Breadtalk is probably Singapore’s most popular bread-makers, and they have also worked hard on their 2012 Mooncake collection.
If you are the type who wants to impress your mother-in-law, perhaps you can consider the Premium collection with 6 pieces in a box at $88.80 (very auspicious number). This comes in a chest of drawers in pretty ‘Little Nonya’ type pinkish-purplish design (where she can keep her stash), AND an exquisite ‘Liu Li’ thrown in.
An exquisite ‘Crouching Dragon Hidden Pearl’ Liuli in a mooncake box is the last thing I would think of. Impressive, or some people will say “Win already loh”!
However, I am the boring and unconventional type when it comes to mooncakes. And I only have my mum to impress. So I went for the Classic at $44.80 (4 pieces/box) which comes with flavours such as Green Tea Lotus Paste, Taro and White Lotus Single Yolk. More value for money too.
While my mum thought green tea flavoured lotus mooncake could go stronger in its matcha flavour, the light pandan flavoured with slight sweetness and pandan fragrance was easily our favourite.
