Under the golden brown hues of our traditional baked mooncake lies a skilfully folded white lotus paste. Made with reduced sugar, it is delightful on its own but also comes in single yolk, double yolk and four yolks as alternate options. For the discerning traditionalist, bring a box of our Mixed Nuts with Chicken Ham. A box meant for fans of savoury treats, let us pamper your taste buds with the mixture of nuts and chicken ham, padding the filling generously for you to enjoy a mouthful of goodness with every bite.
Consider too the Black Sesame with Taro, guaranteed to be popular with those who enjoy the heady aroma of roasted black sesame. An original recipe, the filling has a rich, nutty and roasted flavour tempered with the mild sweetness of taro. Lotus seeds and cashew nuts add texture and a gentle complexity. The classic baked mooncakes are presented in a Nostalgic Red or Elegant Turquoise box. Both are patterned with flowers in full bloom to represent the bountiful harvest that the festival celebrates.
