Over the years, the only moon cake that we get to see and hear out in the market is either some earth shattering name like the golden phoenix is alive or the snow white meets black bear moon cake. Fine, maybe i am exaggerating as usual.
However let me ask you, how often do you find yourself buying the original moon cake, the one that has simple lotus paste and a simple egg yolk? Chances are you will say "what people eat such an outdated flavour one meh?"
By the time you run through the list of different fillings offered by all the big hotels out there, that would be sit last on your list.
Anyways, since i am in Melbourne, beggars can't be choosers, oh wait, beggars can't afford the exorbitant price tag. A box of Wing Wah mooncakes (4) lotus paste with 2 egg yolks retails for AUD42.50.
For AUD 14 per piece, its darn right expensive, even i know that.
Bite into it and all is forgotten.
The yolk, the lotus paste, brings back childhood memories, the days where you can have any mooncake as long as the filling was lotus paste.
Even the box has a hint of retro.
Since i don't have a family to share it with, i mean i already shared half the box with my sister, you cut it into quarters! half a yolk per piece yo!
Now the wallet has to diet and my body of course, duh.
