Garden's Crispy Skin Yam Mooncake

During Mid Autumn season, my workplace is usually floaded with mooncakes given by bankers and vendors. We almost get to try all the mooncakes in Singapore from hotels to bakeries but usually are traditional white lotus with 2 yolks mooncakes. Personally I don't fancy mooncakes but everytimes there are new mooncakes in the pantry I will go in and take a peak. Most of the time I'm more impressed by their packaging than the mooncake!

Last weekend my colleague mentioned that the Teochew style Crispy Yam Mooncake from Garden is good and every year she will get a few boxes of it from them. So me too get some for my family to try.

Crispy Skin Yam Mooncake with 1 yolk (4 pcs @ $37, $10 per pc)

The pastry was very flaky and melt in the mouth. The yam paste was smooth and not overly sweet. Oh look at the yolk, nice oily colour.

Traditional Mixed Nuts & Seed (4 pcs @ $38, $10 per pc)

Bought 2 pcs of mixed nuts mooncakes for my Aunt Peggy. She liked it and said it's nice to munch on it.

I used to eat this crispy yam paste mooncake from Crown Hotel, now cannot find it anymore.
This year I also bought this from Garden too, the skin not to thick and the paste not too sweet.

Hi DG,

Great that nowadays most of the mooncakes are not too sweet catering to a more health conscious community.

You girls are so lucky! I've to make my own! hehe... The store bought ones are too big & too sweet for me. I prefer the smaller ones. Btw, thanks for stopping by my site earlier. Hope to hear from you more often. Have a great day.
Cheers, Kristy

hey wen, DG,

The ex-Crown Prince pastry chef is now at Peony Jade. I tried their Original Ex-Crown Prince Flaky Teochew "Oor Nee" Mooncake with Golden Japanese Pumpkin & it's still excellent! Should try next year.
