Traditional Mooncakes @ Thye Moh Chan

Posted on September 5, 2013


Mid-Autumn Festival is around the corner and for the matter of fact just a fortnight away.

It can be a chore looking out for the best mooncakes as there are easily a ‘zillion’ choices to choose from. Hotels and popular brands start lingering in atriums of shopping centres promoting their products and it is a must to take that opportunity to secure the discounts.

This iconic Teochew confectionary shop is famous for its traditional handcrafted pastries. The brand is proud to unveil an exquisite Mid-Autumn collection comprising signature Teochew pastries and mooncakes, which will be available at both Chinatown Point and Parkway Parade outlets till 19 September 2013.

There are five various flavours to choose from, Sweet tau sar, Salty tau sar, Yuan Yang, Double Delight and yes, Durian.

Thye Moh Chan’s layered pastries could easily be loved by both young and old. The crusts are light and flaky, every bite is substantial with delectable ingredients.

Double Delight, Medium $24.80/4pcs.

The delights consist of a special crystal filling and red bean paste. The unique blend is made up of winter melon, melon seeds, dried orange peel, white sesame and glutinous rice flour.

The interesting combination was tasty and surprisingly not too sweet. It was pleasantly scented by the orange peels and sesame, with a good texture from the melon seeds and winter melon cubes.

Yuan Yang (Single Yolk)
Medium $24.80/4pcs
Large $22.80/pc.

Savoury mung bean paste, fried shallots, white sesame, spicy pork floss and salted yolk. It is the union of the most unexpected ingredients but the results were amazing.

Sweet Tau Sar (with single yolk)
Medium $24.80/4pcs
Large $22.80/pc.

Brimming with sweet mung bean paste prepared from scratch, this rendition is probably the utmost preferred flavour that is easily accepted by everyone. IMG_6259- TMZ

Salty Tau Sar (with single yolk)
Medium $24.80/4pcs
Large $22.80/pc.

The variant version of the sweet tau sar is this, the salted. Filled with savory mung bean paste, fried shallots, white sesame, white pepper and salted yolk, this variation is almost similar to the Yuan Yang minus the pork floss. I prefer the latter as it was the spicy pork floss which made it gratifying.

If you can’t imagine how good these are, do drop by any outlet and give it a try.
