Mooncake – The traditional style


It is the mooncake festival once again and you can see mooncakes sold every where. I personally find the mass produced not as nice as those sold by smaller shops. That’s why I always go back to Toh Yuen, Jalan Campbell to get my mooncakes.

I bought a few today because they are just hot out of the oven. Toh Yuen is an old traditional chicken rice and dim sum restaurant which have been around for decades. It is one of those greasy, olden Chinese kopitiam. They are famous for their beef soup as well.

My favourite mooncake is the ping pei or snow skin one. The above purple one is the yam paste. I only manage a bite ‘cos my kids ate all of them. 🙁


This here is the durian mooncake and the smell of durian is as real as can be.

Beside the durian, I bought one coconut and one golden ham and nuts.

Toh Yuen’s mooncake is not halal.

However, there are many types of halal mooncakes now which are certified halal. To our Muslims friends who are fasting, do get some for buka puasa. Mooncakes are really nice.

Ok, I am off to the pasar ramadhan now. Woohoo, a month of good foods!

    godoffoods – Toh Yuen only sells from their own shop. Yeah, their biscuit, we call kong chai peng is good too. I think cos I hate those, never eat before. LOL.

    chocolate – Toh Yuen is NOT halal. 😛 But they are open only during the day. Pasar Ramadhan. I will do a post this weekend.
