The snowskin mooncakes for this year’s Mid-autumn Festival come in delicious, newfangled flavours
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.
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.
