The snowskin moon­cakes rolled out this Mid-au­tumn Fes­ti­val come in new­fan­gled flavours

1 PULLED TEA PER­FEC­TION

The culi­nary team at Grand Hy­att Sin­ga­pore (tel: 6887 5492) takes in­spi­ra­tion from one of our favourite lo­cal milk tea bev­er­ages to craft the teh tarik and cho­co­late truf­fle snowskin moon­cake. It’s as in­dul­gent as it gets, es­pe­cially when you savour the deca­dent core that com­bines the rich­ness and creami­ness of milk tea with the slight bit­ter­ness of truf­fles.

3 CIT­RUS CRE­ATION

Ex­ec­u­tive Chi­nese chef Leong Chee Yeng of Jade restau­rant (tel: 6877 8943) at The Fuller­ton Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore de­buts the yuzu with chia seeds snowskin moon­cake, in­ter­est­ingly shaped to re­sem­ble the an­cient Chi­nese belt buckle. Each pale yel­low treat is packed with a re­fresh­ing yuzu paste, and gen­er­ously studded with crunchy chia seeds for added tex­ture and health ben­e­fits. Light and not cloy­ing, it’s per­fect for that mid-af­ter­noon snack.

2 TRULY FRUITY

Bursting with sweet and sour flavours, the mango yo­ghurt snowskin moon­cake at Sin­ga­pore Mar­riott Tang Plaza Ho­tel (tel: 6831 4708) is rem­i­nis­cent of the child­hood favourite of lime and vanilla pop­si­cle. The bright orange-hued con­fec­tion is filled with an in­vig­o­rat­ing and lus­cious mango yo­ghurt paste, with a lime mar­garita truf­fle cen­tre for an al­co­holic kick.

4TROPICAL INFUSION

If you think Good­wood Park Ho­tel’s (tel: 6730 1868) sour­sop with cala­mansi snowskin moon­cake sounds fa­mil­iar, that’s be­cause this is ver­sion 2.0 of its first of­fer­ing in­tro­duced in 2009. The skin is an eye-catch­ing lime green colour, but the real beauty is what’s in­side—a zesty cala­mansi puree that com­ple­ments the sweet and juicy pulp of the sour­sop fruit.

5 PRETTY IN PINK

The Raf­fles Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore’s (tel: 6412 1122) acai berry and chia seeds snowskin moon­cake is not only pretty to look at, but also flavour­some and healthy. There’s ab­so­lutely no guilt as you bite into its de­li­cious fill­ing made from nu­tri­tious berries, in­ter­laced with or­ganic chia seeds and tangy Greek yo­ghurt.
