Snowskin Mooncake with Strawberry Paste
Box of 8 @$66.80
It’s tough to pick just one favourite from the selection because they all tasted satisfying with the much tenderness. The Green Tea flavour has a well balance of tea bitterness that is well pulled off by the sweet mooncake paste. The Mixed Berries flavour on the other hand leaves both sweet and slight sour aftertaste due to the berries, and it turned out very addictive.

What took me by surprise was the alcohol intensity found in the Royal Milk Tea Snowskin Mooncake with Champagne Truffle. A bite into the truffle oozes out pretty strong alcohol. It sure was a terrific rendition of mooncakes and definitely a favourite for alcohol lovers.
