Fresh Meat Moon Cakes (鲜肉月饼) – Shanghai, China


I definitely need to share this with all my readers here. To maybe all Asians in Southeast Asian countries, moon cakes are probably known to us as those round sweet lotus seed filling cakes that we eat during the Mid-Autumn Festival… But in these parts from Shanghai and up north of China, these meat pies are known as moon cakes to them. And the best part is, they are in sale all year round! One of my colleagues bought for me when I was working in Shanghai and this is really awesome! Check out the pics!
