Mid-Autumn Festival at Compass One
“Reunion reveals friendship potential that haven’t yet been emerged in the past.” – Toba Beta
“Time and time again, we reconnect. It’s like the universe nudges us to give it one more chance.” – Nikki Rowe
As the mid-autumn festival represents the reunion of families, families will have dinner together on that night, have a sip of tea with mooncake as they appreciate the full moon. Most mooncakes consist of a thick, tender pastry skin enveloping a sweet, dense filling, and may contain one or more whole salted egg yolks in their center as the symbol of the full moon. Here are some mooncake recommendations for you to try at Compass One.
Bee Cheng Hiang (#B1-26) is offering several unique mooncakes such as their Signature Bakkwa Mooncake – filled with melon seeds, nuts, orange skin peels and bits of Bee Cheng Hiang’s Gourmet Bakkwa, as well as the Mooncake Eight – which is specially crafted to break into 8 equal pieces perfect for sharing. The Mooncake Eight is filled with silky smooth white lotus paste which compliments well with the savoury flavours of the salted egg yolk.
