“The only thing sweeter than union is reunion.” – Kathleen McGowan
The mooncake – a hallmark of the festival – is a round pastry traditionally filled with lotus-seed or bean paste and salted egg yolk. Its circular shape signifies domestic harmony and the fullness of the moon. Non-traditional mooncakes include “snow skin” mooncakes and innovative flavours or fillings. It’s common for mooncakes to be exchanged as gifts between businesses and clients, and family and friends, as the exchange symbolizes respect and esteem.
Bengawan Solo (#B1-28) celebrates the festival with a range of traditional mooncakes and snow skin mooncakes. Golden-brown pastry wrapped around a velvety lotus seed paste embedded with savory yolks, the Pure Lotus Seed Paste with Double Yolk is retailing at $12 per piece. If you prefer snow skin mooncakes, the Pandan Skin Pure Lotus Seed Paste (retailing at $10.50 per piece) got you covered.
