Mooncakes from Chynna

Mooncakes. What's that?

Some of you noobs out there might ask...

Uncle Google said it's a "Chinese pastry traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival (yup, it's on this coming weekend!). Typical mooncakes are round or rectangular pastries with thick filling usually made from lotus seed paste is surrounded by a relatively thin crust and may contain yolks".

The packaging - a long rectangular contemporary box with a iron lock. Looks like a traditional treasure chest box to me.

Introducing the Chynna Mooncakes by KL Hilton, thanks to Feebz!

The mini mooncakes printed with Chinese symbols and Chynna logo. This one comes with a single yolk - averagely sweet and taste great.

The mooncakes are placed in boxes and packed as a set, in a classic wooden chest box which makes a great collection, specially for box lovers. Haha!

Here's one that we brought back from Lavender Cake Shop & Bistro in JB. Tried samples of nearly every kind they have there and we ended up buying boxes of the normal ones for our families, plus this Strawberry Snow-skin Mooncake with black bean paste inside.

So anyone's up for a mooncake festival gathering?
Time for some mooncakes hunting!
